    Very nice sleeve!
  3. 6 month tattoo reaction

    I have a few lines that raise and itch during really hot and humid weather. What is ignorant about a biopsy? Sounds like you have a good dermatologist. You're lucky they didn't just dismiss your complaints and tell you to laser it off.

  6. I am getting my right arm sleeve finished off, and it is such a large area that the itching is driving me nuts. I just started trying Beauty Brew Tattoo Aftercare, and it helps with the itching a lot. It's pretty natural stuff, which I like, and it is really great to not have nonstop itching. If you haven't tried it, give it a go. (By the way, this isn't an ad—another heavily tattooed guy recommended it, and it rules. I paid for it like every one else, but I love it and wanted to tell you guys about it.)

    image from Steve's Instagram of my new baby. That man FLIES through tattoos and is the largest man I've met in my whole life. Sweet as a peach, warm, intelligent, socialite at the convention and artistic and brilliant (in my opinion)
  15. New Ed Hardy book is a must!

    I know I mentioned the incredible Devita show in a very recent post, but the Ed show at Kings Avenue a few years back was next level awesome. They had a lot of this stuff from his childhood and a million other cool pieces. A friend and I each got tattooed that day, and while he got the classic Hardy gorilla on him, I got to check out a ton of stuff. Trevor actually opened up some classic sketches, stencils, and old flash and let a few of us flip through it. I'm sure this book is more than representative of that and awesome.
  16. RIP Thom Devita

    The Tattoo Age is obviously an incredible little doc, and getting to see one of the art shows he did at Kings Avenue a few years back was truly a pleasure. This was sad news to hear.
  17. Tiger tattoos

    My tiger half sleeve. Lovin' it!
  18. Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    My tiger half sleeve was finished on Tuesday. Super happy with it and how well it's healing. Work by Kevin Stress at Enso Tattoo in Columbus, OH. Great artist and shop, would recommend to anyone. Let me know what you think! An action shot with me on the near table. <<<Photos borrowed from the artist's IG>>>
  19. Finished sleeve

    Thanks. Just mostly stuff I liked and decided to get. It's not exactly flowing like some I see, but I like it.
  20. Finished sleeve

    Cool. Very interesting work.
  21. 6 month tattoo reaction

    These bumps and raised lines came out of nowhere. The itching goes from insane to not really feeling it at all. I've been to the dermatologist, she prescribed a steriod cream cream. Antihistamines don't seem to effect it either. I know my elbow was in the dirt about four weeks ago and I'm assuming that's what got this kicked off. I could be wrong, but I doubt it's an allergy to the ink. I have the entire arm done and this is the only issue I've had. Any ideas l or just a wait and see thing. The doctor wanted to do a biopsy to it if it doesn't settle, but I'm really against it and almost sounds ignorant on her part.

  27. Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Got tattooed in Vancouver by a bunch of Edmonton homies: Sitting outside an Italian cafe on Commercial Drive and bump into Shawn "Deadly" Hedley who happened to also be in town and was hanging out next door at Unity Tattoo. So you wanna tattoo me right now? Sure let's do it bud. 30 minutes later... (goldfish is actually black & yellow). Shawn Hedley is great. Has a really cool aggressive style in the way he tattoos yet still his tattoos heal nice and smooth. Aftercare: walked all over Vancouver for 3 days straight with this thing rubbing on the inside hem of my jeans and drank a lot of beer. Head ringing, healing like a peach. Also got to see my other tatt-bros Teddy Kardos and King Len who were also in town and who have both tattooed me. Aside from hanging with my little bro in Vancouver, the main event of the my mini-trip was to reconnect with my old bud Shawn O'Connor. Shawn lives in Nelson, BC and was coming out to tattoo for a few days at Fraser Street Tattoo. Shawn's done half a dozen tatts on me but we haven't sat together in 4 years since he moved away from Edmonton. We did this crouching tiger blastover, 2 hours on the bread basket ... Fraser Street Tattoo had an awesome vibe and Shawn and I had a dope sesh. Saw my #1 tattbro Heidi who popped in to laugh at me. Got to meet Chad Woodley, have some show n tell in his shop and have some beers after. I'm already planning my next one to squinch in something from him next, he's a super nice guy and really skilled, I'd really like to experience his machine. Got some good mileage on my tattoos and my vans shoes. Vancouver, you are alright ;)
