Sup dudes/dudettes,

I've been getting tattooed for 15 years in Philadelphia and just went to my first convention last year.

Collected works from Eric Perfect, Mike Hooligan, Scott Bakoss, Eddie Kes, The Gus, Mike Fite, Mario Desa, Han Shinko and I just booked an appt with Chad Koeplinger at Pagoda City Fest and am really excited. Praise Jah I still have both forearms entirely clear.

I referred my little brother up to Smith Street, he really hit it off with Bert and got a lot of work that I'm pretty jealous of.

Spent countless hours at Kadillac Deuce Tattoo and Olde City Tattoo but getting tattooed at Great Lakes Tattoo on vacation was a treat.

Not sure how this website works, I'm just trying to keep my eyes peeled for people guesting on the east coast and shops I should check out.

Do I post the pictures to a thread post or is there a repository?

You can deposit them in the Gallery and then link to them here. After you put them there, when posting look below where it sez "Insert other media", then select "insert existing attachment" and select what you want.20150423_195846.jpg

Or, you can post direct from your HDD (I think) using the "Drag files here to attach. or choose files... "

    • Right! Especially when they go on and on about deeper meanings... people don't seem to realize that there don't HAVE to be these super deep meanings behind tattoos, haha!  I haven't posted my first tattoo anywhere yet, no! But here's a picture of it:  It's not even that special or anything. Frankly, in terms of technique and placement and the like, I like the second one more. But the whole geometric/ornamental generally does pretty well with people I've found. I think for most it's just the right amount of, say, elegance and coolness while not necessarily being too out there yet.  It's also two years old by now so the lines definitely aren't what they used to be LOL, and especially with how admittedly poorly I protect it from sun it could very much benefit from a touch-up but I do still like it.... especially for a first tattoo which I, for all intents and purposes, wasn't nearly informed enough on. People will always ask why the orca, and while there is a story behind this one I'm not about to tell any stranger that. "You see, it all started 15 years ago, when my father........"  😂 I just tell them it's my favorite animal, which isn't a lie, but even then they'll go on about "but why?"  Also, I'd have many a person ask what animal it is. I've heard whale, dolphin (not entirely wrong) and even shark. 😂😂 At least with your piece it's very clear what it is! Maybe that also has something to do with the whole getting people to comment on it... when it isn't entirely clear, people might be more predisposed to ask/comment.  At any rate, I would definitely not consider folks not commenting on your tattoo as proof of them not liking it. I really don't think it works that way! Your tattoo is awesome and you should be proud of it! 🙂 (That, and of course the placement of the tattoo does matter a lot too, haha). 
    • Thanks @Fig1996! honestly I think I’d probably hate if everyone in met asked me about or commented on it too! Haha grass is always greener I suppose! What was your first piece? Is it posted anywhere on here?
