Default Show your tattoos

went to hollywood this weekend and picked up a cool souvenir. The stars are for my family -- the big, gold one for me (favorite color), blue one for my girl (her fav color) and the pink one for my daughter (her fav color). Took about an hour and i am pumped.

enjoy.

Even though I'm not a big fan of tattoos, I think the sentiment is sweet.

not too much pain in most places. Definitely you can handle it -- this was my first and we took no breaks -- just straight through. In fact, the color went on immediately after the black. The outer arm is far more tough than the tender under-arm that i placed mine on. Even still, i only winced where it got close to the joint on my wrist, my vein on my wrist and where the blue star started wrapping around the other side of my arm.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy, as my daughter says. I love it -- cant wait for my next one. Now that i know what to expect (the pain is FAR less than you think), i am excited!!! I am only going to ink my left arm. My right arm will remain untouched. I plan on all my future tats having meaning as well.... you will never regret putting something on your body that means something to you. At least i dont think. I waited 38 years for my first.... do it while you can do it. Live life with no regrets!

thanks for your kind words.

Sweet tattoo man. You look like the kind of guy that I wouldn't want to piss off haha. Do you have any other ones? I'm getting a shamrock on my chest in a month.

I'm kinda jealous. Both of my sons have lots of ink, and I still haven't had my first tat yet.

Edit: actually it's both of my sons, both of my step-daughters, my wife, my sister, and my step-dad. Gah, I feel so left out!

My sax player just got a sax and some ska checkers on his upper armlast week. He's happy with them. Personally I'm not interested in tats. Too permanent for me.

Tattoos are indeed very addictive... I now have 6. I'm 21 and started the week after my 18th birthday. All of mine mean something to me too, and I don't regret them at all. Here are 2 of them on my right leg.

thanks for your comments. Tats are a personal thing -- to comment on them like you would critique a drum solo is pointless -- they are not objective, but rather very subjective. I am not the type of guy to care what people think -- unless they are friends. I consider many of you friends of sorts (db, larlev, etc) -- and thus i was sharing something personal with friends, albeit in a public forum.

thanks for comments from my forum friends -- you know who you are.

Great tat Elvis.

I didn't get my first tat until I was 34.

I got a picture of my wife put on my right shoulder. Took about 3 hours to complete. It hurt, but not unbearably.

I also got the names of my daughters on my left shoulder. I left room for their portraits. I have been waiting for the "perfect" picture of them. I finally have one. Now, I just need to obtain the $500 to have that done.

Once you get one, you are always tempted to get more. I have almost gotten more on a whim, but promised my girls that I would get their portraits done first.

I will take pictures of mine and post them tonight if possible.

For the record, the Superkick 2 is amazing with the Regulator ported head. Each bass drum sounds like a f@(%&$* cannon! Absolutely unbelieveable!

Definitely a noticable difference than with the stock tama reso head.

You should check one out!

oh yeah -- i have had that combo on an old tama rockstar and it proved fantastic results on that... i can imagine how good the starclassic sounds with it. I think i will go back to the regulator when i change out the head. Glad you like it. :)

i personally am not a fan of tats beneath hair -- it gets in the way of the art work..... so i may be looking at shaving my arms if i get more.

Yeah man, those tattoos are amazing!!

What do you think of these pictures? I will be getting one of these..




As you can see, I really want an irish tattoo to show my heritage. I already have a canadian tattoo planned out in a couple of months. I love both of these and am leaning towards the shield, which is the shield for the irish police.

i like the shield. The colors and simple style i think would make a great tattoo. Thats one reason i went with the stars -- i tend to think that more complex tattoos often look like a bruise from a short distance.

go for the shield

OK here is my ex-wife's portrait(the arm tat obviously).......no really

and a little pain I suffered about 12 years ago...I also have an ankh on my left arm, also dead center on my neck/back I have my sun sign......so, I was trying to incorporate, birth, death, eternal life...the full circle of life...

I had a lot of plans for 3/4 sleeves....with kids now just haven't been able to do it

Oh and that nice little 6" scar is the result from my nice little gallbladder almost bursting on me.....it was fun

Here's the tattoo that I'm considering, and a quick-and-dirty photoshop of its rough size and placement (not my back in the pic, obviously). It's a version of the chant "Om mani padme hum" in the Tibetan script, which cannot be literally translated but means something along the lines of "meditation, patience, discipline, wisdom, generosity, diligence."
