1  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by miffy on: April 14, 2008 01:19:09 AM
My second and newest, done on March 29th by Jay at Skinscapes North Tattoo in Mahopac, NY:

Excuse the dirty mirror shot. It's on my left shoulder (so you're actually seeing the reverse of what it really looks like). That picture is from right after I got it done so the colors are not as true as they are now... The nautical star (to symbolize home) is black and purple, and the smaller stars (starting from the nautical star and going out) are navy blue for my dad, turquoise for my mom, lime green for my little sister, and hot pink for me. We each chose our own colors. Purple was just chosen cause it looked good lol... sadly, the green needs to be touched up very badly. I lost a LOT of the color in a bad shower meets scab incident. I'll post a better picture when I get that done  Smiley

I must say... all my life I've wanted a tattoo (at least, as long as I can remember). This thread really inspired me and got me thinking about what I really wanted. I thought about what I wanted starting when I was about sixteen.
Then... for my eighteenth birthday, I decided to get it done. Only problem was I didn't know which of my ideas I wanted to get first (I had sooo many). My friend (her birthday was two days after mine) asked me if I would go with her to get hers done on her birthday. I figured I'd go with her to get mine done too, that way we'd be there to hold each other's hand and whatnot. So we went in the day before to make our appointments and while standing there, I realized: "I want an iris." I had never thought about getting an iris before. It was completely on a whim, but it was the only thing that gave me the feeling that it was meant to be my first tattoo. I had no idea what I wanted it to look like, I just knew what I wanted. The guy showed me some pictures and I didn't see a single one I liked.
That night... I spent a good few hours on every tattoo site I could find to find iris tattoos. I found just one that I wanted, but the picture was so small it was barely visible. I brought the picture in the next day anyway. He drew it up in about half an hour while my friend got inked and then I sat down and got mine done.
Here it is, in all its fresh-ink glory (gauze thread and all):

I'm absolutely in love with it. I got it on by back in memory of my grandmother. She pretty much raised me (at least, she was the only one around from the time I woke up in the morning until about seven o'clock at night every day). She passed away about three years ago. She's been my hero all my life, even more so now. She's the one that taught me how to sew and all other kinds of fun crafty things! I mean... you've gotta remember someone that teaches you that kinda stuff! Anyway. Enough babbling. It's an iris because 1) it was my grandmother's favorite flower, 2) it's the state flower of Tennessee, her home state, 3) she taught me how to spell by making me recite flower names and how to spell them. every. day. And... it's pink/white because she really loved pastel colors (the pink's a little bright here... it's much more subtle now that the tat is 3 months old).

Before I finish this book of a post: What I did was NOT a good idea. I'm absolutely in love with my tattoo. I'm positive I will never not love it. However, if you haven't thought about what you want to get for at least a very long time or if you've changed your mind multiple times or have been indecisive at all, you probably shouldn't get a tattoo. At least not yet. Wait until you find something that you know you're in love with. It's a lot like being in love. Wait until you know it before you commit.

Ooo. Stand! (Pardon the MS Paint sketch... but hey, it's an idea)

just sorta cut two pieces out of record (make them the same angle) and glue them to the back at a wide (75-90) angle and it'll be a record stand made outta records.

I really need help making stencils of these two pictures.  Every time I try and stencil them, I lose a lot of definition to the faces, especially around the nose and mouth.  Any help?  And I could use some tips for future stencil making.

I especially need help with the one below

I tried to do what I could with the pictures, but I couldn't really come up with anything.
In the future... tips to try are plain, high-contrast images. Try not to have too much background detail, because that will have an effect on the stencil. Adjust contrast a little bit and then make it black and white. Once it's in black and white, you can adjust contrast (which has very little effect, usually) and brightness (which has a lot more of an effect).

miffy = cute little bunny in children's books/cartoons.
Sorta like Hello Kitty, but not.

Anywho. Me and my boyfriend used to go to the bookstore every weekend and sit in the corner of the children's books section. We would read a few kids books together, just for fun and just to pass the time.
He's called me Bunny since the day we met, and while sitting in our corner every week, we came across a series of books about a little bunny named Miffy. We read every book, and we became obsessed. Now not only am I "Bunny" but I also acquired the nickname "Miffy". My email address is miffyiscrying@optonline.net, named after one of Miffy's books.
