I'm just wondering what that camera will look like if she ever gains weight or when she gets to be in her 60's or 70's and her upper arms aren't quite so toned...

So is getting a dragon on your hoo hoo kind of like guys who drive jacked up trucks? It sort of sounds like over-compensation to me. You know, distract 'em and they won't realize how small it is
Not this guy! LOL!
I think I'm gonna have to show DH tonight!

I saw that on Elsie's blog when she posted about it.
I like the designs, but I think the placement of hers (inner arm) is a little strange.
I think the vintage Polaroid route is a good way to go.
Agreed. Interesting and nicely done tattoo. Odd location.

I am assuming by the placement on elsies tattoo she is probably considering getting at least half sleeved. It is an odd place to put one and just leave it at that. She might just be starting at the bottom and working up. And if you have a good artist and depending on your skin type often tattoos won't scab at all. All of mine looked great for a couple days and then the top layer of skin peeled for a week or so, like a sunburn. But there was never any scabbing. Alot of scabbing is usually an artist that really likes to hammer the ink in deep.
Both are really good tattoos. At least done well. At the end of the day most tattoos are stupid, and I have a bunch. Its physical graffiti and its about how they make the owner feel. Thats why I always wonder why anyone else cares. I didn't get them for you, they are for me to look at everyday. Tattoos are something I will never regret, its the only positive thing I have added to my body while having children was wrecking the rest of it LOL.

I am a fan of both girls and love both of their tats. They both picked the perfect thing to symbolize who they are intheir lives right now, and they are beautifully done.
If I had the guts and the $ I would tat both of my arms with tons of stuff!

WOW..can't say I've ever seen a polaroid tat before. That's just weird. Hope she doesn't regret that one in 40 yrs when they no longer exsist. I suppose she can show off her antique tats then though.
In terms of those making comments on what the tats will look like in 40yrs..I'm in the medical field.SO I've seen ALOT of tats on older people, and the only thing that changes is basically the color. The image is still good. They don't actually stretch out, or get distorted. Mainly the colors have faded.

I am on DH's work computer. SO can not google the image.
Someone PLEASE, pretty Please, link the dragon p3nis tatoo!!!
I have nothing about the elise or rachel tat. They are nice, but not my taste. Again it was not done for me, so I am not worried.
If it was done on me... i would like something smaller, and more Celtic like. Or Egyptian like.
But I am still looking for something. 40th is coming and I would like to get it then

I'm not sure why everyone always ALWAYS says "what will it look like when she's 70?" Frankly, who cares. I bet if you live a fun carefree life at 25, you won't be all uptight and prim at 70. Just sayin'
And I can't imagine pretty much anyone not thinking about what their tattoo is going to look like when they are older when they get it. yes, it's going to fade. If you gain weight, it's going to change shape (or lose weight). If you get PG, those dolphins around your belly button are going to stretch.
Life goes on. How many ppl are going to see your naked body when you're 70 anyway? Sheesh. Unclench.
My husband has a tattoo on his forearm he's had over 25 years. Yes it's faded and hard to read (they say that if you lived to 200, your tattoos would eventually disappear). Anyway, it's dedicated to his son that he fought to get custody of, when men didn't. ever. That in itself, makes it still beautiful.
I am going to get our monogram on my wrist. He's going to get a pinupgirl on his upper arm that looks like a hotter version of me lol. After elsie got her polaroid, that got me to thinking, I so badly need to get a canon logo!
I Typo & I don't care

Where is it least painful?
I'm thinking wherever I have the most padding?
I think the least painful is the outside of the arm. Some padding makes it hurt, such as your stomach. It all hurts but you live through it.
I will say that I have found that some are a LOT less annoying. The legs and arms are the most easy by far. Both to care for after and during the tattoo process. If you put a tee shirt and a pair of jeans on me you can't see any of my work (except the back of my neck, daughter's feet). I think that my arms and my legs were the most easy. Neck, lower part of the tummy and ribs are the most annoying. I have 17 tattoos.
That really depends on the person. My skin heals very quickly. If they aren't taken care of properly or hte person is a slow healer it will look wet and scabby longer.
It looks fake to me. I thought tatoo's aren't that "clean" just after getting them.
I think the work on both of those tattoos is beautiful. Great shading! The cat tattoo is a trip. It's funny but come on. ROTFL!! The armpit one with the worst. I"m not googling any dragon. I'm scared. LOL!

