    Kids Names Tattoo

    I'm with pretty much with @Graeme on this too. I'd never planned to have any reference to my children in a tattoo, wasn't something that even occurred to me, but as it happens I ended up with one anyway. Amongst the reference I took in before we started my arm was a copy some old botanical type drawings of eggs and nests, they weren't meant to refer to anything in particular - I just like the images. So, a few sessions in he pulled out a stencil he'd drawn up of a nest with 2 eggs in, 'you have got two children, haven't you?' he says... Well, if he'd not said that I'd probably n

  6. Hi! Been lurking for a while and thought I should make an account! Im a 19 year old flash painter from New Brunswick, Canada. Starting painting in this style about a year ago when I saw guys like James Mckenna do crazy stuff. I thought "This is EXACTLY what Im looking for in art making". Its colourful, creative, bold, dark, clean, permanent and sinister. Currently looking for an apprenticeship, in the mean time Im painting every day. Have 5 tattoos so far, hoping to get more very soon. Here's my instagram if you want to flip through that: https://instagram.com/a_beukeveld/ Thanks for look

    @Rory@ So the place opens at 12, but if you want to make sure in with Franz, go at least an hour early. Let me know if you come through town - I'm happy to go down and get you a spot in line - of course I'd have to get a tattoo myself, so that could work out nicely.

    New, very new

    @rufio I would suggest turning off your computer and looking at real tattoos instead. You said you're willing to travel, so I'd recommend going to a good convention and looking at tattoos there. Paris is this weekend, so it's probably too late for you to hop on a train and go to that one, but London is coming up in the fall, I believe in September or October. These are both world-class conventions and if you go you'll be able to see some of the best tattooing in the world in person. I know that when I started getting tattooed, seeing tattoos in person was really critical in helping me to u

  11. My son is nearly 12, my daughter nearly 10. My daughter likes looking at my tattoos but says it won't be for her. She's funny though, she sees other people with tattoos and frequently and quietly comments, "dad, you have way more tattoos than him" My son is always planning his suit which comprises of dragons, snakes, ships and skulls. They can never understand why people have to stare so intently when we're out when I'm rocking singlet and shorts. It's nice to know they're developing a non judgmental attitude towards people who "appear" different.

    Definitely an awesome movie. Kinda wish I would've seen this one in Imax, but it was still a great theater experience. The score was so perfect for it too.

    @Mark Bee or anyone else who knows... How early does the line form for the Okey Dokey walk-in day on Sundays? Might be in Toronto this summer. Was curious how much of a madhouse it is. If you get there are 1130 or so is there already a queue?

    I have a 9 month old. From time to time he tries to pick up a tattoo that he sees on me - a maple leaf off my arm etc. But in general he appears to not notice them yet. It'll be interesting to see whether he considers tattoos square because his mum and dad have plenty of them. I'm curious.

    Thanks! Mostly funny dead English people. I don't want read to more of this, though, but when faced with an overwhelming number of choices that's what I tend to revert to. Sometimes I read mysteries or nature writing. For my job there's a pressure to keep up with new mainstreamish literary fiction, which it's possible to begin to resent. Trying to say that without sounding dismissive - oy... If I may ask, what's your profession that involves reading lots of weird fic and horror? Because that sounds pretty cool.

    Kids Names Tattoo

    I have my kid's names, but I didn't dwell on any meaning or specific reference to their personality or interests. I got my son's name before we even knew we wanted another kid. I was down in Austin visiting a friend and went to Diablo Rojo and picked a sacred heart off the wall. Leo changed it a bit based on things we talked about and threw "Ethan" in the banner. Really just because I like catholic imagery. And then when my daughter was about 4 years old she started giving me crap about having Ethan and not Ruby, so when Kore Flatmo was drawing up my cover up, I asked him if he could just toss

  40. My oldest is six and she doesn't even see mine or my wife's tattoos. It's like they aren't even there. My two year old, on the other hand, is checking out what I have for tattoos whenever he has the chance. I wouldn't be surprised if my daughter never got a tattoo, and my son came home with a hand poked anarchy symbol at 13. Haha.

    I need some help!

    So my wife and I moved from Las Vegas to a small town Manteca CA to be near her folks. So we opened a shop thinking we would struggle for a while, well we where wrong. I am overwhelmed with the response of this town. I really could use some help. I need someone full time who is serious and makes good tattoos and also wants to be part of the family. Most tattooers in this area are not very good or work from home. So if your looking for a clean shop normal split with most supplies supplied for you let me know. No drug addicts blah blah you know the rest. Check us out on line Onesixteentattoo.co

  42. Nguzunguzu. I did my PhD dissertation on the paleoclimate and oceanography of the Solomon Islands. They are smack dab in the West Pacific Warm Pool, one of the "heat engines" of the Earth's climate. They also sit under the largest perennial rainfall feature on earth, the South Pacific Convergence Zone. I spent a lot of time out there caving, sampling fossil corals, and hanging out in villages listening to villagers and elders tell amazing stories of the past, and depressing stories of the present; logging and overfishing are becoming epidemic.

    @xcom very cool @mclovinfg4 - I'll throw myself under the bus, if I kept getting tattoos at 18 I'm sure I'd have some cannibal corpse/ slipknot/ nine inch nails crap on me. I cringe when I think back at my great ideas for ink from ages 18 - 22. Thank god I was perpetually broke EDIT: can't forget chuck pahlaniuk quotes either.... oh god I was a mess

  49. +1 to advice to keep it simple. However, this effect can be killer in the right hands. Check out some of James McKenna's stuff. Some of his stuff pushes things a bit too far for my tastes, but there are some really amazing ideas in there too: https://instagram.com/j__mckenna/ https://instagram.com/p/zYrrrqQ2sH/?modal=true https://instagram.com/p/wilI64w2vd/?modal=true https://instagram.com/p/j9HGFKw2sI/?modal=true
