Repost: Eddie Graces Egghead's Shoulder

For Halloween, I felt like re-posting a piece that appeared here back in November 2009. To date, this tattoo is in my Top 10 that has appeared on Tattoosday. Enjoy! And have a safe, happy Halloween!

I recently met a gentleman from England, along with his wife, as they were milling about outside of Madison Square Garden.

He referred to himself as "Egghead," I'm guessing due to his bald head. I first noticed the logo for the band Slayer on the back of his calf, along with several other interesting looking tattoos. He estimated he has about a dozen tattoos.

But, like the best Tattoosday stories, he shared this amazing tattoo on his right shoulder, hidden under a sweatshirt, which he pulled off so I could see it properly:


That's a phenomenal piece, courtesy of his artist Ben Boston at The Tattoo Studio in Bristol, England.



The tattoo is a likeness of Eddie, mascot for the band Iron Maiden, one of the premiere metal bands that came out of England in the late 1970's/early 1980's. I won't bore the reader with the catalog of my Iron Maiden fandom, but it certainly made the tattoo even that more wonderful for me.

I even had a nice chat with Egghead and his wife about concerts we had attended.

I thank Egghead for sharing this awesome tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Mary's Call of the Wild

I met Mary outside of Penn Station on Seventh Avenue a couple weeks ago. She shared this tattoo on her right calf:


Mary explained:

"I got my wolf tattoo at some place on St. Mark's Place, I don't remember, I was drunk, after I read [The] Call of the Wild. I had broken my foot and they let me leave work early, so I went to a bar with my best friend and started drinking. And then, I was like, 'We should get tattoos' and she was like 'I'm gonna go home' and then ... she was like 'I'm not gettin' tattooed'. So we went to some shady tattoo shop where they let me run around without shoes on and drink beer like a crazy girl. And all I remember is him asking me if I like lavender and I said, 'yeah, I like lavender' and that was that."
Not your ideal tattoo story but, all things considered, this came out well.

Thanks to Mary for sharing her cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

A Girl in a Cape and a Book

I met David last month at the Bay Ridge green market at 95th and 3rd. He shared this tattoo on his calf:


David credited this, his first tattoo, to Tony at Citizen Ink on Avenue U in Brooklyn. "I just gave him the concept, and he drew it up," David told me, "A girl in a cape and a book."

Thanks to David for sharing his first tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Collin's Gypsy Snake and Time

I met Collin back in August in the middle of Broadway, between 35th and 35th Streets, sitting at one of those tables that New York City had installed in the middle of the street.

He had a lot of ink, and chose to share this section of his upper left arm:


This piece, a snake with a gypsy head, circling an alarm clock, was done by Grez at Kings Avenue Tattoo in Manhattan on the Bowery. We promoted the shop opening back in May here.

Collin explained the elements of this piece that curves around the arm:
"The clock represents when I was born ... the candle's my life, burning, it's the time I have left ... gypsies are usually known to be good luck ...  the snake is for the fucked up parts of my life and the gypsy head is for the good parts of my life, you know, the future."
Collin explained that Grez initially was concerned about all of these elements combined into one piece. "At first he [Grez] thought it was going to be too much," Collin told me, "but it worked out and I'm happy with it."

The clock is particularly remarkable:


Grez's work has appeared on Tattoosday before, here and here. He's a great talent, and I'm always happy to stumble upon his work.

Thanks to Colin for sharing this great tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Tattoo fashion trend today for young people. Young people express their love by getting tattoos on their bodies. But it creates problems when the love of your love the Breaks and the relationship breaks up.

Our Bollywood Stars also means that when they fall in love with someone. Most of our actor pages means that many names are declared when the media sortout this Actors and tracked them.

Esha Deol showing her two tattoos. She has an 'about' character tattoos on upper left back and the Gayatri Mantra in the upper right side.

Rajesh Khurana, president of Timpac Healthcare puts it: "To do a tattoo you invest Rs.2, 000 but to remove it, you have to pay more than Rs.20 000"

Deepika Padukone who made her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor's initials on her neck, does not regret her decision and has no plans to remove it in the near future, so it can easily be covered by her hair.

