What do the kids today all say? Epic fail!!

I see "your" and "you're" confused all over these days. From Drummerworld to the mainstream press by supposedly educated journalists no less. I'd hate to have some muppet confuse the two whilst inking my back, but in a generations time no-one will know the difference anyway, so it seems.

But I've NEVER seen Jimi confused for Marley before. The mind boggles!

OMG!! I didn't notice that!! okay okay (breathe Mike, breathe).... okay. So do you guys think I should ink Marley's face over Hendrix's, or should I just redo the Marley letters to say Hendrix? Soooo hard to decide. Which guy do you guys like better? Who's the better singer? Maybe I should buy their records and see who I like better... prolly easier to take a poll, though... Aarghh!

Just draw a line through Bob Marley and put Jimmy Hendrix under it.

You trying them out for yourself runs against the spirit of all reputable drum forums. Why would you educate yourself when you can get the opinions of guys you've neither met, nor understand the playing experiences that have had them form their given preferences?

Nope, your last thought is your best thought........the BEST approach is to take a poll and seek the opinions of strangers, by asking "who is best, Hendrix versus Marley?"......regardless of their level of experience, bias, or working knowledge! :-)

I think you should label it Sugar Ray Leonard and call it a draw.

While we're at grammar... Native speakers do mix up quite a number of things. It's all around this forum!

"it's" vs. "its"... "it's" = "it is" <-> "its" = possessive pronoun (like "his", "her")
"your" vs. "you're" -> Now that's a homophone meaning the pronunciation is the same, you can't tell the spelling just by hearing, you have to know the context.

"then" vs. "than" (there is a difference in pronunciation but hey, obviously some don't care.)

And basically, it's "whether", not "if" in sentences like "I don't know whether...", but hey, language is an evolving beast so what was wrong some time (from the grammar purists' point of view) might be correct a few years/decades later.

I'm not to teach anybody, just trying to get some of you a bit more aware. As to tattoos... I don't have any, don't need any. Never will have/need. But still better than smoking (which I also don't need, never needed).

Mad About Drums,
ok... since you've asked - here's my view:

WTF??? ;-)

PS: I've forgot one thing - "mouvement" -> "movement"...
Is it you doing so? Haha. Forgive me.

Also... "rediculous" -> "ridiculous"
"defiantly" -> "definitely"... Geez, one could compile a whole dictionary. Now it's time for me to shut up in this thread. No tattoo... no talking here.

Nah!!! You just want to add dreadlocks to Jimi's hair + a wolly hat, that will do the trick nicely, and be cleaner looking IMO. ;-))

OK Arky, a little background info from before you were a member...Anytime you see this word "rediculous", it's probably meant as a D'World inside joke, referencing...I forget who it is now. Could it have been Tommycanuhearme? Anyway, this person unknowingly misspelled the word and it has been a cult hit around here ever since. So enter that word in the DW dictionary. Along with the phrase "going to the coast" and the acronym "PEWFLADCC". Perhaps my own term "butt strap" would qualify. OK shameless promotion, I do get a kick from seeing it thrown around here lol.

Glad you cleared that up Larry. I was going to start calling my snare wires a buttstrap from now on.

Thought I had stumbled on some secret insider term that would've instantly gained me some drummer street cred when I started throwing it around the drum shop.

Yea, no don't throw it around the drum shop just yet, the civilian drumming community isn't ready for that yet I don't think. It's a DW thing ;) Kinda like knowing the secret handshake, shhh! Technically the butt strap is the strap that goes from your snare wire to the butt plate. Or conversely it could be used as a punishment device for unruly kids.

Skull is from one snare drum, and sticks crosses behind. Not best possible photo but I think you understand it = )

Haha... guy I worked with is covered (including his neck) with ink--very good work, nonetheless. But yea, he got laid off recently. A few days later he posted pictures on facebook of him getting a new tattoo. :p

I have one, which covers the outside of my thigh. Not drum-related, however.

Default Re: Drum Tattoos?

I want to get a tattoo on my arm that would react and look cool while I am drumming. I've been looking through optical illusions and patterns but would love it if anyone here had some ideas. I skinny and kind of cut so I want something across my triceps/biceps on my right arm so it moves while I'm playing time. We use our bodies to make our art, so why not dress em up in some art that adds to our show.

On my man parts, I have a tattoo of a 4 piece bop kit.

When I see a pic of Monique, it morphs into Sticks' White Arctic Monster kit lol.

I can't put up a pic here, the file size is too big :)

I have 2 drum-related tattoos, both on my left arm sleeve tattoo.

They are both tributes to my two biggest influences in music and percussion. I prefer subtlety over obvious. If you're in the know, you know ;)

Just wondering...does anyone think it's the Olympic Rings or the Audi symbol? Only 1 person has known that it's John Bonham. *sigh* I don't want to live on this planet anymore!!! Haha!

Nope, never. I guess those people can't count (Olympic logo = 5 rings, Audi = 4 rings).

A few people asked me if it symbolized the Trinity, but I tell them I'm atheist.

I'm thinking no one has asked if it's the Trinity because they know I'm atheist :-D

I'm almost tempted to have "JOHN BONHAM" written underneath....but I was going for subtle!

Wow, great minds really do think alike :)

Personally, the tattoo is for me, and I know what it is. I wouldn't get his name on there (for me, anyway). I kind of like the symbolism without a blatant explanation!

Like I said, if you're in the know.... :)

My other drummer tattoo is a little more difficult to figure out, and gets a lot of questions. When I tell people that the two tattoos are "symbols of my favorite drummers", I get a lot of weird looks.

I shortly entertained the idea of getting something like those silly barbed-wire around your arm deals... Only I was going to have them draw some snare wires around my arm.

Yes, I was drunk. It would have to be a very good tattoo in order to even tell what it is.

Want a tattoo you'll remember?

Get the three permanent "targets" you get after radiation treatment for prostate cancer.

Sorry, I can't show 'em...
