I had them done when I was 16 and removed in my late 20s.  I also stopped wearing earrings altogether after having my own ears pierced three times.  It's one of those thing that fits who you are at one time and then later doesn't.  So, I really didn't want the tattoos anymore just like I couldn't be bothered to have an extra step of putting on earrings.

Life is a fluid thing and although you may really consider things before getting a tattoo, it doesn't mean that later you might not want to have it.  I was a bit young when I got mine and it just didn't fit me anymore.  The Snoopy one was not in a visible place but the other one was.  So when I had it removed I decided to axe Snoopy too.

Hey Lulu, can I ask did the removal leave a scar at all?

Definitely the top one.  Much more striking


Thanks for the opinions folks, and just so you know, I have gone back in and made a minor adjustment!
The PISCES symbol (the black bit) on the first (striking) idea now resembles the PISCES symbol of the second one, just involved a small tweak in photoshop!
I always preferred the look of the second PISCES symbol, but also preferred the first shark.... looks like steps are being made! lol

As for the tattoo's meaning something to the individual, I agree totally!
Both of mine so far have meaning to me!
The Jay and Bob tat was decided upon cos at the time I was working in a comic store, and reading the Smith / Clerks comics, and loved Jim Mahfoods artwork and Smith's films.
The '72' is the year of my birth, and I love the College Jersey font!
The 'BEAR' is in the same font cos I like it so much, and its my nickname (or one of them at least!).
This new one Im tinkering with, as previously mentioned, covers my love of sharks and my star sign!

As for the 'originality' of the artwork, so far this shark design has incorporated THREE different tattoo designs I found on the web, the water (i have removed a lot of stuff from it already though), the shark (which i have cleaned up somewhat) and the symbol. But it is merely a guide for my tattooist to draw up a NEW design from.
So essentially I will be getting an original design inked on my person!

People who decide to get tattooed form the 'instore catalogue' clearly lack imagination, and have put NO thought into the tattoo whatsoever!

This is a design I did ages ago for my next tattoo but I could never decide where I wanted it so I haven't had it yet and to be honest I don't think I will now.




Can't quite get the teeth right mind.

I'd like my shark to be a little more 'toothy' and menacing, rather than the cartoony thing I have at the moment... maybe the tattooist can come up with something....

I understand that people think that stars are a bit common because a lot of people have them.  To be perfectly honest, my star doesn;t have a special meaning behind it, I just always liked the shape of a star and wanted a tattoo of one.  That's why i choose to get it on the inside of my forearm, thinking it would make it more unique to me as not a lot of people have tattoos here.

I can guarentee one of the reason you wont tell people part of your idea is because you don't want criticism.
Not at all. I'd like to here people criticise my idea as that'll probably make me think about it even further before I actually get it done. And who knows, maybe the criticism I get may offer more to the tattoo than anything negative.

EDIT: Hell, this has made me realise I was a bit shy by not sharing it. Basically, its my name in Japanese Kanji characters going downwards, which represents my passion for Japanese culture and all things Japan. Imagine alongside these characters on either side a wing, on one side an angel wing, the other side a demon wing. The two wings representing the two sides to my personality, the light and the dark, heaven and hell, righetousness and temptation.

Your thoughts?

Seriously though, I'll share it when I've actually got it. No idea why, but I'm trying to keep it to myself. Perhaps I'm concerned about people stealing it

I reckon a tattoo should be about individuality. Again, not to criticise other people's tattoo's, but I don't know why everyone wants stars when pretty much everyone has them. Fair enough if it has good meaning behind it (for example my friend was going to have two stars if England won the world cup), that's cool.



To be honest with you, you are never going to find a tattoo that is completly individual. Someone on the forum is designing my next and again not a particularly individual thing but still I want to have my own twist on it and it will represent something personal. I got mine for a reason which is private (i.e i'll mention it to close friends but not blab it on a forum) and I plan to get more to represent other things, yeah I know stars are common but i've always liked them before the fad. And what you said up there well that is criticism... I can guarentee one of the reason you wont tell people part of your idea is because you don't want criticism.
I fully agree about having meaning behind them though.


I designed both of mine...

I have a tiny scar where Snoopys ear was colored in.  It took more hits of the lazer to do that section.  Otherwise, I have no remaining marks.

It depends on the type of tattoo (how much pigmentation is in it) and how big.  Also, my tatts cost around $900 to remove.  For ones like DJ has, it would cost thousands to have those removed and there would be a high chance of some scarring.  Maybe not bad, but some scarring.

Well I would say that the whole Japanese writing thing is a bit common, but I can tell that you have a genuine love for the culture so it makes it cooler. Plus, having the characters going down will make it look cooler I reckon. Have you had your name translated to see how long it is?

I'm not sure I like the idea of the wings. I see what you're saying about you're good and bad side, but everyone has these so I don't see it as that personal. Also, for me, the lack of complete symmetry would annoy me.

But it's you're design and your body, so do what you like. I've only said this because you specifically said you wanted criticism and advice.

Cheers, Castor. I appreciate your honesty and advice. As I've said its just an idea I've had that if I ever did have a tattoo that would be it. But in the future, who knows?

I'm not.  And very very tempted to put a large chunk of my recent tax rebate towards it.

I've wanted decent wings for a very long time - that's the best design I've seen.  It'll take ages to do though

As a result of this thread, and the fact that I've had a friend staying over the weekend who just happens to be a graphic designer,  I've asked him to design a tattoo.

We came up with this preliminary sketch today.



As I said,  I'm after something very geometric is shape.  I don't want it looking organic.  Obviously this is very rough (the tail needs simplifying for a start) but what do people think so far?

I've managed to figure out pretty much tatoo I want and need some opinions on the following please people:







It's basically my star sign which luckily isn't too bad but I can't decide on which version I like best. At the minute I'm preferring the third one but not 100% yet.

I'd go with the third one too.  It's just a bit more interesting.

Yup it's Taurus, thankfully there's not much in it as I didn't fancy anything to extravagent.
