I'm not heavily tattooed, but here's my short list-

Marcus Brooks (1st tattoo, friend's house, he has since passed)

Jef Whitehead

Eddy Deutsche (It's so small, it might not even count!)

Dan Higgs (also tiny)

Scott Sylvia

Freddy Corbin

Tim Lehi

Mike Wilson

Tim Hendricks

Chummy Alexanian

Hector Fong

Thomas Hooper

Like I said, I'm not heavily tattooed, but I'm happy with the names on my list so far. Although, if I were a dude with all this pink skin, I would never ever date me.

Damn. For someone not heavily tattooed that's quite a respectable list! So far:

Dave Wallin

Eli Quinters

Jake Fraser

Todd Noble

Eli Quinters

Oliver Peck

Bailey Robinson

Andy Perez

Gene Coffey

Matt Lautar (not sure if he's still tattooing)

and some dude named Paul whose shop burned down a couple months later. He was white and had dreads.

Also, funny, Mario, I talked to you a few days ago on the phone to see if you'd be around in a couple wks but you'll be in CA! Hopefully I can add you to the list, ha

Here's my small list. Hard to get tattooed when you're dead ass broke and don't wanna go to a scratcher! Hoping to scrounge some cash together to tack another name on at SFO convention this month tho...

Doug Hansen (multiple)

Hey Dean- what's the story behind you getting tattooed by an 11 year old boy??

Also does anyone care to share stories of getting tattooed by their wife/significant other? I noticed a lot of you had wives on your lists

Link to comment

I honestly can't recall but that's a great way to describe somebody. He moved there around 3 years ago if I remember correctly and looking at the shop's old staff that's gotta be him then. Time to edit the list..

I had my wife tattoo me for a few reasons...One is that when I show her my portfolio for critiquing, she is way harder on me than anybody I know, which is awesome. I figured I should let her try it so she can see how difficult it is. The tattoos she did on me turned way better than I expected, so I guess my point wasn't really proven, but whatever. The only blowout on the whole thing is on the line that I did, and the yellow she put in it is more solid than the yellow in a tattoo right next to it done by an actual tattooer...The other reason it happened was that we were getting drunk at the tattoo shop after hours, and it seemed like the thing to do.
