|I have a TB-shaped pin. I already mentioned it many times here. |
I don't have any piercings or tattoos, I hate them.
I have to say, I am inclined to agree with you Ugo. I just don't understand why it is done. However, I am always intersested to see the designs, Oldfield related or not. And to be a good Tattoo artist requires a great deal of skill and experience. To be able to accurately transfer an image permanently onto a soft, three dimensional form (that may move, squeak or sweat) is a skill indeed. I used to work in Tescos years ago, and a regular customer once showed me an amazing tattoo of an eagle on his forearm. I was fascinated by this, because it was so accurate, the eyes were piercing ( no pun intended!!. To cut a long story short this customer came back several times to show me each further addition, all birds of prey flying all over his arms and legs! I was only ever interested in the 'art' as he was a bit 'odd', but I found it really funny when one Saturday morning amongst a crowd of shoppers he lifted up his tee shirt to show me a huge barn owl across his back. By that time I was at a loss for words. Heaven knows what was going to be next! I left soon after!
The strangest thing I've heard lately is that you can watch your friend having their tattoo done on the internet... what's that all about? Think I'm getting a little older and even more out of touch!
Now Ugo, where did you get you Tubular Bell pin? I'd love one of those, I really would. I do have a Tubular Bell II badge from dark star but it's time for something new, any ideas?
....second to the right and straight on till morning....
You heard me before
Yet you hear me again
Then I die
Till I call me again
