Fooking Metal Forever!


As me said in me earlier posting, me didn't get fooking plastered on me b'day yesterday. Instead, me went & added this "little" tattoo on me right arm. This was me wifey's gift fer me (TQ Wifey! Love you loads!)

Am sure the headbangers amongst you will recognise the cyber assassin as Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie. Why did me get this design? Ok, indulge me as me does me Miami Ink moment - Me embarked on me metal voyage a good two decades ago & Maiden's Somewhere In Time opus (original artwork below) was one of the albums that got me thru me A-levels. Lo & behold, 20 years on & me is still on this metal journey (whilst many of me brethren have let their stereos die a natural death, nevermind listen to metal!!!).

Me tattoos are a reflection of who me is - Liver Bird speaks fer itself & was done days after Istanbul. Me has also got a Sanskrit 'Aum' to signify me spiritual side & have me name tattooed in Chinese characters to reflect me mixed heritage. So this Eddie tattoo is a simple 'Fooking Metal Forever' battlecry in the face of impending middle age.

The tat took a fooking painful three hours plus and many thanx to Vicky & Cheam at Xotic Tattoo studio (16-1 Jln ss15/4 Subang Jaya. Tel: 03-5637 6167 / 012-3156167).

ps: Once again, many, many thanx to all those who called / smsed / facebooked / blogged / emailed their warm b'day wishes. Cheers!

pps: Please note that Kerp, meself & a few others are still meeting up at Sri Bala's on Sat 7pm. Feel free to join us.

anfield devotee said...

nick mun: glad this meets yer approval, which was much better than the 'what's that?' response me got at the office today.

So, bila join?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

i knew it man, i beladi sensed it. beautiful artwork. this eddie tat should round up everything that matters right? rocknroll and footie, and your life is complete!

Anba said...

Balaji:-
Lookin at the pic of eddie sure brought bck good memories...
Somewhere in Time is my all time fav album...
Still whenever me plays that album the first 5 are killer songs bro...
killer tattoo...

anfield devotee said...

Kerp: Nasib baik yer not allowed to tattoo yerself, otherwise me can just imagine yer body covered with images of yer fave porn stars! hee hee!

anba: Not me fave album but definitely me fave incarnation of Eddie. Me fave albums are Piece of Mind & Number of the Beast but that's not to say me doesn't like this album.
The tattoo cost RM600. We still on fer tomorrow?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

if i could, i'd have my arms fully covered with canons!

re- me and moz will be there around 1830.

Life's Like That said...

One man's meat is another man's poison! Anyway, it's your body!

By the way, not thinking of putting anything on that well-rounded belly? Haha!

anfield devotee said...

kerp: Roger that.

LLT: A tattoo to cover me belly would quite a hefty sum, don't you think?

Anba said...

Balaji:- yup bro..we still on for 2moro see u ppl there...
must start saving now rm600 heh....
ill settle for a slayer metallica log hehehe

Achilles said...

AD: Fooking awesome artwork man. Me is surprised it came out that well. it looks cool. good choice.

Me would love to have tatoos, but shit scared of needles man... so i doubt it. For now, me will setlle for the t-shirt. hehehehehee

Just like LLT, me also curious what you going to put on yer belly? May i recommend the Tiger Beer Logo or a picture of Bak Kut Teh. hehehehehehe

Anba said...

Suggestions for Pic for the Belly

Motorhead's Iron Boar....

anfield devotee said...

anba: That's a GREAT suggestion as Motorhead were the first band me saw live when me was at uni.

achilles: oooh laugh at me belly ah you fookers . . . glad the tat meets yer approval! Join lar, don't worry bout the pain. Tough macho fella like you sure no problem la. Besides, me shared the same phobia of needles as you as well. But NOT anymore . . .

Achilles said...

AD: Hahahahaha.... sorry-lah bro... could not resist. as fer tatoo's... dunno-lah bro. My fear of needles is really bad. See-lah... maybe one day i will grow the balls fer it. hehehe

BTW, got new posting on me blog. Check it out http://fitnessmalaysiablog.blogspot.com

mozisgod said...

fuhhyoohhhhhh chief...:))) tuan kerp seems to have an instinctive radar on yu somewhat..he was the only bloke who highlighted on the possibility of yu getting inked...mwahhahhaa

again..fuhyyooohhhhhh..jealous giler sial gual - due to 2 factors:
a) the tattoo itself - it's freakking eddiee duuddde, and what's more its recognizable on 1st glance, without the need to glance at the explanatory appendage; and

b)the fact that the mrs herself had extended the gesture, awesome gesture - susah mau carik bini gitu bang :))) lights up the empty zippo in the misogynisitc (almost) world of moz; hang on let met rectify that, that's not right i don't hate women guess probably from a woman's viewpoint, the woman are more or less -mozzygynisitc? "the evil that moz does livess on and onnnnnn" mwahhahahha

nice one chief.

