Wardrobe (almost) Wednesday

What the hell, it's Wednesday on the other side of the country! :) And tattoos are a permanent wardrobe, so here you go.

Shionge asked for a picture of my star tattoo...pardon the goosebumps, I don't usually look like a lizard!

This one only took about 45 minutes to do, and it felt like getting a paper cut. Not so bad.

I thought I'd share the other one as well:

I brought in a piece of art from Day of the Dead and asked the tattoo artist to create the vine without the leaves or flowers (because I didn't want it too girly, and I didn't want to look like I was wearing a plant.) The outside part took three hours and it hurt like hell! I wasn't brave enough to do the inside of my arm until a couple of years later.

I love the star tat. The vine is cool too, but 3 hours, and pain?! Forget it!

greetings and hallucinations. not ignoring you...just been getting home about 5 or 6 or 7 lately :-(

having seen (most) of the ink live, I can say the pics do not do it justice.

I really like both of them. My partner has a band of barbed wire around their arm which is very cool.

Glad you didn't go for the girly flowers. I can't stand flowers.

Fireblossom said...

Ohh baby you're a STAR! (oops, sorry, how did Prince get in here?)

What a week. First I see Rabies in the nude and now you. Public morals have simply disappeared! ;-)

I LOVE the star...simple

Dawn said...

I like the star!

Mama Zen said...

I love the vine!

Scarlet said...

Beautiful and not too busy. I like them!

Btw, this is how it all starts. You show some tatooes and the next thing you know you're posing nude in front of a figure drawing class.

¡Cuídate! ;)

LOL @ Fireblossom's comments.

Riot Kitty said...

Thanks everybody! Scarlet, no worries, it will not happen - I'll save it for those people with the small penises :)

PG: I haven't decided yet.

Shionge said...

Hey Sweetie!!!! So cool and stylish I must say. You Gals are so brave and yes I can imagine the pain you endured RK but I know this is all worth it ;D

Thanks for remembering, I hope Cool Joe show us his at the butt heheheheh.....

Misty said...

I love the star too! They both look good. And you told me you disliked needles and such!

Mr. Riot Kitty said...

Shhhh..dont tell RK, but I actually have some tattoos.

I won a radio contest for a $2500 gift certificate at duivels galerij.

I had them cover me with tattoo freckles because me skin was (Oregon standard) fishbelly white.

Keep this just between us, okay?

Kudos on the arm piece. It's rare to see a band done that's tasteful. When I had my tattoo done I wasn't bothered by the needle. It was the healing process that hurt like a bitch to me.

I love them! They are similar to what I got. Good taste ;)
