RScott Posted February 18, 2013 Share Posted February 18, 2013 Hey everyone. I'm Ryan and I live in the Philly suburbs. I'm a newbie whose been lurking for a while. I've loved tattoos and the culture of them forever. Most of my friends are heavily tattooed. I just have a few expensive hobbies and the money always went to those things before thinking of spending it on tattoos. There were also a few moments where I thought of doing it, but just couldn't decide on what I'd want. But I'm 31 now, have more time and money and the floodgates have opened. I'm a fan of large pieces, particularly traditional Japanese work. I like the folklore and symbolism behind the imagery also. I'm about 11 hours into a piece on my leg being done by Dana Helmuth at Read St. in Baltimore, with about 6 more to go. I'll post a photo when it's finished in a few weeks. I'm already looking at other artists to start another large piece. Since I've waited so long I'm being super picky about who I want work from. It's probably better that I waited so long because now I can actually afford the work that I really want. I've got catching up to do. hogg and Brock Varty 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
