Natalie's Geisha Butterfly

Tue, 27 Sep 2011 09:13:00 +0000

Last month, I ran into Natalie on Seventh Avenue and 24th Street. She had several tattoos, but shared this geisha, with butterfly wings, floating on the top of her back:

She got this about six years ago in the city of Leeds from an artist named Diego.

When I asked why she got this particular tattoo, she replied, "I kind of just wanted something that was quite girly, yet strong at the same time."

Natalie is a professional photographer whose work can be seen on her website here.

Thanks to Natalie for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

It's a Blog World After All

Tue, 27 Sep 2011 09:12:00 +0000

It's not unusual to occasionally run into someone who's been featured on the blog before, especially in my neighborhood, but this morning I ran into four former Tattoosday subjects. So, out of sheer laziness and the desire to share these encounters, we'll be revisiting these old posts.

First, I ran into Melanie, whose Marilyn Monroe tattoo appeared earlier this year here.

I spotted her where I first met her, in the laundromat. We were chatting when Sandra walked by and said hi. I also met Sandra in the laundromat back in 2009. Her tattoo was featured here.

Then, I ran into James and . James was also a laundromat encounter, although his son went to school with my youngest daughter, so we had seen each other around the neighborhood a lot. Today I ran into him about a block from the laundromat. James was here on Tattoosday in our second post, back in 2007! It's worth checking out here, just to get a perspective of what the site was like "back in the day."

James was walking with his girlfriend, Jeanette, who I met on the subway in 2009, and featured here. What's remarkable is that, at the time, James and Jeanette were not a couple, and I only learned they were together almost a year later, when I ran into James and he told me that his girlfriend had been featured on the site as well.

So, there you have it, folks. Small world, Tattoosday-style!

Colleen Returns to Share Some Lovely Ink

Tue, 27 Sep 2011 09:11:00 +0000

I spotted a woman with some really great tattoos out on Penn Plaza and, after talking to her a brief moment, realized it was Colleen, who appeared on Tattoosday once before, back in 2009, as chronicled here.

Colleen shared two tattoos that grace her upper arms:

Colleen loves this tattoo and I can't say I blame her. As a Buddhist, she appreciates the symbolism of the lotus and the om on the skull. She explained:
"the lotus comes out of the mud at the bottom of the water and blooms out of that and that's ... birth. And the skull [represents] death."
The piece encompasses the cycle of life and death. She credits this wonderful work to Patrick Conlon at Graceland Brooklyn.

Colleen also has this work on her right arm:

Colleen explained that the dragon was there first, and then Patrick added the fire and pansies, to make it a much more beautiful tattoo.

Thanks to Colleen for sharing her tattoos with us (again) on Tattoosday!

Tattoo Process hi hi

Sat, 15 Jan 2011 09:00:00 +0000

Several steps of preparation involving the workstation, equipment, and pigments take place and may mean some waiting time spent idly gazing at flash or watching somebody else get tattooed. The design is prepared with either a transfer or a stencil.

The skin, no matter the part of the body involved, is shaved and given an alcohol wipe. A temporary ink outline of the design is placed on the surface of the skin and checked in a mirror. And all of these steps take place before a single part of actual tattooing begins.

This article is designed to relieve the natural anxiety that any new experience brings, by demystifying it and laying it bare. Knowing exactly what to expect, in the order it will likely happen, and the amount of time it will likely last, can mean the difference between a nerve-racking experience and an enriching one.

This article advises tattooees of some of the potential regulations involved, their responsibilities, the responsibilities of the tattoo shop or artist, and the requirements of payment up front and signing contracts. In addition, the prospective tattooee will learn that tattoo artists also have their own expectations, and that fulfilling these can make for an even better experience and better tattoo.

Full Body Tattoos

Tue, 04 Jan 2011 16:07:00 +0000

No matter what the art, craft or competition may be, there is always going to be certain people who insist on taking the norm, and elevating it to a new level of pure insanity, and these overly daring individuals are sometime referred to as extremists.And while tattoos and extremism usually aren't two words you hear uttered in the same sentence, these artsy dare devils below have taken the concept of body art to a whole new and uncharted territory of no return, or at least any chance at restored normalcy.This picture gallery below contains some of the most tattooed men and women alive, including from left to right, the Guinness world record holder, Lucky Diamond Rich, Tom Leppard and Julia Gnuse. Full body tattoos like the ones seen above, cover almost every inch of visible flesh except small facial areas around the eyes, like in the case of Leopard Man and the Illustrated Lady on the right. What possesses these tattoo obsesses enthusiasts to venture down the road of full body art, you ask? Well each and every one of them has their own separate story behind their quest for complete bodily artwork, however i personally believe they all have one thing in common. Hugs, and not enough of 'em... So the next time you think about going all out and getting a full body tattoo, perhaps reconsider and simply enjoy this little picture gallery of the most tattooed people in the world. It should hold you over until you grow outta this extremely mind numbing phase, which we all go though at some point. Wink wink...[...]

