Dia de Los Muertos Skull

For months leading up to my 18th birthday, I couldn't for the life of me think of what I wanted. I searched and searched, and then got inspiration from the death of my great grandfather, who was of Hispanic decent. I found the dia de los muertos skull (sugar skull) was perfect for me, and that I knew exactly who I wanted to do it. I chose Hula Moon Tattoo, not only because I know that they have wonderful artists there, but also because they are VERY sanitary. I've done my fair share of research, and I suggest that if ... 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

This is not a memorial tattoo.

Let's start with a little background, shall we? When I was younger, I was lucky enough to live in a house with not only my parents and my brother, but my mother's sister, and her mother. As a result of my mother and father (and auntie) working full-time, I would always go home after school to my mother's mother. In Gujarati, the language I speak at home, "Nanima" means "mother's mother," and so that is what I call her. I was lucky enough to be brought up by Nanima, who actually immigrated to Canada from Tanzania to help in my ... read more

Faded Black Freckles

This is the story of my attempt to tattoo myself, which has resulted in a small constellation of black freckles on my left forearm that I am really quite attached to now, despite the circumstances in which they were acquired. State of Mind When I was 16 I was not very happy. The perspective of age tells me that this is a fairly common occurrence for 16 year olds! Still, at the time perspective seemed impossible to find and I seemed to be sinking without trace in negative emotions. I quit college after two weeks of trying to study my ... read more

The story of my foot tattoo...

I have been planning a tattoo in honour of my Grandma for 4 years now, and I am pleased to say I finally got it! I decided on a foot tattoo, as I'm keen on having the ability to conceal my tattoo when necessary... also, I find foot tattoos to be adorable and feminine. Anyways, this tattoo is my third, and having experience in being tattooed I figured I had a fairly good understanding of what to expect. I'll be the first to admit it, I was wrong! A good friend of mine who has tattoos in similar places to ... read more

A Peacock In Time

My 22nd birthday was fast approaching, and I knew what I wanted, a peacock on my foot. I had already been thinking and planning it out for a few months. For about a year or so I've been just dying to get my feet tattooed. I just thought having one's feet tattooed can be so flattering if it is done just right, same with most tattoos I suppose. Peacocks symbolize beauty and grace. They also symbolize eternal life, prosperity, royalty, compassion, soul and peace. Peacocks are loyal and faithful partners and therefore they also are a symbol for eternal love. ... read more
