  • What's the "correct" way to do things
    I'm beginning the process of wrapping my lower leg. I'm somewhat new to the tattoo scene. I do know there are no "rules" but more of a practice with certain styles. I am maintaining a fully traditional style. From the majority of what I've seen of traditional work, there is space left between each separate peace and sometimes filled in with the dots and stars. My question is. I've seen some cases where all of the tattoos overlap, leaving no vacant skin between them. Is this practice frowned upon from a traditional standpoint?   Thanks in advance

    Jeff Gogue video on YouTube
    There's new video on YouTube made and about Jeff Gogue.  It's him getting his 101 hours of work on his back in Japan, but also includes his work.  He talks about have to surrender to be able to get a piece like that.  Some interesting thoughts. I love his works and really enjoyed the video. Jeff Gogue - Surrender 3
