  1. stewart, i hear what you are saying, but believe me, i wouldnt have shared that photo without making sure proper credit is given. if there wasn't already a watermark on that photo, i most certainly would have said where it was from
  2. i really want to get a Kuniyoshi image of a Suikoden warrior pinning down a wild beast, done by someone from State of Grace. trying to decide if i should get it on my arm, thigh, rib/stomach, or back.
  3. the difference between good artists and great artists? great artists have more clients who will patiently save their money and travel far distances to get work from them, because those clients wouldnt want it any other way.
  4. if someone asks me why or what do they mean, i usually tell them i just like how they look, or i think they are beautiful, and they serve as my reminder that life is beautiful. even though my tattoos do have deeper meanings to me, i'll never tell them the truth.
  5. Totally. I seriously wish Vice/VBS could just keep this going. The first "season" isn't even over yet and I'm already hoping for a season 2
  6. Yoni Zilbur in Brooklyn does some good Chinese stuff, he specializes in Tibetan style tattoo
  7. speaking of Shige's phoenix tattoos, here's a pic (work in progress) of a friend's pheonix that Shige did on her thigh: always love the way Shige uses color. it's just beautiful
  8. love this Chris Conn girl
  9. from the website: "DVDs will be available for purchase on Sept. 20, 2011." looks like it can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com
  10. hmm i'm getting this same message "You do not have permission to access this page" whenever I try to upload images in the gallery
  11. Rose by Cris Cleen
  12. this many years later and the image still has just as much appeal, it is a classic design
  13. not exactly slang, but i was reminded over the weekend that it's pretty annoying when i'm at a party or club or somewhere where there are drunk people, and someone comes up out of nowhere and touches your tattoo and asks "omg are those real?!" while i was in the middle of a conversation with someone else.
  14. those Pryor and Sheen portraits are hilarious, and i think the traditional tattoo style they were done in is much more fitting. i dont think they would convey nearly as much humor if they were done in realistic black and grey. that's one of the things i love about the traditional aesthetic, it has the ability to add a unique dimension to all kinds of imagery. actually there is a portrait i would like to eventually get in the traditional tattoo style, but im not sure which artist to go to for that because i dont really see any artists show those kind of tattoos in their public portfolios. or maybe im just looking in the wrong places. anyone have recommendations in the SF Bay Area?
