  1. got so excited i double posted :)
  2. so lemme get this straight. those were your guest spots in ONE MONTH!?!?!? looks like i really needed to be studying in london this fall. wow, to think of all those artists getting to work together in the same environment over such a short span, thats truly special. i can only hope that it happens again, and hopefully i'll be able to find out about it in advance. how would one hear of a line of guestspots like that happening? it would have been an honor to get tattooed by that entire group, you really have good taste in people who take tattooing seriously and work to further themselves. that was awesome

  4. josh arment nick colella chad koeplinger everyone at smith street everyone at frith street tim lehi scott sylvia tim hendricks freddy corbin horitaka and a good long trip to san fransisco -its a long list, but only four tattoos to count and a long life ahead of me give me alot of hope
  5. choosing my artists has been an easy journey so far. i was lucky in finding Charlie Forbes at Twilight, but being that my preferred style is traditional, i'm not exactly at a loss for good tattooers to find. this site has really increased my understanding of what a good tattoo looks like, and when i see one like it on a customer or in an artists book, i can make an appointment with confidence.
  6. Lochlan, I've gotten a gentleman lemur playing a violin, a traditional portrait of Corduroy (teddy bear from the childrens book) on my ribs, a traditional portrait of calvin coolidge on my forearm (he didnt talk much, and i like that), and an all black banksy piece on my calf. i just got my ribs shaded last night, it was a whole lotta hurt. i didnt move at all, but i'm glad it was only two hours.
  7. I've been getting all of my work done by a guy named Charlie Forbes, he works out of Twilight Tattoo in south minneapolis. He's got a really cool spin on traditional tattooing, and he can rock out some purist traditional too. I've heard good things about Josh at aloha monkey, anyone who gets a shop passed down from Rollo is probably rock solid. Does anyone know about his level of availability?
  8. Sup, guys? I'm a 21 year old from minnesota, and I just recently got into collecting tattoos. I'm not well versed in it yet, but i really enjoy good tattoos, getting tattooed, and hearing about the craft in general. Traditional is my absolute favorite, and i love seeing artists apply their own influence to traditional tattooing. I look forward to learning a thing or two
