@sboyer and his partner are about to drop another book via their Yellow Beak Press label- Born Weird.

I figure he's been so damned busy working on it that he's forgotten to start a thread. Since I'm super excited about it, I'll jump in and start one up- hope you don't mind, Scott?

I've been pretty vocal about my love for Higgs, Dave Lum and Scott Harrison's work in the 1990s- that "American Weirdo" style that Hardy talked about in Tattoo Time V. It really influenced how I got tattooed more than just about any other 'school' of tattooing save esoteric/occult stuff. I think it's fair to say that Weirdo stuff led me to where I am now.

I just put a few teaser images up from the book on Occult Vibrations, and... it's just weird. So weird. Almost (blissfully) untattooably weird.

It's going to be like the Zeis book- first 200 (of 2000) copies gets a watercolor print.

I'm really geeked about this one.

I'm so excited about this, @sboyer! Another great book from Yellow Beak Press.

I was so excited apparently that I went out and got tattooed by the second tattooer on the list of contributors yesterday, Adam Craven. It was a coincidence, however seeing the exhibit made me more aware of his work, instead of just the guy who works with Mav, who does nice tattoos.

Been getting all the updateds on IG and getting more and more excited for this. Based on all the teasers I've been seeing, this book is going to give me brain damage. Keep up the good work @sboyer

    • Are there any websites or online guides for symbolic meaning behind flowers? Preferably green or purple flowers. I love lotus flowers (plus I have a good bit of Indian in me, from India) but they're done SO MUCH. The flower would be in the upper right hand side of my chest, close to my collar bone and shoulder since that's where my cancer port scar is
    • Hello! I am Gracy. I am a recent SVA graduate and I hopefully look forward to getting an apprenticeship in the future.  Here is my website with the flash I have done: https://realgraceevalentine.wixsite.com/website/tattooflash I came here to obtain feedback on different topics, but for now, I need feedback from other tattoo artists or enthusiasts about something.  Recently, the Kyoto Animation studio has been destroyed due to arson, and lives have been lost.  I am considering making tattoo flash to sell to fans, all inspired from different anime made by KyoAni. My intent is to raise money by selling this flash, and all proceeds will go to an official GoFundMe for the KyoAni recovery. My worry is that some people will take the designs and get it tattooed without paying, and it would be unfair to those who paid.  What advice would anyone give before I proceed with this?  I would appreciate any responses (honest and respectful please. This is a serious topic.) Thanks!
