I wasn't dissing your tattoo

Sorry, missed the joke.  Very Happy

I used to work with this guy who was always trying to get me to go to those CoSM parties. Also my sister has been on Phish tour many times. I just like teasing hippies.

Ha, yeah, I liked to tease em too til it became obvious that I was too close to being one for it to work out. No Phish for me though. Smile

Hey Em, my fiancee has a lotus too! Right where your new tat is, and about that size. She just got it re-touched and it looks awesome but she won't let me post a picture.

When I first asked her about it she wasn't very forthcoming because it was some hippie shit.

Oh, no problem. Just thought I was taking a little extra tattoo dissin'--which ain't no thing, everybody likes what they like!

For some reason I didn't see the photo of your tattoo, it's just now showing up. Definitely some weirdness on my end. Very sorry it seemed like dissing! Your tattoo is gorgeous!

Ha, no worries, and thanks Bernard. I am seeing a spot where my guy forgot to "connect the dots" (can't have any broken circles! goes against the geometry!) so I guess I'm in for a touch-up in three weeks. Also I am glad I have really open shoulders because it is fucking hard to get ointment on the middle of your back when you don't have anyone to help you.

I'm so with you, Em. Thou shalt not compromise the SACRED GEOMETRY.

If anyone's curious, here's a couple pages from the book Sacred Geometry by Miranda Lundy that show the derivation of the "flower of life" circle pattern in Em's tattoo. Pretty simple & remarkable, IMHO.

Note: this isn't the loony book I was talking about. Lundy's book got me interested in these patterns, so when I saw there was a whole book about the flower of life, I gave it a go. Evidently I'm a Taurus, too, because I just can't make the jump from 'neat tricks with circles' to Ancient Alien Argonauts in Africa.

Yep, definitely no AAAs in Africa, but it is pretty cool that you can find depictions of the pattern or similar patterns in temples and holy places from a bunch of different cultures around the world. Apparently neat tricks with circles are popular!

Wikipedia article for spirographs is pretty classic: short history section; short description of use; abandon all regard for the intended audience with a massive dump of involved, unelucidated mathematics

Wow, this is awesome. Every wikipedia page should have an unasked-for mathematical analysis.

Hey guys, next week when my new tat is officially "healed" I have to go in for a small (free) touch up on a spot that the guy missed in the first place. Would you tip for that, and if so, how much? I feel weird handing over some small amount of money, especially if it's not expected. I was kinda thinking of taking him a pack of the smokes he's constantly running out of and baking cookies for the whole shop, since I get tattooed by another artist there and am friendly with the piercers. Thoughts?

I would tip for it, in the same way that I tip for a comped beer.

He's correcting an error he made, though, right? I'd bring the cookies BUT! I have never had a tattoo, so there may be some etiquette there with which I'm not familiar.

and now we'll see a new form of body modification where people go stand in thunder storms, holding umbrellas a loft.

It only lasts for a little while, though. It's just capillaries bursting.

Yeah, but you could get the pattern traced while it was there, and then tattoo it on permanently. Or not.

And you typically don't want a tatt on your nose, or cheeks, I'd've thought.
