I consider Tattoos to be an art form. As with any art form, there is good art and there is trash. Unfortunately the distinction between the two is a personal opinion.

I have seen some of the most beautiful women ever, with the most tasteful erotic tattoos. I lean to vines, flower and cherry blossom, art on women. I also like some of the oriental figures but, again, I am very opinionated about the figure, it must fit to the body and the taste of the artist and subject.

I think the worst junk is homemade, prison, and just indiscriminate figures with no rhyme or reason with respect to placement and content.

There you go. I have no tattoos, my wife and couple of daughters have very small simple tattoos (I believe represent some sort of rebellion against authority, but not too much).

As I said, tattoo art, as music, is in the eyes of the beholder, I would like to beholdin some of the beautiful women sporting tasteful artwork.

8 hours over two sessions. Modeled off of my wife.

Its tattoo 1 of what will at this point end up a 3 (if not 4) frame series on the same theme. The others will involve engine cowling and more components to make up the whole illusion of an old Warbird (modeled on a Corsair and an A-26 Invader).

:shocked: Dude. Sorry, but that is seriously messed up. People are hard to ink well and that gun monkey does not have the skill to pull it off. Her calf is bigger than her thigh, boobs are bubared, and her face is... well, just not right. Good concept, but save up some and go more than a mile off base to find your next inker.

It is exactly the same thing: mar (mär)
tr.v. marred, mar·ring, mars 1. To inflict damage, especially disfiguring damage, on.
2. To impair the soundness, perfection, or integrity of; spoil.


n.A disfiguring mark; a blemish.

I've been fighting the urge to get another one. Few months back I was working with a lot of people 10 years or so younger than myself and they were just covered with them.

Started getting the urges. I do have 2 more that I want done but it can wait. I hope.

I'm slowly working on a half sleeve. I get a little more done every few months when my next idea hits me and I dwell on it for a month or two. I'm also wanting to get some work done on the back of my leg, I'm still mulling it over.

My funny story for getting ink is I went to get a shamrock on each side of my chest when I was in the Army. I was slammed drunk. I woke up in the morning and the color looked good, they were shaded well... but I had the artist put one about an eighth of an inch lower than the other. You wouldn't notice it until I mention it and I didn't notice it for a couple of weeks.

I think I am up to ten or twelve now.

There's nothing worse than seeing what I consider a attractive guy and then you find out he has tat's.

I have 1 tattoo, it's a black & grey portrait of my eldest son. I didn't get it until I was 27, even though I spent a lot of time in/around tattoo shops/friends with lots of ink. It took me a long time to find something I thought was truly meaningful. People that don't 'get' tattoos can just think of it the same way that other people don't 'get' why they own XX of guns. I agree that some are tacky, and can look aweful. But at the same time, it is an art form! There are people out there that are just as talented as any modern day paint & canvas artist. It is all very subjective. But in the end, it's an 'to each their own' type of thing to me. My wife has 9, and while I wouldn't like many of them for me, they mean something to her, and that is good enough for me.

I love this tree! The more I keep seeing tree tats, the more they speak to me...

Right now I am contemplating swallows which really intrigue me because of the history of them but I want a cross between old school and some special people they would represent for me.

I have a portrait that I want done, too, but I want it done in like two hours instead of the multiple trips it will probably take. Same goes for a half-leg of Koi that I want. I will be joined with some other things that have special meanings to me or things that I love such as a frog or two, bird of paradise, maybe a water lily or two (I am a huge "fan" of Monet) and some ribbons of two colors (think pink for breast cancer but only it's two other diseases).

Ha!

I did get a "new" one last night. I previously had my nose pierced for about 4-6 months and had to get a series facet blocks. Since they are done in an OR and you are given anesthesia (but not totally out) they still treat it like surgery and you have to remove all jewelry. I had my nose out for about three hours and it closed up that fast. We finally got around to redoing it yesterday as one of the reasons I was waiting for surgery last week where I would have to remove it again.

Personally I pity anyone who is so starved for attention/affection/approval that they will mutilate their body to get it.Personally I pity anyone that is so closed minded as to pity another for decisions they make with their own bodies.

I will say this. EVERY single one of the many tattoos that I have are covered by a short sleeved shirt and a pair of jeans. Not a single one of my tattoos is ever visible unless I want it to be, which is a rarity. I did not get my tattoos for attention, acceptance, or affection. I got them because I wanted them.

I actually can say that I pity you for being one of those individuals that passes blind judgment on complete strangers without knowing a single detail about them other than the fact that they have tattoos.

We were at a local pet expo this last weekend and had a teenage girl come up to us and ask my girlfriend about her tattoos. This girl was a foreign exchange student from Brazil and recognized the Christo de Redentor my girlfriend had on her forearm. It's weird how many people come up to her and ask her about her religious tattoos. She's actually had people thank her for getting them, which I think is pretty strange.

There's NOTHING wrong with anyone's tribe. I have numerous American Indian friends from numerous tribes.

My tats are military related, Harley Davidson related, and of course, MC tats. My diamond tat is my latest. I want a large blue Ozzy style demon on my left breat/shoulder, and a suppressed 1911 tat on my right back shoulder.

The only ink I have right now is in my pens. I like the idea of the bullet hole at my Ground Zero too, but I can't do it while my mother is alive. She'd see me in a swimsuit, and have a heart attack. :faint:

I don't have any and don't want any.

I could see some tatoos (military, etc) but what I don't get is people that have them all over their bodies. To each his or her own though.

I always thought this would make a cool tree tat.

So when it comes time to sell the "investment"? :shocked:

I never cease to be amazed as to what people will have permanently drawn on their bodies... some of the stuff I see is so hideous it should be illegal :rofl:

Same here. To each their own but personally, I don't care at all for them and to me they're a big turn off.

There's nothing worse than seeing what I consider a attractive guy and then you find out he has tat's.

Instant :ack:

I could not have said it better myself... although, in my case we'd need to replace the word "guy" with "woman".

I am a professional artist, and I love (almost) all forms of art... but I cannot possibly imagine under what circumstances I would want something permanently drawn on my body.

You came close to choking your chicken? :rofl::rofl:


The punch line is "I can honestly say no man's cock hangs lower than mine" if you must know.

I think you'd get a lot more people thinking, "why does he advertise choking his chicken?" :dunno:
