A tribal tattoo says: "I want to express my personality but I have zero creativity or imagination." Which I guess counts as a personality trait.

At first I was digging the article. Seemed informative and well written.....until he got to the part about Kat Von D being worth $400 bucks on hour. Kat Von D is the Danica Patrick of the tattoo world, she's not a bad overall artist, at least her portraits and black and grey stuff are pretty good, but her tattoos are not the reason she's famous. It's all about look and photo shoots for her and for the Miami Ink guys for that matter. I've been to tattoo conventions where those guys show up and spend time selling autographs and t-shirts instead of tattooing.

The second point I disagree with is that flat rate tattoos are bad. This is pretty much the standard for small tattoos. It assures the artist covers their set up fee which is usually $50 bucks minimum. If your tattoo is going to take less than an hour you're going to get a flat rate. It doesn't mean they're trying to rip you off. It means if the artist charges $100 bucks an hour and your tattoo is going to take 15 minutes, it's not worth their time or effort to try and divide that up. He probably gets this impression since he has large tattoos where you pay by the hour which means you usually come out better.

My god he recommends neosporin? There are tons of aftercare products that are made specifically for tattoos. Use tattoo goo or even better get the tattoo foam.

there are some places that are safer than others if you are going to gain/lose a bunch of weight. Chest, tops of feet, and arms are usually pretty safe (below the elbow on the arms). Belly, ribs, or thigh now so much

I was in the elevator with a guy who had Chinese tattoo'd on his forearm. I thought I recognized the character for beef "yo"...nudged my Chinese friend, who can read Chinese, to confirm. She smiled, and when the guy got out of the elevator she said "Yeah, it says Beef Chow Ho Fan". So, "Beef with fat rice noodles".

That guy was either a total dumbass, or a hipster totally committed to irony. Maybe both.

acaciaavenue: Step 2: Tell him your idea, let him draw it up.


That's harder than you think! I live in a city (philly) and I had to go to 6 different places before I found an actual artist. I had an idea and every place I went to had no idea what to do. One guy told me to back a week later, and then showed me a blown up xerox of a reference photo. I then drew something out in illustrator and how it would fit on my body, and some other guy said he couldn't work with that. He needed more info, and told me to look in the book for something similar. I eventually found an awesome, actual artist out towards the suburbs. But it's really pathetic that even in a city, no tattoo artist can do anything besides trace the crap on the wall (and most customers are ok with that).

//I've got about 60% of my body covered and work as a professional in a very conservative job.
///in before the tattoos are trashy crowd


i had pretty much the same feelings about it as you did....

kat von D...TERRIBLE and her $400 an hr rate is ALL hype. if you had an entire day free i could name off THOUSANDS of artists in the 100-200 an hr range who would make her look embarrassingly bad. same goes for assgrabbers like ami james or chris nunez. the 'big name' artists he mentions in the article actually get their notoriety from tattoo magazines and travelling conventions. these guys usually run in the $150-200 an hr range

also, NEVER listen to aftercare instructions UNLESS they're given to you BY YOUR ARTIST. they should have a system already configured, figured out and tested over and over again. they know what works and why you should use what and what you should avoid.
personally i think neosporin is shiat for healing tattoos because you are statistically more likely to have an allergic reaction to it than say A&D ointment.

but i'm going to disagree with you about hourly vs flat rate. basically, that flat rate guy, is estimating how long that tattoo is going to take to do. nevermind the hundred little variables he has no control over that may need more time or attention. if he says 200 bucks, he's thinking its going to take 2 hrs to do. now what happens if you happen to have tough leathery skin, and now you're 3 1/2 hrs in and your tattoo isn't finished yet. oh snap, tattoo dude screwed up. guess what now? he's gonna rush, cut corners and do whatever to get you outta the chair and cut his losses. guess who loses? YOU.

hourly places have shop minimums. mine goes a little like, $50 min for all tattoos that are 30 mins or less. 30-45 mins but less than an hour...60/80 bucks. hourly at 100

I don't really understand the hate for flash. Just because someone else had the idea doesn't make it any less important, or meaningful, or attractive. Is your favorite song/book/movie/etc less meaningful to you because someone else had the idea first?
Yeah, I have some custom work and some flash, some bad tattoos and some good ones, but each of them is a visceraI reminder of where I was (and who I was) at the time. I picked out a Tattoo Peter design off the wall a few weeks ago precisely because it was an historical Tattoo Peter design and I was in his shop getting tattooed by Bill Loika. It's a great tattoo and an awesome souvenir of an unforgettable week in Amsterdam.

