    'Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye'- Shakespeare 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.'- Miss Piggy 'Long, short, thin, heavy, 12 fingers, 3 legs, rough or smooth, I shall drink it all and belch what I don't desire till my lifes experience end.'- Hawk BigAl my friend, we here on the LST are the people bred out of the uncommon perception of what is beauty and beautify ourselves and others in some cases to balance any of our personal short comings.

    Dumb Hipster Tattoos

    I'd be really interested to see what would happen if you could get a few people to agree to getting some chromed-out nonsense tattooed on them by some "names" and see how long it would take for everyone to copy it, and start talking about how 90s chrome is the fucking TRUTH. ..I, however, do not volunteer to receive these tattoos.

    I'm sure this has already been mentioned in the thread but HOLY SHIT i CANNOT WAIT for the monacled bowler hatted curly-mustachioed Tea-Drinking manhead tattoo to go away. I hope every dude or girl that gets one of those feels 10 time stupider in 10 years than anyone sporting desert chrome does now! What would possibly compel someone to get that shit tattooed on them I will never know. "Check out my tattoo of an imaginary, uptight, fey, rich guy who may, or may not have been an extra in the film Wild Wild West." ugh. WORST.

  10. @cfgsteak, I never carry cash but I used to enjoy making a trip to the bank on the way to the bike shop. It was part of the ritual. I guess it will be my tattoo ritual too. Another good reason to use cash is wife doesnt have to know EXACTLY how much you spent at the tattoo shop.

  12. we used to take credit and debit and around 4 or 5 years ago the printer crapped out and they said they could send us another one for $400...you would think that they would want to not try and bend us over on replacing a printer since they were taking nice chunks of money on every transaction. ever since, cash only. honestly i like it better because its just one more way to avoid supporting large banks and credit lenders that are making money on our hard earned dollars.

    I'm having a great deal of difficulty resisting going to a shop today, picking a piece of flash off the wall and having it done. Hmmm.

    Yea....the last tour was amazing as well. New album soon too! I first got into them around when soundtracks for the blind came out so I NEVER got to see them untill last year. Needless to say it was an important day. Too bad my bunny boy isnt done so well and I smashed it while it was healing so the face is a bit rubbed off....But i love it anyway.

  17. Timothy treadwell had some strange views on conservation. It was hard to tell wither he was feeling those from the heart, or if they were driven my total schizophrenia. He created some unreal views of wildlife which no one has or will ever do again, but at the same time broke the boundary between showing and telling. Every time he touched a bear it drove me crazy, and all I could think was "Well, I know how this is going to end." Homeboy spend 10 seasons in the Alaskan wild filming and living with the largest land mammals on the North American Continent. I dont think there is anything h

    the glamorous life

    I worked for a guy who claimed to have more than one female customer start masturbating while getting tattooed.. This is something I can't really understand.. I mean I guess if you are a exhibitionist and a bit masochistic then maybe? Same guy also told me a few tales about ladies getting totally naked to get their lower back tattooed, or ladies getting totally topless to get a small shoulder or chest tattoo.. Unfortunately I think on most occasions they're the ladies you don't wanna see naked who like to get naked.... I actually remember hiding in the back of the shop on a couple occasions an

    I'd much rather tattoo the crazies, fatties, etc. and be able talk about killing zombies than inking the over tanned uptown julie browns exhibiting their zanax prescription. Case in point; I like to derail some people when they are the first timer questioning me to be serious about how much pain is involved minutes before I start, it don't matter what I reply with as they will soon know so sometimes I just say "I compare it to the first time ya have anal sex, that shid hurts!" and it totally derails them and they generally don't reply or the replies will vary between males and females to s

    This tattoo was done in September of 2009, and I bet by September of 2010 it was a black panther crawling out of a very dark red rose.

    Full Back Piece Thread

    I'm getting to know names around here, but awesome back pieces started by the actual members who posted their own work. Asradin, that looks like a great start. This thread makes me want to get started on a back piece immediately. Too bad that's not going to happen within the next 2 years. I do want something full back, and it'll probably be Kanga Yaksha Myo-o. He is the god protecting the North. 3 Faces, 6 arms, you know... the norm, haha. How can there be a full back piece thread that has gone 11 pages without a single mention of Hiroshige?!? Or did I miss that page? Anyhow, these

  30. thats real nice of you to say tim, thank you. the shop i worked at before Frith st was owned by a non tattooer and at the time, i left with a real sour taste in my mouth. i wasnt sure about dante since i didnt know him but all i heard was good things from well respected tattooers and really, i was stoked to work at frith st, even for the one day a week i was started on. immediately i realised that this man knew and cared about tattooing more than i did then and probably even now. He has been part of the tattooing 'scene' for many years now and well respected pillars of the scene call him frie

  35. thanks for the tip Like most tattooers, I think Horiyoshi tattoos who he wants, and doesn't tattoo anyone he doesn't want to tattoo. I also know that, as of Taku's last trip to Japan, Horiyoshi was still doing some color by hand, at his discretion. I've spent a good amount of time with him, and it's my opinion that when he decides to do his final tattoo, it'll be done partially by hand. I think it's part of his soul, and he'll never give it up totally. again, just my opinions, what do I know?

  36. If the original post was asking for info about the politics of the Japanese tattoo world in itself (their drama within their own tattoo culture, tattoo families etc), I apologize in advance for this long post about having tattoos in Japan. I've spent a lot of time in Japan, most of it centered around tattoo-related things. I've tattooed there a good amount, as have many of my friends. I work with a japanese tattooer who specializes in their traditional style of tattooing, working with machine and by hand. Both of us have been tattooed by Horiyoshi 3 extensively, by hand in Yokohama, which
