    @suburbanxcore i'm actually trying to incorporate "states" into my collecting - kinda got to thinking about it after getting tattooed by chad during his 50 state tour - well - 50 states might be a bit ambitious for me but I have set my goal at 10 - I have 5 so far - NJ, PA, NY, Mass, MD - i can do same day round trips for Del, RI, Conn, DC (should that count as a 'state' lol) - after that I will have to plan more - anyway - Delaware and Right Coast is def on the short list

    @marley mission Yeah, that frog you got from him rules so much. I'm the opposite of you. I got tattooed by him down in DE, but would love to travel up to MA.

    Tattoo from thigh to ribs
    I want a new tattoo. I already have 5 but they are all small. Im ready to go big. Im really struggling to figure out what i want. Im not into skulls and flowers. Im just a Maryland country girl. I was thinking about the american, maryland, and rebel flags all flowing down my side but i feel like it will be awkward. My skin DOES NOT take color. Ive tried 3 different artists and no one can seem to figure it out. Anyone have any ideas? I dont want to go to the artist with a blank slate but im drawing a blank.

    Jason's shop Artwork Rebels in Portland, OR literally exploded this morning.  A construction company working nearby hit a gas line which resulted in an explosion that leveled the building.  Luckily no one was in the shop at the time and there were only a few injuries and no deaths. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Jason and rest of the crew get back on their feet.  Any of you that have met him know he's a great guy.  Help him out if you can.

    Tattoo of the Month starting November 1st
    Hey folks, Okay, so it took a while, but I'm going to try to get this off the ground come November 1. I'm thinking themes, like several of you suggested (Examples: Japanese back piece, daggers, girl heads, fine line b&g etc). How about "fillers" for our first contest. That sound cool?  The following is my suggestion for new rules. Please speak up if you have any suggestions for changes. The tattoo picture that gets posted in this thread for "Month/Year" will be submitted for polling of Last Sparrow's Best "(INSERT THEME)" tattoo. This is all in good spirit and fun of course. The submission process opens on the first of the month and ends on the 20th of the month. After that there will be an open poll for one week, which will close on the 27th, and the tattoo with the most votes wins. Your tattoo picture must be posted in this thread (both tattooers and tattoo customers can win) in order to qualify. Include with your photo/ artist name & tattoo shop. You MUST be the one who has the tattoo or did the tattoo. It MUST be a finished tattoo It must fit the theme of the contest (obviously)
