Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

My first tattoo, done two days ago. It's a freehand piece by Yliana Paolini. Was an awesome experience. Well worth the 7hour driving trip to Brighton :) She's freakin' amazing.

Next session is in 6 weeks. Can't wait!

Now with pictures :)

Been a couple of months since I got my first ones finished. So happy with them, Dalmiro did an awesome job.

So I guess it's tune to start planning the next one?!

Parts of it were much more painful than others, but overall not too bad at all!

Worst bit definitely over the back of the knee joint! It's just about bearable.

Yeah, I can imagine, the bit I have not been looking forward to.

Konnichiwa LST!!! Writing this from Kyoto :D We did another 5 hours on my back yesterday which finished off the black and today we start colour. Then I have another 3 hour session Thursday evening and that will be it for this trip. Should leave about 7 hours or so to finish off the main motif. I'll post picks in the back piece thread once healed.

It's been awhile since I've been on here - as Brock put it, been in "hibernation". Just want to say God damn there has been some amazing work being put out on here lately!! Excellent job everyone. In a weird kind of way it makes me really proud to see the forum and the community doing what it set out to do, and that's nothing but great tattoos. And the new blood on here are dropping some bombs!!

Alright team, I shall update again when I get the chance and as mentioned post picks once everything settles down (probably should even do the long overdue travel blog lol) speak soon guys, genki de ne!!

Cheers @Iwar it's good to be back my friend!! And since you asked so nicely, another travel blog it is haha.

Well that was just over 4 hours of "fuck me" lol. 2 days back to back is no joke at all ( @Reyeslv you are a machine) but we got a lot done. Horinao thinks we might even be able to finish on Thursday if we make the session a little longer - and hells yeah I'm keen for that! He's kept the colour really traditional and no bells or whistles but that's fine by me, the original image is perfect anyway (in my eyes at least)

@cibo y'all will have to wait until I at least get back home to be able to upload pics ;) but I won't keep you guys hanging.

here's a link to the catclaw blog from yesterday http://ameblo.jp/catclaw-tattoo-z/entry-11716915808.html

@Duffa

Looks good man! Really readable...

If you like Jazz and want some hard liquor Thursday night you should check out Bar Quasimodo ( Bar Chez Quasimodo - Jazz Up Japan ). This guy set up a bar in his garage when he retired, and made it into a shrine to whiskey, wine and jazz. It's my favourite place in Kyoto. But you've probably got your own finds at this stage!

My latest two pieces I posted in the gallery.

A bowling pin eagle by Mike Fite and a folk bird by Mario Desa.

Nabbed them both at the Richmond Convention just over a week ago.

Totally awesome getting tattooed by both of them, highly recommended!

    • Hey.  I have this on my hand and I want to blend it with the rest of the tattoo. There will be some more tattoos in the white bits above it but I need an idea on how I can merge the armband with the rest through a background or something. And also I'd like to have some sort of an ending on my forearm. I was thinking of a mandala design but not sure. Some gradient from the armband down into the mandala tattoo. If you have any suggestions please let me know.  https://imgur.com/a/AICbRo1
    • It just hurts, but it’s more deeper. It comes and goes, never consistent. Usually when I wake up or go to bed when I haven’t washed it yet or have put lotion on. Sometimes it still gets irritated. According to my artist, it has healed nicely. I’m wondering if it’s an allergic reaction or the way I would position my arm when I would sleep for the past month to avoid damage to the tattoo. Sorry, I really don’t know how to explain it properly 
    • You need to be more specific about that ache but i dont really see how it can be related to the tattoo