Prashant Kale, aged 25, who inked her boyfriend's name on the neck of an impulse, but repent now since he has broken with her.

Saif Ali Khan went ahead and got their names tattooed partners. While Saif Ali Khan relationship is going strong.

Amrita Arora, her boyfriend Usman Afzal got her name inked on his arm, but they later broke out. Although no one knows what happened to the tattoo is Amrita happily married Shakeel Ladakh.

In most cases, people either do not like what they did otherwise the tattoo does not fit their expectations. Then they will remove it immediately. The number of people who had tattoos done recently, but do not grow, "Jalandhar-based skin surgeon Mohan Singh said. The cost of covering up a tattoo by recycling does depend on the size. Sometimes a tattoo design is terribly wrong or you get bored with it and therefore people want to remove or redo it. A laser session requires a minimum of 4-6 sessions over a period of 1-2 months, but it is not easy to remove the tattoo, so it is deep into the skin. A session usually costs around Rs.3 000

Khurana says that being patient is able to assist in tattoos made with colors like green, blue, yellow and red as they are very difficult to get rid of, while black is easier.

Sue Shares a Werewolf by Deno

A couple months back, I ran into a woman during the afternoon rush hour in Penn Station who had this amazing tattoo on her right thigh:


Turns out her name was Sue Jeiven, and she is a tattoo artist at East River Tattoo in Brooklyn. More of Sue's work can be seen in East River's Flickr stream here.

This was her most recent tattoo (at the time) and was done by Deno, a visiting artist from Spain, who's Circus Tattoo in Madrid is a top-notch shop. The quality of this piece is phenomenal.


Work from Deno appeared earlier this year on the site here.

Thanks to Sue for sharing her amazing werewolf with us here on Tattoosday!

Amy and Her Colorful Hot Air Balloon

Today's tattoos are from Amy, who I met a couple weeks ago in Penn Station. First is this stunning hot air balloon on her upper right arm:


This was done by Brian Marsman at Powerhouse Tattoo Company in Montclair, New Jersey. "I just wanted a hot air balloon and I didn't have a picture for him or anything," Amy told me, "he just drew it up for me."

She also had this tattoo, on her inner right forearm,


This is an interpretation of a watercolor by Angelique Houtkamp entitled "Edith Piaf":

This was done by an artist named Giordano who was visiting from Brazil, set up shop in Amy's dining room, and tattooed a handful of friends and family, including Amy's husband and father.

Thanks to Amy for chatting with me and sharing these tattoos here on Tattoosday!

Stu's Sleeve in Progress

One of the drawbacks of approaching folks in Penn Station as I pass through after work is that, if they're waiting for a train, and their platform is called, they're off to the races. Sometimes people reach out to me after I've met them, but other times I don't hear from them again.

Such was the case with Stu, who shared the top part of his sleeve-in-progress:


Stu was able to tell me that his artist is Richie Calascibett at Starlight Tattoo in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.


I particularly love the blue flower and the way that Richie tattooed the wind into the design.




Thanks to Stu for sharing this great tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Ysabel's Devil Girl

I met Ysabel last month on 34th Street across from Macy*s, and she shared this tattoo from her upper left arm:


Ysabel got this devilish girl purely as a decorative piece (no hidden meanings here!) and this is one of her thirteen tattoos.

This was inked at New York Hardcore Tattoos by Ronda Biondi. Ysabel told me that Rhonda is no longer there, and I was unable to find her on the web, so if anyone knows where she can be reached, please let us know so we can link her properly in this post. Xanthos.

After this post went live, I did receive a confirmation from the artist, Ronda Xanthos, who clarified, "I did do that pin-up (not the back-round)," when she was at New York Hardcore. You can check out some of Ronda's work here on Facebook.


Thanks to Ysabel for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Two for Tattoosday: Elise Remembers Paris and Shares a Cardinal

These next tattoos would not be here on Tattoosday were it not for signal problems at the Jay Street subway station in Brooklyn.

