I never wanted to be different, I just wanted to be me

Thanks to Black Ink Pen for sharing her BME-slogan tattoo (I think this is my favorite of the various slogans, although “It happened when I was abducted by aliens” is near the top of the list too), appropriately customized to match her own story and personality. Tattoo by David at Desired Skin in Big Rapids, MI.

  1. Thanks very much for the feature. After the day I had, this was very much a welcome treat!

  2. “It happened when I was abducted by aliens” is my usual story when a plainskin asks “why?” with a look of resentment on their face.

  3. I don’t mean to be a bitch when i say this, its more just out of curiosity, andit might just be the picture that’s alittle off, but that person is either extremely jaundice, has a massive bruise around her neck that’s almost healed (therefore yellow) or she’s used the wrong kinda fake tanning stuff… either way it looks reaaally odd, especially that it stops right high up at her neck/body limit as opposed to like.. a bikini or swimsuit top tan… am i making any sense?…

    ..or maybe i’m color blind or something.. *sigh*

    Eitherway, that’s been one of my favorite slogans from BME since the start, and I still love it, therefore its a MARVELOUS tattoo!! *thumbs up*

  4. In regards to the above, that picture was taken right after it was done, and thus was really red – Shannon (or someone) edited it to take some of the redness out – I promise my neck doesn’t look like that in the original

  5. did she cut off her nipples too…? poor, sad creature… also, the letting doesn’t seem to flow too well… the curviture of the lettering on the left looks much sharper and the left looks not so… oh well, could just be the angle of the pic… at least it’s not mine…

  6. Art doesn’t have to be perfect, Gato. Sometimes it’s the little imperfections that make it that much better. Not that there are any, in my opinion. I think it looks amazing the way it is.

    And honestly, I don’t understand the need for negative criticism. I won’t blame it on the fact that you’re probably a dick, though. Maybe you’re just upset because your mom won’t let you get a tattoo of a butterfly on your ankle or something.

    I think it’s marvelous. Excellent artwork.
