These are both so awesome. I saw these posted on his instagram. Greg Christian is such an awesome tattooer. I tried talking my gf into getting something from him at the convention here in Rochester this year, but she decided not to get anything.

LOVE that kneecap, @eisen777! He did that whole thing in one shot? And was the skull already there?

Thanks guys....Friday night was great. The knee was ONE shot. Brutal! I got lost walking around MTL at 1am with a fresh knee tattoo I think I walked a mile away from my hotel before I gave up and got a cab. No fun! My wife gets one more today....that one ill post later we are expecting cool things from this LST favorite.

Ok here goes. Goofy dragon by Marie Sena (who happens to be the nicest person in the universe) done at the Montreal tattoo convention yesterday. This takes up most of the front of my thigh and only took three hours! She is a wizard. It was a fantastic experience.

Inspired by the 100-year-old piece of flash that I gushed about here.

Both you and @jade1955 received some nice work from Rose Hardy! Those are about the best I've seen.

Thanks @Reyeslv @jade1955 will be posting his girl when the redness dies down.

Must admit, I have been limping for 3 days, the bottom of the inner leg really stings when you first stand up.

So glad we were lucky enough to get a tattoo from Rose, her girls are gorgeous.

Eyelashes!!!!! Now you're talking.

Valerie Vargas at Frith Street Tattoo in London. A bit yellow because of the bruising. So pleased with it!

Beautiful, you are very lucky.

Got this on Thursday at Blackheart by Dan Gilsdorf. What a great shop and amazing experience. All the guys were great and even offered to let me hang out and explore the shop for the day, but thought it would be better to give my wife a break from our son for a bit. Spider Murphy's was great as well. I would highly recommend both shops not just on talent but just as good people.

Looks great! I need a a dragon at some point. Was looking for potential LST people but that place was crazy crowded.

All 3 days were great fun, good too see friends I have not seen in a while, bullshit about tattoos and make new friends. I already have plans to go next year!. Today my wife got a Rock of Ages from mike wilson. He may have pictures up on instagram, if not ill try to get a nice one healed. But it looks great and Mike Wilson is a great guy/tattooer. Next year I hope to get one from him, this year I just have too much going on.

@eisen777 you have stamina to have made it through three days--we were there most of the day yesterday because my appointment was early and Graeme's was late, and today I feel hungover despite only having had a couple of drinks last night. We are also already talking about next year. :)

PS - we saw a woman with a Hooper-looking chest tattoo and realized now based on the collar thread that it was probably your wife? That sounds totally creepy, but if it was indeed her tell her that it is stunning in person.

My Mom's been asking when I'd get one for her. I had wanted Ashley Love to do it, so now that summer is over, I made an appointment. Mom was stoked when I showed her. I believe her exact words were "I love it! I don't like that you get tattooed, but I love the design". :)

Looks like a leg, but that's my forearm.

And by "goofy", you mean "freakin' sweet"

I don't often say this, but I really dig this lettering. ^

Speaking of lettering, I heard a rumor that Katie Sellegren is moving to SF next month full time.

She told me this a few months back via email, will be there SFO time last I heard

    • 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! 🙂