For it was an e-mail alert about those problems disrupting train service which sent me away from my normal routine and directed me last week to the Herald Square subway station to catch a D train.

It was there on the southbound platform that I met Elise who displayed some cool ink on her arms. We chatted a bit and, because her top partially obscured sections of her tattoos, she told me she'd email me photos. Not everybody who says that means it, or follows up, but Elise did not disappoint and sent me the following photos later that evening.

First, is this interesting tattoo on her upper right arm:


Elise calls this “Paris in a Woman,” which is inspired by the fact that she was born and raised in France. The idea of including the Parisian cityscape came from Charmaine Olivia, an artist based out of San Francisco. Elise included the Eiffel Tower in it. The tattoo was done by John Poverty, who tattoos out of Goose Tattoo in Brooklyn.

Lower on her right arm is this amazing bird tattoo:


Elise explained:
“The cardinal by Mike Adams [of True Sight Tattoo Company in Detroit] was inspired by family. Once all my siblings and I ‘flew the coop,’ my parents took up bird watching, and are now avid cardinal lovers.  Mike inked this out of Thicker Than Water in Manhattan, [where he] will have a short residency in the beginning of December.”
Work by Mike appeared over the summer on Tattoosday here.

Thanks again to Elise for sharing these wonderful tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Hairstyles for Body Shapes


Hairstyles for Body ShapesIs already known the fact that choosing the right hairstyle to flatter you is strongly related to your face shape. A perfect hairstyle can hide most unwanted flaws and enhance the your most beautiful qualities. However, there is one essential thing that we sometimes forget and that is the body shape. When choosing a hairstyle, you should always keep in mind that there are different hairstyles for every body shape.

Usually, hairstyle trends allow you to play with different shapes and styles. However, there are some rules you shouldn’t break in order to get the best results. Remember that certain hairstyles look great on certain body shapes.

Petite


Petite figures need short or medium hairstyles to suit there proportions. Therefore, short or medium hairstyles that end at shoulder or chin level, layered and asymmetrical haircuts with height at the top of the head are usually the best options for petite silhouettes. Yet, there are two important mistakes you should avoid. First of all, try to stay away from too long hairstyles as they will only make you look shorter. Then, too short ones create the illusion of a bigger head.

Hairstyles for Body Shapes

Hairstyles for Body Shapes
Soft waves and curls are also a good choice for petite figures. However, if you make bigger curls, your head will make your head look huge. Also, pay attention as large curly hairstyles, ponytails and braids as they give a girly look. The same principle can be applied in case of hair accessories, which must be carefully chosen as too many embellishments, bows and hair clips create a juvenile appearance. As for the hair color, vivid ones work best for petites, but make sure you don’t go too far with the color as you may look immature.

Boyish figures

Boyish silhouettes need volume when it comes to hairstyling. The idea is to add some curves and body. Medium curly or wavy hairstyles work well offering the necessary curves in order to balance the figure. Long hairstyles are a smart choice as long as you add volume, while shorter haircuts are a matter of taste as they can make you look even thinner. Long bangs, asymmetrical and layered hairstyles can also flatter a boyish figure.

Try to stay away from extremes. Pay a lot of attention when adding volume to your hairstyle and avoid backcombing too much as your body may look disproportionate. In the same time, avoid using the hair straightener as you will look even more boyish and straight. A too short haircut gives you a masculine look. The right hair color can warm up skin complexion.

Curvy

Curvy women need to be very careful when choosing their hairstyle. In this case too, is a matter of proportions and avoiding any extremes. Therefore, if you have a fuller face, stay away from too voluminous, big hair. Too much volume at head level ads extra pounds to your face and body. On the other hand, super short, close to the head and curly hairstyles are totally unflattering. The best choices are medium, long wavy, layered hairstyles and those with side-swept bangs.

Tall figures

Tall, athletic figures are considered as being the perfect body type, and therefore, any hairstyle flatters them. Still, you need to pay attention to proportions whether we are talking about long or short, straight or curly hair. However, when going for the classic ponytail choose one with more volume or one starting at the crown of the head.