I am at work so i cant upload my only piece, but here goes CSB:
brother and cousin died in a shiatty car wreck about 9 months ago. found out shortly after that he had put a deposit down at Faith Tattoo in golden for the solid profile of an ironworker connecting steel. a few months after all settled and everyones brains started working, my cousin [who lost his younger brother as well in the wreck] and my dad went to the same guy to get their memorial pieces done on their backs. none of us have ever had a tattoo.

i got the profile he was going to get standing center spine on two i-beams branching out from on top of a column across my shoulders in a very POW style all black silohuette with an interlocked C and C where the ibeams meet standing for cole and casey. the ibeams fade from solid black at the ends and the two I's represent Integrity Iron, the company I now co-run with my cousin. Took like.. 5 tries to get the stencil on perfectly symmetrical on my back.

I never want to have another good reason to get a tattoo again. the piece turned out amazing and i put three months of thought in to it.
if you go to the website you can see my cousins back piece under Matts page, but their webpage is terrible, and i am as anti religious as they come.

wish i had a pic in the office to post, maybe when i get home.
dont get solid black up a solid half or more of your spine.

Oh, and I don't think I need to say this, but I will anyway: You want brand new needles. Not "cleaned" needles, not "sterilized" needles... NEW. Never been used before. Ever. If they're not brand new needles, run - don't walk - to the health department and report that shop.

Why? Why not sterilize them in an autoclave? Is it because they get dull? It can't be a cleanliness issue. When they're "new" don't they have to be sterilized?

jigger: Oh, and I don't think I need to say this, but I will anyway: You want brand new needles. Not "cleaned" needles, not "sterilized" needles... NEW. Never been used before. Ever. If they're not brand new needles, run - don't walk - to the health department and report that shop.

Why? Why not sterilize them in an autoclave? Is it because they get dull? It can't be a cleanliness issue. When they're "new" don't they have to be sterilized?


Yes, dullness is a reason you wouldn't want to re-use, aside from disease/pathogens.
It is also a reason not to re-use medical needles and piercing needles. Skin dulls up the points, and the more you use it, the more it tears through skin vs slicing.

This article was kind of meh. Some good points, some whatever stuff in there.

needles will get surprisingly dull during the tattoo process. a dull needle puts ink in like shiat. takes longer, and looks patchy healed out. plus re-using needles is farking disgusting and definitely is a sign to RUN, not walk the hell outta that shop

I always have that conversation when in groups of the tatted and pierced set.

"Everyone here who has a tatt or hole in their body somewhere, raise your hand."

/ Everyone but me raises their hand.

"So now who's unique and special?"


you're making the assumption that people do it to feel unique and/or special. Why can't it be that they just enjoy the art, enjoy the process, or a whole slew of reasons people modify their bodies? It seems like the one in the conversation most focused on being unique and special is you when they seem to be just doing what they want. If you're so focused on not being modified to feel unique how is that any better than the person who feels they have to change their body to fit in? You're still letting the actions of others dictate what you do with your body.

H31N0US: dj245: My wife was born in Japan and Japanese is her first language. Chinese and Japanese share some (most?) of the same characters, so she can know what many Chinese character tattoos mean too.

Number of times I've asked her what a kanji tattoo means - lots.
Number of times that it made sense or otherwise meant what the person was intending it to mean - 0

I was in the elevator with a guy who had Chinese tattoo'd on his forearm. I thought I recognized the character for beef "yo"...nudged my Chinese friend, who can read Chinese, to confirm. She smiled, and when the guy got out of the elevator she said "Yeah, it says Beef Chow Ho Fan". So, "Beef with fat rice noodles".

