Hello fellow necromancers,necroscopes and wamphryis-I am seriously considering getting one of the necroscope book covers tattooed on my back,its pretty large and an tattooist?,told me it would cost around 400-600$I was wondering if you guys could help me pick for the coolest one.I will probally tally the suggestions and see wich one gets more votes and go from there.Plus,am i the only one in this site with a tattoo?(I only have one other)If not where and whats yours?
March 22nd, 2001, 04:11 AM

Hi Dark..or is it Fang...Me & Mazrah have one or two tattoo's between us. I have a couple on the vampire theme, one of my lady Mazrah on my chest and a bat on my wrist.
I will be getting the cover of Avengers done as soon as i can make up my mind where to put it. So being as it looks like your in America,i vote for the cover of Avengers.
ahhhh yes now I remember you guy's in the states don't have Avengers yet.....hehehehe http://www.brianlumley.com/ubb/wink.gif

Moving this to Settlement guys...

Well me personally I have had 5 tattoos done. Two I had covered up because I got tired of them and they were the first I had ever got. Came to the realization that they weren't so hot. *L*
Anyway I have an Eagle on my upper right arm about to land on it's kill, a full body wolf on my left shoulder blade and the the head of a werewolf on my upper left arm.
As to what you should get..... no matter how the poll goes do a tattoo that appeals to you not anyone else. It's an expression of ones self not someone else's opinion. Also check with certain tattooists. I know with most tattoos they can "scale it down". Basically shrinking the size of the tattoo so that it doesn't take up more room than is needed. Find out first for sure before committing.
Then and only then get the ink done. Good luck and enjoy.

Hi DFF...I'm not sure of the size, cause I can't make up my mind where I want it.
Yet again I have to agree with Canker(it must be a dog thing)Make sure it's what YOU want.

see thats the thing,I like all of them! Its just I can not decide.Thats why Im doing the poll.thanks.

Personally, if I were to get another simple tattoo, it would probably be the original Necroscope skull...you just can't go wrong there. But if I were to go all out...the cover of The Last Aerie would make an excellent back covering!

Yeah Deano, id go for Nathans idea. The original skull would be a really good idea because most people would recognise it, wouldnt cost much and, HELL it would mean alot less pain!! http://www.brianlumley.com/ubb/smile.gif i'd like to get it done myself but im rather skint and can't afford it. but i say go for it man. send a photo when you get your tatto, whatever one you decide on.

