Any updates?


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.

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!

Had a good session yesterday. Finished the outline and got some color in. Taking longer then expected. My artists hours do not work with my work hours. So I have to take vacation days to get work done. Oh well. Still loving it. a06308c8724fae651315489a9aae1d69.jpgf7d6efad00d3b1a03c97c6a1c910354a.jpeg3e5b3afbc1689dc4b06008a7704455dc.jpeg510289ede0a6730dfcea2200290a63e7.jpeg

    • That looks you have some rash or skin condition. Go see your doctor. We aren't doctors here, and we can't diagnose anything.
    • Hello, new to the forum, I had some questions about white ink. I got a black and grey half sleeve in 2 sessions last year. September and December. I got some white highlights that have seemed to never heal properly. Some spots are red and raised, while others are normal looking. It's been 6 months since my second session and I still have raised spots. Is this normal? I went back to the shop after my first session and they were like yeah that's fine, nothing to worry about.  I've included some pictures.    Thanks for any input!