I am assuming by the placement on elsies tattoo she is probably considering getting at least half sleeved.
This is what I thought as well. My husband loves the look of sleeves and would be over the moon if I decided to do some. Me, not so much. I like the look of really symmetrical tattoos (like a star on each shoulder or things centered in the middle of the back).
Oh Liz, you *know* you secretly want to! LOL!!!

I'm a symmetry nut too. Its how I ended up with a bird on each sholuder, and when it looked like they were chasing my lady bug in the wrong direction I had to get something in the middle. Not being symetrical really bothered me.
I have a snake on my hip and will be getting another similar sized tattoo on the other hip next. I promised my mom my next few will be covered, after that I might start considering a half sleeve. I think sleeves look best when you plan them out and they are a piece on their own, so I need more time to think about what I really want.
Based on Elsies placement I bet she has most of it planned out already, I bet it will be really neat when its done.

I love my Tattoo, my gramma asked me why??? She just did not get it either, honestly!! I think that it is a wonderful form of self expression. As for being old and wrinkly, Well lets think about it, I AM GONNA GET OLD AND WRINKLY, Tat or Not. I don't think my old wrinkly self is gonna be pole dancin so who cares whether the skin in colored. I won't want to look at my self anyways. Mind you my Tatoos are on my back and I can cover them if I want to. But I do love it!
|Posted: 11/24/2008 1:13:08 AM|
Not this guy! LOL!
LOL I think I'll take your word for it.
Umm, so NOT clenched, so relax. Just because I don't happen to want one on my body when it's wrinkly and 70, doesn't meant you shouldn't cover yourself with them if your little heart so desires. Do whatever you want. Really is no skin off my back. Sheesh. My comment was merely my own observation. Last time I checked I had a right to express it, whether you like it or not.

|Posted: 11/24/2008 6:36:06 AM|not sure if this has been brought up yet, cuz i haven't read all the posts..
much worse (IMO) than a wee-wee tattoo is a hoo-ha tattoo. i saw one in an email forward where the woman had a devil/dragon like face tattooed down there, and the..um..parts that stuck out a little were the tongue, and the ..lips..were lips. can you even IMAGINE teh pain?! i bet you could find it if you googled..i remember it too well to try.
to the person wondering where it hurts least, try the back of your shoulder! that's where i got my first, and it went great. when they colored it, i actually started laughing because i had been dreading it so much and it hardly was irritating.
i love my tatoos! i'm too chicken to get any really visable ones though. all mine are in places that if the situation demanded, i could wear clothing to cover them up. that said, i would LOVE to get 1/2 sleeves! i wish i was a tat artist so i could have the cred required to pull them off...

|Posted: 11/24/2008 6:57:07 AM|Okay, googled the dragon P and all I can say is OUCH. I mean what kind of guy does that? Anyone who can go through that much pain kind of scares me...plus does he have a piercing there too?
I got my first tattoo this summer. It was a memorial to a freind that passed because of cancer. I worried at first about putting something permanent on my body, but my dh convinced me by saying, I pierced my ears, put on weight and at my age, I will have lived longer without one than I probably will with one....now I am addicted and I really want another one.
I like the polaroid one, but I think it is in a weird spot and a little big.
|Posted: 11/24/2008 9:45:34 AM|
You know what would bother me? The sewing machine appears to be backwards. That's what would irritate me, if I got a permanent image scarred into my body and it was wrong. Unless there are other handed sewing machines, but I've only seen ones where they are the mirror image of that red velvet one...although it is a gorgeous image, I hate when things are just reversed because people couldn't bother to look it up, e.g. peoples hands on an instrument, or writing of foreign characters, e.g. chinese or japanese.
|Posted: 11/24/2008 10:08:46 AM|I loooove tattoos!! I have one little strawberry on my foot about an inch from my toes and an inch from the outside of my foot. I really want at least 2 or 3 more tattoos in the near future. They way I see it is the parts of my body that I am getting them in wont be wrinkly until im at least 60 and when it gets to that time, I will be the only one seeing them. I wont care... I wont get anything that I will be ashamed of when I am old either. The camera is cute but I dont know about the sewing machine... To each his own

If I were going to get a camera tat I'd definitely go the vintage route.
Elsie seems very 'vintagy' herself anyway. I think it's a perfect fit for her and it's a beautiful tattoo, as is her friends....

I'm a fan of Elsie's but not of tattoo's. Especially when its a big one and you can't really hide it if you decide to one day. Winter yes, but not in the summer. I always figure one day you'll regret marking your body like that and you can't really undo it. Plus its not attractive.
