    Hello from Northern Ireland

    Hello everyone. Just wanted to say what a great forum this is. Thank you for having me around, I am excited to get to know so many tattoo enthusiasts, and am here to simply look at and learn as much about tattoos as I can.

    Hey Gigi! Do you have tattoos yourself? Where do you go, what you got, etc?

    Re: Hello from Northern Ireland

    Hi, and thanks for the welcome. Yes, I have a few pretty small ones, that were really based on impulse, when I had no clue about tattooing. I got them in White Dragon in Belfast. I am pregnant at the moment with the baby due in a few weeks, so if everything goes to plan, later this year or early next I will be getting many more. I have been cautious this time, i know what I want, I just need to find the right person to do it. Thats really why I joined the forum.

    I want some really realistic/hyper realistic work on both upper arms, coming across my chest., , natural images like stoats, and otters,fox's and birds, flowers and leaves etc. Anyone know anyone in the U.K. who specialises in this sort of stuff?

    Thank you, choosing a name is nearly as hard as choosing an artist!

    If anyone can think of a nice name for a little girl please share!

    Ireland is a place I've always wanted to see. Hm, well, we finally agreed on the name Stella for our daughter (now 4 1/2). Others on my list were: Sidra, Lydia, and Violet... For a boy I had wanted Anton and DJ wasn't going for it, good thing we had a girl. Welcome!

    Here is a link toi Den Yakovlev's Tumblr feed. I think he is probably the most hyper-realistic tattooist working today. Just my opinion. Anyhow, he works out of Moscow, so it would be a bit of a trip, but I know he travels to do shows and guest spots...you might try contacting him and seeing if/were he will be if you like his work. There is more of it on his FB page.

    Old enough to know better, still young enough to try.

    Hey, we're not that young to get the Brando/Streetcar reference. That movie's a classic!

    She gets that all the time so we showed her the youtube of Marlon Brando doing that scene. It's such an emotional scene but she thinks it's hilarious.
