I was wondering about how long "permanent" marker could be expected to last on a robot chassis.

Wonder if Swordsmary is a hipster who likes 80s sunglasses or if her optics are similar to Geordi LaFarge's VISOR.

"Hey Bubbs?  Do we have a laser?"  Faye is warming to the idea.

The same question crossed my mind.  Does the thing have a Cylon-style scanning blip?

To me, panel 3 proves that Swordsmary is a very average and middle-of-the-road being who desperately needs to be seen as hip and/or edgy. For some reason, I think that she will get on very well with Claire.

Meanwhile, congratulations to Sam for thinking ahead about how to make her ouvre more permanent!

Wonder if Swordsmary is a hipster who likes 80s sunglasses or if her optics are similar to Geordi LaFarge's VISOR.

Why can't it be both? A different optical sensor array chosen for aesthetic reasons?

Probably getting shoulder wings, then.  The trapped psyche's need to fly, and all that. 

I like the notion of impermanence being the cool aspect of robot tattoos, when their bodies don't change (other than deterioration or accidents).  It's the conceptual opposite of the human notion, a permanent mark on a changing body. 

You could always just lacquer over it, too, but lasers would be more fun.

One wonders how skin sensitivity works and if it varies among robots. In armor I assume Bubbles has limited sensory imput, while out of it more. And one wonders if lasers would sting...

Part of why I enjoy my tattoos, and also kind of had to get used to, is that they'll always be a snapshot of myself at the time I got them. Anecdotally, two big reasons people have told me they won't get a tattoo is they don't know if there's anything they like enough to have permanently on them. That's understandable but also makes me think of this comic.

The second reason is pain.

I doubt AIs feel pain like humans do, but getting something lasered into your skin just sounds terrifying (both in concept, and I imagine in action). Even if it didn't hurt, I'd imagine there's a large mental element, like Roko having sensitive feet. I get the appeal a lot of having something semi-permanent, able to be unique to you and is very comfortable to get. Plus it looks cool.  8-)

You know, I gotta say, I am really digging that third panel.  I love the way Faye looks back (down-panel) to ask Bubs something, and we get and off-panel answer from the bottom perspective, instead of the usual left or right.  I can honestly say I've never seen that before (not counting when the reply is coming from someone in the scene but too short to be in panel, like Pintsize), not in comics of this format anyways.  May have seen it in some mainstream comics like Marvel or DC, but I couldn't say for sure.

That was my reason for the longest time. But since two or three years ago I have at least a couple in mind that I might like to get.

Now the main reason I don't have them is not pain, but that I don't really have the disposable income to get them. I'm told a decent-sized one, like about the size of my palm, would set me back around a Ben.

Yes, Jeph said once that they don't ("they're computers").

Without some kind of damage sensors they'd be as vulnerable and miserable as people who have no pain perception. The input from the damage sensors could be emotionally neutral I suppose.

I find it interesting to read a discussion on the reasons to not get a tattoo because I don't have reasons. I just ... don't want one. I've never felt the slightest interest. I guess I can see the appeal, though. It's just not for me.

If I had to give a reason, I'd say that it's because they look kind of tatty (pun unintended) when they get old, as great as they can look when they are brand new. But that's more rationalisation than reason.

Anyway, Swordsmary's defense of sprays is kind of similar to the reasons I like my graphic designs on t-shirts. I don't really need to have a public reminder of the space I was in as a teenager.

That style of haircut has been associated with being bisexual due to it appearing on several bisexual characters. Like... at least four of them   :-P. Max from Life is Strange and Korra from The Legend of Korra are two examples I can recall. Ruth from Dumbing of Age is another example, but I think that was done as a homage to the meme.

I should have seen this coming, honestly. It's not unheard of for people to change their hairstyle after a major change in their life, and Jeph is known to be rather fond of changing his characters' hairstyles, to say the least.

Kelsey Darragh from Buzzfeed has been rocking the bisexual bob for a while now. Judging from the engagement videos I’ve seen from her and Hannah Hart, so has Ella Mielniczenko.

On the other hand, my doctor had it too last time I saw her, and as far as I know she’s gay.

I put "Other" on the poll, because Pintsize.

Do I need a reason?

Pintsize will always wriggle into the situation somehow.

Even if he doesn't fit.

Or it's inappropriate.

Especially if it's inappropriate.

I have to say that I preferred Bubbles with long hair. Actually I prefer most of the female characters with long hair with the exception of Tai and Melon, neither of whom I can imagine going long. Still, I know about Jeph having a kink for ladies' necks so this doesn't surprise me.

Artistic choices aside, I find myself wondering just what sort of parties Bubbles went to in the army. I mean, I know that military folk can be rough-tough but I would have thought that EOD as a party trick is suggestive of that bit in Aliens when Bishop does the 'knife between the fingers' trick with Hudson. Was it being the life and soul of the party or was it being a performing monkey? We'll probably never know.

Just looking in panel 3, I suddenly realise that Bubbles has changed so much from her introduction as to be nearly a completely different character.

I agree with you about Bubs and long hair.
Also, I don't think Faye ever had actually long. Maybe in the beginning, like the very early days but IIRC the redraws gave her shorter hair. so that's somewhat up for debate.

@cybersmurf,

The only time we've seen Faye with long hair was in a time-skip sequence where we see how Faye's aesthetic changed as she was working for Corpse Witch. I kind of fell in love with one of the panels where she has her long hair in pigtails. What can I say, the idea of Faye choosing a cute aesthetic was strange enough that it's stuck in my mind ever since!

Wonder if Swordsmary is a hipster who likes 80s sunglasses or if her optics are similar to Geordi LaFarge's VISOR.

My first thought was that she thought Geordi LaFarge was cool :D I also do, I thought he was the coolest crew member in TNG.

Regarding poll: I am the obe for less drama and more antics and interesting thoughts.

I love todays! (Hey, Bubs? Do we have a laser? Several!)

While the comic works great as a gag, one might question how Faye could possibly not be aware that they have several lasers.....I mean, she and Bubbles are the owners after all, so one would assume they both are well aware of the equipment they possess....

Spare part box from the skate park. I guess it was always Bubbles who took inventory.
