I had a great Christmas! Because I spend so much time on the road people know that I don't want anything that's very big and that's not useful or AWESOME.

I got 2 pounds of my favorite coffee

a carved wood demon coin bank

a smudge stick

comfy pajama pants

a couple bottles of nice wine

gift cards to Amazon and Barnes and Noble

jewelry and some other girly stuff that will be easy to pack

Did just fine myself, I still have tomorrow at my dad's place to go.

- Amazon gift cards

- gloves

- Candy, of course; 1kg of wine gums being the highlight.

- scratch tickets, (won $50, woot!)

- selection of bbq rubs and hot sauces

- bike accessories

Getting gifts is fun, obviously, but getting together with family is what's really important. Seeing how excited my kids get is the best. Oh, and also the celebration of the advent of jesus is a big deal too :)

I don't really celebrate, but at a secret santa exchange with some friends I ended up with a Grindcore House travel mug, coffee mug and a $20 starbucks gift card - of all the gifts given / received, I couldn't have been happier, as I'm known amongst my friends as the coffee nazi.

Unexpectedly, a friend also got me a bag of Black Cat coffee beans.

Yes, I'm serious about this stuff... Monday Morning Espresso | Crispy Hundos

My scott sylvia tattoo was an early christmas present, but also getting an iPad in the mail today! (Not much to open on christmas...) I just graduated college this week, so lots of gift cards and cash too. Hopefully picking up some nice clothes & stuff soon. Choosing your own presents is always ideal :)

nice.. coffee nazis and denim people..

kyle, currently im in a pair of left fields for the last 4 months. probably my favorite pair so fair. theyre the nisshinbo denim and wear beautifully (crazy electric blues). ive been in a handful of pairs, but id probably say that these are my personal favorites (so far). i dig a lot of japanese stuff like momotaro, pbj's, sammies, etc. but have been psyched for all of the lines in the states currently. whenever get my cash flow situation right, im leaning towards a pair of railcars, im pretty sure..

@YOMONEY cool stuff there for sure , I was not familar with these lines but I also like Tellason from the U.S., as well as the usual suspects . My weapon of choice right now is the 1966 Lee 101z Japanese numbers best I've ever owned those Union Sewing machine stitches and sort of fluffy denim make for some hard wearing , was kind of pissed I had to give em a vinegar and water spruce up for the sake of the relatives noses - Christmas and all .

i like those lees! its a shame, a lot of these "american heritage" lines are more difficult to come across in the us- carhartt wip, woolrich woolen mills, lee 101, etc. youre lucky, theres more access to that stuff in the uk. tellasons are dope. rogue territory, baldwin, and 3sixteen are excellent american lines as well. im not crazy patriotic or anything. its just cool to see brands being made at home and theyre like half the price as japanese lines. but from what i understand, on the flipside, the japanese will go crazy and pay a lot for american brands right now. i think we do the same tradeoff thing with them in tattooing!

@TrixieFaux how's that Forever Tattoo book?

It's really cool. Chock full of black tattoos and just a few w/color. I have mostly looked at the pictures so far but I have read a few little snippets and they've been interesting. I'd recommend. Can't wait to look through it some more.

A coffee cup.

Some pastry.

A new shank.

An old Altemus Edition of Dante's Inferno, illustrated by Dore, from around 1890 or so.

Nice book gift. I am somewhat of a collector of various version's of Dante's Inferno/Divine Comedy books. Was actually the insperation behind my first tattoo of a Dante's Inferno leg piece using Doré's illustrations.

I got a chair back massager this christmas for my terrible back (numerous car accidents/motorcross/etc). Also shit-tons of beer stuff, and even my own brewing equipment...epic!

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
