    I treated myself to an early birthday present and got myself a tattoo of (you guessed it) a bass clef! Here are the before and after pictures:

    I dig!

    They are addicting though, and Im already anxiously waiting the next inspirational idea that I have to put on my skin.

    One that I think would be great If I knew someone had the skill to do would be a full backpiece of one of Dali's artworks in a fram and all.

    Peace

    The one I had done on my chest hurt more than the others by far... And the fun part was that it went all accupuncture-like and made my left hand's fingers twitch gently but uncontrollably for most of it! :eek:

    Don't scratch it! ;)

    Tattoos are way fun and very addictive. I used to pierce professionally, and lucked into free ones at the shop I used to work at.

    Imagestation seems to've eaten the pictures of mine, but I have a chinese dragon on my left arm (about to have an ukiyo-e samurai on the inside of that arm to complete the half-sleeve), and on my left arm I've got a large Paul Booth style green man.
     
  10. I was at my ME 270 exam last Monday, and as we were going into the lecture hall where the test was given, I saw somebody with a bass clef tattooed on the inside of their forearm. As the test was going to start soon and I had cramming to do, I didn't go down to talk to this guy. Was that anybody from TalkBass? (I go to Purdue).
     

  11. Melf Porn? :confused:

    Nice tat

    If you were in Gainesville and it was MUH4016 (Jazz History) that would have been me, but no.

    I actually had a guy aproach me after that class to invite me to jam. It went well so we'll see what happens next. I also ran into fellow TBer LonelyJazzBass at the dinning hall when he recognized the tattoo, and have had a bunch of others comment on it.

    :D

  13. I love getting ink done. I have 5 and I just turned 20 a week ago. I have them all on my forearms. One is tribal band anround my wrist, I have another tribal symbol for bravery on the insde of my right forearm, another for war on the back of my left forearm, I have a ****ed up looking dude on my inner left forearm, and the most recent is a spinal cord that runs up the back of my right forearm on the bone from wrist to elbow. :bassist:

    What tribe are you from? :p :smug: ;)
     
  15. I'd be curous to know the percentage of TB'ers (or bass players) who have a bass clef tattoo...

    I got mine on my right leg, BTW...

    I don't have one yet, but I'm considering this.

    I ripped it off of someone's avatar, and now I can't remember who it was! I think its awesome and would be an awesome tat.

    That has me curious-it wasn't me, but i live just across the bridge over by LUM {only house across the street} if you are ever on that side of the river.

    Original thread. I've been thinking about sometime after my 18th getting a bass clef on my right calf. I'd need to research it far more before i actually go through with it [along with getting the money].

    That's all
