Hi there - I live in Chicago and have a mere three tattoos. I've gotten them all in the past six months; once I decided to start, I got the bug! Just posted my most recent one in the latest tattoo lowdown. My other two are below. The bird, my 2nd, is by DJ Pearson at Awaken Tattoo in Chicago (fresh pic); the hibiscus/clover is by Ashley Wollaston at Speakeasy in Chicago (one month healed pic). I'm pretty committed to black and black-and-grey pieces; no color on this skin!

Welcome to the forum - and nice work!

Thanks!  I'm a grown up army brat :) whose father is not thrilled with my work (I think he associates tattoos with enlisted men, spring breakers, and prisoners, not his little girl) but hey, I'm 29 and confident in my choices! And even he admits they're well done

I'm my generation, normally the only officers who sported tattoos were Mustangs who came up through the enlisted ranks. Certainly, times have changed for the generations since then but, unfortunately, some bias remains. I got my first when I was a few weeks short of 61 - a bucket list item and glad I did it. I am now president of a small college - another group that is not well known for sporting ink. I actually enjoy breaking the stereotype to encourage people to understand that who we are on the inside is the real test of who we are as people. I love my ink - regularly hire people with and without it - and look forward to my next tattoo...just not sure what/where I want to do it, yet.

Be you, be confident....and love your father for who he is, not who you wish he was. Life is way too short.

    • If you have ever worked as a tattoo artist, piercer, or any type of skin artist it's extremely important you contact the HubSpot corporation, and Certified Tattoo Studio, a HubSpot customer. Modern Driven Media's (a HubSpot partner) CEO Shana Steigerwalt, was hired by the owner of CertifedTattooStudio, Nando Mondragon, to collect the personal data of everyone that could be found by hacker's on the black market. Ms. Steigerwalt bought the data from hackers, with the number of individuals' data collected totaling more than one million people globally. You on this board almost certainly all had your data purchased illegally from hackers on the black market. CTS would pay MDM for this service, in violation of numerous state and federal laws, then would launder the money through their business accounts in violation of federal money laundering laws. HubSpot, and CTS, are required by law to inform you if they are storing your data, and how they got your data (in this case through multiple felonies). You have a claim (can file suit) against MDM, CTS, and the owners of both companies. If you discover your data was illegally collected and being housed by CTS, you should contact your local district attorney and a private attorney immediately. Numerous states have their own state statutes regarding data privacy and detail additional state level legal action you can take as a victim, and you are a victim of a crime. Numerous investigations are currently underway, but can take time to prosecute. In the meantime contact HubSpot and demand Modern Driven Media immediately be banned from the software platform for violating their contact, the law and your rights. The tattoo industry was intentionally targeted during this criminal enterprise that spanned most of 2022. Regardless if your data, your rights, were violated, contact HubSpot and express your outrage at one of their partners intentionally targeting your industry as a victim. Demand MDM be immediately banned. HubSpot: "One of the quickest ways to get in touch with us is to call our support line directly. The main number is easy to remember: 1-888-HUBSPOT ext. 3 (1-888-482-7768 ext. 3)."
