  1. day two of healing my right kneecap, left was a breeze! but I'm dying on this one. threw my back out limping afterwards. I am a right mess at work right now...ha.
  2. I cannot stand when people ask me why. about every single tattoo I have. No there is no sob story behind the rose on my knee, roses just look cool on the knee. It is really the only question I just cant answer anymore. It bugs me. I do try and explain that not everyone needs this contrived emotional meaning to get a tattoo, that getting the tattoo is the meaningful part. Getting a tattoo is the experience I wanted to capture. A good tattoo should be able to stand alone. But of course if you don't have a love for tattoos and the process then you will never understand that. Also
  3. oh yipee. well ... next I may go for a wild boar head on the knee. and perhaps a giant stag beetle on my chest. my back I am still back and forth between a giant bear fighting a snake or a hindu decorated cow. ........ i like animals.
  4. yea man, if you want the nice detailed thin line artwork you've been posting, go for it, and dont worry if every line will be perfect? itll look cool if its what you and the artist want. have faith in thee artiste.
  5. so, try this. take a really thin pen or pencil and draw a perfectly straight line on a piece of paper free handed. then, take a nice thick sharpie (marker) and do the same thing. im not saying tattoo artists cant tattoo a straight line with a single needle, im just saying its harder and and harder to hide. especially when were talking about wrapping it, making it work with your body and skin/movement. same thing for the longevity as the words though, the slightly thicker line will last longer, the thinner one might fade and blur out in spots destroying the look of the line, because
  6. youd be suprised how quickly small lettering becomes small unreadable scribbles. i speak from experience.
  7. i feel the same way, but I realized I have to just be upfront about it now, because worrying if i took out enough cash at the atm beforehand is just unnecessary stress before a tattoo appointment, fucking with my head game. I also only get tattooed by artists who are open to talking about every aspect of the tattoo process, including money. I ask them what range to expect for a first session, so I can bring the right amount of cash, (and then some) and they don't seem to mind. I wouldn't ever bug them about giving me a specific price for a session or a piece beforehand though. I have a
  8. hey! I have been a couch surfer for years now and have used it to travel extensively when I was an airline employee, and used to host many events. Hopefully I can do some more traveling, and not that all my travels will be tattoo related, this is a great idea. im in school now so Im pretty stationary but I will be on the move again soon!
  9. realism while still using enough black = <3
  10. I actually simplified my wardrobe completely after starting to get more coverage. Mostly black, and all basics. Letting my tattoos shine haha. Also started dressing more comfortable as I am healing most of the time anyway. It is interesting how this happens. I am always on the lookout for soft flowy pants and long sleeve anythings now that its getting warmer.
  11. working in the sign business I just always want nice bold readable words everywhere. EVERYWHERE. pictures too of course. but keep those words bold.
  12. My next inner bicep appointment in a few weeks I am giving it a go. Im heading right out to a camping trip, and this seems like the best way to go. It may be a bit uncomfortable hitting my armpit but we shall see.
  13. Inner bicep almost hitting my armpit on day 2. I am a walking teapot. Or I just look pissed off with my hand at my waist all day. Swollen is an understatement.
  14. I love tattoos. I love all styles. I'm almost finished with a full color "new school-ish" sleeve, and then moving on to a full traditional black and gray back piece, as well as many other traditional bold pieces. I may even go Japanese on my thigh/leg. You can have love for it all, if you do enough research. I don't think I will keep on with too much newer solid color stuff, after learning more about longevity and realizing how much I too love the bold imagery. But I dig my sleeve and its definitely a huge part of my personality. I needed that damn sleeve. my childhood self needed
