Jeff Tarinelli Posted January 21, 2013 Share Posted January 21, 2013 Greetings all, First id like to say that I very much like the layout and way of this forum. I am a moderator on another online community non tattoo related and appreciate the safe guards taken here to weed out the riff raff. I can fully appreciate what a daunting task this can be for moderators and creators. A bit about me. I've been tattooing for 18 years and created and owned Oddball Studios in Portland Oregon until last year in which I sold the studio to by business partner Jaoson Leisge in order to live and work in Cusco, Peru where I'm writing you all from now. I have spent a lot of time in Hawaii and studying Polynesian tattooing and this has been my passion and focus for the past decade. I like to use a fusion of these styles but out of respect try not to tattoo traditional designs on non Polynesians. I'm currently building my private client base now and find myself going from months booked out to days of down time. So Its my wish and hope to still feel connected to the tattoo industry and hopefully be able to give back to this forum the knowledge and ideas I have acquired over my career as well as learn from you all. Much love please feel free to visit my website for more information and pictures. A Tattooed Life, Cusco Peru. - Tattooed Life, Cusco Peru I look forward to helping new artists as I HAVE NO trade secrets. I don't fear competition and wish to uplift the tattoo art community as a whole and keeping secrets, is IMO, defeating to our art being appreciated and accepted. So ask anything, I will answer with my best and if I don't know an answer will have the humility to say....I dont know. Thanks for such a at first appearance a great forum and I hope to be part of this community. hogg, Avery Taylor and Steve 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
