Not quite as extreme :-P But these are the tattoos of the Liverpool/Denmark footballer Daniel Agger, which I found quite interesting with the descriptions of what they mean.

Posted Image


The three Vikings at the bottom of his back says:
"Intet Set" which means nothing seen. The Vikings eyes are sewn together.
"Intet Hørt" which means nothing heard. The Viking has no ears.
"Intet Sagt" which means nothing said. The Vikings lips are sewn together.

The big Viking in the middle of his back is Ogier The Dane, or Holger Danske as he is called in Danish. It is a statue which sits in Kronborg Castle in Helsingør in Denmark. It is said that if Denmark ever comes in trouble he will rise and defend the Danes. The Viking Holger Danske carries the sword Curtana which carries the inscription "My name is Cortana, of the same steel and temper as Joyeuse and Durendal". It is supposed to have originally been Tristan's sword, and gained the name "Cortana" when it was "cut down" to fit Ogier.

Around the big Ogier is four major tombstones representing the graves of four legendary Danish Kings:

1. Harald Blåtand or Harald "Bluetooth" Gormsson, Son of Gorm The Old and Thyra Dannebod. He was the King Of Denmark from around 940 til 986. The nickname Bluetooth is said to have come from Haralds love of beer or mjod as it was called back then, which eventually turned his teeth blue.

2. Svend Tveskæg or Swein or Swegen Forkbeard. Was the son of Harald "Bluetooth", King of Denmark from 986/87 to 1014 and King of England from 1013-14. He is supposed to have gain the King status after
fighting his father over it. The name Tveskæg/Forkbeard means two beards and he is meant to have divided his beard into two. Swein Forkbeard is said to be the founder of Swansea.

3. Gorm Den Gamle or Gorm The Old. King of Denmark from 936 - 958. Gorm was married to Thyra and ruled the Danes from the city of Jelling. He and Thyra was the parents of Harald "Bluetooth" Gormsson.

4. Knud Den Store or was the son of Swein Forkbeard and was the King of Denmark from 1018-1035. He was also the King of England from 1016-1035 and of Norway from 1028-1035.

On the top of his back you can read the proverb 'Mors Certa, Hora Incerta'. It means something like 'Death is certain, you never know when'.
On the left side of his chest, the names of his brother and sister is tattooed.

On his left arm he has several Dannebrog tattooed. Dannebrog is the Danish name for the Danish Flag. On the back of his lower left arm he has a crying clown tattoeed. The clown is holding a yellow nine-ball.

Aggers ankles read the inscriptions 'Pain is temporary, victory is forever'.

On his upper right arm Daniel has yet another big Viking with the inscription "Remember You Will Die" and "Remember You are A Human Being".

Unfortunate? Who are you to judge? That is an amazing piece of artwork right there. This whole notion that tattoos "ruin" your body is just a stupid taboo people have. I'd be proud to have something that impressive if it meant something to me, and I'm sure he feels the same way.

Oh you misunderstood me, I love tattoos. I've actually got a sitting now on Tuesday, for my sleeve.

I'm just saying that his back piece looks like ass. It's a badly done tattoo, which is unfortunate!

Im gunna get a tatoo soon, some text in thai and french. i dont get whats so bad with tribal/text tatoos, i reckon they're the best looking to be honest. nice and simple!

but im sure that a lot of people who get major tatoos will regret it in later life. like all the older emos that got green skulls with some a7x quote tatooed and then realised that yes, being an emo is gay. lol

i was thinking 'nothing lasts forever' in thai on my underbicep (think thats what its called lol)
also im going to get french text saying 'life is but a blip' or something along those lines. get it just to the right of my crotch so only a few people will see it. :thumbsup:

I think text tattoos are boring, uninspired, and a waste of space. The way I see it, anything you can spell out in a plain text tattoo can be expressed in a much better and more creative way as a piece of art or incorporated as a piece of art. That's how I'm doing mine. More importantly I haven't talked to a single tattoo artist who think text tattoos are fun to do; which is basically all that needs to be said on the matter.