That guy was either a total dumbass, or a hipster totally committed to irony. Maybe both.

so sorry again, but no. your tattoo isn't just suffering from age or being 'dry' if you take particular notice of calvin's head/face and the top hand on hobbes...see how those lines are so thick and wobbly that you can't really make anything out? thats called blow-out. thats what happens when the 'artist' goes too deep into the skin and actually hits the fat layer. this cause the ink to bleed or blow out. a good tattoo apprentice will have learned how to avoid blow out before they start tattooing paying customers. the tattoo was done too small to begin with, which is why you're really having compounded issues with the blow out and just the natural way lines can 'spread out' over time just dude to your skin regrowing. doing the tattoo larger would've allowed 'more room to breathe' so the design could handle that effect and still look good. again, all shiat a tattoo artist is supposed to learn BEFORE making permanent marks on people.

so in short, in my professional opinion, you got HOSED
also in my professional opinion, get it covered up and have it re-tattooed somewhere else on your body and have it 'done right'

A good start would be spending more than 10 minutes deciding what to get inked permanently on your body. I've lost count of the number of girls I've seen with the same damn cookie cutter butterfly or star on them somewhere. At least the nearly ubiquitous tramp stamp seems to be fading in popularity lately.

There *are* some cool tats out there, but they are few and far between. At least 90% of what I see is tacky, trashy, passé stuff. Tattoos have gone from an expression of individuality and rebellion to trendy fashion accessory that everyone just has to have because all their friends have them too. Seems like those of us without any ink are the rebellious ones these days.
 
2012-06-21 05:54:41 PM  
One of these days I am going to get Japanese kanji on one arm that says "Refrigerator" and a tattoo of a Refrigerator on the other. I'll have the kanji exposed for all to see, and when someone who understands what it says asks "Do you know what that really means?" I'll roll up my sleeve and show them the fridge tat and say "Damn straight I do!"

Because it is not their art, it is the tattoo guy's art. It is akin to saying "I bought the new Stones album, so therefore I am a musician." There is only *one* reason why people modify their bodies with commercial tattoos and piercings, and that is to set themselves apart from everyone else.

Actually, people that spend a lot of time getting specific tattoos usually consider themselves art collectors. I'm not sure what a commercial tattoo is. What about the rape survivor who gets herself pierced because it makes her feel more in control of her body (similar to black fraternities that do banding rituals as way of claiming their own bodies instead of what slave owners but them through)? Or a genital piercing that is done for increased sexual pleasure? I have a large gauge septum piercing that people rarely see because I keep a plug in it. For me it marked a major milestone in my life. I don't think it makes me feel unique, hundreds of thousands of humans have done the same thing but it has a deeply personal meaning for me. There are lots of stories similar to mine if you had an open mind instead of judging the actions of others based on preconceived notions.

Well, I am unique and special. But that is a function of what I do, rather than how I decorate myself. People that put that much time and energy into their appearance have 0 credibility when they say they don't care what other people think.

Wow, so you're saying people who make a concentrated effort to change their bodies never do it for personal reasons? It always had to be a function of what other think of them? I think that says more about your worldview than it does about the behavior of other people.


/body modification has been around since recorded history, it's as much a fad as human civilization


And if people were doing it for religious or cultural reasons, that might be relevant. As it is...

Last time I looked people into body modifications had a pretty distinct subculture. Also if you look at indigenous tribes, not all body modification is done for religious reasons. In Borneo, the children of certain tribes will tattoo one another just for the enjoyment of it. Much like doodling. The reasons behind something is irrelevant in determining whether or not it's a fad since a fad means it spikes in popularity then stops. Just because in your world you didn't see tattoos a few years ago doesn't mean hundreds of thousands of humans around the globe weren't doing it. The mere fact that since ancient Mesopotamia people have been recorded as modifying themselves shows it isn't a fad. That would be like saying since Dub step is a popular form of music right now it must be a fad, so music must be a fad. I would venture to say you've only met a sliver of the body modification community in your life, just because you see the people on the t.v. have tattoos doesn't mean that before celebrities got them no one else was doing this stuff.

Not all Japanese words are written with kanji and it would be impossible to write 'your blog sucks' completely in kanji as there is no kanji for blog AFAIK. Blog is a borrowed word so it is written in katakana as ブログ.

Well, if I remember my one semester of Japanese from ten years ago, some words are properly done in only one script. Loan words are done in katakana. So a sentence like, "Go down to the shop and get me some ice cream," would be written in hiragana except for "ice cream." And I think most of it would be in Kanji anyhow.

