The dreaded wait to be tattooed

Recommended Posts

any suggestions for a quick tattoo (NYC/NJ)

You should go to Thicker Than Water in the East Village. Lots of good artists to choose from.

My last piece is just about healed, only a few funky spots left...guess that means I have to start figuring on when to go back down to start sleeving my left arm. Decisions decisions!

Gordon Combs is doing it, I really dig his style. He was a really nice guy as well. I originally went in to speak with Jeff Croci but he thought Gordon would be a better person for the job. They all seemed excited about the image I chose which is cool as well. Gordon offered some ideas to make it even better too.

Here is what I gave them:

18 days until O'Donnell starts my leg. The anticipation is starting to get to me. I still need to work out how I am going to travel to and from NYC. Either I will bus it or drive.

I would just drive dude. You're not gonna wanna get on the train then pile into a bus afterwards. Parking's usually not bad over here.

I, personally, get super antsy and impatient when it comes to waiting to get large, multi-sitting pieces done, but I feel as though that's part of earning big work.

That struggle and frustration makes it all the more satisfying in the end and, for me, provides a great lesson in humility.

Had the first session on a half sleeve started at the beginning of May...the artist in question won't book more than 6 months in advance and fills that diary in minutes - I missed out on getting into his books this time, but have been assured that next time round he will be opening the books to customers with work in progress only, so will be guaranteed to get in next time. Some time between January and July 2013 I will have my next session! Yeeeeah!

Just got off the phone with my grandmother... i asked her if she wouldnt mind me getting a tattoo for her and she really loved the idea (also very flattered despite the fact she doesnt like tattoos all that much). I asked her what she would want me to have that she liked and she said butterfly, or heart, with her name. So now I have the idea for my next tattoo, I have to wait it out until I get the funds. The wait begins... as does my search for the perfect design. :)

i tried lloking up that amund dietzel flash and nothing really came up.

as for spider murphy's, i would totally just go there and pick one off of their flash without looking anything up but everyone in my family thinks im crazy for wanting to catch the train there then the bart. if i knew how to drive it would just be an hour drive!
