WE LOVE TATTOO-KOREA ♡

I finally received the package from my parents today (as the front desk failed to inform me that it actually arrived along with another package yesterday... fail fail fail as always!) and I'm beyond ecstatic! Yeah maaaaan! I can't open it until sometime tomorrow, though, depending on when my roomie decides to head out so I can record it (as part of an up-coming vlog) in peace. lol. So cute of my dad to mention, that I should make a video of me opening the box so people at home could see too. ♡
extra extra this girl got inked!
Anyway, I wanted to show you guys my tattoo! I got inked monday afternoon (do you guys remember me mentioning going in for a consult?) and I love it! I'm generally a sucker for text/symbol and number tattoos (dates, etc) and I love the colors, font etc. of my new tat so much. I know it's not gonna be everyone's taste, as people have different taste in tattoos as they do piercings, if they even like either of them. However; keep your negative opinion to yourself, as I'm not interested in hearing it at all. Of course if there was a typo, I'd understand your need to tell me (I'm a grammar nazi too) but since everything is spelled correct, I don't need your correction on anything. I'm also aware that a lot of people have not been exposed to a lot of italic fonts throughout their lives and therefore have trouble reading what my tattoo says. lol. I shall put "subtitles" ok, just so you don't get all cross-eyed and confused.
Also for those of you having trouble reading it, it says:
"your conscience is dirtier than money"
in black and red ink.

The meaning is rather personal to me and really hard to explain, so I won't really go into details too much, however I will give you the main deal: Generally many people are blaming money for everything bad, when in reality they, themselves, would most likely be willing to do anything to get money. So by their "conscience" being dirty, I'm simply saying that human greed is causing a lot of people to act irrationally, even though they're trying to point their fingers. It is also a "misheard" lyric by the GazettE (from the song "HYENA" (< I made it a link so you can go see what part of the song I could be talking about~ Hoho!)) that I've grown really fond of over the past 4,5 years. Haha! Oh Ruki.. you and your Engrish ♡

I got it done in Seoul at TATTOO KOREA. Definitely a place I'd recommend. Don't go to any cheap-ass Korean tattoo place. Many of them aren't legal/authorized to even do tattoos at all and I honestly wouldn't bet my limbs on it, if I were you. I was suggested to go to Hongdae for this one, but I looked it up online and found TATTOO KOREA that way. I wrote them an email about what I wanted, the owner replied and told me to come in for a consult to work on what I wanted. He's a bad-ass dude (who speaks English fluently, w00t) and he and his crew are epic as shit ok. They take their work very seriously and they're super good at what they do. I trust them 100% especially after mine turned out better than I'd expected. TATTOO KOREA even had a guy come in with THIS SITUATION going on (taken from Tattoo Korea's own FACEBOOK PAGE) after he got his tat done in Hongdae. As one of the guys commenting said: "Good tattoos aren't cheap and cheap tattoos aren't good." It's that simple. Don't compromise safety, guys. I'm definitely going back to TATTOO KOREA after this one has healed to get my next one.

Btw, did y'all see JEONGIE'S POST on her new super sexual sternum piercing? Hot damn, girl. She has a tattoo as well (okay okay I'm slow, but I wanted to make sure I got exactly what I wanted mhm.) hohoho! I'm one of the cool kids now! : P Admitted... I might go back again in January /snort. I'm sorry, but even while the guy was doing my tattoo, I was already thinking of what I wanted next. Haha! Crazy. The buzzing of that tattoo-thing is nice, alright.

Also I added a new layout! : D Do you like it? It's featuring JEONGIE!! I mean.. Hyuna. HAHA sorry but I seriously think they look so much alike!

  4. I really love your tattoo and i can recommend it.
    Never pay too less on a tattoo you will regret it... really. I saw a lot of ppl in my life who did that and the tattoos are really low quality even they didnt get any skin irritations.

    1. Thank you! :'D Yeah I'm really happy that I went to TATTOO KOREA. I paid a lot, but I regret nothing and I'm SO happy with what I got. The guy that did my piece was very patient and gentle and he took his time to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. And dude... the pic of the infected tattoo scared the shit out of me! :C I'd be CRYING myself to death if that ever happened to me..

  5. ... i just love that tattoo. the color and the font are perfect. gosh. ;___; i also love the text! your conscience really is dirtier than money...
    and yes, when you are paying from something that's going to be on you skin forever, you shouldn't be cheap then. u_u

    and i have a tiny request. :|
    can you please tell me what's "sorry for being this horrible person i am" in korean? i caught this from 2NE1's song lonely, but i don't trust too much in my skills finding out what that really is. 이런 못난 날 용서해 is straight from the lyrics, but i believe the person translating this song has had some freedom when translating it.
    thank you. (´wwww`)

    1. Haha thank you :'D

      Uhm, I'd love to help you but I'm hardly the right person to ask. Have you checked the official lyrics? My translation would be way simpler, simply because I'm not very advanced in Korean. 이런 못난 날 용서해 is from the lyrics, but sometimes (depending on the meaning of the song) it doesn't always make sense. 못난 basically means an ugly or terrible (+noun), so I'm guessing that the translation that you found is correct. "please forgive this bad/terrible me".

