So I have been thinking about getting a 2112 tattoo on my upper left bisect and a Somewhere in time Eddie on my right. Just wondering if any of you have a tattoo. It is my first time getting this done, so yeah, I'm nervous as fuk. Can you guys tell me your experience with your first tattoo, and if you don't, fuck it, just give me your ideas on tattoos in general, like if you like them as art, or do you think they are just plain stupid.

I think they're almost always a pretty bad decision. Very few actually look cool and no tattoo in history has ever looked good on a woman.:barf:

Shut the fuck up. You have no clue what the hell you're talking about. I've seen plenty of tattoos that look not only great but VERY sexy on a women. You just probably haven't seen the right ones, broseph.

Thats fuckin' awesome man! I remember when I was at a metal show and I saw the Mummy Eddie tattoed on this girls right shoulder, pretty fucking awesome. More power to you man, I think tattoos are great because they're a way for people to express them selves be it anything, music, art, their love for anything, ect. I only have one Tattoo. I have the Slayer Eagle tattoo'd on my right leg(the Eagle as well as the bands name in full detail). Let me tell you El Turtle man, THE SHIT HURT LIKE A FUCKING BITCH. I couldn't stop bleeding on my right leg for a good month or so. Pretty painful experience. It feels like a really really hot burning knife is just stabbing into your skin for 6-8 hours(depends on how long you're there and how long your tat takes). I'd say the only thing that sucks about tattoos is the healing process and getting them. But once the final touches are made....you're good to go.

I definitely give you props if you're really trying to get a somewhere in time eddie tattooed on your body. There's nothing more awesome than showing your love for something that you enjoy immensely by having it plastured on your body and representing the love for your favorite band. Fuck the negative comments, More power to you. Hope you get the tat that you want.

AND ALSO! Make sure you try and bargain with as much tat shops as much as you can. Go door to door. That's how it usually works. Say one guy wants to do your tat for say....400?...Go to the next shop tell em about the previous guy you went to and they will lower it to 300-350, then OFF to the next shop...keep doing that untill you find the Perfect one. I remember I went shop after shop. Some wanted to do my tattoo for 500, 600, 400, 300 I finally found a person who did it for 190. There's my 2 cents for ya.

I had this done back in summer of 2009.

I really wanna get the Powerslave Eddie on one arm and the Blast Tyrant dude on the other. Since, like, my favorite album by my two favorite bands both has a dude on a throne on the cover. Sick, right?

Used to think tattoos needed to have meanings but I know too much stupid white trash with loved ones' names and their kids' footprints and dumbass bullshit like that so now I'm strictly going for "looks cool and is a thing I like" if I do decide to get one/several.

I was going to get my first one done last week, but my buddy who was going to hook me up went out of town for two weeks. In a week or so I'm going to get Bad Religion's anticross on my right hand shoulder. I have a few others planned out too. I'm going to get Hank III's executioner on my upper right arm, a little modified with the Murder Junkies syringe and knife going through it. Then on my lower left arm a banjo and the Saint Vitus "V" is going right below the banjo on my wrist. The "V" works two ways for me cause those songs seriously helped me through some shit and I can always say its V for vegan haha.

I have 11 and I'm getting #12 this weekend. It's been two years since my last one. I only have one metal tattoo. The slayer logo with black flames around it. I've posted it on here before.

Got my first one 18 years ago and still have no regrets about any of them.

I imagine I've seen the same amount as anyone else has. At best they're a mild detraction and at worst they ruin the girls looks nearly completely. The girl I was hooking up with last year had two tattoos... we were just friends not too long after I saw both of them.

done in 2003 after 3 Maiden shows in 4 nights. It hurted for the first 10 minutes maybe and after that only for the bigger lines. I want a have it refreshed soon. It still miss the strings and the fire in Eddie's hand.

I have two.

My first one was the Soufly symbol on my right forearm, not to represent the band, but more so the meaning behind the name and meaning of the symbol.

My second tattoo is a Viking head up on my left bicep. Same one from the Ensiferum hoodie, but modified a bit.

Going to be getting a Thor's Hammer next, not sure where to put it though, either middle of upper back or somewhere on left arm, maybe even leg.

Damn, I'm at work so I can't really see any of the pics you guys posted. Will get to those later.

As for me, my whole thing is the pain factor, and choosing an artist that won't fuck it up. Not worried about the 2112 tat, but the Eddie one would be a lot harder to do. I don't want Eddie looking like a fucked up chimp.

I understand not liking it when a chick is covered in tattoos, I don't like that either, but one or two well-placed tattoos can be sexy as fuck. My wife, long before she was my wife told me she was getting a tattoo... I kinda groaned and thought that it was gonna be a turn-off. Totally wrong. She got a scorpion on her ribs on the right side. Fucking wicked.

