Does anyone else have a timeline? Does anyone else give a shit? Tougher if you're not a tattooer, it seems.

    I'm coming up on the big 3-0 and not nearly as "done" as I'd like to be. Always said I wanted my back started by 30 but it's comin down to the wire and I got bills and all the bullshit I didn't have when I was 18, 21. Need to knock out some big stuff this year to keep on track! Get my priorities in order!
    While I am far from full coverage I can say I am actually moving along way faster than I had thought. My first ever tattoo session was June 1st of last year. Since then I have gotten a pretty large area of my body covered already (you actually have seen some of that transformation in person haha). In a year and a half I have already covered half a calf, one bicep, and my entire one thigh. While far from body-suit territory, in the time it took, it went way faster than I had imagined. At the rate I am booked out getting tattoo (every 2 weeks minimum) I am going to be on track to get covered before I am 30.

    I know a guy who got a body suit in one session. Tattoo courtesy of Ross Carlson Artwork Rebels, I think he had only been tattooing a couple years at most at the time.

    Re: Full body suit people?

    I don't think I'm consciously trying to get covered quickly and I'm far from fully suited but I have gotten a (I guess) a large amount of work done in a short time. I got my first tattoo about 4 years ago but didn't properly get into tattooing until 3ish years ago. Since then I got my upper arms done, my entire front torso, my back, both my feet, a large part of my lower legs and also most recently my right knee. I don't have a time limit, I guess I'm just following the advice I got from Dante when I first went to Frith St which was "get tattooed by as many people as you can, whilst you're as young as you are" I'm going to be taking a break because of work but I still plan on getting tattooed as often as I can. I can't remember which thread it was posted in or who said it but I agree with the statement: It's not a race, it's a journey and enjoy it whilst it lasts...

    I can't wrap my head around going from no tattoos to a full bodysuit in two years, and the sort of thought process involved in that, but that is fucking rad.

    Re: Full body suit people?

    As soon as I hooked up with Kore Flatmo it was over. There was no way I was going to get major work from him and not go huge. I am in the planning stages of my entire body minus my arms right now. Kore is doing my back/ass/right leg. My good friend and local tattooer is doing my left leg/torso. We are just waiting on a study from Kore to actually start planning for my left leg and torso. I figure if my current financial situation sticks...with back and forth trips to Kore 2 or 3 times a year....I will be fully covered in 5-7 years.

    You've watched the Kore Flatmo interview right?

    I would enjoy seeing a work in progress thread of this body suit for sure once it gets going!

    Re: Full body suit people?

    The body suits are amazing and visually stunning but I love getting tattooed and meeting new people and just the whole experience. I havnt had much thought on cohesiveness but i could picture within next few years I will have a shorts/t-shirt suit?(invisible suit?) when I am completely covered in that space I will move on to visible areas ie lower arms and lower legs. It would be bitter sweet though would mean getting alot of nice tattoos from people whos art I like but the beginning of the end of being tattooed.
    I feel I have better tattoos than I deserve.
    Thanks everybody

    I will be including all of the artwork from Kore and any photos; in-progress, during tattooing, or otherwise. And yes, I have watched that interview. It is one of the reasons I am so happy in my decision to work with Kore. He mirrors all of the traists that I respect in a human being and to be honest, I feel like he is an example of how someone should conduct themselves.

    I should have the preliminary study back from him in the next few weeks. Tim, my local dood, is going through how we are going to connect the back to the torso with Kore on the phone later this week. So after that, I will slowly have some updated art work to show. First sitting with Kore is in January. Tim and I are driving down to Cincci and both getting work on for two days each.

    Have you started any work with Kore yet? My appointment with him is on the 26th. I'm waiting for my study right now too. I think I'm going to break my email I've been checking it so often.
