There's a tattoo shop here that says that they'll tattoo anybody with parental consent- that scares me, a LOT! People go through enough changes between 18 and 23, imagine what changes you go through from 13- 18! I know you're not going to listen, because I didn't, either. But I did pay attention to the quality of work my underage friends were getting from these shops that didn't check ID. Just like viciouskittie said:
i think now the laws and shops are a lot more hardcore..at least the shops you WANT to get your tattoos done in are...
Exactly!When I was under age all of my friends were getting tattoos from shops that didn't check ID, but I waited it out, because those shops don't usually turn out the best work, if you know what I mean... now all of those friends have had to get all of their earlier ones covered up! Just wait until you turn 18 and can pick and choose your artist, it's a permanent mark on your body- you don't want just anyone with a tattoo gun and some ink to dictate what you're going to be wearing forever, just because you couldn't wait a few years...
I used to work at a sandwich shop in Richmond VA that sold a bunch of these sandwiches: ABC: slices of granny smith apples, crispy bacon and sharp cheddar cheese with a honey-mustard spread on pumpernickel bread Turkey & Apple Chutney: smoked turkey, cheddar cheese, homemade apple chutney, dijon mustard and lettuce on pumpernickel bread Patterson Ave. Shrimp Special: fresh bits of shrimp in a tangy cream cheese spread with lettuce and tomato on sour-dough bread. I personally can't mix sweet and savory, and I hate shrimp, but they sold like crazy! I forgot what was in the spread for the shrimp sandwich- it was a pinkish color, even though plain cream cheese would work. I also worked at a place in Nashville TN that made the best chicken salad in the world. It was made with chicken, ranch dressing, bleu cheese dressing, green onions, red grapes, and...celery? I picked out all of the crunchy things, but everyone else loved the stuff how it was. They also marinated strips of portabella mushrooms in a mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, & mandarin oranges. They would put them on a croissant w/ chicken slices and top with provalone cheese, then toast it. Both were so yummy...Sorry I can't remember exactly what was in these things, but I'm trying to put my years of working in a restaurant memories behind me...here are two easy to make veggie sandwiches that I like: Cream cheese, avocado, cucumber, & bacos on toast. Hummus, spinach, cream cheese on pita.
i'm not sure if this counts as a tattoo post, but i'll ask anyway i REALLY want to get a brand of the constellation orion on my arm but i don't want to go to some random shop to get it. do any of you know any shops that do branding in the boston area?
Beware- branding hurts A LOT, and it doesn't show up that well on some people's skin- I've gotten mine done twice and it still doesn't show up. It can cause really bad keloiding on some skin, too. I know it's not the same thing, but you might want to consider getting a tattoo of Orion instead of a branding. P.S.This sounds like I'm anti- branding, but I'm not- just do some research before you get one. BME is a good website to try.
Okay, guys- go to a MAC makeup counter and shell out @$15 for some SLICK frost. It's a silvery cream colour base that looks cool by itself, but it also makes regular eyeshadow pop and it helps keep it on for a long time. It lasts forever, so it's worth the initial $15, plus you can use it with cheap drugstore eyeshadow. At least go to the MAC counter and try it on, it's so great... Also, red makeup irritates your eyes more than other colors, but if your eyes aren't too sensitive, you can use lipstick and blush as a red eyeshadow if you can't find any regular red eyeshadow.
Whoa. I just finished remodeling a Barbie for a guy at work. He saw a Madame Alexander Tippi Hedren (from the movie The Birds) doll in a magazine, and I told him I would make him one. I used a doll from the Dollar Tree, but I'll use a real Barbie next time, mainly because she only had 2 rows of hair on her head. Anyway...it was SO MUCH FUN to do this project, and I think it would be a great craft challenge!
