    Thank you

    Now that the dust has settled and things are getting back to normalcy in mine and my family's life and the lives of the crew at Great Lakes Tattoo I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support of not only myself but the crew and ultimately Great Lakes Tattoo itself. It has been an amazing last few months and the support and acknowledgment of the shop has been overwhelming and very humbling. The shop is something that is a part of all of us who walk through its door everyday. It's shows the dedication of not only myself and crew but the behind the scenes dedication of

  4. This event will showcase Jon Reiters entire Dietzel collection which is the foundation for his two books on Amund Dietzel. If you missed the show at the Milwaukee Art Museum this is your opportunity to see it in a more up close environment. The opening night party and opening weekend will be an event to raise funds for Jons hospital bills due to some recently discovered blood clots in his brain. All proceeds from the Dietzel tattoos done that weekend will go directly to those bills. This is a chance for people to pick off the actual flash that hung in Dietzel shop in Milwaukee. We will als

  6. Wife and I are working out a contract to help a national guards man out by renting his home for 2.5 years while he's in PA school. We were planning on buying a home in a year or two but this is exciting cause its in the woods on 10achers of land and its cheap rent. More time to figure out what I want to buy and enjoy living in the vermont woods for a few years. I need a few years of some isolation with my wife and dog after work and in weekends.

    Hi, Im New!!

    A font is a family of weights/sizes of a certain typeface that is utilized with desktop publishing software, in either a Windows, Macintosh, or Linux environment (previously this was all set by hand in a letterpress environment). Calligraphy, and more correctly applied to your situation, is defined as the art of writing. My day job is graphic design, and I don't want any of that in my tattoo world. DROPPIN' KNOWLEDGE LIKE MADBALL sSSSonnnn!

    Well, El Monga's coming back to Philly next month, and despite the fact that I got tattooed by him last month, and again back in May, I booked a spot with him. What am I going to do, NOT get tattooed by him? Not sure exactly what I'm going to get, but I threw a bunch of ideas at him in an email. We'll see what sticks.

  15. Got this dagger from Lal Hardy at New Wave Tattoo in Muswell Hill, London. Lal has been tattooing for over 30 years and is as absolute diamond. Had such a great morning there as well. The dagger goes through a tattoo from Alex Binnie, which is his version of the first tattoo I had done over 40 years ago.

    I really wanted to book with Deno for his stint at King's Ave at the end of the month but didn't/don't have the money. I'm so bummed out! Hopefully I'll be able to book something with Ron Wells in the next couple of months!

    Full Back Piece Thread

    Yesterday my wife had her 4th session on her backpiece, and the background brought it to life and we are so stoked I just had to share it with you all :-) The piece is made by Bonel from Corazon Santo in The Netherlands, which also did both of my sleeves and chest pieces :)

    Thank you

    Hi Nick. I cannot wait to come in on Friday to shade/color the half sleeve we started about a month ago. All the recommendations to see you were right on the money, and I in turn have recommended you and your shop to everyone I know. Thanks! Sent from my LG-E980 using Tapatalk 2

    I think this show is amazing, wonderful trash (and this has nothing to do with the artwork shown in it). I hope next seasons they kick it up a notch, making it about pornstars, on meth, getting tattooed, in prison.

    Oh, seem to have a good few of more of Stella Grassman as tattooed by Deafy Grassman than I thought. Artoria (Anne Gibbons) by Charles "red" Gibbons too. - - - Updated - - - Oh, crikey, Lady Viola by Frank Graf! How could I forget her, she's utterly lovely. A good few of her, this is the best but not enough leg leg - note that those little 'flowers' on her thigh are actually portraits. Charlie Chaplin in clearest in the photo.

    What a great thread! Can't believe I've only just found it! Some of the unnamed tattooed ladies I can help with, I think. The others I have to go back for - didn't show the photos in my multi-quote attempt... So much fascinating stuff - can't possibly thank everyone individually - this post shall be way to long as it is :o But, yes. She's one of the few I've not been able to track down a name for. The whole look and feel of the photo suggests she might be a private individual rather than a circus girl - the setting looks rather aristocratic to me. No other photos of her to be found eithe

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Just got a cover-up from Trevor Taylor at Liberty in Seattle. I had one laser removal session done at Fade Fast in Dallas and, though I've got nothing but good things to say about Fade Fast, decided I wasn't patient enough to see it though. Trevor was great and I'm very pleased with the result. It won't be my last from him. The photo was borrowed from Trevor's Instragram.

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    I went to Chicago (first time!) for a very short work trip. However, I did manage to squeeze in an appointment with Nick Colella: He wedged my wife's name into a little spot below my left knee ditch and right under a girl head I got that looks just like her. I didn't tell her I was going to do it; when I got home last night, I said, "My leg hurts. Can you look at it for me?" Fortunately, she loves it as much as I do. Nick was awesome. He did the whole thing in about 15 minutes, then I hung out and soaked in his beautiful shop for a while. Nick, Erik, Frank, and Matt were all super gracious

I live in melbourne and the guy with the chad koeplinger in Rough Operators post is my good friend who I was drinking a beer with only hours ago. This piece looks amazing now that its fully coloured and complete, I'll see if I can find a photo somewhere! Small world, great thread! Here's a sizzler from El Bara, from Madrid.

    Hi, Im New!!

    Welcome. There was a poster recently who got her wrist tattooed and was concerned about the visibility of it, especially in terms of employment, so think very seriously about what it will mean to have a tattoo that is difficult to conceal. Are you in a line of work that accepts visible tattoos? Are you willing to possibly commit to a life of wearing long sleeves even in the summer if people don't accept your tattoos? I'm not saying don't do it, but just tobe aware of how people might react to it. Some nice script could be nice, but you could also look into images that convey a similar meanin

  50. Back of the knee was pretty hard for me. I had trouble walking stairs and it would itch badly. I eventually had to have the whole thing redone because it healed so uneven. I think it was partially due to my new jeans being to stiff and full of nasty chemicals, but also just from the spot being really difficult to heal.