WhippingBoy: Noticeably F.A.T.: Sometimes I almost wish that I didn't have any ink. They guys who proudly announce that they are the real rebels because they don't have tattoos/piercings seem to have so damn much fun doing so. But, then I remember that my tats have nothing to do with being rebellious and that I don't really care what anyone thinks about them. and go on about my life.

One thing I've noticed about people with tattoos... they'll spend an inordinate amount of effort trying to convince everyone that they "don't care what anyone thinks about them". If you really didn't care, you wouldn't ever mention them.


Riiiiiiight.

Just like the pansies who don't have tattoos wouldn't spend a whole bunch of time trying to convince everyone that THEY are really the cool peeps cause they don't have any ink... In a tattoo thread even.

Hiragana is not the same thing as kanji. FWIW , a lot of those kanji tats may be of chinese origin, so when read as japanese kanji, they often get a slightly more humorous meaning then originally intended. Vice versa of course. Japanese use the same kanji characters as the chinese but altered many of the character's meanings long ago in an effort to discourage accurate information from reaching mainland China.

Kanji in itself is a lot of fun. Went through hell trying to come up with the proper combination of characters when naming my older daughter as certain combinations bring wealth, while others are bad luck.

My wife will translate an interesting kanji tator sign once in a while trying to maintain a straight face. She usually follows up her translation with " I can't be sure though as I'm not sure what the artist (of different nationality) intended the kanji to be read".

Markoff_Cheney: I am at work so i cant upload my only piece, but here goes CSB:
brother and cousin died in a shiatty car wreck about 9 months ago. found out shortly after that he had put a deposit down at Faith Tattoo in golden for the solid profile of an ironworker connecting steel. a few months after all settled and everyones brains started working, my cousin [who lost his younger brother as well in the wreck] and my dad went to the same guy to get their memorial pieces done on their backs. none of us have ever had a tattoo.

i got the profile he was going to get standing center spine on two i-beams branching out from on top of a column across my shoulders in a very POW style all black silohuette with an interlocked C and C where the ibeams meet standing for cole and casey. the ibeams fade from solid black at the ends and the two I's represent Integrity Iron, the company I now co-run with my cousin. Took like.. 5 tries to get the stencil on perfectly symmetrical on my back.

I never want to have another good reason to get a tattoo again. the piece turned out amazing and i put three months of thought in to it.
if you go to the website you can see my cousins back piece under Matts page, but their webpage is terrible, and i am as anti religious as they come.

wish i had a pic in the office to post, maybe when i get home.
dont get solid black up a good chunk of yer spine.

home from work, sorry for the bad photo, it was right after i got it. i only had to get a 20 minute touch up a month later. its on my back and i dont brag about it or show it to everyone, but people who knew him all thought it was a fitting gesture? i guess?

No, actually... Someone who has no interest in getting a tattoo is not going to understand why someone else would want to art their bodies all up.

Fish in a Barrel: buttery_shame_cave: That's what I thought... But あなたのブログは吸う appears to be a mix of all three.

that's probably the joke, let's be honest. someone who gets japanese text on a tattoo would do something that dumb.

Well, if I remember my one semester of Japanese from ten years ago, some words are properly done in only one script. Loan words are done in katakana. So a sentence like, "Go down to the shop and get me some ice cream," would be written in hiragana except for "ice cream." And I think most of it would be in Kanji anyhow.


Kanji is the most traditional and has an almost infinite amount of characters that have multiple meanings depending on syntax, location, and in combination with other characters and are often studied over a lifetime. Nearly impossible to learn even for a native speaker and is usually used for legal or formal settings. Often it is accompanied with a hiragana translation.

Hiragana is the current "alphabet" used in Japan and most commonly used in informal, or pop culture settings. It consists of 52 base characters (each with a unique pronounciation), but that number increases as one combines characters to create other letter sounds. It is the easiest to learn over the shortest amout of time. Learn the correct pronounciation of each sound while learning Japanese language, you will end up sounding a lot easier on the ears when you give it a try with a native speaker.

Katakana is very similar to hiragana as a modern alphabet though it is used when translating foreign, technical, animals, and Western concepts and words.

