  1. Craigs Ear

    Fun little ear piece I did on one of my co-workers.
  2. I really dig Jasmine Austin's work. I have a couple of her sketch books, and reference them all the time.
  3. I think it is an interesting question, but not even something that I have ever thought about. To be honest, one of the key personality traits of every tattooer I have been around is not really giving a damn about what people think of you. I don't care what people want to categorize me as. I do my own thing, if you dig it, cool, if not, kick rocks. Just my .02
  4. For me it depends on what I am doing the drawing for. If I am doing a tattoo design I use 2 different mechanical pencils. One is a .9 mm that I have loaded with red soft lead, and the second is a normal .9 mechanical pencil. I use the red to do my sketch then the normal to do my final line drawing. When I copy it the red doesn't print. However if I am doing an fully rendered graphite drawing I use normal pencils. For me it is easier to get smooth gradients with the bigger leads and it is also a little easier to tailor the point of the lead to get it to do what I need it to do.
  5. Free Bird

    Fun little walk in.
  6. Thanks a lot guys. I have been looking at an Omega J8006 juicer, It seems to have pretty good reviews. I will probably start a thread when I start the fast and maybe post progress pics and such.
  7. lol Im a pretty good sized boy, the LCR is awesome but I prefer the Glock unless I am getting dressed up and want to keep it really hidden.
  8. I've got a Glock 17 for my concealed carry, and I also have a Ruger LCR 38. I really dig both of em. I also have a Remington 3030 that was my grandfathers.
  9. I am thinking about doing a juice fast to kind of clean out my system and maybe loose a couple of pounds. I was wondering if anyone on here had any experiences with juicers or maybe had any good recipes. I do have a couple of friends that do the whole juicing thing, but since I have never done it before, I could use all the help I can get. Thanks a lot.
  10. The first tattoos I did were on myself, so I wasn't really that nervous. I worked on myself for around 30 hours before tattooing anyone else. When I did start tattooing on customers, I was happy because I could actually move around to a comfortable position to work instead of all twisted up. So to sum it up, no I wasn't really that nervous.
  11. Here's one I just did on my wife.
  12. We've got a couple of playboys laying around the front lobby, nothing really harder than that. However I have seen some pretty raunchy stuff in lobbies though. The way I see it is that kids shouldn't be there in the first place, and adults should know exactly what it is that they are picking up, unless they are blind and then it doesn't matter anyways. lol
  13. George Clooney has the much replicated tribal flame sleeve in From Dusk Til' Dawn and how can we forget the Boondock Saints.
  14. I've done lots of full color tattoos on darker skin, it does have a lot to do with not only how dark you are, but also weather you have a warm or cool complexion. The last part kind of has to do with what colors would be smart to use on you. But like everyone has already said check with your favorite tattoo artist and go from there.
  15. I like Sullen. I think it is cool that I can get artwork from some of my favorite tattoo artists on a t-shirt, and that money goes into finding other tattoo artist that deserve recognition. They do a lot of promotion for the artists that are on their "team". I dig it.
