I'm mostly concerned that you just scheduled this at 1AM. Was this from the flyer in my neighborhood? They do specialize in flesh, you know..

Haha no I didn't schedule this at 1 am. I scheduled it earlier today and signed away the rest of 2012 to RG. Samurai and dragon is all I can say. I posted this because I was "stuck" at a bar drinking with some fellow rally fans since 5pm.

is he doing your back down to the cheek or one of your sides going down to the cheek?

I guess what I'm asking is why is it only one?

Actually foot to ass. Weird I know but I am working around other tattoos.

Yeah the cheek meets thigh it's the worst of it, sharp very sharp. If it's from foot to ass then you're also going to be going over the back of your knee? That's also not to fun.

Damn, everyone has me feeling anxious now. I am starting my backpiece at the end of July. Not looking forward to the ass.

Awesome! Who's doing it?

My backpiece goes down about halfway onto my ass but it's not as densely tattooed as the full back-and-thighs pieces I've seen.

When I was getting it done I kept thinking about how Valerie Vargas or someone had said something to the effect that it was a horrendous area ... It wasn't great, there was a lot of involuntary tensing up. But personally I found around my hips sorer. People's mileage always seems to vary with these things.

One other thing: Sometimes people say things like "it felt like someone was slicing into me with a scalpel" or something to that effect. Well.... Probably best not to turn this over in your mind when you can't see what the tattooist is doing to your back, because it really doesn't help at all. :)

My backpiece covers most of my ass. It was definitely the worst part of the outline session, and it doesn't even reach the thigh/ass meet-up point. Each of the subsequent sessions has started with Jeff asking me, "What do you want to do today?" My response is always the same: "Whatever you want, just no butt stuff." Reeeeeally not looking forward to when it comes time to finish that part of the tattoo.

      Heading to Oakland, California to see Freddy Corbin at Temple tattoo to get inked for our 25th wedding anniversary.
      Appointment is noon, Tuesday.
      Daniel Higgs did the original wedding tattoos at Realistic Studio in San Francisco and Freddy was in the shop watching and making comments while he was doing us. Daniel doesn't do tattoos any more. So our first choice is Freddy to keep spiritual continuity.
      The wife and me are getting a "25-XXV added somewhere . I am also getting a "Dragon" mixed into it...
      I'll keep you up to date.

      Hello! So this is my second intro post, but ive taken my original idea and reworked it, Just would like some feedback. Basically, the body drawings are rough sketches, of course the feathers would be done better and the little girl would look more like the one in the pic with the long quote. The quote ive shortened to "happiness is not the absence of struggle". There's a ton of meaning behind every inch of this design and I could explain it, but really im just looking for feedback on the tattoo aesthetically. Im planning on keeping it all black ink, but if you think colour would look nice somewhere, let me know! This will be my first tattoo so all the feedback is appreciated greatly. Keep in mind these are rough sketches and my artist (who I met today!! :D ) will be drawing it out more nicely. Im likely going to have to break it up into pieces and do it over the course of the year because of cost, opposed to squeezing it into a month or two. As far as pricing goes, what do you guys think? I just want to get a few more quotes before I commit to this shop. Thanks a million!
      cant get photos to upload on post.. check out my gallery :)

      hi all this is my introduction thread. im a huge enthusiast in tattoos and i love american traditional style hence the name. im going to school to major in art education but i all types of art. the reason i titled this thread trad. flash help is because i drew an american traditional design and would like some input on it. i had planned to get it on my left leg but placement is still up in the air and i dont know if i should keep all of the elements. i also want to get a homeward bound ship on the same leg in the future so i need to plan around that. constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. thanks in advance guys

      I've done a search on the net and on here but can't find what I'm looking for. Does anyone know a source to explain the symbolism behind Japanese tattoos? I'm not talking about high level Koi means this, Dragon means this; I'm talking about a really detailed explanation such as an explanation of what the symbolism behind a Samurai holding a scroll in his mouth is, or what it means for a Samurai to be shown killing a Koi fish.
      I'm thinking about ideas for my next big piece and don't just want to put some random symbols on myself, or if I do, I want to do it by choice, not by ignorance.
