Do you think she would mind if I hang her on my wall?

I got a spot in the lounge room above the TV 🙂

I just laugh about tatts these days. When I got mine the only people who had them were criminals, sailors and soldiers.

I have never been a criminal or a sailor…

Oh yeah, I remember when they invented dinosaurs… 😉

Ms Cheung’s first tattoo was done when she was 14, according to the link – and it doesn’t sound like a home-made one. I wonder whether it was a local tattoo parlour that broke the law there.

Local as in Qbyn? If so she would need a letter from her parents to keep it within the law.
“A bunch of stars on her shoulder” is not the best description of a good / bad tattoo either. I reckon **** on someones shoulder could look pretty average.

@miss villain

We are not being done for copyright as you cannot copyright someone arranging a pageant. If so, miss world australia, miss earth australia etc etc, would all be suing each other.

We have awesome sponsors, 4 bands performing, special guest judges, amazing prizes, and a special burlesque performance.

We have 251 confirmed to attend and 346 maybes, as of today. The night is sure to be a hit!!!

Miss May….. Congrats on your win and amazing ink… I’m actually looking for similar work. I am looking at Josh Roelink but have a two yr wait to see him, Who done the work on your arms??? If you could please help me it would be greatly appreciated. Once again congrats. I think your are gorgeous and a well deserved win:)

I reckon I saw May in Civic DJs yesterday. Her significant other was also a bit of a sketch pad by the looks.

They looked happy. 🙂

OP = Original Post (or variations with similar meaning).

Still a believer in the job killer tattoo though…. I suspect that when you work as a tattoo artist, there really isn’t such a think. Except maybe bad tattoos, that wouldn’t be good advertising.

Congrats on your win May.

hmm – sorry what’s OP??

thanks though 🙂

Baaahhhaaa.. Love all these people going on about REGRET… We are not talking about a rose tattoo on a boob here.

Miss May had no signs of regret when showing off her art at the pageant on Sunday, She showed it to us judges with confidence and a fun and sexy attitude.

Soo much thought goes into the design of your sleeve.. This can take make years of personal experience to make up what you want to represent on your canvas… Not only that but picking your tattooist.. Miss May is wearing some work from some amazing artist from Overseas.. And also the money.. It cost thousands and thousands of dollars to have to work that May has..

Plus in this day and age where the stigma attached to the industry of men and women with tattoos are either bikers, in the navy or crims is OVER AND OUT.. LIVE IN THE NOW PEOPLES…

KUSTOM KULTURE.. – get involved..

As as for being old.. We are the majority us tattooed folk so we can all compare wrinkled tattoos together.. YEW..

We are only in this skin for 1 life, who knows what we will be in the one after this..

May is a tattooist herself I think. I like tattoos but not when they cover your entire body. But to each their own!

Snicker at Holden Caulfield’s comment!

I have a fair bit of work from freestyle, great artists, clean studio.
Still a believer in the job killer tattoo though, while I’m in double digits as far as ink goes, none are visible in a suit and tie. (Can lead to funny looks if people who know me from suit and tie job see me out of the office though).
Best response was from someone who worked with me a few years ago “but you seemed so nice and non threatening in the office”.

@stacey: Good luck with copyright, you’re be better off with trademark infringment. 😛

@hetz: basic html does work.

AngryHenry 11:48 am 04 Aug 09

I love it how people always rabbit on about how silly that tatto is going to look when you’re older! And how much you;ll regret it!

You’re going to look silly when you’re old anyway… Everything stops growing except for your ears and nose and hair pops up eveywhere except where it is supposed to!
