not w/the quiz part, though, as I already know too well I have OCD or else I would not be apologizing for the appearance of the text in the above post.

What if someone gets one done of _your_ tat?

I want to half-sleeve my left arm but I'm not sure what all I'm going to include. The next thing I'll do there will be a cover-up either incorporating a Texas theme or an anti-teaching theme. whichever design could cover up best.

Viva La Sam (thatgirl), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:06 (fifteen years ago) link

Sam I think covering up a Texas design is one of the (many) things that can catch you a death sentence. But an anti-teaching tattoo sounds very boring and un-Sam-like (because you're not boring, not because you're pro-teaching), so yeah, Texas it is.

Begs2Differ (Begs2Differ), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:08 (fifteen years ago) link

or just don't get the tattoo

Begs2Differ (Begs2Differ), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:08 (fifteen years ago) link

An anti teaching tatto could be very cool, but how do you represent that in a diagram/picture?

mei (mei), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:09 (fifteen years ago) link

no, the Texas theme would be a cover-up of some dumb kanji. my artist had the anti-teaching idea. something involving broken pencils or the like.

I have one TX tat and plan to get many, many more.

Viva La Sam (thatgirl), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:09 (fifteen years ago) link

I need a cover up, too, of a really ugly dragon's head tattoo... I think I want another lotus.

When I got my first (and so far only) tattoo, I always said I wouldn't get another one until I published a book, and then I'd get the bar code from the book. So I dunno. I think I'll probably do it.

i'm never going to get a satisfactory answer to that, am i?

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:52 (fifteen years ago) link

I really kind of hope the answer is no, jess. No offense or anything.

Allyzay, Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:54 (fifteen years ago) link

i mean, vaginas already taste like metal dipped in butter anyway, so surely this is just overkill

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Thursday, 4 March 2004 20:56 (fifteen years ago) link

maybe cat-woman vaginas are different, i dunno

so the barcode has been done to death has it? at least it was a good idea when i though of it a long time ago.

i am more into black magic markers anyways.

kephm, Thursday, 4 March 2004 21:05 (fifteen years ago) link

I think the bar code is a fantastic idea - especially since it means something important.

Parade-rainer-on-ers.

I think I'll get a brass-knuckled fist framed by broken pencils and graffitti.

Viva La Sam (thatgirl), Thursday, 4 March 2004 21:15 (fifteen years ago) link

It's not necessarily as important as it could be, though, which is why I'm not sure and why I keep putting it off. Partly I want to ring myself up at the cash register, after all, which I don't think I can do with this bar code, since it's not being sold many offline places.

Tep (ktepi), Thursday, 4 March 2004 21:33 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah, my idea was just a random barcode, a bag of frozen peas or something. this was like 1989.

luna (luna.c), Thursday, 4 March 2004 22:00 (fifteen years ago) link

I knewed I recognized it from somewhere. I'm not sure where I would suggest locating it. I was originally gonna get mine on my lower back, mainly due to the symmetry of it and that would probably work for yours, but that is the so-called "tramp stamp" location innit? Even if the design is not at all one of them.

Side of the foot maybe?

Uptoeleven, Friday, 4 May 2007 10:23 (twelve years ago) link

Speaking of which a friend of mine recently had one done there. It's a cartoon of a teapot pouring tea into a cup. She was drunk and on K at the time.

Uptoeleven, Friday, 4 May 2007 10:23 (twelve years ago) link

creme, are you either Chinese or, um, Celtic or Maori or something?

Mark C, Friday, 4 May 2007 10:26 (twelve years ago) link

I like the idea of having it somewhere not necessarily exposed unless I choose to (working in a corporate environment and all). My current tat is on the left upper arm, above the t-shirt sleeve line, but bloody hell, it's impossible to get girls shirts that aren't all cap sleeves these days.

Is yours on the inner or outer side of your leg?

I like the idea of tats as slightly hidden, that a flash of them is like some kind of hidden knowledge.

I'd love to get the S3 thing on the nape of my neck, just below the hairline, but daren't. I want it somewhere *I* can see it, though. So perhaps side of foot would be good.

