Bout damn time, too! Looking for it, my man!!!

@Lochlan, wondering, would it even things out if all the actual votes were cast the last week of the month? Don't know how this software works, but in other sites I've admin'ed, there is a poll option, and voting can be opened and closed at will. Just wondering if having ALL the work submitted get the same length of time to collect votes would work. No biggie, just musing.

I should have a couple good ones for September, the competition is always fierce, but hoping Cripwell and Gilsdorf can get me in the running again.

Who are you going to, @hogg ?

I'm going back to Stuart Cripwell for my other knee. @David Flores, you headed down to the Bay? I can't wait to see what you get from Dan. His stuff is so good! Everything is just perfect.

@hogg . Right. Forgot about that one. Short term memory, ya know.

Depending on when I take my trip to the East Coast, I may have something to contribute this month.

My new Eagle tattoo in honor of my daughter and son, done at the Seattle Tattoo Convention by Matt Howse, Spider Murphy's Tattoo. Done in a single session of 7 hours.

I saw that on his Instagram yesterday. It's fucking awesome, and you are a BEAST for sitting 7 hours on your goddamn chest.

Yeah it wasn't easy but well worth it. Matt was great guy and super talented tattooer.

    • I shed plenty as my hair is long - but it's also black and so my shedding can be easily distinguished from that of Rufous!
    • I'm wondering what people think of lettering that is done with negative space? I'm thinking of taking a six word phrase out of a larger quote that I like.  Negative space lettering needs quite a large area but I'm thinking of having it go around my left arm (like an upper arm cuff) but angled to move down so that the lettering then spans across my left side, stomach, over my right hip and then around the back of my right thigh and then ending in the front of my right thigh. 

      One idea is a large black band with the letters being negative space in it. However, bold block letters would not suit it so the would need to be a lighter script formed by the borders. 

      My other idea is - rather than negative spacing - to have the centre of the letters in white ink and to have it shaded darker and darker to the outside borders of the letters. I'm wondering if this could give the effect of the lettering giving off light. 

      Obviously I need to discuss with artist etc, but does this have any plausibility?
    • Someone on my Instagram/FB page commented that it looks like I'm shedding.  I guess it does look like I'm just trying to blame Sunny.
