Hey,

Just stumbled on the site a couple of days ago and I have to say it's good to know there's a website dedicated to everything tattoo related. Awesome!

I just got my first tattoo a couple of weeks ago, a shoulder piece of a bowling ping style eagle and snake, and I love it. I'll attach a picture so you guys can see. I've already made an appointment to get another, I'm hooked! I dig traditional tattoos, I think their timeless. They looked good decades ago and will look good for decades to come.

I look forward to meeting some cool people and seeing some wicked tatts!

Here's the shoulder piece. I know that this is an initiation thread but I could really use the advice as I have an appointment in a weeks time with a guest tattoo artist. He's bringing some old school flash that I'll pick my next tattoo from and get it that day. I want to add to the bottom of the tattoo to make it half-sleeve length without taking away from the shoulder piece. I would go with a tattoo that goes with the same 'feel' as the eagle/snake, definitely traditional, and definitely colour. I was thinking maybe skull and crossbones, traditional devil face like the one on my profile, or a dragon wrapped around the bottom of the bicep above the forearm ditch.

Any advice is much appreciated, Thank You.

Nice tattoo and welcome. About the advice, the great thing about traditional tattoos is that you can really piece them together because they pretty much all go together. I probably wouldn't put the next tattoo directly below the eagle...I think tattoos like that look better when they aren't placed in a super orderly fashion if that makes sense at all...but talk with the artist about it and you'll work out placement.

Is Nick Wasko going to do your next one?

I figured that you live in the Toronto area if you got tattooed by Mike Bialek and I know that Nick Wasko is guesting soon in Toronto and is going to have some super cool old flash with him so I made an educated guess. And yeah, this means you're going to get something super cool, so please hang around and let us know how it goes.

I've been reading online that aquaphor healing ointment is a wicked aftercare product. Problem is, I can't find it at any drug stores in my area, only the 'origional and 'dry skin protection' which both have petroleum as a main ingredient. I read that anything petroleum based is no good.

Has anyone had any luck finding aquaphor healing ointment in Canada, or is it a US only line? Thanks!
