Howie, the ‘publisher’ of SL Naturist, retired and moved to Spain a couple of years ago. A symbol of good luck in the area is Indalo Man.
As several of his naturist friends sport Indalo Man tattoos, Howie decided to get one done. But he didn’t want some huge ink statement, rather a little inking that would be private except in a naturist context. And thus, I’ve created one and he’s applied it to his avatar to replicate his real life! So small, it’s practically impossible to see, and it does apparently be invisible if he’s ‘natural’ down there, if you know what I mean!

I don’t think tattooing is a skill I necessarily wish to pursue much further, unless friends ask me to do one, but it was an interesting exercise in developing SL skills. Normal service returns, with us concentrating on naturist activity on and off grid, next week.
No real posts this week as I’ve busied myself with a new skill…designing tattoos for SL. Why? A friend, a recent arrival in SL, was surmising how she could apply tattoos as based on her real life tattoos, onto her avatar. Being a little bit more experienced in these things, I said I’d give it a go, despite having no experience in how to do it!
She’s quite pleased with the results, and I’ve learnt a new skill! 🙂 I’m not 100% entirely happy with the results, the upper back tattoo shows a ‘shadow’ rather than being entirely transparent, for example, but it’s nice to be able to do something for someone, and also pick up a new skill at the same time. It’s something I’ve wanted to try to do in SL for some time -create- and it’s the first step in me maybe being able to create other stuff that will have some naturist relevance. Not everything that would be RL naturist is freely available in SL, so maybe it’s time to try that out and maybe stick some of them up on the Marketplace?
Baby steps first, though.
