Lol, me too.  The huge multi theme swap is going to keep me pretty tied up for a while, but I would LOVE to do this.  Damn it.  Maybe in June after I finish the monster swap.

Okay! I'll be the first! :) I won't post every one, but here are some of my favorites. My chest piece:



My arms:



My ankle:



That last one was taken when the tattoo was pretty fresh and scabby so the webs look a little weird.

You are all some really gorgeously tattooed momma's!
As of tonight we have eight swappers checked out, as well as a ballsy runyerpockets77, who's jumping into swap territory for the first time.
There was a question I received over pm about if this swap is only for those who are tattooed. I wouldn't feel comfortable discriminating over the virgin skin Craftsters so let me mention now that anyone with an appreciation for tattoo culture is entirely welcome to join.
I look forward to getting more questionnaire's and the partnering up process.

Yay, I feel so lame for not getting this up myself.

As for tattoos - I want to get my chest done however next I am starting on a leg piece with all the characters of Totoro. I have all kinds of tattoos, I think this one gets the most comments - it is small (one of my smaller ones) but I guess it gets the point across:

Okay so here are a few of my tattoos.


My blue ringed octopus on my right shoulder. Sorry for the date, new batteries.


My sparrow, with the name of my son. It has flowers that wrap all the way around. It's on my lower left leg.


This is my cousins tag work. It is really hard to get a good picture of it. This is on my right arm. That little mess at the bottom actually has his tag name in it, BLUR. It was taken from one of his paintings.

To those that sent in their information today, kittykill will be getting back to you with your approval, I've sent your answers to her. She's taking charge of the next ten swappers so that we're able to keep all the information in order.
We're up to fourteen applicants, I believe, not including your sassy mod's. Thanks for sharing your lovely tat's all! Keep it up!

I would love to join this swap but I am waiting on my tax return for my first tattoo.. I don't even have my ears pierced :P I don't know if I could be inspirational enough.. I'll think about it.

I have nothing pierced. 11 years ago I got my lip pierced and it healed wrong. My ears swell up if anything metal touches them. I do not want to try to stick metal anyplace else.

I got my first tattoo in my mid twenties after my sister died in a car crash due to a drunk driver. My sister got tattooed a few years back and I finally wanted to get some work. So I decided on a really simple black and blue star outline...After that I was going back monthly - till the artist started doing crappy work. I have more memorial stuff for my sister but also I have gotten pieces for my mom (fleur de lis - spelling is way off and I am to lazy to google it!), cats for my cat, and a few inspired by my boyfriend like a creature he made me and an anchor with a heart - inside are his initials. My parents (inc. step) and boyfriend are virgin skin but all my younger cousins I grew up are inked. When we get together we compare stuff...

I don't have much pierced, just one hole in each ear. I actually got both pierced a second time but it hurt REALLY bad and I took the earrings out after about an hour and the holes closed up. I don't like needles and I can't handle them going all the way through parts of my body. Hours and hours of a needle grazing my skin however, no problem.  :D

I got my first tattoo when I was 17. I was on a school choir trip to Europe and we all went crazy and got tattooed in Limerick, Ireland the day after St. Patrick's Day. I had no idea how to take care of tattoo so the sun that I got looks really crappy, but I love it cause it's my first. For a while I was determined to get a tattoo in every place I visited, or if it was a trip that would take me to many places, just one per trip. That changed when I turned 21 and realized that now, for me, it's way more about having really good artist's work on my body. I still like the idea of my travel tattoos, and am not opposed to getting more, but I'm way more careful about what I get than when I was younger.

Sun in Ireland? In March?!
Just teasing. The six months I lived there, as well as the annual visits to relatives, always leave a fine coating of moisture on my memories.

And I am approved!  Now I have to get a second person and my camera together to takes some pictures of my ink.  UrsulaDiamond, I can relate to your problem--two of mine are on the backs of my arms, and that'll be a pain to photograph myself.  ;D

For now I'll just talk about 'em.  I have Thor's Hammer on my right arm, the Gripping Beast on my left, six zebra-striped stars on my stomach and an old school-inspired dice and cards on my right calf.

 hehe, i'm pretty much the opposite of that needle fear- i love being pierced, but i can't think of any other place that would be good to put one right now.  i had one of my van dykes done three times, and the second time the artist walked the scar tissue.  i would imagine that would be like torture to a lot of people, but i really liked it. 
  as to ideas for what to make?  i was thinking a kind of drawing pad that was decorated and travel worthy, for new tattoo ideas would be cool.  or maybe like a u-shaped pillow (like on a massage table) for when someone gets back work done.

