Still Looking

I'm still on the search for some good Joan of Arc art to become my next tat. I know my tattoo guy is itching to do it, I'm just really careful about what I am going to put permanently on my body. I learned my lesson with the wings after all. I found this interesting related post (and blog) while surfing this morning.

Boy this guy makes me look like such a slacker when it comes to posting. I guess I need to step it up a notch!

PS: After I posted I remembered a piece I have in my bedroom that I might consider using to represent her. I really love it. I have seen other copies of this in the past and think it might have a name. If anyone is familar please drop me a line in the comment section about it.

Can you guess?

Can you guess WHY they had lines tattoo'd on their toes? (answer below)

Because they are knitters. This is the line where they need to start decreasing for the toe of their socks. Love it!!!

Next tattoo idea

For my next tattoo I am thinking I want Joan of Arc on my lower leg. So I am scouting for pictures of her to tweak or use. This one I found in a kids magazine at the doctors office today.

It may be abit romanticized but I like it. I'm going to keep looking though.

Tattooed Face (1)

For the beauty sake, she beautiful on what she believes.

A tattoo facelift

Before: here is my shoulder tat from 1992ish. Originally done at Tattoo America Hampton Beach NH. It was flash I picked out and asked for rainbow colored wings on. It was also a cover up of a smaller broken heart. It got old and tired looking and I didn't like how the had colors faded. (and wasn't thrilled with the original colors in the first place) I also didn't like how the left wing looked one dimensional yet the right one looked ok.
Yesterday I had it re-done by Chris at Atlantic Studio in Rockland Maine. I think he did fabulous with what I gave him to work with.

Needless to say I am VERY pleased with the results. It isn't a tattoo I would pick out for myself today (ahh youth) but at least now I am not embarrassed to have it on my body.
Kids let this be a lesson to you to always pick the colors you want in your tattoo. Not every tattoo can be fixed later on. And even those that can will have limitations. I got lucky.

Tattoo Design And How To Choose The Right One For You

Making the big decision to go ahead and get a new tattoo requires a considerable quantity of due thought. The main consideration is the kind of tattoo design that you would like and the second consideration is where on your body you are going to have it done.

A tattoo can be an indicator of the kind of person you are in terms of what style you like and can even give others clues about your personality so it pays to take your time and plan out the tattoo you want. Check out different tattoo artists and parlours before making your decision. Also try and choose one based on a recommendation from somebody you know that has had a tattoo done that you admire. Whatever you do, don't check in at the first tattoo parlor you see and get a tattoo done.

Only the other day, one of my friends had a tattoo done rather hastily and I could tell he wasn't overly enamoured with the overall result. Too late now though, he's got to live with it unless he wants to go through expensive procedures to get it removed.

When you find the tattoo artist that you want to do your tattoo, have a meeting with them first to talk about the tattoo designs that are available, along with how much each tattoo is going to cost. Also view the artists designs and work whilst you are there.

Be sure to also choose a tattoo parlor that is licensed, as your health is a primary concern, along with hygienic conditions. It is also of value to consider if there are any implications on your life that this new tattoo will have. For instance, a tattoo on your forearm is probably not going to go down too well in a job that involves working with the public when you want to wear a short sleeved shirt in the summer. You get the idea.

Also think about whether you really want to live with this tattoo design for the rest of your mortal days. Sure, you make think it's the best thing since sliced bread when you initially look at the design, but are you going to feel that way in 5 years from now when you wake up to look in the mirror at it each morning.

You may also want to take along some pictures of tattoo designs that interest you to the tattoo artist so that they have a good idea of the kind of tattoo you would like. Small tattoos are simple enough to do, but large tattoos require more thought, time and consideration.

The internet is full of great tattoo designs, so it's also well worth checking in at cyberspace for a while and do some surfing to find the best tattoo design possible for you.
