Post Pictures of your Tattoos - Page 7

post #91 of 392
While I've seen many tatoos that I gave props too, this musician has the only tattoos that I ever thought were completely stunning. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...endid=31245501

Ha, yes it does reference MD. I lived there since I was 3 and I just recently moved away. And anyone who has spent any time in MD knows, the flag is EVERYWHERE. It just seemed natural. Every now and then, I'll get a comment by someone who moved to LI from MD. It's nice to have that connection every now and then.

And thanks for mentioning the Cable poster. I liked his new series for a little while, but I dropped off. It sounds like the current arcs are getting better, but I'll wait for another crossover before giving the title a second shot.

I get the tattoos, and they are in good taste, and the lower back is a nice change from the now 'traditional' tramp stamp, but what is so stunning? She's only got the two lower back pieces and the triskelion on the right arm, right?

this will be the reason I don't buy any clothes for the next three months. I've waited on the list for another year and I'm going back to finish my half sleeve. Its Isaac Asimov inspired but the artist drew it with no reference.

They're simple, they are an elegant combination of the familiar (F-holes) in an unfamiliar way (a basis for art), they complement each other (curves on curves), and they instantly and clearly tell a story about her. So many tattoos are a mishmash of themes and designs. They are often complicated, lack a common theme (beyond the wearer's desires), and do not tell a story well. All of that is fine, but she chose a different path, and did it very well. Because of that, I thought they were stunning. ~ H

I'm piecing together different sources here but that getting tats in general wasn't exactly condoned in the faith and done with Hebrew letters doubly so. Personally, I see it from the two sides: Hebrew characters are incredibly symbolic but tattoos in general have such a negative history attached to them. Anyways, like I said, I'm only curious.

Tats are forbidden (Leviticus 19:28), in addition to associations with the Holocaust. But they're increasingly common among young, secular Jews.
