    This one is on my side. It's not a finished piece as it will eventually arch down the hip and outer thigh. Whenever I have the money to finish it anyway. Kinda covers where they hacked on me to remove my lung. IMG_20170830_154320.jpg

    Thanks, One on my Shoulder was a Dude in Ballarat, one on the leg was done by a Tattooist and senior member for a rather prominent Bikie Gang. Local area.
    22 has inspired me for my next one. It is like she read my mind(thanks 22). It will happen very soon. Will post a happy snap when done. But this one will be front of neck and chest.

    is 64 too old to get a tattoo? if not been thinking about a winged heart. black and white is fine. like this one:

    [​IMG]
    can have several meanings, but has meaning for me thusly:

    'The winged heart is a symbol of the Sufi movement. The symbol is a heart with wings, symbolizing ascension; the five pointed star represents divine light, the moon responsiveness to this light. the symbol was chosen by the founder of the Sufi Order, Hazrat Inayat Khan.'

    also the phrase 'remember to remember', which i've carved onto my corkscrew willow walking stick. :)

    Never too old. Who cares what the kids think? Most of them aren't even old enough to get tattoos.

    Never too old mate, and anyone who says you are doesn't have a clue why we get them. My ex wanted to get a tattoo, and went through the whole "oh but what if I regret it, what will other mum's think" routine. I pointed out to her that somewhere today someone was diagnosed with cancer, somewhere else someone lost a loved one. Pretty sure each of those folks would swap there worries with you I they could. She laughed and said your right. She now has a full sleeve shoulder to hand, and wants more. Go for it and wear it with pride :)

    Yes, my advice is to pretend the $$$ are butterflies, smile at them fluttering away, best not to think too much about that bit :)

    good advice. picturing this 'winged heart' on my forearm I had a good look at my physical self. being a good house holder and a senior on a fixed income and noticing all of my 'lifes' natural tattoos, decided money could be spent more wisely. :rolleyes:

    Well thank you 22, when your back safe and can read this. Thanks to your suggestions, my initial design and about a half day talking to tattooists my next Tat is booked to begin either next Friday 10:30am, or fortnight later with another tattooist, depending on what he tells me of my ideas Monday. However my friend "cosmic joke" as to your concern about money.....

    I must defer to my previous butterfly suggestion. Really best not to think about it. Treat it like a toilet visit in the middle of a movie, you gotta do it, it is annoying, just ignore it and get back to the chair :)

    My new design is my biggest and I am told most painful yet.
    Starts on the back of my neck, round each side to the front, across my upper chest, down the center to a bit above naval and across my upper chest including my bloody nipples. I am told the sternum hurts lots, actually more than lots they tell me, and I have a large Vampire cross going right down it. Will report once done, Apparently between 10 to 14 hours in the chair at $120 ish per hour. Ouch.

    I have done 6 hours straight before. Might have to do this one in a couple of goes, I suspect my tattooist wont want to go that long in one hit.
    Will post happy snaps if I am happy with it when done.

    And 22, yes OT3P is going pride of place, above collar but below buzz cut on the back of my neck so she better give me a back stage pass and kiss (with a brag photo) on her next Aussie tour. I hope you will send her a happy snap of my dedication to her on your twitter feed for me..
    Like the line is on one of my favorite songs.

    … He called me a dyke
    I called him an ambulance
    I can make you famous too
    But you tremble at the thought of that…


    Well I am not a dyke, and I am not gay, But I believe in equal rights,
    And I will tremble, but by hell she is welcome to make me famous. :)

    Sorry, another plug, Love OTEP


    God imagine having OT3P as a follower on twitter, you my friend 22 are a goddess. :)
    That's like saying, yeah was watching telly the other night and Lemmy dropped in for a piss up. We got smashed, he crashed on my couch pissed ....Wow :)

    Tats are scary.

    Only saw about two I liked, but I wont get one.

    If I did, I would get a flying saucer between my shoulder blades, so when it lands on my butt, I will know this journey is over!

    Oky Doky,
    Friday is here and almost gone and I have installment one of my new tats, So as promised here are some happy snaps.

    First, am I allowed to PLUG a shop nivek??? Chop this bit out if not. You know me, I don't understand protocol.
    So if your not reading this bit its gone so ignore it. Hmm that made no sense.
    Anyway in case it is allowed. I Highly recommend a lovely Tattooist called Ash at Broken Arrow Tattoos in Ballarat. Victoria, Australia. She is very good, very fast and very gentle. And a really nice person to chat too while getting tattooed. And best of all a great Tattooist.
    If Ash is booked out the shop has a lot of really talented other tattooists, all young and really switched on dudes, you wont go wrong here with anyone. I promise.

    Anyway....

