Re: Angel: Cordelia's Tramp Stamp

I was watching S3 recently and I'm not sure there's an episode where you can't see it; it's constantly on display and I don't mean little slips either.

Re: Angel: Cordelia's Tramp Stamp

I've recently started re watching Angel from start to finish. Mid season two right now and I've seen the tat maybe half a dozen times. Theres no way they are even trying to cover it.

I'm not a huge fan of those tatoos but at least they're more feminine than some of the otherwise attractive women I know with full sleeves. There's one woman in particular, a good friend of mine, as sweet as can be, that has these weird, hideous circles all over her arm. I don't know if they're supposed to be alien heads or what.

"There was just a shot where you got a brief glimpse of the tattoo on Charisma's lower back. This was edited as much as we could, I believe, so that you couldn't see it. Because it was generally felt that that would not be something that Cordelia would have, would be that tattoo. So it's generally hidden, every now and then you get a glimpse of it." - Jane Espenson on the commentary for Rm w/a Vu (Time Code on R1 DVD: 35:37 - 38:00).

Weird, because I'd think it might be something Cordelia would have. Maybe not but it's not totally out of character.

As for Willow, I certainly wouldn't expect to see any tatoos on Willow during Seasons 1-4. But after that, I could see her & Tara getting really crazy in some kind of stereotypical lesbian rebellion. More likely though, it would have been Kennedy's idea.

As for the other ladies on the show:
Buffy- I don't think so. If she did, I think an episode would have outright mentioned it.
Anya- No, unless that's what she thought Xander wanted.
Dawn- I think she'd want one but I can't see Buffy or Joyce letting her get one.
Jenny Calendar- I hope so! (Anything to make her seem kinkier.)
Faith- Pretty much a requirement.
Fred- No way.
Eve- She seems like the type. After all, she went to UC-Santa Cruz.
Darla, Drusilla, Lilah- Sure. Why not?
I tend to agree except for Cordy. When i saw the magazine spread years ago I thought no way the Cordy of BTVS reminded me of the cheerleaders of Bring It On. Even if she wanted one she would not do it because if fashion changed there was no going back. The Cordy who failed in her childhood dreams and who went to work with Angel, yes they fit her.

Re: Angel: Cordelia's Tramp Stamp

I just recently re-watched Angel, and I remember seeing it by season 2 or so. Don't really remember them trying to cover it up.

Yes, and if it was Angelina Jolie or Cate Blanchett, well known stars in their own rights, I'd understand the obsession.

Ahhh, that's for People Magazine and so on, the internet is for obscure actresses like Charisma Carpenter and actually even moreso the character of Cordelia.

I think remember hearing in a commentary (first season I think) where they accidentally showed Carpenter's tattoo. So, I'm assuming that Cordelia was not supposed to have the tattoo.

here's Cordy in S3 (back from Pylea) with her tat:

Okay, I'll be honest. I don't think I ever looked high enough to notice the tat.

What?

Except this place tends to be populated with scifi and fantasy nerds who love Buffy and Angel.

I mean that as a good thing. I am one such nerd.

What tat?? I don't see no tat. All I see are lots of swords.

Re: Angel: Cordelia's Tramp Stamp

You can have the weapons cabinet (as cool as the broadsword and wrist stakes are). I'll take Angel complete with the pesky curse, all that guilt, social ineptitude, cheapness, etc... He's a history nerd's dream.

But I'll settle for the Hyperion! ...Okay. Angel's first apartment in Sunnydale. Or Angel's Batcave. Though the last two are rubble.

Though we're still trying to figure out where the bathroom and shower is in Angel's apartment near the Bronze. LOL. The only corner you can't see is in the kitchen. The other option is that it's down the hall. We know how much Angel loves his hot, steamy showers. Well, I guess he could have sneaked into Sunnydale High. He did lurk.

Speaking of tattoos... Apparently there's a scene or so where they forgot to put the huge gryphon (fake) on DB's back and you could see his back through a torn shirt. I'm not sure of the specific shots, though. Also, I definitely recall seeing a few reflections (Spike in the Summers' house in a mirror and Angel's reflection in the puddle in the iconic billowy coat in the alley shot from City Of...). But yep, Cordy and the disappearing and reappearing tribal sun tattoo.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen a Cate Blanchett performance. I have seen the entire runs of Buffy and Angel
