Non yet. I pushed my first session back from late October to feb 3rd. With the holidays here, I could not be selfish and drop a grand on a outline for myself. But when feb 3rd arrives, appointments will be mad ever 3 weeks until done. Already took every 3rd Friday off for 6 sessions. Will add more if needed. (Sure I will)

What's funny is his shop is s cash only shop. I find this crazy in 2016. I have had maybe 8 tattoo artists work on me and they all have take. My debit card/ credit card. I would think on large pieces like 20 plus hours, not many people are sitting on that type of tattoo cash. I've been saving, so I'm cool. I would rather bump the price of my tattoos up 3% and there is the credit card charge. He is an amazing artist, so people will get the cash I guess

Just received this final draft with shading. Color throughout the rest. He said he might make the dragons head a tad larger. Feb 3rd cannot come fast enough.

I'm thinking about this one a little too hard. Help me out with a last name?

What do you mean?

Here are pics of the first session. Only went about 3 hours. Got a late start because of icy road. One more session of outline and then on to color and sharing. I'm very happy. bc89b48b8db92df013dffb4627519168.jpgfaa5493ac7377aecee22fe3a7d00900f.jpga17acce6cce5d3da4bad9e11605771a9.jpg4025844f846f9a0b24cbcb8ce9e5a0e3.jpg

Of the tattoos from your artists you could have posted, you posted something that looks like a blind scratcher first try at a tattoo... I also don't see any Japanese work on your instagram.

Time for a bump to the thread. Heading back in for the forearm work Tuesday. As always, will post pics. Should have the whole sleeve outlined if I man up and get it all done Tuesday.

Had my 3rd session a couple days ago. It was sooooo painful. Inner arm from wrist to pit. I took only one pic and it's not that great of a pic. Doesn't really show much. I could only sit for 1.5 hours before I tapped. One more session of only 45 minutes left on the outline, then off to color/shading. I tend to sit much better, and for much longer, when it comes to shading and color. This tattoo is coming along nicely. 8e70e953f2d50105093e8d772f196423.jpg

I love it!

I'm planning to have a Chinese/Japanese dragon on my left leg, it's my sign :) but I don't know really well what kind of design to use. 

The inner arm area was painful for me too, and usually I don't feel pain at all!! I had a decoration of flowers and abstract/super-colored things and yeah it hurted! The outlines are so long to do!

Looks really really amazing!

Yeah, definitely! I'm from San Marino, so I can easily reach all of Central Europe.. although I have only 2 tattoos (if I remember well :4_joy::4_joy:) made by non-Sammarinese/Italian tattoo artists! :)

San Marino has a population of 33.000 and only two tattoo studios in the whole nation ahah but yeah there's plenty of them in Northern Italy. Plus, I love to have different styles on my body.. my two "long-term" tattooists are a guy from the '60s and a girl from the '80s so two very different styles just to give an example.. but I love to try new artists for a touch-and-go tattoo sometimes :) 

Maybe I'll get suggestions here :)

Oh, and by the way the dragon on my left leg is something I wanna do at any cost so that's already decided ahah I want it in a Japanese or (better) Chinese style, I'm in love with the one posted in this thread even if it's not colored yet! That's the kind of design I want!

    • It was my birthday recently and my husband's present was a "certificate" (he made it himself, it was adorable) for a new tattoo. Decided to not procrastinate like I seem to do with most certificates, so called yesterday and booked a spot for 8/28 with the artist who did my first tattoo. In an elevator today I was complemented on my stunning tattoo, so clearly I made the right choice to go back for more :)

    • Sorry, old thought here, but where are you finding them? I wanted a couple and the only ones that weren't ragged cut-offs on Amazon were two-month lead time cheapies from China. I went to Walmart and bought a long-sleeve black Wrangler shirt and carefully cut the sleeves off, but I'd like to find some twill shirts made purposely that way.

    • I just plan to be a voyeur. Really hoping the wife will join me. Seeing the joy and enthusiasm kind of gives a new perspective on it. Maybe she will understand my ink desire a little better then. Let see that a church elder can have fun, too.