    Follow if you can.
    Chest first, was in the chair for a few hours, Ash is very gentle and It wasn't too painful even though folks say the chest hurts like hell. Got another session to come, but here is the bit Ash got done today on the front.
    Just for an FYI, she free handed the thorns how bloody good is that.

    upload_2017-9-15_20-37-2.png

    OK so that makes little sense on its own.
    Next session will see more, I am getting a vampire bite on each side of the thorn a little above the Y shaped thorn above the U on Dracul. It will have a bite and a little blood dripping on and covering a small section of the thorns,

    Next

    Imagination needed here now...
    This will go underneath it, as I don't have dark skin it will be Red with faded out black from the edges.
    The original design had a Sword in the middle but I photo shopped it out and put in the cross you see.
    It is a variation but this cross is Associated with Vampires.

    upload_2017-9-15_20-42-31.png

    OK so the cross goes down my sternum, and the Dragons over my Tits (Sorry, bloke tits :) )
    Dreading coloring in nipples, cannot imagine anything nice about that. !!!

    Finally in the same design and font as the top ORDO DRACUL

    I will have a curved

    NOX ARCANA
    in the same or similar design.
    NOX ARCANA roughly translates to Night Secrets

    I am very happy with how it turned out. Ash is an awesome Tattooist, and a really nice person so if your in the area I can't recommend her highly enough.

    Finally the back bit....

    22 re you here ????
    Tell OT3P on your twitter feed she has to come to Australia soon, and she has to tell me which concert to be at. I don't concert unless I get the Mosh Pitt, no where else to be as far as I am concerned.
    No mosh Pitt, No Concert :)
    Tel her, like in the song, she has got to make me famous :)
    Call me back stage, on stage and give me a raunchy Kiss. anything. I love her to bits, she is a goddess.
    I love her songs, her poetry makes me cry, some make me ashamed to be male You both know the one(s))...anyway enough of that,

    Here is my neck...

    The rough look to the lettering was my choice, I wanted to match her album covers, I did not want it crisp.
    I will wear it with pride. Com-on 22 you know you love me lol, send here a happy snap, a link, shit send her my email address, send her my home address if she wants to make me famous in a warm bed in a little shed out the Aussie bush:)
    OTEP is a goddess.
    Tell her I have 4 tats, My Family on my left arm (yes, put my ex wife on, the kiss of tattoo death, now separated for nearly 2 years) ...Fair enough, I was warned it was the kiss of Death.

    My Tats...
    A tribute to Led Zeppelin and Bonzo on my right arm.
    A tribute to Pink Floyd on my right calf,
    And OTEP on my neck.
    Tell her I ousted both Rammstein and Motorhead on my neck for her.
    She is a head banger, she will know that's BIG. :)
    Giving Lemmy second place.... :)
    Com on 22, send her something,


    upload_2017-9-15_20-54-32.png


    Anyway, that's today's Tats, more to come, in a couple of weeks when it is all finished.
    Oh and BTW, that crazy $$ quote 10 to 15 hours... from the other nutty tattooist shop, all crap.
    Ash did all this in 3 hours, she is a legend. Other place was a rip off.
    Don't go anywhere else Than Broken Arrow in Ballarat.
    And no I have no affiliation other than they are my new and final tattoo shop :)
    Cheers All



    Sorry, another shameless plug to the godless of Metal...

    Well I'm excited, two more days till Tattoo session no two,
    just refined the dragons a bit more
    Going to look more like this if my Tattooist can do it, she's awesome so I bet she can.
    With the NOX ARCANA underneath it, she was talking about a couple of strands of thorns hanging down too, not sure, will see what she has in mind.

    Mate, they are some seriously good looking tats, So clear, the colors really pop. They look shit hot.
    Who ever your tattooist is, they are a keeper. Very Nice mate. Anyone who gets tats knows how hard it is to get such a clear, defined artwork. Very Nice.

    Oky doky,
    Dunno if anyone looks, but here is the latest installment.
    Up to 7 hours now and and would pay double. My Tattooist, Ash is awesome, talented and a really nice person.
    If I wasn't such an old barnacle I would marry her in a heartbeat.
    Anyway.
    Here is the latest, this chest bit is 4 hours. Outline was one, Red and shading 3 all together. Total 4 for this bit.
    Got more to go, I am guessing with the rest of the shading, and the NOX ARCANA underneath the dragons, maybe another 3 or 4 hours.
    Note to potential tattoo first timers.
    When your tattooist is about to tattoo your nipples, pauses and says, Ummm just warning you, I am told this really hurts....Listen, close your eyes, think good things, she is not understating it.
    As for the sternum, bloody ouch, nipple (my nipples) are only small so the pain is intense but short, Sternum....not so much, Needless to say, If you are a tattoo Virgin, my suggestion is to NOT go for full chest for the first one. Go for a shoulder, you can nod off through the shoulder.
    Anyway, thanks Ash, if you ever see this post. Your the best. :)
    Oh, and for those doing the numbers, Yes its over $1000, probably finish $1500 ish when done.
    But, you have to look at this every day. Ignore the $$$, Love your tattooists and their work.
    If you find an Awesome tattooist like Ash, never leave them. :)
