Hi!

I'm Lance, nice to finally be a part of this. I swap time between Los Angeles and San Francisco for work. San Jose for tattoo work. I've been following this site for a while now and figured I'd might as well step up. Hope to be a useful contributer and learn some history and about the art/artists in the process.

Cheers!

Lance

Hi Tammy,

Thanks for stopping by. I'm an architect and work on Hospital projects. If the government asked, I live in LA, but my project is in SF, so for the past 3 years I've been living 85-90% of my time in SF. I go to State of Grace in SJ for all my tattoo work. Feel free to take a look at my profile gallery to see the work Jill's been able to grace me with.

See you around the Forum!

Lance

beautiful tattoos! I'd love to make it down to State of Grace or their convention soon. Hi!

Hey! Yeah, I can't wait for the Convention too! They always have great Artists there and last year's show drove me to rags after all the books I was able to add to my library. This year it's all about the Bloodwork: Bodies book and there's no way I'm missing out on the Horitomo lecture.

Welcome, Lance! I also have a tattoo from Jill. Love the work she's done on you. When you get your background, you're gonna look suited!

Thanks, this piece is going to be insane. Jill was telling me, all pieces combined, it's turning out very traditional so she's taking great care about how we approach the background and possible future work. Yeah your backpiece is pretty amazing itself. Actually, were you at State of Grace the tail end of May or beginning of June maybe? For a photo shoot for a book Taki is working on? I'd just finished being shot a few minutes earlier when someone came in with his wife (or gf) and their little one. When he took off his shirt in front of Jill and Taki, I saw a good portion of his snake piece. My jaw literally dropped to the floor.

Haha, yes! That was me, my wife and daughter. Too bad I missed you--I'd have loved to see your piece in person. Keep an eye out for me at the convention that Saturday.

    • 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.  
    • Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tattoos have not reacted this way but I’m wondering if maybe because it’s in my arm? And the stinging feeling feels like sun burnish, but only on the bottom one. Does anyone have any advice for me??!
