    You have the BEST taste in tats, Odd. Either that, or have the best ink artist.

    Or both >.>

    Haha, thanks Tur! The guy who made both of those tattoos really is amazing. And some of his work is even more awesome :D

    I might actually get some more tattoos at some point, OR, to go with the two I posted. I have this awesome plan to get quite a few when scientists invent some better medication for me. The thing is the meds I take leave me with discoloured skin, e.g. on my arms. It would be great to get that covered by tats some day :D

    I don't have any tattoos, but if I ever did plan to get one, I'd get this lady I used to work with to ink me. She now works as a full-time tattoo artist and she's totally amazing!!! She used to practice her tattoos on paper on her lunch at work and we were all totally blown away by how good she was.

    I noticed that many tattoo artists have Instagram and the like, does she also have a page with photos of the tattoos made by her?
    Neither do I have any tattoos nor am I planning to get one - I wouldn't even know what to get (also I'm still busy improving the potential canvas :p) - but I wouldn't say no if I had a good idea and knew a good artist (which I do, actually). I love the sight of good tattoos in distinct styles, though - such as Oddy's (which look awesome).

    She does, but I'm not sure if she would want me to post it publicly. I'll ask her if it's OK the next time I see her.

    I have lots of ideas, but I'm saving money to buy an appartment and as said, waiting for medical developments :D I found this absolutely fantastic tattoo artist in Warsaw and I'd love to get some tats from her. It's actually quite amazing how the art of tattoo making has improved lately. A few decades ago tattoos were all pretty much similar and usually quite ugly, but now you can get your body covered with real works of art. Oh, there's still quite a lot of ugly ones, but that's what happens if you try to get it done cheap. Also it's actually quite difficult to tattoo on skin - it moves and is kinda wobbly. Even if you can draw amazing stuff on paper, it doesn't mean you'd be able to tattoo well.

    Don't get carried away.
    Tattoos are forever, but youth isn't.:D

    Yeah, it isn't - tattoos or no tattoos. But I really doubt that a patch of skin that is brownish-red because it was regularly injected with medication will look better then the same patch of skin that has been covered with a beautiful tattoo (I'm not planning to get another as big as the one on my thigh. I was rather thinking of a couple of small ones). My arms look like I've been grabbed by someone violent and left with bruises. How pretty is that?
    And actually it is possible to remove tattoos.

    Well I guess when you put it like that, it makes some sense.
    Just maybe make it so there's a sort of theme going on, so it's not random. I think if I had to do it over again, I'd just go with the American Traditional style. Get a swallow on my chest, a mermaid on my arm, something along those lines. And like those guys in prison that have a tear drop tattoo on their cheek, supposedly signifying they've killed someone... I would get one tear drop tattoo for every cat that's died under my house. That's hardcore.:D
    Sorry to hear that treatment for you malady is causing cosmetic problems. That isn't easy to deal with sometimes.

    I think I'd continue with animals. This lady from Warsaw does absolutely adorable ones, like for example:
    Click 1
    Click 2

    It's a small price to pay really ;)

    The click 1 one is pretty friggin awesome, Oddy. Click 2 is less of my taste, but Click 1 more than makes up for that :)
