Tattoo Crazy in Second Life

I've always loved tattoos. I have two in RL, and I'm wanting to get another one as soon as I figure out what I want and where I want it. I think they are an amazing art form. The only problem with them is that if you get one and don't like it, you're kinda stuck or in for some expensive cosmetic procedures to remove it.

Enter the magic of Second Life! You can tattoo your entire body if you want to and go hang out at a club, showing off your body art to friends and strangers. Then zip off to a business meeting (I've heard people do real business in Second Life anyway), and remove your tattoo in seconds. Get a tattoo you don't like? Not a problem, just take it off as easy as you can take off your shoes.

I really like the tattoo I made yesterday, so I decided to try making another one. This one was more complicated, because I started with the photograph on the left. I had to play around with the image in Gimp quite a bit to turn this into a tattoo, but after a lot of trial and error (thank God for CTRL-Z!), I finally got something that I thought would work. I didn't write down all the steps I went through, and I sure don't remember them, so I thought I'd just show you the final result.
