Hey, just stumbled onto this forum and joined up. I live in southern California, build hot rods and customs for a living, and love traditional American tattooing. The rest of the stuff about me probably isn't interesting.

Got quite a few things join on at the shop right now. Building the next Street Rodder road tour car a '40 Ford, a '36 Packard Roaster that will compete for the AMBR award, about to chop a couple '51 Mercurys, a clone of an old race/show car called the Grasshopper, and a few other random projects. At the house for myself, I have a '54 Chevy, '31 Model A, and a '66 BSA I'm putting together.

Well, I was getting Tattooed by a friend of mine named Alex, but he went to tattoo in Vegas. I'm about to get a sleeve done by another friend who is a well known artist, but has asked me not to say who because he has a specific style he wants to be known for. He is basically doing traditional work just for me. I'm also just beginning talk for some trade work with Jim Sylvia, he has a '54 Chevy he wants to chop, so we may work out a deal.

Our space isn't too big, but we pack them in there pretty good. Here is a pretty recent photo of the shop. It's not the whole shop, but it's the only current one I have. I took this photo from inside a car that was up on the lift.

You and me both man. Even though I love what I do it can be torture to put so much work into a cool car, and then just watch someone else drive away in it. Oh well, guess I just need to get off my ass and finish my stuff.

    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
    • I'll be there.  Hopefully all 3 days, but we'll see what happens.
