Thanks guys!  It was a rough weekend, if I'm allowed to over share I got broken up with while I was out there, and woke up today at 6:00am to go get poked by the dentist.  So having Horitomo be so nice and get so much work done was a real pick me up!  He was super excited that I finally came back and he gets to work on both a back piece and a Monmon piece.  Shading is so incredibly easy in comparison to the lines, its almost silly how much easier it is. I hope it stays easy to get shading.

shit man ! does sound like a rough weekend !

Thanks everyone, I'm okay, just going through the usual stuff that goes with it.  The healing on the tattoo is super fast so I'm pretty happy!  I'm already peeling and itchy so it shouldnt be but a few more days until it gets to start settling in.

@Oiocha I stared at the drawing of your backpiece for a few hours. I’m a little over the moon with my piece and I think he really like it, too. He said that he had a lot of fun doing it! It’s the only ‘freestanding’ nine tailed, mon mon style fox that he’s ever done. So rad!!

And yeah, this was a bucket list trip. Everything went according to schedule and I even got a couple of serendipitous tattoos! Thank you for the kind words. ❤️

Horitomo. Two sessions, all electric (rotary and coil).  Photos do not do this justice! I will say that first four hours of outlining and shading was super hateful. Of course, I am already considering having him do my left shin. What is wrong with me? 😜

Soooooo good! Congrats on two great pieces! Bet you're stoked!

Thanks @SStu and @Bearcat78! I ended up with four new tattoo's and had some final touches put on another over the course of last week. Five sessions in five days...a new personal best for me. LOL. One guy at a shop was like "what's the rush?". I could have been a total A-hole and told him that I have a brain tumor and about to turn 55. But I didn't. 🙂

Interestingly, I didn't say anything to him about doing tebori or not, but he did know that I needed to have it finished if at all possible in the two sittings. Not only was the trip stupid expensive, I have two days booked in October to finish my leg and he was pretty clear that he didn't want anyone tattooing near his piece until his part was done. I'd love to have some tebori at eventually! @scottyg

So F***ing cool that you plan an awesome trip to California to get tattooed. I fly out to California next month to continue my Fudo/dragon sleeve with Scott Sylvia. I used to live about an hour and a half away from Black Heart but life happens and now I live in Colorado. Interestingly enough, Timothy Hoyer is in town soon and we have been messaging about getting something cool. Wish me luck!

Oh man, Timothy is the best! Nicest dude there is. He just knocked out a great white getting harpooned on my leg here in New Orleans a few months ago. You'll definitely get something cool, no doubt about that! I was on the tail end of the flu when I got tattooed by him and I thought my body was gonna call it quits haha. Had been emailing back and forth for 8-10 months though and was not missing my chance.

Dragging tattoos out just hurts more! Everyone can move at their own pace. I'm 25 and I have my back, arms, feet and armpits left anddddd that's it. Trying to get done sooner than later. More power to you!!

Got my right arm sleeve touched up last night. I had planned to go work out today at Orange Theory Fitness, but my arm is super sore, and we usually do lots of weight lifting. Not sure what I should do. Thoughts and feelings?
