Done in Petaluma, CA by Clayton @ Electric Oni Tattoo. My cousin Tori passed away, leaving her husband and 5 year old boy behind. She was the best addition to our family and she will be missed. She had the same tattoo on her forearm, but hers said "Angel's Wings Carry Me Home" From Social D. "Bella Demise" was her nickname, which suited her perfectly.

I got a tattoo from this kid named Bahn (sp?) at St. Martin's Tattoo on Khao Sahn Road in BKK. Magical, magical place.. It's a skeleton key and the perfect souvenir to remember the trip by.

I'm getting tattooed by Robert Ryan on Monday and Deno on Tuesday.

Both are in hellish (inner thigh and armpit) spots that I expect to leave me crying like a wee baby. This whole painting myself into a corner thing was dumb. I should have started with the shit spots and ended up 36 years old and making appointments for my forearms.

I had 3 hours of work done on my half sleeve yesterday...mostly black/gray work done. Ryan Willard is doing it here in Denver. Mostly he did the back of my arm and damn, that hurt like hell. Especially around the armpit...but its looking pretty nice!

My last tattoo is a beautiful traditional horse from Charlie Roberts. I'll post a picture when I'm not so sleepy! Booked myself in with Thomas Morgan from my next- I live thousands of miles away from the Spotlight studio. I love guest spots.

My wife and I spent all day with Stuart Cripwell yesterday. Healed pics later, because mine looks extra gnarly, but man...that guy is in a class of his own. Friendly, humble and talented. We've wanted something from him for a few years now, and I'm glad we waited to figure out just what to get. We're both so stoked on our pieces!

Hows about not posting the story of your new tat until you have photos to go with it. This is going to be a great thread but lets not jam it up?

Well, homeward bound piece all finished ... About 3.5 hours in the chair yesterday at Deluxe Tattoo with Chris Smith, probably the same amount of time the first sitting was. So it's turned out to be quite a nice-sized piece, filling up the thigh nicely. Thunder and lighting backround, flowers for the border at the base. i'll try and get a pic up next week but for the moment I'm still in Chicago on vacation and logging on in an Apple store :P

I got this Baphomet head from Tim Lehi last month. Why? Easily my favorite tattooist, and I think he understands what I am going for. He has tattooed me a few times and always gives me suitable tattoos for me, like he knows me, ha.

Can't figure how to compress my pics of my latest work from Shige to show you guys/gals, maybe I should sleep on it.

    • Thanks for explanation, the shop is not dirty its the best one in my city, and really expensive. I paid almost $100 for this really small tattoo. But your explanation does make a lot of sense, I just thought its what everyone does. I cant wait for it to flake off :P Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • The artist will likely stencil it on as mentioned. Tip for you though, check to make sure it's reading properly before they start. They likely won't know Amharic so they won't recognize something missing or backwards or any number of things. They're not translators so don't expect them to catch inconsistencies. That will be your job before they start. Enjoy getting your first tattoo!
    • Unless your tattoo is infected, then there is absolutely no point in using antibiotics. If the shop is so dirty that you have to use antibiotics as a preventive measure to get a clean heal then you might want to re-evaluate where you get tattooed. Antibiotics isn't something you should be taking just for the fun of it. Feel free to do some googling on your own in case you are unaware of this. From the 2 week photo, it looks like there is a thin scab on the entire thing, that needs to flake off. Skin and scabs doesn't flake if it's moist, so that's why I'd recommend that you simply leave your tattoo alone and dry.
