Heres my only tattoo:

I'm hoping that over the next few years I can turn it into a half sleeve or so. I think that would be cool. I just can't think of anything to add to it at the minute. Any ideas, anyone?


Sorry about the size.

I'm serious. I've never had the cash for good pro tattoos so I have the home-made kind. I think I have 8 of them. I did most of them myself. It's not so bad once you learn how to do it, get used to the feeling, and have a 40 oz. at your side! :twisted:

There are only so many body parts one can reach by oneself, and tattooing is a two-handed process (machine in one hand, stretch the skin tight with the other), so your locational choices become rather limited that way, though I do have a large tribal dragon, a gargoyle bat and Kevin Smith's Buddy Christ on my inner calves that I did while apprenticing for my license.




hahahaha....buddy christ ....That's one i've wanted for a while now!




I have one on my left shoulder (back really) of the coyote with his hands around the road runners neck

I'm thinking of getting this on my left calf...(or would that be too small for detail?)

I have 12, I got my first when I was 31 after alot of years of wanting one.

A word of caution to anyone who wants one....make sure you think carefully of where to place it, not just what it is. If you are female, you should consider the option of being able to cover it if you want, with clothing. Sometimes you dont want the outside world knowing more about you than you choose to share.

All 12 of mine I can hide if I want, and show off if I want. I can still pass as normal.

And someone earlier talked about being 80 and getting an MRI and having the medical technician wondering about the tattoos...this sort of happened to me. I have my nipples pierced as well, and had to go in for a mamogram. The technicians were astonished, wanted me to remove the rings, and didnt know what to do. I explained that the rings werent standard CBR's and cant be removed without special cutters, and that the mamogram would still work with the rings in, there would just be the image of two metal rings on the film. I guess in about 20 years this will become common place, but for now, I was the first person this clinic had seen with piercings. Seems I'm just ahead of my time!

do u guys watch miami ink? i have seen some cool tattoos on that show like of coyfish and tigers and stuff. but what i can't get is how they are able to sit still for something like 7 hrs straight with needles going into them like that.


I'd love a 7 hour tattoo. The ones I've had nearly put me to sleep. After the initial scratchy feeling goes numb, it's just this vibrating feeling (for me anyhow) which I find calming and pleasant. Chalk it up to endorphins maybe? I dunno.

I actually do plan to get quality professional tattoos done when I can afford it. I have a back piece planned out. It's going to combine a number of things related to my interests and images that I find aesthetically pleasing. I have it all sketched out. It doesn't look cluttered at all. It looks like a scene in which all the elements are meant to me there.

Basically, it's a cemetery at night, an imaginary cemetery in which all my favorite dead musicians are buried. In the center of the cemetery is a gnarled, twisted old dead tree. A guitar resembling my acoustic guitar is leaning against the tree. There might be a cowboy hat hanging from a stubby branch, and there might be an owl or other nocturnal bird perched in the tree. Above the cemetery will be a full moon and lots of bats flying around. There might also be a snake or two slithering between the graves. The graves are kind of crumbling and bent at odd angles so there won't be an issue of straight lines versus the human body. And there might be some kind of mysterious element like a hand raising a lantern up from behind one of the graves. I guess it sounds complicated, but I can easily fit it on an 8x11 piece of paper, or smaller.

I also want to get a detailed color pro tattoo of my legless lizard, probably on my arm. I have ideas for full sleeves, but they keep changing, so I'm going to get the back piece and the lizard and go from there.
