Thanks man. It was some flash he just painted. It was spur of the moment the day or two before traveling, but I was like damnit I need that pizza. All the dudes in the shop got a luck out of it. How's walking with that swollen knee?

That's awesome! Someone should make a junk food flash set at some point.

I don't have any problems with the my knee now, except that it looks a little freaky because of the swelling. Getting it was a bitch though. It sucks that I have one more to go.

Started this with Koeplinger a couple days ago. It's incredibly swollen, so it was hard to get a decent shot of it.

I really dig this thing. I told you on Instagram already, but I am getting a Kali on the 12th from Matt Arriola. I asked him to get kinda of crazy with it so I don't know what to expect.

@living4today that tiger is something else, and the placement next to pizza face is pretty awesome. There's gotta be a good tiger attach joke we can come up with to explain the swelling/limping while it heals...

So, I'm reaching the end of my recent spree of tattooing. I've got one more appointment on Wednesday, then I'm taking some time off. Letting myself heal for a while. I had two done today by Tim Pausinger at The Pearl Harbor Gift Shop. I'm going to post the eagle. The tiger head on my elbow is totally swollen and wont make for a good pic at this point.

We definitely need to, otherwise it looks like I'm limping around from a rough night in prison

Me and tony decided that unbeknownst to most people, tigers are deathly afraid of pizza monsters and this particular tiger doesn't care for left legs either

@Mark Bee, that eagle is so good! Very classic and awesome. Ditto for @Nick C. When an eagle's done right--and those are--it's just so damn right.

@Iwar: Welcome to the heavy black knee club! That spot right under the kneecap tickles, don't it? :D That thing looks so good. And yes, it is impossible to photograph.

@lving4today: I'm tired of telling you how much I love that tiger.

Saw that on IG, wondered if anyone I "knew" had gotten it...very, very kool!

Thanks! They both turned out even better than I thought they would. Now I just have to figure out the what, when, where, and how for my next. Hopefully there won't be a 9 month period in between tattoos this time.

So I wasn't sure if I was going to post any of my new tattoos but decided in the end to just go for it. I moved to France four months ago and have been sat in a lab isolated from the world pretty much ever since. I went to the Mondial du Tatouage show in Paris for three days as a birthday present to myself. I booked in with Stewart Robson and Valerie Vargas from Frith Street and also Greg Christian. I ended up getting tattooed six times in three days. It was also my first convention and I'm going to make sure I go to a few more :D

I stole all the pictures from the respective artist's instagrams apart from one which I took with my phone.

Demon head on knee - Stewart Robson (Frith Street Tattoo)

Geisha Girl Head - Cody Miller (Blackheart Tattoo)

Flaming Torch - Greg Christian

Castle - Cody Miller (Blackheart Tattoo)

Medusa Head - Valerie Vargas (Frith Street Tattoo)

Devil Head - Nick Roddin (Blackheart Tattoo)

I can't wait for the convention next year

I saw the thumbnail for the medusa head and just knew it was Valerie's. Congrats on all your new ink!

    • Thanks @Fig1996! honestly I think I’d probably hate if everyone in met asked me about or commented on it too! Haha grass is always greener I suppose! What was your first piece? Is it posted anywhere on here?
    • I like your tattoo a lot! And what a cool and original idea to go with your childhood home! I at least haven't heard of that idea before, so I really like it. I always like me some original and creative ideas. 🙂 As for your question, I've worked as a supervisor in retail for 7 years and therefore had to deal with customers a lot. The moment I got my first forearm tattoo, I got a LOT of customers asking about it. They all told me they really liked it, and one even told me she wanted to get one exactly like mine, and I even had older customers who were super grumpy about tattoos be like "I do like yours" LOL. Then I got another forearm tattoo, though higher up on my forearm, on my right arm and I never once had any customer or even colleague ask about that one. I love that tattoo just as much as the other if not more, and, like @Dan, I'm completely fine with that too. I know this tattoo looks good and professional; and that it fits me well, and I don't really need anyone else validating that because what really matters is what I think when I see it, and I like it.  Frankly, the sheer amount of comments I got about my first tattoo kind of daunted me. Of course, I knew what I was getting into when I got it tattooed so I never resented anyone for asking about it either, but when you get comments like "but what does it REALLY mean?" "what is the deeper meaning behind it???" daily, it does get old pretty quick. 😅
    • I personally really don't think it has to be weird at all. I'd just approach an artist whose work you like and who you feel like you can trust, and then they'll tell you whether they want to take on your task or not. I really think there'd be quite some artists out there who would be willing to take that on. Long as you're not asking them to finish tattoos others worked on/started, which I don't see being an impossible task either but which probably would put them in a much more difficult position given the differences in style as opposed to their own they'd have to work with, I don't really see many issues with this.  I think in most cases the best thing is to just approach and ask! 🙂
