Fantastic! How was the experience?

That looks awesome and beautiful. Looking forward to hearing and seeing more.

Also, I really dig those plugs you're wearing. I'm a bit of a tech nerd myself. Very cool.

Sometimes I wonder if I can say anything in less than a hundred words.

The experience was nothing but positive. Surprisingly the neck and face were very easy sessions to sit through, although both sessions were fairly short. To get my face done now was especially meaningful as it has been a very hard week for myself and my partner and getting such an important tattoo was cathartic. I am so pleased with the result we've achieved thus far. My original intent was to go right into the background once the main 2 portions were completed, which is going to include the rest of my neck and down a couple inches onto my chest, but I'm thinking now I'd like to do the other side first and get the whole background done all at once. Where the spiral and church bars are on my neck I am going to roughly mirror on the other side with a reversed spiral. However, in the center I am going to have a chaos star and spiderweb, representing chaos and order because balance is an absolute foundation to my spirituality.

I'm so proud of you for living your dreams and fulfilling your personal desires. What helped you make the decision to have your face done as opposed to hands or back or another part of the body? Have people had any comments yet?

Eventually I do plan to have the backs of my hands tattooed. In fact, I pretty much plan to have my entire body tattooed as part of my full self transformation. As for why I did it first rather than waiting, it had to do with finding the right artist. When I met my artist and saw her work, I knew she was going to be the one to do it and it had to be soon. In a way, it was almost a spur of the moment decision at least as far as the timing goes and the specific images I desired. However, such has been the case with many of my tattoos. Its one of those things, when I knew it was right I knew it instantly and my face was no exception.

Hooray!!! I'm so happy for you, and it looks gorgeous. Are there any specific rituals you went through before/while/after the tattooing?

Thanks :) No specific rituals except a little light meditation before hand. It's been such an empowering feeling getting it done, as if I've passed some all important threshold. For me, this was a very important step on my personal journey.

Hi, guys! I have been interested in tattoos for a long time, I also have 2 tattoos on my arms. After reading your posts on the forum, I decided to learn more about tattoos on the face. And I found an excellent article about the tattoos on face http://tattoo-journal.com/25-b…..ce-tattoo/

I have no plans for facial tattoos.  I decided to keep my face/facial expressions clear of ink.  Also, my 5 year old girl asked me to never get one on my face.  With that said I do have tattoos on my neck all around and up the back of my skull.  I want one on top of my head too, but haven't decided on design except maybe a snowflake, an inside joke with my wife.

I'd love one on my face but I'll only go as far as my throat

Several years ago, I told myself I would never get my face tattooed but within the last year that thought escaped my mind and I got my face done. I got three diamonds on my bottom part of chin and a star on my cheek bone, I did them both at the same time. I plan on adding more to my throat up to my diamonds to blend everything together. 

However, so many people stare at you for having facial tattoos as if they don't know what to expect from you. Sometimes I find it funny and makes me want more but then there are days I kick myself in the ass for tattooing my face. Some people like to believe if you have tattoo on your face, you cannot hold a good job. Well I am a cosmetologist and an office manager. My office job is not hidden to the world, I deal with customers on a daily basis however I do get looks all the time.

If you do get one, make sure its what you want. Some days, I see my tattoos in the mirror and other days I don't, if that makes since. Some days, I really enjoy my tattoos and some days I don't. lol

Sounds like having my lip ring! Tons of people stare. A few ask the usual questions…does it hurt?….how do you kiss with it? I just remember how much I adore my piercing and smile. If someone driving stares, I may stick my pierced tongue out at them, just for fun.

Actually, it's funny, the reason I logged in today was to talk about facial tattoos and this was listed as a recent post.
I also had told myself that I'd not get facial tattoos. Mostly because of my job, I was a counselor and I know how important appearances are when someone is coming to you for help. It's their life on the line, so they would definitely assess my age, style of dress and hair etc, and would definitely be polarized as to my piercings and tattoos. Some would love them and others would hate them. Being young when I first started counseling I was already judged often due to my age, and often my facial piercings were a large part of this prejudice. So, I just kept getting tattoos where no one would see them unless I wanted them to, and figured it'd be a long long time before I'd even need to decide whether I wanted tats on my neck or face.
But then, unfortunately, a few years ago I became quite ill, and after a lengthy hospitalization and many tests I was diagnosed with MS. I made attempts to work less stressful jobs, but was unable to work even a few hours every other day. So, career no longer was a concern, it was dead in the water.
After I finally came to terms with that I began thinking outside the box with regards to my body mods. One of the things I suddenly realized I wanted…neck and facial tattoos. Funds have been a hindrance, but I still plan ahead for what I want to have done next, and I started putting a particular facial tat near the top of my list. Still though, I had misgivings. I wondered, what will my friends and family think? Will this cause negative reactions from people such as my doctors, pharmacists, bank employees? What if we need a car loan or want to buy a house, will I be judged negatively?
So, I discussed it with my husband to get his opinion, showed him what I was planning, and he told me he liked it and didn't see a problem. That made me feel more confident in my decision.
But then, a few months ago I suddenly came into a bit of money, and excitedly decided I would use a bit for the first stage of my facial tattoos. I told my husband, and he frowned and said he wasn't sure it was a good idea! I was crestfallen. Suddenly all of my concerns and misgivings jumped to the fore. As it turned out, a costly medical emergency prevented me from having to make the decision just yet, but so, I figured I could see what all of you think, and what your experiences have been after getting facial tattoos, or if anyone had any valid concerns for avoiding them. I'd really appreciate your feedback.
Thank you! :)

When I'm good, I'm good. When I'm bad, I'm even better. :D

I suppose it can be just because they like it, the way they like a tattoo anywhere else, or a piercing, or a haircut, or fancy clothes. And of course there'll be some people who do it for the attention and for the rebellious connotations and whatnot, can't put everyone in the same bag. Just like some people lift weights for athletic performance, some to make money off their image, some just because they like looking good and some to get chicks.

But of course you also have to be realistic. Society is still very close-minded and apprehensive towards anything that's too out of the ordinary and there'll be discrimination. And in some cases physical appearance does affect one's efficiency as a professional, like it or not. If you're an engineer working behind the scenes who doesn't really come face to face with customers, then it doesn't really matter. If you're a face for the company, spend a lot of time in business meetings and all that, well there's a reason why you wear a suit to them and not a t-shirt and shorts. A certain "squareness" does give an image of professionalism. Even if it's just a matter of image and that's futile and hypocritical, image sells. Ask anyone in advertising, they'll give you a ton of statistics to prove it.
But seriously…..what was he thinking?
