Well i figured Id post up my newest tattoes. There are pretty much Nietzschean based (in my eyes). The exception are my military ones.

FALLEN SOLDIER- Back shoulder left side

Not sure if I violated any TOS, but i seen some people posting cars and stuff, so I figured I would be ok. If there is a problem with any one in particular, MODS, please let me know, I can take that one off.

Just thought I'd share some of my recent additions.

Wow dude, those are pretty cool. I'm too big of a wuss to do that! The autopsy incision is one I have never seen before.

The autopsy incision only really hurt in the center, I have minor pectoral excavation (sunken chest sorta) and my breastplate is very thin. I thought he was trying to ink my lungs a few times haha:D

I still have alot to do with my chest piece: like a few scalpels sitting beside the incisions and perhaps a death certificate. Haven't decided yet.

On my back (under the Fallen soldier and the Iwo jima flag raising), I plan on getting a full back piece of the POW/MIA flag

My left sleeve is almsot complete (all the pics werent uploaded). Its spider themed and webbing connecting the individual pieces.

My right half-sleeve theme is "primal lust" My artist is drawing up a few ideas based on what I told him I wanted. I just got a naked winged fairy on my right outside with an alien face (all human body with wings, but the alien face)

My right leg is going to be Dionysion based: chaos, ecstasy, wine, and irrationale

My leg left is be (havent started it yet) Apollo based: Rational, the yin to Dionysus' Yang.

I got this idea from the Neitzschean philosophy of the Umbermench, the mastering of the apollo side as well as the Dionysion. It is explained in "And Thus spake Zaratustra" as well as touched on in "Human, all too Human" and "Ecco homo".

I have one tattoo on my upper left arm. I got it when I first joined the Army back in 1985. I don't understand why people cover themselves in tattoos though.

Not bad, certainly not my taste but it doesn't mean I'll bash them.

Dankir- Tattoos kind of come with a lifestyle or just for fun, there are any number of reasons for people to get covered, sometimes just to be different. I have 7 now and plan on getting more. To me it is a journey through life portrayed on my skin at different points in time. Such as my first at age 17, a few in between and then the latest was on my trip to Stockholm, I know have a Winged Wheel inked on me with a couple other things to commemorate the trip to Sweden.

I hear what you're saying. There are times when I wish I never got my tatto and there are times when I think i'd like another one. I just don't get the whole cover your body with tattoos thing.

I'm with you on the first two but you lost me on the others. I understand that not every tattoo has to have some profound meaning behind it, but an autopsy incision? Please explain that one to me because I just don't get it.

Nice Tats!

Lloyd, congratulations on intimidating me. Not with the ink. Those two sentences I highlighted have too many words that I can't read. That speaks volumes considering I am someone who is big into the early childhood literacy thing.:)

Interesting. I enjoying looking at tats, but never pulled the trigger on getting one when I was younger. No regrets either way, although I still wouldn't mind having the US Navy submarine qualification pin "dolphins" somewhere, perhaps shoulder or bicep. I doubt that will ever happen though.

I'm curious too

I chose the autopsy as a symbol of the death of the human shell and the resurrection of the ubermensch. Like i said before (I think) I am not finished yet with the chest piece.

In response to why people have them...everyone will say different reasons. But to me it is like a polaroid, the flesh as a canvas capturing the good (and the bad perhaps) of a life. There is a 20 post reply I could tell about why I chose each one and the story behind it. But to keep it brief (yea the post whore keeping it brief), its a series of slide shows on one screen. They aren't for others to understand moreso to me as a silent (but vivid) reminder of a certain point of my journey. Although, I do love sharing them.