Would really like a Necroscope tat, but it wouldn't match my other 6 (soon to be 7).
I hear that young Pybob has recently acquired something along the lines of this topic though...!
March 24th, 2001, 06:19 PM
AHHH! She's given you away, Pyb...you gotta tell now! http://www.brianlumley.com/ubb/icons/icon26.gif
April 21st, 2001, 12:57 PM
:cool: Try for something big , coz all of the covers have soooo much detail , & big tats are definitely more rewarding for you .... maybe go for a collage ? firstname.lastname@example.org
April 22nd, 2001, 07:17 PM
Apart from getting my nipple pierced this weekend :eek: I have booked up a visit for my tattoo, which wiil be a half sleeve covering a couple of old tats. I'm going to have the cover of lost years 2, as the main feature but hope to have a couple of the other skulls added if i can find the space, smile.gif
If and when i sus out how to post pictures, i'll post before, during and after photos.
May 6th, 2001, 03:21 AM
Hi everyone, I think the original Necroscope skull it a pretty cool idea, coz it's the first and all that... I have a silhouette of a bat in front of the moon on my left shoulder blade, often gets mistaken for batman although it looks nothing like it!!
A collage suggested earlier is probably a good idea, take a bit from each!
May 15th, 2001, 02:36 PM
Original George Underwood Necroscope cover sounds a grand idea, so good that it may already have been done... tongue.gif
May 31st, 2001, 04:01 AM
I vote for these:
1. Necroscope US cover
3. Last Aerie
4. Blood Wars. (that's bright enough to wake the dead)
May 31st, 2001, 04:58 AM
Hehehehe...Well I've just had the first of 2 sessions on my Necroscope tattoo....and I've got to tell you I'ts bloody brilliant, better than I thought.
It will be finished on the 20th June. I have taken pics of b4 during and will post when finished.
I hope a photo will do it justice smile.gif
My first session took 2 hours just to do the outline :D smile.gif :cool: ;)
May 31st, 2001, 05:06 AM
Can't wait to see those pics deano...send 'em my way if you need help posting them. smile.gif
I figured I'd jump in on this and let you know the Wolfe is considering getting some ink done.....not a Necro cover, but something along those lines.
I've somewhat commissioned a local artist known to some of you to come up with a wolfe design for me and I'm also thinking of having the site's skull placed somewhere....
Just how painful are tatoos.....? smile.gif
May 31st, 2001, 10:29 AM
Shadoe....... I don't care what people say... Tattoos hurt! *L*
Macho men try to say they don't ... real men admit the pain. *L*
I've had 4 tattoos done on my upper arms (two covering up two older tattoos) and 1 tattoo on my left shoulder blade.
The artist told me at the time of the full body wolf on my back to expect it to hurt more than the arm. Apparently the nerve endings are much closer to the surface of the skin on your back than your arm so it hurts a hell of a lot more. *L* :eek:
Now as to how it feels on your arm?...... Think of a deep cat scratch that is non-ending. As long as that needle is doing it's work that's how it felt to me. Painful but annoying as well.
But if you're passionate about what you want for a tattoo, you'll go with it. Pain only lasts so long. The tattoo is forever!
May 31st, 2001, 12:11 PM
I have seven and in my experience...Canker's right! It hurts!
Arms and legs are bearable but stay away from the spine and the nipples. I almost ended up with a small black line next to my nipple because that's all it took for me to say..." STOP!!" But being a manly sort of man, I continued...it still hurts to think about it.
If I can find something that looks real enough, I plan to get a simple strap put around my left wrist...with a half-twist. :D (Unfortunately I live in one of only 3 states where tattoos are illegal...so I have to go to Texas! :()
May 31st, 2001, 12:17 PM
You're kidding? Tatoos illegal? Ok, so what is the penalty if you get caught having one done - or better yet - if you have one?! lol... smile.gif
May 31st, 2001, 12:24 PM
The penalty for having one done here in good ol' Oklahoma is AIDS or hepititis or something equally as lovely and unsanitary.
The cops probably wouldn't do much about it except close down the shop, (apartment...garage...etc.) There is a cop living down the street from me that is covered in tatoos...he gave me the number for someone here in the city he uses...but I'm not taking any chances! They're trying to pass a bill to legalize right now...crossing fingers... smile.gif
May 31st, 2001, 01:42 PM
uhhhhh...stiff penalty. Yeah, I'd go to Texas or anywhere where the place is sanitary! smile.gif
May 31st, 2001, 03:26 PM
Tattooing illegal? EEK!! wht about piercings, are they legal?
