Nice tattoo. Where in North Carolina do you live? I spent a lot of time there when I was growing up.

I grew up in Virginia. A small town on the border of NC. I spent a lot of summers on Lake Norman, and I lived in Boone for awhile.

hey that's awesome! I haven't been in NC long but from what I hear those are some of the coolest places in the state! I'm going out near Boone for a camping trip in a couple weeks, that'll be my first time there.

@graybones helluva first tattoo. @The Hyena actually puts blog updates up here

thanks dude! That's cool he posts on here. When I was trying to find out who was doing all those awesome clown-owl tattoos I kept seeing, it was so hard to find him on the internet. shoulda looked here, haha.

nice! I haven't seen any Rodney Raines pieces (that I know of) but I run into people all the time with really nice tattoos from other artists at Ace.

hope I didn't miss anyone, still getting used to this forum. thanks for the warm welcome :)

Where? I'm from Danville. (Which I consider just outside of Greensboro.)

Nice @Avery Taylor. I've spent a lot of time in Stuart, Virginia (Family. J.E.B. Stuart is somehow my great-great-great Uncle), not exactly close, but we're talking similar territory.

    • Chris O'Donnell did a #dronereveal last week - next level!   Holding out hope for #catreveal.
    • I hate that question, not so much because it's rude, but because you ALWAYS get one of two responses: 1) "Whoa, that's a lot! I'd never spend that much!" and/or "You could have bought a [insert expensive object here] for that much!" 2) "I know a guy who does them for $20, you should go to him!" Nobody ever thinks it was reasonable, they act like I have to sell my organs to get even a little traditional one shot. 
    • I absolutely hate the "how much did it cost" question.I used to answer that question to a few people,but now I ask if they are interested in getting a tattoo.If not,I don't answer the question.

      Its pretty interesting to me seeing the reaction of co workers when they see my tattoos.
      They are people that I have seen and spoken to for a lot of years. I notice their eyes looking right at my tattoos,but they don't say a thing.

      Its kind of funny when the ones who are closer to me, make a comment and feel that its ok to let
      me know how much they dislike tattoos.

      I really don't care what anyone thinks,anyways.