It is not uncommon to find a combination of all three in a sentence although you'll find kanji almost exclusively on legal documents

Check your sarcasm meter whle reading the "velvet Elvis" sentence. If it failed to flicker, I understand why you seem upset about my reiterating your point.

Yeah, I make fun of folks with bad tats. I don't have a tattoo and don't feel the need to ever get one, but i can respect a good one. Let's just skip the melodrama of "you don't understand, square!" since tattoos have become common enough they really aren't an act of defiance.

Fano: Need Help Soonish: People with Tats always regard them as art... People without them will never get it.

So someone who hasn't yet gotten his first tattoo doesn't "get it" until he gets one, and then mysteriously begins to view them as art? Sounds like a shaky foundation for getting one (or even trying to convince himself it was a good idea after the fact).

Yeah, I make fun of folks with bad tats. I don't have a tattoo and don't feel the need to ever get one, but i can respect a good one. Let's just skip the melodrama of "you don't understand, square!" since tattoos have become common enough they really aren't an act of defiance.


Not really the point I was trying to make.

Besides, if you get a tattoo because you think it's an act of defiance, or "cool"... Well, that's just lame sauce.

Jument: ModernPrimitive01: thatboyoverthere: I have to say that is all good advice. Though if I want one I'm not getting one anytime soon. I need to lose weight and I don't want to see what happens to a tattoo when a person loses weight.

there are some places that are safer than others if you are going to gain/lose a bunch of weight. Chest, tops of feet, and arms are usually pretty safe (below the elbow on the arms). Belly, ribs, or thigh now so much

/depends on your body type, I'm making generalizations

... but nothing is safe from age. :)


I have a friend that was an ultra-hottie back in the day. She's still hot, I think, but she def. weighs ~75 lbs. more at 40 than she did at 19.
And I'm talking wet t-shirt winner, etc,
I seriously asked her why she didn't hit the Playboy/tanning model circuit in her day.
So, after 2 kids and breast reduction surgery (back pains and that constant danger of toppling forward) she's like the rest of us. No free rides on traffic tickets, etc.
During her bar girl days, she had her name tattooed along the string bikini line. Belinda.
After childbirth- her words.
'You know how we used to copy the Sunday comics with silly putty, and stretch Snoopy's head into funky shapes? Well, that's what my tattoo looks like now. Instead of saying Belinda, it says B--E--L--I--N--D--A.'
Completing the joke physically with her mimicking the pull of a Stretch Armstrong doll.
Girl is funny...

Took me a double-take to see what they was supposed to be. Really helped that I don't think you have a star on the end of your peener.

I don't care what you think. I got it for my own personal reasons.


A good artist would have made sure that more of the big hand is visible, so it is immediately obvious it is a finger and not a weener, because let's be honest: It looks like a child's hand jerking a weener.

If you are ever getting another tattoo, go to someone with better skills and take more time to think about the design.

It helps that he's a retired SEAL, and has done all the things his ink says he's done. He didn't just make up a random design.

As shaky as some of this guys advice is, I wish that I had advice on what to expect from the actual tattooing process, rather than on the tattoos themselves when I got my first one done. I'm happy with the tattoo and I didn't pay out the nose for it, but in retrospect I'm side-eyeing my artist pretty hard.

Guy had his two kids in the shop, their ages about 10, 11ish. Maybe a little younger. Every fifteen minutes he'd leave to yell at them to sit down and be quiet, stuff like that. I tensed up a couple times (nerves, mostly - my first tattoo and all) and he was getting pretty angry at me, which didn't help the nerves. He didn't even tell me about touchup work later - I had to hear about it a few months later. I will admit that if I did a bit more research I probably would have realized something was up, though.

/he really liked my design though
//also liked my pale skin. Tattoo artists love the canvas shut-ins give them, I suppose.

Just got my fourth piece. Big mistake. The artist was great. And i love the look but I chose to have it on my foot. Even after numerous warnings. The pain was intense ( I had two natural childbirths so thought I understood pain). Then I didn't give enough healing time and went back to work too soon. Ended up with a gorgeously swollen and infected foot.

