It wasn't my first tattoo, but I'd wanted to get a SP one for a long time. I thought about getting the heart logo or the cross logo, but ever since I saw Machina II and then got the shirt at the last show, I've wanted those little guys.

I got a SD heart between my shoulder blades..and it only cost $25 since it was an outline.

I think that it looks gay. Isn't that supposed to symbolize Raindrops + Sunshowers? Is that really important enough to be permanently drawn onto your body? Maybe if it was smaller, but damn... it's fuckin huge. And what do you say to people who ask what it is? "Um, well, I don't really know, but it was a cute little picture on Machina 2." Heh. More general ones, like the SP heart and SP cross... those I can buy, but not something that doesn't really mean anything to anyone.

It serves two purposes.

One, it does mean something to me. It symbolizes my fascination with The Smashing Pumpkins that has somehow sustained itself for the past 8 years. Also, the picture is from the t-shirt I bought at the last show, so it brings back memories of how great it was to actually see that show.

But, it also doesn't scream "SMASHING PUMPKINS." So, if at some point during my life I somehow end up hating them, I can at least play it off.

why the hell would it mean Raindrops and Sunshowers? R+S isn't even on Machina 2. I've always understood it refered to the "enemies" part of Friends and Enemies, you know, flames and water.

I think its a pretty cool idea for a tattoo, but I wouldn't get it that big on myself. Maybe a quarter of the size or something.

I think it looks really really good. but the design and the size is only something I'd maybe, draw on myself with a pen when I'm bored in school. I respect that you did it, but I know I wouldn't

I think it looks cool as hell.

I thought the shirt was supposed to represent the 4 elements - fire, water, earth and air. Maybe I'm wrong.

Uh, but Raindrops + Sunshowers is part of the Machina mystery. And besides, even if it did stand for Friends and Enemies of modern music, why the hell would you get a tattoo of that? The Machina concept is practically all about a character's life in a band, etc, etc. So unless you totally relate, it seems stupid to have a tattoo of the concept.

you just did that to show off your stupid body and you're nothing but an ugly loser! i'm sick and tired of people thinking they're hot and posting 'my sp tattoo' topics just as an excuse to troll for compliments on their supposedly built physiques! it's especially obvious in this case, where there's all of probably 15 square inches of skin showing and you can't tell if it's even a guy or girl...! it makes me want to hit myself in the faise! tattoos are the give factory you more for occasion display! not in meek feel to show a thing of body! the more fun than you will believe it!

really, though, as tats go, that's a good one--proppps.

It's nice to see a "LOOK AT MY SP TATTOO!" post and have it NOT be a SP heart or SP cross. I thought part of the point of tattoos was to be original, and you did it very well. I highly approve.

05-14-2002, 01:09 PM
My friends think it's large too, but I'm 6' 2", so it doesn't really seem that big if you look at the whole picture.

It's cute, and yeah those guys are a lot better than one of the logos. I'm eventually gonna get four of the little icons from the MCIS booklet, because I like the pictures, but I wouldn't ever get some Pumpkins logo tatooed on me.

Why would you wanna see some pale goth chick with your favorite band's trademark carved into her pale goth ass? Sick.

But if someone did do that, they should have one of the Machina plates done. That way, everytime they take a shit, it'll be flowing out Machina... just like The Crying Tree of Mercury! HAHA

i got an sp tattoo last night
it doesn't necessarily represent SP to me, though
i just liked the picture
the keys icon from the XYU page in the mcis booklet

the funniest part is i got it on my left arm/wrist and it's pretty big

i would never get a tattoo somewhere that wouldn't be visible to everyone
i like to show stuff off
