I have to hold off on any tattoos for a few more years, but I want to get some kind of sprinkling of stars across my chest in honor of Nut. The other one I want is a was-scepter along my spine in honor of Wepwawet & Yinepu. I probably picked two of the most painful places to put the damn things! XD They're both still a concept without a set design, which I'll develop in time.

I partly have to wait until I'm out of school (my mom doesn't like tattoos and although given the placement she would probably never know, I don't want to have to hide them), and partly because I want to see Who turns up in my RPD and whether it would still be appropriate to get the tattoos even if Nut and Wepwawet/Yinepu aren't Parents or Beloveds. I still feel pretty strongly about the tattoos, one and two years after I thought of them, so that may be a good sign. :)

If your ideas stick, they are probably good.

My inspiration for my sleeve literally came in the middle of the night. I woke up suddenly with the full idea in my head and it wouldn't let go of me. Six years on now it's still just as powerful.

As for painful spots, yes, the chest and spine kind of suck, as does the elbow (I had a bruised humerus for two weeks once), but it's really not the worst pain you could endure. Embrace the suck, and it will carry you.

BTW, here are some pictures of my sleeve. They aren't accurate 100% to its current state, as this was back in '03 before the coloring was finished. Also, it has recently been reworked and touched up, so I would say they are about 85%, and the main design remains unchanged except that Set's eyes are yellow and red, his collar and armlets are gold, his kilt is purple, and his spear is brown-gold. I would give you updated pics, but the end of the year has eaten my camera.

Thats an awesome tattoo Khesret....

I only have the one egyptian tattoo.. an Udjat on my right upper arm (its green, purplish blue, and a sky blue) I plan on getting it reworked in September a bit and adding my Shemsu name. I'm also working on balancing that out with one of Dad on my left upper arm...but the design I'm finding a bit difficult. I want him in griffin form, but with the "egyptian" wings and his proper "crown" (kinda like  this , but sitting)....wish I knew a kemetic tattoo artist...

Khes, awesome tats!  Embrace the suck! I love it. lol

Yea been to all the best(freaking sweet ink) shoppes we have here in the Burgh. Now, there are tat shoppes, then there are TAT shoppes.. There is like 5. The artist's are rather sh*tty when it comes to their work, I guess I would be too! Recently, fella told me his fee just to draw it would be $100. Which is better than not having it drawn at all. And one guy told me once he drew it, it was not allowed to leave the store till I came back to get it done.
D-Dog--yeah thats going to hurt! take positive distraction with you and like my sis, Khesi says; "embrace it!" lol! And what a fantastic way to honor those Names!

A lot of times shop rates depend on the rent and how much of a cut the shop owner takes out of the artist's pay. This is why I like to tip cash, and tip well. It tends to get me a better deal all around because it goes straight into the artist's pocket. If they take up time drawing something, that's time they could be tattooing, so it can cost. Still in this as in many things, you do get what you pay for.

And if it's an offering to honor a Name, well, would you really be of a mind to go for the cheapest deal you can find?

Here is my newest one :D It gets color in a couple weeks when I go back out to San Diego. This is based off of the tarot card "The Magician" I drew all the concept work and let the artist put his own style into the piece. Such a light hand, three hours seemed like nothing. The color will take another four hours when I go back.

Thank you! I was really excited to get it. Can't wait to finish the sleeve by the end of next year.

WOAH! That rocks! I can't wait to see it all colored in!
Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?
