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*

    • One thing not to worry about is "being unique"....unless you or your artist just rips off another persons work, your tattoo will be unique. The classics are the classics for a reason. Have you considered a Battle Royale? A bit of a different take on the meanings but could be cool (do an internet search). Or if you are religious, maybe a Rock of Ages. I am throwing some classic ideas out just for fun.  What style are you considering?
    • Well i had that in mind actually, the problem is i can't find any good symbols that mirrors the words. 🤨

      Wisdon is easy = Owl.. 
      Truth, might be scale or something, but i think a scale is more of Justice.. 
      Honor, that' hard.. Maybe an animal, a Lion? 
      Compassion, hmmm a Rose? 
      Loyalty is hard to put into an image too.. :/ 
      Respect.. 
      Courage. that could actually be more like a symbol of mind because courage comes from sub-counciousness  :D 

      Oh. and the texts are not supposed to be in one big pile like in the picture i added. They will be split up, Honor, truth and loyalty will come near each other, 
      Compassion and wisdom are a pair, and Respect and courage a pair. 

      Or if im boring i will just list them on my back (joking) , because those texts or symbols to them are what i want. 
      They mean so much to me. There is always room ro fill in with something later.