It's also a world of difference between tattooing a7x's band logo in somebody's kitchen and going to a good artist and get something like this:

That's incredibly well-made and something you'll be proud to wear for the next 20 years (because after that you probably won't care).

oh yeah that is good!

but a lot of people do get [cabbage]e tatoos. and also, personally, i wouldnt want something that big, it sucks but tatoos give off a bad impression for work and stuff :thumbdown:

bleak world we live in eh?

but i dunno, i dont reckon text is uninspired, its just a different style. Especially if its a quote that means a lot to you. for example, my friends got roman numerals of the day her dad died, its just like a permanent way of reminding yourself of something. plus i personally reckon more than 3 coloured tatoos look kind of messy most of the time.

simple designs look really good i reckon, its not uninspired. sometimes less is more :thumbup:

Instead of just getting the numerals tattooed, she could have done an awesome-lookin' headstone with the date on it, or something her dad was very passionate about (like a car engine with the numerals carved into the metal if he was really into cars, etc.) To me, that would just become a way more personal sort of tribute than just putting a date in small letters on my skin. But obviously if she's 100% happy about it then that's great for her. And that's really the thing, if you still want to get a text tattoo after considering all of the alternatives, then go hog wild. And if you're sure you just want to get one or two tattoos in your whole life, then getting text tattoos isn't a big deal. One of my friends got a pretty big text tattoo on his underarm when he was younger, he sorely regrets that decision as he now wants a sleeve, but it's really hard to cover up such a big tattoo and not have it look like [cabbage]. So yeah, placement and size is important as well!

and yeah i have been thinking about what to get for about a year.. :thumbsup:

one thing is im getting it in thailand/cambodia/laos havnt decided yet. but i met some peple that got drunk and got thai text tatoos, basically the guys just wrote stuff like 'im a druken idiot' or 'im stupid' or something like that lol! bit worried :P

Loved tattoos ever since I was around 12, but I'm starting on my very first one tomorrow actually. I've gone back and forth from so many motifs these past 10 years, but I finally settled on this one around a year ago. A John Bauer-inspired nature theme going from my elbow and stopping about 5 cm from my wrist. Black and grey with some very muted colours mixed in.

And I'd advise you strongly to not get the tattoo done in any of those places, there's a lot of shady tattooists there with no concern for your safety or any health regulations. So there's a big chance you could catch Hep C, or even HIV if you go to the wrong place. If you do get go there, do research beforehand. Talk to tattooists in your country, they probably know some good parlours over there, because there definitely are some incredibly talented south Asian tattoo artists, you just need to know where they are.

... And yeah, if it's text look up exactly what you want beforehand, and how it's spelled. You don't want [bleep]face permanently inked on your body.

apparently theres a traditional tatoo method over there using bamboo? i might hve to check it out. but actually from what ive heard most places are pretty sanitary nowadays, especially in thailand. its a suprisingly clinical country! but yeah, if they arnt pre sealed im walking out of that place sharpish!

good luck on tomorrow! how many sessions do u need? u shud clearly put some pics up when it's finished!

bon chance

Yeah, you should be okay as long as you know what parlour you're going to. The bamboo needle stuff sounds pretty neat. I've heard it doesn't hurt as much as with a machine, and it supposedly heals a lot quicker, but I haven't seen it for myself. And thanks, I've got 3 sessions booked, last one on April 15th, but she admitted to being awful at estimating how long tattoos this big take to do so it could be one more sitting, or one less. Hoping it's one less because she's not exactly cheap and I'm a poor student.

older emos... a7x quote tatooed ... being an emo is gay. lol


1)
are you thai or french?
2)
tribal tattoos are the mark of tools and douches [unless the person is actually of that tribe]
3)
older emo and a7x should not be used in the same sentence
4)
how have you survived this long on the internet?

I'm not a fan of tribal tattoos. Go on a night out to any city here and you'll see them everywhere, same with the Chinese/Thai/Korean/Whatever text. If I'm getting something permanantly tattoo'd onto myself, I'd have it something unique that I'm not going to see a similar variation of every time I go to the pub.

I've got an idea of what I plan on getting done but it'll be a while yet before I've got the spare money for it and theres a few things I want to do before getting a tattoo.

Cheers. Not sure what mushrooms they are, but they do look a lot like liberty caps, hah. Hadn't originally planned on there being any actually, but she really wanted to do mushrooms. Now I can't imagine the tattoo looking anywhere near as good without them, they really tie the entire thing together (much like a rug heyo). I dunno if you can spot the snail in there, which is another thing I hadn't planned on having, but now I think that snail is dope as [bleep]. She also basically free-hand tattooed the spider, it was an empty area she was itching to fill with something. "How about a spider?" "Yes!".

It did hurt. Some areas more than others. Closest to the wrist was pretty bad, as well as certain areas on the underarm - it was worst where the arm bends though. Elbow wasn't as bad as I'd imagined. I didn't eat anything during the entire 3.5hr sitting, which didn't exactly help with the pain either.