Regarding pain, I always think that being tattooed feels like a white hot, fine knife being drawn through your flesh. Painful, but not unbearable (sometimes almost pleasurable, especially the filling in)! Except on the back, I found that very painful indeed... «and the understatement of the year award goes to...!« :D
I«m planning on getting a tat on my lower back next (dunno when!), which I just know is gonna be agony! Still, gotta be done.
Deano, can«t wait to see your tat, you gotta show us the minute it«s done, or else!!!
May 31st, 2001, 03:36 PM
Piercings have been legalized only within the last couple of years...hopefully the needle will be soon as well!
May 31st, 2001, 03:45 PM
No prob's I shall send the pictures to Shadoe on or about the 21st of june, a day after i get it finished smile.gif
As to how painfull....sometimes the pain is enjoyable, sometimes it isn't :confused:
My Necroscope(Lost years vol2 by George Underwood)was a cover up job, I had 2 tats covered and it was 2 hrs of outline which is probably the most painful part of tattooing.Yes it is painful but bearable, I must admit though after 2hrs my arm was more numb than in any pain smile.gif
May 31st, 2001, 05:12 PM
I live in NH but was raised in Mass.
In Mass. it was illegal until this year to get a tattoo. Piercings I believe are still illegal.
I think in NH the only thing they frown on when it comes to tattoos is a tattoo on the face or neck area. Something to do with changing your distinguishing features. *L* Must think we Hampshire people are all convicts or something. tongue.gif
June 1st, 2001, 05:38 PM
A thought just occured to me, that your constitution in the U.S.A. declares the right of all Americans to 'bare'arms......hehehe is that why you can't have tattoo's :D tongue.gif
June 1st, 2001, 05:56 PM
Hardy frickin har har! Your sooooo punny! Everyone loves a comodian! :D
...and don't get me started on that subject anyway...effin politicians! :mad:
Well, Canker...I suppose its down to 2 states where it's illegal! MA was one of the others that I had heard you couldn't get one...the guy didn't know the third state but thought it might be New York...? That seemed odd to me!!
June 2nd, 2001, 11:15 PM
:rolleyes: i dont suppose anyone would like to know that as well as my wimpy other half i also had a tattoo done. it's not a necroscope tat, but i did design it myself and even the tattooist said it was really cool tongue.gif
smile.gif in case your interested it's a arm band with an underwater cartoon theme i suppose thats what you would call it?
that was pretty tender on the underside of my arm but the rest was fine smile.gif and it took over an hour to do also no whimpering from me :rolleyes: oh yeah nathan i have a half band of tribal on my wrist which was the least uncomfortable of my tats to have done, and incase your wondering i have 6 altogether :D
June 3rd, 2001, 12:00 AM
Can't wait to see how it came out, Deano - which reminds me - i'll have to get the life streamers on mine finished before long... and the other arm started on!
Got to say now it's healed properly it looks grand, almost as if it was always supposed to be there?
And the sensations when it was being done... Yes it hurt but it was delicious.
Does this mean that the KeoghCon's going to turn into a tat comparing contest... perhaps we ought to give a prize for that too? lol
June 3rd, 2001, 08:37 PM
Hi again Mazrah! smile.gif I'd heard the wrist wasn't very painful...does yours go across the inside? Where your veins are? Seems like that might hurt a little...?
I really want to find something that will be realistic before I have it done. So far I haven't found anything I've been happy with...or pictures of anyone's work that looks like they could pull it off. I saw in a magazine a guy who had pictures of his kids put on his belly. Looked realistic as hell but the artist was from Germany! :( Ah well...someday!
...and on a side note...which one of you got into Lumley first, you or Deano? And how did the other get the other interested? I've been trying to get myMandi to read them for years!! No luck yet...
June 4th, 2001, 04:15 AM
most of my wrist band is on the inside across the viens and it just crosses the little creases where you bend the wrist, which was the only troublesome part 'cos every time i bent it, it would crack. did'nt hurt though and it heald ok smile.gif
on the other subject well naugty of me really but i fancied reading necroscope when i first saw it so i bought it for dean as a birthday present :D only trouble with that was i had to let him read it first ;) but i've allways read alot of horror or fantasy after all it's alot more exciting than most stuff you read :D
June 18th, 2001, 02:03 PM

