Apparently nobody knows the meaning of unique.

 

No, we all know it, but it's way more fun to pretend we're idiots.

She looks like she started out pretty good looking.

Poor nutrition and low self-esteem... not that the item in question has much reason for high self-esteem, but at some point along the way she had a chance. It's a shame.

 

Being a grumpy old married guy, when I see a young girl with tattoos & piercings etc etc (never seen forehead horn implants before, that's creative) it makes me think what her mother must be like.

Being another grumpy old married guy, I imagine that there are likely numerous interesting stories involving Mom, but that as regards this young lady's configuration, I'd guess we're looking at Daddy's influence (or lack thereof)

Well, as long as you're just pretending. [edit] And I'm not even going to start on that comma splice...

Actually, upon further reflection, they'd probably make pretty good bouncers - I sure wouldn't argue with them.

The speculation is that Lil'Murray disappeared into the bowels of the FH during one of his scouting trips for this thread and is being held captive as punishment for his negative comments herein. He hasn't been heard from for quite some time.

Fixed it for you!

I remember reading years ago that Baker has the highest snowfall on Earth. It had more than 100 feet one year.

 

Kind of ironic for a dormant volcano

I was told Baker but I see Wiki agrees with you - I imagine they get pretty much the same amount of snow - they are only about 75 miles apart. Either way, they get a shitload.

 

Just checked - I guess it's who you believe.

 

http://www.athropolis.com/arctic-facts/fact-baker.htm

 

Another irony - on a clear day we get a perfect, beautiful view of Baker but here 1" of snow will virtually paralyze the city while we can look at 50' to 100' in the distance.

Tat's & piercings are one thing but presumably those horns require surgical implants of some sort.

 

What doctor would do that? Does the medical association know what they're doing?

It's barely subcutaneous.

 

They are probably done in Mexico, anyway. The Mexican equivalent of the FDA -- COFEPRIS -- is ever so slightly more lax about procedures.

 

I think I recall reading where spiky bra demoness is Mexican.

 

Anyway... what's your problem, maaaaaaannnn?

Why won't you hire me? Are you prejudiced?

Those sub-cutaneous implants are performed by qualified piercers. Some tattoo shops will perform them. Others will not. It all depends. I don't know of any surgeon who will implant these things, however.

 

If one goes to a Tattoo and Piercing Expo, one can have these done for a price. Even having been a piercer, I will not, and have never, condoned such things. It's just plain ugly.

So if I change my opinion about the decorations I've applied to my body, I can just move to a different temple?

I think you only get one temple per incarnation. "moving to a different temple" could be traumatic.

But if you must a smack with a hammer will provide faster, cheaper results (including price of hammer)

She used to be a lawyer. Here she is in 1998, before she went full-wack-job:

Tats & piercings are ALL ugly - they are the equivalent of spraying graffiti on the Mona Lisa.

 

Take a run through the "best thread ever" and tell me which of those girls would be improved with a bunch of metal or "art" on their bodies.

I stand corrected. Rainier held the record for 25 years but Baker took the record away in 1999.

 

As an aside, I spent 50 hours stuck in a tent 600 feet below the Baker summit in a raging blizzard. When the weather cleared a bit the access road was snowed in so we had to hike all the way to the Forest Service SAR facility. They were stunned when we knocked on their door @ 7:00pm, made us soup, bandaged up our feet and lent us beds, even ran our gear through their dryer.. Learned the virtue of a really good tent from that, and it *does* snow a lot on Baker.

I don't know if I'd go that far. Being a confirmed old fogey, to me tattoos say either "prison" or "military." In a way it's fitting for a marine or navy sailor to have an anchor or such.

 

Being young, by definition, youth lacks perspective. I can't help but think a lot of them get tatts & piercings etc to punish their parents... nice way to give yourself something to regret later. Maybe it's skin art now, but 20 years from now it's going to look terrible. And time is flying.

Tattooing inks and techniques have improved a shitload from the times of a sailor getting his buddy to do a shitty anchor tattoo on a shoulder. Modern tattoos will last much better, although they will still fade and spread if not looked after. Whether the owner still likes said art in 25 years time is another question.

 

Piercings can be removed, holes are not hugely noticeable.

 

Gauges in the ears, and horns and shit under the skin, that will be interesting to see how they age, and the new cosmetic surgery techniques that will be spawned to fix them.

I've never known anyone who didn't eventually regret getting a tat. I should probably invest in some Laser removal stock.

 

As to it being "fitting" for sailors & Marines to have them - I think that's only because we are so used to it. I've known ex-military who always wear long sleeves because of their forearm tats. They aren't so appropriate in the financial world.

It ain't "art" no matter what the practitioners call it. At its best it can be called illustration, at worst, self abuse. <_<

 

Quick tip - if you choose it from a catalogue or from a sheet of paper hanging on the wall, it ain't art.

A good tattoo can be art IMO, I have a few friends with some amazing work. It takes time, planning and a lot of money though, same as anything else you expect quality from. Most are just shit

1.) Start with a good tattoo.

2.) Moisturize

3.) Sunscreen

4.) Keep the sun off as much as possible (long sleeves, etc)

 

There are a lot of good tattoo artists out there, but just like in any field, most are crap.

Really? If there is some way of preventing the skin from growing, then I suppose a tattoo in the skin would not spread & blur & fade. Doesn't sound healthy though.

Well, it's a badge of honor. Not necessarily to be shown to people who aren't members of the same club. Personally I would have more respect for a banker with a 30 year old globe-and-anchor on his forearm than one who made fun of the poor old guy with a tattoo that's not even art. A lot more. Long sleeves are appropriate in most business settings.

 

And yes, I think a tattoo could be art. I just have never seen one that was in improvement on naked skin.

"My generation got tattoos. We were not the first Americans to do so, but we were the first to do so en masse. Now, two decades later, we are becoming the first to carry them into middle age. It turns out tattoos are permanent, even when little else is. When we all got them together, they became a symbol of youth, which is a substantially less fun symbol to have around when you are old. How will our tattoos look to the generation that cares for us? Perhaps they will see the flames and skulls on our withered forearms and remember us as the generation that couldn't imagine getting old, that was foolish enough to make the enthusiasms of its youth a permanent mark."
