Quote from: ~*CherryRed*~ on November 06, 2007, 22:48:52To be inked or not to be inked - that is the question!For me, Tattoo's were always going to happen. I'm an arty farty type person and at school I was always drawing on my arms/legs any exposed body area... so it was a natural thing for me to go all the way when I became of age! Also I really 'like' people that get tattoo'd. I like to see what they have and ask why - makes for interseting conversation at times! And it's also like being a part of something, you have something in common with that person. 8)I like to see that the tradition of tattooing continues. The Christians almost succeeded in their effort to have the practice wiped of the face of the earth... and as I'm not religious in any form, to me it's "sticking it to the MAN" (as the saying goes). Hmm, I'm not intending to offend anyone here either I want to say.Someone mentioned awhile back in here, that they thought it was silly having Robert Smith tattoo'd on your body... I forget the exact words used. I want to say here that I have Robert one one side, and Sid Vicious on the other. They represent the two sides of my personality. A Ying & Yang type thing I guess! And even at the age of (nearly) 34... it still applies. Everyone is different, and what works for me definately won't work for others. It's so cool to go to an outdoor music festival and see all the artwork on peoples bodies! Living and breathing art... we're all on the same wave length, but so original in our way of expressing it. I have often chatted to complete strangers about their artwork, and even made some friends that way! It's a great way to strike up a conversation. And unless the person your chatting to is a complete wanker, they will generally be really nice and chat to you about their work and experience.I intend to have a load more work done when the budget allows. It is very true that once you get one, you never stop at that one! - your always thinking of the next one you'd like to have. My fella is covered in them, and some of his tattoo's are really impressive I have to say! And one last thing (and then I'm done on this topic for ever). I actually won "best realistic" for my Robert Smith tattoo in 2006 at a Tattoo Show I went to! So to the person that said they thought my Robert looked like Sugar Ray... hmm!
