Slightly Better Search Method

Recommended Posts

We all know the search function built into this website can be a little clunky. Through some trial and error I discovered a search method that will direct you to the exact page of the thread where you can find the words you search for.

Here is a quick example:

I want to find posts that include the words "Steve Boltz"

Go to Google

Type "Steve Boltz site:www.lastsparrowtattoo.com/forum" into the search box and click search.

This might be helpful in discovering who was the first person to use the term "squid pants" on LST.

Hey guys,

I went ahead and implemented google search via the LST search box - so now we have site-wide search there that should match what you find in google.

I haven't tested extensively yet, so please let me know of any wonkyness.

enjoy

Maybe it's just me, but when I try the search box I end up with an empty white area where the search results should appear...

I'm using the latest Chrome on Mac.

Actually, sorry, it is just me. I keep forgetting that I'm using Ghostery to block unwanted trackers and stuff and it blocked the Google Search API in this case. I whitelisted it and it works like a treat now, thanks!

    • If they can completely cover a black tattoo with a different design, I'd think covering yellow and orange with a darker red would be simple.  The color probably will be different than ones done over bare skin, but should just add depth. Any decent artist should be able to easily handle this. Also, welcome.
    • Hello all! Stoked to be to be a part of this awesome community after lurking around for a bit haha  I joined this forum because of all the great advice and support people have been receiving in their post. You guys rock!   Recently, I just got a dragon done with mainly black scales, with yellow/gold and orange to compliment the scales. However, I realized that I don't really like the yellow and orange and want to do a red to dark red or maroon dragon. Is it possible to tattoo dark red or maroon over the yellow/gold and orange? How complex would it be? Any cons to this? Another thing to mention is that not all scales are fully colored in with the yellow and orange (all the black is done already). Would the colors be slightly different for the ones I'm replacing over vs the ones that haven't been filled in yet? Thanks!  
    • 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
