    Tribal is never acceptable.

    I have a few ideas in mind. However they are not the most unique ideas ever and I have to work out how much I care about that, if at all.

    I love tatts. I even think the tribals are very cool LOOKING. But if I was going to have something permanently inked onto my skin, it would have to have some personal meaning. So I'm curious about those of you with tribal tatts: what made you select them, especially considering that they tend to take up a LOT of real estate?

    Tribal was pretty huge in the '90s, most artists I've met hate doing it, just because it is boring.

    I knew one artist who was kind of a dick about it, and would ask people "What tribe?" when they talked about getting tribal.

    Many people get tattoos just based on the appearance, not the meaning, not really anything wrong with that.

    I think script is the new "everybody has to do it" fad, tons of people getting lots of silly stuff (song lyrics, inspiration words or phrases, names), but not particularly artistic.

    Pretty much any script looks shit to be honest, almost as bad as tribal.

    Cullnerd's script tattoo plans go up in flames.

    So how bad should I feel having script on my chest and tribal running from shoulder blade to shoulder blade? (The tribal is formed into the shape of a hammerhead shark and done with the whole Polynesian style if it really matters.)

    It was more sarcastic than anything. I'm quite happy with both tattoos and still plan to get more.

    The only person who has a pic of it is the tattoo artist who did it. I've oddly got 0 photos of my tattoos. And no camera atm.

    So how are the costs of getting one of these things? How do you find a good tattoo artist?

    I want one shoulder to shoulder - would love a hawk or at least the wings, stylised - and maybe some sleeves after I build up sufficient muscle mass for them to look good - but I want good quality craftsmanship, colours that will not fade in time and also obviously not to get HIV or some other shit. The one on the back I'm p. sure will take a really long while to do, but I'm game with that, what I don't want to hear is oops or some other shit. Obviously willing to pay but not sure what the rates are and stuff, what is a good tattoo worth or how much do the consumables cost (needles, ink, etc).

    Cheers!

    For the piece on my back with roughly the same dimensions, I paid about $300 for 2 1/2 hours of work (this cost includes the cost of the consumables, every shop I've been to is like that though). Since you want to get coloring done, its going to take quite a bit longer and cost a good bit more. The best thing is to travel around, talk to different artists, check out their shops and talk to people who have been there. Word of mouth is king when looking for a tattoo artist. Every halfway decent artist should also have a book of their work showing their designs on actual human flesh, find the ones that feature the type of artwork you want, and examine it closely. As far as hygene, just look around, are there needles just sitting in guns not being used, is the shop cleaned to the level you would expect a doctor's office, are they throwing away the ink cups after using that color or are they putting the ink back into bottles. The last place I went to even handed me the bottles of ink and needles so I could inspect the packaging and see that it was still factory sealed.
