oh boy a tattoo thread!

Getting my second one on Wednesday

Tatoff™ is a neat name, but Michelangelo would have been better: "The art of knowing what to leave on"
 
2012-06-10 01:44:17 PM  
I had the sound muted. did they say why they left on what they left on? Or is it just several sessions?
 
2012-06-10 02:03:38 PM  
What a pussy. Why not use an air grinder like a man?

I wonder what this would cost.

I know what that cost......
 
2012-06-10 03:00:03 PM  
Impressive. I've thought about getting one of mine redone. It didn't come out quite as I had expected. I'd get my shoulder wiped, redesigned and redone. So...as already asked, anyone know the cost?
 
2012-06-10 03:03:37 PM  
Pricing.

It will definitely cost more than the tattoo.

Not sure about that particular type of laser. My friend had one removed, said it cost him $1400 and hurt like hell.

Man if I had the money I be getting my third one now.
 
2012-06-10 03:20:10 PM  
I'm actually really impressed by how much that removed. I had no idea that it was that effective. Although I noticed that some parts seemed to stay behind, albeit slightly faint. I'm guessing this can take 2 or 3 passes to fully remove it.

I wonder what the recovery time is before they can do another pass.

Yeah I think you do sometimes have to have more than one session, given breaks in between to heal up.

The site I linked has examples that took as many as 10 sessions...at 49 bones per square inch...my color shoulder will cost a lot. I'll still need to think about it, but I'm leaning towards getting it wiped.

Oh god. A Fark tattoo thread. Let the hate-fest begin.

And for fun: Here's some tattoo etiquette.

1: Don't touch us. It's NOT ok to walk up to a tattooed person and grab/poke/prod us without asking permission.
2: We got our tattoos for us, not for you. This means that some of us don't want to answer questions about our tattoos.
3: Don't ask us how much it cost. Being polite and asking reasonable questions is ok, but only if we're talking about them.
4: Don't assume that because we're tattooed, we're unemployed.
5: When you get old, you'll look old. When we get old, we'll look old and tattooed, and we're ok with that.
6: If you're also tattooed, don't assume that we want to see your ink. Pulling up your shirt to show off your tattoos when we didn't ask to see them is both rude and creepy. If we cared, we would ask politely. If we didn't ask, then we don't care.

I can't stress point one enough. You'd be amazed at how many people think that just because my arms are covered, it's an open invitation to be accosted. Personally, I grab people back. CSB: I was driving through PA to get to VA and I stopped to pick up fireworks for the party I was attending. When I went to go cash out I reached out with my credit card to pay and the woman behind the counter grabbed my arm and pulled it in to get a better look. I did the same back to her and she was shocked. I reminded her that what she did was incredibly rude and how she didn't like me doing it. She swore she'd never do that again.

Ok, I'm done. Go back to hating on tattoos.

Okay. RaceBuddy has counted Logano as fastest on the track all day. These announcers aren't talking about that, in fact they think 2 other cars are faster, overall. MRN feed went down for me, so yeah, my racing experience has plummeted. These guys work for TNT, which makes RaceBuddy. They're not watching it?

It seems to me that, outside of the politics tab, there are 2 topics guaranteed to start a flame war. Circumcisions and tattoos. I'm gonna go get a tattoo on my wang and be the center of both topics forever!

I was like, "Wow! That's a powerful laser! Must be 100-200 watts!"

Then I decided to do the math. Boy, was I wrong.

A similar laser I found on the net produced 166 MEGAWATT pulses. Only for 6 nanoseconds, but daaaayummmm...

No wonder that ink evaporated.

[THIS. Though in your mind, ink may be about you own satisfaction and self-expression to you, but like it or not, employers are gonna have a reaction, sometimes positive but typically not.]

Of course, there's nothing wrong per se with a tattoo, after all you own your body, but know that people around you are going to make judgments and hiring decisions based on how you look. Maybe it's cool and antidisestablishmentarianism to sport ink, but it seems illogical to deliberately devalue your self-net-worth.

And you'll note that I said it's cool to start up a polite conversation. But most people get offended if someone with tattoos doesn't want to explain why they got them or "what they mean". A nice "Hey, nice tattoos, where did you get your work done" is a great way to start up a conversation. "Hey, nice tats, lemme see 'em", isn't.


RibbyK: 1: Don't touch us. It's NOT ok to walk up to a tattooed person and grab/poke/prod us without asking permission.
[Never crossed my mind to touch it, kinda like babies and pit bulls]


It happens more to women then men. My ex had a pretty big chest piece that would poke out the top of her shirts. Evidently people thought it would be acceptable to walk up to her in a bar and pull it down to see more. Same with pulling up t-shirt sleeves, etc.

RibbyK: 2: We got our tattoos for us, not for you. This means that some of us don't want to answer questions about our tattoos.
[Okay, I get that now. If it's only for you, then why show us? I cannot believe that all people who get public-facing tattoos did it 100% for themselves. Getting back at your parents, differentiating youself for the opposite sex and a general fark-you to society reasons come to mind.]


And I'm sure there are plenty of people who do get it for the "show-off" factor. It's just good to remember that not everyone is like that, and you shouldn't be offended if someone doesn't want to discuss their tattoos. To a lot of people they have their own personal reasons for being tattooed in specific places, with specific images. Just because you can see them, doesn't mean they're there to be asked about.

For example, my arms are completely covered. They're incredibly detailed and are solid pieces. It would take me a good twenty minutes to explain just one of my arms to someone, and to be honest, I don't really feel like talking about them with random strangers. For the most part, only some of my closest friends and my artists know everything about them. But because of my job, I'm a public figure in the modification community, so I'm pretty open and pleasant when someone comes and asks me polite questions. However if someone is just asking questions like "did it hurt", I tend to just brush them off with an "of course".

RibbyK: 6: If you're also tattooed, don't assume that we want to see your ink. Pulling up your shirt to show off your tattoos when we didn't ask to see them is both rude and creepy. If we cared, we would ask politely. If we didn't ask, then we don't care.
[If you and I both owned BMWs, I'd assume we'd at least look and perhaps a drive around the block]


For the most part, heavily tattooed people won't compare tattoos unless it comes up in conversation. The people that tend to show off their tattoos to strangers without being asked to see them tend to be the guys who got some sketchy $40 piece of flash while they were drunk on spring break. Again, this happens to women more than men.

First and foremost, you'll need to know one simple rule. Good tattoos aren't cheap, and cheap tattoos aren't good.

Now, when it comes to getting your tattoo done, you're going to want to shop around. A lot of studios have artist portfolios online, so that's a good place to start. What you're specifically going to want to look for is original artwork. There are essentially two types of studios. Custom shops, and street shops. Now street shops can have really talented artists, but the majority of street shops will focus on flash art (the stuff on the walls). Custom shops are typically smaller and will probably not have any flash on the wall (or a very small amount).

When looking for artists, you're going to also want to look for someone who has done something previously in the style you want. A lot of artists will excel at specific types of art, as well as being good in other styles.

Finally, make sure you're comfortable with the artist. Go in and talk to them. Most shops will give you a consultation, however they'll probably ask for a deposit, as the artist will be taking time to get to know you and what you want done.

I did a quick look, and you're probably going to want to go outside of Cookeville. It's not that the shops are bad, but I didn't see a lot of custom work from the ones I looked at. There are a couple in Nashville that caught my eye on Yelp, but like I said, only you will know exactly what you want.
