    State of the last sparrow tattoo Forum union! I think there are some great people on here who selflessly plug great info into this forum, constantly. Some have been around for years, through various fazes and transitions, some are new. I takes something from you to give to everyone else, so thank you. I am honored to now participate, while and when I have time and hope to be an asset to the group.  My 4 part question to all Forum users, veterans, and   (1) What is your perception of what last sparrow tattoo Forum is today? 
    (2) why do you participate?
    (3) what have you gained from it?
    (4) what do you think will make it better?

    Another Mixing Styles Question
    The picture attached is my half sleeve snow lion. I really, really want something and I'm ready for something new. I'm saving my right arm for a sleeve that will probably be many hours and $$ so i want to start doing things under this snow lion. I really like American traditional roses but I feel like the contrast of color and style would look strange right beneath this. Would it be better to do the rose somewhere else and keep with the japanese style smaller pieces below this? Or do I do the trad rose beneath this but no color? Pretty new to this...

    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.

    Help out Jason Kundell and Artwork Rebels
    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.
