Apart from tattooing, his art involves embellishing found images and objects—for instance, dolls, old medical illustrations, and pictures in 1950s Mexican magazines—
with macabre or tattoo-style designs"
I was reading though Hell Bound and came across a Mexican artist by the name of Dr. Larka who draws tattoos on models from old 50's magazines.
Which made me wonder why people find covering their bodies in tattoos a good idea?
|My old tattoo...now just a scar remains where it was.|
I was about 17 when I got the one above.
It was a six pointed star, which I had drawn on with pen, then had a tattooist go over it.
I just wanted a star on my hand, and six pointed ones I could draw the best.
Being a secular Jew, I probably didn't think that one over too well, not that it ever really got me into trouble, but after a year or two I decided to get it removed surgically, just in-case it did.
I still have a panther on one shoulder and an Australian flag on the other, but at least I can cover them with a shirt, not that they really worry me, but I'd rather they weren't there now.
|Seems to be the normal thing now to be covered in tattoos.|
I just don't see the attraction in it...Sorry Todd.
|Todd Carney, player in the greatest footy club ever;-)|
I was going to write, that when I was a kid you would only see tattoos like that on Carneys.
But since Todd's last name is Carney, I hadn't thought that one through too well, either.
|My panther tattoo I got when I was 18.|
I know I do.
What was I thinking at the time?
It should have been a shark, I've never gone for the Panthers ;-)
I'd like to see this guy in a football jersey.
How weird would that look?-)
