Lee and Angel........ Take it from a fatherly type,.. tattoos are a mistake. Angels looks very nice, but I don't consider most tattoos art, they take away from the beauty of a person, especially a female. I have found that many many people regret getting them as the get older. Sometimes an attractive woman, such as you two, can get away with a small tattoo. But I have seen big, unattractive, women with tattoos all over them, and it is hard to look at. They seem to be wanting to get attention in the only way they can, and it is not the right way.
Take you fathers advice and remain beautiful ladies without anymore tattoos.
If I get another one it will be another bracelet, small and discreet but full of meaning. I am very fond of my tattoo...I've had it for almost 3 years now...no regrets. Tattoos are not about attention...they are about what an individual finds beautiful. I have reminders of who I am and who I was, a spanish gardenia in memory of my mother also because I'm half spanish, a prayer which is also in my favorite play and a song I heard the night I came to believe in God, part of one of my favorite bible verses, irish knotting because I am part irish, and the star of David, which inspires me. He was a massive screwup. It did unspeakably terrible things, and made the worst choices. And yet...he continued to love God. He always brought himself back to God. That inspires me.
All of that in an one inch wide bracelet around my wrist.
See, it's not about attention, it's about meaning.
I'm not sure I knew that Beth, or maybe I forgot, what is your tattoo? lol....Kyle isn't fond of tattoos either, but he does like how small mine is.
I'll have to see if i still have any polaroids of any of the tats i did back in the 90's , i've moved several times since i packed that box so we'll see if i can find it lol ....
as for myself, i have a lizard on my foot, genie on my left arm a huge dragon with a piece of tribal on my back, that i designed myself, i have the photo, just havnt uploaded because, well, its kinda personal lol ... I also have a red zia on my back too
Funny. I don't have any tats. I've seen some beauties though and many more uglies. The funny thing is the difference between the two is often placement and proportion more than it is the design itself. The body is a canvas for tattoos. Where you put it and it's proportions in relation to the body matter. If you put it on your arm, you are decorating a scabbard shaped object that becomes shorter when you bend your elbow. It ought to enhance your arm both with and without the elbow bent. Men's backs make a lovely V shape. Does the tatoo on his back enhance or fight with that? And so on.
People usually get bracelet and anklet tats right. They usually don't get other places on the arm and leg right. Random designs on the back and torso are often just like random graffiti on a wall.
I have seen some really great celtic knots. There is a tree that I really love. I thought about getting it, but as small as I would want it, it wouldn't look right.
LOL...indeed Beth? ;)
Ok, I will show mine. I found some pics on my FB pic's so I collaged them. I made this big because I'm going to delete it. My tattoo looks slightly different because we went back over it. Some of the fine lines just peeled and came right off. I designed it, I know that no one has one just like it.
I have several tattoos. I did not get them for anyone but me and most of them are never seen by anybody else but me. I like the wrist bracelet. BTW: Ankle bracelets are nice but the hurt and bleed a lot if you have skinny ankles. =(
I don't regret it but it could have been done alot better, time has helped it also lol, it was one of my friends first tattoos so .... yeah lol .... most people that see it compliment it, mainly because they havnt seen what it was suppose to look like.
I am pretty crazy, but not as crazy as i was back then lol, we were both just getting into the tattoo buisness so it was more of a buisness arrangement than anything .... doing tattooes is not as easy as alot of people might think :)
as far as modifying it ... nah, wheres the fun in that? plus, I'm satisfied with the discissions I've made in life, including that one. :)
Hmmm...I don't have a tattoo, but if I ever got one it would be this:
I discovered that I don't really have a high tolerance for pain, though, so I think doodling flowers on my freckles with a pen is as close as I'm likely to get...
