If you can keep up on new music you aren't getting tattooed enough.

I think the only 2015 release I bought and listened to this year was Monolord's Vaenir which is solid.

Vaenir is great, thanks for reminding me gotta put that on.

Cant even remember what came out in 2015 that i liked other than that one though

edit: Bullshit its this, this is the best 2015 release

The Action Bronson record has killer moments, but falls flat as a whole album for me. I need to check out Turnover and the new Torche and Deafheaven records that people mentioned. A friend of mine has been raaaaaving about Turnover, and I always like Torche but never fully invest. They blew me away live in a house a few years back. The previous Deafheaven record took me by surprise, so who knows?

In some particular order:

Touche Amore and Self Defense Family (collab record) - Self Love

Blacklisted - When People Grow, People Go

The Wonder Years - No Closer to Heaven

Desaparecidos - Payola

Beach Slang - The Things We Do to Find People Who Feel Like Us

Pet Symmetry - Pets Hounds

Dr. Dre - Compton

mewithoutYou - Pale Horses

Kyle Kinane - I Liked His Old Stuff Better

I haven't really given this much thought, but I know for sure my favorite album of the year is Megiddo's "The Holocaust Messiah." I also really liked the new Mgla, Hate Eternal, Gnaw Their Tongues (and the collab with Dragged Into Sunlight), and Leviathan full far as EPs, I liked Cosmic Church's new one and the new Vorum. My vote for "most fun" album would probably be Visigoth's "The Revenant King."

(Why yes, I do listen to metal almost exclusively)

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