      I don't know if that even helped O_o a simpler version of what you said would be "난이런나쁜사람이라서미안해" (literally meaning: "I'm sorry for being such a bad person"). You should ask a Korean person! They usually know better ; D

    2. oh thank you so much! you really helped me. :3 i just wanted to know if it was right or something near what i thought, before doing something stupid.
      i wish i knew a korean person but i don't. :D but you helped a lot so thank youuu~ ♥

      Delete
    3. Doing something stupid? Now I'm worried about what you're doing with it! Haha! Well, you can go to thisisnotkorea.tumblr.com and send her an ask about it. The owner is Korean and knows Korean fluently - she also speaks English. So you can always ask her there. If you don't have tumblr, it could be a problem tho.. cause I'm not sure if she'd post that kind of replies on her blog. It's worth a try though :)

    1. Hahaha lol in Japan you're apparently super hardcore if you have tattoos! At least that's what my friend (currently living in Japan) told me! Hohoho! >: D I get stares here in Korea too, but nothing like what Simon and Martina said (they did a video about tattoos here and where to get them and the place they went to sounded seriously sketchy lol)

    1. Hahaha thank youuu! : D GO FOR IT! It didn't even hurt HALF as much as I'd expected.

  9. Love the tat! And I could read it without the 'subtitles' haha
    It turned out so well, congrats :)
    I don't think I'll ever get a tat only because I can't think of anything I'd want and I don't want to feel regret after etc, butttt I admire tattoos on other people, especially ones that are quotes and are meaningful :3

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha I think that's a great mindset to have! A lot of people prefer to admire tattoos on others.. I always knew that I wanted tattoos : D Not like in a bad-ass-Lil' Wayne-on-my-face-and-everywhere-visible-kind of way, but in a subtle and still feminine kind of way : D

    1. Hahaha a girl walked in right after me to get Chinese shiz on her arm! : D Luckily many Koreans know a bit of Chinese too (cause of Hanja) so I guess you can hardly get it wrong in Korea. KOREA FIGHTING!

    1. Thank you so much! : D I actually thought about getting a star on my arm, but I basically wanted that cause it looks nice! Haha, I decided to get only meaningful things. I guess being pretty is meaningful too - at least in Korea. : P I don't think I've seen yours! Did you put it on your blog?

  16. I think it's great that your tattoo has a special meaning to you, so many people get tattoos these days without thinking of the consequences and end up hating them in the future. I'm proud to say all mine have meaning too c: Looks good on you.

    1. Yeah, I agree! My ex got tattoos just to get them (and they were quite ugly tbh) and I don't wanna be like that. ALL my tattoos will have personal meaning. I'm getting at least two more in Korea (all my moneyyyz to TATTOO-KOREA hahaha!) and I've thought of these for a long time.. YAY for tatted girls with meaningful shit on their bodies! /hi5s/ Haha! Thank you <3

  17. THAT'S SO HOOOOOOTTTTTT OMG T________T I want more tattoos but can't decide on what to get next -__-;
    I really dislike the one I have lololol and I paid way overprice for it, so lame! -___-;;

    Hahaha aaaaaaaaaw I WISH I looked like Hyuna, she's so sexy!! D: Dai always says I look like Jea from BEG.. OMG I WISH THAT TOO!! I feel honored to be compared with such pretty ladies bwhahaha xD

    1. Whaaaat why do you dislike it? O_O I think yours is pretty nice! And it represents your heritage and where you're from! :'D You could get it covered.. but it would take up your entire arm :C
      Where did you get it done? : D I don't mind paying a lot for a tattoo.. I wanna make sure that it's a good place with good morals that does my tats for me. -nod-

      LOL WAT. You look a SHIT LOT like Hyuna ok! I'd say more like G.NA and Hyuna's love child! Haha assuming they had one, you'd be the outcome : P LOL.

      I MISS YOU TOO <3

  20. Very nice tattoo [and the meaning of it, too]! I'm a huge fan of tattoos too [maybe way too much]. I have 2 on my arms, and I pretend to close with tattoos at least one leg and one arm this year. That's true: when you like tattoos, you have a chance to become a tattoo-addicted, thinking on the next four before even doing the next. XD [it's happening with me, atm].
    I had problems with cheap tattoo artists, too [but not that terrible]. Now I need to do for the 3th time the same tattoo, to fix the problems of the other 2 tattoo 'artists'.

    1. Haha yes I know that way too well! I was still on the mattress-thing when I started thinking of where to get my next one.. Teeeeerrible! LOL
      Argh wat? Really? :C I'm sorry to hear that! Did the ink cause an infection or? My friend's tattoo got infected, but it wasn't due to bad work. She made some mistakes with it and it caused some irritation that turned into inflammation.

      Delete
    2. No not infecction. I was 15 and didn't had permission to go to a good artist, then I gone at an amateur one, then, I had a amateur-bad-looking tat in the end. XD Then I re-made it with 18, and now I'll re-re-made it again, bigger and better this time. Painfull, but oh well.
      And wow, what a terrible irritation, then! D: At least she could cure it without having marks of the infeccion in skin?

      Delete
    3. Ah that's terrible! It's always super sketchy when artists tattoo drunk or underage people.. At least in my opinion. If an artist will tattoo me while I'm drunk or even though I say that I'm under 18, I'll not go there. It's a huge risk and when people talk about getting tats while drunk I just head my desk and wonder how the fuck that artists expects to keep his license for long. -__-" It's stupid and not legal in most areas. It also makes it impossible for the artist to work properly as there'll be blood everywhere. -sigh-
      Yeah it sucked :C It's slowly getting better, but I think she'd need to get it redone..
