Third session on my back today, with my friend Iain Mullen. Rudy Fritsch does the next one at the London Convention, mid day on the 27:th. Come say hello.

Amazing! I'm getting tattooed on the 27th as well so might come say hallå to a fellow Swede.

I had one of the best tattoo experiences today and officially crossed the line into weird territory with this by Mando Rascon today. Immaculate tattoo is definitely the best shop I've been in so far and Mando is honestly the best dude I've met,

after the tattoo they shouted me lunch and he took me on a tour around Mesa and Tempe and then drove me all the way home to my hostel!!. what a dude.

Shark slam back of neck this morning. Shithouse picture, and this is not complete. We need to back fill to tie in, dark water, blood pool and a little between the top fins, but anyway, here's the start.

Who is doing that one for you? love a good shark!

I sat for Dennis at Providence Tattoo for about 4.5 hours on Saturday afternoon. It was a bit shorter of a sitting than I thought it might be, and thank god. I was still miserable the last hour, and I'm pretty sure Dennis wanted to kill me, haha. But I LOVE the result, and of course it was worth it! I have been waiting for this tattoo since January, and really for even longer than that.

There are two shops, and we were at the one on Atwells Ave, which is just a beautiful shop -- I love it. Dennis was fantastic to work with and so kind. We had a really fun chat, and he even drove me back to my AirBnB when we were done! (I was visiting Providence to get the tattoo.)

I posted a photo from my phone as well as the shot Dennis posted on Instagram. It's swelling a lot more than any of my other tattoos ever have, but I'm thinking that's because it's on my thigh. Otherwise, it seems to be healing fine. I'm so stoked on it!

Very nice! Is the blush on her cheek your skin tone or his work? It adds another dimension for me.

Thanks! Yeah, Dennis did the blush on her cheek. It's a bit bleedy in that photo so is a bit unclear I suppose, haha. She is such a babe, though, and I love her more and more every hour! (This is also the first tattoo I've gotten in a location that I've been able to look at more regularly, so I think I am just enjoying that aspect, too, haha!)

I've thought that if I ever get a back piece or anything not at least mirror viewable, I'd get a good web cam and admire it. I even prefer photos of my small breast piece to looking in the mirror, to avoid the reverse prospective. I'm sure with yours so easily seen for you that it is proving to be a distraction for you.

@keepcalm - that is really beautiful!

(It looks like he photoshopped a little of the bleedy out!)

He did get rid of the redness in the photo, yes! I can't wait til it's calmed down in real life, haha.

Haha good idea! Yeah I'm kind of sad that I can't see the two pieces on the backs of my shoulders, because I'm quite fond of that pair. I will be staring at this one until it's too cold out for anything but pants! :)

    • Hi. I have question so I just had my first tattoo done about 2 week ago it was a chest tattoo and I read online that showering can cause a patchy tattoo and I’m very careful with my tattoo but today I’m saying a little piece of my tattoo is patchy is cause by the shower( I take lukeshower not hot but not cold )?? Thank you everyone for the help!!:p 
    • Have an eagle on the back of my arm and some daggers on the side. I plan on doing an all black/grey patchwork sleeve. Wanting ideas for my upper arm as I’m not sure what to get. 
    • try https://saniderm.com/       I use the https://saniderm.com/product/personal-size-10-2-in-x-2-yd-roll/     I have been using it for several years now on many tattoos, and this shit works great !  put it on 24 hours after the tattoo and leave it on for 4 or 5 days, take it off and it's healed.  you can sleep, wear any clothing, shower, whatever with it on. the first 24 hrs after the tattoo I use cocoa butter and saran wrap,wash it with anti-microbial soap every few hours, wash it once more, dry it with clean paper towels, apply the saniderm on clean dry skin. BAM  be sure and carefully shave the area to be tattooed and for several inches around it so the saniderm sticks good.   that's my method, I have been getting tattooed for many many years and have tried EVERYTHING over the years,and IMO this is the best way.
