    Jim Brockmire so as not to clog up the other thread and in case you’re wondering ta Blue Jesus tattoo is basically a Jesus/religion is dead tattoo. It is blue to show him as being dead.

    It’s an atheist thing. It was during my nietzsche stage. I was a college kid who knew everything. I am glad I didn’t get it

    Can you get a fake tattoo to see how it would look for a while before really getting it or is that some pussy shit

    You’d have to be able to find an artist to draw it on you. You’d end up spending a lot more than you would want. Best thing is maybe having someone photoshop. My artist did that with my neck so I could see what it would look like. But, I’ve been working with this Kat for close to 20 years. An artist you don’t know might not be willing to do it . Honestly if you’re not sure don’t get anything done.

    I don't have any and just kinda wanted to see how it would look. I assume it's weird when you first get one and keep noticing it every time you look down

    just to get the ball rolling, feel free to shit on any of these, but things I thought about getting some for my kids

    - their footprints from their hospital newborn sheet (this is one I've always wanted somewhere)
    - their names in something creative like morse code (i have a C in morse on my ring finger as a wedding band)
    - if you wanted animals, look up their birth months and see what animals are their zodiac sign. Could have a design made of the two animals, one for each of the girls

    Have an appointment for a quarter sleeve (artist’s words) on Saturday. Pretty excited.

    On another note, what do you all usually tip? I think I’ve over tipped the last couple of times, but I’d rather do that than under tip.

    I throw in an extra 20-40 on top of what I pay. That usually works out to about 15-20% it is weird when I first started getting work tips weren’t expected.

    Made my appointment for the other side of my neck. I am going to finish my back and do my ribs or calves and I’ll be done.

    I was never thinking pirate ship, more of a play on a couple of lines from a couple of Jason Isbell songs, but I don’t hate the idea of a pirate ship either

    ‘O logos ein agape’ in Greek script on my inner forearm. I’ve almost pulled the trigger on it a few times but it’s feeling like the right time.

    It’s a play on John 1:1 that I’d borrow from Dan Simmons, a sci-fi author. The idea being that the source of god (‘the word’ or knowledge) is compassion for one’s fellow man.

    :justsayin:


    Yeah it was a bad college tattoo choice. I was itching for one in that spot, and somehow ended up with that quote. Now all is saved with the cover up.



    Also, bottom quote is, " Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance"
