Greetings from a (relatively) old dude

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I started getting tattooed over a quarter century ago. My first few pieces were done in places like Frisco and the UK, and then there was that ex-gf with a needle and bottle of india ink. I always loved the art, but then took a long break, and didn't get any work for years and years. Finally I began getting work again, starting with cover-ups and then getting more extensive. Some of my favorite tattooers are Tim Lehi, Eddy Deutsche, Leu, Rassier, Whitehead, Sylvia, Adrian Lee, Thomas Hooper, Freddie Corbin, guys like that. Not being a tattooer myself, but loving the art, it's interesting to learn more about the craft.

Peace,

AoY

Welcome! You have great taste in artists. Do you have work from all those folks?

Thanks for the welcomes. Ha! No, but I know and appreciate that a lot of folks like to collect different pieces from many different tattooers. But I've gradually been getting a suit, more or less, from Tim Lehi. Way before I started that, I'd wanted to go to Eddy D. and spoke to him back when he had 222, but by the time I got around to getting work again and could afford it, he moved and wasn't really taking new clients. Then I took my time in choosing the right artist, went about it differently from when I was young. I'm sure you all understand that. During my "research" process, I checked out NY Adorned, esp. Chris O'Donnell, Paul Booth's place, some others, but once I found Black Heart, I knew it was right. I'd be interested in hearing from folks about how they made their choices of tattooers as well.

That's awesome. I'm lucky to have been tattooed by Tim, too (and Eddy and Freddy and Scott and a few other folks you mention). But you certainly can't go wrong with a suit from Lehi.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
