Hello World!

I've been an illustrator for nearly 20 years and now I'm running away from the world of commercial art and making the move into tattooing. 

Hopefully I don't annoy people because I have MANY questions. I've included a couple of my illustrations.

Haha yeah I guess you're right. When I got tattooed on thursday me and the artist was just shooting the shit, and she told me she knew a guy who started tattooing at the ripe age of 35, and he was doing rather well these days. I love stories like that, so inspiring! 

Sorry, won't hijack your thread any more now OP!

You stopped at two?

For now - working on what to do next and who to do it. I'm in no rush at this point - still working as president of a small college so I'm slowly shocking my board of trustees. :-)

    • 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.
