    Lev 19:28, Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD

    I’m pretty sure they pointed out the verse to show the irony of that tattoo, pointing out why they have that verse in the first place. they werent saying you shouldnt get tattoos, they were simply pointing out irony, give um a break guys.

  2. yea i like the skater one..xcept the skater writing..i just like the font…but yea…how do u guys have after care for these? i mean it in ur moyuth and all..annd they fade hella fast huh?

  3. yeahh i got one 3 days ago that said love. and all you can see is the LO…probly didnt have a good tattoo artist but nobody else would do it. it didnt hurt too bad either

  4. I just got mine done last night, I love it! It was swollen for maybe an hour, and feel totally fine today. I don’t care if it fades, it souldn’t if done right, what matters is that I did it, and that it means something to me : ) THANKS KYLE

  5. if you keep reading after that verse you’ll see where God says not to wear clothes made of two different materials, and not to trim your beard.

  6. Only 2 people besides me can see the tat that says “Lev. 19:28″ above and it doesn’t appear in the mosaic for the rest of you? Or the rest of you are just that dumb?

  7. It’s supposed to be a joke. Irony. And yes, I’m guessing the artist made that as an ironic jab at the bible and the typical religious person’s tendancies to nit-pick about which verses they’ll follow and which are “just implied” (i.e. wearing poly-blend clothing).

    I like tattoos (if tastefully done); I mean, art is art. I just don’t see the point in this, but maybe that’s me.

  8. I once met a guy who had tattooed “Get Fucked” on his inner lip so that it would be seen by police and screws when he got strip searched (this guy was in jail a lot).

  9. “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the LORD.”

    Leviticus 19 v28. Brilliant biblical verse to have tatooed onto your lip. ;)

  10. i want a inner lip tattoo but i read it was very painful. also i want something like “FR3$H” or along those lines. any ideas?

  11. Lip tattoos are expensive and you never kno how its going to turn out..i have “dude” written in my inner lip and the second “D” is all inky and alot bigger than all the other letters..pretty much it looks fucked if you dont care that it might not be perfect get one…im getting mine re-done tommorrow.

  12. how much exactly did your lip tattoo cost? mine wasn’t all that expensive.. i’m just being curious=)

  13. i just got my lip tattooed on last saturday and already the color is pretty much completely gone. i got the word love with a peace sign for the o and you can probably only see part of the v and the e now. its shitty that this is only the third day of me having it but im getting it redone for sure

  14. yea i got my inner lip tattooed yesterday and its basically all gone it says “LIVE” and the v is the only thing left touch ups are required to keep the tattoo from disappearing

  15. I’m about to get a inner lip tattoo next week when i get paid
    Its going to say “520″ in old english. Thats my area code =]
    But I have questions.
    How BAD does it hurt? hahaha
    so I can prepare myself =]
    and does the lip swell?
    blah blah blah <3

  16. I just had mine done at 4pm… it is now 2:15 am… so far no fading. My friend Paul did it. He has been tatting for just 6 months, but is a PERFECTIONIST, and his work is brilliant. I paid him $40 (just for the ink, plus he was fixing/redoing completely a 3-D lettering design on my upper arm that another guy initially did incorrectly).
    This was Paul’s first ever lip, and he was as stoked to do it as I was to get it. It’s rad, my bday happens to be October 2nd, when the Earth was going to end, according to Frank the Bunny in Donnie Darko (28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes & 12 seconds) so I got 28:06:42:12. If you’ve seen the movie, you know the design.

    Once my lip was dried off, Paul used a bit of deodorant after 1 failed stencil attempt washed right out. This one took nicely. There was minimal pain (and I am a WUSS!), no bleeding, no ink in the mouth, no drooling and no pain afterwards. I DID have to hold my own lip… if you have a low pain threshold, have someone else hold your lip. It only took literally 10 minutes. i was shocked at how quickly it was done.

    I will repost in a week or so to let you know how it is healing. Fading is a huge concern, and I know Paul is more than happy to do it free. He didn’t use any special needle or go deeper or darker than he would have outside the mouth. I am stoked!

  17. I’m getting one next month. I’m still not sure what It’ll say, I’m between GUILTY PLEASURE and SAME BLOOD. But I might as well change my mind.
    I don’t mind the pain. When I got my hip tattoo last year I was told it would be a bitch, and it didn’t even hurt (and I’m a wuss, seriously.) My only concern is that it fades too quickly and I don’t get to enjoy it for much.
    How much does it cost?
