I'll probably never get a tattoo. One tattoo looks okay sometimes, but an arm full of them or even a tattooed head is just ridiculous and ugly.

Surely, there are some proud tattoo owners here? Gert? Joachim? And Mighty, now's your chance to post a pic of your Portal tattoo, right?

I'm torn. From what I see on the streets/in porn, people are apt to choose the biggest crap (tramp stamps, Chinese characters, etc.). On the other hand when it's done tastefully and suits the particular person (i.e. you've got to be interesting before you get a tattoo)...

I'd like to have one, but as I like elaborate, big and detailed tatoos, I actually don't want to pay for one. I still think about an Alfons Mucha peice either as a sleeve or on my leg (see this for reference, but I'd like it more detailed and better http://www.nowcultured.com/images/2013/ ... sleeve.jpg ) and the best tattoo artists in my area said that it'll end up costing round about 3000 €. Nope.

Another one might be quite something like my avatar here, aka the motherfucking 2001 monolith.

And another idea I'd love would be a film roll spun around my arm, with every frame containing a scene / pictogram from one of my favorite films. But the tattoo guy told me that this would be too small detail and wouldn't turn out fine. :(

Eh, nothing like that. Decency, civil society ideals, shit like that. And actually he ended up fifth out of nine candidates with 6,84 % of the votes so he wasn't just some random freak.



The watercolour ones look fairly nice but I'm still not sure about the longevity. Will they look as out of place in ten years as tribal tattoos look now? Also, they fit in with the hipster look but what happens when fashion changes?

This thread has inspired me and I'm actually considering getting some tattoos within the end of the year. Of course, since I'm studying bookkeeping they'll have to be hidden while wearing office clothing.

Stuff I'd like to get:
Band LogosShow
Image
Although it's a band logo, it's also the Monas Hieroglyphica Image
Image
Some sort of shape related to mathematics (but closer to art) fucking around with shapes I guess. Maybe something like this (obv not the same size and location) except I want something where I can explain how it works mathematically so that my degree can at least have some use: http://i.imgur.com/uIaxUZK.jpg

A watercolour one. Dunno what yet but it definitely has to be abstract. Something like this: http://i.imgur.com/bTbXW.jpg

The tattoo I posted here before, but I'll want a different person. I'll post it here again: http://36.media.tumblr.com/c9769782a22e ... o1_500.jpg

The seven samurai banner, but without the flag itself, just the shapes.

Some medieval art. Going for either demonic or surreal. These ones are potentials:

I would pick one that really means something to you and will still mean something to you in 10, 20, 30 years from now. I compare it to decorating a room. Some stuff you put on your walls now, might be really interesting and cool to you right now. But maybe in 10 years you don't relate to it anymore and don't want it on your walls anymore. Like you probably don't still have the same posters on your wall as you did 10 years ago. But the stuff that really means something to you emotionally probably will always still on your walls.

I wouldn't mind getting a tattoo, but I have no idea what I would take. I've seen some cool ones, but not anything that'd fit me. So I just settled for the idea that they're cool, but not for me.

That's pretty much my take as well. It doesn't help that my dad got a couple of tattoos when he was in the navy and regretted them later.

Yea that's why I try to aim for stuff that looks cool in an artistic way. Because maybe if an emotional connection is gone, I can still think that it looks cool.

One of my tafe friends has a tattoo on her shoulder/back/arm but part of it the tattoo artist stuffed up (not sure how long ago she got it, year or so), so she's getting the bad parts removed and she was delighted today to discover it would cost her "only" $400 a session. Normally it costs $1000 apparently. Crazy.

K so I've decided to get the first 2 logos there soon right beside each other on my left shoulder. The Coil one will be in the inner shoulder with the Neubauten logo being on the outer (cause I don't want it in the exact same place as Henry Rollins has it). If I somehow lose interest with these bands (I can't see that happening as it's been like 4-5 years and I still love them) I might still appreciate the other meaning behind these logos.

For the Coil one I'm doing so much research now at that icon which is called the Monas Hieroglyphica, I wouldn't be surprised if I can write some mini-essay on it afterwards. Still, apparently a lot of the information is gone, and some of the text is lost in translation (it's originally in Latin). There are still a few more things that I gotta understand about what the symbol means, but when I find the answer to that it ends up making like 5 new questions. That shit is seriously complex. But still, I wanna know what's gonna go on my body.

I'm planning to book an appointment and have a quick consultation in 2-3 weeks, and I'll get the tattoo when there's the week off from fall classes so at the end October.

As I take it from reading a bit about it, it means so much that it doesn't mean shit at all. The more something signifies, the more meaningless it gets. -_-

There's even an online lecture made by an actual professor of Hermetic Philosophy on the symbol. He's in the Netherlands too.

I think I'm starting to get the astrological meaning of it, except I have to look more into what the Aries sign represents. Obviously more than just fire because above it is the cross of the four elements. The creator of it is also a 16th century Mathematician though and I'm just starting to look into the mathematical aspect of it.

On the days I'm lazy and I have to explain it, I'll just say that it's a band logo lol.

Another idea of mine was to get a line from one of John Dee's Enochian hymns, but I found out that some teen tumblr show called Supernatural features that language quite often. Gonna have to wait for the show to die and for them to forget it after a year or 2.

Best thing to do is just to have a shitload of ideas and list them. Then wait 3 years and see if you still want them.

I was planning to go to schedule an appointment today actually but I have to wait to see if I get that promotion or not first. If I don't get it, it'll have to be when I have at least a week off of work cause I'm not gonna work around tons of heat and a sweaty as hell cook's uniform with a healing tattoo, but if I do get promoted I'll just need a medical wrap around it while working.

Hey man there's hope. Look at the ratings on wikipedia. Started out with an average of 3.81 million viewers. Now at season 10 it fell down to 2.02.

At this rate, maybe 15 more seasons and then the show will die?

Is Supernatural still alive? I actually watched the first 5 or so seasons, then I just stopped caring.

Also Art, what you posted further up about noting ideas and then letting them sit for a time and then look if they still appeal to you is my approach to tattoos.
So far, few ideas survived, like the Mucha piece or the film roll, and those just fell through (for now) because of other reasons. And I don't trust any regional artist with a big H.R. Giger thingy I want for a while now.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Supernatural gained a cult following, mostly of teenage girls that go on tumblr and write incest fanfics of the two lead characters. I mean hell, apparently the term "wincest" was created just for all the fanfics created for that show.

And yes, it seems the fans also get tattoos of the Enochian language. That might not be the best idea though because there are no dictionaries or anything so I guess they just write English words (or the character's names) with that alphabet. That's why if I was gonna get it I was just gonna get a line from a hymn.

It's funny, one of the tattoos I am planning to get soon is a symbol also created by John Dee (and a band icon). My plan was to have that and Einstürzende Neubauten's logo right beside each other on my upper arm.

Whatever you do, get your tat in 3D.

How about a sincere commitment to irony?

Hmm an outdated and unfunny meme? That's not a bad idea...
