I grew up in Virginia. A small town on the border of NC. I spent a lot of summers on Lake Norman, and I lived in Boone for awhile.

hey that's awesome! I haven't been in NC long but from what I hear those are some of the coolest places in the state! I'm going out near Boone for a camping trip in a couple weeks, that'll be my first time there.

@graybones helluva first tattoo. @The Hyena actually puts blog updates up here

thanks dude! That's cool he posts on here. When I was trying to find out who was doing all those awesome clown-owl tattoos I kept seeing, it was so hard to find him on the internet. shoulda looked here, haha.

nice! I haven't seen any Rodney Raines pieces (that I know of) but I run into people all the time with really nice tattoos from other artists at Ace.

hope I didn't miss anyone, still getting used to this forum. thanks for the warm welcome :)

Nice @Avery Taylor. I've spent a lot of time in Stuart, Virginia (Family. J.E.B. Stuart is somehow my great-great-great Uncle), not exactly close, but we're talking similar territory.

    • Wouldn't it be more effective to create an image that calls to mind "we are all star stuff" vs an upside down phrase?  Doesn't the atom imply that we are "star stuff"?  Lettering in tattoos does not necessarily age well...  I'm talking aging 10-20-30 years down the line not 3-5 years down.
    • I decided to go basic at the top of the wrist (im a public school teacher) - under it i superimposed the text i want - just deciding on the font and size at this point
    • @ligatortat post up that new tattoo as for the text - man i just hate the idea of small text just remember those lines thicken and you amy end up super bummed especially since you are new to tattoos and this is on your wrist anyway - do what you gotta do - but bigger is better and to me - image beats words anyday when it comes to tattoos i have some words on me but i'm just saying
