It'll be fine. It's something that's been in the works for a while now...I'm just being patient about the whole thing.

I was thinking of getting a chest-piece of a templar knight and a saracen warrior shaking hands and smiling. Thoughts?

Would they be tight-lipped smiles or big, toothy grins?

I'm considering getting the symbol on the rereleased edition of Solefald's "Neonism," probably on my back/shoulder.

http://www.cmdistro.com/images/xlarge/30298.jpg

It's my favorite album by my favorite band- And the band itself has had a very significant influence on my academic, musical and writing pursuits. It's certainly now very elaborate, but I think there's something elegant in its simplicity.

My only concern: Do you think people would mistake that for a swastika/fascist symbol from a distance?

No, but people might ask you why you're so enthusiastic about recycling.

I plan on getting Morbid Angel's blasphegram symbol on my left arm and the pentagram pendant I wear tattooed around my neck and on my chest. The reason I'm getting the blasphegram on my left arm is to symbolize the left hand path.

It's the word "blasphegram". It's a ridiculous word, but it's what MA called it.

God damnit, and that's the only tattoo I'd ever be interested in too. :lol: Ah well, I think I'll go ahead anyway since it probably won't be seen in public that often.

Hello. I've never had any tattoo before, and am planning to do it just now (very excited about it), with a howling wolf on my right arm, by a tremendous artist from here where I live. Do any of you have any suggestions, on images that could be used as guidelines and inspirations for the imagery to be evoken by my 'wolf'? I'm thinking about something really wintery, melancholic and "Agallochian", maybe, for the general feel. Moonsorrow too, would be a reference, in a imagetic, immaterial way to the general thing. I'd greatly appreciate all the help - and references - I could get.

I'm bumping this because I've decided to get a tattoo and I need some "inspiration" from you guys. I just didn't want to start a new thread when this one was recently updated...

Obviously, I want something "metal". I'm going to just start on one of my upper arms for now because I'm not sure how my current boss would feel about having tattoos exposed at work (I work in landscaping); I'd like to be able to cover up my ink whenever I need to. I'm drawn more to pieces that are done entirely in black ink or have very little other color. There's nothing in particular that I feel the need to "express". I just want something that looks rather raw.

So I guess what I'm trying to get at is whether or not you guys think I've put enough consideration into this to go in and talk to a tattoo artist. I feel like most other people know exactly what they want before they even walk into a tattoo shop. I have a very general idea of the style I like but nothing specific in mind.

EDIT: I'm in the Akron/Canton/Cleveland area if any of you have any suggestions for tattoo artists around here.

If you're just landscaping, then it shouldn't matter. The usual bias' against tats are going to be either personal (by the boss) or service based (customers).

If you are just copying a design from off the internet then, that is easy to just walk in with. I have one where I had the general idea, so I gave him that, the concept, and some of the flourishes I wanted. However that was all in speech, I let him come up with the design and he blew away what I had in my head. Which is how good tattoo artists should be because I am not an artist. They should be there to help bring your ideas to life, I feel.

Well lacking consideration hasn't stopped people before man. Google stupid/funny tattoos and you'll see. You'll have to live with it for the rest of your life, so it is all on you to decide. As for the design I can't really throw anything at you, based off 'wanting something raw.' lol

Are you sure you want a tattoo? If you're sure, then you're ready. If you're not, then you aren't.

You know it's there for the rest of your life, right? Yes? Good. You have to get it right the first time, so make sure you have a good artist. Good work ain't cheap, cheap work ain't good. If you need to wait a year to save up enough money to pay a good artist, it's worth it for the decades it'll be there.

If you're not sure exactly what you want but know you want a tattoo, find an artist whose style you like and ask them to design something - good artists not only put the ink into your skin, they draw up good designs with regard to the way the art form works, and a lot of them are fucking awesome artists in general.

One more piece of advice, if you work in landscaping, don't get tattooed during a season when you'll be doing a lot of dirty work, go for the winter. It's an open wound and you don't want to be around a lot of dirt until it's healed.

I knew a guy who literally doodled on himself with a tattoo gun. That's pretty short-range thinking ... There are only so many things you can do with them once they're there (cover them, incorporate them, touch them up ..). It depends on you and what kind of vision you have for yourself in the future. There's always the black bar to redact it. Or the way of Ashur.

