Tattoo Cover Up

Submitted by Naomi V on Fri, 2014-05-30 13:30

Even the most careful of tattoo collectors may need a tattoo cover up at least once in their life. Sometimes we get our tattoos young and don't research the tattoo artists thoroughly enough. We may end up with a tattoo of a heart that looks more like a kidney bean. Or perhaps some of us have gotten a tattoo with our soul mates name on it, only later to find out that they WERE NOT our soul mate...in the slightest. Those rose colored glasses can be very dangerous to walk into a tattoo shop with, but hey, it happens! A tattoo cover up can be a true life saver.

Most of us know at least one person who has had breast cancer. Hopefully, the people we know that had it, survived it. Unfortunately, too many do not. It's no surprise that breast cancer tattoos are on the rise. These tattoos are becoming more popular as more awareness is being brought to the illness everyday. For some, the tattoo is a celebration of life and a triumph in fighting and winning. For others, breast cancer tattoos are a way of showing comittment to someone who is currently fighting, to prove their supporrt.

Eyebrow Tattoo

Submitted by Naomi V on Mon, 2014-05-19 22:08

Eyebrow Tattoos can look very normal or very startling depending on the type of eyebrow tattoo you get. The common and even unnoticeable eyebrow tattoo is the kind that women get as permanent makeup. These are tattoos that women get when they're eyebrows start to thin, and they are tired of filling in the eyebrow shape with makeup. These kinds of tattoos can be done in many makeup studios, as well as tattoo studios. Some permanent tattoos are less common looking, as the wearer may choose to make them extra thick or extra arched. We've all seen these lists floating around the internet.

Hip Tattoos

Hip tattoos are becoming more steadily popular, and for good reason. The hip is a large area of real estate on the human body, so most of your tattoo fantasies can be created on this space. Some hip tattoos extend into the thigh or upwards, into the ribs and chest. The types of designs one can choose to get on the hip are limitless, from a feminine floral design to an epic battle of good and evil. Any style of tattoo is great for this part of the body. The hip can be chosen to accentuate the body, especially for women, as the hip can be considered a very sensual part of the body.

Who doesn't love girly tattoos? There is such a wide range of what one could consider girly. From classic damsel in distress, all in pink, girly-girly, to badass, roller derby chick, edgy kind of girly.

Let's talk about the more commonly seen girly tattoos among ink lovin' women!

Ankle Tattoos

Submitted by Naomi V on Wed, 2014-05-07 23:41

Ankle tattoos are a lovely place for girls to get some ink. The ankle is an elegant part of the female body, perfect for a feminine design. Because the ankle is a smaller part of the body, a smaller design should be selected. Don't worry, that still gives the wearer tons of options for this spot! It is also a wonderful spot to get tattooed if it is your first tattoo. It's less painful than other areas, and this part of the body doesn't change as much as other spots, such as the stomach or the thighs. Here are some ideas for ankle tattoos:

What he sent are a number of sketches in various stages from rough concept to final color.

A Tattoo Love Story

Submitted by Jodie Michalak on Thu, 2014-02-13 12:11

Do you believe in love at first sight? Sure it can happen. While generally considered a rare event as it does not happen to everyone, it still happens.  Some people are lucky enough to have experienced the butterflies, excitement and often jaw-dropping unexplainable emotion of falling head over heels. Others have not experienced love at first sight, and they may never. They simply got what they got and that will have to be good enough (at least for now).