I think that, for those of us who don't have any ink yet, something like vinnie451's New Ink in the New Year ( seen here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225056.msg2434726;topicseen#msg2434726 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225056.msg2434726;topicseen#msg2434726) ) would be amazing.
I know I'd love something like it. :)

So says the master organizer! As all of the swappers under kittykill can attest, it takes a special touch to keep all the paperwork in order.


Aw, bummer....Organizing is fairly easy, you can always get a co-organizer

Alright, the last several swappers have been approved by kittykill and added to the list. Make sure you have the 'In Progress' stamp. Welcome to the swap.

octupusgirl13, Missmuffcake is right on target.
Also since you do not have bad feedback, rather still are in progress, you can enter this swap provided you posted or had posted pictures of your item or we'll contact the organizer. I'm a bit of a sucker for delayed feedback so I feel bending the rules might be in order?

You're not really allowed to bend the rules, it's a no no really :P  You could put her name on the list as pending feed back, and hope(!) she gets it in time to join, which is likely cause there's still plenty of time :)

Showing off my tattoos is usually a sad occasion for me. Not a single one of them is finished. Why, you may ask. I've had some very strange run ins with tattoo artists. From being unprofessional in general, to being high and messing up the work, to propositioning me for sex in lieu of payment...

If it wasn't for my intense need to have my ink done I'd probably avoid tattoo shops all together.

Here is a little montage of my pieces...

(I can't say what I want to make cause I don't want to spoil anything for my partner! Who knows who it will be? No one!)

Cookiemaker, you could make tattoo inspired cookies! I know I would love them :D Decorate with frosting or those funny cookie markers (I don't know if I would eat those though :P). You could paint something, decopage a notebook cover or box, embroider on something, if you sew, there is a ton of tattoo themed fabric you can find, knit or crochet something with skulls or sparrows on it, search on craftster or etsy like Shorty to find more ideas.

The possibilities are endless! (Cliche, but so true!)

yeah it is indeed saint Michael. i don't know why my brother picked him though. we love saints! in april I am starting a back piece of Joan of Arc, she's the patron saint of women in fear. we go to the same artist and it is going to be black and grey too.

I went to Michael's today and tried to get a few ideas...I am rather sick/havea  load of apin with shingles right now so I just looked for a bit...I had to get over to Best Buy to see if a few CDs came out of bands we saw in SF play in the last few weeks...

Not really a picture of my work but you can see a basic outline of some of my arms. Sorry for the crap dark quality - it was vending night at the punk bar/club. Both shoulders are done (one needs to be redone, the artist totally sucked at my girl-skull), both inner wrists are done, my outside right wrist and my inner arms are covered in the creases...Sorry I will get better pics up when I feel better! I just wanted to post something, I just had a Rock Star and need to stay up to cook my boyfriend dinner when he gets home at 1AM from work!

I wouldn't dare cheat! It just happens a fair percentage of the swappers listed old school as an interest.
For being gung ho about the swap I don't really have good pictures of my own tattoos, too much t&a really.

My back was the painful spot, at least on my back right before the neck. I have some work done on the spine area!

I was surprised, closer to my shoulders hurt a lot more than my spine, but it definitely all hurt, lol.

I went out of town today and stopped at their Michael's and found more ideas and some 'just in case stuff'...

I watched LA Ink last night - guilty pleasure since I think Kat Von D is trashy. Did anyone catch it? I really liked that guys cheese memorial piece...Does anyone else have food ink? I have a banana on my left ankle and cherries (with cat faces) on my back...

I sold a bunch of stuff at my mom's yard sale today and I think I will put some of the $ towards new ink. That and $ to a no kill animal shelter that helped us out today when we found a baby (5 pound - est. 2 year old) doggy on the side of the road. I can't get him out of my mind...

my sister is consulting right now with her artist about an asian themed asparagus tattoo- her artist is sketching it, like a sumie-e bamboo style piece, only with asparagus.  also, my friend gabby has a pretty rad sacred heartichoke on her arm.  food tattoos are neat.

I would totally love to see the banana, asparagus (when it's done) and especially the heartichoke  tattoos! Give us some pictures, ladies!

I cannot wait for the swap to start, I'm almost done with one of my "in case" items, I started it before I even joined the swap so hopefully I can use it, if not present for me!

