  7. I'm going to start an OV thread because I'm way too lazy to mention things in specific threads. Sooo. Today I posted a digitized version of a huge interview that Jonathan Shaw did with Col. William Todd in ITA 1/1 in 1992. Mr. Shaw gave me permission to digitize all the interviews that he did for ITA- takes forever (OCR for the win) but TOTALLY worth it. Here's the first one: Jonathan Shaw Interviews: Col. William L. Todd « Occult Vibrations SO MUCH good stuff in this interview.

    My Laser Chronicles....

    I just had my wife take an updated picture of my back, here's a before picture... and how it looks now, this is 2 months after 3 sessions on the black and one session on the grey (and a week in the Maui sun :D ) The tattooer doing the cover up said 2 more sessions and at least 4 months heal time should be enough to start the cover up. I'm getting another treatment in 2 weeks...

  14. Barnett - your Dad's tattoo was done by Bert Vallar at 404 Argyle street, Glasgow, Scotland. Bert was the son of Prince Vallar who tattooed in Glasgow from 1911 until his death in 1949. Bert served his apprenticeship under his father and also ran the shop until around 1964. He was world famous - long before the internet, TV or and print exposure - and was revered for his fine line single-needle and freehand style. I have a picture of the exact same tattoo that was also done by Bert around the same time. Prince Vallar was a society tattooist who modeled himself on the great tattooists of

  15. @eisen777 That is a killer tattoo! Congrats! @jade1955 Wow! I can't wait to see that finished! Nice Job @Stewart Robson @distortion2 Go to a quality tattooer that you want work from, and have them draw it up. It's generally a faux pas to ask tattooers to draw you something on the internet. (let's see how many mentions I can make in one post)

  19. Hey Kev , Giving your diet more consideration a hard training person like yourself needs a more substantial breakfast . I know it kinda sounds old-fashioned but you need to at least have your eggs in the morning (most guys I know would also have a bowl of oats also ) . Supplements can never replace food , one of the very best pros said " If I only have 20 dollars in my wallet and its a choice between supplements or steak , steak wins " . More than one sponsored athlete sold his endorsed products for food also I think you need more carbs pre-training . Back to the issue of breakfast I hav

  23. Something I've noticed from working with Robert is you can't photograph a Robert Ryan tattoo. It just doesn't work. I'll see tattoos he does at the shop, (like Shawn's for instance or Greg's front torso piece), and in person they'll put you on your ass. but i'll see a photo of it he puts up on instagram on my way home and i'm taken aback by how little of the power can be contained in the picture. His tattoos really have to be seen in person to be appreciated. and like T.D. says "Any Imperfections only add to it's beauty"

    So... they're still casting "human canvases" for season two. I just saw a solicitation asking for people willing to get "hand, face, head" tattoos, as well as women willing to get pubic area tattoos. I weep.

    Beer Thread

    @jade1955 i normaly take them out of the holder but that is because i'm kind of a retard when it comes to motor-skills (is that an english word?:P) and at the pub i frequent you have to give your left show as a guarantee if you drink the beer out of a glass like that since theyre apparently expensive and they dont have many of them. I like my shoe so i don't want to break a glass. The beer is delicious thou, just had a few. I love my pub. It has no bar seats, instead it has swings hanging from the ceiling. Genius.

  35. The world needs more people like YOU... That do your footwork, and headwork, then make a good decision, and follow thru with it... The WORLD needs more Tattoo Admiration from "Professional Collectors"... People that have impeccable taste in tattoos, and tattoo art in general, that love it soo much to leave it the fuck alone, and just get tattooed, because they respect it enough to let it be...

  36. I'm going to hop on my soap box for a second and give everyone a little rant: Who cares? Really? When I first got into this I looked at it like a business mostly... Capitlaism, blah, blah, blah.... Fuck that noise now. Over 12 years now, I look at it like this, as my husband always said even when I first came into his shop... "You never really see rats jumping on a sinking ship... Why in the Fuck would any smart and skilled person want to do this for a living? It's not easy, it's not cool, and it's not a life easily lived, why?" BUT, in this case, yeah... It's much too cool, to not WANT

    Why?

    'in some respect the commodification of this practices (tattoo) and their claims to be 'art' require as to treat them as no different then any other form of personal consumption in the West. In the words of one clear-sighted enthusiast, 'The guy with 10,000$ worth of tattoos is no different then the guy in an Italian designer suit wearing a Rolex.' Ed Hardy 1.

    Why?

    It doesn't bother me a bit. 1 It just makes my tattoos look that much better. 2 If you have to justify a tattoo by telling how little you paid then it's probably a shitty tattoo. 3"You'll appreciate the quality long after you've forgotten what you paid."

  39. I've said it before, and i'll say it again - you can't go wrong with a "Wu-Tang Buffalo with laser beam eyes". Here's one that was prepared earlier (I have no idea who did this originally, I came across it awhile ago in all its awesomeness)

    Cover up ?

    So one of my Brothers was getting divorced, and as part of the settlement, he had to pay his ex $200 to get his name, which she had tattooed on her shoulderblade, covered up. No big deal. He gave her the money, they got divorced, all is well. A few months later, we see her at a party, and she asks do we want to see the cover-up? Sure! Instead of covering his name, she had gotten a tattoo of a dog with it's leg lifted alongside it, pissing over it. One of the best tats I've ever seen!

  47. That bear tattoo just makes me think, "Ms Rad by name, Ms Rad by nature", haha. Here's a new one from me! This was done just yesterday, so my arm is pretty swollen. It's by Thomas Morgan, who is just finishing a guest spot in Inkslingers in Newcastle. I think he told me he'll be in Paris next, so if you live near there, I'd recommend getting some work from him! Oh yeah, and I kind of thought this was obvious (I'm sure it will be to you guys), but since a couple of friends have asked me- the gypsy head isn't from yesterday- Ian Parkin did that, and it looks FAR better when my arm isn't at a f
