So it looks like I have finially decided what to finish my right calf off with. Geometric pattern style stuff. I have been lurking through some Thomas Hooper stuff and similar (propbably going with Hooper). So anyone have any good stuff to post or also what do you guys think for the space I am working with.

I've been really into the geometry/3 dimensional tattoos lately. Though I'm running very low on space I'd love to be tattooed by Thomas Thomas and/or Xed Le Head.

Sometimes I wonder if the more 3D ones will become the 'tribal of the 90's', I'm still diggin' it :D

Unfortunately for those of us in the States, Thomas Hooper seems to be the only guy known to do it here.

Here's some cool ones....

I think it's interesting-all tattoos, art, and visual imagery are "geometric". I think that's why certain symbols like crosses,roses,skulls,anchors,etc stand out because their intrinsic nature is geometric.If you look at real tribal pattern art, the lines are representational, sometimes of abstract ideas like the Dreamtime in the Aborigines or social position in South Pacific, N. American native cultures, and early Celt/British tribal art. I think Hooper and Jondix's work standout to me because they are tuned into that frequency.

For sure. They say that the "golden ration" and certain levels of symmetry are pleasing to the human eye. When comparing work like Jondix and Hooper put out compared against the "normal" tribal stuff you can feel a big difference in the mood or idea behind it.

My personal preference is the more Polynesian influenced designs ,to me they seem more deeper rooted and likely to stand the test of time .Some of the new stuff ,although amazing is a little tripped out for me.Check out Chris Higgins at IN2U also and our fearless leader Scott has a cool pic of a chest piece .

    • 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??!
