CLAME for screaming alt. And thank you to my beautiful wife Trudy for the idea, the 45 minute application session, and the always artistic eye.

On Mondays, they would remember the times that they lived in the forest, next to the hills of Wilamando, near the quiet river. They would draw on rocks and stones, dreaming of the future and of the things to come. He would hide on these days, because they thought his face was a rock. Some days they found him.

will you go to work with it on?

brandon says:
@mikedemonk I'm ordering yours from the vineyard right now, so it'll be a few weeks for yours. But it's worth the wait.

@michaeljstraub I usually angle my face so you can't see them.

@keifel - I was planning on it (it wouldn't be the craziest facial hair thing I've worn to work), but it was already burning my face by the time I took the shot, so I had to quickly scrub it off. Sadly, this was the most temporary of tattoos. I plan on getting one once I've reached some weight loss/health goals, though. Maybe not on my face though.

I would say "what @mOtke said." But as usual, I have no idea what he said. This is an awesome idea, and done perfectly.

I dream of a time and place where something like this is acceptable. I would totally get something like the Maori tattooed on their faces if I could keep my job. I'm not a Trekkie or anything, but too bad Romulus isn't a real planet.

Screaming alt is great, but this one is better, imo. Beautiful work on the tats, if they are permanent, I'll be nominating your for awesomeoff again

You freak me out. Just sayin. ;)

brandon says:
@cdub Just did it at home, and while it looks like it's all hand drawn, it's actually a bunch of transfers cobbled together. It's a total of 15 transfers, which still took Trudy about 45 minutes to plan and apply. We then wet the face down once more before the shot to bring the color to life.

For some reason the black and red make me think "checker board" despite the shapes on your face.

CLAME - for important information on face tattoos
Posted: Jan 4th, 2010 - 5:35pm -
Dschonn says:
I love the design. You could definitely work this into a Halloween costume, if you're into that kind of thing. Also if you can get it not to burn.
