Blackthorn Sidepiece First Session

The big day was Sunday at 2pm. I had worked all day Saturday and when I got home all I could think about was getting that tattoo. How was it going to feel? Was it going to hurt as bad as my ankles? What was it going to look like? I did get to see an outline of it a month ago, but how was I to know what it was going to look like with all the shading? Will I cry? Or will I be okay? I was so excited to get it, I had a hard time sleeping ... read more

My beautiful memorial tattoo

I had to get my first cat I ever had put to sleep on November 18th 2005. Her name was Tigger and I loved her. Ever since then, I knew I wanted a tattoo to remember her. To show that she would always be with me, wherever I am. I never had the money to do it, and I hadn't had a tattoo in almost a year and a half, so I was really itching for some ink. This morning when I woke up, I was already having a shitty day because I was sick. I had caught a cold ... read more

Bad tattooist/good tattooist

Everyone gets tattoos for difference reasons. I guess the reason that I started getting them was because it felt like my body was incomplete somehow and that by getting it decorated, it was making it prettier to my own eye. Piercings never really took to me, having had rejected navels and nipple, I wasn't used that heartbreak when you have to retire a piercing. Tattoos were always more beautiful albeit permanent adornments. Unfortunately for some reason my tattoo choices have been quite impulsive, going with designs that I chose on the spur of the moment instead of choosing the ones ... read more

It's like Cheer's the bar only you get tattoo's

The old posting was so outdated. They deserve to be represented accurately. Enjoy. My friends whom I happen to work with all decided that they wanted to get tattoos and since we all had them before everyone had their own place in mind. But I convinced them to go to the guy that I always gone to, Eric who worked at Concrete Jungle. So two weeks ago we went to Harlem (a jungle in its own right) after work. The atmosphere hadn't changed as far as the amount of customers they had .Even though my previous visits I managed to ... read more

An Investment

Since I became enthralled in the body modification community, I've never really been interested in tattoos. I've seen so many that I felt they were almost outdated, a pussy's way of feigning individuality and strength. I focused my interest to scarification, the real man's method of expression. Oh you had a needle going into your skin? Damn... I had my skin peeled off without the use of any anesthetic. With time came some maturity. This isn't about who can stand more pain, this isn't a game of thresholds, this is you. This is me. Body modifications are used for good, ... read more

Three Moons Rising

Somewhere along the line, in high school I think, I fell in love with the triple goddess moon symbol. I had started finding different aspects of Wicca and neo-Paganism quite interesting. And I have always loved the moon; it's obviously a beautiful and mystical thing. The triple goddess moon depicts three phases of the moon: waxing crescent, full and waning crescent. And to the Pagans the triple goddess moon is representative of the phases of a woman's life; which would be the maiden, the mother and the crone. The maiden represents enchantment, expansion, the promise of new beginnings, birth, youth ... read more

Cold Front Tattoo...on my Ribs!

It had been close to five months since getting the F-Bomb tattoo in the center area of my chest. It was a pretty brutal experience, but it was time to get another tattoo. Thing is, I didn't know what to get tattooed. I thought about the upper back piece I had designed. Something about it just wasn't right though, so I killed that idea. I had to think of another design idea. One night, I had just climbed into bed when the thought hit me. A cold front! To say I'm a weather freak is a serious understatement. A cold ... read more

The Beginnings of the Solar System

I always had a problem with my body, a sort of disconnect that wound up feeding into anorexia, cutting, and a variety of other unhealthy habits. It just didn't seem to reflect who I was, no matter what I did with it- not at a BMI of 14.9, not at a BMI of 22, not with a pattern of icy white scars across my forearm, not with fresh wounds on my legs. And while my body seemed like a cage, my mind played out on a level far beyond its constraints: I have struggled with mental illness for half of ... read more

Being an obsesive compulsive.... now tattooed too!

Hi, first of all thank you for taking the time to read this. It's very considerate of you since I took the time to write it. Well I'm a 31 YO single straight male, from a very conservative family, friends, country, work enviroment etc (think conservative and I'm there), the kind of person noone expects to get any kind of mod. Well they are pretty wrong, considering that for many years I've been what I've come to call a "closeted piercee", and have some never to be seen piercings such as a 0G Frenum and my septum to a 6G ... read more

tattooed dick

Ik ben al vanaf de wieg geinteresseerd in piercings en tattoos. Mijn eerste oorringen kreeg ik toen ik vier jaar oud was en daarna volgden er nog heel wat meer metalen toevoegingen aan mijn lichaam. Na dat ik elf werd piercte ik mijn tepels en kreeg behoorlijk wat commentaar op school. Vanaf dat moment wilde ik graag een genitale piercing. Ik heb er veel over gelezen op bmezine. Dydoes, ampallangs en PA's leken mij erg goeie toevoegingen op het arsenaal dat ik reeds bij me droeg. Omdat ik veel te jong was om dat professioneel te laten doen - ben ... read more
