Attention all tattooers: Dan Dringenberg had approximately 20 machines stolen recently in the San Francisco area. Here is a list of all the machines with descriptions and their numbers. If you encounter someone attempting to sell any one of these machines please take the necessary course of actions. This picture below can be easily downloaded and printed out for any shop to keep as reference for the ‘shady’ machine vendors.

Good news! 14 of Dan's machines were returned thanks to a tip that came into @Juan Puente at BlackHeart. They're still working on recovering the remaining machines.

It's my understanding that the reciever of the 14 machines googled them to find out where they came from and link to LST came up, and that's how he knew who to contact. Now we're fighting crime and injustice against more than just the skin, go LST.

"LST: Take A Bite Out Of Crime"

Can we get some LST crime fighter shirts made?

Guys, I'm sorry that I'm writing here off-topic, but for some reason, I can not create my topic (all topics are not cliched when I try to create them). I tried to find the topic as close as possible to the topic of my question. 😶

In general, my boyfriend is not yet an experienced tattoo artist. He beats me with a tattoo and does not know how to fill a tattoo better: through an ordinary coil tattoo or rotary tattoo machine (we use Yuelong rotary Liner Shader  and Seth Ciferri Liner tattoo ? We think that rotary stuffing will not hurt as much as a reel. Tell us, please?!

Below is a photo of my tattoo...

Many thanks!😊

 

 

WTF ?

    • In my mind you've already got the acceptable limit = "inspiration". If you take that picture some a willing tattooist and say "I want this EXACTLY as this is" and they trace it out then it's just reproduced artwork, like a cartoon character.  If you take that picture to a qualified artist and say I'd like a goat's head and raven similar to this then you're likely to get an original piece of art. 
    • hi all! it's been a minute since i've been online - hope you're all doing well and are safe! ☺️ i wanted to ask, in your opinion, at what line does inspiration become ripping off another artist? is it okay to see someone's art and commission another artist to do their own take or spin on a concept? what are your thoughts? for example, i really want to get black phillip from the vvitch tattooed on my leg. i love the composition, styling, and overall design of this artist's interpretation. however, i would not want my own artist to blatantly copy someone else's design? i'd want them to incorporate their own ideas, styles, color palette, etc. to the table. is this okay in your opinion? i know that people feel strongly about copying (as they should) and i don't want to step on anyone's toes!
