  2. Thanks everyone for your replies. I didn't feel it necessary to start a new thread. So i spoke to him and he basically told me where i wanted it positioned wouldn't look good and i have to agree. So now I'm expanding what i want from thigh to shoulder on one side of my torso. "river style" OK so now my next questions.. WHERE DO I STOP IT. The tattooist is telling my i should venture into a quarter/half sleeve - but atm i don't feel comfortable getting any part sleeved yet. on the other hand in the future when i actually decide to get a sleeve i would probably prefer to get a full sleeve a
  3. Ok so i have a consult this Saturday for my ribs to be tattooed by a well known Ausssie, who specializes in Japanese tattoo. So i was told to bring in any reference material i have on the day. Just wondering how much reference material i should bring in. Especially if someone specializes in it. I don't feel its necessary to bring in a picture of a lotus flower or whatever because i would expect he has done it countless times. So what exactly would i need it bring in as reference material. Would it be bad for me to bring nothing in?

  6. wtf is this, would be pretty cool to levitate someone with a fart.
  7. Ok guys sorry for going off topic with this post but i didn't see the need to post a new topic for it. Just wondering what this symbol is called and what the true meaning is.

But does it represent white skin, or white blood line. eg. against any white person who breeds with another race.. any info will be appreciated. Thanks.

  10. For me the back was quite easy to do, apart from some places. I had the whole thing done in about 3months or so broken down into 3hr sessions. I found the parts that are your "love handles" was the most painful aswell as when i had a 3hr session on my butt cheek. I went in with an idea my artist drew up a couple stencils for my koi and then drew the rest straight onto my back with a texter, then he altered a couple things and we went at it. He was very quick throughout the whole thing, about 1hr to stencil the koi, about 1hr to put everything on my back. around 1.5hours to tattoo the outlin
  11. Hey i was just curious, i am in the market for a new tattoo i can't seem to find any decent references. I'm looking for a custom drawn tattoo of a Rokurokubi, (for those who don't know: Rokurokubi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) the ones i find are pretty crap at best or not the feel i am after. I am after a more traditional style to go with the rest of my work. Anyway i don't want to just walk into a shop and ask for one' as there are many different poses and styles that the tattooist could do, i may or may not like them. So anyway my question could any of you recommend a Japanese tatt
