  1. I think in Hardy's "Wear Your Dreams" he mentions the design becoming a popular WW2(?) design, A little fuzzy but I remember being surprised of how old the design is.
  2. A while ago I was digging through Craig Brown's (of Historic Tattoo, Portland) instagram as I want to get something done with him hopefully soon, and stumbled upon this: https://instagram.com/p/SlJ1ZtBs7R/?taken-by=craigbrowntattoo The colors are massive and gorgeous. Another jaw-dropper, also from Historic, is this big ass wolf from Tyson Arndt: https://instagram.com/p/6k4hPTR5Bc/?taken-by=tysonarndt

    Still working on Infinite Jest, was not ready for this! Did recently pick up Ed Hardy's Wear Your Dreams at the library. I enjoyed it and was a quick enough read. The change of pace needed for fucking IJ.
  4. Kind of a related bump, but Matt is going to the Pacific Northwest? I think it's Boise...though does anyone know for sure where? I would love to get work done by him.
  5. To me, water is a crucial part of it. I'm being patient with the ROA I would want, though I've always had the idea of the water/weather/elements being a huge role. On a side note, I was recently at a tattoo ship talking about ROA references, and the gentleman said he'd check the basement to see if the Ed Hardy ROA book was there. I was sooooooo excited and turned out it was at his house. :\
  6. There's a lot of places in Portland that I wouldn't mind getting tattooed a lot. Hopefully at Atlas soon.

    Just started reading Infinite Jest. Whoaaaaa this will be a trip.
  8. Nick Schreck @ Blue Line, La Crosse, WI. The best of dudes.
  9. Hey, my recommendation would be taking the Great River Road (Highway 35) along the Mississippi to La Crosse, WI (About 3 hours or so from the cities) and go to Blue Line Tattoo. I've gotten most of my left sleeve done from Nick Schreck at Blue Line, and have nothing but great things to say about him and the shop. Facebook page here and his IG is @NickBlueLine. Also, the drive is absolutely gorgeous. If you want to make it a 5 hour trip, going to Tailor Made Tattoos in Madison would be cool. @jonbass1 is someone I wish I got stuff done by.
  10. A turtle in space with a lighthouse on its shell.
  11. Two ideas that I'm pretty set on is a Dan Higgs's Druid on my wrist, and this Amund Dietzel work as a possible chest piece: Eventually I'd like to get the brokeback skull girl (think that's what it's known as). And my deep ambition is to get a full traditional japanese leg sleeve that will go up into a backpiece. I may need a few piggy banks started for that one.
  12. Seth Ciferri's shop, Lombard Street Tattoo in (St. Johns) Portland, OR, is just down the street from Tienda Santa Cruz. Kick ASS mexican food, tucked in the back of a market store. And then just Portland in general is home of a lot of great food/drink options.

    What a proud man! The whole Shige instagram thing is awkward. It honestly seems like a language barrier made it much more volatile. And I'm also unfamiliar with Shige and Horiyoshi family relations, so who knows?
  14. I know of Invisible Radio (Do more, Troy!) and Sullen Radio (Newest one with Jack Rudy was cool), though are there any other tattoo-related podcasts? One podcast I frequent that hasn't been listed is Everything Is Stories. Typically 40min - 1hr podcasts that have a guest tell their story. Mostly focused on outcasts and outlaws, definitely worth a listen.

    I'm a huge Stephen King fan, specifically The Dark Tower series. My (in-progress) full sleeve is actually all in a way taken from the Dark Tower series or other related books. With school I've been way too slow at reading. A few chapters here and there of Beloved and Peoples History of the United States, which has been going on for about three months :\
  16. Other than Bloodborne and Inquisition I haven't bought any new games in the past few months, not sure what is good out there. Really want Witcher 3, though I have 2 and never played it yet.
  17. Better pushed back than rushed into shit. I feel that's how a lot of recent games have been...
  18. First two are by Nick Schreck at Blue Line Tattoo, La Crosse, WI. Half sleeve and forearm piece: Old shit pick, but next one is a lady head by Aron Dubois at Scape Goat Tattoo, Portland, OR. Opposite arm is a small piece by Tim Bradly (guest spot @ Blue Line, La Crosse, W): I have one more I just need to take a picture of, and I have a piece from Jef Whitehead currently healing.
  19. Nearly finished with Bloodborne. Some of these bosses almost made me break my controller multiple times.
  20. Weeks leading up to my 18th birthday (and appointment), kept telling my parents about it and they didn't believe I would go through with it. After school on my birthday I went to the shop and got the cover of Lift Your Skinny Fists... by Godspeed You! Black Emperor tattooed on my shoulder. As I got home my mom saw it in my eyes and was just in disbelief, and my dad was kind of like sad dog. Luckily I still love GY!BE, even though it was a poor tattoo choice (too be expected at 18, I guess). 3 years later when I started my half-sleeve they were both just like "fuck it," and it's been ink ev
  21. Haven't been on a message board in a long time, so here's an introduction: Name is Nick, mid-20's, grew up in Wisconsin and moved to Portland, and have a fair amount of tattoos (close to a full sleeve, and two pieces elsewhere). Really wanted a tattoo at a young age just to coincide with deviance, though starting my half sleeve I developed an deep appreciation to the history, culture, and craft of tattooing. Even wrote a few papers in college on tattooing. Eager to post on LST and learn more on tattooing (and shootin the shit). Cheers!
