That is awesome, Luca! My favorite renderings of Fudo Myo-o are the ones like that, where the flames form a phoenix.

Horiokami does tebori, right?

Here is a link to my newly started backpiece. This photo is better than any that I have taken,and it is easier to upload. I used to be very hesitant to post any of my tattoos anywhere online, but my ideas on that have changed. This forum is about sharing tattoo related information, and since I do not make tattoos the only thing that I have to share is the tattoos that I have.

Also I usually hate in progress photos, but I will try and update things as they go forward. I am almost four hours in at this point. Hopefully I will have this finished by the end of the summer. And I am sorry that everyone has to see my ass.

Awesome start Luca and Avery! Look forward to seeing how your backs come along. I have started the color on my back and hopefully will be done by the end of summer or early fall. It really has been a journey for me . Thanks for sharing guys.

    • Hey.  I have this on my hand and I want to blend it with the rest of the tattoo. There will be some more tattoos in the white bits above it but I need an idea on how I can merge the armband with the rest through a background or something. And also I'd like to have some sort of an ending on my forearm. I was thinking of a mandala design but not sure. Some gradient from the armband down into the mandala tattoo. If you have any suggestions please let me know.  https://imgur.com/a/AICbRo1
    • It just hurts, but it’s more deeper. It comes and goes, never consistent. Usually when I wake up or go to bed when I haven’t washed it yet or have put lotion on. Sometimes it still gets irritated. According to my artist, it has healed nicely. I’m wondering if it’s an allergic reaction or the way I would position my arm when I would sleep for the past month to avoid damage to the tattoo. Sorry, I really don’t know how to explain it properly 
    • You need to be more specific about that ache but i dont really see how it can be related to the tattoo

      So as you may or may not have seen there were some request to start a new area for tattoo designs (thanks for the feedback!) so the LST Team decided to add a new tab obviously titled "Tattoo Designs" as you are here. But no one seems to be writing anything so I figured I would make an intro to our new tab and try to throw some gasoline and an M-80 on the fire to get it burning!
      Please do not let the title of the tab limit your writing, pictures, ideas, creative muses, etc to tattoo designs but let it be any art. What, who is your muse for a piece and how do you decide what genre/format to do it in?
      We see hundreds/thousands of dragons, tigers, skulls, roses, nautical, script, girls faces, daggers, yada yada art yet it continues to be done. There is nothing wrong with any of the above as I always enjoy seeing each artist or tattooers flavor added to it. For all you "foodies" out there think of the various spices or flavors chefs try over and over to make their own unique meal. Their own unique burger, grilled cheese, salad, you get the picture!
      Oh yeah if you have art or flash or tattoo machines or what have yous post some info with a link under the "Vendor Marketplace" as that are is pretty silent as well and we hope will generate some new business for you!!
      On with the bag of M-80s, lets do this.........
      I think the best roses are done by Tim Hendricks and would love to hear how he came to how they are now???

      What was the coolest tattoo you've ever seen and/or tattooed on a guy and why?
      What is the most attractive spot for a guy to have a tattoo?
      How about some pictures to accompany the stories and thoughts?

      okay, so, first off...i'm not sure if this is the place to ask this on here or not, so somebody let me know, haha.
      I'm considering getting a Northeast shader frame to do a build on...does anybody have an opinion on these frames? Good? Bad? I'm assuming the brass ones are pretty hefty...
      And what happened to Paulo Fernando frames? I built on a few and really liked em...now poof! I cannot yet make frames...and really enjoy doing builds.
      Cheers!

      This one's for artists and collectors alike. What's the longest you've ever sat for a tattoo and (for artists) the longest you've ever worked on a client?
      I've had several 5-hour sessions, which is kinda pushing it, but once, I sat for 9 hours. Without a break. Overnight. File under never again. The worst part is that I didn't really plan for a long session--it just ended up taking forever.
      I'm sure some of you have some crazy stories, possibly involving Shige, Filip Leu, and/or Chris Trevino. :)
      For the record, the last 4 tattoos I got took under 3 hours, combined. Much more fun!