Once again thanks Shadoe. :D smile.gif
June 19th, 2001, 06:36 PM
Wow Deano, that is a tat and a half...! I'm totally impressed!
June 19th, 2001, 11:03 PM
Hey Deano M8... thats great smile.gif... Love it :D
June 20th, 2001, 01:17 PM
Ok I've been to the tattooist's today.....I've got some good news and some bad news.
The tattoo is looking truely awesome smile.gif ....but he ran out of time to finish it, and the next available date for him to work on it is on August 8th.
No worries though, Mandy has taken a photo and I've put the film in to be developed, I will be putting it up in the next couple of day's.
Although it isn't finished, when you see the photo, I think you'll agree it's the dog's bollock's :D :D
Or should I say the Dog Lord's Bollock's ;)

Ok Ladies & Lords, hopefully some time later today my good m8 Shadoe will be posting the latest picture of my tattoo.
There is still some more colour to be done, but I think you'll agree it's coming on nicely..... smile.gif
my apologies for the quality, and that I'll post another photo soon smile.gif
June 25th, 2001, 08:15 AM
What's the expression I'm looking for again?
That's seriously amazing, great, (super, smashing? tongue.gif )
Words really do fail me...
June 25th, 2001, 10:14 AM
Awesome Deano.... truly awesome!!!!!!!!!!
June 25th, 2001, 06:04 PM
Excellent Deano! That's one hell of a cover up!
A new guy at work has one that's pretty cool. It's a rooster with X's for eyes, its toungue poking out, and a noose around it's neck.
He says he's won many bets in which he claims he's got a cock that hangs below his knee. The tattoo is located (yup, you guessed it) on his right calf, just below the knee...
Not that I'd ever do it, but I thought it was pretty funny on him! smile.gif
June 25th, 2001, 06:17 PM
Hmmmm......... I bet that guy gets razzed alot as to what the tattoo means....
Like he told you... "a cock that hangs below his knee" or might it be that he's "choking his chicken." *L* :D :D
It had to be said.
June 25th, 2001, 06:29 PM
Yup...didn't think of that...but I'll be sure to bring it up at work tomorrow!! :D Thanks!!
June 26th, 2001, 05:14 AM
Thanks for the compliments guys, if you carry on like that I think I might even blush tongue.gif
I should be getting it finished at the start of August, but in the mean time I'll try to get a better picture taken smile.gif
June 27th, 2001, 03:16 AM
Deano nice meeting you tonight. Hope we talk again soon. That is one hell of a tattoo.
Btw to everyone else, I am still alive.
June 27th, 2001, 11:27 AM
Peter you live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:
:D :D :D
June 28th, 2001, 07:03 AM
Yeah, nice talking to you too Peter....the best thing about it was, I didn't even know that my computer had an in-built microphone :D
I must admit, to a techno-phobe like myself it blew my mind away, being able to talk to you guys in the states through a monitor smile.gif
July 21st, 2001, 12:08 AM
Ok - mine is nothing compared to deano's..but it is done and in the Pictures and Misc forum in it's own thread.
Getting a wolfe tat next Thursday... smile.gif can't wait....
July 21st, 2001, 05:01 AM
Very cool! You're a big brave dog!
Did it hurt?
Ahh...sorry...that stupid question belongs in another thread! :D
July 21st, 2001, 09:20 AM
Did it hurt... what a silly question... :D Truth be told - no - it didn't. There was one area that was a bit tender, but it wasn't really pain, just annoying.
Now that it's been there all night - yeah, my arm is sore there, but it just feels like I slammed it into a wall, sort of a dull ache... nothing more.
Maybe I got it in a nice unsensitive spot, but I was surprised it didn't hurt - I was expecting it to from what I had been told... maybe I'm just tough as nails though too... :D
July 21st, 2001, 10:50 AM
If you didn't already know it, it has just been confirmed....
Shadoe is one cool Wolf
Nice one m8....( you don't mind if I borrow it do ya) ;)
July 21st, 2001, 09:12 PM
Your tat is great, ShadoeWolfe! And as far as "Pain"...they tend to hurt more on a bony prominence; shoulderblade, ankle, etc. Then there's body piercing...PHEW! If you are pleased with your body art, as with all good things, I believe it's worth the pain. Can't wait to see your wolf tat, Shadoe!
July 22nd, 2001, 06:32 AM
Well I have to say Deano & Shadoe... Both excellent Tattoo's :D
Now if I can only decide what tat to get done next...
I was thinking about a bust shot of Nestor and Carmen on my upper right arm. Or the cover of VW 1 (UK), or the Devetaki one... so on... Arhhh I hate decisions...
Any suggestions gratefully recieved ;)

July 22nd, 2001, 10:42 AM
My only advice to you Creech is to make sure which ever one you choose, It's because YOU want It..and don't be persuaded into getting it done for any other reason. ;)
July 26th, 2001, 07:48 PM
Oh Shadoe m8 that new tattoo m8... lets see find a good reply :D
******* excellent :D
July 26th, 2001, 08:01 PM
Ok it's been decided...
I am going to get a Nestor and Carmen tattoo... the head and shoulders shot... in black with their eyes feral red.
July 26th, 2001, 11:38 PM
a wise choice :D
The cool thing is all the tattoos in these threads should be unique(at least for now)
Oh and just incase someone is thinking I'd like to join the BL site, but I don't want a tattoo...I't's not compulsary tongue.gif
July 28th, 2001, 01:51 PM
