  4. In the nearly 20 years I've been going to, hanging out in and generally being around tattoo shops and artists, I've never heard a patron come in and ask what kind of machine the artist is using. In my profession, I answer it almost daily. Right behind how much does it hurt? and what is this going to cost me? one of the most frequently asked questions I get asked is what machine I use to treat people. This is mildly important and yet, people really stress about it. Why it's important? There are China-made machines available on eBay for a few thousand dollars, these are untested, general

  5. Haha, nice one. My leg, wallet and team all took a bit of a battering this weekend. It was a real pleasure meeting you as well, Gareth. The tattoo from Jack took the best part of 5 hours. I watched for a big part of that. It was amazing seeing it come to life. @Jade1959 has got quite a fat arm at the moment, but I'm sure she will post a picture when it's nicely healed.

  7. No tattoos for me this year (not for the want of trying!) but i did manage to get to the convention on Sunday and have a good look around. Also had the pleasure of meeting @jade1955 who despite his choice in football team is a thoroughly nice bloke :P. Thanks for taking the time to have a chat with me, Roger, it was a real pleasure to meet you and a privilege to watch a master at work on your wife!

    Knee Tattoooo

    That moth's rad man! I just got one myself 3 weeks ago as well. It's kind of a 2 part piece because it wraps around. I don't think I posted a pic of my moth yet either so i'll include it as well lol.

  11. Did I already mention Jacob Des? His flash- which he creates in prolific volume- is always super weird and surreal. He's a really funny dude, too. I don't know what most people make of his stuff, but I think he's one of the most interesting tattooers out there.

    Hey

    Hey, just made an account earlier today and I guess I have to post an intro lol. I've only recently got my first tattoo, after having the idea of it for about 3 years. From 2008-2010 I went through Leukemia treatments, so that is why I got the Orange ribbon in this tattoo. The heads still need to be shaded, this was just after my first sitting.

    Upcoming Tattoos

    Find an artist that is good at black and grey. Tell them what you like and don't like, then give them room to be creative and give you a solid tattoo.

  15. Very much looking forward to seeing the finished article, it looked beautiful from what i could see - not that you would expect any less from a man of such talent! I can safely say i'll be spending a good amount of time with my nose in the books looking for backpiece inspiration this evening, the urge is very strong after being around all those incredible tattoos yesterday.

  18. That's a good question, and it depends on what you want out of the tattoo. Here's a picture that was posted some time ago on another thread on this forum: Getting tattoos that go together more or less like that...a sort of classic Americana look...shouldn't be too hard as long as you get tattoos that go together in broad stylistic terms. In this case that means black outlines, strong silhouettes, black shading, and bold colour. I think an advantage to getting tattooed like that is that if you want to have a representation of travel on your body, there are a lot of great tattoo shops all

  20. Hello and welcome. I'd focus more on strong, tattooable images rather than trying to cram multiple interests into one tattoo. The best way to get good tattoos is by finding a good artist--either in your area or somewhere you're willing to travel to--and talk to him or her about your ideas.

    Upcoming Tattoos

    After a little time off from getting tattooed, I've got two coming up in October. I'm starting on my chest with Tim Pausinger at The Pearl, then I'm getting some work done on my leg by Franz Stefanik at the Okey Doke. Good times ahead!

  22. I wasn't sure if I should post this or not but I think my friend wouldn't mind. My other fave interpretation following the Hardy one. Any biters that steal this idea can get the gasface. Freddy Corbin. Summer of 2000 done in the back of an RV transformed into a tat shack. Lousy photo. It happens.

  23. Over the summer, my coworkers and I attended a staff appreciation BBQ, so the cats out of the bag. No one seemed to mind though. I was surprised to find out one of my coworkers has a ton of sweet Japanese tattoos. Needless to say, we are best buds now haha

  26. I have 9 tattoos from Phil I got in the 80s. I lived around the corner from his studio in Hayward California. Actually he did my first one, and I had to go back for more! he colored my left arm and chest, but my favorites are the blackwork on my right arm. Hes a master of blackwork. I also have work from several of his protégés.

  28. It's not one or the other. That's a bogus argument. I'd rather get a GREAT tattoo AND aftercare instructions. I'm not asking anyone to hold my hand, kiss my ass or bend over on the way out. I've been to the same artist more than a dozen times. EVERY time, while he's cleaning and wrapping the tattoo, he gives me after care instructions. It's a habit. I'm not sure why you are getting so riled up about this. I'm not calling you an ass-hole for your opinion and it wouldn't hurt you to disagree without the name calling. We are offering OPINIONS, not commandments from God carved on stone tablets. Y

  29. After finishing up with Grez on Saturday I immediately booked again since his list is so long. I've got some half-baked ideas that I have to work through, but I have until July...

  30. i disagree .. the responsibility of aftercare goes solely on the client!! If you are unsure about aftercare then ask..... Maybe being your first tattoo then i guess he should explain these things but not necessarily..

  34. This weekend I learnt that 3 sessions in 2 days is a bit too much for me, I was absolutely wiped out. Regret nothing though, I got (surprise) tattooed by one of my absolute favourite artists, Dan Sinnes. I was sitting next to Eilin too - didnt realise till afterwards though, I'm not smart. Also got a piece from Chriss Dettmer, which is swollen beyond picture capabilities right now, and Jess Yen, which is wrapped in Saniderm and looks mental right now. Pictures later, I promise. Great to see Youthcrewalex too, hope you had a great weekend buddy!

    I think part of the appeal of a back piece is the required patience, discipline, and sacrifice.

  40. Thanks to @steve1461686340 for putting this dinner together, I want to apologize to the group for being so obliterated at the dinner. I very regretfully ate too many brain smashers through out the day and was just a mess by dinner time. Fortunately I got my shit together and the rest of the trip was a great time :D How fucking embarrassing, I look like a moron in those photos. Though I did get 4 hours of tattooing done on my butt cheeks and was super taxed, that's no excuse for being such a fucked up asshole so again, thanks for having me and my apologies for being such a zombie.

  41. My latest is only a few hours old. Is this the first LST-themed tattoo? If it is, I also know who got the second (only moments after me): Courtesy of Mr. @Scott Sylvia himself. PS Like this or feel the ban hammer.

  44. So only women's bodies decline after the age of 35ish? Hmmm. Guess I should stop getting tattooed, worry about what my body looks like, and leave it to the men to get all the sweet tats. Sorry, had to go there.

    First tattoo

    1974, just days after I turned 18. Skinny, long-haired rock-n-roller. In some name-unknown parlor on Chippewa Street in Buffalo, NY (which at the time was skid row = Junkies, Prostitutes, rank bars and tattoo parlors). Flash from the wall. As with the times, I don't remember much if any of the experience. Here's what's left of it:

  47. On Instagram a little while ago Doug Hardy posted a picture of a Phil Sims reaper from the 80s that he managed to get a picture of and it looked great. Same thing with these. I hope my tattoos look as good after that long. Guess this proves, yet again, the importance of getting good tattoos.

    First tattoo

    First tattoo was "RISE ABOVE" on my ankles. It was done by a Sureño who worked in the Applebee's kitchen while I was a host. Its obviously a Black Flag tattoo. I was also wearing a Black Flag shirt. I was 17 and stupid. Oh, it was in his studio apartment and he smoked the biggest fucking joint I have ever seen outside of the Pantera Videos before he started as well. I mean, if you are going to get a Black Flag tattoo... thats how it should be done.
