Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

My last work was done in four sessions, the shortest one was five hours, and the longest was six and a half.

Ouch.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that armpits hurt like a mofo.

Got this from Kim Saigh yesterday. So psyched, I love her. Puts my other tattoos to shame.

Trixie, awesome, I have a few from Kim, she is great, and the nicest person on earth. Can't wait for my next appointment with her.

HA! This is exactly what happened to me last month.. got the outline done and I shot up and said, "I'm done!" We got the black in a few weeks ago, so hopefully not too much longer. But yeah dude, fuck if that wasn't the worst one so far. And I felt like a total jackass, all "havin' tattoos" and not being able to take that shit.. goddamn.

A thousand times yes. When I was getting those tigers on my ribs, I left the station soaked in sweat. That was far and away the worst I've experienced yet. Thankfully, Tim Lehi is super fast (and broke it up over 4 sessions). My longest rib session was 2.5 hours, but they were the longest 2.5 hours of my life.

I spent a few hours at Frith St on Friday as Valerie did some more work on my sleeve. It was a really good session and it was fascinating seeing the tattoo building up and some of the gaps being filled. I don't really want to put images up whilst Valerie is choosing to hold off from uploading custom work to the net - I will let her decide if she wants to post watermarked images when the sleeve is completed. However, I don't think she will mind me posting a small detail of a skull. She did this 'free-hand', no stencil or tracing or even an image - just some sharpie lines from memory and then she just tattooed it on. Unfuckingbelievable. By the way the attached image is about the same size of the actual tattoo itself - the detail is incredible.

I call him Pablo. He's my new amigo.

Be happy man :) Im happy that you are getting good work from the word go! I wish I would have had the change when I got tattooed. Well, I still don't have the change if I don't travel for about 850kilometers back and forth...

@dirbab - really nice, lately I've been digging trad style daggers....

Some re-jigging of my get-tattooed schedule for the rest of the year. I know I am going to be in Japan in November and had been dithering about who to get tattooed by (or whether to get tattooed at all) - too many amazing artists to choose from, really. I ended up opting to try and synch it with my GF's sessions in Yellow Blaze, so I rang the shop yesterday morning and ended up having a chat with Shige. Long story short, I'm going to have a consultation with Tomo and squeeze in something ;).

Stopped by Philadelphia Eddie's yesterday and added a tattoo by Jerry "Reds" Donohoe!

He did a vulture on me!

:)

I'm amazed by the frequency of your tattoo sessions Bunny. You must have superhuman endurance.
