Hi from Hong Kong!

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys, i signed up a while ago but usually tend to shy away from introduction threads on forums preferring just to lurk..

Anyway, my name is Mike, i'm from Hong Kong. Tattoo enthusiast, i currently have a half sleeve from beijing artist Yang Zhuo (yztattoo). looking to start my lower leg when money and time allows.

My good friends Rich Phipson and Ross Turpin own and operate Star Crossed Tattoo here in Hong Kong, and they're kind enough to have me always hanging around drawing and shooting the shit.

please check out their stuff at ARTISTS | Star Crossed Tattoo and come hang out and say hi if you're ever in town!

My friend Dust Wu (Horitsuki) just opened a studio, Galaxy Tattoo III, he specializes in Japanese stuff and has been giving me pointers on my drawings. super cool guy. please check out his stuff at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.123308957806683.22523.121245921346320&type=3

Electric Pick is also working out of Hong Kong, but you guys are probably already familiar with his stuff. Hong Kong doesn't really have much of a tattoo culture and is still at least 10 years behind the rest of the world, the most popular stuff still being stars, tribal and lettering, but my friends are trying their best every day to push it and put out quality work and hopefully one day it can get to a level like that in the US, UK and Aus.

Anyway, that's a little bit about me and Hong Kong, see you guys around!

Welcome! What part of HK you live in? I stayed in Kowloon back in 1999 and had a blast.

    •  I woke up on my back a few times, i tried to avoid it but still managed to. I did 0 in way of aftercare, I kept the wrap on for a few hours after my tattoo then i took a shower and washed the gunk off and just left it. I took the following day of work so i could chill whilst it was a bit weapy but by the 3rd day i acted like i hadn't been tattooed. Healed fine.  
    • Yes indeed ... how it heals up will be the true measure of how well I've done.

      The outline had me wishing it was over already when I was only halfway through, so I was expecting the coloring to be hell ... but it was less painful.  :)  Either way, admittedly not the most pleasant place to get a tattoo! lol

      Focusing on doing good work probably helps alot ... 
    • As always, listen to your tattooer. But realistically a tattoo heals best with the less irritation and less sh*t that gets put on it. Re-wrapping at all is generally a no-no, especially no to the towel. As far as sleeping on it, the worst that happens is that you get stuck and have to take your sheet the next day into the shower with you. Maybe if you have a tendency to flip onto your back, propping some pillows around you to keep you from turning might work. Tattoos are pretty in-there from the get go so I wouldn't be too concerned.
