Design Designs That Make Conventional Tattoos Look Like A Joke


So you feel like a rebel just because you got a tattoo of the infinity symbol on your wrist?

In a perfect world, nobody should tell you what to think because we were all born with that sort of freedom. This also means that we have the right to make decisions over our own bodies. However, the individuality that characterizes us is influenced by our social relationships, and any action or decision is guided by the opinion of others, sometimes rather forcefully. And yes, this includes your tattoo design.

In recent years, turning your skin into a canvas has become a widespread trend among those who seek to enhance their corporal beauty. Thanks to this, tattoo artists have created plenty of styles and techniques to furnish the skin with colors, as long as you're brave enough to withstand the pain inflicted by the needles.

A tattooed body can hypnotize anyone who is lucky enough to stand before it. In addition to a wide variety of colors, a well executed design can boost the sensuality and confidence of the owner. The irresistible SuicideGirls are the finest example of the power of tattoos. They are girls with rocker looks that pose for nude or semi-nude photographs which form part of a digital community of the same name.

In this pin-up blog, these girls are the focus point and here is where they can freely flaunt their likes, tattoo designs, and life plans. While in some places the stigma towards tattoos remains as harsh as ever, this site goes against this establishment, proving the beauty of tattoos.

The name of the site comes from the novel Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, and it is a nod to the rocker attitude these women convey through their style. They get in the way of established rules, and this belief has been endorsed by a partner of the company, Selena Mooney:

"SuicideGirls was the term used by some friends and I to describe girls we would see in Portland holding a skateboard, wearing hoodies, and listening to Ice Cube from their iPods while reading poetry by Nick Cave. They are girls who don't fit into any conventional subculture and don't define themselves based on musical taste like punk, metal, goth, etc. I think the only classifications right now people identify with are mainstream and outside of mainstream."

One of the most important aspects of the SuicideGirls is that they do not seek to become models; they send their photos just because they want them to be shown on the site.
It is not requirement to be a professional model, the only thing a woman needs to become an oficial SuicideGirl is the attitude and to register on the official site. By doing so, they earn up to 500 dollars each time the site makes use of their photos and videos.

The reason we have looked at the designs of the SuicideGirls is for them to serve as inspiration. The focus here are not the tattoos per se, but the confidence the women have in showing their bodies as artistic canvases. Any tattoo you decide to get should be carefully thought out and there should be no outside influence egging you on. If you get a tattoo to impress someone, then in the future the design will lose importance and perhaps you will come to regret it. So, as you look at the SuicideGirls, think about the attitude you have towards life and how you can best express it through your body.
