Posted:I've had a new tatto done it's a really special one for me it's not one of those pointless tats.
It symbolises me and my partner living together in harmony.
My question is have you got a tat and what was the reason for getting it done??

Posted:Those are really cool, c@ntus. I like the combination of tribals and the dragon eyes.

yay! I just got my second tattoo finished today! It would have been done yesterday, but the shop was closing. So, I went back today and got it taken care of. So painful! But, I'm really happy with it. I'll try to take a picture of it and post it up. It's the Kali Yantra from Nepal and is between my shoulder blades.

Oh god, I hurt........

Posted:mmm i love tattoos...
i got a butterfly sideways on, on my hipbone when i was young and naive, to represent chaos theory, but i've since been told that 'butterfly' in greek (?) is 'psyche' which is quite a nice thing to know...can anyone confirm that?
I also got a design i collaborated with a tattooist at the bottom of my spine, a celtic knot i designed surrounded by purple/black tribal stuff that the tattooist did freehand... never going to be another one like it

my mum hails from china, so i really want a chinese symbol somewhere but i'm extremely paranoid about getting someone who doesn't speak/write the language to do it, but i don't know how safe it is to go to china and get it done
...the paranoia came after my mum told me that posh spice's tat that was suppose to say 'woman' actually says 'ladies' as in "i'm just popping to the..." !

Posted:I just had a tattoo done last Wednesday. It's very personal to me.......

It's the words 'Brenhines Tylwyth Teg' ('Queen of Fairies' in Welsh) Above the writing is a star that I designed myself, the writing is also my own. I've always loved fairies since I was tiny, and when I lived in Wales I used to go hunting for them and draw them and stuff. I've always been called The Fairy Queen by people as I guess thats how they percieve me. So I'd been designing the tattoo for a year and finally it was finished, and there it is! On my back, for all to see! Branded the Queen of Fairies. Proud. I'll try and attatch a picture...

Tattoo's are great but I'd advise anyone who is getting one to have a picture of it on your wall for a good couple of months before you get it, just to check you never get sick of it! My words of wisdom for the day!

Posted:Dibs (hi sis first time I actually say hi )
Your tatoo is beautiful ! But the greek letters seem to not mean anything in greek. Do they have a special meaning for you ? would you mind sharing ?

Cantus, wicked tatoos you've got Bro
I have a tatoo , designed it , had it done and the guy actually screwed it partly Maybe when i have money and someone who knows how to design tatoos i'll try and find a way to make it better.

The tatoo parlor I went to was the most famous one in Paris and yet it did not prevent the guy from screwing... Of course it is not "obvious" at first sight, but if you look harder , it shows the lines are *far* from being perfect etc ... So everyone, please be perfectly sure of the guy who does it ... and also maybe chose the hour you have it done (like NOT when he is exhausted after the 10000eth costumer of the day ...)

Still love my tatoo, just hope I can love it even more some day...

The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.-- Ken Kesey

Cass, i think the writing on dibs' tattoo is welsh not greek. and she explains what it means in an earlier post on this thread.

Posted:I'm thinking about getting a tattoo eventually, one to remind me of my soulmate. Its just nice to have something that reminds you of them. Doesn't matter if its a necklace, their belt that you're wearing, or a tattoo on your foot... I want to get it with them in about 1.5 years. Partly to make sure we're sure about each other, and partly cause they turn 18 in 1.5 years SO! I wanted something small and symbolic. "Come what may" is one thought. Or maybe "To thy own self be true" Anybody have suggestions? I can't think of any pictures.

Posted:I'm getting my 1st tatoo next friday. ive wanted it for a while. it the symbol for my favorite band(Naked Aggression) but its not just a logo ive talked to the lead singere before and she told me it symbolizes confined energy that builds up and up until it explodes all over the place in a big mess its alot like life(mine anyway)its a circle with two arrows pointing out of the top and one of to the side on the bottom. ill try to post it when i get it done. ive also condered getting a mother duck with little baby ducks following her in a band around my upper arm with one green ugly duck with a spike coming out of the top of his head a cigar hanging out his bill a spiked dog collar he's sticking his middle feather up and hes got a tattoo on his left wing that says "lucky" along with tire marks on his ass and some webbed combat boots(ive really gotta draw this one up) i also want to get sober tatooed on either the back of my neck or on my wrist ive thought about getting it done in old english but i dont know. i want to get fire aswell i used to write off the idea cuz its kinda cliche but i deal with a lot of fire in my life, from my horoscope to performing to welding as a career id have to create my own design for sure.

Posted:hey, just keep getting it hennaed on.

at any given time i have henna on me somewhere that i do myself. its a heck of a lot easier to do on other people.

my hand once

sometimes i can get it to go really dark, but usually only when my design sucks
my feet in december (hey, try hennaing your own feet sometime and see how long you can bend like that and still be able to draw!)

Must start thinking of designs. I would like a little tiger (& I wouldn't mind a tattoo of one either)

Posted:Jexxy,
I don't know how that guy thinks tattooing on your spine would cause paralysis, but I've gotten two (or three depending on how you look at it) along my spine and still not paralyzed. I don't see how that could happen as the needles only penetrate the first couple of layers of skin. Okay, maybe if you had someone *really* stupid doing it, but I would hope you would shop around and find someone you feel safe with.
As far as the pain goes, I'm going to lie to you. It hurts like a bitch. You have less padding over your spine, which causes it to be one of the most painful areas to tattoo. So, it's up to you and remember you don't have to get it done all at once and can always have them do a little line or something so you can see if you can stand the pain. Hope that helped.

Posted:Cantus, Dibs, sorry, i had not understood that you meant you had written the welsh text in greek letters. Why greek letters though ?

Pere, good job really

Kinudin, you're right, one has to think about the spot and how it will look in, say 50 years from now... which is why I somehow do not recommend boobs ... and why I chose my lower back.

Kali's so right : spine = pain ... but I found that after a short while I created my own endorphine and no longer felt pain ... (mine small and only took a bit more than an hour so taht might be why as well.

Posted:I don't think the thought of how a tatts gonna look when you're old should affect things. So what if it goes wrinkly? Tis a beautiful part of a beautiful form. If u get the right tatt, u should always be happy with it. And after all, if it wasn't there, your skin would be just as wrinkly, just not as colorful.

Posted:the way it looks when you get older is somthing you have to take in to account IF you think that far ahead, a tat is a buetiful addition to your apperance, if really wanted the tat in the first place i wont matter what it looks like when aged with rest of your body, They become part of you and if thats not realised then I can see how people would be unhappy when gravity takes over. woooh That was a ramble n a half Sorry every one who bothered to read it,
