A Word of Thanks.....

With the onset of Fall, I compose this note as the month of September is coming to an end.

I look around sadly at the long pants, long sleeves, and covered frames that, just a few weeks ago, were so much more interesting to behold.

I am filled with sadness.

The past month has been a record-breaker for Tattoosday. When we first spun off from BillyBlog, we garnered 120 hits in the first three weeks of our infancy.

Last year, I was amazed by my progress, in September '08 we racked up 13,351 hits.

And this September, when I anticipated a drop off from a record August, Tattoosday soared into uncharted territory, on pace to top 38, 000 hits on the last day of the month. This may not seem like a big deal, but blogging is often lonely, and the number of hits is often the only measure of recognition we receive.

So, the summer ink is running dry, but despair not, I will continue to spot tattoos, although perhaps not at the dizzying rate of the past few months.

I have a backlog of posts and a head full of ideas to keep us entertained as the leaner months loom.

I thank you all for your continued readership and participation. I am very appreciative of your support!

Little Dead Riding Hood

I met Amy in Penn Station earlier this month and she agreed to share this, one of her eight tattoos:


Actually, she has since e-mailed me about her ninth, and I am waiting for a photo.

This tattoo represents an undead version of Little Red Riding Hood, which is Amy's favorite fairy tale.


She also likes zombies, so it seemed like a good match.

This tattoo was inked by T.J. Mcinnis at Mcinnis Tattoo Company in Providence, Rhode Island.

Thanks to Amy for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Britney Spears Tattoos

Britney Spears certainly has her fair share of tattoos scattered around her body, most of which are quite small in size.

She has a fairy on her lower back, a cross on the inner hip area and a pair of lips tattooed on her wrist, to name a few.

The tattoo on Britney Spears' neck are Hebrew characters, which translate to the word "Healing". This tattoo has since been removed.

Here are some great photos of the tattoos below.




Zack's Spectacular Foot Tattoos

I met Zack earlier this month as he was walking north on Broadway. But, like many Tattoosday encounters, the ink I spotted (on his leg) was not what ended up here on the blog.

Behold, Zack's feet:

These incredible foot tattoos were created by Beef Stu at Bleed Blue Tattoo in Lexington, Kentucky. Zack recently moved to New York from the Bluegrass state.

Zack told me that the idea for these tattoos came to him in a vision. His right foot tattoo is comprised of a DNA strand, the key to life.
And the left foot. with the skull, represents death.


The word "LIVE" is spelled out above the pieces, with "LI" on the right foot and "VE" on the left. The tattoos, together, Zack told me, serve as a "reminder not to get caught up in the shit" and to "make the most of what you can between life and death".

It took three or four sessions (the feet are not easily inked) for these tattoos.

Thanks to Zack for sharing his amazing foot tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Stephanie's חַי

It was a string of elephants marching above Stephanie's right ankle that first made me stop and talk to her, but she offered up this, her first tattoo, as well:


She started with the Chai at the top of her left breast. At the time, Stephanie was dating a guy who was covered in tattoos., She was 35, uninked, and going through a mid-life crisis. The shop was in Brattleboro, Vermont, but it has been gone for years.

She liked the tattoo so much, she later added the Star of David and the leaves. The Jewish theme was a tribute to her cultural identity as a Jew.

It somehow seemed both suiting and slightly inappropriate to post these tattoos on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year on the Jewish calendar.

I am waiting to hear back from Stephanie for clarification on her string of elephant tattoos. But, in the mean time, I thank her for sharing this deeply personal tattoo with us here on Tattoosday.

Danieli Pagano, Borboleta, Fada e Rosas, 168

"Olá, me chamo Danieli tenho 26 anos e tenho duas tatuagens maravilhosa que significam demais para mim, uma é no pé e a outra é nas costas, e ambas possuem rosas e borboletas. Elas significam minha transformação, ou seja, as borboletas significam algo saindo de um casulo, uma coisa feia e se transformando em algo belo maravilhoso e as rosas, o surgimento da beleza, algo florescendo, pois eu tinha 140 kg há dois anos e meio atrás, passei por uma cirurgia de redução de estomago e eliminei 65 kg. É através das minhas tattoos que simbolizei minha transformação, pois eu era algo feio, sem vida, escondida e hoje sou bela, criei vida; minha vida floresceu. Foi através de um grande profissional que conheci e me ajudou a realizar esse sonho de ter essas tatoos, inclusive a fada também, que simboliza a beleza para mim.

Danieli Pagano

O reponsável por essas obras sensacionais, que amo demais chama-se Robson, conhecido por Rob. Ele trabalha no estúdio na região da zona leste, na Ponte Rasa, Avenida São Miguel, n° 4678, o estúdio chama "Eduart's Tattoo e Piercing", lá trabalha o Eduardo e o Rob, mas quem fez minhas belas tattoos foi o Rob, inclusive a das costas ainda não está pronta, está em andamento. Desde já agradeço a atenção de vocês e espero que sejam divulgadas as minhas tatoos e minha história. Grata."
