  1. Japanese traditional sleeve ??

    Had a good session yesterday. Finished the outline and got some color in. Taking longer then expected. My artists hours do not work with my work hours. So I have to take vacation days to get work done. Oh well. Still loving it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Japanese traditional sleeve ??

    Had my 3rd session a couple days ago. It was sooooo painful. Inner arm from wrist to pit. I took only one pic and it's not that great of a pic. Doesn't really show much. I could only sit for 1.5 hours before I tapped. One more session of only 45 minutes left on the outline, then off to color/shading. I tend to sit much better, and for much longer, when it comes to shading and color. This tattoo is coming along nicely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Time for a bump to the thread. Heading back in for the forearm work Tuesday. As always, will post pics. Should have the whole sleeve outlined if I man up and get it all done Tuesday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Here are pics of the first session. Only went about 3 hours. Got a late start because of icy road. One more session of outline and then on to color and sharing. I'm very happy. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  7. I had this happen with Jeff Gogue. I lived down the street from his shop for many years. He wants free range on his work. I'm cool with that, but some are not. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  8. Should I just cover up the whole thing?

    I understand I love this forum. With that said, it is a bit slow. I have other hobbies and when I go to their respected forums, I need to read 4 pages to catch up on what was chatted about that day. Maybe tattoos just don't have that huge of a forum following. But this forum has been great. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk

    Just received this final draft with shading. Color throughout the rest. He said he might make the dragons head a tad larger. Feb 3rd cannot come fast enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Non yet. I pushed my first session back from late October to feb 3rd. With the holidays here, I could not be selfish and drop a grand on a outline for myself. But when feb 3rd arrives, appointments will be mad ever 3 weeks until done. Already took every 3rd Friday off for 6 sessions. Will add more if needed. (Sure I will) What's funny is his shop is s cash only shop. I find this crazy in 2016. I have had maybe 8 tattoo artists work on me and they all have take. My debit card/ credit card. I would think on large pieces like 20 plus hours, not many people are sitting on that type of tattoo cash. I've been saving, so I'm cool. I would rather bump the price of my tattoos up 3% and there is the credit card charge. He is an amazing artist, so people will get the cash I guess Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. THE WALL stories...

    I had a clipper done last week and it was only 3.5 hours. It boy, she was heavy handed. Out of the 16 tattoos I have, this one killed me. At one point I did a mini 2 minute tap. I told her to hold on. But then I was right back in the saddle. Have no idea why it hurt so bad other then here packing ink in my rose in the ditch. I was just getting annoyed.