Masonic Boom, Friday, 4 May 2007 10:28 (twelve years ago) link

Outside of my leg. It had to be somewhere broad enough to accomodate so much poetry. Your point about being slightly hidden is a nice one and on reflection perhaps the inside would have been better. too late now.

i'm not supposed to expose it to UV for 4-6 weeks which means I can't wear shorts. sucks. although, i don't mind the idea of it fading a bit and looking slightly less fresh. wish my bleedin' hairs would grow back though.

Uptoeleven, Friday, 4 May 2007 13:55 (twelve years ago) link

I'd prefer a picture of a hot dog bun, but the word "friday" in it instead of a hot dog. And a big "X" through it. NO HOT DOG BUNS ON FRIDAYS.

OK, what are the strangest tatoos someone you know has? One friend of mine has a Howard the Duck tattoo on one arm and a Crusty the clown tatoo on the other. Thankfully, they're incredibly well done. Another guy I met recently has a huge portrait of Carl Sagan on his calf. Very um . . . unique?

ENBB, Saturday, 5 May 2007 04:23 (twelve years ago) link

More pressing question - why did I all of a sudden forget how to spell tattoo?

ENBB, Saturday, 5 May 2007 04:24 (twelve years ago) link

haha flying nun logo.. i'd forgotten about that idea.

there's a part of me that wants to get the whispering penguins from the inner sleeve of rumours..

electricsound, Saturday, 5 May 2007 04:24 (twelve years ago) link

Hold on, how do you spell tatoo? I alwys thought it was two t's, but then the place i went on monday had a neon sign with only one.

Confused.

I have a friend who has a tat of Kermit the Fraog standing up in classic bent knee pose, holding a big crucifix in his left hand. She got it because, as she said, "I love Kermit and I love Jesus."

my friend is looking at getting a tattoo on her body side, but she suffers from psoriasis.

How much of a problem would this be? I've heard that it could flare up with a tattoo, she suffers mainly on her legs and elbows.

absolutely booming tattoo La Lechera

I don't know which my next one is! I'm running out of space on my left arm but there's some spots where I have ideas...I have enough now that it's not a giant deal to get one, like I'll get something on a lark, but the ideas I have for the spots to fill in never quite solidify. A coelacanth is one that's a strong contender (my left arm at present has a vulture, a crab, a snake, and two non-animal heavy-metal-related pieces)...but also, pandas are greatly loved by my younger son, so I think about getting a panda, but then I fret that vulture / crab / snake / panda leaves panda kind of the odd animal out

Thanks! It barely hurts now that I took 2 ibuprofens. I saw an actual coelacanth irl (preserved in a tub in the Field Museum) and I endorse this idea!

My gf just got her first tattoo (a really sweet bonding thing with her three best friends) & was asking me if i'd ever get one, after thought the only thing I could imagine paying tribute to permanently like that is my beloved cat. it may be in the cards.

The person whose Instagram that is — her name is Julia Campi0n3

Also I gotta say that the way she said “we’ll take this at your pace because this is your first time” showed me that this was going to be a good experience She checked in w me a number of times before it became clear that as long as I was talking about music, my dog, or my job I was sufficiently distracted from caring about the physical sensation. Would recommend her without hesitation!!

That's a lovely tribute, LL. I also got my first ink this year. Inner upper arm; the parts closest to the inner elbow and armpit were FUCKING JESUS CHRIST THAT HURTS but I am nevertheless planning to fill in a half sleeve with two more pieces.

Chuck_Tatum, Friday, 16 August 2019 12:41 (three months ago) link

I recommend following artists whose work you like on Instagram! I followed mine after erstwhile ilxor Carl Agatha got a tattoo by her and since have enjoyed both her images and captions. Knowing who she (the artist) is (as a person) a little better helped me decide that this was the right thing to do and helped me feel safe and confident about the decision.

I feel different! Also the magic of having my dog with me forever seems effective. I feel like her spirit hasn’t disappeared.
