  1. I'm a bloke and I completely agree with you, Beez! To be honest I'm looking forward to being the silver fox patriarch with the tattoos! What'll I do when I'm 90? Probably still be in the mirror, admiring my fabulous hair...
  2. My newest tattoo is just visible in short sleeves, this guy at work came up yesterday and went "ah *nod at tattoo* I was thinking of one for myself a few years ago, I went THE OTHER way though - abseiling". He said it so conclusively I'm wondering how fine a line I walk betwix getting tattoos on my skin and abseiling down walls. Other than that, nothing but curious peeping and lovely comments! It's interesting to see how many parents take a negative view - in my case, my mum seems to take them in and appreciate that they've added to her creation.
  3. I've long thought of a tribute to "The Goonies"! For me, it's more than a movie. I'm not keen on text (Goonies Never Say DIE!) but the image of them all huddled together is something I'm keeping in mind.
  4. I really like it mate, made me smile seeing the big double decker!
  5. Apologies for ear-wigging, but this gave me hope for a backpiece - due to training, I pay more attention to my back than my front but hadn't considered this when planning / dreaming up tattoo ideas. Nice one!
  6. Can't help you with the wording mate but I wanted to say it's a wicked idea! We put red roses down for my sis as she hated them :D Been trying to figure out the sibling thing for a while and I think you've nailed it with the brotherly "dig" if you get me? Sweet mate!
  7. My Dad - need to get more pics!

  10. I think I'm in the camp of laughing-at-the-dodgy-imitations, but tbh it'd get to me if someone ripped my work off, whatever it was. I've actually been worrying about the whole thing for a long time as I've been totally in love with several images but of course didn't want to copy them. I booked in my Day of The Dead girls (well, the first one) on Tuesday. I took in the crumpled pictures and notes I've carried for ages and had my speech ready about "not wanting to rip off exact images" etc, despite how it may look. The tattoo artist didn't even consider that I'd want exact copies of them, d
  11. My first sighting was my dad's tattoos. He's (t-shirt) covered in underground tattoos from the days before he met my mum. It must have been so annoying for him but bless him, he never stopped me! At night I'd curl up behind him in bed and "play" with his full back Battle Royale, walking my feet up and down it, pinching the snake's nose, pulling, punching, twisting their faces... never thought till now how much patience my dad has! Any time at school when we had to draw our family, our hero, in fact any kind of "grown up"... that's right! A dodgy stickman dad with big circles for muscles,
  12. No re-wrapping for me - despite the tattoo artist advising to do it for best results, and knowing people who have done it and healed great. I burned myself once (as in flames) and the "burn victim treatment" did not work. I don't know the biological reasons for this. I've browsed and lurked for a while and though I reckon lots of folk know, I've not seen it mentioned - My lifestyle is largely intense weight training so when it comes to healing, at the forefront of my mind is nutrition. Don't worry, I'm not one of those tedious protein-shakers. In my mind my skin is the same as the rest
  13. Longest for me is my tribal piece of a wolf (modified to look like a pic of my old dog) and it took 7.5 hours - loved every second but my body kicked in on the way home and I melted down the wall at the train station :eek:
  14. Haha, I'm never far away from one! I have mate yes - Georgette at Bitch Ink in Ockendon did my other two, and providing she's still there that's where I'm going. - - - Updated - - - Thanks I appreciate it! I'll definitely be posting up the results or work-in-progresses!
  15. Hello everybody! I've sat on the sidelines for a little while now and have enjoyed a lot of threads, so I'm signing up now. This Friday I'm going to the Tattoo parlour to share my plans with the lady there and see if she's up for tattooing me. I have two tribal pieces and although I still love them, I'm after something different and plenty of colour. Strange how my tribal pieces have changed in my mind - I've actually lost the connection to whatever got them on me in the first place, now they serve as milestones in my life and bring faces, feelings and even smells to the surface. They're
