After countless hours and thousands of dollars spent putting pictures on your neck and your throat and your knuckles and your chest and your hips and your legs and your shoulders and your abdomen and your face and the palms of your hands, what makes you any different than a basket case who goes to see the plastic surgeon twice a year? Your huge diversions for people’s judgmental eyes just have stories behind them.

No. 4 April says:

i really like her, and i think she looks great (no the outfit, the tattoos) except the one under her chin

No. 5 rachel says:

I like her as well I despise the outfit though. It is the worst outfit I have seen in a long time. with the exception of Britney’s VMA performance outfit.

How about I am getting hit by a hurricane and didn’t even know one was in the gulf. Man this is gonna be fun. Oh well guess I am far enough in land that it won’t be too bad.

No. 8 scandelirious says:

I don’t know much about her… she could be the nicest person in the world, but personally I find the abundance of ink all over her body quite trashy.

No. 9 Heidi says:

A pretty young woman who gets here neck and hands tattooed shoudl remember that in twenty to thirty years she is going to be an oddity, a wrinkled bitch with faded tats that nobody cares about. An actress who does it shoudl talk to castingdirectors first. Stupid.

No. 10 Asa says:

When did it become an attractive look to wear your hideous leopard stretch pants so tight that a roll of fat pours out of the top? It looks like she put on that jacket, ripped the seams because it was so small, then decided it looked good anyway and went on her way. AND it’s not like she’s fat either, she is a perfectly normal size, she just looks big because her clothes are posh sized.

Hurricane Humberto is a bastage…my car got a little flooded this morning. Grrr.

Thus, I am working from home this morning.

No. 12 spielster says:

@ Heidi -
She’s not an actress - she is a tattoo artist. And she loves the way she looks, with all her decorations. And we will all be wrinkled bitches in 30 years, she will just be a bit more interesting then you.

No. 13 sar says:

what? i haven’t heard about humberto. i would have remembered something with a sexually charged name like that. i’m sorry girls! nothing like an unstoppable force of nature to make the rest of life’s problems seems small. the only storm tips I have are, go into the most central room with no windows… that’s tornado advice, but it’s all i’ve got. oh! and this box of stuff from my closet that i am having my assistant send to you.

i love kat von d in that avril lavigne way (wait for it) how they both seem like nervous little kids. i think avril’s needs to fade into adulthood, but kat - it works for her. still i can’t watch her show - she uses too many filler words. and this outfit…. not ok, even for her.

No. 14 Cait says:

Humberto is on my evilbadnostopnow list. According to the NHC, the jhorts-wearer and I need to move our cars to higher ground tonight…the worst has yet to come.

Sigh. Grr. Sigh.

Send it all to Humberto, Sar. ;)

No. 15 rachel says:

I like her tats. I personally think too many tats are trashy but she makes them work without looking nasty. I guess ink works for some peeps.

No. 16 eeks says:

I totally agree —
While she does pull it off somewhat stylishly, it IS as bad as all the plastic surgery types, etc. Same deal. Great point, Cord.

Boy she is shaped WIERD!!!!

No. 20 April says:

its funny, i see tats as art and self expression, i dont think of it as changing who you are and how you look, but allowing others to see whats under the skin.

i like tats, even too many like hers. She looks great.

something about von d’s voice though, i just can’t stand it.

No. 21 Cait says:

Mine is actually on my hip, and not for public viewing - it’s just a permanent reminder to me of something I survived.

Posted: Sep 13, 2007 at 1:18 pm
No. 22 admittedlyaddicted says:

I can’t stand her voice either April…but I have a love/hate relationship with tats. I want more, but I want them cover-up-able. Mostly because there ARE functions I would prefer to attend without a tattoo showing.

I have an affination with her stars too though, and I would love some. I guess I don’t think it will get me hired too many places as an accountant though - cept maybe the Tomba Corp.

Posted: Sep 13, 2007 at 1:42 pm
No. 23 April says:

oh yeah i know. i love them but i wont be get them. im not spending 100G on law school to be unhireable.

i hear ya, i have a similar relationship, i love them, i love poeple covered in them, for me, mine are and always will be hidden

Well, I think we DO need an accountant, adad.

okay, but i might become tattooed up. :)

No. 26 evil twin says:

I think every one of the execs has tattoos except for me. I am still deciding what tattoo I am getting to honor Mr. Jefferson. I am seriously considering, “I’m right, you’re wrong. Yes, always, and especially now. Best, Cord” on my left butt cheek. I might have to start on the hip part though because that’s kind of a lot for one little ol’ cheek.

No. 27 ghostgirl says:

She was so thin on L.A. Ink! What happened? She looks chuncky again! That MUST be why she is trying to cover up so much.Problem is,too much clothes makes you look even bigger. I love tattoos,I have 4 of them,but they are in places where I can cover them up. I know she tattoos for a living,but can anyone say OVERKILL!!!!!!! I don’t think ANYONE should have them on their face-let alone a woman!! What are those stars on her face gonna look like in 20 years?Oh wait,maybe by that time they will droop down onto her boobs!!!!!!!!!

Posted: Sep 13, 2007 at 2:20 pm
No. 28 rachel says:

She has money do you honestly think she is gonna let herself get wrinkles when she gets old. She may look like a barbie doll later but that face will be as smooth as a babies bottom.

No. 29 jujubees says:

It may look like a little crazy if she has like a tummy tuck and half the tat is cut off.

i was picturing her with a neck lift and that tat all stretched out, that’d be sweet.

It would be like one of those optical illusion pictures. I can never make them out though.

i have a beef with those married to the sea people, so i am trying not to buy their shirt. but hey they had no problem stealing my ideas, so maybe i can just take this one, sell it for myself, and call it even.
