  2. Hi Mel, I'm just wondering where you got the horse Tattoo in your profile picture? My family lives in Newcastle and I visit there a few times a year, I love the piece!

  3. Hey dude, just saw your message from two weeks ago.

    I don't really go on this site anymore, to be honest. It's still a great site, I just don't have the time for this kind of thing anymore, haha. It sucks about your email address though, if you send me a message on here though I'll still get it to my email address so I don't have to comment on your wall two weeks too late, haha. xxx

  4. mel,

    havnt seen you around. My email got hacked but wanted to check in hope all is well

    If you shoot that, you've fucked over any chance of being The Penguin on Halloween.

    Haha, that isn't even the craziest thing he's done, it was just all I could find on the Internet! If we all ever end up at the same convention, I'll bring this book along and we'll have some crazy fucking trip, haha. I actually took this book from my grandfather's book case when he died- I was only 7. I don't even want to think about what weird books he had that I wasn't allowed to have, haha.

    What the hell is going on in this? You could look at it for hours. Anyway, enough of me being a geek, you can get back to posting silly pictures now. :)

    Random Picture Thread

    This thread is my favourite thing ever. Hey have you guys ever seen the artist who did the Judas Priest cover up there, Patrick Woodroffe? His stuff is great, but it's so weird. I have one of his books, and I never feel the need to do drugs, since looking through that seems to do the job. Wait there, I'll find some pictures...

    name lettering

    Hey Peter- I think the best thing you could do is to visit a good studio and let the know what you want- they can do the rest. A lot of people think they have to come up with how the tattoo will look, and that's not really true, so don't worry about not knowing how to create anything! They'll know what works, and what looks good. As for artists in Jersey (NJ, right?), I think everyone else will have a better grasp for who's the best for this, since a lot of people live closer. I like Scott Terry's work, though.

    Apprenticeship vs. Schools vs. Self-Taught

    Yeah, I have to agree with Ursula here- I know cake makers who are up at 4.30AM every morning!

    Curly mentioned in UK's metro newspaper

    I don't know if you guys in America are familiar with the Daily Mail, but that was the link I was shown- I was pretty surprised to see their coverage of this is quite pleasant as well! Usually they're saying we're all scumbags, haha! :)
  13. Y'know, I couldn't agree more with this. I think if someone comes into a studio with the worst idea possible, and someone tattoos it anyway, without at the very least trying to make it better or showing them how it should be done, then I don't think I'd think that highly of the tattooer. Those around my area who would do that are the ones that need the money. I'm not saying Shannon is like this, by the way, just speaking generally.

    Not a band, but... BATMAN LIVE. SATURDAY. IT'S HAPPENING. I'm so excited you'd think I was 12.

    Three blondes in a Bentley...(insert joke here)

    Seriously, if I ever get a car, I'm getting the shittest car I can justify having- and this is why. If some idiot crashed into me and I had an expensive car like that, I'd cry my eyes out!
