What does it mean to bloodline a tattoo when talking about tattooing?
Dragonfly Tattoos - The dragonfly, like the fairy and butterfly tattoo is an extremely popular tattoo design for women. The design can be a small sexy secret or a large …tribute to the wild and free spirit that the dragonfly represents. The dragonfly is the power of light. The dragonfly inhabits two realms: air and water and passes the influence of both these elements to the wearer. The image of the dragonfly sparks the creative power of the imagination. Living in an aura of fantasy, the dragonfly's fluttering wings inspire thoughts of fairies and butterflies; bubbles and snowflakes. They flit from flower to flower, from tree to tree; settling on dew-kissed leaves and grass. Within sight yet always out of reach, the dragonfly has buzzed itself into the tattoo culture. Dragonfly tattoo designs are landing everywhere - on arms, chests, hips and tailbones! Now, instead of capturing these enchanting creatures in glass jars or nets, many people have decided to eternally capture them on containers of flesh. Blue, green, or violet; pink, silver or golden; the dragonfly has proven itself a deserving addition to the world of body art. Dragonflies lend themselves to so many other thought, ideas and associations that it's pretty much futile to limit the possibilities for a dragonfly tattoo design. Any color you like would be appropriate: silver, gold, emerald green, sky blue, grey, lavender, you name it. They can appear on ankles, thighs, backsides, lower backs, shoulders, armbands and breasts. Additionally, dragonflies certainly aren't limited to women! In Native American astrology, there is a strong belief that each person has a totem animal spirit which serves as their guardians and guides through certain phases of life. Often, an individual would have many different totems throughout life, some for just a time, some for their entire lives. And one of these totem spirits was the spirit of the dragonfly. It would adopt men and women, young and old. The dragonfly spirit means you must consciously make an effort to express your hopes, dreams, needs and wishes. The dragonfly spirit is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment; and the communication from the elemental world. Its medicine beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which need changing. You can turn to the dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation. Is the dragonfly spirit beckoning to you?

A tattoo is a permanent image on someone's skin. This is done by injecting ink under the skin with a sterilized needle. It can be removed but not very well, there will almost …always be remnants of the ink. Tattoos can also be in 'sleeves,' this means that there is a continuous tattoo across one or both arms. While tattoos have been around for thousands of years, they have become increasingly popular in the United States since the mid 80's.
Most "X" tattoos refer to the person being "straight edge." This means that the person does not use illegal drugs or alcohol.
The scripture Leviticus chapter 19, verse 28 states: "you must not put tattoo marking upon yourselves". The Israelites were forbidden to engage in this practice, which was c…ommon among some other ancient peoples. By complying with Jehovah God's law not to disfigure their bodies, the Israelites would have stood out as different from other nations. This also would have impressed upon them a proper respect for the human body as God's creation, to be used in honoring him.

In prison, inmate politics exist and South Side is one of the gangs that is represented by these politics. South Side can be represented by either South Side, the number… 13, Sur Trece, or Sureño. Generally South Side tattoos represent sort of a ¨rank¨ given to that person for his contributions and the ¨work¨ he has done for the Mexican Mafia in the United States. Some tattoos can only be used by the top ranks in the gang. If you use a South Side tattoo and it was not given to you, it can result in a ¨test¨or even death.

It's a bit played out that tattoos have to have "meaning" to them. For the most part, tattoos are skin decoration and little else unless you are getting it for tribal purposes… related to religion, but in a way all tattoos have some kind of meaning to them, but it is usually only relative to the person that is wearing it.
Things You'll Need: High Pain Tolerance A lot of spare time Ink (India Ink, Sharpies, any non-toxic ink source) Needles, one for each color you'll use. (The thinner th…e better) A CLEAN cloth Rubbing Alcohol Pads A Lighter String or Thread (optional) A buddy (optional) Pencil (optional) Boiling water (optional) Step1PLAN IT OUT. * Do some research, and make sure you don't want your tattoo done by a professional. If you mess up, you're going to be stuck with it! * Know what design you want, and try drawing it where you want it with a sharpie or something, first. Relax the area, move it around, etc. See how the tattoo looks, and make absolutely sure you want it there for good. * If the spot you want your tattoo on is in a hard to reach or out of sight area, get a friend to help you out. Step2DRAW YOUR DESIGN ON YOURSELF. * Again, make sure you absolutely want it there. * Draw it on in a different color(s) than what your tattoo will be. This is so you a sort of guide when you're actually doing it, and can help you avoid having a really ugly final product. * If you lack artistic skill, consider getting a friend who's good at drawing help you out. Step3PREPARE YOUR INK AND NEEDLES. * If you'd like, wrap some string around the needles to provide a firmer grip. * Alternatively, tie your needle to a pencil, wrapping it TIGHTLY. You don't want that thing to move around. Wrap the needle all the way up to the tip, leaving only a little bit of it exposed. MAKE SURE IT'S TIGHT. * Lay out your needles (on a clean cloth) and ink so that you don't confuse which needles go with which color. Step4STERILIZE EVERYTHING! (You will do this more than once.) Scratching is looked upon with distaste by professional tattoo artists because of the high risk of infection by those who skip this step. Be careful, and know you are doing this at your own risk. * Make sure your cloth is CLEAN. * Take your needles and lighter, and burn the tips of the needles. * You can also boil the needles in water to sterilize them. * Afterwards, rub down the tips with rubbing alcohol pads. * Now rub down the spot where you want your tattoo with the pads. * Finally, take your CLEAN rag and wipe off the alcohol. Now you're ready to begin! Step5> Dip the needle into the ink. * Try not to get more than half of the needle covered in ink, you really only want the tip covered in ink, or else things will get messy very quickly. Step6> Prick yourself with the needle. * Do this again and again, following the lines of the guide that you drew earlier. * It's recommended to break up the tattoo into sections to make applying it easier, if it's complicated or large. * Be brave! Depending on where your tattoo is, this is going to hurt! Step7> To help reduce the risk of infection, stop after about 5-10 pricks and wipe off any excess ink on the needle, and re-sterilize it according to Step 4 (see above), and continue. * This will make the work tedious, but having an infected tattoo is not fun, so make sure you're being careful. * This is not absolutely necessary, and to be completely honest I didn't ever actually do any sterilizing of anything when I gave myself a tattoo, which is VERY STUPID and NOT RECOMMENDED. (I gave myself a small heart on my palm.) Step8> When you're all done, take a CLEAN rag, lightly soak it (perhaps in the water you might have boiled for the sterilization?), and wipe away all the excess ink on your tattoo. You can also wash it gently with water. * What you see now is permanent. * If it looks too spotty or the lines aren't as full as you'd like, then go back over those particular areas again. Step9> Bandage up your tattoo with something clean, like cotton. After an hour, take off the bandage and wash it with antibacterial soap. * Do not bandage it up again. It needs to breathe now. * Keep it moisturized, now, with some kind of lotion. Do this 3-5 times a day for a few weeks, and whenever it feels dry, or tight. This is to prevent the tattoo from healing too fast and raising the ink up and out of your skin. It's essential to the survival of your tattoo to keep it moisturized! Step9 is the only step you should take serious everything else just forget it go see a pro or at least someone who has a tattoo gun that can actually tattoo man good luck in your search

When would the technique tattooing bloodlines be implemented in a tattoo and what purpose does that type of tattooing do for the tattoo?
Bloodlining is used when people dont want an outline for their tattoo (like a smoky effect). It also comes in use during white ink tattoos, because a stencil ink would mix… with the white ink and corrupt the tattoo.
