  1. I don't think you're entirely right. You don't know me yet you judge me about rushing into a tattoo because I want to be part of the community. I don't know where you are pulling that from. There are other things to factor in that you have conveniently left out due to your own perspective. It's cool you saved up for a year to get a couple roses from an artist you think is the best. I personally plan big pieces, the last tattoo I got was a half sleeve that took 13 hours, two and a half years ago in the UK. Since then I have also been saving. I fully intend to to travel to get work from artists
  2. No offense taken to any of yours or other people's posts. You have one of the nicest collections of tattoos I've seen and I'm pretty envious. Your back in progress is turning out to be one of my favourites ever. I envy those who have the time and money to travel to world class people for their tattoos. I unfortunately am not currently in the position to do so myself. I can understand how you feel, I would be pretty bummed if someone copied a tattoo that was on me. But I see it slightly differently. HK doesnt have any artists that do the neo traditional style, and I could see from his tattoos t
  3. I know some people on this forum don't really dig this guy, but Gen did a guest spot here in Hong Kong and I got my lower leg done. That ditch is something else eh? Taken from his instagram coz I couldn't get any decent shots.
  4. you have the best tattoos. i cry every time you post an update from how good this effing thing is! kidding! but not really...i am so jealous.
  5. not part of the tattoo age series, but still done by vice..pretty awesome video about horiyoshi III(turn subtitles on at the bottom):
  6. thanks for the welcome, guys! love your blog! @hogg i live on the island side, North Point but i'm always over on the kowloon side. How long were you here for?
  7. Hi guys, i signed up a while ago but usually tend to shy away from introduction threads on forums preferring just to lurk.. Anyway, my name is Mike, i'm from Hong Kong. Tattoo enthusiast, i currently have a half sleeve from beijing artist Yang Zhuo (yztattoo). looking to start my lower leg when money and time allows. My good friends Rich Phipson and Ross Turpin own and operate Star Crossed Tattoo here in Hong Kong, and they're kind enough to have me always hanging around drawing and shooting the shit. please check out their stuff at ARTISTS | Star Crossed Tattoo and come hang out and say
  8. wow. i thought you had linked to the wrong website for a second. i'm not trying to be mean, but is he going through some sort of mid-life crisis?? i had some lasering done at woodys over a two year span, my last session being about a year and a half ago now..and he is completely unrecognizable to how he was just a couple years ago. used to have a pretty short clean cut hairstyle, glasses..looked kind of like a dork but when i spoke to him he didn't seem to have an ego, and everyone else at the shop was super friendly. seems like both him and his wife have updated their profiles on that website
  9. i bet you're stoked. i'm sure ching is gonna do an awesome job. have you seen the pics east tattoo just uploaded to facebook of the front piece he's currently working on? it looks amazing.
  10. hmm i'm in two minds about this. on one hand, i think that tattoo looks awesome and hearing you say that you wanna "put in it's place an eagle or something, anything really" makes me a little sad inside. the "anything really" kinda thought process when it comes to covering up something you're already not happy with just spells disaster to me. on the other hand, i understand being totally unhappy with a tattoo. and a first tattoo. 3 years ago i got an outline of a half sleeve done by someone with a good reputation and who i had researched thoroughly(looked through portfolios for close to 2 yea
  11. unfortunately, i think there are only a couple decent tattooists in hong kong right now, and no one i could wholeheartedly recommend that does good traditional work. your best bet is one of the new owners of star crossed tattoo @ Star Crossed Entrance for the style you're after. my favourite artist tattooing in hong kong right now has got to be Electric Pick, ELECTRIC PLOG . Leon @ leon is doing some pretty interesting things too, but both of those guys are doing styles completely different to what you've asked for.
