  1. About a month ago, I went to the Portland Tattoo Expo where I got two large tattoos in one day. I don't know what I was thinking when I scheduled this, but it was BRUTAL. First one - was about 5 hours of work on my upper back, then the second was 3.5 hours of work, an hour (and a lot of hamburgers and french-fries) later. 5 days later, I sat for another five hours for a session on my leg... It was a terrible week and a really fuckin stupid idea. But I now have a LOT of awesome tattoos! No regrets.
  2. This is the best thread! This picture was taken a few months ago at my sister-in-law's wedding and I was immediately struck by how much I LOVE the way the tattoo looks with the flowers and the floral print dress. I would like my whole body to look like a floral dress one day -- Since taking this picture I've gotten a few more big flowery pieces and I am slowly inching toward the goal :)
  3. My friend taught me how to spit-shade yesterday :) I basically sucked at it... but it was Day 1 so I won't judge myself to harshly yet.
  4. I definitely have "My Tattoo Artist" at home, but I like to travel and get tattoos from other people as well. I enjoy collecting the different styles and meeting new artists.
  5. I've used Tegaderm for four of my more recent tattoos .... and I have a pretty dramatic love/hate relationship with it. I love that I can feel like I don't have a giant open wound on my body, and that I am not leaking ink all over my sheets at night... but I hate that it never seems to stick properly on areas of increased movement (neck, wrists, elbow ditch). The only truly successful Tegaderm experience I have had was on my thigh, where the tattoo had a lot of space around it and the Tegaderm could get a solid seal around the edges. All other locations, it started to peal up at the edges af

  8. Ivan (http://instagram.com/ivaninkaddictiontattooshop) did the flower with the eye on my wrist while I was in Verona Italy. James Clements (http://instagram.com/jamesclements_tattoo), did the rest of the work on my arm at the Portland Tattoo Convention - building off the flower that Ivan did first. Super happy with it!
  9. Thanks, that's good to hear :) Here's my instagram - Instagram
  10. Hey dude! Happy to find a familiar face so soon!
  11. I'm not a tattoo artist... I just like drawing like one. I am currently designing a deck of tarot cards - "78 Cards". Here are a few of my favorite cards so far :) The Empress The Devil Ten of Swords Five of Pentacles
  12. Hey All, I've been into tattoos for as long as I guess I could be.... I'm 29 years old, and I got my first one at 18. Style wise, I'm into traditional and neo-traditional work the most, but I also really like sacred geometry and heavy black work as well. Most of the tattoos I have fall within these categories. Perhaps more than actual tattoos, I absolutely love the drawing style of tattoos - heavy lines, bright colors, big patterns. It's great. I'm an architect, and have been for about 8 years. Though, about six months ago I decided to start working toward acquiring a tattoo apprenticeship
  13. I love this thread... it's super interesting to see what kind of work holds the best.
  14. Has anyone purchased the Spider Murphy's tattoo flash book? First or Second edition? Thoughts?
