    I think it would be a very handy feature to have, actually, haha.

    Be nice if you could record yourself playing with it and then listen back while you are traveling around town.


    Also be nice if it would do the laundry, wash the dishes and walk the dog.

    Please tell me that the sorry rack of VHS tapes in the background isn't the entirety of your home video collection. If it weren't for that I'd say you and I were probably related.

    I don't have any cute asian arm candy though. Just lots of DVD's...


    That was the first thing I noticed as well.

    To each their own, sir.

    P.s. trolling is not a well-thought of sport on this site, fyi. I noticed that all your posts are of similar character to the one above.

    I have a funny feeling that steven93 is a repeat offender of some infamy.

    Yes, I am thinking the same. Interesting how many of his posts are on another now banned member's threads, also. P.s. did I feed the troll? Damn it! Sorry everyone! [​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry about it. It would take remarkable restraint not to respond to an insult about one's wife (even if the insult were made solely for trollish purposes).

    Mmm, you are right. Frankly though, having dealt with enough cretins and tossers over the phone during a protracted stint working in tech support, I am sort of jaded towards that stuff [​IMG] I have had insults directed to me certainly unsuitable to everyday conversation and possibly even unsuitable for the gratuitous cussing thread. Edit: hey, the ignore function works as advertised! [​IMG]

    FWIW, I think the art work is great. I am in the, evidently small, minority of men who think that artfully done tatoos do not detract from a woman's beauty.

    Skalogore, where was the celebration held?

    The dragon/phoenix on her back that she is having done currently is a lot better, I must say. She will be having most of that old dragon on her chest removed to leave the better coverup on her back instead.

    Now that was at a place here in Tucson, Soleil. Was pretty good, although I don't remember what I ate there (i.e. was not so spectacular I could not forget it [​IMG] .) http://www.soleiltucson.com/

    Thanks Zack. Yes, dragon with an orb/ying yang. But, as I mentioned, she is planning to have that one removed to leave only the better cover-up work on her back. Should be starting the removal very soon. The dragon is pretty well done even though it is old and faded - the new work in progress is a lot better though. The new dragon & phoenix will be covering an older botched tattoo; one of those things where an otherwise credible establishment lets a n00b employee near a customer when he should have no place using anything other than crayons [​IMG] But that was years before I met her and she has wanted to get rid of that tatoo for a long time now. Too expensive to remove the back piece completely so she decided to get some GOOD ink to cover it. As much as I am not one for ink myself the current work is definitely high-end.

    good luck, I understand it is a bitch to remove those multicolored ones.
    but you two are a really cute couple.

    Thank you, you are too kind [​IMG] But yes, deep-multicolour work is very difficult to remove with no ghosting. The lines were done so thickly and deeply, the old tattoo was 3D in parts. Very badly done, and from what I understand the shop's owner could not fix the damage back then, either. That dragon, however as it is monochrome and a lot more delicate should be relatively easy to remove according to the dermatologist.

    great. I have a simple line sketch - a matisse, and I would really like to get another one, but my wife would kill me. I want to get a japanese india ink drawing. but maybe I will get my wife to agree at a later point.

    Getting the traditional "tapping" style tattoo (irezumi I believe) would be a nice touch but it would be a) even MORE painful and b) hard to find someone who would be able to do a decent job (i.e. may need a trip to Japan for that one).

    GT, I lucked out, my gf totally digs my ink. She loves the juxtaposition of my outer conservative look and my ink and piercings underneath it. I have been giving more serious thought to my next (third). It will be another pin-up girl, probably another Elvgren.

    Here are the two I already have. Both were done by Tina Bafaro (http://www.bafaro.com) in Seattle.

    Left leg; something I doodled alot in class when I was a student. Not the best pic, but you are only missing her legs (no feet on her).

    [​IMG]

    Right leg; adapted from Gil Elvgren's One for the Road. Again not a great pic and she has a line across her face because of my sock. What can you do.

    FB, thanks. The Elvgren is now 5 or so years old. The color stays because I don't like the sun and when I have to go out in it in shorts I slather sun block on my calves. The other is more like 9 years old and the black has not faded at all.
