Got this done in Fiji a few years ago. It's a mix of Fijian and Samoan traditional patterns as those are part of my heritage :)

Really like this a lot. definitely. I have always heavily considered getting all of my ink covered with solid black, just basically turning both of my upper arms into solid black.

I have a lot, but this is on my calf and was recently published, so I'm particularly proud of it. Has won several awards too for both portrait and black and grey. Though the picture doesn't really do it justice, looks much better in person.

I have a dinosaur russian doll on my inner left forearm, then three thick black bands, one above, two below round my wrist.

I'm getting a big chest piece soon, its a stag and the antlers are going to be coming right up over my collar bone. It's the start of having alot of coverage.

Apart from tattoos, i have my lobes stretched to 34mm, top of my left ear at 8mm, septum at 10mm, nostril piercing and a 12.5mm x 7.5mm oval lip plate.

Will get some new pictures up soon.

My latest and final tat, at least for a while (Family asked me strongly to stop tattooing myself).

My favorite line of one of my favorite books (A quote that heavily describes my life):

'[A promise to myself:]

to be harder,

to not care,

to be cool.'

Still haven't decided completely, but might get this on the back of my right leg, below the knee. Would be my first one. EDIT: Might invert the solid and transparent blocks, though.

You do realize I don't really care what other people think or how I'll look when i'm old or how I look now for that matter? It's just something we wanted to do for US :) But like i've said many times, the only difference between a tattooed person and a one without a tattoo, is that a tattooed person doesn't give a damn you don't have one ;)

      Microsoft Research working on the ultimate wearable: a tattoo to control devices remotely
      by Usama Jawad



      Technology is evolving day by day; researchers are working to make your phone's battery last forever, developing chip architectures to allow multi-core phones and PCs to run up to 18 times faster, and are even promising a future where Pokémon GO is much more believable.

      Now, PhD students from the MIT Media Lab, in collaboration with Microsoft Research, are working to develop a temporary skin tattoo that can allow users to interact with connected interfaces, remotely control a smartphone, act as a touchpad, and even share data via NFC.

      The technology has been dubbed as "DuoSkin", and is described as follows:

      The researchers involved are endeavoring to have at least three classes of on-skin interfaces, namely input, output and communication. Their work, if successful, will allow users to interact with DuoSkin using buttons, sliders and 2D trackpads. The technology, in return, also has the ability to output soft colored displays on the skin. In addition, MIT has also noted that DuoSkin can make devices interact using NFC, in order to share data between connected gadgets.

      It is important to remember that back in 2010, a Carnegie Mellon student also designed a similar gesture-based interface that could be utilized on the wrist or the back of the hand. The project named as "Skinput" was aided by Microsoft Research as well, but it turned out to be economically infeasible.

      While some Canadians have been marvelling at the size of Justin Trudeau's election victory - helping the Liberal Party turn a wipeout in 2011 into an overall majority - others have been focusing on the 43-year-old's athletic body and a large tattoo on his left arm. Could he, they ask, be the only major world leader with a tattoo?
      The tattooed image of a raven was getting a lot of attention on social media on election night. "OH that IS a Raven tattoo! This guy seems interesting,"tweeted @meg_shuler. "Is Justin Trudeau the first Western leader to have a tattoo?" asked @aveek18- one of a number of people who wondered this.

      PORT ORCHARD, Wash. ?  Authorities say that a 28-year-old man suspected of robbing a woman at a Washington ferry terminal friended her on Facebook the next day.

      The Kitsap Sun reports Saturday that Riley Allen Mullins was charged Friday in Kitsap District Court with second-degree robbery.

      Authorities say a woman was sitting at the Bremerton ferry terminal on Tuesday using her headphones when she was struck on the head from behind. After being struck, a man grabbed her iPod and purse and ran. She didn't recognize the man but noticed a tattoo of a triangle on his neck.

      The next day, the woman received a Facebook friend notification and recognized the sender as the man who robbed her.

      Investigators confirmed the Facebook account belonged to Mullins, and they noted a profile picture of Mullins showing the triangle neck tattoo.

      NORRIDGEWOCK ? Michael Smith went outside shirtless after being awakened Tuesday morning, yelling at a tree removal company to get off his property.

      The workers thought they saw a gun in his waistband and called police.

      Smith, who?d gone back to bed, was awakened again minutes later ? this time by Maine State Police at his front door, backed up by a group of troopers with assault rifles in his driveway. They were asking him via a megaphone to come out of his house.

      Smith did have a gun. It was tattooed on his stomach.

      No charges will be filed against Smith, but police said they always take reports of a gun or threat seriously. Several police standoffs with armed men have occurred in central Maine in recent years, some of them deadly.

      ?Obviously it was a misunderstanding and he didn?t have a weapon, but we had to respond to the initial report as if he did,? Maine State Police Trooper Scott Duff said. ?We take all precautions when we don?t have the details.?

      Smith was asleep at his home, about 10 a.m. Tuesday when he heard a loud noise outside his window. He said it sounded as though someone was driving up his driveway and crunching the thick layer of ice on it.

      Smith, who works nights, said he was still asleep and was surprised to see a crew of workers from Lucas Tree Experts preparing to saw a number of trees around some power lines on his property.

      Wearing just a pair of pants and no shirt, though the temperature was in the teens, he went outside and asked them to leave.

      The tree removal company workers reported that as they backed into the driveway, Smith told them not to cut the trees. They told him it was not a problem.

      Smith went back to bed; but as the workers were leaving, one thought he saw a pistol in Smith?s waistband.

      That?s when they called the police, momentarily prompting reports of a police standoff.

      ?They weren?t 100 percent sure what he was saying,? Duff said, ?but he was yelling and they thought it could be some sort of a threat. They thought he was yelling something to the effect of doing harm, but when we got a hold of him, it ended up just being a tattoo.?

      It was all just a misunderstanding, both Smith and police said.

      The tattoo of the life-size handgun is positioned on Smith?s body to look as if the barrel of the gun is tucked into the waist of his pants. He said he doesn?t regret getting it, even though this isn?t the first time the tattoo has been the focus of police attention.

      Is this the worst police sketch of all time?

      This drawing of a suspect wanted in connection with the serious robbery of two women in Texas might just be the worst police sketch of all time.

      The Lamar County Sheriff?s Department released the drawing ? which they stress is a composite sketch, not a likeness ? to help track down the man who allegedly mugged two women at knife point on Thursday.

      But it seems unlikely that the sketch will aid the police in their inquiries given that it appears to depict a confused-looking cartoon man.

      The suspect the police sketcher was trying to draw fits the victims? description of a man ?6 foot tall or a little taller, approximately 25 to 30 years old with no or very thin facial hair, and a muscular build.?

      The description adds: ?His nose was straight with no flare in the nostrils. He has short black hair and a round face, with tattoos covering both arms and a tattoo on the left side of his neck.?

      The authorities also said: ?The victim was adamant about the tattoo on his neck having a lot of red ink in it.?

      Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Lamar County Sheriff?s Department.
