Didn't see this thread on here. I am really big into tattoos and tattoo culture. Three of my best friends are tattoo artists. We are also heading out to Musink fest in march. Anyone on here in the LA area should definitely come check it out and say hi!
Anyways. What tattoos do ya'll have/want to get/ think are cool? Just a place to discuss tattoos and tattoo culture.
I'll start. I have my right arm sleeved in a full, traditional sailor jerry style. It goes from my wrist to the top of my shoulder. My left arm is sleeved with a bunch of different pieces, A 3 eyed raven with daggers through it on my forearm, LOTR piece on my forearm, stray cats logo on my bicep, and a bunch of smaller ones throughout. Working on putting the finishing touches on this sleeve. I also have an octopus chest piece on the right side of my chest, and a memorial tattoo for my brother on the left. I then have a tribute piece to my mother on my left calf. I have my last name i a filipino sanskrit from a martial arts I study down my spine. I have PLENTY more planned, and will be coming back from Musink with some more. Hoping to have both sleeves completely finished as well as my chest piece by the end of the year so i can start working on my rib pieces.
Worst spots I have had tattooed: Sternum was NO fun. Behind the knee sucked after a few hours. Other than that they haven't been too bad, elbow and elbow ditch werent bad, just healing sucks cause you can't move your arm. Spine was way better than i was lead to believe.
I have 2 planned and drawn, I just haven't had the money to invest. My chest is famiglia per sempre in a beautiful font, and on my upper back I want a bold eagle with the wings stretched to my elbows on the back ofrom my arms, with a flag behind it, and my grandfather's name and death date.
Those will all look super sick when done man! Its awesome they have such significant meaning to you! Yeah I usually get 3-4 a year. Three of my best friends are tattoo artists so I got lucky there. I am actually gonna be at Musink in La gettting work done by some legends in march for my bachelor party. Im already starting to run out of room unfortunately haha
I am a huge fan of tattoos. I have a left sleeve in a trash polka style with a saint/sinner ambigram on the backside and a upper sleeve of roses that isn't quite finished. Just some more shading to do. I also have a chest piece commemorating my parents passing. I have a right half sleeve with a grim reaper all freehand done by a guy with tourettes. Pretty crazy but tattooing is the only thing that helps him with his ticks. I also have a tribal skull on the forearm. I have a tribal infantry piece on my right shoulder across to the right bicep. My ribs are done from hip to arm pit with the Skin industries angel and devil but I haven't had the funds to finish the shading. My first piece if the Famous "F" that my dad drew before he passed away.
Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them
Fun thread! I have one small peace sign on my wrist I got as a rebellious 18 year old with my sister in law. She got a "Power T" on her foot for the Univeristy of Tennessee. I made out better in the situation!
Hell yeah! Glad to see there are so many people as into tattoos as I am! I can't wait for Musink this year. Getting some killer work done by some awesome artists. I am hoping to have both my sleeves completey finished by the end of this eyar so I can move onto my bck piece. It is gonna include my sanskrit, but it is going to be a plague doctor skeletong holding a lantern. My buddy has a drawing of it, il see if I can find it and post it up
i got mh "first tattoo" when i was in elementry. i dont consider it a tattoo because its just a simple dot on my finger. when i do get my first actual tat. i plan on getting a black rose not to sure where tho.
