Funny tattoo requests

Recommended Posts

About 5 years ago, a girl I know asked me if I would give her a tattoo. I said possibly, whatcha got in mind? She said, "Right here in front, below the bikini line, Im gonna shave one side. And I want a tat of the pink panther pushing a lawn mower". I fell out of the chair laughing. And I declinded doing the work. LOL

That one had a popular streak some years ago, I've done it several times in a few variations...pink panther, goofy, mickey. Anyone have a clue to the origin? I'm guessing it had found it's way on a flash sheet somewhere along the way.

In the realm of funny below-the-bikini-line tattoos I've had a few "Est. 19__" whatever year come through the door lately. Not sure why you'd want to put a date on it, but I guess some gals do.

At that time, I did not feel confident to do the work correctly. I had only been out of prison about 3 years, and I didnt have much "coil" experience. As I look back, it probably would have turned out great, but hindsight...... you know. lol. Im glad I didnt, because even though it would have been right, it wouldnt have been as good as what I can do now. So im gald I didnt. Oh, and yeah, I seen it, she had one side ready to go. LOL

Ah I see, thought it maybe had to do with not liking the idea. heh

It'll give their gynecologist a good laugh. :P

Thankfully I don't need t see one of those, but I can't imagine having your gynecologist laugh during your exam would be very comforting.

One of the tattoos that I've done that never fails to make me chuckle was actually a piece I did during my apprenticeship. This 45 year old mexican man had come into the shop and browsed through some of the Cherry Creek crap we had in the flash racks. He found a tribal sun that was intended as a lower back tattoo, and he wanted it as a wrist band. Fucking hilarious. This man must have spent every day outside since he knew what the sun was, cause he had something more along the lines of elephant hide for skin. Reminded me a lot of tattooing pig feet, haha. I think his wife ended up getting a grim reaper from our other apprentice. Too funny.

I've done the classic moustache finger tattoo.. I put an exclamation mark on a middle finger the other day...redundancy lol

My mentor put a chick pushing a lawn mower on the top of a guys bald spot awhile back - that was amusing..but the classic sailor jerry bent-over monkey? He put that on someone with their bellybutton as the monkeys butthole...that was a classy moment in time:P he did an amazing job, and it was what they asked for.lol

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
