Halloween in Austin Texas!

Recommended Posts

Hey ya'all!

My lady and I are going to be visiting Austin Texas for Halloween.

we're already making a list of fun touristy stuff to do (I don't care if seeing bats is touristy, I'm going to see the GODDAMNED BATS) but we're still trying to figure out fun stuff to do!

We're 100% on Terror Tuesday at the Alamo and we're considering tattoos. Any good walk-in spots in Austin?

When I lived there you could go pretty much everywhere in the capital (pre-9/11) so not sure if you still can do as much there. The river walk is cool and the botanical garden was one of the best I'd been to at that point. The cathedral of junk is pretty awesome too.

the old san francisco steak house was awesome but I've heard its no longer open.

Check out the antique shop Uncommon Objects on South Congress. It has the best shit, and it is close to the bats. Have fun at the Alamo. I worked there for the year I lived in Austin, and it is the best theatre in the country.

Uncommon is on my list!

It's on my bucket list in life to see a movie, specifically a horror movie, at the Alamo.

So I'm glad to be crossing that off. They recently threw Madonna out for texting during a film.

    • Hey, thanks for your input!    Here's how it's doing now. About 4 weeks now. Definetly not as bad as I thought it would, but not great either. I'll be waiting to get it fixed later in the year. Good thing is it still looks pretty good even if its pretty shit 😂 live and learn!    This guy has done a couple full arm blackouts too so I really dunno what's up.    It's hard to find someone who has much experience doing this type of work where I live.    Have connected with another artist who has also done it and has decent healed pics, and am waiting on her advice too.  Also, for fixing it, do you have to go over the whole thing again, or just the dodgy spots?    How does using different black inks affect it?    Guy wants to touch up in a month or two but yea I don't think my skin will be ready by then lol dya have an instagram I can follow? 🙂
    • just got a message by a friend who send me these thread... I'm a blackwork tattooer...and to be honest it's one of the most difficult technic, cause you have to pack it super solid in large areas, with different "soft/thick" skin...so it's not wondering I'm mostly repairing blackouts... problems like yours can arise for various reasons... could be a voltage/handspeed issue at this area(overworked/traumatized) or he had a "dirty" needle (plasma and vaseline get stuck together with pigment and fills the space between the needles) could also happen it was accidentally touched with dirty hands by a friend/animalnose, got sticked at sleeping(you can't remember)... and i could make the list way longer... WE WON'T FIND OUT ANYMORE... but in the end the crust will switch to scars... sadly there will be no way around... keep it clean and let it heal... If it does not get better in the next few days, you can get cortisone ointment from the pharmacy.   BUT! THE GOOD THING! it can be reworked once the healing is over and the scars are settled down... so you should give it minimum half a year but as i said -IT CAN BE REPAIRED!! For the next time you should consult an artist who is into blackouts    sadly can't post images, so i can't show you how your scars will be looking and how it is looks after reworking a blackout...     So here we go... the first picture will be show how a healed overworked blackout looks like...   second/third was around 3 month after reworking by me...
    • It almost looks like an ingrown hair or something? I don't know. But yeah, I bet it'll clear up before too long.
