I have a friend who lives in Providence and has been thinking about getting tattooed, I'll let him know about this.

He's doing a masters in graphic design at RISD so he probably wants some pretentious art school garbage, so hopefully he'll act on this and actually get a good tattoo.

But I doubt it.

@Graeme Send him in!! I am sure Ron is a pro at seducing people with his own designs. because they are awesome. Working near RISD has made me really good at complimenting art school sketches while totally vetoing them. "that would make an amazing PAINTING!"

@ian he makes it really hard to settle on a tattoo design because looking through his flash for too long makes me want them all equally.

@Erica You don't have to convince me about Ron's designs! The last time I got tattooed by him it was super hard to choose what I wanted because so many of his designs are SO COOL. I ended up with the forest skull because that one is a mind-blower but the same can be said about so many of his designs. The negative space ones he's doing are so goddamned amazing. Love that guy.

I can't even imagine what sorts of things people bring in.

@Graeme Lets convince your friend. I struggled with wanting a negative space design when I was trying to pick for myself this week. SERIOUSLY RON, stop being so good. Its stressing me out. I love the hand with negative space snake Ive seen & that forest skull is one of my favorites too!

@The Hyena. Dammit to Hell! If only Ron could/would come to within driving distance of Nashville... I saw all the H.P Lovecraft inspired tattoos he did when he was guesting in Providence R.I. and was like "Damn, that's the guy I want to tattoo the Cthulhu tentacle print I own!"

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
