That is TOO cool :D And the Minnie Mouse polka dot skirt, that's hot stuff!

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 09:30 PM

talk about photoshopped... I could do that one.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 09:32 PM

That's not photoshopped, you can tell by the small inperfections in the ink and her skin, totally normal and everyone has them, but you can tell it's not shopped if you actually take the time to look, and not assume. anyway, fantastic tattoo.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 09:39 PM

I wonder if a tattoo like this might detract from my ugly ankles. HMMMMMM.

I'm wondering what's the bottle on the floor? Chivas?

miss girl... I will try! just gotta find a photo of a 'blank' leg.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 09:45 PM

My giraffe would be furry :)

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 09:49 PM

This would be great camouflage for varicose veins. :-DDD

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 09:50 PM


 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:03 PM

I think it would have been much kyooter if she got the giraffe tattoo to begin with and not just the dot-outline.
When she walks down the street, it just looks like a bunch of dots.
WOW /sarcasm

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:18 PM

If I had this tattoo, I would totally spend all day drawing on myself... well, more so than I do already.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:21 PM

Oh, and since NYERHE ONE ELSE seems to want to do the tewtally obv. line:

"Nice stems."

A-thank you.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:24 PM

I was guessing a constellation. The giraffe is way cool. Maybe I can do this with henna? I'm too cowardly for a tattoo.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:26 PM

Photoshop alert!

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:27 PM

Dang, I was hoping for a
Dalmatian--Cool tattoo,
outfit cute, looking like
"Dancing with the Stars."

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:28 PM

It's definitely not photoshopped. Looks like more pictures of the same person (and tattoo) were posted here:

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:32 PM

This reminds me, I heard somewhere that Will Shortz (master puzzlemaker) has one of the most difficult crossword puzzles tattooed on his back. I'd love to have a chance to solve that one!

Luv the shoes!

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 10:54 PM

I think I'm in love with this woman... def in love with her tattoo...


 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 11:18 PM

Forgot the nine :<

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 11:37 PM

That is so fantastically great. I am actually really glad it is just the dots, not the whole outline -- there's something amazing about having to figure out what it is by actually drawing it like that :) Really really cool.

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 11:41 PM

@seanna - the 9 is also the 6, so it comes around the finish one of the giraffe's spots...it's 6/9

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 11:53 PM

As for the tat, I dig it, the concept and what it ends up drawing!(and the skirt is sweet too!)

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 11:54 PM

I wonder how close you have to be to get an invite to connect the dots. Do you suppose she walks around with washable ink pens?

 |  Oct 13, 2008 at 11:54 PM

...and there's a whole _other_ group of peeps who looks at her and thinks "nice legs. Too bad she chose to disfigure them with something that looks like an infestation of tiny bugs."

A tattoo on an otherwise attractive body goes beyond "to gild refined gold, to paint the lily", as Shakespeare put it. It's more like painting day-glo flames on a vintage Bugatti. It's anything *but* an enhancement.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 12:26 AM

Coolest. Tat. EVAR!

I've always been straight, but I'd marry a girl with a giraffe connect-the-dots tattoo and a red polkadot dress in a second! No questions asked! <3

...and as expected, someone is nuffing about tattoos. Sigh. The sooner people realize that their personal notions of what's attractive have absolutely no bearing on others' decisions regarding THEIR OWN bodies, the better.

What some people fail to realize is that most tattoos (cosmetic tattoos excepted) aren't meant to be simply aesthetic or "enhance" the wearer's physicality - they're a form of self-expression, and can be very revealing of a person's individual experiences, values, and personality.

To me, this tattoo signifies that the wearer is creative and has a quirky sense of humor - and I don't know about you, but I found those two traits to be super attractive. Plus, she's confident about her appearance and doesn't shy away from showing her ink.

Rock on, tattooed chick. Rock on.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 01:25 AM

I love it!

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 01:59 AM

this belongs in the Cute or Sad category or maybe Unusual Animals.
Pleeease tell this is photoshopped. no-one could get THAT drunk.....

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 02:01 AM

That. Is. Fabulous! Holy kashmoly, I love that tattoo!

Why would anyone assume this is photoshopped when there are much more outrageous (and much less cute) tattoos out there in the world?

That said, Trisha, sounds like you've accepted the challenge. If a picture of a blank leg is all you need to get started, here ya go: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e2/Male_and_female_legs.jpg

Have at it!

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 02:01 AM

Oh, good lo', I'm not sure what to think... other that "THAT'S ASTONISHING!"

Giraffe Connect The Dots TATTOO!!!!!


what an awesome tattoo!

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 02:47 AM

I saw this on another site I visit, and all I can say OMFG!!! I'd TOTALLY get a connect-the-dots tat. Wicked cool.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 03:03 AM

Too cute and a good idea

Kelly Baca
 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 03:05 AM

I luf eeeeeeeet!

And the legs too.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 03:27 AM

When I saw this pic I knew it had to be Colleen! So awesome!

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 04:33 AM

Oh grow up, Lil.
She likes the tattoo, that's all that matters. If you don't, then don't get it. Period.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 05:13 AM

Love the tattoo and love the skirt, but I have to confess before she drew the line I thought it looked a bit like a skin problem. But the idea is totally awesome and the giraffe in red (matching the skirt, except she's wearing pants in that photo) is great!! Where did she get the idea?

On another note - Will Shortz has a tattoo? Somehow that doesn't fit with my imagine of him, but people sure do surprise sometimes!

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 05:44 AM

That is freakin awesome!!!! Never even thought about getting a connect the dots tattoo, but seeing one, WOW.... I'll definitely think about it now lol.. definitely wouldn't hurt as much :P heh

Anywho... that is just super cool and very creative.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 05:47 AM

Love it, LOVE it, love IT!!! Almost cool enough to get me to get a tatt. I love the skirt and the jeans also. GO GIRL!!

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 05:48 AM

Charlotte - I couldn't have said it better myself.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 06:00 AM

D'oh, you can't use a permanent-ink pen like a sharpie! Use a pencil in case you make mistakes.

 |  Oct 14, 2008 at 06:13 AM

i love it!! wow: i recall when my laigs looked like that, long long ago....really pretty and wonderful tat!!
