    • Hi there. First of all I think you have a very nice tattoo. I can very much relate to the feelings you're going through as my mind went crazy when I had my back piece done a little more than a year ago. I was obsessed with it. It felt like it wasn't part of my body and I wanted it gone. It took some time to get used to it and to accept it as part of me. My tattoo wasn't just an impulse decision, yet it felt like something too big, too dark, too weird on my body, I felt like i let down my family and kids and that I'm a freak. Well, now, quite some time later I can tell you I got used to it and I like my tattoo very very much and I'm back to being me, the strong, confident me.  Give it time. If you feel weird right now it's ok. You'll be better! Don't be hard on yourself and keep living your normal life :-).
    • Alright thanks, I was just told it was going to be lower than 1600 euros total, we're more looking at 3 000 ish but hey i'm very happy with the results so far so cant complain 
    • Unless it's very painful and has a bad odor, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't see anything that indicates any kind of problem.

      ok, i still have a few copies from the last run of my first 2 sketchbooks, 'pirated, passe, and politically incorrect' vol 1 and 2. if i remember correct they are 45 or 50 pages of clean line drawings. mostly neo-traditional hipster shit and original style traditional stuff.
      the new book is at the printer right now. 'street and state vacation' its just what it sounds like, old school prison and lowrider/teen angel stuff sorta like the style i came up on way back in the day but drawn a little bit better... same deal, all images are clean line drawings, not loose sketches. this book should be somewhere around 80-90 pages and is crammed full of cool stuff. first 2 books are $20 a piece plus the ride, new big ass book is $30 plus the ride. if you like shoot me an email and ill be happy to send you a few pages as a sample. patodonnelltattoo@yahoo.com or shoot me a text at (714)588-7394

      Picked up the new Chris Garver coloring book (for my reference library) at the book store. Titled: FLASH coloring in the Tattoo style. 

      "Cool tattoo art to color from an in-demand tattoo celebrity! Flash, a follow-up to the wildly successful Color Odyssey, presents even more of Chris Garver’s gorgeous designs. As a sought-after figure in the tattoo world, Chris is a perfect choice to bring together tattoo art and adult coloring—and this book perfectly showcases his distinct and detailed style. With images printed on single-sided pages, this book will attract both traditional coloring fans and tattoo devotees looking for ideas for their next inking."
      FYI About the Author
      Chris Garver is a professional tattoo artist at the world-renowned Invisible NYC on New York City’s Lower East Side. He is also a former star of TLC’s popular reality show Miami Ink. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Chris began experimenting with tattooing at the age of 17 before attending Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts. He has been a full-time professional tattoo artist since moving to New York in his early 20s
      I think this a great introduction to the art, for the plain skins. 
      Though I take issue with the term "Tattoo Style" I can understand why he put that on the cover. It is a coloring book, with Tattoo related and familiar imagery contained within, so I get it.
      When flipping through the book, I found myself thinking, dagn, I would wear that...and that! 
      Congratulations to Chris Garver on his second book. 100 pages with perforated pages so you can tear a page out and color it.  I recommend picking up a copy.
      So LSTF Did you get one and what do you think about it?

      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?