So, in a year when I am all healed I will go for touch up work. When I know I will be able to have a few weeks off.

i dont have any tattoos. never could come up with something i would want put on me permanently. Only thing i ever considered was a memorial to my mom who died when i was little. I mentioned the idea to my dad one day and he adamantly said mom would've been horrified. So now my memorial tat for mom is not having any tats. i dont know.. like most things tats cover the whole gamut.. theres horrible ones and work of art ones. i personally dont find them particularly sexy on chicks, but then that really depends on the tattoo. i see a lot of folks around with gang type tattoos and i cant help but think what in the world are they thinking. mostly i think they are a mistake.. but then i see ones like the guy up above who posted the two upper arms.. those are some pretty cool looking tattoos, very original and i like the style. so whatever to each their own.

I'm confused. If I don't mention them how am I making a big deal about them. Same with my other friends wit tats. If they aren't visible they only mention them when asked if they have any. It really isn't a topic of conversation. Except when researching for a new one.

The guy left out two fairly important ones:

- If possible, get your work done in your home town, so you can show back up and complain in person if they do something wrong. Generally, they'll offer to help fix whatever your beef is if it's their work to begin with, another guy in another city will charge you quite a lot to do likewise.

- Don't use proprietary logos, images, etc without consent. It's not illegal, but it's a douchebag thing to do, frankly. I'm sure this was left out because of his "I'm painting my arm with someone else's copyrighted cartoon imagery" thing.

Also, there's absolutely nothing wrong with society expecting you to cover or remove your ornamentation in specialized or formal occasions, don't forget that tattoos are analogous to earrings, flip-flops, etc-- there are times when they're legitimately not appropriate. Being able to cover or conceal them is a matter of basic consideration for other people, not society being "judgmental". If you intentionally limit yourself to non-formal social situations with a permanent fixture it's not up to everyone else to bend to what you think fashion should be and I suggest you remove the stick from your ass and learn to apply some foundation to your neck tattoo before going to prom or whatever the fark. Well, I guess not prom given the Ghost in the Shell obsession, but you know what I mean.

Any Pie Left: Every tattoo shop I've ever seen has the absolute worst, ugliest, most half-assed signage on the front window or front of the store, and I wonder, if they can't do THAT so it looks good, why would I pay them to work on my skin with permanent ink?


There's actually a fairly logical set of reasons for this:

Firstly, like with many businesses it says something good about your tattoo parlor if you've been in business for a long time. So the sign on the front of the store will be the oldest flash they've got if the parlor was there in the '60s or earlier and something in a "retro" style if it isn't. American tattooing until very recently was a fairly closed profession with some very strong traditions and what was essentially an old-style guild structure.

Secondly, most tattoo guys are all "I'm an artist, I'm not going to pay someone else to paint my sign". Acrylic paint on a five foot square scale is kind of a different deal than injection dyes in living flesh. So, yeah, there's an element of overconfidence there.

In 20 years, there will be an injectable ink-removing technique so all tattoos are painlessly removable. The fashion will then be to get new ink and change it out several times a year.

It already exists, and no, it's not painless and will never be painless. You have to inject any chemical remover into the same area as the tattoo, or in other words you have to re-tattoo the area with dye remover. So it hurts as much as the original tattooing, at minimum. Though you can also artificially fade certain colors to almost-nothing using the same kind of heating laser that people use to permanently remove body hair, that doesn't hurt anymore than a mild sunburn (family member tested the equipment on me at one point, so that's first-hand for you).

There are some fairly substantial limitations on the mobility of dyes and anything chemically capable of removing a dye from flesh. Anything you could inject once that could then scrub metallic dye from the upper layers of your skin would pretty much guaranteed kill you outright.

Personally, I never wanted a tattoo. Couldn't think of anything (either deep or banal or cool or mundane) to want there on my skin forever.

However, always admired the technique and patience needed to do a great tattoo. I've seen the work of some very talented people on a few of those and there is some really interesting designs on some people's tattoos. A friend of mine on my D&D group has a really cool stained glass looking mosaic on an arm.

Some people attach deep emotional meaning to their tattoos, and that's something that I respect. Some other do it for mere fashion reasons, and that's OK too... it's your tattoo (or lack of it), so go on and be happy...

You probably wouldn't like mine. They don't have much of a story, it's just are that I happen to think is awesome. I suppose they help tell the story of my tastes, but that's it.


