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

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!!!

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.

I absolutely adore the "seamed stocking" tattoos! Which part of the leg hurt the most?

first:  In response to the comment about tattooes on curvier arms

Thank you everyone for the compliments.  My legs are the worst part of my body and I work out on them a lot, but they are just... thick-muscular..  before I got my tattooes, I had probably worn shorts/skirts once or twice in the last 5 years. One of the reasons I got these was to help me develop some confidence in the ability I have for my legs to be sexy.  They give me a reason to let my legs see the light of day...and when they don't, I feel like I have a hot little secret.  It helped my self-esteem to get my legs tattooed, and I think if you flatter your curves with ink that hugs your body correctly, a tattoo, or a few can really flatter your body no matter what shape you are



I thought behind the knee would hurt, but I hardly felt that or my thighs at all... The part nearing the back of my ankle made me twitch like crazy and tickled/hurt a lot more than I expected---I thought the ankles were going to be cake, but noooo.

I have the small of my back, both of my shoulders, my hip (twice),legs, and arm tattooed, but that inside of my arm was the worst so far...by far.


blah blah blah...
okay, I'll shut up now.

yes, Love will Tear Us Apart.  Joy division, Ian Curtis.  The only song I have ever heard that could explain my life line-by-line basically....It rips my heart out everytime I hear that little guitar chime that starts the song out.... not "rips my heart out," in necessarily a bad way either.

I know, I make no sense.
