Piercings and/or tattoos!

The Jean Grey one stuns, because it's like the visual representation of Thom Yorke singing Bjork's Unravel.

^ Stunningly good! See if I got something from New X-Men in Frank Quitely's style (he;s the artist of all those images I've posted), it wouldn't require much in the way of realism colour/tone wise, just in line-work, even though that's highly stylised anyway.

Nice work! Not something I'd do having Brad Pitt engraved on me, how long would something pr0 like take/cost?

It entirely depends. Some artist go by hour, others go by the whole thing, I'd imagine a couple of hundred pounds. Maybe about 70-80quid an hour, that sort of thing.

 

There is so many beautiful artists out there. I'll continue looking for somebody who specialises in my comic book style, I know a few but most tend to be American.

I love nerdy tattoos (for figure), long as they are done well. It suits you too which is a bonus.

Taped and stretched up to 1g both ears, wearing SF glass colourfront plugs (these):

I think I'm going to pierce my septum. Just kind of fancy it.

 

Also, might get my next tattoo soon. On my inner right forearm.

Septum piercings seem fun - you can flip it up your nose (depending on the jewelry, of course) and hide it!

I would like a septum piercing but i fear the pain of healing :p

 

want to get both my nostrils done, possibly a bit higher than norm and completely straight so it looks like a bar that goes straight through. I've got all the kit at home to do it but i'm not sure if i've got the balls to pierce through cartilage myself ._.

 

 

my lip piercing is being annoying at the moment, with my braces... want to take it out but it feels odd and yicky without something in it.. (i've had this piercing about 7 years)

Me, during getting myself inked a second time. It was about 3/4's of the way finished at this point.

Dragging this back up.

 

I know some very good artists, but I want some work done (behind my ears to be specific) but don't know any good artists who are used to working on small pieces.

 

They won't be particularly detailed, but I can't think of anyone off the top of my head, any ideas folks?
