oops... I meant to say that the dude in the bar was talking about the joy division tattoo... I guess I didn't make that very clear... I was just typing randomly.

After...


Before...



Next... I swear to god it isn't crooked and wierd like this... it's just hard to photograph your own arm.  (I know, it needs some touch ups.. it's only a few months old.. I'll be going back for them soon)


Some dude from one of the local tattoo shops saw this the other day while I was at work (I'm a bartender) and pulled me aside saying, "I was about to try to sell you into coming into the shop for some work, but I can clearly see that you don't need a new shop... that's F**ing beautiful."  That's the first time anyone has ever said anything to me about it... I was blushing.  Then about an hour later another dude from the one of the shops (there are quite a few near my town) came in and did the same thing.  I felt really proud and can't wait to go back in and tell my artist about all the notoriety she is building around my town without even living here!!....  Cheesy



I also gots stocking seams, some horrible crimson ghost tattoo, and a black heart on my stomach/hip area...  Going in to work on a cover up of the misfits one and to begin a sleeve next month!  eeeek!



-Sorry the photos are so big

here's my latest edition. i got it on monday and this was taken the next day i think. sorry about the blurryness. i had no idea how hard it would be to take a picture of my arm.

i got him done at nathan's anthems in redding california, by vanessa

without the flash

with the flash. the colors are more like this.

OKay, Am I really going to be the first person to say that this looks goddamn amazing!?  I have no idea why it looks familiar to me, I think it just appeals to me very much and I am confusing that with deja-vu style familiarity.  Where on your arm is this?
Again, I can't believe there have been any other comments since this without geeking out over it's beauty, like I am.
Fantastic.
Is he sitting indian-style or kneeling?  It's hard to tell from this photo.

Thank you!  I have a new one coming up in a few days, I'll post a picture soon!
As for the Sam Brown goodies, this is what I will be having placed in the middle:

awwww, thanks for noticing little ole me!  I thought maybe no one saw any of my ink, or secretly-silently hated them, I didn't get many comments!

Do you plan on adding colors to your Explodingdog pieces?

Nope.
Well when i get the middle part done, I may allow them to keep thier colored tee shirts, I think it will make them seem less jumbled, since they are standing SO close to one another.  I actually only have that one tattoo with any color thus far... dunno why.

(this is a cover-up, I didn't try to hide that fact.. I wanted it big and chunky with crisp clean lines)

If ya dont mind, what was covered up?

And yer seams are amazing,  Its a great idea since I cant find fishnets with them anywhere...

It is a cover-up of a small sailor blue heart I got a long time ago with someone I was dating.  We are still good friends, but to be honest, I didn't even like the actual work that much when I got it done.  I wanted another heart so that I could at least stay with the original idea and remember the places I have been and the people that have been a part of my life etc etc...  I would never turn my back on the mistakes that I have made, they, along with my sucesses, have made me the person I am today...and I am pretty okay with that person Smiley

I got my grey from sallys beauty supply.  I got two different tones.  I pearly something or other and a darker one, it developed pretty well on my hair, which was unbleached.  I think I used 40v developer.  A lot of my nautural red showed through until I dyed it again, but then it was good to go.  By the way, I actually have really thick hair..it's just the cut and the style...I have learned to manage it.
-Thanks for all the comments!

It is a combination of two pictures by Sam Brown, the artist for Explodingdog.com.  The one on the right is "The white sound in my head," and the left one, which is brand new, is titled, "All men die, not all men really live,"


I love your tattoos, Ive been thinking about a Exploding Dog for myself. Smiley

Thank you!  I have a new one coming up in a few days, I'll post a picture soon!

So that seems like a good excuse to do this:  Tour of my body!

Hip (this is a cover-up, I didn't try to hide that fact.. I wanted it big and chunky with crisp clean lines)


Upper back (when it was very very fresh-a long time ago)

----
Lower back: really bad crimson ghost tattoo I got when I was 17.. I don't have any photos of it.  I don't plan on covering it up, as it is hella big, but I do plan on some modification of it.


Leggies; from thighs to ankles


left underarm

--------
right forarm--NEXT WEEK!!!

