Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Chloe-Wa on February 23, 2010, 04:43:20 AM
haha i think i would sue my tattoo artist if he put 56 stars on my face
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Rasta-la on February 23, 2010, 05:53:02 AM
Lol I may, but she asked for it and then lied about it! just cuz daddy was mad DX well she got them removed, I could understand like 12 stars but 56. Wow that had to hurt, she also said that she had fallen asleep and when she woke up she had all the stars. I have a tat and believe u me, its hard to fall asleep during that.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Chloe-Wa on February 23, 2010, 06:11:02 AM
oh- i didnt know she asked for 56, why would you ask for 56 thats a bit over the top lol
my sister has a tattoo but she said it tickled although i imagine it would hurt

I Want The Opration TOO!
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: ReineDeVampire on February 27, 2010, 01:10:18 AM
What I do not understand is why someone would want to put a tattoo on their face in the first place...but more importantly STARS? And 56? There is no way she could even play that off as "I didn't know until he was done" because falling asleep or not, they have an outline on your skin that they tattoo from, and you have to tell them "Yes, that's where I want it, that looks great" before they start, so there's no way she didn't know there were going to be that many or how it looked.

And actually tattoo pain all has to do with placement and pain tolerance level. I have two tattoos, one is on the back of my neck, and the other is on my hip (left side) and the neck, felt hot and like someone had taken a safety pin and was scratching me with it...kind of burned and pinched...but was more annoying than painful...it like...itched and I wanted to slap the feeling away.
The one on my hip, though the guy told me it was a sensitive area and should hurt a lot, in some places I couldn't even feel it, in others it tickled, and in only a couple of spots, it was a bit painful.
You just need to keep steady breathing and relax yourself...adrenaline will kick in and that's like a natural pain reliever...it's when you have a low pain tolerance and you freak out during it that it will hurt (like my mom who had her eyes clenched and said "ow ow ow ow ow" over and over again).



But back on topic, right on with the expressions :)

Wow That Not Right Getting Stars On Your Face I Mean That Many.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Chloe-Wa on February 27, 2010, 04:56:16 AM
i might get a really small tattoo on my ankle or wrist but i wouldnt get a tatoo on my face. some employers wont hire people who have visible tattoos so i'm going to be careful before i decide if i want one
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: JimmyLost on February 27, 2010, 09:19:56 AM
well I saw this person who had a tatoon on their forhead right near the hairline, so if she wore her hait one way you wouldn't know it was there, but tatoos on your face seems like a pretty bad idea to me. I mean those things are permanent. I am getting a tatoo though, an uncle of a friend of mine is going to do it for free (or at least for a discount I don't actualy know right now). It's going to be somewhere on my left shoulder and it's either going to be the Fob Wach from Doctor Who, or just some Gallifreyan writing. I cant wait it's gonna be so cool.

Post by: JimmyLost on February 27, 2010, 09:31:26 AM
Nifty! I'm probably going to get two or three in my lifetime, but I'm gonna see how the first one goes first. They're probably all going to be associated with the major fandoms I grew up with. Like I might get a snitch or something for HP later idk, we'll see.

Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Tabac vie on February 27, 2010, 10:00:37 AM
I've had three tattoo's in my life. first one slightly above the middle of my shoulder blades and below my neck. Which burnt a little bit, and really hurt when they inked over the part on my spine, but other than that it was pretty fine. That one was thesecond biggest one I have an image of a Robin flying south over the ocean while the sun is setting. (stands for some stuff)

second one was the the smallest is one my side which is a series of intials and then some words. That one actually tickled to begin with, then felt like someone was poking me with a stick.

the third is a small copy of a drawing drawn by a friend of mine it's on my left shoulder blade...that was the most painful and the biggest.

but like maggie-la said it's all about breathing and steadying yourself.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Chloe-Wa on February 27, 2010, 10:02:11 AM
i would probably end up panicking, i get into a bit of a flap about stuff that people say is painful  :-[ but i would hopefully manage
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: JimmyLost on February 27, 2010, 10:04:21 AM
I've been waiting forever to get a tatoo but I knew I would have to think about it a lot, yaknow cuz of the permanece thing, so I can't wait to get one now.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Chloe-Wa on February 27, 2010, 10:05:26 AM
ye it will take me a while to decide on whether or not i want a tattoo because even if you get rid of them, youre left with a scar
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Maxie-la on February 27, 2010, 11:00:44 AM
Also, doesnt removing tattos hurt alot? cuz then ur sucking the ink FROM ur body.

ye i think they can use lasers and stuff, it takes ages to heal too
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Tabac vie on February 27, 2010, 11:06:55 AM
yep. someone I knew had a tattoo removed they said it hurt a hundred times worse than the actual tat. but I love mine..and they aren't in ovbivious places so I don't have to worry about work and such.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: ReineDeVampire on February 27, 2010, 11:19:49 AM
Cool.