Hi all!  This is going to be my first swap in this community.  I'm pretty excited. :)

This is one of my tattoos.  My first one I got when I was 18 or 19 years old and it was a small tat on my ankle.  For one of my 30-ish bdays I decided to go big for my second tat. :)

One more update before kittykill & I set ourselves knee deep in partnering. I've read through all the answers and have a general idea of who's with whom. As of the moment we have an even twenty-eight. I'm inclined to let it turn midnight before closing the swap so I'm trying to not jump ahead of myself here.
Thanks to all those who have been posting pictures of there tat's! I've seen some absolutely lovely art in this forum. If you haven't felt comfortable posting pictures in this forum, hopefully you and your partner will be exchanging pictures of modifications you have (or want!).
That's about it. I know everyone is anxious to get started so we'll do our best to provide swap partners in a timely fashion so you all can get to crafting!

It's all the same artist, the angel was done in 1998, and the sun and moon were added in 2002.

my David Bollt fairies on my back....done in Biloxi, MS by Jason...wish I knew where he was now!

foot stars...each star is a play I have been in...my best friend has the same tattoo....got them in Germany on our last trip...

my hubby....got in Germany same time as my foot....it's not wonky like it looks...it's very hard to take a picture of your own wrist!

celtic armband...my husband has the same one only thicker and his is connected where mine is still not done on the inside of my arm....his is awesome! he was sneaky and he got his finished while he was going to school in VA! this was done by Dave at Blue Horseshoe Tattoo in VA.


I also have a hideous tribal heart on my lower back, "ass antlers", that I HATE. it was my first tattoo and I plan to cover it up with more David Bollt art.
My next tatts are going to be nautical stars, possibly a Sailor Jerry Navy Pinup, stars up the backs of my calves, a half sleeve with dragons, cherries somewhere....oh the list goes on and on....

Here are two of my tattoos.
This is across my chest and it has my mother and father's name on it.


This is on my right wrist and goes all the way around


I also have a black cat on my ankle and "Fear no man" on the back of my neck. I have one on my left arm that I was going to take a picture of but my batteries died in my camera. It's a family crest.

Just got home from work to a dozen new messages.
First, make sure that when you message your partner you do not reply directly to the message I sent to you last night. I've gotten several messages so you may want to check your outbox for the proper reciever.
Second, we're so glad that you all seem happy with your partners. It was an absolute bear to do with so many wonderful people. Besides one small confusion everyone else seems fine. Make sure to pm us if anything else comes up.

Get to the messaging and crafting!

Man, I can't wait to get started.  It was gonna be today.  I had a couple to AC Moore and everything.

...Then I worked 24 of the past 36 hours, including driving 60 miles to cover in another store after working a full shift in my own, then another 60 miles home...

...I'm kinda wrecked today.  I have tomorrow off, I can't wait to sleep and begin the theraputic crafting.  Ahhh....

So, I went to a Salvation Army last night with one of my best friends.
I saw a t-shirt with this amazing tattoo design on it.  I wanted to get it so I could recon it for something, but I didn't have the money to (and if I did.... I would've bought the two antique sewing machines there for my collection first :'( )
So instead, I took a picture on it and hope to stencil it for something for this swap. ;D

I tried PMIng my partner a few days ago asking her some Qs. Maybe it did not go through or she is a busy lady.

I am working on my medium2 item. I call it med2 because it is a 2 hour project and my large is a large but not really. While not giving it away I will say my L is a 3+ project, however an hour of that is due to dry time...I do not know if that is OK. My large is really bad-ass if I do say so myself and my boyfriend backs me up. :) I am also deciding on some extras that I have held up at my boyfriend's mother's house. We kinda were using his old room asa crafting corner till she got mad and banned him from the house. So when we know that she is not around we try to sneak our stuff out.

Last week I got a PM on myspace from the guy I got my last two tattoos from to come in, that I seem to be MIA. I think I deserve a tattoo. If anyone was reading the OWS32 thread they know the hell I went through with paypal not to mention a bad case of the shingles...

I tried PMIng my partner a few days ago asking her some Qs. Maybe it did not go through or she is a busy lady.


You may have been one of the swappers that sent me a message by accident, if you replied to the questioniare, check your outbox.

 in swap news, all crafting has come to a complete halt at my house, as my 3 yr old is super sickie.  every soft furnishing (and almost a dozed stuffed animals) in the house has been vomited on and laundered at least twice in the last 2 days.  the only way i can get her to nap is by rubbing her feet until she falls asleep in front of the fire watching Cars.  ive been puked on like six times and im not even kidding.  if she's not better by tomorrow i have to take her to the doc. the washer and dryer have run non stop for two days, but luckily i'm (knock on wood) not sick (yet.)

