Is there a way that we can make a forum category, or sub-category, maybe even a sticky of guest spot news ? I have missed out on some opportunities to get tattooed when a lot of good artist travel to Austin, Tx. I usually get to see their facebook that says going to "TX in one week", and it really sucks not to know of their arrival earlier in time (at least a month). I was wondering how some of you tattooers prep for guest spots, is it on the spur moment thing? Or is it something you plan ? And how can the news spread faster?

Some people I've missed out or on my wishlist for Austin, Tx:

Chad Koeplinger

Deno Jr.

Horimasa

Matt Arriola

FML

Jinx Proof Tattoo in Washington , DC is having quite a few well known guest artists coming to work in the next 6 months. Jason Goldberg from Olde City in Philly, "osti" Ralf Ostermöller from germany, Richard Stell in august or early september, Tim Lehi from blackheart in september, and Scott Sylvia also from Blackheart by October. i know i'm forgetting someone but its gonna be a good year for sure.

This is for sure something we would love to see more tattooers, customers, and tattoo shops take advantage of in the forums area as Alanna pointed out (I added the backlinks). It is one of the many features that was an initial force for starting LST. So many good tattooers travel around guest spotting!!! IT IS FREE so have at it please!!

Speaking of- Im considering booking some time with Deno on his DC stop... gonna call the shop tomorrow to see if he has time open. Can anyone shed some light on pronunciation?

Deno like Dino

Deno like Den-o

I dont want to look like a bigger ass than normal when I call...

I'm going to take a guess at it being like "den-o"- if it was like "dino", it'd be spelled either "dino", "deano" or maybe "deeno".

Then again, my friend Johnny used to spell his name to sound like "jone-y", so you might just want to see if you have the balls to get away with saying "D", haha!

By the way, s33k, I strongly advise you take a look at your local studios' blogs and Facebook pages if you haven't already. There'll be loads of news on those as to what's going on. I update a local studio's blog twice a week, and we always make sure to write a fair amount on guest spots, and many others are pretty much the same.

    • looks like a solid shop!
    • You know, while I was getting tattoed we spoke about the full sleeve, since I've started with the idea to get it done (not in a short amount of time because due work my week is full) and he just said something about the druid girl. But we haven't any conversation about it anymore so it was kinda a flash instead of something wanted.  Then here COVID-19 came and we used to stay in lockdown per 2 months and just now tattoo studios opened (like one/2months ago) and I have to find a window of time where I can contact him. So basically nothing has started yet :)      This is what actually happened with the wolf. I went him saying "I want the face of a wolf here" and he did all the rest, surprising me with that moon etc so I was kinda surprised with the final effect because it wasn't what I exceptecd but It was what I wanted without even telling him the background.  It sounds weird but I gave him "free hands" and imho the result is stunning. So basically I would find the main subject (woman) and the background which suits the wolf (forest etc.). So I wanted to research something in terms of what I have in mind. But still, I will contact him for sure as long as we both have time to spare, finding what I like the most/suit the best  
    • He's a good artist... your concepts are all in the same vein... except the dryad girl which is a different direction. They aren't anything like what he was suggesting though. These also aren't what I'd think of initially when thinking of woman portraits... they are more surreal than what people commonly ask for.  Makes me wonder if you showed them to him yet? I'd give them to the artist, tell them a few things that you like and things you don't like about them... and put down a deposit so that he can start drawing.
