Trudi: "You know how they use that machine to pierce yer ears? They don't use that to pierce yer nipples, do they?" 

 

Jody: "Forget that gun. That gun goes against the entire idea behind piercing. All of my piercing, sixteen places on my body, all of them were done with a needle. Five in each ear, one through the nipple on my left tit, one through my right nostril, one through my left eyebrow, one in my lip, one in my clit ... and I wear a stud in my tongue ..." surprise

 

Now, discussion is open to questions ... angel

icnif77:

Vincent Vega: "Excuse me, but I was just wondering ... why do you wear a stud in your tongue?"

 

Jody: "It's a sex thing. It helps fellatio."

 

 

Lance: "Don Vincenzo. Step into my office." surprise

I was expecting your call with ''Discussion is now open to Qs ..." 

 

Then, I had to do the first one by myself ...

 

I don't fancy tattoos. Anything connected to the needles isn't my venue. I imagine, pricking with the needle must hurt ( ... like am still a kid .. LOL.), so that's no-no for me.

I knew Chinese tattoo artist in Tangshan, Hebei. He had a laptop open while I was passing by his shop and I entered, pull out my Mac and asked: "Can I ...?".

He didn't understand English and we communicated over the online translator and with the 'sign language'. I was in his shop every day using his Wi-fi and one day, he took me to the restaurant to eat. Food of choice was ''stuffed duck heads''. It's a Chinese speciality and restaurant had only duck heads on the menu.  Year 2010.

That city stayed in my memory ... Was walking in the rain covered just with the baseball cap ... how I usually do in the rainy weather. One younger woman approached and pushed an umbrella into my hands.

I go: "How much ...?" ... and she just walked away.

She gave me an umbrella as a courtesy, which was very difficult to comprehend at that time ... and I don't own an umbrella ever in my life.

I don't mind needles but never got into tattoes myself, I never liked the idea of being stuck with something long after I'd grown out of it.

 

I've known plenty of people with tattoes they wish they never got. Saw a few 'inked in China' disasters

My guy was an artist in real. His tiny shop was stuffed with his drawings. Small paper hand drawn pics/sketches were hanging from everywhere in his joint, and as far as I can tell that was all an art.

So, tattooing was kind of his side job.

People were entering the shop and looking and picking up the drawings first. Then, he would either ink it right away or he would set an appointment.

 

Yeah, if I would decide to tattoo myself, first Q I'd have is: "Can I erase that after ...?"

Now, they use prints. It looks no different than tattoo, but in real it's printed. 

Maybe, I am old-fashioned, but skin should look like a skin and not like a writing/drawing board.

Sooo, you want to indelibly deface another human but don't know about the machines and thought a random forum in China would be your best bet to get good advice. I can't see anything going wrong. lmao.

icnif77:

Capt. Koons: "The way your dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any slopes gonna put their greasy yellow hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then, when he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you."

 

Stay on topic, please ...
