Tattoo by Maxjia Tattoo by Maxjia
I had this tattoo drawn on my hand for about a week during the summer. I got the weirdest looks from my co-workers. They totally tought it was a real tattoo.

I am so happy how this tattoo came out. It was supposed to be something totally different at first, but it's a bit different drawing on skin then paper so my pen kept running off in weird directions and gave me a spontaneous design. I ended up really loving it.

My office was pretty cold due to too much airconditioning, so my palm didn't sweat. Plus I was doing computer work. The only time it would fade was when I washed my hands. I think I retouched it maybe only twice within the whole week. It was looking more and more real as it was fading.

This is a really good tattoo design..


It would actually be a terrible idea to get in that spot but it looks hot!

Thank you very much.

Oh I would never put it there. It was just easy to draw.
In the meantime I decided to pierce my ears instead of the tattoo. So I don't think I'll ever get a tattoo anymore. As much as I love them the whole permanent issue stops me. =P

I love my tattoo personally..
I don't think permanence is a problem
as long as its something you'll
be proud of for ever!
I need to pierce my ears again..

Yeah I am too indecisive. I could never pick a design and stick with it for the rest of my life. That's why I like piercing. I can change the earrings as much as I want.
What's your tattoo?

thanks.. I was working on the design for sometime, trying to get all the elements in there.. like the rose, and sword, and one particular swirly that draw with the "pride" pics..
I'm very proud of how it came out though!

xD I'm going to ask you a silly question. Do you mind if I stole the design to add to one of my work-in-progress tattoo's?
It won't be by itself, it'll be in with a bunch of other designs.
Pleeeeeease?

Well I feel flattered. Is this something you are tattooing on yourself? Sure use it, but if you are posting it somewhere I would like you to at least say you got inspired from here.
Let me know how it turns out.

Thank you sooo much!

Haha, Thanks. Hopefully it'll come out as good as it looks right now. I'm getting the outline done in two weeks, and it'll be healed over in like 8 months xD
I'm so excited, and I can't thank you enough!

Thank you. Yeah skin is hard to draw on with just pen. real tattoos are a bit easier. But I'm not willing to have it that permanent.

Im not into permanent things too .. prefer henna but its hard to get a good quality henna around here... everyone is trying to sell you crap :D and you cant know until you test it ! Btw you should try doing some with henna (if you havent already) i think you have skills :P

Henna is too thick and most of the ones I have seen were all brownish. I haven't seen anything black. But maybe I should do some research on that. Thanks for the idea.

Thats the thing that im talking about ... bad quality henna gives bad results ( brownish for instance..) my last went gray....

I always did that sort of stuff back in high school. One day in class I was bored and had a box of crayola markers, and gave myself a sleeve from wrist to as far up my arm as I could see.

Yours looks better.

Thank you so much :D

I did that in elementary once. I did this wicked tattoo that combined thorns and a really gross cut. It looked so real that when I went to gym class and my teacher saw it she sent me to the nurse's office. She totally freaked out. I wish I could've taken a picture of that.

I'd like to freak out my family once and have a 'tattoo' on my arm.. see if they do anything. Then wash it off.
Reply
:iconmaxjia:
Maxjia Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2007
Haha, totally do it. I love experimenting like that.
Do a design with permament marker, then wash it off a little bit and draw over it again. It gives it that look as if the ink is under your skin.

Nice tip, sounds like something to do.

The plan would be I'd go to a friends house the night before and then when I came home my parents would freak.. since they wouldn't know.. then go to Christmas eve that night and freak out the family.