Anyways, as for the original topic, I have no tattoos, but have always toyed with the idea of getting the Overkill skull logo or the Blackhawks tomahawk logo. Neither will probably ever happen, but that's my two cents.

Thanks man. The first day took about 6-7 hours. Then I had to come back in a month or so to let my leg heal up, and then came back to get the finishing touches patched up. The 2nd round took about 3-4 hours. Hurt like a mother fucker.

Some chicks can pull tattoos off, some can't IMO.

My 1st tattoo was of my high school football team's helmet logo on my right arm. I don't regret it all. I do think some people get stupid tattoos. I think of it this way: Think about how you're going to feel about the tattoo when you're 60. Obviously, it's probably not going to look good, but will it be something you will still be "proud" of, will still "have meaning" to you?

Im getting the pantera CFH logo on my left shoulder this Summer, then a purple butterfly with musical notes coming out of its wings maybe during the Summer. both are tattoos which have enormous sentimental meaning t me, and I'm a guy who has alot of love for memories, so if nothing else they will serve as a reminder of what PanterA meant to me and what not!

You're 15? I remember when I was 15, I thought Metallica was the greatest band in existance and listened to them almost constantly. 5 years later, I really don't care that much for Metallica. If I had a Metallica tattoo then, I would probably regret it now.

That being said, just realize that although you might think that the band you get a tattoo of is great now, at such an age, you might feel completely different about it 10 or 15 years later. Tool is definitely a band I would be proud to have a tattoo of, and an Iron Maiden or Slayer tattoo (thanks sep69) is always acceptable.

Just be sure of the band you get it of. Power metal is also always encouraged ;)

I think I was at that stage you were with Metallica a few years back with Slipknot. I don't listen to Tool constantly(same with Deftones) and think they are the best band ever. They are just my personal favorite band. But I know, maybe I won't like them as much in 5 years. I don't plan on getting a tattoo anytime soon, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see. And I agree with the Iron Maiden and Slayer tattoo as well, though I don't think I'd ever get a Maiden tattoo, I would get a Slayer one any day.

Also is it just me or is this tattoo really awesome....

I have the Primordial stag head on my right shoulder. They're not my absolute favorite band, but have been in my Top 5 for a number of years now. Alan's always mentioning on stage about how some music still comes from the heart, plus stags can symbolize strength and standing your ground, so it seemed like the best option for me since it didn't just have to be about me being a big fan of the band.

Not really. I think it depends on how long you have been listening to the band, what that band means to you, and your histroy with the band, whether it be going to far lenths to see them, or other examples. These tattoos are not a spur of the moment thing for me that's for sure.

True. But I really love Tool and the Artist is my favorite for sure. I really love Tool's artwork. I would pay a shit load if I could get the artist to make an original peace for my tattoo, but other than the fact that would never happen, I really would like to show my love for Tool and they mean a lot to me(The person who showed them to me died a few years ago). They changed my views on music as a whole. So who cares if you become "that guy". It shouldn't matter. If it means a lot to you, like it does to me, it shouldn't matter.
The only problem with tattoos though is that my parents fucking despise tattoos(well more so my mom... damn persians).

Pretty sure I'm gonna get the Evergrey "clan" logo come my birthday this fall. They have been one of my favorite bands for almost 7 years now, which is pretty damn concrete, despite what else may have changed in that time. And even if I reach a day where I don't love/appreciate them like I do now (and have since 2004), they will have still been such a huge part of my life for so many years, and their music will have meant so much to me over that time, it's had a permanent effect on me.

http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/129/l_a4f01126988b48ed9b949f8741fe27ff.jpg

It would just be the symbol itself, not the background/circle around it. Probably just in black. My birthday is 11 days before I will finally see them for the first time, so the timing couldn't be better.

Got my newest tattoo last night. A sugar skull with a dagger and roses on the left side of my chest. Forgot just how bad they hurt on that part of the body. Especially on the collar-bone and the breast-bone. Then there's a whole other level of pain when being tattooed near the nipple. :hecho:

Just got the outline last night. Mid-May scheduled for the shading. Pics in a bit when it heals, if anyone cares.

Eh, i would personally never get text of a band name tattooed on me, i just feel that would be too much like turning myself into a billboard.


but for those of you who arent me, go for what makes you happy!

This is why I don't like band LOGOS as tattoos, because it really does seem like just a billboard/advertisement for the band. But getting symbols/artwork to represent a band that means enough to you is definitely cool in my book.

