Pikey

This is my title, this is my gun.

… This is for fighting, this is for fun.

So here is my more or less obligatory post.

I've been cruising this forum on and off for a long, long time so I guess it's about time to introduce myself anyways. Well … They call me Pikey. I'm a Norwegian collector (of sorts) and I wear a lot of black socks. (For future reference). I like skateboarding, tattoos, traveling, music, books, beer(s), mountains and so forth, and so forth. I am a man of hundred hobbies, thousand interests, a million opinions and a billion thoughts.

As mentioned above I love to travel, so that's where I spend most of my money. Like now, I will leave for Central-America again in a couple of weeks. I can't seem to find any top notch artist there, but I am thinking that at least Mexico has got to have some …

I tend to keep my likings in the directions of traditional and neo-trad.

So to start off; are there some magnificent tattoo artists in Central-America?

Also; If I make it to southern California I'm eager to drop by Phil Hatchet-Yau. Has any of you good folks here at TSL got other suggestions that might intrigue me?

Thanks a lot for the welcoming words folks, and double thanks to Joe Shit for making me browse through links all night! :D

@Iwar; I am born and bred in Molde, where I also currently live. When it comes to tattooers worth mentioning El Monga at Aloha Tattoos (Barcelona) did a piece on my calf last year and Deno JR at Circus Tattoo (Madrid) has done a little here and there.

..I like to travel too..do you stay in hostels,or use something like airbnb when traveling..

I forgot to answer this one, but I am definitely a hostel traveler. I love me a good hostel and some of the ones I've been to in South- and Central-America have been over the top! On the other and I have been a member on CouchSurfing since 2006 or something, but I haven't tried it yet. I need to do that if I start running out of cash and/or get to USA next spring.

    • 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.
