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. :)

    • Somehow lucked into a Grez appointment Friday at 1pm hahaha. So I guess that's happening.
    • Thanks for sharing, @jnin. I loving hearing these stories about the incredible kindness that people can how. It's a good way to start my Sunday. Your MRSA battle on the other hand...OMG. How terrifying. Glad that you are able to get it under control. 
    • I have a couple of new things! I got tattooed by Timothy Hoyer in my state of CO, about a month ago and then headed SF for another session with Scott Sylvia. I’ll post pics soon but I’ve been battling MRSA on my foot. When both are fully healed I’ll post :) what I can tell you guys is that Timothy is a really nice and down to earth guy (it was my first time meeting him). Also, Scott did something that was way too cool. I’ve become friends with him at this point and I was explaining that I lost my collection of flash and prints and I’m in the middle of rebuilding. Him being as cool as he is, he’s gonna send me a ton of prints!!! Couldn’t ask to meet better people with this hobby. I don’t comment often but there are people as obsessed with this thing as me and I knew you guys would find that cool.
