Hello from Bangkok!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I'm here at the invitation of the one and only "Hogg" who is excellent!

I'm a tattoo collector and fan and have been hooked but not serious since my first tattoo at 15. In the last 10 yrs or so I started thinking seriously about planning and collecting and have had work done by some fine tattooers. Megan Oliver at Inner Vision, Sydney, Trevor McStay, Horiyoshi III, Sabado, Wrath from American Graffitti, Filip Leu with Sabine Gaffron (work in progress), and Jondix.

I love travelling to get tattooed and realising that sometimes the place makes the tattooer as well (and the tattoo of course).

Hope to meet some nice people here and look forward to reading your thoughts!

In Bangkok for a few months for work and then, who knows...

Welcome, my friend! I'm sure everyone will re-read your intro post a few times to make sure that they read it correctly. "Wait, he got tattooed by all those people??"

I thought you were gonna say re-reading his post to make sure they read "the one and only Hogg who is excellent" correctly....I'm kidding don't ban me! ;)

lol.....this has been the most interesting and funny welcome i have read so far!! Welcome Daggboy and im so glad that Hogg told you to join us! have you been enjoying the website so far? are you originaly from thailand or from the U.S.?

Thanks Alanna for the warm welcome!

I'm from Singapore but have lived in Australia for a long time. Now in Bangkok working for a little while. No US connection whatsoever, only through the internet! I look forward to spotting some Thai shops though the quality of work I've seen on the street so far, though plentiful, has been mediocre. Seems everyone & their dog thinks Thailand's a great place to lie on the beach and get a tattoo (usually simultaneously)?!

    • Hi all, I am new in this industry and i would like to know if there is any platform only for professionals to find guest spots, long term work etc... even for tattoo owners studios to publish job offers for artists. I would like to fins a platform like Linkedin but only for tattoos professionals. HOnestly i do not like to use instagram or facebook for professional stuff and for example tattoodo is more to find clients not offers to work in studios or offers jobs if i am a owner.   Said that i really appreciate you support on it.   Thanks in advance and apologies if i make a mistake on where to posrt my concern   Best, John
    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.
