Covering Scars With Tattoos

On covering scars with tattoos By Ms Lou A nimbus It was such an emotional experience, it was a cut off for an old way of life, a taking away of a crutch. And quite frankly, that still scared me. The pain, over the scars, well it was weird as it was pair, where I had caused so much pain before. I have to say I nearly cried, it was like a battle I had won, an end of an era. A rebirth if you wish. I chose tattooing to cover up my own crass handy-work, because it is beautiful. The best compliment...

In the meantime I went back to Wew Zealand, didn't do much tattooing whilst there, not because I didn't want to but because there really wasn't much going on.

I love colour, there is enough black in my life and colour suits my skin. I will continue getting work until there is no more skin left and by that time I hope I will be proficient enough to work more on others.

Relation Between Tattoo Magic

I will put my cards on the table straight away I am not a qualified psychiatrist and my experience of self harm extends no further than picking the occasional scab. I have never, to my knowledge, suffered from any mental health issues, although some may disagree.

Skin Deep Forum Discussion On Tattoos And Self Harm

The tattooing has absolutely no Jini to self harm in my case. It is done purely for the end result, I find tattoos incredibly attractive, I (don't) go through that pain as some kind of catharsis. In other word, the pain of being tattooed really sucks. I hate it. But I put up with it knowing that I will have a gorgeous new piece of artwork. I continue to use tattoos as a pick-me-up, even when the response is less than positive from those around me. It feels positive but I can't help feeling that...

Tatoos Over Self Harm

Now the individual involved was not found guilty of a crime that would give them an income, but the cash, as I am writing this, is still being held by the powers that be as they seem reluctant to give the person their money back that they had earned - quite legitimately - by working their arse oil tattooing non-stop lor a years and saving for a forthcoming tax bill. So I ask myself is it now a crime to have cash There are still many folk that do not trust the banking system (and judging by...

Self Harm Behind Bars

Both tattooing and self harm are both prevalent in correctional institutions. Whilst some 'prison tattoos' have a specific inherent message, there is often a deeper psychological motivation too. Both tattooing and self harm have been interpreted as an expression by the inmate or patient to demonstrate ownership, defiance and retain control of some aspect of their lives. I find it quite worrying that some people think of tattoos as self harming I consider mine to he self improvement In my...

I really enjoy heavily contrasted pieces that just punch. But if I'm asked by my client do what 1 want to do, it usually involves mixing illustrated imagery with realism, its so much fun to create something from scratch right out of your head or from a reference of a photo and convert it into a traditional tattoo with hard lines and solid, bold colour and then mix it in with hyper detailed, no lines realism.

In fact he is a very competent all-round artist who with 11 trophies to his name so far, I'm sure we have not seen the last of by a long clialk. Wot bad...
