interesting story though. It's kind of cool she was able to get tattooed by a famous artist who was the person she most wanted to meet...and the relationship that developed. Now that he died, she'll always have those tiny faded swallows to remember him by.

She got it free -- but I still think she got ripped off.

Well done. That is garbage, although she seems to think otherwise.

I am finding it very hard to believe that she didn't know the difference between good, clean work and what she got. It really blows my mind. A lot of the stuff on TV is better than that. even if she only had exposure to tattoos through tv, she would had to have known that so much more was possible.

I think this is the designer label version of a tattoo, it doesn't matter if the tattoo is good because it is recognizable as that dudes work so in some circles it's probably a status symbol of some kind.

Getting quality tattoos from top tattooers has never been a big thing in the Hollywood A list circles (I know I go to all the parties)

I feel like if you weren't into good tattoos before you had some level of celebrity it's not something you seek out neccesarily. Just because Scarlett Johansen has been in tons of movies doesn't make her any less apt to make bad decisons about tattoos as any other girl in her twenties getting her first or one of her first tattoos does.

Being pretty and having the ability to act does not mean that you can or do appreciate art.

Either that or I also don't get the "it's supposed to look bad" thing . . .

Personally, I'm not down with the "but it's supposed to look sh*tty" aesthetic.

Couldn't we qualify that attitude as a hipster thing? Seems like only a pretentious douche would say that.

If athletes can't get tattoos, I don't know who can. He's an NFL quarterback, not the President of the United States. Do they even show that much?

The guy writing that article is an idiot. He is already taking the position of "Oh I don't have any tattoos so crucify me now." I can't stand that attitude. As if the people with the tattoos are the judgmental ones. Just because you judge us for having tattoos doesn't mean we judge you for not.

And I'm going to step off my soap box.

    • Hi, posting here since the advice forum was blocked. I'm seeking advice on a tattoo for males to cover a scar going around my entire waist. It's very hard to find anything suitable for males. The best I found was this image. I can't even tell if it goes all around the waist but it's absolutely beautiful.  If anyone can tell me if this is some specific style of tattooing.  The images are so vivid,  I would honestly like to replicate it but don't even know what to search for. Can't quite find the words to describe it. I appreciate the help. I tried an image search and couldn't find anything like it. Nor can I make out the details.     
    • I had a tattoo on my calf last Saturday, so just over a week ago. It was a 6 hour tattoo so quite big. It's been painful to walk, stand etc and has swollen if I've been on my feet - which I have been as I've been at work. The healing wasn't looking like my other tattoos, but have held off as I just thought where it's a different part of my body and a longer time having a tattoo that it could be why. I was still having plasma leaking from it yesterday. I finally phoned the non emergency number here and they didn't seem worried, told me to go to my own doctor in a few days. It started feeling hot to touch and I could see some pus. So I went to to A&E and although they don't think it's infected, they've given me antibiotics to be on the safe side, have wrapped it in a dressing which I need to go to my local nurse and get changed on Tuesday.  The reason for this post.........the nurse said it looks like it has deep scarring. Is this going to effect the overall look of my tattoo, I'm gutted this has happened. Does anyone have photos of tattoos after infections or after deep scarring has happened? 
    • I went to A&E in the end as it was starting to feel warm to touch too and had some yellow pus. They don't think it's infected, just very irritated but have given me antibiotics to be on the safe side. It's also in a dressing now which I need to get changed in a couple of days. Pleased I went with my instinct and went today rather than waiting. Thank you for your comment. They've said that some of it looks like I have deep scarring 😢 hoping my tattoo doesn't look shit once it's healed.
