Hey, I'm based in Mumbai, India, and I was looking to get a black and grey style tattoo.:6_smile:. Also, how do I post on/for a particular topic in the forums? It only allows me to select 'Initiation'.

I think you need to have a certain number of posts/likes on other people's posts before you can make threads anywhere else on the board...I don't remember exactly though.

I'm not super familiar with India specifically but there is seriously a ton of world class artists on the Asian and European continents. It depends on how far you're willing to go. 

Asia: https://www.instagram.com/perunov_dmitry/ , https://www.instagram.com/rochone1/ , https://www.instagram.com/newassasin_tattoo/https://www.instagram.com/elvintattoo/ , https://www.instagram.com/zartattoo/
Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Poland, etc): https://www.instagram.com/dmitriysamohin/ , https://www.instagram.com/natasha_tattoo/ , https://www.instagram.com/tema_arty/https://www.instagram.com/victorportugal/ , https://www.instagram.com/domantasparvainis/ , https://www.instagram.com/grindesign_tattoo/ , https://www.instagram.com/david.jorquera/

Sorry I don't know of anyone closer to you, but maybe some of these are doable for you, and if not, they at least let you see what's possible with some of the best black and gray artists in the world.

Welcome to LST!  Some of my favorite artists tattoo somewhat regularly in India - check out Robert Ryan and Freddy Corbin.  Mr. Corbin does amazing black and grey work.  And yes, remember good tattoos aren't cheap and cheap tattoos aren't good...

Thanks for the links. I think I'll stay local for my first tattoo (I don't have a HUGE budget for this, so I'd rather spend most of it on the tattoo than on travelling), I have reasearched and found a few good studios and artists whose tattoos I liked. Regarding the tattoo artists you told me about, they are very hard to come across in India and even when they do visit, it isn't well known where or when they come. Hence, my decision to get a well reputed local artist to do it. :)

    • I'm beginning the process of wrapping my lower leg. I'm somewhat new to the tattoo scene. I do know there are no "rules" but more of a practice with certain styles. I am maintaining a fully traditional style. From the majority of what I've seen of traditional work, there is space left between each separate peace and sometimes filled in with the dots and stars. My question is. I've seen some cases where all of the tattoos overlap, leaving no vacant skin between them. Is this practice frowned upon from a traditional standpoint?   Thanks in advance
    • There's new video on YouTube made and about Jeff Gogue.  It's him getting his 101 hours of work on his back in Japan, but also includes his work.  He talks about have to surrender to be able to get a piece like that.  Some interesting thoughts. I love his works and really enjoyed the video. Jeff Gogue - Surrender
