Just booked in with Forrest Cavacco (intsa: iamthecobra) in Plymouth MA in June :5_smiley:

I arrive the week beginning 18th June and have an apt for the 22nd. Will be getting a snake across my stomach/ribs to go in tandem with my chest eagle (a 'Battle Royale'-type scene). Will hopefully get the remainder finished during my time in Boston over the summer.

Attached is the current chest piece for reference (by Chris Stuart in Charlotte and Limerick, Ireland).

I am having an ink jones. Still planning on a large Japanese back piece to tie into my dragon. So I am going in Thursday to get a traditional Sailor Jerry dagger on my left shoulder.

Nothing concrete yet, but my tentative plans through the end of the year:

1) Doing a "get what you get" from my favorite local shop within a couple weeks or so
2) A couple pieces at Pagoda City Fest this August, not sure who yet since I'm not sure who'll be there...hoping to get one of my knees done at least
3) A piece in New Orleans while I'm down there on my honeymoon (!) this November, maybe some love-related flash or something :9_innocent:

Pagoda always has a killer list, I'm sure you'll get something great as long as you get tattooed.

Very true. It's actually going to be hard to narrow it down once people start confirming they'll be there. And I live less than an hour away so I'm reeeeally debating making the drive up every one of the three days and potentially getting tattooed every day, which would be very bad for my bank account. :8_laughing:

Welcome in advance to my home town! 

If you want something custom and can schedule 1 month or 3 in advance check out the guys at Eye Candy. 

If you want something quick and off the cuff = what style, and where are you staying?

We're going to stay outside of New Orleans since it's soooo much cheaper, and just drive into town. We're looking at a couple places in Slidell right now but haven't decided yet.

As far as the tattoo itself goes, I was kind of just thinking about getting some flash off the wall. Besides your basic hearts and other lovey stuff, the one idea I have right now is just a traditional rose in orange, since that's one of my wedding flowers. But who knows what might catch my eye. Some of the shops I was eyeing were Good Work, Tattooagogo, and Oak Street, but I'm always up for suggestions.

@Synesthesia If your target tourism destination is the French Quarter, don't forget to factor in parking when doing comparisons. It's gonna cost you $30-60/day, but you can always park in the Bywater and hoof it in. 

Downtown Tattoo is good for in/out stuff, usually - and it's right in the heart of Frenchman Street, too (an authentic local music destination).

Something to keep in mind for sure. There's plenty outside of the French Quarter that I'd like to see and do (swamp tours! vinyl hunting! live music! museums!) but yeah, I'll have to factor in parking for those busier days/nights on Bourbon Street. :9_innocent:

We stayed across the river in Algiers, took the ferry across, drawback is last run not very late. Stayed at Federal City Inn and Suites on an old Navy base. Once in NOLA you can walk or take street car (get an all-day pass cheap). Honestly, NOLA was disappointing for us, but we are old farts. Traffic in NOLA was awful. Glad we left the bike in Algiers.

Unless you're pretty young, you do the whole Bourbon St experience in about 2 hours or less. I'd recommend enjoying the FQ during the day and heading out to Frenchman and the surrounding neighborhoods to enjoy local (non-cover) music. B&Bs in Algiers Point are an excellent choice. Casa Pelican is an great choice, and reasonable. The $2 ferry and uber are your friends.

    • Hey. First of all I'm new to this forum. So, hello! 🙂 

      Ok så I'm getting a new tattoo (9.9.2018 booked) 
      And i have a specific tattoo base i know, but now i thought i want some advice/hints what would fit in  (my head is totally jammed) 

      So im getting these texts: Honor, Compassion, Truth, Wisdom, Courage, Loyalty, Respect.
      That is 100% sure, swells text fonts are locked in.
      But.. the tattoo will be dull if there is only text, and id like some ideas of what kind of image/ (s) would fit in with that.. 
      Size of tattoo is about Shoulder tattoo that reaches towards the elbow and to upper back and front. (hope you get the picture of location, my hand is swinging ike crazy here trying to show you)

      Will add a picture of the text fonts here aswell, where i got the idea from. (the text "seven virtues" might not include in tattoo, depends a lot of what filler / image(s ) i eventually will do.. 
      Hopefully i can get at least som kind of hints or maybe pictures of same stylish tattoos.. 🙂

      Thanks you in advance. 
      Oh im a Guy, and theme of the tattoo could be more symbolic, not just tribals and stuff 🙂
    • The Stewart Robson dragon penis tattoo is remarkable, intriguing and brilliant in the technical sense. There is an old thread from many years ago on LST "Areas Of Your Body You WON'T Tattoo", page 11 has Stewart's comments on that tattoo. If you search the internet you could probably find Stewart's detailed blog post and pic of it. I think that was that gentleman's first tattoo and he was prepared and had a firm vision which Robson executed with amazing skill . You could also search for Matt Gone (checkerboard man), I've talked to him in person about his tattoos. His website has some pretty graphic details about his underwear zone tattoos. You will probably have more luck getting info (or trolling) on the BMEzine backpages.  Black out "piercer arm" is one thing...but "percier arm" penis is another ! LOL just pierce your cock or do a head split if you're feeling that kinky.  
    • looking at the S02 eps on my Xfinity menu, it seems like this season doesn't include all the folks on the commercial or prior posts from Chris Grosso's IG (e.g. no DETH or Treviño). i guess the good news is, we should be getting another season?! bad news is, we gotta wait for the eps on these tattoo legends.

      Maybe this is naive or just hopeful, but I want to start an artist signature line of T-shirts,  designed by Tattoo Artists, I know this is not a new concept, but the niche will be that they are not shop T-shirts and not Sullen big productions from the larger companies (which are awesome). I would like to see simple clean designs, limited colors on Black shirts, made locally, of limited runs of 100 -300 shirts only, so that it actually matters that you have one of a limited supply (value added). Also limited run designs will mean that the art is constantly changing with fresh designs by the artists. There is a real opportunity for the Tattoo Scene to support local makers of things, like t-shirt makers and printers etc, instead of having things mass produced in China. Help your cousin Jim, you know what I mean. North America used to be a world producer, now we are consumer extraordinaires. This also gives a creative venue for tattooers who make awesome art which not so Tattoo-able sometimes, which can generate income for a rainy day fund when they are not tattooing (yes that happens). 
      Here are 5 designs which I am considering for Black T-shirts (hence the black back-drop). 
       
      What is your feedback? Why one or the other? If there is consensus, this thing can pop out in the real world and you are a part of it. How often do you get that opportunity?
