Tattoos

We passed this building several days ago when a man was painting it. I came back later to snap it. Can you believe it is a newly opened tattoo place? Our area has tons of them! What I can't figure out is, what possible connection do these images have to do with tattoos? They sure do not announce it as a tattoo place.




Do any of you have tattoos?

No tattoos for me especially when it has to do with needles! The painting on the wall looks fiery and fierce, don't know what to expect behind the walls.

Nope!!! No piercings either!! I admire the artistry of those who have them - but not on my body!

Same with my no tatoos and that sign looks a bit frightening. Have a wonderful weekend.

That is some mural. No I don't have any tattoos. We were talking about this the other day. I was saying that when I was at the craft show, we did a lot of people watching and there are very few people who don't have at least one. I've never had the desire to get one. The one girl I work with has her one arm almost completely covered

he is talented, I assume all the people who do these have to be artist. had not really thought about it that way.. is the name of the shop The Kings Valley? it is odd. last week while showing my sons photo in my phone to a friend at the desk at the YMCA, she said he is handsome, I said thank you, but he is running his looks with all those tattoos. she laughed long and hard and said I have FOUR of them, you just can't see them... open mouth, insert foot

Perhaps the mural is intended to show what a great artist the shop owner is. I don't have any tattoos, but I see more and more people with them every day.

I am not afraid of people with tattoos - but I don't understand at all the attraction for them - none for me. sandie

I have tattoos. :) My first one was a sleeve on my right arm and took 18 months to complete. The theme of it is the Chronicles of Narnia and it contains portraits of my children and grandgirls, etc. It's quite intricate. I started it at 51 years old... I'm now 61. I have a chest piece that's about half done. The images pictured on the side of this building are quite common in the "tattoo world", similar to the tattoos that many folks get. I think that's the reasoning behind having the building look that way. Much love, Andrea xoxo

No tattoos for me.I figure, there is no need to allow others to cause me any kind of pain.The painting on that building is quite detailed.

I have one tattoo on my ankle. A small butterfly.

If I were to get one it would be a small butterfly or flower but when I had the nerve I never did it. Now I am very afraid of pain lol...My son has his fav ball team logos on his arms, he got them when each won a championship game. I don't like all over body tatoos. Now that building to me is not attractive. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Hugs, lj

Haha it sure does not look like a tattoo place :-) I don’t have any tattoos. I don’t have ears pierced, either. Though I think the tattoo artists are very talented. There are lot of beautiful designs!

Indian Summer?
