@Hands On Thanks, I had a bad accident with my mac book pro, the screen and screen assembly broke, I had all the photos from this last go at it on here, and after dumping too much into a macbook, I ended up trusting this apple service shop and had them replace the broken pieces on the pro... and finally I got it back, and it's been too liong since I did a photo dump and proper updates, so as I go thru stuff, I will be posting up, this site needs more content... I figured it's the least I could do... Besides Lochlan and Scott are good dudes, it'd be cool to see it do well.

This. I've got a bunch of flicks I've been swiping from the interwebs, I just am currently on a really crappy internet connection so once I've got that sorted it's on.

Very nice, @bongsau. I'm guessing from your user name that you practice Wing Chun or Hung Ga?

This one has been posted here before but damnnn, this is so good. Mike Roper

Mike Roper does the SICKEST dragons I swear. He just started a leg piece on the artist who does all my tattoos and I'm totally going to have him do my torso when I get back to the states. That and Isaac Fainkujen to do a girl with a panther head on my thigh lol.

I'm planning on getting a dragon tattoo this year. I've gone through some personal struggles this year and come out better for it. So I think the symbolism of the dragon would be fitting. This will be my first tattoo so I have been reading this board for a while (I was refereed here by cfgsteak) doing some research. I am very unsure who to trust to do this in my area. I'd hate to have one of the many first tattoo misshapes that seem to be so common. I like to find someone near Toledo but I'm more than willing to travel who could do a Japanese style dragon on my upper shoulder and pec. I would want someone who could draw an original piece for me. Thanks guys!

    • Completed these three recently. Life size Kiyo-hime bodysuit painting, a dietzel girl mash up and a kitsune running through grass with a stolen namakubi.
    • Thanks all.  My design is busy because I want something unique about me (or my style).  You're right, I do need to consult an artist to see what they can add to it. I do like my design for the most part.  I was looking into medieval/celtic designs and I kind of wanted that at first.  But I couldn't figure out how to modify it to look less Celtic, more medieval.  The art I made below Is the kind of thing I typically draw, so i do want my tattoo to reflect that.
    • Maybe I shouldn't post here since I am still in the planning/saving stage for my back piece and otherwise have only one tiny hidden tattoo. So I don't know how I will react to stares. But I admit that I have been guilty of "staring" sometimes, because when I see a great tattoo, I want to really soak it up. (Maybe "stare" is too strong of a word. I keep a respectful distance, and my eyes don't bug out of my head, and I keep my mouth closed). But I think my experience as one who has "stared" will inform my future reaction to people who stare. I'm probably going to keep covered most of the time, but sometimes I'd like to be able to show my half sleeves, and I suppose some will stare. My current theory is that they can stare all they want, as long as they don't say something obnoxious or disrespectful within earshot. If they ask me a respectful question, I will gladly talk, because I have greatly appreciated it when I have politely commented on people's tattoos, and they engaged me in conversation about them. It is amazing what a polite and respectful, "Excuse me, I want to tell you that I think that is a really nice tattoo," will do. I have had people react with their faces lighting up, thanking me, and then without being asked rolling up their sleeve and showing the rest of their piece, and talking animatedly about it. I want to be that person.
