what's your opinion on the brutal black project?

Recommended Posts

Not my cup of tea, but as long as I don't have to participate, who cares?

When I see this kind of extreme work, it makes me wonder if they will regret it years from now. Must be the old man in me. I have a ton of work, but a long-sleeve shirt and pants covers it all.

You make your choices then you live with the consequences.

Feels like a gimmick to me, although people could say the same about some of my tattoos, so I guess it's all relative. It just seems like to some extent tattoos must have an aesthetic appeal and this is removing all the aesthetic value...which maybe is an aesthetic in and of itself? (I'm not hitting the blunt right now, I swear.)

To each his own. My ink is very personal and covered in my conservative work environment. I dont judge on extreme body modification but I think these folks may have a hard a hard time getting a job one day.

If I had the money and time I would be wearing a full body suit under my work clothes.

Failing to see the art aspect here. But hey some folks would say the same about my work.

Just someone's 5 minutes of fame.  I'm afraid things like this don't do any good for the impression of tattooing in minds of the haters.

I agree alot with what you are saying.

sure,everyone should bear the consequences for the choices they make. and I understand that some people enjoy pain, or the journey, or whatever, but for me when you start putting ink in your eyes, horns in your head, nose chopped off, holes in your face or just crazy black lines everywhere then you have gone to something else entirely

If they like it, who cares? Doesn't affect you. *shrug*

    • Thanks @Gingerninja !    
    • 1) You can shave or they can...I always shave myself. 🙂 2) Yes (kinda). Bring your music and earbuds. Eat. Drink. Rest up the night before. Bring snacks. Lots of sugary snacks. Six hours is a long appointment. Bring a pashima or hoodie to make yourself extra comfy. Don't forget your phone charger! 3) You are going to be stressed about your flight but you will be fine. You will be all wrapped up! 4) There will be plenty options to drink you water, coconut water, Gatorade, etc. It's not like you are pinned down.  You got this! @naturalbornchiller
    • Hello! I hope that this is the right place to ask these questions - I've already read through the entire thread and found lots of excellent information, so thank you all for that!  I'm getting my left upper thigh and half of my back tattooed in December/January, and I was wondering, if I'm not very hairy (I'm Asian so really just a tiny bit of peach fuzz), will they shave me anyway before my tattoo? I'm also wondering if anyone meditates to help deal with the pain?  This is my first large tattoo (I have 2 fairly small ones already) and after reading through the back tattoo thread, I'm a little worried.  I already meditate now and practice breathing techniques, but I want to be as prepared as possible.   I have to travel for my tattoo (1.5 hour flight each way) and for my first session for the outline (6 hours scheduled), I have booked my flight in and out on the same day - was this a silly move?   Last question that might seem really dumb - if the majority of my tattoo will be on my back, I imagine I'll be lying down on my front a lot so I was wondering if I should get a straw to drink water from?