Hello!
I think I posted a picture of my "do" a long time ago, and I haven't done much to it since, so I thought I would post a few:  I made my own extensions and wore a few tracks of them right behind each of my ears for a while.  I have a very sharply angled a-line and wanted a little bit of fullness behind my ears; this resulted in an a-line mullet type hairdo that I was quite pleased with:

--pretty much anything below my mouth is fake.  Please excuse the really geeky excited face, I have a new pet!

Then I got some new hair, dyed it grey and added it to my own freshly dyed grey hair!  It's curly and kinda wild so you can't really see the extensions, and probably don't even notice them if you don't know what my hair looks like without them..  It looks blue and blackish in these pictures, but it really was grey!  I loved it!  I kept it for a month or so and then grew tired of it.



I have since gone back to my natural dark red, but have added some bright red highlights in the front... I need to take a photo.
Do you think they grey suited me?  I had soooo many comments on it from older women, my 60 year old boss, who dyes her hair bright purple, was giving me sass about it because she fights her grey so much!  I think every option deserves a test drive before I can say I don't like it, so I went for it, and found it to be quite lovely when done voluntarily.

It's so funny, I haven't been able to use the internet in sooo long, and I have wanted to check this thread, and behold!, you are talking about exactly what I was about to mention:

After my next conventional tattoo (just a regular tattoo), I am going to get some permanant make-up.  I am getting freckles tattooed on, and am quite excited about the results, my problem now is finding a good esthetician or tattoo artists with this type of experience.  I've found one or two offices for permanent make-up in the yellow pages, does anyone know where else I could look to find these types of practicioners?  I live in Ohio.  Ugh.

My friend wants steps. And she wants me to do them. I have no clue how to do them. So the question is... how do I do steps without killing my friend? And what do I use?
Haha thanks.

The first time I did them on myself they were a bit wonky, but I have since done them three more times on myself and for 2 friends.  Basically I found the area I wanted them, pinned all the hair around that area back,  and hacked off all the hair in the area the steps would go (down to about 1/2-1/4 of an inch).  I then used a contrasting color of eyeliner to draw the lines on my hair.  This gave me a fair idea of where to shave my head.  I used a thin electric razor, the type men would use to trim carefully angled beards and such, and just kinda tapped the razor onto my head.  I did not pull down or push up, just set in on the spot for a second or two, pulled it back to see the progress, and then did the same thing until the lines were the length I wanted (does that make sense?) 
Keep in mind that when you shave the lines in, the hair attached and hanging beneath that spot will fall off (of course)--so be sure not to trim your hair too too short to begin with or you will just end up looking like you shaved a chunck of your head.   
I made that sound like a really really intricate process, but really it takes me about 1, maybe 2 minutes to do mine.
I like them, I can part my hair the other direction and hide them if I want...  It's like a secret hairdo.  It's like an ass tattoo or something, no one has to know you have it unless you want them to.

Here's my head:  One of these is already posted a page or so back, so sorry for the overload of my bugly mug.

my front (the thing about my hair is that it is not friend AT ALL--I have super soft sissy hair, which is almost a bad thing... So I tease and back-comb the heck out of it to make it look fried most of the time.  How wierd.  Yes, this is a halloween picture.)
 



Now you see them...


Now you don't..... It's all about which hairs to part where.

ok a weeeeee bit of hair memories (currently my hair is all natural in color and I have removed any of my extensions.. I'm some kind of neo hippy now, and I love it...I can be sooo lazy): 

The first time I did my steps:  Can you see the mistakes?  Hahaha, of course you can...they were pretty bad.  The hair spaces are uneven AND the lengths are uneven.  I waited about 12 days and then redid them proper.  My bang things are all fried out from pre-extension shampoo (YES I have a shirt on, and YES my room is TRASHED):


S-Curls with my mouth open like an idiot (bout 6 months ago):

My little bo peep curls... I fight these every day (bout 5 weeks ago-ish?): 

Age 19ish, about 3-4 years ago, black with strawberry blonde in front.  Yuck:


Buh-londe.  Last year sometime.  It had dark brown underneath.  Yuck again: 

haha, this spring when I saw some birds outside gathering things to make nests with, I decided to let my hair grow for a few weeks and then cut it outside on a windy day on my fire escape with no mirror.  So crooked.  So wonderful.  I actually saw a bird snag up a clump of my hair.  I nearly wept:

okay wow, Now, seriously, I will shut up.