off topic (*$%&#$*#*#):
slogan of the day due to petrol price hike..or rather its reduction:
"naik macam ribut..,
...turun macam siput..."
....ma-cam siallll."

mozisgod said...

anba: fuhyooohhhh iron boar...dasatttttt

anfield devotee said...

achilles: Am not gonna lie & say it was panless . . . it certainly wasn't. But was bearable. And as the cliche goes, no pain, no gain.

moz: Number of the Beast fer a full back tattoo?

Life's Like That said...

Maybe we shd now have a competition to see what to put on AD's belly? What do u think people?

Achilles said...

LLT: it's On. Me votes for Tiger beer logo, since its probably the biggest contributor to the belly's prosperity. hehehehee

AD: Sorry-lah... don't get to kutuk you everyday. hehehehe

As fer tatoos... i dunno-lah. Even the buzzing sound it makes, makes me irk. So that is going to be hard to get by....especially if i have to listen to it for 3 hours while it gnaws at me flesh.

anfield devotee said...

LLT: You sponsor ah?

achilles: Same here. But me got over the fear factor.

Tinesh said...

FUUUUUCCCKKKKKK!!!!! Damn fuckin cun weyyyyyy!!! I think im getting a small one which says 18-12 in words for my bday :P

L said...

Beautiful work!
FOOKING awesome choice!
Happy belated birthday ;)

Ridzzy said...

wah Eddie rules!!
Bring your daughter .. to the slaughter!!
muahahahaha!!

akuani said...

saw the artwork this evening oh wait I mean last evening ... and awesome ... I might have reached about 50% level of inksanity ... now let me grab the remainder 50% from somewhere ... I got to get at least one before I croak man!! ... half to almost there :))))

saw the rest you mentioned as well ... way cool AD

senorita.. said...

"The tat took a fooking painful three hours plus"

fooking painful huh? thanks for the info

n that looks awesome.

re:ink on belly.. i hav no idea why but am thinking of bagel. LOL

anfield devotee said...

senorita: Me never said tattoos were painless. It was quite sakit but was bearable. Besides, me thinks the end result was well worth the fooking effort! Look forward to seeing a traditional Maori design posted on yer blog in the near future. Go fer it aunty!

akuani: Haiyo, please lar dey. You've had two kids la. And gong from what other mums with tattoos tell me, there is abso-fooking-lutely no comparison on terms of pain between the two. Childbirth makes tattoos seem like a minor irritant at best.
Also look forward to seeing a posting on yer new tat on yer blog soon as well!

ps: Pls email me the pix you took last nite.

akuani said...

AD: will send you the link ... apologies they aren't super clear pictures

So my sister with zero threshold for pain told me ... I'll post pics the moment it happens ahahah

anfield devotee said...

Carolyn Khong (via email said):

Oooh, scary but awesome! Your tattoo artists did one hell of a good job. Kudos to your better half

Let me know when you decide what goes on your belly….you should do something funny where there are 2 images in one…..when you sit down and there’s that crease in your belly, there’s a picture and then when you get up, and lose the crease, there’s another! LOL!!

Luv you lots!!

Sounds like you’ll be having a blast this Sat. Have fun!!

classyadele said...

oooh did i just miss out on ur bday?
gawdangit..sorry, unker!

HAPPY BELATED BDAY! Me have been busy slogging away at work..sigh..

dangit..i need a life.

anfield devotee said...

classyadele: Thanx!

Met up with yer hubby & a few other bloggers on Sat. Me again took the opportunity to tell everyone about how you bongkar his rahsia! he he . . .

Everyone also told him not to be such a penakut & just go get a tat la. Especially since his wifey thinks it'd look good on him!

Sega Blues said...

Clasic tat dude. I'd say 600 is a bargain for a masterpice like that. I wish my 'canvas' is as clear as yours for Eddie to pop out like that. The only part of my body with that tone is my inner thighs and i'm told its one of the most pain sensitive areas. AARRRGGGGHHHHHH! You have to come by ol skool for me to drool over it. Cheers bud.

anfield devotee said...

segar: Yer inner thighs . . . oh dear . . .
