A couple of cockmaster(piece)s

Unfortunately it’s rare for genital tattoos to really be masterpieces of tattooing, even with the best artistst holding the needle. Next to a scrotum, it’s about the worst skin to work on. But just because it’s not the best canvas, it’s hard to stop people — tattoo artists and enthusiasts included — from having fun when there’s a penis involved. Happened to see two tattooed members this morning — on the left is a “NO PAIN / NO GAIN” (I guess that means he’s into S&M and can only get hard if you’re pushing needles into his taint) piece by Veronique at Original Sin in Belgium, and on the right is a “firecracker in bed” and “red rocket” (I thought it was the “love bomb” but I was corrected) themed member care of Jon Gray and Chris Costa at Brass Monkey Tattoo. I’ll leave it to you to figure out who shoots the ink and who receives it. Anyway, if you want to see more, BME has built up a giant gallery of genital tattoos (both male and female) over the years that you can explore if you’re a member.


Return of the Thunderbird

Back in June we caught a glimpse of Borneoscorpion2008′s impressive thunderbird genital tattoo.  Well it turns out that the thunderbird is just one part of a larger suit.  I had to do a little blurring, so to see the unblurred version just click through.

The Mighty Thunderbird

It seems that Mr. Borneoscorpion2008 has managed to transform his cock into a massive thunderbird.  On top of that, he’s had his legs and groin tattooed to fit in with the theme of his bird, and the result is striking.

To see the rest of the tail, you’ll have to keep on reading.

Thunderbirds are definitely go here.  The split head, combined with the ampallang and the hafada really make the “tail” a force to be reckoned with.

Not sure which artist gets credit for what, but he lists the artists as, Hannes & Yvonne from Blut & Eisen in Berlin, and Roland & Ralf from Visavajara in Freiburg.

Eye Spy…

Now you’ve got to be asking yourself, what could possibly be so interesting that I’d need to open up my horribly outdated copy of photoshop?

Well, lets put it this way.  I couldn’t decide if it counted as a wildlife tattoo or not, but it definitely is some kind of animal.

This interpretation of a scorpion was done by Jackie Rabbit, Star City Tattoo, Roanoke, VA.

What’s better then a colectomy? A trip to Reno, no doubt!

Rob and I both have made a few post about “beauty over harm” where someone took their self inflicted scars and either reworked them or covered them with a more artistic form of body modification. Yet, there is a whole other category of beauty over harm and that is those people who’s scars were not self inflicted. Often times we see women who have had nipple removal or full mastectomies due to breast cancer enhance there new altered appearance with tattooing. Sometimes it’s cosmetic tattooing to try and recreate what once was there, other times it’s artistic tattooing which takes the body part in a totally different direction than nature ever intended. Either way, it’s empowering to the wearer and something I whole heartedly support and encourage.

Below is a different example of that sort of mod, a tattoo over a colectomy scar.


What lies beyond the gates to “the biggest little city in the world”?, I am sure we can all guess, but I’ll put the full picture beyond a click through with the submitters description.


This is a tattoo of the Reno Arch done over the scar of my colectomy (colostomy surgery). It was done by Brandon Collins at Nightmare Tattoo in Reno, Nevada. The scar is about halfway up the R through halfway up the E. It is so awesome to have this instead of the scar to look at and I would like to share it with others interested in redoing scars, so I am submitting it to your blog.



Here’s the thing.  Every time I tried to think up a headline for this post, my mind got bogged down in dirty jokes.  So I just decided to focus on what’s important.  And that is the adorable mouse tattoo.  Now, there’s nothing mod-related under the black square, so you’re pretty much seeing the point of the post without missing anything important.  But for those curious, you can click on the mouse to see the uncensored version, and start thinking of some of the headlines I was tempted to use.

And if you don’t want to click it now, you can see it any time in the female genital tattooing gallery.
