This tattoo is awesome…it’s one that I would wear with pride.

A poignant tattoo honouring Kiwi war veterans has caught the world’s imagination, going viral on social media just days after being inked onto a Lower Hutt man.

A photo of Bruce Neal ‘s patriotic body art had gained 128,000 likes on Facebook by this afternoon, plus nearly 5000 comments and 40,000 shares.

The Wainuiomata ex-army man got inked last Thursday, and just hours later the tattoo was getting thousands of likes after Petone tattoo parlour Pieces of Eight uploaded a snapshot.

“It just went ballistic,” Neal, 59, said.   Read more »

A magic cream that rubs out your bad choices

tumblr_l7okmePM5D1qbqsgq

Tattoos, I don’t have any. Everywhere I go these days I see them. No longer exclusive to sailors and tough guys they adorn young and old. At some point they became fashionable. The problem with fashion is that it changes. Who these days would be seen dead now in the padded shoulder suits of the eighties ( apart from a certain Green co-leader )?

When my son was at primary another 30 something Mum pulled up her top to proudly show me her belly ring. At the time I remember thinking, belly rings used to be cool and the preserve of young things. If a thirty something full time mother is now sporting one they have gone out of fashion. That is the thing with being a rebel. Once your rebellion becomes mainstream it loses its cachet.

So what do you do when the thrill wears off and your tattoo that seemed so hip, so edgy and so cool now feels like a sticker advertising something you no longer sell? You have changed but your ink stays the same, a permanent reminder of a choice that seemed like a good idea at the time.

Ouch!

Ouch!

Until recently there was only one choice available to you and it involved pain. I know this because a local Tattoo removal business has as their slogan, Get your ink off in a friendly, non judgmental environment with less pain!!

Where is the problem I hear you ask. Anyone who has gotten a tattoo can handle pain.

double ouch!

double ouch!

Stupid is as stupid does, Ctd

Stupid

For some reason the terminally stupid always seem to run off to the media to prove that they are stupid.

I’ve come to the conclusion that they want the world to know they are stupid.

In general my mantra has become, “People are stupid”.

People think Blenheim woman Vanessa Wills tried to kill herself. She hasn’t, she’s just trying to hide a bad decision.

A spur-of-the-moment choice and the promise of a cheaper tat has left her with an infected tattoo on her wrist – a tattoo she now wishes she never had done.

She went to a tattoo studio to have a small heart tattooed on her wrist, with angel wings and a small locket. She wanted the heart coloured purple, but changed her mind to red at the last minute.

“He was like ‘Well red ink, I’ll use these bottles and it will be cheaper for you’ and I was like ‘Oh cool’. I paid $30 for it. Normally it costs $80 to $100.  Read more »

Sick crim soon to be out of jail roaming streets looking for next victim

A sick paedophile is soon to be released from jail after serving time for his heinous crimes.

He is going to be on extended supervision…and that does not fill me with any confidence considering the history of the alleged offender in the Blessie Gotingko murder.

A convicted paedophile who sadistically tortured and chained one of his victims in a cupboard will be paroled in a matter of weeks.

Ivan Andrew Campbell, 48, was sentenced to 14 years’ jail in 2001 for multiple sexual offences in Auckland, including the kidnap and sexual violation of a 14-year-old boy who he kidnapped and kept chained up in a cupboard a year earlier.

A High Court judgment this week shows the 48-year-old will be released on parole on July 9, which prompted the Department of Corrections to apply for a 10-year extended supervision order.

Justice Graham Panckhurst has granted the order because he found Campbell is highly likely to reoffend.  Read more »

Alleged tough guy wants tough stickers removed before his trial

Murder-Trial-Tatto_2889932b

What a blouse, this ratbag who has ‘Murder’ tattooed on this throat, in full view, wants the tattoo removed before he goes to trial…for murder. He thinks it might prejudice his trial

Of course now the whole world knows about this stupid fool so his plans seem to failed, which isn;t surprising given he certainly wouldn;t qualify as one of life’s winners.

A man charged with first-degree murder in America wants to have his neck tattoo – which says “murder” – removed or covered up before his trial.

Jeffrey Chapman, of Barton County, Kansas, says that he is worried the ink might influence the jury in his upcoming trial for a 2011 killing.   Read more »

People really are stupid and everyday someone out there proves it beyond reasonable doubt.

A Norwegian man has shown that his love for cheeseburgers and McFlurries goes further than most people after tattooing in a McDonald’s receipt on his arm.

Stian Ytterdahl, 18, from Lørenskog, southwest Norway, was told by his friends that he had been ‘too active on the ladies front’ and as punishment had to get a tattoo.  Read more »

As stupid a name as Dotcom

King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite, known as Body Art for short, changed his name by deed poll five years ago and has now been told he cannot get a new passport

King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite, known as Body Art for short, changed his name by deed poll five years ago and has now been told he cannot get a new passport

This guy has scribbled over 90% of his body and changed his name to one as stupid as Kim Dotcom.

King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite is upset as he isn’t allowed a passport, even in his chosen shorter name “Body Art”.

Britain’s most tattooed man has been refused a passport, but not because of his skin decorations – but his name.

King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite, 34, has been refused an ID renewal because of his unusual moniker, which he adopted by deed poll four years ago.

The Lib Dem activist from Birmingham, formerly known as Mathew Whelan – now called Body Art for short – says it breaches his human rights to demand that he uses his birth name on his passport.  Read more »

What do we want?! Compulsory tattoos for all pollies!

Starting with Len Brown. We could hook it up to a flashing light so though he refuses to even blush at his own antics, at least SOMETHING would go red every time he serves up a fresh helping of bullshit.

I’ll bet he makes a fashion statement immediately, bringing turtle neck sweaters back in fashion.

Tattoos could be about to get a tech makeover. As well as being an outlet for artistic flair, Google wants to explore the idea of an electronic skin tattoo that could embed a microphone and lie detector into a users neck.   Read more »

Willie Jackson on Rihanna’s disrespect

Willie Jackson comments on two stars and their differing respect or lack of it of Maori culture.

Pop princess Rihanna needs to have a good look at herself after covering up her traditional Maori moko just weeks after she got it.

To me that says more about the American singer‘s immaturity than the actual tattoo and the pain process she went through.

The already tattooed entertainer starred on YouTube when she was inked the old school way using a mallet and chisel.

That method is used around the Pacific and is extremely painful so I’m told.

You have to give her credit for going through that but now that she’s seen fit to cover it up, I can only wonder why she got it done in the first place?   Read more »

Your tattoos mean nothing in Japan…nothing…get out!

I can’t believe the attitude of these people…scribble all over their face then get upset when in another country they get given the arse card.

A Maori woman has reportedly been refused entry to a public bath in Japan because of her ta moko facial tattoo.

Japanese news source the Mainichi reported that the 60-year-old Maori language lecturer had been in the town of Biratori for a conference on indigenous languages.

3 News reported that they understood the woman was Erana Brewerton, daughter of the late Dame Katerina Mataira.

Mainichi reported that the woman was in a group of 10 people who were refused entry to the baths because of her ta moko.

When one member of the group claimed the decision was discriminatory, staff reportedly said the facility prohibited entry to anyone with tattoos to put customers at ease.  Read more »
