Hello friends and welcome to Last Sparrow Tattoo

So here it is, my first blog entry. Check me out, I'm in the 90"s now.... I will be writing a couple of book reviews on three amazing books. The first one is the Bob Roberts book, which has a pricey back bone and is well worth it. The second will be the Tattoo Encyclopedia by Hanky Panky, a true pirate. Hanky Panky takes no shit, none whatsoever. He is the greatest tattoo historian and he lives the life, as opposed to all the degree holding turds who are just hoping someone will take them serio

Ian Clark (Wrecking Ball Promo Inc) and The Three Questions

Ian Clark is a close friend of mine that I have been fortunate enough to know for a little over nine years. Ian has travelled/toured with various punk & hardcore bands that you have more than likely seen.

He left BroPrints a few years ago and started his new company called Wrecking Ball Promo Inc. Here's is the info if y

Tattoo appointment etiquette

This is something that encounter at least once a week..... you know how when you have a dentist appointment you try to cram 6 months worth of flossing into 15 minutes before your appointment? or if you have to go to the doctor, you try to shower up before you go in for whatever is ailing you? WELL PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TAKE THE SAME LIBERTIES WHEN YOU ARE GETTING TATTOOED!!!!!!!!!! brush your teefs so it dont smell like you been munchin on shit sandwiches for lunch. if you are getting your foot

Five Days in New Orleans

For a city with (many) citizens and tourists wandering the streets with tattoos, from the lonely one to the whirlwind of many; I only saw two tattoo shops. One was on the St. Charles line headed out to the historic and beautiful Garden District while the other was on Frenchman St. The nickname of the Big Easy is beyond fitting with “easy” easily being filled in for any community to event to transportation except for tattoo shop locator. I could spot tattoos in any direction I looked but no tatto

Lochlan and the Three Questions

One of the many things I'll be doing with my blog is interviews with friends who tattoo and/or who are musicians who get tattooed with the following three questions: 1) The who, what, when, where, and why of your first tattoo? Picture? 2) The who, what, when, where, and why of your latest tattoo? Picture? 3) The last band, album, and song you listened to? So to kick it off I'll take a swing at it: 1) The who, what, when, where, and why of your first tattoo? Picture? Who= Tom

Scott and Lochlan equals Last Sparrow Tattoo

    • i think it looks good and its not so big..maybe you are finding it dark?  but it will look much better in a few months once its properly settled into the skin and it will get lighter too .... i think its a great start, and incase you decide to continue it upwards, you can use some play with contrast and create a beautiful sleeve or half sleeve .... honestly id just leave it for a while , let it grow on you, before making any rushed decisions...believe me, i made rushed decisions over and ov
    • Also, usually before I got to get my tattoos me and the artist have a pre-session to talk about everything and ask questions, then set up an apointment, but like I originally stated it doesn't look bad at all.
    • I personally think the tattoo looks fine, You can put a moon  like others have said and it would look awesome. Also before they tatted you up, did you see the design on your wrist, the way it would look. When I go to my artist, they usually ask me to pick the design myself, the size, what exact location I want it on, also the reasons for getting the tattoo, but I got good history with my tattoo artists, also if this is recently done, you might want to wait a while, let it heal etc, may even look
