I'm starting this to share experiences about tattoos or anything about them like why you have the tattoo, what inspired you to get it, even some designs you'd love to get in the future etc.

Here is my only one:

Image

It's my beloved goat. I got it about a year and a half ago and what inspired me to get it was my love of metal really especially Black Metal.

I absolutely loved the pain too, it was a bit uncomfortable at first but as I caught the train home with it wrapped in glad wrap, it was this sensational addictive pain which made me want to get more.

It will for sure not be my first and last, when I get some proper income and I will get more because I have a few designs I'd love to get.


So let's share what tattoos you guys have!

Yeah I should stop posting pics of my tattoo, so here's a link. Bal-Sagoth are a big thing to me, and while their newest is not my favorite by any means, the cover was more practical to get done than the other covers.

I don't have any pictures of mine but I have a turisaz rune on my left wrist, and wolf hook on my right, a demonic sigil(amduscias) on my right forearm and the Celtic Frost septagram on my left forearm. Celtic Frost aren't even a big deal to me compared to other bands but it still looks cool.

I really want to get the CF septagram down my back in a huge piece! Who knows, maybe that'll be my next tattoo.

I don't have any tattoos because I change my mind like I change my underwear. Also the work filter blocks the image, but I LOVE goats and a goat is one of two motifs I never tire of (the other being spades, as in the card suit). I am also a Capricorn, so were I to get something goat related, I could justify it to my Southern Baptist relatives by saying it's an innocuous homage to my zodiac sign.

I have no interest in getting another tattoo than the one I got when I was twenty because now EVERYONE it seems has tats and therefore it's too trendy and plus they will look like complete shit on my wrinkled skin when or if I should reach decrepitude. Or at least i wouldn't get one where it's more visible.

Honestly if you're old enough for your skin to be so wrinkled that your tattoo isn't discernible you're probably going to be past the point of caring how you look.

I also don't see the insane trendy factor of tattoos right now as a reason not to get them. If a tattoo really means enough to you to have it permanently put on your body I don't see how a bunch of other people having shitty meaningless tattoos would cheapen yours. If you got it to be exclusive and rebellious however, I could see where the overwhelming popularity might get to you.

I don't have any tattoos and probably never will. As cliche as it sounds I'd love to have "Only Death is Real" down the inside of my forearm. I know that it was just a ridiculous statement made by a near-adolescent but I still think theres a very powerful unavoidable truth to the statement. It's certainly one of the few things you can count on no matter who you are. But, I'm a pussy and realize that I'm eventually going to have to get some sort of boring corporate job and I don't want to wear long sleeves every fucking day.

I'm just a little old-fashioned in that sense I guess. 25 years ago, generally most people who had many tats were either sailors or bikers. Now, it's no big deal. I have nothing against tattoos mind you but I would only get one if it was something that I felt I absolutely had to have and it was done by a highly regarded artist which would be too expensive to be worth it to me anyhow.

At the moment I don't have any. I've been holding off getting one mostly due to the fact that there are no decent shops in the area.

Plus a convention is coming through during May next year (if it's anything like the one last year, there will be some brilliant artists attending), so I figured I'd scrape together a bunch of cash and get a few done during that time. I've had my mind made up on several designs since I was 15 years old, and will probably get all of them done at once.

Hope I haven't posted these on this site yet. Most of these pictures were taken right after they were done, so there's still redness and bruising.

Image

Yep, that's the alien thing on the cover of the newest Devourment album :P

Image

Anyone notice the HR Giger influence?

Image

^^^ haha I swear that's my chest and not my ass :D

Image

Sure, I love Destruction and that's one of my favorite albums, but that's not why I got it. Tattoos don't really have meaning to me, I just want ones that look cool. Guess I'm not that poetic :/

I want to get the rest of the space on my other arm covered hopefully next year. I also want neck tattoos but I'm not sure if I should do that before I have a career. After that, I doubt I'll get anything else. I've never been too big on leg tattoos.

:lol:

Thanks for clearing that up for us. The shoulder/chest work is cool mate, some nice interwoven skull themes, and shading.

Not stamped yet, but it's only a matter of time......and money.

Holy fuck that's a cool skull pyro, I have that cd too it looks just right. Are you sticking with black for the shoulder piece or are you getting different colors done?

Thanks man. I'm sticking with black and grey. Color, when done correctly, is awesome, but colors generally fade quicker and, unless you already have the complete idea for an entire sleeve, it's not a good idea to use colors. I've seen too many color tattoos that clash badly with each other so I'm just avoiding them altogether.

That's got to be the most random place for a tattoo like that.

Yeah, I'd picture it more as a tramp stamp. :P

Once I get some cash flow, and a little more toned, I'm gunna get a chest/shoulder/back/arm half-sleeve. I'd go full-sleeve, but I'd rather not lower my chances any more at finding a job; that's hard enough already.

Still trying to think of designs though...

i love this logo.

great ink work, pyroleprechaun. the chest/sleeve is awesome, but that Destruction tat is the real winner.

here's mine, can't flip it since it's not my pic: http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.c ... D=69672948

this was right after it was done. it's been exactly 3 months to date since i had my initial inking done, but i had the tat touched up about 3 weeks ago. naturally, the color has now set in and faded some, but it still looks great.

Heres my Mjolnir tattoo I got done last summer. Its faded a lot because of football, so I think I need to get it touched up. Theres several pictures because I used a cell phone camera to take the pictures.

Next one I plan on getting is something like the album artwork of In the Nightshade Eclipse from my elbow to my shoulder.

I want to get Mjolnir on my inner forearm. Above it I want a rune inscription that says "Viking Blood Runs Through These Veins".

Perhaps using consummate V's, give him some teeth, spinities and angry eyebrows. Then you can add smoke or fire, or maybe some wings, you know if he's a wing-a-ling dragon. Then put a beefy arm on him for good measure, which'd look really good, coming out of the back of his neck there

BURNINATED! :headbang:
