Neither did I! Do you think its real? It looks like part has rubbed off?

Wow Mwl - I love it! So simple, but so right!


Thanks, Kelda!  :-* The tattoo artist first put it with its head facing the top of my arm and it just wasn't right. I'm so glad I had my best friend with me, she told the man it didn't look right, so he put it the other way around and then started tattooing...  :D

That Jake tattoo isn't real, it could be for "Brothers", just like the fake tattoo in his neck.

I guess it's fake.  We would have noticed something that big before now with all the topless shots we have of Jake over on the Jake, Jake, Jake thread.  ;D

I got forwarded this from a friend (an ex actually) and the title said 'pork scratcings anyone?'

Warning - if you've got a weak stomoch you may not like seeing this.. its pretty graphic.

I'm going to put the finished product first and then get to the actual getting it done photos. So in reverse order to I saw them.....

Its something called 'scarification'.

This is a beautoful design on the girls back but by god I think shes mad - and I'm sure it can't be good for you.

Kelda, what is that stuff laying on the blue blanket? Is that her flesh?

This looks like self mutilation to me. You're right though, the final result is quite beautiful.

The end result does look nice...at least in that picture. I wonder how it will look over time?

Here I am agonizing over a little leaf tattoo and people are scraping off entire chunks of their backs...okay....to each their own, I suppose. I can't imagine it, myself...

Why didn't she just get a tattoo of the bamboo? That would have been quite pretty, this is just plain sick!

I believe scarification is a time-honored tradition in some African/Polynesian/South Pacific cultures.

Ewwwwwwwwwww...the worm-like skin peelings were icky to look at, but it's just skin.

Just another 'tribal' self-expression. 

Yeah, it may not look great when she's 60, but neither will tattoos.
