1  Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by SuperLupus on: December 19, 2007 08:14:34 PM
liasun, i think that piratecore suggested the curvy pin-up girl because on a female body, it isn't necessarily about objectification, and i think very often is done with subversive intentions. i think a pin-up girl tattoo can in fact be a very empowering one in that it allows us to reclaim the iconography of "perfect femininity" and modify it to better represent our own realities. furthermore, i see tattooing a sexy woman on a female body as being a way of celebrating female sexuality. if you don't like the idea, that's fine, i just thought i'd jump in and defend folks who do have pin-up tattoos as not necessarily encouraging damaging objectification.

Well said! I personally look forward to getting a pinup style tatt, kissing a frog. I need some serious help in finding or making imagery. I've been a chronic illness patient for going on 6 years, it'll be for the rest of life. I want this tatt to show people that people with illness, disability, or just plain ol' don't fit into social standards are still gorgeous and productive and valuable. You never know what you'll get when you kiss frogs! So don't give up on us who don't fit normal standards! I carry an IV and am on oxygen, but surprise! I'm expected to live into my eighties. As I gain control of my life I want to express it with adorning my temple with positive images.

Anyway anyone who can help compile imagery or put it together, it'd be much appreciated... Clothed but suggestive pin-ups. Classic style not cartoony...

but my first project (second tattoo) is the hamsa in between my shoulders. We can all use a pat on the back but the added protection is  super cool!

 I have cut my own hair since a botched job when I was 13 (29now). My advice, just pay. No I kid. Sharp skissors, lots of patience, don't try layers if you have straight hair (that takes alot of practice). If you like the shape of your cut now but just need a trim up it's a good way to follow their direction. Almost like cut the dotted line... just trim an inch or so to clean it up.

Blunt bangs you'll have to trim often (like every other week). Hair grows and quite frankly even worst case scenario you can get it fixed into a cute pixie cut LOL.

So I've obviously done all the things i said not to do. Layers and blunt bangs LOL but 16 years to get comfortable doing so.

3  Awesome Oxygen in Completed Projects by SuperLupus on: June 27, 2007 07:33:43 PM
So it's not super crafty... yet. But I think it has potential. I'm oxygen dependent and 29. I was tired of toting around my granny tank. Soooo, I spiced them up with thigh-high fishnets and stockings.

Thinking my more artistic line will happen for Christmas.

The one box with nasturtium seeds I mentioned, left in the restroom of my fave cafe:

I covered a wedding treat bag with bits from greeting cards. Inside I put a simple bracelet and earrings (left on park tables at rest stop).

5  onederful! Bubble Bath, Shower goo, even Shampoo! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by SuperLupus on: June 21, 2007 06:12:01 PM
I'm proud of this allin one goo. I like a lusciously bubbled bubble bath. Wasn't finding recipes I dug. So armed with knowledge of each ingredient I set out to make this perfect bath. So happy I want to share it with you...

Lemon Eucalyptus (the missing third might be found near my bathtub)

Oatmeal, Milk and Honey

2 cups Unscented shampoo base
1/2 cup Glycerine
1/2 cup Distilled water
1 tablespoon Cocamide DEA
1 ml oil scent of your choosing
1drop coloring

Combine ingredients. Funnel into three 8oz bottles and voila!

of course you can play with coloring and oils. I learned a few simple things.
1- I mix it right in my 32oz pyrex so I can use the pour spout to funnel them into the bottles
2-the one drop of color helps to know you've completely mixed the goo. When it's one solid color you're done!
3- The cocamide is worth its weight in gold... makes the most fantastic bubbles.
I know not saving the world. But I get giddy around good bubbles.
