Well, I want to get it inked. I was wondering what it looked liked if someone got it already. Do you mind if i do? I'm getting it the end of Jan or middle of Feb and more then happy to send you a picture. I'm thinking it will be colored though instead of all black, or maybe the wings colored while the body is black.

if you want a tattoo of this, go ahead. Just be sure to note me with a picture of it! And make sure the tattoo artist doesn't keep whatever picture of this you show them; they could use it on other people otherwise and I prefer to be asked by people first rather than this going into major circulation. Thanks for enjoying it though! It's one of my favorites, too :3

*snicker* were you eating Skittles? :P

risa-roo Featured By Owner May 25, 2009
I don't know when I'll get the tattoo, but when I do get it, I'll so send a picture. And I'll make sure they don't keep the picture.
Nope nope, I wasn't eating skittles....although, now I wish I had some. lmao. :D

Skittles are awesome, but you have to get the original ones :P the special edition flavors are just odd XD

I'll be excited to see it XD I love it when people are interested in my tattoos. Thanks for that

risa-roo Featured By Owner May 25, 2009
Yes, only the original Skittles is mouth worthy. All the others suck HIV infested sores. 'Specially the chocolate ones. Ewwww.

Anyone who isn't interested in them are crazy and I'll slap them with some cheese.

Hmm, can I have your opinion; where do you think would be a good spot to put the tattoo?

:iconcrystal-rex:
crystal-rex Featured By Owner May 25, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
oh don't get me started on the chocolate ones and how horrible they are XDD

I want to see someone get bitchslapped with cheese, I really do XD It would just rock.

My personal opinion is that this tattoo would look absolutely best on the back (upper or lower), however, cheaper variation could be on the lower neck, which would look right, and then on the upper arm. I personally have a few upper arm tattoos, and though it might be smaller, they're easy to hide for workplaces and they usually can get quite a bit of detail in. If you want to spend a bit more, though, I would go with back XD it was made so it would look good there :P

When I first heard of them, I thought they would be yummy, but then I popped one in my mouth and pretty much puked. Eww.

It's funny to slap people with cheese, cuz their just like "Okay....ftw just happened?!"
>:D

My father was saything the same thing, about putting it on my back. I think I'm really like the idea of putting it on my upper arm. :D

Upper arm doesn't hurt that much XD plus most of my tattoos that I got there only cost around 60 bucks, give or take, especially if they're only one color.

Plus cheese makes that awesome cheesy squish sound that only cheese may dare make XP

XD there are just some candies that shouldn't be made, ne?
