On Tattoos

Posted in Look tagged , , at 7:35 pm by onetinyacorn

Like many people in this day and age, I’m obsessed with tattoos. I was a tattoo apprentice for a while back in 2004 or so, but circumstances made me stop mid-way through my apprenticeship and I haven’t found a suitable place to pick the trade up again. Nowadays, I sate my desire by perusing tattoo art sites since I don’t have the cash flow to add to my body art.

What is my favorite site for such purposes? Oh, I’m so glad you asked. http://fyeahtattoos.com/ is my new favorite. There’s a large amount of great work, owing to the fact that each submission is vetted first. Many people include the stories behind their tattoo, if you’re into that (I tend to like art for art’s sake, but that’s an unfashionable response. People are now expected to have elaborate reasons for their tattoos, as if beauty isn’t enough). As a bonus, there’s no superfluous nudity. I hate tattoo sites that look like all the submitters are trying to build up their Suicide Girls portfolio. I’m here to see the tattoos, dammit.
