No regrets...

I've got tattoos on both shoulders (a series of 3 different Kanji symbols on my left shoulder and a Marvelous 3-styled Zippo on the right, after Cigarette Lighter Love song, which also happens to symbolize hair metal (balladry, anyway), so that's cool).

 

I absolutely love them. I wouldn't change a thing about them. I'd like more, but, being a teacher, don't want them protruding from beneath my sleeves at work (or anywhere, really, for that matter). So, since I don't know what area on my body will be the next "canvas", I'm holding off because, one day, should I marry and become a father, I think I'll want something like a tree w/ my wife and I and braches with my children or something family oriented. Because, though would be the most special thing in the world to me and definitely worthy of a permanent art job.

 

BTW, last check, there were just over 25% of respondents to the poll who had tattoos. (Only Terry, Pete, and I provided pictures of artwork, though.)

 

Artwork pics, if anyone's interested.

I don't have any, but as I mentioned in another thread, my best mate got a Tattoo when he split from his wife, symbolizing the "two biggest mistakes he ever made in his life"... one being his wife, who he got back together with about 3 months later. :lol: Poor bastard. The tat probably has a different meaning now. I don't think he regrets it.

I love mine. Can't wait to add to the never ending sleeve!!! Thanks for the shout out Jay. Seeing that thread reminds me to get better pix taken the upper stuff looks great...

 

No problemo, man. I'm jealous. I don't know, teacher or not, that I'd ever be able to get a sleeve. (For a variety of reasons, including, patience, money, and desirability.) But I think it's cool as hell for the people can/want to do that. I can't imagine how cool it would be to try to find the right piece, not only in meaning, but look, to go with everything else. I know how much fun I had just in getting/designing few.

I have a guitar and rock and roll on my left forearm inner, a huge dragon on my left upper arm and a bunch of tribal, roses, and other stuff on my right upper arm, I kinda wish I never got em,then some days when I am playing out in a band or at a concert, I love em--hehehehe I always wear long sleeve shirts since I am a teacher, they look fine, just wish I maybe would of waited, I got them all in my teens and since retouched and added other stuff to them.

I have 2 (at the moment) a Tribal design on my left upper arm and an Ambigram design (writing you can read upside down and back to front) taken from the book 'Angels & Demons' on my left upper arm. I probably will get another sometime, If it is something I really like like. No regrets at all - love both of 'em.

Damn fine book and the ambigrams were awesome. So do you have earth, fire, water, or air? Or is it an ambigram of something else?

The top design - All of it!!.

 

Very cool.

 

 

I got it done on my birthday this year. The artist did a really good job, so I am very pleased with it, He said that it was the first time he had done this design or any Ambigram. I don't go around showing it off, but if people do see it (especially on holiday this year) they all really like the design.

I have no tattoos, but was considering something like that. That or maybe a huge green lizard crawling up the back of my leg.

I was thinking something more like a detailed version of the Sobe lizard covering the whole back of my calf with the tail wrapped around to the front of my leg.

I have 0 and will keep it that way. I have a very strong dislike for them. I've never seen a tattoo that made me go "wow, that is awesome" or "wow, that is cute / sexy". They just don't do anything for me.

I think it is one of those things you like or you don't, not much middle ground

I have 4, 2 on each leg. One is a wolf breaking out of my skin and one is of my dog. Those are the latest. The other 2 is the NY Islanders logo and the evil pumpkin from the "Hey Lord" song from "Better Than Raw". I don't regret any but I am going to make the Islanders one bigger.

Here's the one of the wolf:

    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
