  1. @Graeme Dude, The tiger... That tiger rules!
  2. Don't post very often, but with @Graeme showing progress on his badass backpiece and the overload of cool stuff here to look at the past week, thought I's show what I've been up to the past year or so. Progress on the front side of me. Working on finishing it out and tying it all together with the back. It will be a shirt soon! October 2012 - April 2015 (chest/stomach). Got Angus Young put on me by Mr. Bob Tyrrell at the Full Moon Convention in Nashville on May 8th. I'm still blown away that this is on me. It's also the easiest tattoo to heal I've ever had. P.S. It is really hard to get a good pic of this one.
  3. Got this little guy yesterday as a 49th birthday/Friday the 13th/30th anniversary of my first tattoo gift to myself from Paul Pearson It's right next to the first tattoo I got 30 years ago.
  4. @Graeme Your thread made me laugh and feel a little nostalgic at the same time. You see, I'm rapidly approaching my 49th birthday. February 13th (which also falls on a Friday the 13th for the first time in ages! WOOHOO!) will mark the 30th year since I got my first tattoo. The tattoo shop was inside of a biker bar in Waynesville, N.C. It was named J.B's Tattoo & Tavern. You could get anything you wanted... As long as you picked it from the flash on the wall. He used an acetate stencil, graphite powder and Speedstick deodorant to transfer the design, and I remember very clearly that he didn't use gloves (this was 1985 after all). I've been hooked ever since, and that tattoo is still there. There's also an appointment already scheduled to mark this little milestone.
  5. I'm not sure if I ever posted a picture of my back when it was finished. Anyway, here it is. (found a better picture)
  6. Don't have a pic showing them together, but chest eagle and pharaoh's horses belly is what I went with.
  7. @Iwar This was so awesome! Excellent in every way! Reminds me a lot of the same love and care that the Gypsy Gentleman videos gave to tattooing.
  8. @el twe Yeah... That's what I said, especially after how much the stomach hurt, but she is the best plainskin Missus I could ever ask for. And I forgot, there is that one little tattoo she got to mark something off her bucketlist. A four leaf clover, about 1 inch tall... On her butt. - - - Updated - - - @chrisnoluck Clean as hell!
  9. Hi guys. I haven't posted anything in ages, but that doesn't mean I don't stop by regularly and check out whats new. The past year was kind of a rough one for me health-wise, but I'm cautiously optimistic that things are looking up. I only got one tattoo in 2014 but that's okay, as it was the last big spot I had left open. I spaced out getting this tummy tickler done from May through October. Just now got around to getting a healed picture (and a shitty one at that) of it. Done by my local dude Paul Pearson at Bright Ideas in Murfreesboro TN. (P.S. Although we used a print of the original Pharaoh's Horses painting for reference my plainskin Missus prefers to call it a three headed horse with a gunshot wound).
  10. #1 AC/DC Rock or Bust My number one only because It's the only album I've bought all year. (no new Social D album this year)
  11. Posted this one before somewhere, but here's mine.
  12. This article is just a prime example of trolling. Slate has sadly turned into clickbait same as Buzzfeed and Huffpost in recent years.
  13. After seeing @Graeme get off to a good start both here and IG, I got to thinking, my backpiece has been finished for a year and a half now. I sure do enjoy having it, but, damn I'm glad it's done! I wouldn't want to experience it again.
  14. @cltattooing. Saw this on your IG feed and really like it. The eyes and the light source nailed it for me. Pharaoh's Horses is one of my favorites of all time, and one I will have one day.
  15. I wanted a hot stuff devil/aloha monkey mash-up, and that's exactly what I got! Danny Reed put this on me yesterday at Hot Stuff Tattoo in Asheville, NC. Awesome guy, and a very cool shop. I waited till he put it on IG.
  16. I'm visiting home in North Carolina for the first time in a couple of years next week. I have an appointment with Danny Reed at Hot Stuff Tattoo on the 19th. It's for a hot stuff devil/aloha monkey mash-up
  17. Got a healed picture of mine I stole from his Instagram. It's done, for the time being. Tattoo by Paul Pearson
  18. Pretty much sums it up for me. Opposite side of the coin. I don't collect shit... I don't owe anybody anything (well, except for that 1 student loan, and it'll be paid off next year). I DO own: 1 old VW Beetle. 1 old Murray bicycle. Some nice music gear. Most of my torso and a good portion of my legs covered in art work done by only one or two local tattoo artists. Artwork that can't be duplicated because it's a reflection of me at this point. Oh, and some books and CD's that I can't seem to part with.
  19. Haven't posted in awhile, iv'e been busy lately. Anyway, finally couldn't take it any more. I went back and had my chest eagle colored today. Tattoo by Paul Pearson.
  20. Phone calls and visits and a nice cook out, and a memorable ride to the grocery store in my old VW. And I got this awesome dashboard hula girl for the bug.
  21. @else just as info, my daddy/daughter tattoo day was funded by me. The kid had her heart set on a Homeward Bound tattoo, but was resigned to putting it off this year because of trying to remodel her house. It was a unexpected treat for her and a great memory for me. (And I got Woodchuck Norris!!!!)
  22. Finally got all the springs changed on my old Beetle. It's 3.5 inches lower in the front now. I had help from a neighbor in exchange for a few cold beers and me whipping up a couple of pizzas on my grill.
