Todays happy news is that I'm getting a hand size tattoo by Rico Daruma in London at the convention. It's going to be a good week end

Nice! What are you getting from him? and tebori? And Mike Rubendall too? ..

Ichibay is my favorite. If he goes to the SFO convention this year then I will also go.

@Wilhell

Great line up! Envious!

:) Still waiting for confirmation from Mike but hopefully. If it all works out I'm getting the area on and around the side of my knee with just waves, sort of a big filler piece. I haven't decided yet what I'm getting from Rico. Thinking of some boats perhaps...

I'm finishing my back tomorrow, then getting a small tattoo from Robert Ryan at the Montreal convention next weekend, and after that I have nothing planned. I've been getting tattooed on an at least monthly basis for over a year so having nothing coming up is going to be weeeeiiird.

Bitter-sweet, eh? Enjoy that last session. I was on a cloud going into my last session and I thought, "Hells, I'm so far in and so high on a cloud (not recreationally-induced) that this isn't gonna hurt as badly the last session." Well, not really. :D But it certainly helped my spirits deal with it a little better.

ENJOY! I can't wait to see it done!

Regarding upcoming tattoos, don't you have one coming up @SeeSea? I seem to recollect you saying you were getting tattooed by Horitomo before the end of summer. Have you seen a sketch of your monmon cat yet?

You have a good memory! Yes, My appointment with Horitomo is September 23 and I will join you in the club. They don't offer you to see a sketch until 2 days prior but I am coming in from out of town and they are closed the day before my appointment. So I won't see it until I actually go in for the tattoo. :-( But Molly said I couldn't really change anything anyway except for minor things like color, so I'm hoping he just knocks it out of the park the first try! We talked about it in some detail, and I think I know the picture I sent that will be the cat's face and expression, and my cat loved her shrimp sushi, so I know they will have considered something like the Sushi Cat print. I am getting excited!

So, I've been very happy with the stuff my local guy, Jereme Galloway, has done for me and I noticed he has a bunch of stuff drawn up and just hanging on the wall. I'm thinking for my next one I just might tell him to grab something from his pile that he has really been wanting to put on someone and do that. Am I crazy? All his shit is great so I don't think I could go wrong, and if it something he has been wanting to do he could be super into it.

i love doing that - more and more i have evolved to giving the artist the freedom to do what they like - picking from their flash or just giving a general idea and letting them do their thing - if you like and trust that artist - it makes the process quite fun for both parties i think

    • Yeah, I have heard that as well. Tattoo laser removal definitely isn't something you'd want to do, I'd say it's one of the absolute last things you'd wanna do, actually. From what I've heard (no direct experience), the pain of the laser just doesn't compare to tattoo pain as it's on a whole 'nother level, it takes multiple sessions for the tattoo to really fade and because of how incredibly tough it is on your skin you need an interval of at least one month in-between sessions. That, and the thousands of dollars it can add up to...  My artist told me that she has advised customers to get one or two laser sessions done before cover-ups only a very few handful of times because of all the above cons to lasering, and even with them she suggested no more than one or two sessions just to extremely dark tattoos to lighten the slightest bit so it would be easier to then cover up - to get tattoo lines to fade "wholly" not infrequently takes years and like others already said, would still be visible anyway. 😅
    • I’m assuming. Definitely not an artist myself but I know scar tissue is permanent and once it’s there, there’s never erasing it. I’ve heard laser also hurts more than having the tattoo done itself sooo I’m not sure I’d personally be keen on that 😂
    • Thanks guys I’ll try to respond to this thread once it’s done 👍 (July 10th)