Ask your boss. Besides, you should probably keep it out of the sun anyhow. Ask the artist and do care research on the webz. Follow the care instructions, otherwise fail/infection.

Well, there's a pentagram; that's self-explanatory. Not sure about the design beside it.

It is probably a Mike Tyson inspired tattoo. Although, the design looks pretty random. Tyson's is anything but random, however, so you might want to look at the meaning behind Tyson's instead?

It's nothing to worry about unless you're a total idiot about it, I've had to do some crazy shit with fresh ink and all mine healed up fine...you just have to be smart. Keep dirt out of it, clothes over it and keep it lubed up while it's super fresh...strong sunscreen on it after that.

Yeah unless your directly going to rub dirt into it, it should be fine, just keep it covered and keep tattoo ointment on it

When you start seeing 60 year old women with fresh barbed wire tattoos around their arms you know the trend has gone too far.

^ Since when were tattoos age exclusive?

The artist I have been talking too is about in her 70's, and she's one of the best in town. As long as you feel for the tattoo and you genuinely like it and you're proud of it, all of the other crap doesn't matter.

Also, to the guy getting the Morbid Angel Blasphegram, great idea. That thing looks evil!

So, my wife and I booked Carlos from the Mighty Black Shadows Tattoos a month ago. This guy has made tattoos to many well known extreme metal musicians as you might check his facebook page.

Yesterday she got her tattoo (and I'm getting mine tomorrow); this one is a freehand:

I asked him to make a lovecraftian demon in my arm, which might end to be the whole arm later this year when he comes back. Very funny and nice guy; incredibly fast for tattooing and the quality is simply amazing. So good that I'm planning to cover up with other arm with another tattoo of him later.

(For the Swedish ones interested, Carlos will be here:)

Saw this thread when it got bumped. Man, you guys have some amazing and awesome tats!

No tattoos myself; I've been thinking about them for years but just never committed to anything. I might eventually, but right now I'm more interested in piercings and flesh hooks. Maybe once I'm past my flesh hook phase I'll get something to incorporate the scars.

My dad was actually the first person in the family to get tattoos last summer at the age of 62 (got an eagle to commemorate his military service and my name/birthday over his heart). Mom took a while to calm down, though that might have been because he kept it a secret and didn't tell her about it for a couple weeks. So at least if I decide to get inked the precedent has already been set. :lol:

Going to get this on my right shoulder http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/e ... _eagle.jpg
I don't care if people think it's nazi or white supremacist or whatever. I want this, I won't let other people's ignorance stop me, and besides, it's not like I'm doing it right in my forehead (and that would be pretty fucking awesome)
and then this one on my left shoulder http://i44.tinypic.com/25aop5c.jpg
that's a band, so no worries

they are easy to do, simple designs, and I never expose my shoulders in public, so I think I'm going to be just fine on the "being employable" thing

here's my only tat

Image

it took a really long time and was really expensive, so for my next one I've decided to just do an only black outline type, based on this shochu, but instead of the normal label, I would get a haiku by one of my favorite old japanese poets Matsuo Basho

Image

the problem will be finding someone to write the haiku in soushotai (japanese cursive) but the haiku is 野ざらしを心に風のしむ身かな for those of you who read it. I can't write it myself because I have no idea how to go about cursive calligraphy. I might ask the tattoo artist as he's a pretty talented guy, but still I feel like writing in soushotai is kind of a specialty thing I might have to contract some sort of calligrapher to write it like 20 times and I can pick the one I like best.

also I haven't ever drank that shochu so I have to probably order it online and make sure it doesn't suck. Obviously I don't want the tatt BECAUSE of the alcohol connotation, rather I just think the logo looks cool and is pertinent to the haiku, but it would suck to get that tattooed and then find out that the booze with the same logo is awful tasting.

that flower tattoo is a real cool one!

Will be getting one within a few months, assuming hte missus ok's it. One on my arm: t-rex (from dinosaur comics) highfiving James Hetfield circa '89 while Jesus looks on approvingly. The wife's been delaying it for ages but after a year I'm still super keen on the idea, so it'll happen! I also like the idea of getting some sort of christian socialist tattoo, that'd be real cool but I'm not sure I'm ready for a SUPER SERIOUS design. Maybe when I'm 30.
