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

I got this Baphomet head from Tim Lehi last month. Why? Easily my favorite tattooist, and I think he understands what I am going for. He has tattooed me a few times and always gives me suitable tattoos for me, like he knows me, ha.

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 currently reside in Portland Oregon which is a pretty free thinking liberal microcasim in a conservative state. This year I traveled to SF, Oakland, LA, and Seattle so far and what I've noticed is the sheer previlance of hand tattoos on younger people (my people) 20-30s. Having had the opportunity to be tattooed by some of the most respected cats in the game we've talked about this phenomena. The resounding answer I hear from those tattooers is that they will avoid tattooing hands at almost all costs. When I really break it down with them their criteria is always the same, the individual should have heavy coverage, a stable job without any aspersions of making a massive shift in the work force and an understanding of the gravity of a hand tattoos whether they see it that way or not. I love hand tattoos I love the power they carry and at times I see myself with them one day. I always end the internal conversation asking myself those same questions. Do I have the coverage that would garner the respect of those in the industry I look up to, am I in a financial place where I feel stable enough in my job, is there another career that I might be limited or barred from because of my self expression? I am in no way suggesting these are rules everyone has to have thinking of getting hand tattoos.  I guess I'm hoping to start the conversation on this current influx of hand tattoos, will these young people change the norm in accepting hand tattoos or are they just as limiting as we were raised to believe even in this day and age?
    • I love those, they're both really lovely! 
    • THREE YEARS THATS NUTS!!!! For which waiting list though? He has three lists: One shot/Small stuff, Sleeves/Multi-session, Back pieces.
