Done in Petaluma, CA by Clayton @ Electric Oni Tattoo. My cousin Tori passed away, leaving her husband and 5 year old boy behind. She was the best addition to our family and she will be missed. She had the same tattoo on her forearm, but hers said "Angel's Wings Carry Me Home" From Social D. "Bella Demise" was her nickname, which suited her perfectly.

I'm getting tattooed by Robert Ryan on Monday and Deno on Tuesday.

Both are in hellish (inner thigh and armpit) spots that I expect to leave me crying like a wee baby. This whole painting myself into a corner thing was dumb. I should have started with the shit spots and ended up 36 years old and making appointments for my forearms.

I had 3 hours of work done on my half sleeve yesterday...mostly black/gray work done. Ryan Willard is doing it here in Denver. Mostly he did the back of my arm and damn, that hurt like hell. Especially around the armpit...but its looking pretty nice!

My last tattoo is a beautiful traditional horse from Charlie Roberts. I'll post a picture when I'm not so sleepy! Booked myself in with Thomas Morgan from my next- I live thousands of miles away from the Spotlight studio. I love guest spots.

My wife and I spent all day with Stuart Cripwell yesterday. Healed pics later, because mine looks extra gnarly, but man...that guy is in a class of his own. Friendly, humble and talented. We've wanted something from him for a few years now, and I'm glad we waited to figure out just what to get. We're both so stoked on our pieces!

Hows about not posting the story of your new tat until you have photos to go with it. This is going to be a great thread but lets not jam it up?

Well, homeward bound piece all finished ... About 3.5 hours in the chair yesterday at Deluxe Tattoo with Chris Smith, probably the same amount of time the first sitting was. So it's turned out to be quite a nice-sized piece, filling up the thigh nicely. Thunder and lighting backround, flowers for the border at the base. i'll try and get a pic up next week but for the moment I'm still in Chicago on vacation and logging on in an Apple store :P

Can't figure how to compress my pics of my latest work from Shige to show you guys/gals, maybe I should sleep on it.

    •  I woke up on my back a few times, i tried to avoid it but still managed to. I did 0 in way of aftercare, I kept the wrap on for a few hours after my tattoo then i took a shower and washed the gunk off and just left it. I took the following day of work so i could chill whilst it was a bit weapy but by the 3rd day i acted like i hadn't been tattooed. Healed fine.  
    • Yes indeed ... how it heals up will be the true measure of how well I've done.

      The outline had me wishing it was over already when I was only halfway through, so I was expecting the coloring to be hell ... but it was less painful.  :)  Either way, admittedly not the most pleasant place to get a tattoo! lol

      Focusing on doing good work probably helps alot ... 
    • As always, listen to your tattooer. But realistically a tattoo heals best with the less irritation and less sh*t that gets put on it. Re-wrapping at all is generally a no-no, especially no to the towel. As far as sleeping on it, the worst that happens is that you get stuck and have to take your sheet the next day into the shower with you. Maybe if you have a tendency to flip onto your back, propping some pillows around you to keep you from turning might work. Tattoos are pretty in-there from the get go so I wouldn't be too concerned.
