When my friend told me they would be in Austin, I bought a plane ticket and flew there to meet her in person. Never been to a tattoo convention and I have to tell you, I saw some really strange stuff! Anyhow, we talked about getting my first tattoo, but it never happened.... I think I was a bit overwhelmed by it all.

Anyhow... I got to meet my best friend in person, she is totally awesome! And I learned a thing or two about tatts!
I bet i know him. My cousin is a world famous pin striper and painter for hot rods. He has painted on various shows such as Monster Garage and Pimp my ride. He has tats all over him. I was going to go to the international tattoo convention when it came to Salt Lake, even though i dont have any and dont really like them. I still wanted to go because my cousin was there with his display of cars. But i didnt make it. I bet your friend was there too. i bet they know each other.

Tattoos for me are just not my thing. I do like some of them but i still wont get one.

If your body is a temple, why can't we paint the walls?

I am fully sleeved on on arm, a majority of the other, have the right calf done, started on my back, and can't wait to get under the gun again!

Tattooing is the worlds "second" oldest profession. It has come far from a right of passage, or something criminals have, tattooing is an art form.

I am actually more surprised at the comments I get from, cough*"older" people, in particular, older ladies. They seem fascinated and want to hear about it and touch them.

Tattoos are a very personal thing, regardless of if they are on display for the word to see, or covered up and hidden and "just for you".

It certainly is an old art form for instance the Mauri sp? tribes in New Zealand have elaborate tatoos even on their faces even the woman have them.In Japan it was also art. Many cultures have some way of permanantly decorating themselves. Im sure it was the sailors of old times picked up the art in their travels and of course people in the military also. Its interesting I would love to learn more. By the way its alot less painful now a days as the old method is I think a is sharp bone or tooth and they go around tou body basically tapping in with a sort of hammer.Very painful and the danger of infection enormous.
I will hafto remember a move I saw once.

it goes back long before that too. They have turned up frozen ice mummy's with tattoos, and once studied, the tattooed areas corresponded with the exact areas that they still use to this day in regards to acupuncture.

acupuncture does. I used to go for carpo and tennis elbow. Worked wonders.
