    I don't know where the line is drawn between self-expression and self-abuse, but DIY tatoo can't be far away. At least it's a smiley face; that should help avoid calls for physchiatric intervention.

    hows that self abuse

    That doesnt make sense, a tattoos a tattoo no matter how you do it, I'm doing the most primative way of doing it besides cutting my self and pouring ink in, India Ink is entierly non toxic if it is REAL india ink. If I didnt have India Ink I could use Ash or Berries

    Im CRAZY cause i did something I wanted to so what If I had put a >.< face it would mean im crazy? Im not even done, im going to get some color and make it a walmart smiley face

    Personally I hate having ink on my hands.
    ive got it more or less perminately on my hands from running printing presses.....generally its gone after a few showers but i rarely go more than a shower or two before getting my hands inky again......course this is only the rule when using my standard blanket wash......when cleaning certain parts of the machines i have to use lacquer thinner to removed dried ink......that thins it down REALLY good and really makes it easy to suck down deep into your pores....that stuff takes a lil longer to wear off......i can spend a half hour at the sink with any soap known o man and i cant get my hands clean

    I have been considering a tattoo, but since it is a rather permanent procedure I would consider it an investment, and have it done by someone who actually had a drawing ability to do something that I liked and was interesting. And it would be on my shoulder or something covered usually and not on my lower arm, because lets face it, often tattoos do not flatter after a certain age point. What is cool on you at 20 may not be at 40...
    that makes no logic

    Bah, such a square thing to say! lol!

    J/K

    I remember seeing old army guys (such as gramps) when I was a kid with the blob of green ink that used to be a tattoo of... something on their arm! The quality dark inks made nowadays don't do that spreading or the absorbing like the red did on me and virtually dissipate over time. Though sun is the enemy of red ink and it will erode the color basically no matter what you do. My 50 something uncle got a red dragon done pro at a shop where my cousins get theirs and all color is basically gone after a couple years going back and forth to Belize several times a year and working outdoors. The black outlines are still sharp however.

    Tats look a lot better when done by someone else other than the tattooist themselves (no matter the method employed) because of the procedure used when another person does it, the stencil application, the angle of approach by the needle/whale bone/etc. Somewhat akin to going to the dentist or doing your own dentistry, one's easy and one is hard! lol!

    As far as the "pain" so many people think of it's actually rather momentary leading to a transcendental experience where pain becomes only sensation and seemingly "unreal". it's hard to explain until you actually experience it I suppose. After it gets underway for a bit adrenaline (or similar) seems to take over and the pain becomes a numbing and "self anesthetizing". This is the "transcendent" part of it I suppose. Pain no longer becomes something to fear but something you know you can overcome (within reason obviously) I could say future pains seem to be actually reduced after such experiences.

    As far as it being "abusing" your fleshy temple goes, if we believe in freedom of choice of what people choose to do with their bodies sexually, I feel treating your body chemically or artistically is just another aspect of that same self freedom as it "harms' none but the one seeking the experince. The same guy I did the alien hands/baby on I also pierced his nipples (he blacked out on the first one lol) and another friends eyebrow, numerous noses and ears. Nowadays it's all rather fashionable I suppose.

    Incidentally Nep AK, ebay has awesome deals on machine kits! A two machine setup for like $250 with shipping and most necessary start up goodies, as well as (make a note of this) Silicone Skins to practice on. I think 3 packs go for $9. Way better than practicing on yourself or the old standby (the grapefruit).

    If I was going to get one, I'd get the Valnott.

    Those of the Àsatru religion who have dedicated their lives to Odin favor the Valnott. The Valnott or "death knot", the triple triangle shown below, is one of Odin's symbols. Odin's followers have a tendancy to die violently, so wear this symbol at your own risk! I do not recommend this symbol as a tattoo and include it here primarily as a warning.

    No eh, "sunwheel"? lol!

    I just mean be extra vigilant in researching who else is using the Teutonic symbolism if you don't wanna be associated with certain political affiliations. I think RAHOWA (RAcial HOly WAr) band/magazine uses the 9 triangles IIRC. I caused a Goth girl I know to throw away her Current 93 teeshirt cos I pointed out the design on it was the nazi's Totenkopf (death's head) sigil. I didn't intend for such drastic consequences for her wardrobe, I just thought she should know.

    I remember doing an interview with Thor on my 23rd birthday, he was one of the original "over the top" rockers who used viking/Asatru imagery and lyrics (starting in 1978). He had just reformed for a new record and tour and was doing press for the CD reissues of the old LPs Thunder on the Tundra, Unchained, etc. and I started telling him about today's neo-nazi/pagan metal bands such as Nastrond, Burzum, Graveland, etc. who are using the Asatru symbolism and viking mythos for purposes other than enjoyment of symbolism and history and use it to promote hate. He was quite shocked to learn of it to say the least.