Well, I tried a new craft last night in the hopes of using it for this swap, but it failed miserably. I think I know what went wrong though. I've just been collecting pictures and ideas, planning everything out.

thanks for the good vibes, guys!  we're mostly better now. (i have mutant healing factor on my side, so i get over stuff pretty quick)  my poor DH, though, he's off at work, probably infecting his entire office with the stomach flu. ah well.  crafting to resume after the carpets have been steam cleaned in three rooms.  i'm glad i started before we got our partners, most of this week is shot as far as craftiness goes.

Aparently my package is going to have a theme to it (besides tattoos...)!  I hope lilyvanilli likes _ _ _ _ _ _!  (Nothing dirty, I swear! :D)  I need to pick up the pace with the big stuff... I'm almost finished with my first medium but I still have to start on the large and the other medium... I kept having great ideas for small stuff and so now I think the smalls are going to be taking over!

ARGH! I have finished 2 of my items! WOO HOO! And yet another one I want to keep for myself! Phooey! I guess both of these would be considered *medium* in size but they each took me a whole day to complete.  Tomorrow I start my large item. I am so excited, I cannot WAIT to see the gallery on this swap!

Every one is so quick. I have started but my progress is slowing. Hopefully while the child is in bed and the DH is gaming I can accomplish more than sketching pictures of what I want to make.

I worked on it for a few hours last night, but the real crafting is going to begin this afternoon when I get off work. I'm off for the next 2 days so it's craft city baby! ;D

I've done up all of the designs for my pieces. I'm working on the first medium one now. There is going to need to be some serious crafting time in order for me to get all of these done. I'm so excited though, I really love my body art and I love the theme of our body art as crafts/art.

well, i am done with 2 things, started on the last yesterday (other than the *extras*  ;) ) and MY SEWING MACHINE BROKE!!!! Well...let me 'splain. When we moved back over here from England, something happened to my machine. The handwheel will not budge. I don't know what's wrong with it. The only place I can find to fix it has like a 2 month back up. Ugh. So my friend brought me her machine when she came up from SC. So I happily go to use hers yesterday and IT'S BROKEN!!! THe bobbin is all screwed up.

SOOOOO......I ordered me a brand new machine from the home shopping network last night! HAHAHAHA! It will be here this week!

Arrgh! So upsetting!
Hopefully when I go out tomorrow I'll be able to pick it up, since I'll be down the street from a craft store.
:)
I'm glad I've had extra time to toy with the idea, though.
I originally had one thing planned, but after playing around with the idea (during my English class ;D ) I came up with something I like a lot more!

ok, so i have several of my swap items finished, but not the largest and most complex part.  If i can't get it done and out by wednesday night, would it be better to send two separate packages or wait and send it late?  I'm not sure which would be better.  the DH recommends sending part now and part after i get back; he's all "better to get some of it on time than empty promises."  what do you all think? (got talked into flying out of town for passover dinner thursday, will be gone a week, and will be the sole parent with a spoiledy butt 3 year old)

Eek!
Sorry that I disappeared all week!
Worst spring break ever.  My computer crashed and I just got it back with two days left until school!
But I did work!
I've finished a small and medium, and have been hard at work at two larges.  :)
They're taking quiiite a bit of time!

I'm almost done with my large! It's kind of turned into an extra-large. :D It's looking really good! I'm about 50% done with another project and then I just have one more thing to make. What's it going to be? I don't know! I have two ideas and I might just end up doing both if I have the time. :)

 I didn't make it to the post office before they closed today.  Ugh, stupid office meetings.  They never end when they tell you they are going to end.    So I got there hoping to be in line but no.  I will be going bright and early.  I pm'd Nix to give her a heads up.

Im so excited!!

oh, man.  i managed to check in on craftster for a few minutes each day during my trip, but i am back now.  it was so stressful.  i'm not saying i don't love my sister, but damn, that sucked.  after spending an entire week cleaning and cooking (i apparently have some severe OCD issues, and i can't relax if things are messy....and my sister and her two male roommates live like college students.  nuff said.) and basically being hard working and stressed out, my flight was delayed 5 hours and i spent 9 hours total at seatac, with my 3yr old. (and only 3 of those hours drunk, alas.)  so my wonderful awesome rad husband had cleaned our house really thoroughly and had flowers and stuff waiting, but the minute i got home he's like "ok now finish your tattoo swap because you're super late, deadbeat."  anyhow!  i WILL mail out by the end of this week.  im sorry!!

In order for me to leave feedback, I need to be certain of the people who have sent and/or received. So if you could please just send back a quick message noting your status I would really appreciate it.
This swap has been wonderful to organize and I know kittykill and I appreciate how it went. I assume everyone is happy with their packages, so almost everyone is going to get positive feedback. If there are any problems please note them in your return message.
Thanks again!
Diana
