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.

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!😊
