I’m considering a third tattoo, maybe something along the lines of the one shown here, from LuckyFish Art (funky Celtic cats); or maybe something completely different. No telling yet. In any case, I’m going to set some sort of personal goal that I have to meet before I go get decorated any further, so we’ll see if it happens.
I’ve certainly seen some designs that I do not want permanently drawn on my body. For example, the following (from Ananova):
Tattoo volunteer to earn his bacon (and eggs)
A tattoo artist has found a volunteer for his next project – a picture of a full English breakfast on a shaved head.
Blane Dickinson, 32, from Wales, will tattoo bacon, sausage, eggs, tomato, beans and toast on the head of Dayne Gilbey.
A knife and fork will be tattooed behind the 19-year-old’s ears, reports the Daily Post.
Mr Dickinson, from Penmaenmawr, Conwy, wants to take his model around UK tattoo competitions.
“It’s such a striking and recognisable dish,” he said, “I like to push the boundaries. I like to make people think.”
Mr Gilbey, who hopes to raise cash for Birmingham City Children’s Hospital, agreed to volunteer after reading about the stunt in a local newspaper.
Dayne, who lives in Coventry and already has four tattoos, said: “I suppose it might hurt a bit, but why not?
“It’s something different and perhaps I can raise some money for my favourite charity at the same time.”
Among other things, can we talk about the whole concept of eating baked beans with breakfast?
And then there’s Glenn Timmerman, who’s willing to “tattoo the name of a company or Web site in exchange for just one ticket to watch his beloved team at Super Bowl XLI”:
Timmermann says he thinks Sharpie or Miller Lite would be the best sponsors, but there are very few limitations, he admits, even hesitating to turn down pornography Web sites.
“I just want to go to the Super Bowl,” Timmermann said, making sure to stress that point above all else.
Timmermann said he’ll proudly display the new tattoo, even promising to walk around shirtless in the warm Miami climate.
Getting a spot in Timmermann’s body isn’t a small deal. He’s made headlines all over the state and has even been mentioned on ESPN for his collection of tattoos.
The Round Lake Beach resident has spent the past 15 months collecting signatures from past and present Bear players all over his body. He then has his local tattoo artist trace over each one.
You’ll notice from his photo that he doesn’t have a lot of bare space left, but it looks as though a big “Miller Lite” logo could fit on his right pec.
Now, let’s talk about pain, endurance, and pure desire to have a tattoo that will induce shock and awe in those who see it. Of course, a penis tattoo isn’t an option for me (and yes, I mean a tattoo on the penis, not a tattoo of a penis — which also wouldn’t be an option for me), but just finding out that there are guys who have this done made me think about similarly painful places that a woman might have a tattoo — and all I have to say is, no, thanks just the same, I’ll pass. Anyway, if you want to see an example, there’s a truly incredible Dragon Penis after the break. Yes, needless to say, there’s nudity.
Guys, I can hear you making little sounds of pain, and see you crossing your legs, and I think about tattooed breasts and sympathize completely.
Exactly what sort of guy has this done? And what sort(s) of people does he sleep with? And what kind of technical details are involved when you’re tattooing a part of the body that features skin that expands and contracts?
My personal tattooing plans are getting smaller. Maybe a toe ring…
