Do you have any? Nope
Do you want to get a tattoo but don't have one yet (or piercing etc.)? Would love to get a tattoo on my back
Do you have already something in mind? Would probably get the name or logo of my favorite band tattooed
Are you familiar with brandings? Yes Do you have those? No, I think they're barbaric and would probably hurt a lot.

Wonder how I didn't comment on this earlier. :silly:

My piercer told me that in fact doing a branding/scar hurts less then a tattoo. I figure she knows when she has both and she isn't the type that tells you that \"it doesn't hurt at all\" and all that nonsense.

Personally, the problem I have with scarification is that I can't really stomach watching the process. Somehow watching an other person bleed makes me feel nauseous. I'm not put off by a bit of blood, but some scar designs, well people, bleed a lot... :huh: Ok, that is more the reason I can't see myself getting one.

On other people I like them, but only if it's really obvious the scaring was intentional and has some artistic quality. I saw some brandings on the net which look more like someone butchered the person not that it's art. :S

But the reason I came to this topic is becasue I heard on the radio how some Dutch girl tattooed the profile photos of all her facebook friends on her arm. I think some 10 of my FB friends reposted that piece of news :silly: Here's an article: news.yahoo.com/s/digitaltrends/20110607/...llherfacebookfriends

I can't really understand why that news is something big. People all around the world are getting 'weird' tattoo designs. I heard of worse. :pinch:

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

:P Hm. I don't have an issue with scarring, but personally if I were to have anything done, it'd be tattooed on, just because I think ink is a bit more aesthetically pleasing/obvious.

That social tattoo idea is just..Argh. Just looking at my FB friends' profile pictures - It'd be a bad idea. Friends of mine tend to stick up stupid photos!

And - Curious now that you've said you've heard of worse. :silly:

haha :P

I took \"worse\" in the broadest sense and unfortunately, I also *saw* worse. Example neo-nazis and their swastikas, or here Ustaša symbols etc... I can't really stand those tattoos.

I can somehow understand the tattoo artists who agree to ink such tattoos. I can imagine that in their line of work they surely had other customers who wanted some design tattooed which they thought wasn't good in some way, but they did it anyway becasue the customer insisted and they have to live from something...

Therefore, a facebook tattoo will just make me blink once or rise an eyebrow, while with the others mentioned I'm pretty much disgusted with.

The technically/artistically badly executed tattoos that I see, make me just sorry for the people who walk around with those, but if they wanted to, they could always get a cover-up done by a decent artist...

Ahh right..Didn't think people would ever get such tattoos..

I agree with the poorly done tattoos though - That's a reason I'd be reluctant to get one that isn't a relatively clean and simple black design (tends to be some coloured tattoos that don't come out so well from what I've seen)..Though I have seen even plain black designs go badly. Some end up looking like a design's just been drawn on with a pen or something..
