  1. i have a theory that some of the new users are really just @Pugilist in disguise posting about endless text/no outline/watercolor tattoos just to push @Graeme 's buttons. and then he angrily scrubs the dishes and cleans the house.

    Andre is the man, that piece is UNREAL!! I had a session with Grime yesterday, Andre hung out most of the day and I FINALLY took delivery of the 2 watercolor paintings I bought from him. He's a bad ass tatooer, expect big things from that man in the future, between his own amazing style and whatever the Skull and Sword guys do to influence his style he''''s going to be killing it. If Grime wasn't doing my back, Andre would be. No question.

  3. Manatee jumping over the moon was a go-to that I pointed out any time some clueless person walks up to the counter and says "what should I get?". No takers.

  6. For what it's worth I feel no animosity towards panthers. My thought process when thusly: "What's the toughest thing I could possibly get, so everyone can see how nails I am?" "I know, A Panther" "Wait, with a fucking dagger through it" and then that turned out to be too much tough for me to handle, so there's a butterfly as well: Seriously though, it looks cool. What more reason would you like?

    Yeah, don't know why tattoos with meaning gets so much heat. Maybe I am too new. In addition to quality, I want to have some kind of connection.

    To be honest I think the whole fake-hair tattoo is super goofy, but then again I'm not the one losing hair. @hogg are you gonna start getting fake hair tats?

  11. A guy who tattoos in a local street shop was telling me about flash they have of a manatee with a big cock. Nobody has ever gotten it, kind of surprising given the neighborhood really, but you can't account for taste. I wonder if there's any relation to the manatee jumping over the moon design.

  12. I'm a devoted user of their aerosol 60 SPF - - - Updated - - - Yes he is - ask @Mark Bee about dragging me around NYC in 40C - ugh. I barely survived the summers in Japan. I grew up in the desert - give me the dry heat any day. @irezumi I lived in Japan and spent quite a bit of time in Malaysia so I can back up that Toronto is officially evil humid in the summer - not quite Louisiana but significantly evil.

  14. There's a reason we come back to dragons, panthers and the like. They're timeless, and well..just fuckin cool. Just done a quick count of 9 dragons, but not 1 panther. Thanks guys. Panthers head to be slammed back of neck next tattoo! - - - Updated - - - Fkn how cool. Just texted tattooer about slamming panther head back of neck. Locked in for next week.

    @Zillah - sorry to hear! I don't know about rabbits, but I give one of my older cats 1/4 Pepcid to help her appetite. We did that with a dog as well - maybe your vet might think this could help? Molly the cat is also losing her sense of smell, so I warm her food and she "finds" it more easily. - - - Updated - - - I know, like, RIGHT?!? I mean, seriously, I don't know why we can't express the inner meaning, like, because it's what I'm really FEELING, you know? I have the word "believe" in Comic Sans on my side in 2 inch letters. I need to be able to see it in the mirror every morning

  22. I just saw a post from Grime saying that Andre Malcolm is moving to Skull and Sword. I never heard of the guy, so I check out his Instagram... all back pieces. This one is intense. I bet it takes someone to be very strong in character to get this on their back.

    I already look too awesome as a bald man. To quote Holden Caulfield, "He was one of those bald guys that comb all their hair over from the side to cover up the baldness. I'd rather be bald than do that."

  29. Just got back from a three-day silent Buddhist meditation retreat with Noah Levine and Against the Stream in Joshua Tree. Hard to be away from @TrixieFaux and the little one, but it was beautiful and challenging and (hopefully) life-changing. There was a lot of high-quality tattooage on display -- I call them Tatuddhists -- but of course I couldn't ask anyone, "Where'd you get your work?" Noah himself is pretty much covered with work from @Scott Sylvia and I think @Juan Puente, Eddy Deutsche and some other dudes. Funny how I kind of stumbled upon ATS. 1) At a ki

    I can see the end, possibly one sitting left. As you may see in the dragons belly, my body doesn´t like the the powder blue pigment Marius used in it, so his going to blast over with the same blue color that he used in the sword.

    New guy intro

    Hi guys, I'm new here. Chris from Oakland, via SF, via NC. Not at tattooer, but an illustrator for SF Bay area skate industry(DLX) for going on thirteen years now. 40 year old punk with a four year old prince. Stoked on the site. Watched every one of the interview videos. Both enlightening and entertaining. Figured I'd chip in and join the fun, say hello and see what's up. Very interested in tattoos and the art of tattooing. I've tried, it's beyond humbling. Stoked on getting tattooed soon. Anyway... Hi.

    I was inspired to get mine right after she passed, because the awesome hospital (Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, NJ) made nice ink paw prints for me. I think it will always be my favorite tattoo.

  36. Yeah, I could see that! @irezumi made the suggestion in another thread about a guy wanting a picture of a car wreck because he survived a bad accident. And of course, his request for ideas quickly disintegrated into panthers, dragons, etc.

  37. More beer tonight, from a freebie "Comic Book Day" glass. It's Fuller's ESB. Next up I'm going to join the filking circle at the LARP convention. Love that beer, incidentally...it makes me sad when people assume Australian beer = Foster's

  40. I always saw it in 2 ways. 1- You wanted a cool knife AND an animal so jam them together. 2- The more "BS-Filled" meaning I've heard is it's signifigant of defeating or overcoming something difficult. But really just that ^^^^^. I have a Gorilla getting stabbed. It's pissed about it too. Rad as fuck.

  45. @DJDeepFried That sounds awesome. I'd love to do something like that. I spent a great deal of time (daily) doing meditation at a local Buddhist center in the city where I did my MA. It was such a gruelling and unpleasant process that I needed some way to manage the stress. Meditation was a brilliant way to work things out. I lost the habit when I moved back to Toronto, but I'm seriously thinking about finding a place here and starting up again.

  46. I love hot, humid weather. I'm in my element. I seem to get more energy the more intense the heat and humidity grow. I do my best to keep up with the high SPF, though. Maybe its because I grew up in Canada and had to make the most of our horribly short summers. Toronto is pretty good for evil heat and humidity in July and August. I can't wait!

    Have been enjoying this thread and while I have no new tattoos to show off, I do have a new cat :) Eva is a little over a year old and has been with me for a few months now. She owned the place within a couple of weeks, of course. I got her from a friend who could no longer keep her. I had lived with cats before but never had one that was my own. I had been thinking semi-seriously for a while about getting one and decided to save this little girl from an uncertain future. Aside from being cute as hell, she came with skills too. She is the queen of the tinfoil ball and actually fetches ! Not

    @Cork that blue is looking insane! Congrats. Got a call on Friday from the shop and Rodrigo had a cancellation on Sunday...so I jumped on it. This was my first true session of color since my arms, chest, and background we have only used black or red. Today was mostly red & old olive green. Wife grab a few pics when she took off the bandages...kind of beat up & bloody though. Try to get some up pics up in a few days. Mike

    Well, at least I'm not the first to say it. Good GOD, his tattoos were fugly, but I loved that magazine. Yes, I found his famewhoring annoying (he was almost like an early version of Kat in that way), but at the same time, those mags had several pieces in every single issue that made me stop and stare. The same cannot be said for many mags today, so yeah...begrudging props.
