Piercings ? Tattoos ??
#1
Just idly curious - does anybody have any piercings and/or tattoos and, if so, what are they ?

... and if not, have you considered any and, if so, what/where would they be ??

I don't have any, but I always thought it would be pretty cool to work out what the Chinese Character for "Love" is, and then stylistically alter it to remove 1/2 the brushstrokes, to make two individual characters which, when combined, would equate to the completed "Love" character. That way I could have one half of the brushstrokes on me (probs on my left shoulder on the outside), and my partner could have the other half on him (I guess on his right shoulder) ...

... in this way, we would be a complete love when together, and only half a love when apart ...

... I figured it would be romantic, but always at the back of my mind there's this little voice saying "Yes Shadow, GREAT idea but ... what if half the Chinese Character for "Love" is the Chinese Character for "Triads are my Bitches" or something REALLY clever like that ???"

I know somebody that thought they'd picked the Chinese Character for "Strength", but instead it was "This Way Up" !!! So I'm a TAD skeptical :redface:.

!?!?! Shadow !?!?!

SWEET dude ! That's a REALLY impressive tatt !!

What's your family crest if you don't mind my asking ?

Ours is three boars' heads (hardly awe-inspiring).

!?!?! Shadow !?!?!

I have an Ouroborus tattoo on my right upper arm, pretty much in the same spot as wouldlikemuscle's tiger is.
And yes, for anyone who may ask, it is from Fullmetal Alchemist. My friend and I both got it (his idea I might add).

Wouldlikemuscle,

Hot damn !!!!! Now I feel even worse !! Lol2.

I'm going to ask my mum to re-research our coat of arms and, if she doesn't think it's kickass enough, to forge the docs to MAKE it kickass ...

... maybe a penguin with a rocket launcher or something ... an original mural from the Battle of Hastings that has, until this time, been lost ... Confusedmile:.

:biggrin:.

XRIMO,

I just had to look that up :redface:, but now I'm with you - cool tatt dude !! :biggrin:. Did you get it to symbolise the strength of your friendship ?

!?!?! Shadow !?!?!

It symbolizes a lot of things. My friend and I are 'ouroborus brothers' now Big Grin
But the ouroborus is also a Greek myth, the serpent that eats its own tail. So it symbolizes my area of study.
The ouroborus itself is a symbol of immortality.
And it also symbolizes my geekiness, considering I got the design and idea from an anime Wink

I don't see anything geeky about it to be honest - it's something you like, and isn't it better to adorn your body with that, than something you think other people will think is cool just to fit in ?? Confusedmile:.

I guess it perhaps COULD extend to Ragnarok in the Nordic Myths too ... with the Midgard Serpent that gnaws eternally at the roots of the Yggdrasil Tree kinda devouring its own tail to symbolise its eternal hunger ??

But I appreciate that the symbol itself is generally more one of the cycle of life, death and rebirth ??

I think ? Anyway ?? Maybe ??? Confusedmile:.

!?!?! Shadow !?!?!

EDIT: 300th POST!!

XRIMO... I don't see anything geeky in it either... I think any tattoo should have meaning or be symbolic... and yours clearly does.

Shadow's half love tattoo would also be very meaningful if he was to get it... providing it doesn't cause a lot of laughter when you show it to a Chinese person!! lol

For me... I'd always opt for animals... they're what I'm interested in and have spent my life working towards working with them. The family crest also has its obvious meaning and I'm proud to have the surname I have.


Tattoo artists will be more than happy to spend time making sure the design is just right for you too... i'd say they'd take more care and effort over a meaningful one too than someone who just walks in and picks one 'off the shelf' so to speak.

I actually think that you guys have very cool tatts! I like that means something important to you not every does that. Tattoos are more like a decoration for some....


Time spent being less than happy is time waistedWavey
