Recommended Posts

Might be early, but who all will be attending Bay Area 2018   October 19-21?! If so, who are you getting tattooed by / hoping to get tattooed by?

I'll definitely be there at least one day, but likely more. No tattoos planned yet.

The last couple conventions, I've helped set up and breakdown with Andrew at Raking Lights Projects. It's cool to see and feel the different vibe and atmosphere at those times. I  end up spending a lot of time chatting with him at his booth, so come by and say hi and check out some amazing art from some top-notch tattooers. Aside from art, they also put out some great books! If you don't have the 50 States book from Chad yet, you're missing out. Pick one up and go get it signed by Chad at the convention!!

I also have a buddy who might come down from Seattle to attend... he's hoping to get another tattoo from Luxiano. I'm trying to convince him to get more from other artists as well since he's never been to such a convention of heavy hitters and he has plenty more space than I do.

Hell yeah! Will definitely stop  by the booth. I got 7 last week (6 Pagoda + 1 Shop) and I'm trying to tone down the insanity at Bay Area haha. Not sure if I'll be able to though. Your buddy should absolutely take advantage of being around all these crushers!

my buddy's confirmed with Luxiano for Friday at 9pm. his appointment was initially at 7:oo, but he got bumped back. Initially, he seemed a little bummed, but i listed a few pros about getting tattooed a little later in the evening and he appreciated it.

I'm also hitting up the opening party at ATAK SF on the Thursday before. Anyone else checking that out?

DM me and let's connect.

Hey ! I've been so busy with work, haven't checked back in on the forum. I wish I could make that party, but I'm not getting there til an hour and a half before my 7:30PM Acetates appointment tomorrow night.  I've got 4-5 hour sessions start of Saturday and Sunday though, but you can only walk around a convention so many times haha. I'll definitely be stopping by the booth to shoot the shit.

    • Tylenol is not a blood thinner, it should be fine to take before the tattoo, the best things you can do before a tattoo is mentally prepare for it, put yourself in a pleasant place in your head, perhydrate the day and night before and get a good nights sleep, eat a really good healthy meal right before the tattoo, bring sugary candy and water with you to the tattoo, I bring skittles and M&M's, I also bring a banana to eat half way through, eat a little candy throughout the tattoo, it will make you feel better. don't forget to turn the sounds off on your phone during the tattoo,like the ringer and text alerts, it's the polite thing to do.  
    • I like the new guy's style, too.  Highlights and some outlining added to the top might help it, applied by the right person. Print out a photo and have him show you what he's intending.  I don't know about the Tylenol question, but I doubt it'd help much. It's just a sensitive area and it's gonna suck. 
    • Some time ago I have posted a tattoo that the guy screwed up. The tattoo is going to be "repaired" guy said that he needs a full session to make it look good.  Meanwhile he is doing me this to join both tattoos together there will also be colours like orange eyes and pentagram and flames around the horns.  But I couldn't last the whole session so he only finished the contours it was painful much more than the chest.  The only place I had a bit of relief was the middle of my belly.  So here is the question is Tylenol ok to use before the session.     And could you give me any personal opinion what do you think about this idea of tattoo.  Is it going to work I mean the top tattoo is kind of more realistic style and what is going to make on my belly is not going to be so much realistic. Personally I really like his style and the idea to put a bit of life to the top tattoo with colours but would to hear some honest opinions.   Thanks.  Pawel.
