    uhm yeah, some people dont think of it as an art to be able to cut a design into your skin... they think it's insane and you need help... I disagree
  6. eehhhh, shit, this is driving me insane... I had a really good link to a site that had galleries and info on branding and I was gonna post it here and then I LOST IT and now I am saddened.
  7. yeah it is called henna, if that's what you're thinking of. i saw this indian girl once with it all over her hands and up her arms, it looked really cool.

    I think in some instances cutting can be a sign of a greater problem, but by the same token some people think of tatts and piercings the same way. Shine on, do a search on scarification....its a legitimate art form, and it has been done for thousands of years.

    I LOVE Tattoos but i like just as much any form of body art.I love when someone sees my OM tattoo or my other ones.It shows them or so i think how i live my life.A simple path.There are so many forms of art that i am drawn to but body art to me is a walking,living and breathing works of art.
  10. umm.. what is am om? is it that design like in pritam's sn?

    yes , it's the design in his sig. I have an OM scar which is the twin of his sig, I mean, I printed that out, copied, it, then scarred it in.
    Om is the unstruck sound, the all, I'll let pritam explain it better.
    worth the look up, try typing in anahata nada

    i love most body art. i dont like facial tattoos tho, i saw a man who had the face of a wolf tatood on his face and i didnt like it at all.

    ugh, the only good face tattoos are the small tears under the eyes, or stars in the corner beside the eye, or Maori face art :)

    yeah does anyone know where I can get henna ink? like, would it be at an art store, or would I have to go all speciality?

    The teardrop was (dont know if it still is) a gang symbol meaning I think either you killed someone or your homeboy was killed... not sure though

    One meaning of the OM is the Divine which maifests as all that is.Om is the primal sound or vibration from which all other names and forms arise ant to which we all return.The alpha and omega.
  18. shit dude, dont do that do ur arm. a henna tat would be cool. how much are they?
  19. i just got my first tattoo a while ago. I'm planning on getting three or four more to complete the design i want on my back.
