No photos and too drunk to make photos.

I have the head of a beautiful gypsy lady with a desiccated zombie body all inked in film noir shading brick background, and a cartoony sk8 punx version of my home city's coat of arms.

I'd have to disagree, but even if I saw him as one he couldnt amount to the shittyness of Danzig or Only.

I would assume that a dude with "Folk the Government" as his username wouldn't be a big George W. Bush fan, but I guess you learn something new every day.

I'm lame, I only have one and it's straight from an album cover.

Planning to get one based on a propaganda poster from Vietnam on the inside of my leg though which will be killer. Don't know if I'm comfortable with having an AK on my body though even though I support armed revolution, we'll see how it turns out.

You guys need to be telling the backstories for these beauties! Why you decided to get 'em, how you feel about it now, all that junk! Just pictures I can see any ol' time -- let's get to the invasion of privacy parts of tattoos.

I'm seconding Pwoink! Specifically, Hannah, I'm curious about your bug tattoos!
Title: Re: tattoo thread~
Post by: bee on June 14, 2014, 06:44:51 PM
there is literally nothing interesting to say about them haha. i have a tattooist friend who offered to tattoo me before i moved away and i was trying to cram in a few things before the end. i'd been looking at pretty pictures of cicadas and thought they'd fit nicely on my wrists.

as for my shins, the ghost and pumpkin is just because i like halloween, and the cat teapot is based on a real life cat teapot that i bought for about 2 pounds from an antique shop, but i sadly left it in the uk when i moved away. at least i have the tattoo to remind me forever.

People on varying forms of public transportation have actually come up to me to tell me what a cute cat I have on my arm.

gypsy lady

just a heads up, "gypsy" is a racial slur and you probably want to stop using it.

The holocaust remembrance museum in D.C. uses gypsy a lot, with Roma in parentheses, which I thought was very strange.  Especially since it points out that Roma is the preferred term, but then still used gypsy.

Not to derail the thread, sorry.  I have 2 stick and pokes, one which says "Black Coffee for a Black Heart" and has a coffee mug with a black heart on it, and another that has ssac in the nyhc logo, which is a joke amongst my friends for a club we made up called the super secret awesome club.

I guess if we're going to talk meaning of tattoos, the reason I have a friend's name across my toes is because he's a long time friend I grew up with, who died in a moped accident about 6 years ago, when he was 18. Jay was one of the best people I've ever ever met, funny and compassionate, just one of those bright bright light kind of people. Someone you knew would go on to do great things. I bought a moped, and he came into town to ride with me. He gave me a helmet, and about two weeks after that he came into town and we rode around again. He got into an accident that night on his way home, no helmet. It's hard to not feel responsible, and though I've learned to cope with it, it still eats away at me sometimes.

I have his hair sewn into my dread as well. I keep him around so I don't forget to be at least half as awesome as he was going to be. It's been 6 years but I still miss him dearly. While I was on tour I ran into someone I'd never met who had dreads, only to find out she went to high school with him, and got dreads after he did. She's going to send me some of his old writing I don't have. Weird world.

Thanks for telling us, Rory! I've noticed your dread before, but I didn't know the extra significance. That's a touching way to remember someone!

My tattoo stories aren't very cool or meaningful, but I love my tattoos.

My Godspeed kitties. I love Godspeed You! Black Emperor and have toyed around with getting some of their album artwork tattooed on me (I thought about getting the fists from Lift Yr Skinny Fists... for a while), but settled for the flying cats from Yanqui U.X.O. because it combines my love of cats with my love of Godspeed!

My lady. There's a tattoo artist in Austin, TX named Stacey Martin who I really like. I just found her online when my then-boyfriend was searching for tattoo artists in Austin when we were planning on moving there. She had this original artwork of a woman with a gramophone on her head, that I fell in love with. We ended up not moving to Austin and I took the artwork to a tattoo artist I really liked in Asheville and told him I wanted to keep the same basic idea of the art, but I wanted him to put his own spin on it since he had a much different style. This is what happened and I fell in love with it:

I use these tattoos mostly as bookmarks for where I was at at that time in life. I remember where I was living, how I felt, and the hopes that I had at the time. And that's enough of a meaning for me.
