Man, my arms isn't finished, needs another 8 hours of work to it before i can think of starting on the next one, but i love it, as long as it all flows and isn't patchwork, it's all good!I absolutely agree. I want tats, but I don't one or two - I'd want a whole fucking sleeve. It looks absolutely fantastic, but it is a LOT of work. I know what I want done for one tattoo, and that took me about a year to be certain I didn't hate it now. But a sleeve has to have a low more conceptual work. I don;'t want one big tattoo...I want lots of interweaving ones.
Names, or slogans, no way. I mean, just think of all the hXc kids now working in maccy D's with vegan tattooed across their backs. Ideals change.As for tattooing other peoples names on you, I think its even more stupid than tattooing 'Chicken Supreme' in botchy chinese that you think is 'beautiful wings' or whatever. I don't understand why people would want someone else's name on them. If you HAD to do it, I'd rather people wrapped it up in symbolism. My tattooist friend has a series of three dots on his wrist for his ex, and another set of dots behind each of his ears for his parents. They are just dots, but they mean something to him. And if people think "why do that? Then no one can see what they mean" then they are completely missing the point. Tattoos are all about meaning and stories, and I can't stand people who won;t see that.