Well, you shouldn't be too worried about my opinions anyways hon... Im just a random internet stranger ;)

dj245: My wife was born in Japan and Japanese is her first language. Chinese and Japanese share some (most?) of the same characters, so she can know what many Chinese character tattoos mean too.

Number of times I've asked her what a kanji tattoo means - lots.
Number of times that it made sense or otherwise meant what the person was intending it to mean - 0


Or, maybe the languages just aren't as close as she thinks. My SO says they are like Latin and Spanish. You can sometimes pick up the meaning, with a lot of context that tattoos just don't have. Forget any idiom and subtlety.

Anyway, one time I visited Japan there were kids all over with shirts that said stuff like "Woob!" or "zalkooo". Total nonsense. I think that's what some of these tattoos in chinese/kanji are, just look at the pretty foreign writing.

Other countries do not suddenly come up with special, differently-shaped letters to match those of the English language alphabet. There is no "Japanese letter for M" or "Celtic letter Y". So your "That's my baby's initials in Japanese" is... well, it's probably not what you think you paid for.

There are no pictures of my tattoo that still exist(thanks to a virus that forced my to reformat my computer), but I went to one of the best in the area, got the schtick about permanency, and showed him the work that had been done already on my back. He noticed what had been done wrong and said he could fix it, despite the previous artist having had to re-work it 3-4 times because he didn't know what he was doing. I also told my new artist what I wanted, and paid the deposit, as it was going to be a unique piece of art adorning my back for the rest of my life. After 3 weeks of trial and error on his part, I pointed him towards the area of art history I was referring to when I described what I wanted. 2 more weeks and we were all set to go. 13 hours later(broken up because I am not a glutton for punishment) and we had exactly what I wanted.
It is now years later and I wouldn't change a thing. A simple t-shirt covers my main back piece, I have a nice job, and very few people besides friends know I have any tattoos at all. It is very personal to me, and I don't like to show it off, because of 2 reasons: firstly, people do make rash decisions about others without all the data. Second, it is mine, not yours, so why do you think I care about what you think about what I have modified my body into. I have a very short creed I try to live by. I work my ass off to make things easier for others. Judge me by my deeds, not by what you see on my body.

Well, he didn't tell you what it actually is or post a pic of it, (because the only one was lost on his computer due to a virus and there was only enough ink for that photograph apparently), but it is very important not to judge him and if you saw it you wouldn't understand it anyway.

Yes, please post pictures of horrible tattoos

I am amazed that with your name, that was the reaction that your comment brought. I am also amazed when skinink gets bites with his wonderful rants in most tattoo threads.

For such a libertarian place, many Farkers sure have problems with what others do to their skin.


I don't think it is that they (we?) have a problem with them. We just reserve the right to opine about the subject, as that is (you know) the goal of a forum. I think a tattoo isn't a bad thing though I think it is trashy on a female and, in my experience, is usually worn by women willing to sleep with me which probably isn't a good thing.

Even if you're being sarcastic, you're right that this thread is a perfect example of the sentiment of that sign. If you read through this entire thread you won't find any posts from a tattooed person belittling, insulting, or otherwise disparaging non-tattooed people for not having tattoos. Unfortunately, the reverse is not true.

One piece of advice for the ladies: don't get belly tattoos. My sister had a giant orchid tatted on her belly. Looked good when she was 21. Then she got fat and had 3 kids. Between the stretch marks and the C-section scars it was pretty much trashed and she had it lasered off. In fact, just don't get a tattoo.

So your "That's my baby's initials in Japanese" is... well, it's probably not what you think you paid for.


Actually, some languages do. Mandarin Chinese, for example, has several characters that were created to allow foreign sounds to be written down. They are mostly used to write the names of people and places that could otherwise not be written without changing the pronunciation. I have the entire table in my chinese-english dictionary.

Found this out when I had to get my name seal in Taiwan to stamp legal paperwork.

Almost every single woman there had some sort of pathetic little ankle tattoo at the very least; or some cheesy "deep thought" tattooed on their back.
It was tragically conformist.


I work at a university and when I see women walking down the sidewalk with a tat of a line or two of text my first thought is always "Oh, look, yet another molestation victim who moved up from cutting herself. Oh, it's in French. Isn't she the unappreciated genius."

That's true, most people don't. Judging by the quality of what most of you have decided to put on your bodies in this thread and what I see on the streets, this is a very obvious statement.

