Huero- welcome to the site and contributing some great content to other threads and diving in with starting this thread.

I tend just to listen to whatever is on and not weigh-in with my preferences though if I did it would be punk or hardcore more times than not. Often times at many of the shops I've been to the various tattooers rotate choices every album or thirty minutess or what-have-yous-system so it tends to be all over the place with genres and always entertaining, both pleasant and less pleasant but tolerable. For anyone that's done some time at Blackheart knows what I mean. Below I've placed some links to other LST threads with similar topics in case anyone wants to weigh in over there as well!

Here's a Similar thread

Here is one on Punk Rock & Tattoos

This is on Band &/or Song Tattoos

Thanks again for diving right into the site with positivity!

Until next time.......

The shop that has done my two pieces plays satellite radio. The first time it was 70's classic rock, the second was alternative. Both worked well for me. I did go to one shop while I was deciding on a shop that was pumping hip hop at high volume, and I have to admit that turned me off on the shop. Of course, none of the artists' portfolios at that shop moved me, or I would have overcome the tunage....

I think the best is always fast, when I have chosen it has been Judge (and it played like 5 times, best time tattooed ever), Integrity, Descendents, Misfits...

The worst music I have ever been tattooed while playing is Tortoise. Hands down, so slow and repetative ugh.

I like getting tattooed by Rob Hostetter, cause it is a good mix of Punk, Hardcore, and Soul. Goes from Bob Marley rarities and the like into Chain Of Strength. One time we listened to AC/DC's greatest hits like 3 times in a row, that was a fun session.

Most places it is hardcore, punk, metal, etc... I don't really care as long as tattoo artist is happy. I tend to zone out while getting tattooed so its not a big concern. The guy I go to most often has a mix of Beatles, Sabbath, Stereolab, Black Flag, Dr. Dog, King Giant, Queens of the Stone Age. As long as I don't have to listen to Justin Beiber or some bullshit like that, Im good.

I am now listening to Judge. Have not done that in a while.

I prefer stuff like Mogwai, Sunny Day Real Estate, Pavement and shit like that. Also old Alkaline Trio is always good

    • I currently reside in Portland Oregon which is a pretty free thinking liberal microcasim in a conservative state. This year I traveled to SF, Oakland, LA, and Seattle so far and what I've noticed is the sheer previlance of hand tattoos on younger people (my people) 20-30s. Having had the opportunity to be tattooed by some of the most respected cats in the game we've talked about this phenomena. The resounding answer I hear from those tattooers is that they will avoid tattooing hands at almost all costs. When I really break it down with them their criteria is always the same, the individual should have heavy coverage, a stable job without any aspersions of making a massive shift in the work force and an understanding of the gravity of a hand tattoos whether they see it that way or not. I love hand tattoos I love the power they carry and at times I see myself with them one day. I always end the internal conversation asking myself those same questions. Do I have the coverage that would garner the respect of those in the industry I look up to, am I in a financial place where I feel stable enough in my job, is there another career that I might be limited or barred from because of my self expression? I am in no way suggesting these are rules everyone has to have thinking of getting hand tattoos.  I guess I'm hoping to start the conversation on this current influx of hand tattoos, will these young people change the norm in accepting hand tattoos or are they just as limiting as we were raised to believe even in this day and age?
    • I love those, they're both really lovely!
