I got another tattoo! Ok, so the title might be a bit misleading as it's not like I just decided... welp, I can't play FFXIV, might as well get some ink! I've actually planned it for several months, but it just worked out well to fall this week, as it kind of kept me somewhat pre-occuppied while waiting for EA. Anyways, here it is! Anyone else have any tattoos to share?

You can have face tattoos. I wish there were more options though, I'd love to have some arm tattoos on my character as well, or a full back piece. Smiley: grin

pretty cool, wish i could get one myself but getting a tattoo for me isn`t an option considering i work with law and here in Brazil people are still very quick to judge someone based on small things like that

Amazingly the whole thing was done in two hours. The guy I went to is known all throughout the northeast. I had to wait 3 months just to get in for an appointment, but it was totally worth it. It's exactly what I wanted.

Just wondering if that is a specific character, or generic, as my first thought when I saw it was Roland from the Dark Tower series.

You are correct. It was going to have the text "There are other worlds than these" around it, but the artist didn't think it would look great since I have weak, tiny gamer arms. Smiley: tongue

That's some nice work!

Time for me to show off my true Final Fantasy fandom. I present to you my Bahamut Tattoo:

Currently drawing Leviathan for my lower arm, and I intend to have the inside of my arm filled in with Chocobo's, a Black Mage and tonberries... among other things.

Awesome idea for a tattoo, and it looks great! I can see why people have to wait so long to get an appointment with the artist.

Great tattoo! Love the coloring of it. So you're basically going to have a full sleeve of Final Fantasy. I see absolutely no problems with that. Some day I will get my Tolkein backpiece of the Gates of Moria, complete with Watcher in the Water, and full fellowship.

If you have a premium account, scroll over your username in the top right corner, then click on images from the drop down. Then click Add Image, Browse, select your image, confirm, make sure it's sized well, and then commit to upload. Then, when posting, click the Image button just above the text box, and select the image you want to use.

If you aren't premium, upload to somewhere like imgur and just paste the link.

BartelX and Tubrudi that's some sick ink!Smiley: cool I'm not into putting tattoos on my body, but everyone else in my immediately family has one. Hats off to you both. Glad to hear about some well thought out ideas for ink. I've seen some absolutely hilarious ink in my day. Nice work!

Yup, that's the idea haha :P

I also love the colours, and the detail. The artist who did it is amazing. He works slowly, but the quality is incredible. The Bahamut tattoo took about 26 hours in total. I'm getting him to do the entire sleeve, so should be fun haha.

Holy crap! That's a long time to get tattooed! How many sessions was that? Here's my first tattoo I got on the other arm. This one was two 4-hour sessions to get finished. Different artist who definitely took a lot longer. At some point, I'm going to go back to the guy I just had make the new one and have him touch up the first one; I love it but I'd really like the bottom to look more like flames and have a bit more depth to it.

Great tattoo, BartelX. I have to ask, though: is the "background" intentional, or bruising from the procedure? I'd like to think its intentional, but I've seen some pretty nasty bruising that could look like that. lol

Either way, it makes it look all the more detailed...

Hmm... I just took pics of my tats and sent them to my email via phone. Made an Imgur account. Then went to make a "new folder" on my desktop and the button to do so isn't there from my right click. The 'new" button was but there wasn't an option for "new folder" (weird-ed me out and at first) Then i was like ***** it I'll just file save as to a different folder. I hit file on the top left.. wait for it... booooooom!!! there wasn't a "save as" or "save" button anywhere to be found! Is my POS laptop about fried or whats going on with this mess? I'd like to share my SE tats for the enjoyment of all but i guess my comp's not going to let me until i get to work and am able to save them in a folder there. Unless any of you know of a nifty trick that might help...

It's actually a part of the tattoo. I initially was looking to have some mountains in the background, but he thought it might detract from the figure itself, and I agreed, so we went with the light, cloudy texture. The bruising will probably come later.

Kinda figured as much. It seemed too deliberate to be bruising.

I only asked, 'cause my ex got a couple of smaller tattoos, but she bruised like a tomato very shortly afterwards, and looked pretty much like that. Congrats on the killer ink, though!