I have BFA from Pratt Institute, I know good design, shading. composition and drawing when I see it. In fact I graduated with honors, funny, that almost kind of means I have an informed opinion on the subject of art considering it's one of the best art schools anywhere.

Enough about me, what makes you so special, because you pulled the trigger on something that is of low quality done by someone with little skill and your stuck with it?

Yes, THAT makes you an authority, making a badly informed decision that you can't do over. Congrats!

It mattered to me. Them giving their credentials lets me know that I can safely ignore just about anything they have to say about whether or not a given piece of art is "good". In the real world, "good" art is whatever you happen to like. In art school, "good" art involves pretension, a smattering of crippling self-doubt, the smug words of a tenured professor, and tens of thousands of dollars of sudent loans.

Teufelaffe: Wulfman: Teufelaffe: Reminds me of a sign at my (formerly) local tattoo joint, in between the "Tipping is not a city in China" and the "We charge double for tribal." signs, that read: "The difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people don't care if you're tattooed or not."


Clearly. I mean, how is this better demonstrated than through the comments here today?

Even if you're being sarcastic, you're right that this thread is a perfect example of the sentiment of that sign. If you read through this entire thread you won't find any posts from a tattooed person belittling, insulting, or otherwise disparaging non-tattooed people for not having tattoos. Unfortunately, the reverse is not true.


You obviously haven't read the thread. at least one moran said that people without tattoos are pansies.

Teufelaffe: Noticeably F.A.T.: EbolaNYC: Which means that's as good as it gets, with the hat and sunglasses, badass indeed.

I wasn't implying that I was a badass, that was a comment on you trotting out your credentials as if they matter to anyone in the thread other than you.

It mattered to me. Them giving their credentials lets me know that I can safely ignore just about anything they have to say about whether or not a given piece of art is "good". In the real world, "good" art is whatever you happen to like. In art school, "good" art involves pretension, a smattering of crippling self-doubt, the smug words of a tenured professor, and tens of thousands of dollars of sudent loans.


In the real world art you like is what you buy, what you buy doesn't mean it's good or well done.

Squiggly, fuzzy lines, blotching shading, all mean your tattoo sucks. I can even tolerate a bad design as long as the craftsmanship is there.

Save the extra cash and pay someone with talent, it's worth it. People like me won't feel so bad for you when you walk by.

I'll keep that in mind the next time I find myself caring if people like you feel bad for me.

While he's incorrect about there being no people with tattoos making fun of people without, I'd say the ratio is pretty heavily skewed towards people without ink being intolerant of people with ink.

I don't have any tattoos. I have a sketch that I would like to get done, but I have bad skin and would rather not throw my money away by getting it done and ruining it the next day.

Frankly, if you get a tattoo, it should be something personally relevant. Something you won't be embarrassed to still have when you're 80. If you pick something out of a book, you deserve what you get. Such as:

私はユニークです

お尻の帽子

Welcome to Fark.

I never said that. Of course they do! What you're unaware of is that there are many like me, who dig tattoos, have friends and family with tattoos who just make fun of people with shiatty tattoos.

So your claim that it's just because I don't like people with ink is just false.

I feel terrible that you have shiatty tattoos, and the fact of the matter is I suffer because of it. They even have websites dedicated to them: Link

You're basing the quality of my ink on... what, exactly?

EbolaNYC: and the fact of the matter is I suffer because of it.


My ink has zero affect on your life. And suffering comes from you and you alone.

Your motorcycle. That makes me cry too.

Ah, I think I've identified the problem. You're kind of a pompous idiot, and that makes you sad. You can't see that, so you assume that whatever you're looking at is making you sad.

To be fair, I think LOTS of people are pansies... Frat boys, over indulged rich house wives, most children, and anyone who spends less than 10 hours outside a week... It's a pretty long list :P

Wait... is this week to week, or averaged over the month/year?

Ill take an average... I understand that a lot of people actually have to work indoors and stuff :P

One of the reasons I escaped office work for what I do now was the constant being inside... Drove me BONKERS!

Well, it's right about 100 out there at the moment, and I have stuff to do indoors, so fark outside this week. Planning a ride for the first week of July though, so for about eight days straight I'll be outside more than in.
