    I HATE these fucking words. It's called a tattoo, or getting tattooed. Tattoo artists HATE hearing those words. Stop fucking using them. It's annoying!!!! Same as people referring to a tattoo machine as a tattoo "gun". It's not a gun, its a machine. :squint::squint::squint:

    Tat and Tats are fine in Australia. Perfectly accepted.

    Also, my artist from the other day gave me a little badge that said "JUST INKED" :ugh:

    Lets just say I didnt wear it.

    drunk posting FTW!!! :rofl:

    I do actually hate those words though.

    Mike Hunt - Yes a gun is a machine but most reputable artists will correct you when you call a tattoo machine a tattoo gun.

    The term "getting ink done" bugs the shit out of me.

    I've heard many different tattoo artists here call it "tats" "tat". I've never heard of "tatty" or "tattie" though.

    WERD man. Who gives a shit? If tattoo shops didn't have the douchebags who come in for tribal bands when they're drunk that use this terminology, they wouldn't have much business at all. Who gives a shit what people say as long as they pay, tip, and are pleasant.


    EDIT: And here is one of your posts from just a few days ago......

    :hsugh: Sarcasm? I've never used any of those words in a serious manner. It's not hard to say "tattoos".

    and as for "the douchebags who come in for tribal bands when they're drunk that use this terminology", we don't tattoo those douchebags at my shop, we do great business WITHOUT tattooing those kinds of douchebags. Come to think of it most shops do amazing business without tattooing those kinds of customers.

    tribal bands are way too common and leave little margin for profit. quick and easy for both involved.

    creative ideas that require both intense ideas/concentration from the artist, as well as intense scrutiny from the customer, involve far more.

    ill let him defend his own statement, though your argument against it is nearly futile...

    I've got tattoos all over me and I call them tattoos. I don't think I've ever used the term "I'm getting inked up" or "getting tatted up" seriously. I've answered a phone call while being under the needle and sarcastically said "I'm gettin inked up homie G dawg" as a joke.:dunno:

    I simply say I have plugs. Most people when they ask if the hole is really that big I say no to end the conversation before it starts.
