Hey so it went ok, didnt get enough time to put colors and left some part unfinished so it doesnt look that good just yet, the guy is cool and is overall a pretty cool experience
a new source of worry:
I m paying 500 euros for around 5-6 hours of work, we're not even halfway done, it's gonna cost me a lot more than I anticipated, I'm not sure if the guy is slow or whats up but over 10 hours of work and we're not done with the arm/shoulder part yet
Still while i'm there he's defenitely working as i can feel the needles in pretty much non stop, maybe it just takes that much time i dont know : P
ive posted a picture that I drew years ago and there is what I believe is a Japanese symbol instead of Chinese. I would greatly appreate a lot if someone where to help translate the symbol to English
thank you for reading
Heading to Oakland, California to see Freddy Corbin at Temple tattoo to get inked for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Appointment is noon, Tuesday.
Daniel Higgs did the original wedding tattoos at Realistic Studio in San Francisco and Freddy was in the shop watching and making comments while he was doing us. Daniel doesn't do tattoos any more. So our first choice is Freddy to keep spiritual continuity.
The wife and me are getting a "25-XXV added somewhere . I am also getting a "Dragon" mixed into it...
I'll keep you up to date.
Hey, guys. My name is Bonnie and I am from the mississippi gulf coast. I am currently going to school for chemistry. A few years ago I determined that I needed to get some art on my back. After years of deliberating, I've decided on a full japanese style back piece. I'm starting it in a week in Nola! My family thinks I'm crazy for choosing such a large tattoo for my first, but it just feels right. (Don't know how long it will feel right once the needle is going across my skin, haha). Anyways, I came across this site looking for advice and saw that everyone posting seemed really lovely and friendly. I'm looking forward to talking to folks. I'm pretty nervous so advice and words of encouragement are always appreciated!
So I'm originally from Texas currently in Florida, I'm active duty navy going on 7years now. Not an artist just an enthusiast. I have a full sleeve extending to my chest on my left side and a half sleeve on my right soon to be full sleeve. They're Japanese style smoke waves and all. Had them done in Japan by two different artist one of which left a few minor imperfections (no big deal). I'm trying to find a way to do a smooth transition in-order to have multiple styles yet have it all come together nicely. I'm open for any and all suggestions.
