I'm becoming more and more fascinated by fan bias, like people who can't see a clear forward pass thrown by their team. Have just been reading from a lot of people on twitter saying there's nothing wrong with the thumbs of this tattoo that got the artists booted off Ink Master.

Image


... the reference has wonky thumbs, true, but they are clearly on the near side of the hand, while the tattoos' are on the back side of the hands and coming forward. It was a little sad watching the episode, though, because another team spotted it before it was inked and allowed those guys to put that tattoo on the person to get an edge in the competition (thought it's not a horrific mistake, it is now a very public one). :?

I cringe every time I watch that show. Who would sign up to get a tattoo they don't have much control over, that is then going to be ripped to shreds on national TV? :?

I love it when they get angry with the person getting the tattoo for wanting something different to what the tattooist wants to tattoo.

Reminds me of this old NZ Federation of Labour logo that used to regularly appear on TV news programs back in the 70s.

I've wondered the same and it was only in this season where I finally heard one of the artists exclaim during the "what each canvas wants" segment: "Where do they find these f*&%ing people!?!?" :lol:

That said, there are people who just love tattoos and don't mind so much what goes on so long as it looks cool. Not my style at all, but obviously enough of them exist. Keep in mind, too, that apprentice artists need someone to tattoo and they often rely on these people to train on (usually covered in random tats). A friend of a cousin was willing to give dirt cheap / free tattoos if he could use you to practice on! Hell no ...

Decided to change my artist. He is really going through a rough patch at home. I can just imagine what it must be like to lose your 8 year old daughter.


Found another artist who seems to work hard on his images. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. I want my skull and Medusa done now.


Bit nervous about the new bloke. What do you think.

Can only guess, but a full colour piece that covers half my lower leg took 8 hours (two sittings). I'd imagine full sleeve is heading into 20+ hours territory.

We were talking about 'watercolour' a while back and I finally saw one that I liked. Given that she's sweeping her hair from the water, I like the dripping / out of the lines aspect, and the colour actually looks washed out.

I like Celtic crosses because they're unique to this part of the world and look beautiful carved in stone.

Tattoos of them can be hit and miss.

Every dickhead seems to have one now though. :frown:

Yep. It's one thing I don't get about people and their tattoos ... get the same thing a lot of other people have. If you like the style or a certain motif, fine, but do something different with it than just the stand-alone cross on your upper arm.

Every time I see this new Ink Master spin off, Angels, I can't help but think of boardies saying "she's ruined" re: women and tattoos. I have to say, I would like to see her without the neck tattoo.

She does very cool work ... but just reading up on this style ...
I've seen the degeneration of these types of tattoos first hand, having worked at a tattoo shop when the trend began. The artists I worked with used to deny those kind of jobs on a daily basis, in fear of having their name attached to a tattoo that would look terrible in a matter of years. These types of tattoos just don't age well, and the reason is science.

There are certain fundamentals necessary in tattooing in order to create not only a nice tattoo, but a quality tattoo. A tattoo built to stand the test of time. Black outlining is fundamental number one.

Black ink is carbon based, while all color inks have a base of pigment. When carbon-based ink is applied into the skin as an outline it becomes hard, and creates a dam that keeps pigment from spreading further into the skin. The abstract and watercolor tattoos done nowadays typically lack proper outlines, and without them the pigment tends to bleed, as well as lose its crispness and vibrance, when healed. This means that the once beautiful watercolor butterfly will become a large blob of indiscernible color in just a few months time.

Not my cup of tea, but it's an interesting mix. Some splashes of red and it'd be Trash Polka (if this isn't already)

Ok.. Just wanted to add that the word Tattoo is one of the few Polynesian words borrowed into the English language since supposedly the sailors saw the tattoos on the Polynesians back in early contact years.

The proto-Polynesian word is 'Tatau'.

In Samoan legends, the first time tattooing was brought over to Samoa was via Siamese twins named tilafaiga and Taema. Probably in the 1400-1500AD period. Tilafaiga and Taema were twins on the island of Olosega which is part of the Manu'a islands in American Samoa. The king of Manu'a ordered them to travel to Fiji to learn the art of tattooing and bring it back to Samoa. So they went and yadda yadda, they came and taught the people of Savaii first then travelling eastward back to Manu'a. Its a pretty LONG story, but that's the TL;DR version.

Some pics of the samoan Tatau practiced using the old tattooing methods. The Male version.

The female version

And those interested, the tongan version. This has close ties with the Samoan ones because only the 'Tui Kanokupolu' line of Chief had them due to maternal ties to Samoa. They have only just started reviving it recently. Was basically banned for over 100 years in Tonga by King Siaosi Tupou 1 (who ironically enough had the Tatau as well).

Image

Subtle differences in length and designs can be seen. But to untrained eyes they look identical.

I love those! I popped into a shop when I was in Apia. Didn't get one, though they had an opening and asked. It would be interesting to have one tapped in though, traditional-style ...

If you're polynesian how does the tattoo process work over there is it just go into a place and get one as normal or is it more complex?
