    Snake and Celtic cover up
    Just had some line work done in the sunny Highlands of Scotland to cover up a 20yr old snake and some random Celtic flashes.  It's a big raven that's going to have a good bit of leaf and flower colour surrounding her in neo trad fashion  I note that four days in, the lines in my upper shoulder neck area have blown a bit.  May heal a little better but I'm trying not to stress and think that the colouring will sort it out... The area was a bit nippy and maybe my skin, maybe the depth, who knows.  I think it can be remedied in the completion - she is a big black bird after all.  Fun and games.  Colour going in on the 19th.  Quite excited about having this large raven shoulder with me!   Stephen 3

    Hello from Milwaukee
    Hello everyone!  I've lurked here a bit & decided to sign up & post a quick hello.  I've gotten a few tattoos recently after not getting any for a few years, and I've definitely caught the bug big time.  My most recent piece is this Kappa head by Zach Black @ Riverwest Tattoo.  I'm really happy with it & thinking about seeing if he can expand on it & turn it into a half sleeve. 3

    Lyric tattoos
    Hey guys, so I've started an american traditional arm, which will hopefully have a lot of music related pieces. Wondering if anyone wants to share so g lyrics they've gotten to compliment their art?  I'm thinking about getting a zippo lighter with the words 'long as I can see the light' after the creedence song. Although I'm concerned people may mistake that for a religious deal, but ah well its not and its for me. Also planning a guitar with 'simple man' and a 'sympathy for the devil' tat.  Also can anyone tell me how to post outside the initiation forum? All of my other forum options are greyed out?       3
