For those interested, the design represents the Hounds of Ulster. The story is in the link below. The hounds are also said to guard te gates of the Afterworld. The pattern here, used in many designs, represents the circle of life and, more specifically, 'what comes around goes around'.

Remember the mid-late 80's mustangs, with the "5.0" badge on the side? I remember some jackass at my gym a while ago that had that tatooed on his arm. I bet the women were fighting over that winner.

Anyway, I don't have any tatooes, but if I did, I'd get something that really kicks ass.

Like a naked chick, or a washer/dryer set tatooed across my back.

i like that. a washer-dryer set. it has a certain, je ne sais quoi to it.



Sugar, the design you posted is really amazing - it's always neat to know the story behind a tattoo.



dlk - i wasn't even allowed to have pierced ears while i lived with the hamburgers. body decoration was definitely something i had to wait to do til i was fully independent.

Tatoo? I thought that such a feature was relevant only for teenagers, Polynesians (as a tribal tradition) and criminals.

Do you guys think Chinese kids get American letters tatooed on their body?

American letters? Are the Latin letters replaced in the USA with some other ones?

Since a lot of the chinese drop-off kids here wear shirts with very odd english phrases on them, i wouldn't be surprised if their tattoos are in english cursive.

i'm still mulling on that washer and dryer set. i've always wanted a man with appliances.

steissd - tattoing, body piercing etc is reasonably common in middle-class north america. nothing to do with age or criminal records. one of the young women at work came in today with those BIIIIIIIIIG holes in her ears - the kind you can really see through. Like i said before, i work in a conservative industry - barely anyone blinked when they realized they could see through her ears.

I had an itch to get another tattoo for years, it went away (mostly) until I went with Q to get hers done. Then Beth got one.... NOW, Beth sends me to this website with thousands of tattoos.... oy.

Hmm, it is very strange that the middle-class North American people make such experiments with their bodies. Fashions change, and some day tatoos may be considered being not so "cool"; but it is much more difficult to remove them than to change the style of garments.

Cool has nothing to do with it, steissd. Or at least for me it doesn't. I wanted a tattoo when it wasn't cool, wanted one when it was, wanted one when it was uncool again. Kinda like vests. I always like them, and wear them, whether or not they are cool.

The year i turned 30 I had my head shaved. It was something I'd always wanted to do (I'd actually tried once before, but luckily the barber in the train station didn't understand my accent that year) and it was my gift to myself that year. That definitely wasn't about cool. It was a very freeing thing. I'm glad I did it. I don't plan to do it again and wouldn't tell anyone else to do it, but i'd support their right to do it.

ehbeth, I agree totally. It has nothing to do with cool. BTW, it's the same here in Germany - not only North America. And given the fact that the tattoos will not just go away and there are so many people who have them they will just turn into something more or less normal - as I think they almost already are. It's not like in ten years suddenly I will be the only with tattoos. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. It's Sunday morning and I haven't had any coffee yet...
