    cruel, but funny

    I have to admit I'm now really curious to join... I just don't know how much juggalove reaches Australia... mind you, that does make the trolling possibilities endless... I mean who doesn't like to "chill wit da homiez'. This is gold!! I really should be doing Uni work but, I just can't look away...

    Dan, I need to know - how far has this experiment gone? What details of these 'juggellettes' can you/wish to divulge?

    This thread + now knowing that there is a site/s dedicated to Juggalove has made my week. Dan I salute you.

  10. The first is easily one of my favorites also, I think its the eyes... although everything about it is perfect Jade, me thinks you and the wifey may have to make a trip to The Dam! ;)
  11. For myself personally, the lower arms have always been a breeze no matter what. Its as if I almost glide into the studio looking forward to those sittings! Outer arm and top of my shoulder where also relatively easy... Someone once told me that the elbow was really really painful (just incase - really), and so before we started the session that would hit that area I asked my mate who was tattooing me what he thought. He said "it doesn't hurt... it just feels wrong". So an hour or so into it, he's moved my arm into position and I knew what was coming, or at least thought I did... I looked up at him, didn't need to say a word (the weird look on my face would have said much more than words could have) he looked at me and just said "told you". It didn't hurt, it just felt wrong... Oh and my calf was a breeze, BUT the friend who did that piece has one of the lightest touches I've ever come across
  12. Lina Stigsson from Admiraal Tattoo Amsterdam does gorgeous work

    Thanks people! @ Gouge - Cheers! Very aware of Trevors' work, the guy is crazy good and its a goal to get something from him sooner rather than later @ Lochlan - thanks mate and cheers for what you do for the forum! @ Bigjoe - Brisbane is about 2 1/2 hours by plane which isn't that far, but it doesn't make it easier either haha. I have a 3/4 sleeve done by my homie Stooks while he was @ Westside Tattoo in Brisbane (Amazing shop!). Doing Stuff here is a link to said sleeve and his Tumblr. I've also had work done by my good friend Luke Muller @ True Love Tattoo (Brisbane - Also amazing) and have just started my other sleeve with Horinao @ The Cat Claw Tattoo-z in Kyoto. Will be back there end of August and I am itching to say the least! haha

    Hi everyone, I'm Micheal from Brisbane, Australia. Came across the forum today, did some lurking, read some great threads and thought "this is the place for me". I'm a collector of mostly Japanese style work, but still have a party leg for everything/anything else that may come up ;) Cheers to the moderators and crew who put this forum together and I look forward to all the shits and giggles to come!
