Looking forward to Pagoda in August! Getting a rad half chrome tiger head from Tim Lehi on my hip, a lucky mallet from Acetates on my inside thigh, and whatever pops out of Matt Kerley's line book and tickles my fancy haha. Not much room left now.

well, I'm guessing that product does not go bad for a long time, I have had Palmers cocoa butter sit around for a long time and it seems fine to me.

It's best if used before february 2019. I tried looking on HB website about opened vs closed state, but yeah I guess it'll be fine. Im just really OCD about my new tattoos, hehe

It should be fine.

Here's a place to buy sleeves to cover your tattoos from the sun: https://tat2x.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2qiikLS92wIVSluGCh2IRwRhEAAYASAAEgJ9F_D_BwE

Follow up: Emailed Scott about my stomach and he replied with "I'm totally in." He hasn't started booking yet, but we'll figure that out in the very near future.

Hopefully a few of us can meet up!

@Bearcat78 daaaaamn. Goin for it!

@Boiled Dove I had a few free weekends not long ago and wanted to drive down to Absolute while Marina was there, but she was only doing weekdays. Hopefully you can get something!

That is going to be one hell of a weekend.  One day maybe in a year or two once I have some money saved up I will go to Pagoda or Bay Area con! Kerley has been on my list for some time and I was sad to see him jump coasts before I could get to him, although my track record shows that being on the other coast doesnt really stop me.

Tomorrow I leave for what has taken about 2.5 years to pull off. Tattoo gods willing, Dobleman and Tomo next week! I am hoping to swing by Idle Hand tomorrow afternoon to support SNAFIT event. As luck would have it, there is also the Haight Street Fair happening. Silly excited. I feel like a kid at Christmas!

Hey I'll be in SF tomorrow too! Also hoping to make it to Idle Hand for Still Not Asking For It. I'm due for a beer with some friends in the Mission later but am not sure what time that will be yet. Jill Bonny's new shop in the Haight is open for walkins tomorrow too... lots happening!

How is it like tattooing the elbow? I mean it's a very 'stressed' area, the skin stretches constantly, should I avoid intricate details and keep it as simple as possible? 

I'm thinking about getting this symbol on my elbow, and here's two different versions of it, one in details and one very plain:

I have both my elbows and both knees tattooed,the tattoos there have held up just as good as any other tattoos I have on other places on my body.

Enjoy! Just got tattooed by Paul in Austin for the Open Road Tattoo Tour. Great experience.

Yeah, I've wanted to get tattooed by Matt for a few years now, but travel plans never lined up. He seems to travel a lot, but I'm not sure how often he will with the recent move. Surprised my girlfriend with an appointment with him Sunday of the convention as he is her favorite tattooer. Should be a great time. I'll be at Bay Area this year too! Super excited about that one. Just secured an appointment with Henning to fill in the back of my left thigh opposite a sick one I just got from Chris O'Donnell in May! Continuing to be a wild year of tattoos for me haha.

@thyes a tip of the hat and a serious bow to any tattooer who can pull off the detail of that 2nd image on an elbow!

Hahah yeah I had a feeling it was a bit too.. intricate. 

But I've been sitting here and doing some research, and just found something awesome, that might just be doable. I just sent my artist an email with some reference pictures, really stoked to hear what she thinks 🙂

@zetroc - send me a DM here when you are in the area. I was thinking about Jill's shop, too but it all depends on the timing.

Cheers!

Heather

Damn, I just saw this. I swung through Idle Hand later in the afternoon and got an Ace of Spades from Gary Royal. Also stopped by Jill's shop around 6, it looks great and everyone there is very nice. Next time!

    • Got a bit of a newbie question. I've got 3 rather decent size pieces on my lower leg, pretty much covering it. I know the typical response is "screw what everyone else thinks" but looking for a bit more of an answer, if possible. I don't have any issue with having these seen, wear shorts all the time and so forth. I have been on a waiting list for nearly a year now with Jay Quarles at Black 13 in Nashville, and my time is coming up this month to schedule a session in August. We discussed doing a shoulder to elbow piece. Which I do want. I just have this thing in my head about having work on my arms because 90% of the time, it will be visible, and this kinda changes things for me. Im 6'5" so with long arms, short sleeves cover about 40% of my upper arm, if that. Anyone had a similar thought process?   Partially it's my wife likening it to, my leg tattoos are just being in a serious relationship. but going to the arms is getting married to the process. idk if this is weighing on it too much for me.     dont wanna do it and not be 100% on it. debating letting my number pass, finishing my leg, then revisit the idea down the road. or just am i over thinking it, and will be good to go.
    • So far my armpit was the most painful, and this might sound crazy but my thigh would be a close second. That thing hurt like a bitch. I was pretty surprised I was in so much pain, considering I have a sleeve and the only part that really bothered me was my armpit. 
    • Hey! Welcome. It's really hard to say how many laser treatments you will need. Depend upon the ink(s) used, how deep they went, your body and the type of laser used. I'd find your artist as you are getting your laser treatments and ask them how light it needs to be.  Remember that laser treatments take time...several months or more as well as time to heal between treatments.  My advice? Start your laser treatments and get your artist lined up!

      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?
