    Favorite Tattoo of 2011

    A sharks thread'd be cool.... This is only a small one, from Chad Koeplinger, but it's one of my favourite animal head tattoos ever. If I were going to tattoo my hands .... (As it is I'd love something in this vein for my feet next year) There's a lot of larger scale work I've seen that is amazing in a probably more obvious way, but this is the one that popped into my head when I read this thread.

    I was talking to a friend of mine about this over Christmas so I was glad to see it as a new thread here. My prediction is much like Stewart's. I think that there will be a lot of 60's, 70's, and early eighties stuff. Greg Irons, Jack Rudy, and Mike Malone. Especially Malone. He has so much great flash out there, and it is well drawn. I think that people are getting tired of the over simplification of tattoos. The American Traditional resurgence has gotten so simplified that it is losing its visual power. Malone will be the new Higgs.

    anyone got some drawing tips?

    In my own experience, tracing is more of a hindrance because it doesn't allow you understand the use of space/shapes/composition. If you're trying to replicate designs like eagles or snakes or.. draw anything, it's worked for me to get the shapes down, and then refine it more and more. And then, Robert DeNiro said it best in Ronin: "Draw it again."

    Tattoo Myths and Misconceptions

    Red is made from fire and Blue, obviously, is made from clouds. I also been told by clients that fatty and boney parts hurt more to get tatted, or hurt less, depending. That tat guns go a "million times" a second. That Kat Von D is the most famous tattooer. Of course, there are always the stories that still persist of the ol " fox hunt" tattoo that they're buddy's uncle had. That female tattooers hurt less (especially Kat Von D). Oh ,and where can I get that skin -colored ink to tattoo over unwanted tattoos..Bill WaverLy? I'm lookin at you....

    @ChrisvK Nobody believes you when you say you don't want to be a tattooer. But like everyone else says, practice. Practice, then practice some more. Here's a golden nugget: Doodling requires you to repeat shapes with your hands. Drawing requires you to use your mind more than your hands. Good luck.

    Tattoo Myths and Misconceptions

    Hahaa! I forgot about the armband thing. In the last few years the number of people asking for hand/neck tattoos when they have (insert single digit number here) tattoos has increased to the point I've considered bringing back the 'illegal' story. Taking 20 minutes to explain to a whiny teenager why the world isn't fair, twice or more every day? Or taking 20 seconds to tell them it's illegal? Tempting, for sure. So we just say "Sorry, we don't do them" Which is more fun than you'd expect, especially as I get to say it while I'm tattooing someone else's hand/neck. @ShawnPorter Brevity is the soul of wit.

    Got my last tattoo of 2011 tonight. A Christmas present from my girlfriend by way of gift certificate to my friendly neighborhood tattoo shop. Crappy cell phone pic but the best I can get at the moment. It was done by Paul Pearson at Tried & True Tattoo, Smyrna, TN.

    Tattoo Myths and Misconceptions

    Armbands that connect are bad luck. Variation: Armbands that connect can cut off the circulation and your arm will fall off. Face/hand/neck tattoos are illegal. I always feel bad posting right after Stewart. He goes into so much detail that it makes my two sentence posts seem lazy. Perhaps by mentioning this fact it will add a little bit of 'meat' to my post and make it seem like I have more than a ten word vocabulary.

    Some of the stories and half-truths are pretty amusing and they serve a purpose to protect or obscure some things that should remain at least a little esoteric. What bugs me more than fables and tall-tales are when someone has half a useful piece of information and it swirls around in their busy little mind until they think they are a fountain of knowledge. They then spout that 'knowledge' to their friends or to people who are desperate for crumbs of information on the internet. But that's a different thing I guess. I'm not of the opinion that everything should be laid out and explained to any yahoo that comes into a shop or internet forum. So I don't want to burst too many bubbles. But... In may towns and cities in the north of England, many people believe if you get an 'X' tattooed on the sole of your foot you get it for free. Variations even extend to: If you get the bottom of your foot tattooed totally black, you get any other tattooing free, for life, from any other tattooer, in the world. As if more than 5 tattooers can agree on anything, never mind every tattooer in the world adhering to some secret code. Visitors or customers in those shops were all totally bummed out when I told them that's not true. At least not the way I work. Fucking nuts.
