Patchwork Heart Tattoo



A little while back I posted Selena’s patchwork heart with sparrows tattoo. I wanted to share another one here that I quite liked (and no, it’s not just because I’m a total sucker for tattoos in this location on pretty girls), by Keith at Red Lantern, in San Diego, CA. Each of the different patches represents a different influence — or heartbreak — in her life.

    uh…is that her chin in the upper left hand corner? if so, it appears as though she’s one of those “butter face” girls i’ve heard so much about.

    [email protected] being a butterface.
    and yes… it seems that she does seem to be a… butterface! yeeeeeeeee

    butterface= a girl who looks good everywhere… but her face. hence the name. :)

    Heh — never heard the term butterface. I’ve always used “brown bagger” to mean the same thing (ie: put a bag on the person’s face). If they’re really bad, then they are a “double bagger,” which actually just sounds sexual now that I think about it…

    I can’t seem to view Benjii’s page. Is it because i’m not a member of IAM? I’d like to see your tattoo. :P

    I’d really like it if everyone would stop calling this person, who’s face you cant even see, a butterface. even if it turns out to be a not attractive face, its not very kind of any of you to be saying such things. please, grow some maturity and talk about what this post is about, and thats the tattoo. which i love, and i love how representative it is of people in her life. and the color work is fantastic.

    I second that kuroneko. It’s kind of ironic that a couple of these same people were just complaining about too many pretty skinny girls being posted on modblog, and now everyone’s talking about imperfection.

    mm nice one,

    not saying she is a ‘butterface’ but where i live (syd, aust) we call them a prawn – you rip their heads off and they’re all good.

    Strange, I live in Sydney (near anyway) but I’ve never heard that before lol!

    What an awesome tattoo, I love it! It’s very much like something I’d get… :)

    (But I won’t, since it’s already taken, I’ll have to think up a new idea!)

    Posted on 03-23-2006 01:17:56 by Me
    I like hers much more than Benjii’s.

    Posted on 03-23-2006 21:21:31 by BadlyDrawnGirl
    wow.. i didnt say she WAS in fact a “butter face”.. i just asked what that term was refering to..

    READ SLOWLY. Dont skip words.