I can definitely agree with this. More of a personal preference though, as I don't judge what goes on with other people.

Tattoos wouldn't really suit me at all... But if I was going to get one band related, I'd probably go Mastodon, The Sword, or Ensiferum. Ensiferum has been my favourite band since I was like 12, and I love all of their music and artwork. Power/fantasy stuff is a huuuge part of my music library (and books, movies, videogames as well). On the other side is more old-school stuff, and The Sword fit perfectly there. Their lyrics are some of the best ever, and their artwork is always incredible. Same with Mastodon. Definitely not my favourite band in the world, but I still remember them putting on one of the greatest live shows I've ever seen, and their artwork is always incredible. Big fan of their message/lyrical content as well.

Actually, that has been in my mind for a very long time. But I would get artwork of Crack the Skye because it's helped me through so much and I really love the album. I envy all of you who saw it in its entirety. I have never even seen Mastodon(other than Mayhem 08, but that doesnt count).

Blood Mountain is my favorite album of all time. Personally, I like the cover, but I don't love it enough to get tattoed on me. I am highly considering getting a tattoo of the Remisson cover though.

Definitely wouldn't regret it, because the art is awesome and I love that track title. If I do it I'm not going to get the band logo, just the art.

I need some ideas. I want to get a Thor's Hammer as my next tattoo, but I cannot decide where to put it. I was want it to be on my left arm with the rest of my viking tattoos, but I dunno a place where it'll look good. Another idea was to get it on my back. Center on top or on the shoulder.

Here is what I have right now

The second tattoo of the sword. Move your arm around and do the hammer on the other side of arm.

You obviously get it on your dominant hand to represent the might of Thor.

This bumped thread reminds me that I'm getting a small tattoo done on Friday, April 13th at a small shop in Scottsdale. Every Friday the 13th, they do ink for only $13 as long as it fits in a 2x2 (or 2.5x2.5) box, I'm thinking I'm gonna get the STYG logo for now and then add lyrics at a later time.

Cheap tattoo's = a no no. But that's just me.

Well normally I would agree, but the way I found out about this place was through a girl who came into work while I was working. I noticed she had this well done koi fish on her arm and she told me she got it done at the place on that day.

Unfortunately I am ambidextrous :tongue:
I'll probably go with upper arm on the opposite arm, like my Viking.

Sorry for the horrible quality, just woke up and decided to snap a quick one, it's obviously still healing too, so yeah!
Definitely going to put some more on it. My artist was thinking maybe rocking a pentagram behind the hammer :D

I haven't got one myself (yet?), but I do like tattoo's (but not TOO many) on girls/women.

I don't usually like tattoos, but that is fucking awesome. :rocker: I love viking mythology and symbology.

Saw a guy at my roller derby bout last night with Taco Bell tattooed on his knuckles....hahaha

I choked laughing. I really, honestly did.

On the topic of the thread though, I'm considering getting a Celtic Frost tattoo with the lyrics from the spoken word section of Ain Elohim on my left ankle...or a Nile tattoo with either the woman holding the snake on the cover of Worship the Animal or the cobra...wing...scarab...thing from the cover of Annihilation of the Wicked.

I was going to get my first one done last week, but my buddy who was going to hook me up went out of town for two weeks. In a week or so I'm going to get Bad Religion's anticross on my right hand shoulder. I have a few others planned out too. I'm going to get Hank III's executioner on my upper right arm, a little modified with the Murder Junkies syringe and knife going through it. Then on my lower left arm a banjo and the Saint Vitus "V" is going right below the banjo on my wrist. The "V" works two ways for me cause those songs seriously helped me through some shit and I can always say its V for vegan haha.

So did you get that Vitus tattoo? :lol:

Anyway, I seem to have romanticized the notion of having a tattoo... (After all, the body is merely an empty vessel for the Self - so why not paint it with something meaningful?)

I'm thinking of getting my boy's names on my left forearm. But I'm trying to get it in a more "metal" font and making it a little harder to read. I'm thinking of aping Suffocations logo but making the letters bleed more into one another, and having one name on top of the other wrapping around the whole forearm. My older sons name is longer so I may let the last letter rest on my hand.

Cost is the big issue now. I work construction, so I could give a fuck about ever getting an office job.

I just got this done last month. It's my sons names; Ashton (3) and Logan (1) I took Suffocations iconic font (http://en.nbtouring.com/sites/default/files/artist/presse/Suffocation%20-%20Logo.jpg), had my wife do some computer stuff with it to make the letters in my son's names that weren't in the word suffocation and here we go. The template looks so much larger on the right to compensate for the shape of my arm (the 'n's are at the wrist).
