TV's Vinnie: Before anyone posts the "awful wedding photo tattoo", bear in mind that recently a REAL tattoo artist had seen this insult to all tattoo artists and offered to correct the hack's job into a more pleasant looking version, for free.

Bungles: It's basically the old story of "Two hairdressers on a desert island, one with a terrible haircut, one with a great hair cut. Who do you get your haircut by?".

/although look for food, shelter, and water first.


Just remember the rule of 3's for your priorities.  You can only survive:
- 3 minutes without air
- 3 hours without shelter
- 3 days without water
- 3 weeks without food
- 3 months without a haircut

Bungles: At a proper place, with a proper tattooist, that's a £500 tattoo. Photographic black and white shading is about as hard as tattooing comes. So the story is basically "Woman complains about $50 tattoo she paid £50 for".

He should be fined of course though, because she was underage.


That and he didn't have a license. Plus an experienced tattoo artist would charge far more, but the end results are more likely to look better. You get what you pay for.

PS don't you love how UK laws are written in a simple manner that can be understood by people with no legal training? That's because we're not intentionally supporting the lawyer class, unlike, ahem, some countries.

I have said it before.  I will say it again.

I have never seen a hot chick and thought "wow, she's hot.  SHE WOULD BE SO MUCH HOTTER WITH SOME BULLshiat WRITTEN ALL OVER HER."  If the girl in that photo likes her tat, well good for her.  farkING DOUBT IT.  Do you really think that girl looks at that shiat on her leg and thinks about all the good it has brought her, what meaning it has, how touching it is to recall the day she made that decision?

HELL NO.  Most days she probably never thinks about it, and when she does it is probably "wow, I kinda wish I hadn't done that".  Just like most hot chicks with stupid tats.

Fact is that tats with hot girls is a fad.  A stupid fad.  A stupid fad that is wearing out, because girls it ain't different and cool when EVERYONE is inked.  At that point it is no different than standing in line at the DMV for an ID card - everyone does it.  It is also going to make tons of money for laser removal establishments.  Oh wait.  It is ALREADY doing that.  Over half of all people that get a tat regret it within 2 weeks, and then a tat that might have cost you 100-300 bucks can cost over 3000 to get removed, and then you get some nice scarring.

Girls, if you want some piece of art tattooed on you, get that shiat on a t-shirt instead, because you will be tired of that t-shirt long before a tattoo wears off.

And dear god stop with the Marilyn Monroe worship.  Vapid blond (yeah right) whore that made not ONE watchable film that was killed for banging the president.  Yeah, that's worthy of adulation.  0_o

That was quite the rant.  Well done.

I can't say I entirely disagree.  I know this one girl who was shockingly beautiful, late teens.  I mean the kind of girl that everyone noticed when she walked into a room.  I watched over a year as the ink started on her upper arms, crept down to her fingertips, all down her body, nose piercings showed up (left right and center), lips, eyebrows, gauged ears, the farking works.  Now she is miserable and wonders why she can't get a job in the corporate world or working with children.

Think ahead kids.

I'd like to point out that women should not be chastised for choosing to do something that makes them appear less attractive to men - because that is not always their end goal. There are strong arguments against getting a tattoo (which is why I don't have one); but whether or not it makes me more attractive is a non-issue. I do agree that Monroe is not a good role model, but it's her body so whatever.

Agreed, she can do whatever she wants.  Again, a large portion of men are going to think it ridiculous as are a large portion of women.  Putting something out there publicly is going to get it criticized.  Some portion of that criticism will be from men and some of it will be based on aesthetics.  This isn't a gender thing though.  it's an attention whore thing.

it isn't about being more attractive to men.

it is about an already beautiful person marring that beauty with bullshiat.

simply put, there is nothing more beautiful, and I mean nothing, than the female form.  and there is little that is more stupid than marring that beauty with graffiti.

there is a reason that the Venus de Milo doesn't have a tramp stamp engraved above her ass.

It's a cover tat, there's only so much the artist can do at the end of the day and honestly the tattoo is pretty good considering what he had to work with. The shading has added some nice depth to the eyes, cheeks and mouth. Considering it looks like he had to also go in with some white ink (usually not a good sign from what I've seen) it turned out pretty good. I don't like the heavy black background but it looks like he did it to get rid of that abysmal red lettering.

As for the story itself it's a list of bad things that should tell anyone with two brain cells to rub together to bail.

1: 50 GBP for a fairly good sized tattoo
2: In house
3: Unlicensed
4: Guessing he didn't have a stencil to show her

No shiat.  50 pounds might get you a star on your ankle.  Nobody who can do even halfway decent work is going to cover the outer half of your upper arm for such a small amount of money.  That's like buying a $200 car and being shocked (SHOCKED!) that it's got some mechanical issues.  I think she should have been laughed out of court.  She got 50 pounds worth of tattoo.

omeganuepsilon: Misconduc: megarian: That chick is 17?

Yikes.

It must be a mistake, 27 would seem reasonable, maybe even 37.

Normally I agree with these assessments, especially for english people(they tend to get rode hard and put away wet), but she's not all that bad.  Skin is full and clear(aside from the tat). No wrinkles on her face at all, has youthful smoothness.

Freakish paleness around her lips though, probably fake bakes and doesn't understand that lipstick/chapstick only goes on the lips...

But late 20s or 30s?  You're on crack.

/not very attractive though
//youth =\= pretty features


tl;dr? He'd hit it.
 
2013-10-05 05:01:12 PM
She complains about all the laser removal sessions, but it seems like all she'd need is one or two of those to lighten it a bit, and then she could go to a better artist for recoloring and reworking of it from there for probably cheaper and less pain and ultimately getting the design she had in mind. Part of why it looks so awful is it's not much more than outlining that he did.

I mean, if Zombie Wife could be fixed, that's totally fixable.

Considering she thought paying only £50 for a large tattoo of a person was a great idea (and then was shocked that it turned out really bad), do you really think she does much of that "thinking things through and planning ahead" stuff?

I looked up the exchange rate for a lark; she paid only 80 US dollars for that.  I paid $60 for my small, very simple line-art tattoo.  The difference between me and her is that I went to a reputable artist for mine, and was very happy with how it turned out.  "You get what you pay for" applies triple to getting tattoos.

uttertosh: megarian: That chick is 17?

Yikes.

As someone who commuted to a jerb in Glasgow from a rented an apartment in Burnbank (locally known as The Jungle, I kid you not), I'd say she's kinda hot, and looks quite young for coming from that area. (yes, really)

I still think she should persue through the civil courts for all costs to cover up/remove that horrifying inkbortion


Oh she's definitely hot.

But she doesn't look 17.

She looks like a hot 27 year old.