My two tattoos are an ankh and the Japanese kanji for "Family."
The first one I got was the ankh, I decided I wanted that as my first tattoo when I was like...13? So last year (still 17 at the time) when I got my tattoos, that's of course what I went with. Because I love Egypt so much, and I love the ankh. Then Family symbol was a spur of the moment thing (like I had 2-3 days to think about it lol) but since my mom was paying I was like "OKAY!" lol. Me, my brother, my mom, her brother, their cousin Ron, his wife Kara, and my non-blood brother, (who's blood brother was the guy doing the tattoos) all got the symbol in different sizes, colors, and places, but we all have it, so it was like a bonding experience, which is why I know I won't regret it.

I already have my third tattoo planned, I just need money for it. It's my ode to Alice in Wonderland, and my addiction to computer solitaire at the same time...probably as well as my collection of playing cards lol. It's going to be on my right wrist, a heart that I drew that has card suits in it...

Oh and I have some pictures of my tattoos...

My ankh (the night it was done):

My "Family" tat:

(that's purple and green)

About to get tattooed:

First bit:
(http://c1.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/47/l_c19f71ad91484a8b94bc37300b651954.jpg)

...yeah I got them done at my grandma's house lol...


And yeah, I have heard that tattoo removal is a lot worse than getting tattoos, and they have to get it done like, by color...yikes...intervals...of pain.

Post by: Team Toshi Banana on February 28, 2010, 04:41:47 AM
I like them, ReineDeVampire!
But I'd never get a tattoo... my parents would (first) kill me, (then) pretend they didn't care, and (then) get really mad and act like they didn't know I existed for the rest of my life. (They don't even want me to get my ears pierced, although they said I could if I really wanted to)
Maybe if I knew I could easily get it removed, I'd get one in flash-tattoo design on my arm or something. But I don't trust laser-removal right now. (It sounds... painful)

Post by: Tabac vie on February 28, 2010, 04:54:46 AM
okay thanks to Jimmy I now can post some pictures of some of my tats...here is one, i'm still looking for one and the other is too big so I am in the process of resizing it. But here is the one on my left shoulder blade. It was drawn by a friend of mine, I had seen the orginal picture at the place I got it done at but I wanted to personalise it so I asked Clara if she would draw a verison of it this one I got most recently.

Well I can still post those pics for you, but I'm guessing that you already posted them...though for some reason attached pictures don't show up for me, or on this computer or my phone...don't know why. I've tried multiple web browsers even.

I think you should try uploading and embeding the pictures. That way you can be sure that they show up for everyone...because I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't see them...and if I am..well, that sucks, lol.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Tabac vie on February 28, 2010, 11:35:21 AM
I can only post them as attachments I can't embed, if you can embed them for me that would be great...I the other picture is to big and it's taking me some time to resize it.....I really need a new camera mine sucks nothing ever show up right and it shakes really bad.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: ReineDeVampire on February 28, 2010, 11:42:24 AM
Well if you go to Photobucket.com (http://photobucket.com/) and create an account, you can upload your pictures and it will give you links. All you would need to do is copy the fourth option it gives you under the photo, "URL code" I believe, and paste that in here and your picture will have been embedded.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Tabac vie on February 28, 2010, 11:58:01 AM
here I just posted a link. the picture is really bad my personal camera sucks the first one was taken on my mothers camera and this one on mine. But basically what it says is "CA never forgotten" which is the initials for a friend of mine who pasted away, the tattoo was free handed by his sister so it isn't the prettiest tattoo out there but it means a lot to me.

The facial expressions were spot on. I've never really thought about getting a tattoo, if i do it will be something small.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Shay-la-wa on June 19, 2010, 12:36:24 AM
The facial expressions were good. I liked the Special one. And I feel like getting icy tattoos on my face, but that feeling will probably pass before I can get them.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Brielle-wa on June 19, 2010, 03:22:59 AM

No, she had different expressions in each one, and they gave off a different feeling.

IT WAS NOT THE SAME WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Chloe-Wa on June 21, 2010, 03:19:52 AM
i agree that they were very good, she only had hair and makeup to use because she wasn't going to go for actually surgery just for this :P   
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Mara-la on June 21, 2010, 08:04:41 AM
Maybe she couldve used different hair styles Evin...... It would be more different. I agree, it was like the same shot, however they gave a different appeal. Especially the flash tats, which were, by the way, totes AWESOME!

Maybe as an ugly, she couldve used messy, tangled hair.
Maybe as a pretty, it could be combed.
Maybe as a special, it could by tied back.

Just ideas. For Evin.
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!
Post by: Brielle-wa on June 21, 2010, 03:35:28 PM
I know, I mean it could have been more extreme. th uglies one could've been really bad lighting, and make your eyes look puffy or something, the pretties one could have had better lighting, and lots of photoshop, to make it almost unreal, and the special one, well, the expressions weren't that extreme, but there isn't much you can do for a special. you could try photoshop, but it'd be hard.

I'm not being a pessimist, I'm just being honest, gosh!
Title: Re: I (also) Got the Operation!!

Without extremes, I think it was done quite well.

Sorry I went a little off on you Brielle. ;D I just think it was cool that she even put an effort to do that. and we need to realise it looks like it was just a spur of moment thing, not a professional job.
