Squidpants/Leg Mania; or, where we're at with our leg tattoos.

I realized that besides for instagram photos in the Latest Tattoo Lowdown-thread, I haven't uploaded any proper hi-res healed pictures of any one the tattoos I've gotten since I first registered here 3 years ago. I'll make sure to get to that. Anyway, here's my twiggy pale legs at their current state:

OK, I'll play. These show most of my legs. I won't bore you with the sides of my knees or ankles. And I'm too lazy to type out who did what, but I'm happy to answer any questions.

Nice work....but some of them would look better with color.

Thank you! Yeah I really like color tattoos, I'm not particular in that way. But I think when you start to get many not too large tattoos and they're all in different color schemes you end up looking like a explosion in a paint factory. Not that there is anything wrong with that, some people pull it off , but being of my particular kind I would find it impossible to dress and end up only dressing in black clothes. Also I would probably be like "man.. I really wish this blue was a little bit more teal" after like 10 years. I don't know, I can only speculate on what it would be like. Black and gray on skin looks so nice. To each it's own I guess.

You have a real nice collection,but that ROA tattoo would look even cooler done in color.I love b&g work too,but all my traditional work is in color,and most of realistic stuff is in b&g.I guess I'm just not used to seeing traditional work done in b&g.Although it seems to be more prevalent in the city.

Thank you, again! Yeah I know, especially the ROA could be more dramatic in color. Also done by Peter Lagergren and his ways with doing color tattoos is just beyond. I've seen some quite complicated healed ones by him and they look truly amazing. If you don't know him I highly suggest you check out his stuff.

I don't know about how popular it is to get only b&g and only/mainly traditional but to me, judging by "the internet" it seems that quite a few people are doing it. I think it's a great strong look, a bit more primitive and raw looking than having a lot of color and fine lines. Actually I'm trying to get some prettier pieces as not to look too grim

Your collection is amazing. I love the b&g look and I think the way they all work together really brings a great cohesion to your leg tattoos. I have a ton of color in most of my tattoos, but if I had to do it again, I'd give very serious consideration to having more b@g.

    • Not quite sure what to think about Everence, other than it's definitely not for me.   I'd rather get a soundwave tattoo:   
    • hello all I have an update on my tattoo. I had an artist do a rework on my tattoo and in my opinion has done a fantastic job. she has Ellie done and some of Joel's beard but still has finish him and the giraffe,so for now ill just have a picture of Ellie and when i get time to go back and get it finished ill post a full on picture! This artist has added so much more life and detail into the tattoo I believe
