Tattoos help you play right? 😉

So we all know that tattoos help you play guitar right? So I got a new one last week. My old bat went from the first picture to the second. I also have a treble clef on the top of my spine. So what have you lot got?……

This is mine. It is from when I hit 18 years. Heavy metal had a big influence in my life at that moment, so I wanted to get it reflected on my skin. Didn’t help with the guitar though :joy:.

I have the goal to buy a Flying V just like the one I have in the tattoo when I reach and advanced level :slight_smile:

Tattoos only work in the correct combination with top hats and Bourbon

A treble clef on the outside of my right calf, and a shamrock with the words ‘Until we meet again’ on the inside of my right calf. The shamrock is in memory of my mom, gone 10 years already. The treble clef is obvious lol

Some cool images shared. I myself am ink-free … I’m a weeny and stay as far away from needles as possible. As for guitar nothing but practice to help me, I think even a few drinks would not relax and improve but rather ruin what I have.

I see, so so far it seems that tattoo ink maybe isn’t “magic guitar playing potion”…… maybe it is just practice :smiley:
Still cool though :sunglasses:

If you’re scared of needles I’m sure it really isn’t worth it :slightly_smiling_face:

Time spent in a tattoo shop could be time spent PRACTICING!

Just kidding…

I’m never satisfied so tattoo’s are not for me

Ha, I actually had my most recent one to help me stop practicing for a bit as I’d hurt my wrist :joy: (not too bad now).

There is also the point that money spent on tats could be spent on guitars :slightly_smiling_face:

For all the young people who are watching… I now have 4 children, and more will follow when they come to visit… 9-12-13-en(?) got addicted to “Justin”, … And for them i say, the advice I received as a teenager also applies to the older children :smile:… Do you like a picture or a text that appeals to you, print it and check it daily, after at least a year you still think it is a good idea to immortalize it … then you have made a well-considered choice, … so I didn’t find anything so beautiful a year later that I wanted it on me forever, and now I’m without tattoo,…
I was very happy with the advice from an older friend who doesn’t remember it when I came back to it 2 years ago…and he himself has at least 5, and some very large tattoos :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Only if you mix a drop off Justin’s blood in the ink…

Doh, of course, the missing ingredient :wink:

Yep, I’ve always waited a year before having one. Don’t understand people who get them on a whim.

My daughter has got loads and she ain’t got a clue when it comes to playing guitar, she’s a good singer though!

I just don’t like needles - I’ve had too many stuck into me (mostly blood tests :roll_eyes:) :joy::joy::joy:

One small drink and my fingers are did coordinate noodles! I agree, guitar puro.

At 56, I can now think of a few things that I could live with as a tattoo for the remainder of my life. Couldn’t have committed before, but age, marriage and children teach what commitment means.

That is probably why I can commit to learning guitar.

But as tattoos go, maybe I could be ready, but I have no one to impress and no need to do it for myself, so I will stay ink free, even if it impairs my guitar learning mojo.

Nice! This reminds me that Final fantasy did a collab a while back with fender to make a made in japan Final Fantasy inspired strat.
