Man, I been lucky ... the cover ups I had done came out pretty damn good .... can't really see it .. all my tats are back and grey except for one that was a cover-up and he had to use some color to blend it out ... The guy I use now is really thin lines and lots of detail ... and then you have some artists which are about the thick type of lines ... looking to blend in my arms soon for the sleeve look ... its getting there
Maori tattoos have been practiced for over a thousand years, and it has a sacred significance. Maoris are the original inhabitants of New Zealand, known to them as Aotearoa or the land of the long white cloud. Ta moko (literally meaning to strike or tap) was used as a form of identification, rank, genealogy, tribal history, eligibility to marry, and marks of beauty or ferocity. Also in Samoan, Japan and etc. Everything comes with Respect of Yourself, the symbols has 'power' - in some way it will represent you or empower your" , - just my perception.
This is good movie trailer:
I've watched this type of tattoo being done. Takes real nerve. :))
HUGE amounts of sound advice....yeehaah! I tried out a version of my tattoo in henna first & made slight changes to the design for the real thing... 0:-D ....LOVING the Buddha tattoo!
I really like tattoos....when they are good ones....and the answer is yes they raise your frequency when you get spiritual ones. Some of the spiritual artists design tattoos for this reason. But, when you get tattoos it causes trauma to the body,,,shock from all the needles. To avoid the trauma my you can use a homeopathic medicine......ARNICA....200C..(this is the potency you want ) . Just take 1 of these pillls right before the tattoo session and you won´t get the trauma.....easy,,and it works..
This is also important for all of you who have tattoos from the past...just take ARNICA::::200C...and release this trauma from the past,,,you will feel a lot better......it is a stress release thing. My friends all have lotsa big tats and so I do a stress release for them with the arnica...
Yes, I like tattoos a lot and think they are a good idea,,,,just be sure to release the trauma... no big deal.
ABSOLUTELY agree....Arnica...for the bruising, trauma & shock.....Works every time!!! Calendula lotion or cream (For cuts , sores, abrasions) is wonderful to assist the healing process. Natures goodness in the form of plant medicine....
For those who got tattoos years back....you won´t even know that you have this trauma because it is just an everyday thing under the surface...but, if you release it you will feel better. The arnica works for some mental trauma as well as well as trauma from past injuries.....it is a good thing to take.
lol Probably because yahweh was a reptilian and couldn't get tattoos. Jealous I would say. :))
I would never voluntarily give my opinion on tattoos unless someone asked me. I support personal freedom in all and every way, so of course I respect anyone's right to choose to tattoo themselves or otherwise mutilate their body. I realize that there are cultures like the Maori of Pacific islands or other cultures who tattoo and scarify their bodies and in these instances I understand that these practices have deep meaning and cultural significance with roots in antiquity.
Having said that, I must confess that I don't find tattoos at all attractive. Just the opposite. It seems to me to be a meaningless violation to one's body, cheapening, shallow, and generally vulgar and immature. I understand that my opinion is liable to offend some, but you asked and so, please respect my honesty as I respect your right to choose to do something to your body that tends to make me wonder if there isn't some underlying mental health issue at work. Thank you for asking and if you do choose to tattoo, I hope you never regret.
as far as I know, they are not unhealth as long as you are havıng them in a proper tatoo studio...
just you have to think twice before having them as you will carry them with you whole your life...
I don't like tattoos...for me at least. My girlfriend has several tattoos...one on her thigh, her arm, she even has a half naked witch on her back lol I think it's sexy....but for me, I just don't see the need of getting a tattoo. I prefer to be, more natural. I don't know, I just wouldn't feel as mature or classy with a tattoo.
