Yeah i know its not sniping related but i wanted to show these off real bad and this forum gets more traffic that the gallery(mel if this aint cool feel free to move it.

My little brother and i both got tats tonight, they are kanji words that have personal meaning to us both. Mine means God(im going to get smaller kanji on bothe shoulders meaning "Honor" and "Discipline") and my little brothers means Honor, they are fresh so they are a lil red.

Me, Sorry its dark




Lil Bro, Ripped like jesus





on a side note, my lil brother passed out halfway through his tat (combination of bad food and the pain) and he is far far tougher than I.

I hear the spine is the most painful place to get a tattoo, aside rom the armpit? Stabbing the bone is what causes the pain...?

yes, the least amount of fatty tissue, muscle thats in an aera the more it hurts to get a tat done there. which means the back of the neck and spine are pretty bad. From what i hear it has something to do with less cushioning around the nerve endings.

Very nice form on the Kanji characters.

According to my mother:
"If you get a tattoo I'll grind it off with a cheese grater."

So I settle for calligraphy on rice paper. Saves me having a few layers of skin taken off and mixed in with the Mozarella.

The artist who did those is pretty good. I've seen some mutilated Kanji in my day.

Out of curiosity, in the American military are those bar code tattoos popular, the ones that have your army number bellow them?

no bar code tats arent that popular. meat tags are though. all that is, is a dog tag tatted on your rib cage. remember your service number isnt some random number that they assign you, it is your social security number. so alot of people get themselves meat tags. i am sure it hurts like hell though. i refuse to do it.

Ooh, yeah I can understand people not really wanting a tatt of their social security number lol.

In the UK army numbers are of their own system. If you see any of those lunatics on internet forums or somesuch claiming to be in the SAS, an easy way of showing their bullshitting is to ask them their number.

AK:

the guy who did it traced it on tracing paper first and then wet it and transferred it to our backs.He then followed the transfer, it didnt seem very difficult, but it was time consuming.

Time-consuming is fine. If you've got the time to have someone stab you with a needle filled with ink, you've got the time for him to do it right at least.

Bit of a stupid question, but say I got a tatt on my arm, bicep. I then, maybe a couple of years later, do loads of weight training and build up my arms more.

Does the tatt still look the same, due to it only staining the same cell groups, or does it stretch and deform as the muscle grows?

I imagine it would distort slightly, depending on how much muscle mass you put on. I don't believe the ink stains the muscle tissue, just the fatty layer beneath the epidermis (God knows I am failing Biology for a reason) and thus howevermuch that stretches is howevermuch the tattoo would stretch.

But, I don't know.
