  1. (It's been a while since I've posted, so let me quickly reintroduce myself: I'm @hogg 's significant other. A tattoo collector, not an artist. Also, I'm an American historian -- a.k.a. an academic.) Perhaps we're all being a little hard on @SailorClaire because she is a self-identified academic. But those of us in that world are not all the same; we've all had different training, and we approach our research, our subjects, our writing, and our instruction from various perspectives and with various levels of discipline and care. With that said, @SailorClaire, you may
  2. I consider myself a respectful and well-behaved client. I tip generously and I've been known to bring baked goods and Virgin Mary statuettes to artists as "thank you"s. But I admit I have used an iPod and iPhone (Words With Friends, checking email, texting my husband, never any phone calls) during recent appointments. I never thought of this as rude behavior. I figured as long as my devices were silenced and I wasn't squirming to use them, it was perfectly acceptable client behavior, especially since it helps distract me from the pain. I also assumed most tattoo artists prefer not to chat
  3. Just posted the additional tattoo photos. I tried to delete the duplicates, but failed. Apologize for that.
  4. Perfect little Kewpie for my daughter. Stuart Cripwell.
  5. Lembrança ("remembrance") birdies, completed in about 45 minutes. Scott Silvia (who else?). Heath Preheim butterfly below.
  6. One vicious unicorn. Jamie Ruth (when she was at Temple Tattoo).
  7. One of three butterflies, all inspired by Cindy Ray's. Heath Preheim.

  10. Completed Fatima and black/gray roses. Freddy Corbin.

  12. Here's a smorgasbord: SF Gate Celeb Tattoo Photos Lots of uninspired yet oddly entertaining captions, like this one: "Mena Suvari has this ferocious tattoo on her upper back."
  13. Thanks. Searching for pictures to post, I realize I don't have fully-healed shots of many of my tattoos. Shameful, really. Will post more soon. Lochlan, I'd hate to bore anyone with the details of my dissertation, though it's nice of you to ask. In a nutshell, I'm writing about Los Angeles and the rise of gangsta rap. My goal is to write something that, unlike most academic books about hip-hop, is actually interesting. We shall see.
  14. ... I thought I should officially join. Happy to be here among so many of the artists I admire and in the midst of some serious collectors. Also, full disclosure: I'm married to a moderator, so be nice to me.
  15. 15 minutes into an appointment with Scott Silvia. (He finished shading and color about 10 minutes later.)
