Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

One of the tattoos from the London Trip... photo and tattoo by Stefano C. at Frith Street. Great experience, amazing tattoo, and I got to go back three days later for matching tattoos with my fiancee from Jordan Teear. I'll have photos of those and a full shot of this one when I get home this weekend.

p.s.- Thanks to their staff for being patient while I mulled over which shirts I was going to bring back for the homies... as well as telling me how to find Honest Burger. It was too good.

I got this about 1½ month ago at Copenhagen Ink Festival :) It's on the upper side of my forearm.

Got tattooed by Suzi Powell from Holdfast Tattoo, Perth, Australia. I got a tattoo by her apprentice when I lived in Perth last year, so had to get one by her as well, now that she was in Denmark.

Just turned a knee tattoo into a knee and thigh tattoo over at invisible NYC with mat vancura. Fuckin brutal session. Who knew the knee and thigh would suck?

I didn't think the thighs were too bad. My worst spot ever will be the elbow. I dread getting my knees done, but at the same time I can't wait to get them done.

Looks great so far. So jealous Invisible is your home base.

It probably just felt so bad because that outline was put on so fast 1 hour 15 minuets.

Also you should move out here and get tattooed all the time at invisible! You'd never run out of good artists to get tattoos from!

Now what I was expecting, but super awesome nonetheless! What a cool idea.

I figured I'd post a couple of in progress pics of my arm/chest. Martin Lacasse at Olde City. All the linework in about 3.5 hours. Sorry for the lousy phone pics.

It's based on the Yoshitoshi print attached. The lower samurai is pretty closely referenced, but the severed head on his waist in the print is on the chest panel and he went nuts with the ghost/shadow samurai on the top half of my arm. One session of shading done so far, another in 3 weeks.

-Update-

Little better photo of the top w/ shading.

It's in the works. Not anytime soon, but the plan is in motion.

Looks awesome! It's always nice to see some stuff from a hometown hero on LST. I've been thinking about getting something from Martin for a while.

What you don't get buck naked to photograph a tattoo on your arm, where is the fun in that.

True true. I guess I'm just a square, plus I dont have any tattoos on my arms. Excuse while I go cry in the shower.

    • 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! 🙂
