Thick skin

Numen Tattoos n Skins store freebie - Capernycs crabs

I'd intended to wear nothing but underpants to show off these vivid, imaginative tattoos from Numen Tattoos n Skins, and then I was hit by a wave of shyness and put on bloomers instead. Yes, I fail at nakedness!

Oh well. What matters are the tattoos, which fired my imagination because of their color and shape, as if a pageful of doodles crawled their way off of a notebook and onto my skin. I love the cheeky positioning, too -- these are no shrinking violet tattoos, they'll take over your outfit if you let them.

and Sexy Octopi Unisex TATTOO

I do love tattoos in SL, the less realistic the better. Would I ever get two octopi tattooed over my boobs IRL? Absolutely not. What better place to explore the boob-octopi side of my personality than SL?

(The rest of Axis Mundi is lovely, do explore! It is the home of another ~silentsparrow~ location, as well as To a T and a number of other fine shops. The artwork by 713 is especially worth visiting!)

This is the first time I've seen such a unique choice of subject for a tattoo set -- and also the first time I've seen truly original art put to use. Bravo to the creators.
