I'm actually born and raised in Cincinnati! My dad is from near Pittsburgh, and I still have a lot of family there but was raised as a fan from the beginning.
My artist was a Bengals fan and grumbled throughout but did a great job!
Well, it's been almost a year so now I'm excited to have booked my next piece while on vacation in Austin a month from now! I'm in with Jon Sproul at Moon Tattoo and he's going to be filling in the last remaining spot on my leg, so (once reasonably healed) I'll be posting in both the Latest Tattoo Lowdown and the Squidpants threads.
Here’s my progress so far on my sleeve from Bobby Cupparo @ LOVEMACHINE N.Y.C.
We’re about 25 hours in so far - I think we’ve roughly got about that left before the project is finished. I had (and have) ink fallout from black inks so my blacks usually need some touching up.
The lionness was the first piece of the sleeve to be worked on, and was recently worked on this past Saturday. The mandrill is a few months finished at this point. Everything usually gets touched up a slight bit going into each session to address problem areas.
I couldn't find a thread like this, but it may exist. For those of us that are also musicians, it is always funs to geek out on gear that you have and gear that you want. Kind of like when we geek out on the tattoos we have or are wanting to get.
My set up
Guitars: Gibson Les Paul Standard, American Standard Telecaster
Effects (in chain order): Boss TU-3 --> Fulltone OCD --> Boss DD-7 --> EHX Holy Grail Reverb
Amp: Marshall JCM900 4100
Cabinet: Orange 2x12 with Warehouse Speakers Veteran 30s
Pretty simple and straight forward. I don't like too much mucking up my signal, but I need some delay and reverb for volume swells.