20 Worst Tattoos For Men | Stupid Idiots

Tue, 04 Jan 2011 16:07:00 +0000

20 Worst Tattoos For Men | Stupid Idiots We’re not sure why guys get elaborate, over-the-top tattoos (like these 5 Crazy Ronald Regan Tattoos). We just know the people who get them have serious issues we don’t even want to know about (especially, if you got this Patrick Swayze tattoo). That reminds us, we should call our parents. Check out the 20 Tattoos You Don’t Want To Get (If You’re A Guy). 20. The One that Makes You Look Like Skeletor Needless to say, this man’s dream of becoming a grade school teacher ended the day he picked out this tattoo design. On the bright side, at least he knows what his Halloween costume will be for the rest of his life. 19. The One That’s Sure To Get You Pulled Out Of Line At Airport Security Nothing irks us more than being subject to extra security at the airport. But, if you’re sporting Osama Bin Laden ink, you have no one to blame but yourself… and the infidel American dogs 18. The One That Makes The Back Of Your Head Look Like David Crosby As “interesting” as we think this tattoo is, we prefer tattoos that make the backs of people’s heads look like Stephen Stills or Graham Nash. 17. The One That Makes Your Naval Look Like A Cat’s Rectum There are bad ideas, there are really bad ideas and then there’s this guy. Spending time and money to have this rendered onto you stomach illustrates just how enamored this guy is with the feline poop shoot. 16. The One That Looks Like A Heavy Metal Album Cover We’ve always wondered what Hell looked like. Now, thanks to this one man’s back, we feel like we’ve got a clear image. Thanks freaky, crazy dude. 15. The One That Proves You’re A Good Catholic Your grandmother can talk all she wants about how many Rosaries she’s said in the last week, but until she gets some papal ink, you’re the one on God’s good side. 14. The One That Makes A Dead Loved One Look Like A Witch It’s tough when a loved one dies. It’s even tougher when said loved one has to spend the rest of your life looking like a witch that lives on your shoulder. 13. The One That Answers The Question Of Whether Or Not You Believe In Aliens Based on this tattoo, we know one thing. There are plenty of unintelligent life forms here at home. 12. The One That Depicts Your Head As A Grand Slam Breakfast We love a greasy, diner breakfast as much as anyone, but at no point in time have we ever thought that breakfast should find permanent residence on the top of our heads. 11. The One That Clearly Outlines Your Priorities Some people have a hard time getting their priorities in order. Others are so certain about them they have them painted into their back flesh. Daughter Courtney must be very proud to have beaten out America and “Star Wars” for the top spot. 10. The One that Shows The World Hulkamania Isn’t Dead “Whatcha gonna do, brother… when Hulkamania runs wild all over your pale, doughy, sorry excuse for a back!” 9. The One That Puts Your Excessive Shoulder Hair To Good Use There are two types of people in the world. There are the ones who are self-conscious about excessive body hair, and the ones who use that body hair to create horrible tattoos. 8. The One That Illustrates Your Secret Desire To Be A Superhero Look we all wish we had super powers, but most of us don’t decide to turn our chests into a flesh-torn homage to Spider-Man. We prefer to use that particular area to pay tribute to Captain Planet. 7. The One That Implies E.T. Gave Birth To Jesus We always thought the idea of a virgin giving birth to the Messiah was a bit of a stretch. What happens when E.T. is that virgin[...]

butterfly Tattoos more skin deep

Tue, 04 Jan 2011 14:22:00 +0000

I got my first tattoo, girl tattoo at the age of, oh, about eight. It was a traditional anchor, displayed proudly on the forearm, like sailors the world over. Well - like Popeye.

It remained there for at least two weeks until Mum ordered that I put the arm in the bath, and down the plughole it went (the tatt, not the arm). It was probably just as well it was a bubblegum transfer, given that a minuscule greeny-blue anchor would, 38 years later, look silly on these now manly forearms.
Back then, of course, tattoos (real ones) were restricted to soldiers, sailors, dockers, hookers, prisoners and druggies. A tattoo marked you, literally and figuratively.

Now let's fast forward to 2002, when my son announced he wanted tattoos of the monster Scylla on one shoulder and her counterpart, Charybdis, on the other. All terribly classical, it must be said, but he was only 12 at the time and studying Greek mythology at primary school.

Today the parlours are studios and the tattoo is here to stay. In more ways than one. Like puppies, the real deal isn't just for Christmas, so it's probably no bad thing that the law makes you wait until you can vote before getting a tatt. By which time, hopefully, your son's not still watching The Simpsons and insisting on a very different Homer.
