The all seeing eye has chanced across this little insight into the world of getting tattooed.

It’s by “Kassishappy” and come with this note:

the title pretty much says is all, this is aliyah my best friend getting tattooed by May from Freestyle Canberra, Australia.

What’s Your opinion?

Most people getting these tats aren’t doing it to be different, they’re doing it to be the same.

you’re right Cleo – if it truely means something to you then it will never be stupid. I have the names of loved ones around my ankle. Everyone just thinks its an anklet – you can’t see its a tat until you look closer. I love it though. It means so much to me and I am so glad I got it.

dodgyBoys Some people get tattoo’s for different reasons, I never liked tatts, but got one because my child passed away, it is very tastful, a butterfly and her name below, the tatt is on my ankle, I am proud of it, most people seem to do this under these circumstances.

A truly stupid thing to do. We are creating a generation of losers who think that a tattoo will make them unique. Along with the 1000’s of others who thought the same thing. Crazy.

Spoken by someone who desperately wants a tattoo but is scared of the pain.

May did my wrist. Was my first tattoo…was ok. She’s cool.
Her husband, Rush, did my sleeve. He’s the sh!t.

Pretty creative family =)

I got all my tatts 20 odd years ago when I was in the army. I don’t think they’re stupid.

Lugh at Tattoo power in Lyneham – AMAZING skills. Such clear lines! Love him – love my tat!

My husband has a lot of tattoos, done by various artists, and he believes that May is the best by far! She is currently working on a wrist to bicep piece for him and it has stood the test of time. Good lines, no distortion etc. He looked around Canberra and Freestyle was the best in his opinion.

May won Best tattooed chick NSW or something like that a couple of months a go. She has great tattoos, but does she do great tattoos? Does anyone have a tattoo by May? Can we see some pics?
I’m getting another tattoo soon in tuggers however am always on the lookout for good artists ( as is everyone getting ink I guess).

Yeah – this probably needs a different post, but I agree links to an image’d be nice to validate potentially biased or tasteless opinion.

here’s the most recent post on Canberra tats. My recommendation remains to go outside Canberra for anything that requires a high degree of artistry, but both Chrises (cashmore and rush) do solid work at their respective studios.

I’ve had a few tattoos done by Lucas at Freestyle and highly recommend him also!

Lyneham have a great tattooest, forget his name but he was tall red haired guy, I’m very happy with mine.
