That my company doesn't ship my job to India. We're not supposed to know that our managers are looking into this extremely stupid possibility. You should never outsource critical IT security to another country, especially the city of Chennai, which is still recovering from massive flooding from a month ago.

Yeah . . . my wife's IT job got out-sourced to Brazil.

- I hope my pain threshold holds up for another few years so I can get the worst spots done without too much trauma. Or else I'd have to resort to using cream, which would feel like a cop out after having gone this far au natural.

- I hope being at a steady schedule at work will be more good than bad. Yay to: predictability, stable cash flow, real free time. Oh shit! to: not being as free to take time off, becoming an adult.

- I hope I manage to direct my free time and energy to wortwhile and fulfilling pursuits and not just waste it on stupid time sinks and laziness.

- I hope to learn a lot of new things about the world and about myself. More personal development and unlocking of doors

- New friends, new trips, new experiences. Hardships and bliss.

- A post-capitalist society with freedom, peace and eco-friendly mindset

My tattoo want list is to finish my sleeve, get tattooed by Anderson Luna, Jason June, Tamara Santibanez, Eva Huber (again) and Ron Wells.

But my one true wish is to graduate from this goddamned PhD program, and get a preservation/research job with the National Parks Service or the USGS, ideally in a position that combines laboratory and field work.

And @mmikaoj - dude, the numbing cream is kinda awesome, though. An artist used it on me once (not at my request, she just did it), and it made the transition from hour 2 to hour 3 pleasant. However, it wears off rather quickly (after an hour or so), so if your session is long, you'll be hurting all the same at the end. It just gives you a bit of a respite mid-session.

Yeah I know, it's totally bizarre! I had one experience with it only and but it was not by request. A 6-hour one shot tattoo on my leg some years ago and that last hour would not have happened without cream. The artist, Peter Lagergren, asked if I wanted to try so I said yes because new things are interesting. I could feel everything, and quite intensively, but it was as if the pain component was completely gone. Super weird!

1. For LST to get Tapatalk interface working. (I know you're working on it and appreciate all that, just reeeeally hate using Forum Runner.)

2. Finish my left arm 2/3rd sleeve. All that remains is the vines/background to tie it all together.

To like my job more. I'm about a year and a half from retirement, and I really want to leave wishing I could stay. Instead, right now I can't wait until it's over. I keep telling myself that I spent 2.5 years under water, and I can make this!

For real! Knowing the sensation of getting tattooed, the cream makes it seem like you're getting stabbed with cotton swabs, haha. I have no moral qualms about using it again, especially if it's on a day I'm not up to par and/or a super painful spot.

    • Hi all, I am new in this industry and i would like to know if there is any platform only for professionals to find guest spots, long term work etc... even for tattoo owners studios to publish job offers for artists. I would like to fins a platform like Linkedin but only for tattoos professionals. HOnestly i do not like to use instagram or facebook for professional stuff and for example tattoodo is more to find clients not offers to work in studios or offers jobs if i am a owner.   Said that i really appreciate you support on it.   Thanks in advance and apologies if i make a mistake on where to posrt my concern   Best, John
    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.
