Last week I had two days with Mr. Rubendall (1/2 day Friday and all day Saturday). We spent the time doing lining and a little shading over my entire right leg. He added a crane to the back of my thigh and a peony on my knee. The cool part is that he was able to tie in all my other pieces with clouds, water, rocks, etc., so my leg looks 100% cohesive! Apparently, he loves doing tie-in's. And he killed it. Three more sessions to finish over the next several months. I am over the MOON with his work.
One of the most regularly requested tattoos I have been noticing are facial tattoos. I keep getting requests by guys and girls/ Guys wanting small designs across the eyebrow...words, or something small where a tear drop would go......city initials, spiders etc....gangster shit......girls wanting the stars etc........
For some reason, I get this feeling that I am doing something taboo..........like when that little voice is telling me not too and I get that feeling in my gut.
Anybody else experience this?
Any of you get regular requests for this shit?

....The Hell Is This Mess?
Why is rapper Gucci Mane (more like Marshalls Rattail) still trying to convince us that he's crazier than a former Club MTV dancer? That is the only explanation for why Gucci Mane got three scoops of blue (?) ice cream tattooed on his face cheek. If this isn't a yodel for a straitjacket, then I don't know what is. Getting an ice cream cone tattoo on your face is only okay if you've served time at the Kingdom of Caring Penitentiary. That's their equivalent of a teardrop tattoo.
When your face is starting to look like a water damaged Lisa Frank folder that's collecting dust in the corner of a junior high school homeroom, it's time to file for divorce from the tattoo needle for good. Gucci Mane may not regret this decision tomorrow morning, but he'll definitely regret it ONE morning. Even the tattoo artist is trying to gulp down the regret he feels from being an active participant in this fuckery.
So I got a friend who works for Club Nokia here in LA to get me into the next Wu-Tang show. Has anybody seen them within the last couple years? I caught Ghostface on Halloween of '07, and the show was awesome. He opened for Erik B and Rakim, which was also a treat. I was wondering how the Wu was without ODB.
