It's lonely inside these walls
Tall and wide, with the appearance of stone
To ward off enemy combatants
All too well it worked! Clever me!
Even allies wouldn't try to breech
The foreboding walls of porous rock
Its expansive appearance keeps this heart
Protected; gaurds this machine from the
Bitter-sweet liberties of emotion
There is no cage quite like safety
Just ask the birds
Forever safe in isolation

Opprotunity Scars
Yeah, I'm tired of being broke.
Sure, I count my change and budget strictly.
Yeah, I've tore apart a loaf of bread for two day's meals.
But I've always had running water.
It might have been cold, but it was clean.
Yeah, I took some trauma as a kid.
Sure, I witnessed beatings, observed the power of a kitchen knife;
But with time, I gained the opportunity to abandon tragedy.
I might have a lifted scar from a cigarette,
But I don't have to feel the singe of ash ever again.
There are those that still drown in this pain;
Those that have a reason to cry out
I have it good
And I thank God for that.
Beyond strength, I can't call my experiences negative
It's these experiences that have given me a purpose
And a passion
I'm going to save lives.

I've been doing a lot of research lately on tattooing, it's methods and history in different cultures. One of the styles which fascinates me is Japanese 'Irezumi' (Tebori, for the method, not the style). This is where the ink is inserted under the skin by hand, with out a gun, using a single needle.

After doing some further research, it appears that this style also has a modern counterpart, known as "Stick and Poke," which utilises essentially the same tools as Irezumi, but typically less sophisticated than in a professional Japanese parlour.
As with any art style, the quality among pieces varies, but there are some truly amazing works out there.
I'm considering fixing up some equipment and giving it a go, not only on myself, but I've discussed with other the possibility of inking them.

There's a lot of hate out there for this method, and for people deciding to ink themselves, but i think it's a quite wonderful means of expression, with a methodology that goes back centuries to the earliest instances of tatooing.

I will be working on my equipment on Wednesday, and probably working on the tattoo (the Kanji for Tiger) over the weekend.


Also WHOA! I'm gonna dye my beard ginger!

19, Martial Artist, Regular artist (-ish... I'm more like a child with some crayons :P ).
Live in jolly old blighty, but no, I don't have one of those lovely accents the rest of the world seems to think we all have....
Barely kept sane and alive by marginally lethal amounts of coffee (which, if it was possible, I would seriously take intravenously).
Like a lot of random stuff, I'm a pretty eclectic person, so that confuses people.
5'9", shaven head, blue eyes: Terrify damn near everyone I meet :D
You can hit me up at for any reason you wish :)
That's about it really.... o.O

Oh... And that picture ^ That's me doing Kata on a roof. Because I am more hardcore than you.

lol that was crazy. I can't wait to see Tae Kwon Do. I wonder if they could spot kung fu and wing chun influenced Korean Karate?
