Ok, I'm grossed out.

What the hell drives an attractive girl to do that to herself?

I asked myself that this morning when I read my emails.

It looks pretty awesome, but I would never get anything liek that. Looks pretty painful.

Are those chunks of flesh? Why is there so much flesh coming off?

I think it's not a tattoo... it's scarring. Fuck.

I believe that is scarification. There is no "flesh removal" in a tattoo.

And Stephan beat me to it.

Yeah, I think they just removed the skin where the bamboo is. And it left a scar.

I've no idea of what that is. I just think that's stupidity.

But it ends up looking just like a tattoo. Unless there's some sort of depth to it from the scarring that you just can't see in the pictures?

It seems like she wanted something "natural" instead of ink.

I believe Justin will find the same. =P

Yeah, the end result is pretty, but the process...oh dear, that fucking process...

I actually think it's pretty as well. I'd just prefer it done with ink *shrug*.

It doesn't look any better than a regular tattoo... and the red isn't a very nice color. I'd prefer better colors. Plus the scarring thing is just gross.

I totally threw up in my mouth a little.

Can you imagine that huge piece if she didn't take to it well? There is nothing pretty about keloid scars.

I don't think I could get any tattoos. Not because of the pain, but the retrospection. I'm afraid I'd get something that I'd think was cool, then 5 years later realize it was the lamest thing ever. Like, this kid I use to go to school with got a tattoo that said ''No Pain, No Game''

if I was getting a huge tattooo on my back I'd rather get it scarred in there like that. well not like that, but sorta. black just isn't natural I'd feel like someone drew on me with a sharpie.

Not if it's well done and well cared for. I'm getting another one on my right shoulderblade soon. Not going down my back because should I start popping out kids eventually, I don't want to pay that much money for something that's going to look ridiculous and stretched out for the rest of my life--which is what that piece would look like. Can you imagine it with stretchmarks? Would it even stretch, since scarred skin loses its elasticity?

I saw the other pictures from the link Ragdoll posted and I still don't get why people enjoy going through such pain. Not only when it's being done but also in the healing process. =0\

you don't have to get black. there is a whole array of colors you can get tattooed. And it's not blood colored. And if you really love that color, you can get that color tattooed, anyway.

I think it looks good, but skimming that link Sam provided has caused all the information to rush into my brain at once and it's like a train full of OMG just crashed into an WTF? factory and everyone's still in too much shock to start sorting it all out.

I was gonna say something along the lines of "I prefer my scars to be the result of near-death experiences." before my brain blew a fuse.

I think her main point was that scars are more natural than ink injected into the skin.

I know nothing about this "scarring" fad, but I'm wondering...they do numb you up beforehand, right? Local anaesthetic?

Because if not, bitch damn...!

Rag Doll

i'd imagine no, they dont.

I actually consider it less natural to strip away layers of skin that are meant to be your body's primary defense mechanism, than to add different colors to it.

Really? Growing up, I would often accidentally scrape off a few layers of the old epidermis while playing outside or tussling with my siblings. I've still got a couple scars lyin' around. I never once accidentally injected a permanent synthetic dye into my skin.

If they don't apply a local anesthetic , don't they run the risk of someone twitching and permanently scarring themselves? I mean, permanently scarring themselves in a way that doesn't look pretty.a

I've never heard of any kind of anesthetic being used with any body mods, except some surgical ones (unless the person getting it done requests it, then they may get a gel/spray). According to BME, scarification is supposedly on par with a tattoo when it comes to pain. Can't really say for sure, cause I've never had it, but BME is usually pretty accurate. And I'd say that risk can occur with a lot of body mods...cause if you move when you're getting a tattoo, you can fuck things up too.

Of course, that's true. But intentionally removing layers of skin, and a LOT of that skin, is definitely no more natural than adding ink.

I think the main issue here is that you and I are using different definitions of "natural". You seem to be using it as a synonym for "normal" in regards to human behavior, whereas I'm thinking of it to describe how far removed something is from a state of nature. The act of intentionally removing your own skin for aesthetic reasons may not necessarily be natural, but the end results certainly lead to a condition found commonly in nature.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't you the retarded fucking retard who got an Offspring skull tattoo, and therefore have no right to talk?

Oh fucking gross.

I think the end result looks pretty nice too though actually. Better than if it would have been black. But when I think about how it got there it loses all charm. Ugh.

point taken. that scar will look gnarly. what's your tattoo of?

I have nothing against body modification..if I wasnt such a wussy I'd get tattoos / piercings, but THAT (and tongue-splitting) is fucking retarded. I have no understanding for it.

It looks okay from the distance but since some parts are so wide it might not be so nice to look at from a close-up. And yeah, it's probably gonna get eww with age.

Llamas
12-06-2006, 03:12 AM
yeah, it looks pretty cool from a distance. The closer photo shows that it's kinda nasty, though. And oh man, if ink looks bad with time... scars are going to look disgusting.
