I think the back piece is really one of my favorite things when it comes to meeting other people with lots of coverage...

My tattoos on my back are my favorite, and it just sucks I can't see em... but that's what a photo is for right, so here goes...

Top Chrysanthemums were by Casey Corklic Garland, TX, and the Jigoku Dayu was done by Doug Love, Santa Cruz, CA..

And of Course, theres a cover up or two. . .

That is some old Trevor McStay work. I like his work a lot, especially what he is doing now.

It is quite old indeed. Unfortunately it was all I could find... if you have any new stuff of his PLEASE post it! I might go for a search now and see what I can find

I'm just gonna get other shit around it i think. I'm probably going to do 4 medium sized tattoos as oppose to two huge side pieces because I just don't have the room for them. So like one on each side under the arm pit and then one on each side in the lower section with probably not much around my waist. I've never been a fan of really solid coverage, like no skin showing. It's ok on other people but just not what I'm going for I guess. I'm more a fan of the traditional american look of a bunch of tattoos all over with probably stars and dots or that type of filler.

This post has been my favorite so far. It's a large reason why I joind and I think it needs some fresh love. Here's my backpiece, fresh after the final session a few months ago. Jill Bonny (Horiyuki) at State of Grace Tattoo in San Jose has done all my work to date.

After a few months off, I decided to add background. We start again this weekend.

Amazing. I was actually there a few months back getting a spider by ben grillo while Jill Bonny was working on your pick.

Keep the picks coming

Thanks! Is this the Black Widow spider on SOG's Facebook page? That's pretty sweet! All the pictures they were uploading while he was guesting there were impressive. Ben Grillo is awesome.

These are by Horitsune II from Osaka Japan. The first is on his pupil Miyazo and the second is on tattooer Rob Admiraal (The piece on the lady is one of Robs' clients/his work)

I tried to find a better photo of Robs' backpiece, but good luck finding much if any of Horitsune IIs' work online. There is a series of videos though called 'Onko Chishin' and are well worth checking out, so do it ;)

    • My tattoo started peeling a couple days ago and the part of the triangle came off unnaturally. Now it looks strange and it has a brown coloration around the affected area that concerns me. Besides that, it doesn’t seem to have changed and the texture of the affected area looks indented and different. What’s going on?
    • Not really a new tattoo but I got a call from the shop that did my tattoos. They are having a professional photographer come in to shoot some of the artists favorite pieces and the artist who did mine choose one of mine as one of his favorites that he wanted shot. Thought that was pretty sweet. I’m guessing it’s the clipper ship but I’m not sure.

      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!
