Helloraiser Kitty by bataleigh Helloraiser Kitty by bataleigh
Not an entirely original concept but hey...it makes me giggle every time I look down at my arm. Also...my first below-the-elbow tattoo! AAAAACK! We still have some details to finish up (the box) but I go back on the 22nd of Feb. to add some work ot my clockwork heart and we'll finish it then.

Helloraiser Kitty by ~bataleigh "Well, it's a different spin on the typical Hello Kitty image. The artist has done a great job in coloring, shading and the black work looks solid. I would say that the box needs work but it looks as though the person whose arm this is on is already going back to have it finished. I like the fact that it appeals to the cutesy-bubble-gum-little-girl as well as the horror genre." ( Suggested by misspixie93 and Featured by Battledress )

Moll, how can you say it has no thought behind it?
It obviously has meaning for her.

I think it's a beautiful tattoo, I love Hello Kitty and love Hellraiser, and wouldn't hesitate to have something like it, except that now I know someone has it, so no point.

:) Yeah, not a good thing to wake up and check DA to. I didn't want to look at them anymore, although I deeply appreciate everyone who stepped in before I could even respond. ^_^

And thank you! Despite all the negativity I still love my tattoo, not that the opinions of people I don't even know would dissuade me. :P

Exactly, so a few people are jealous, whiny, whatever; you like it and when it comes down to it, that's all that matters.

Oh wow. I hope it isn't permanent, I have a feeling that you're going to deeply regret this in a short amount of time.

Not that it isn't neat. That's a cute little concept, but only with ink and paper. It doesn't appear to have any real thought or meaning to it, which I believe is the entire purpose of getting a tattoo. But if you're comfortable with it at the moment then more power to you.

I guess I should say that this is my 10th tattoo, including one design that covers my entire back from nape to waist. I only regret that some of them weren't bigger or more intricate. I put a lot of thought into everything I put on my body. I'm not an 18-year-old girl who can finally get tattooed and went with the first cute thing I came up with.
This particular tattoo carries a lot of meaning for me. I've been a major fan of the Hellraiser movies and the stories by Clive Barker that they are based off of for years now (10+ years truthfully). I've also loved Hello Kitty since I was a little girl. So, this is a melding of two concept that differ so much yet are a part of my personality. Therefore this suits me in a way it may not suit other people, especially for permanent body art.

I think of all the tattoos she regrets, the celtic knot on her lower back is tops on that list. Trust me, this is one that suits her personality perfectly.

It is permanent, just like my other 9 tattoos. And yes, most people consider Pinhead scary.

I realise now that my comment was offensive, I just... yeah, looking at it, right away I think, it's just something I wouldn't like to have on my body because it doesn't fit my taste but after thinking about it, if it makes you happy, then I hope you're right. :)

It's okay. I've heard all sorts of things in regards to my tattoos over the past 10 years and I should be more immune but it's something near and dear to my heart (literally now). I think the best reason to get a tattoo is because it makes you happy. :)

I agree. It's just a bit too dark for my tastes and frankly the tattoo itself I believe could have been done better.

But I'm happy for you as long as you're sure about something like this.

Design-wise, I saw a version of it floating around the web about 10 years ago and thought it would be a perfect idea for a tattoo. I found a nicer/clearer version and used that as a starting point with my tattoo artist. She changed things around and we added a few things to it before we finalized it and got down to the pokey part.
Idea-wise, it's my favorite icon and my favorite movie 'hero/anti-hero'. It really represents the duality of my personality. My husband says I'm both cute and evil so it fits. :p

lol I've always wanted a tattoo. As soon as I'm old enough I'll get two. One, a flaming skull, on the back of my neck and two, a dragon a friend drew for me, on my back. Unfortunately Mum says over her dead body so I have to wait a few more years. For me to be eighteen, not for Mum to be dead. lol
