  1. Got 2 art shows coming up later this year and have plenty of work to finish by then. 2 guest spots in GA and Bmore this summer and 1 or 2 other trips as well to SF and NY as well. Gonna start getting my back done real soon, that'll be a long time coming. Whole lotta shit going on and I'm spending too much time on the internet these days. So much so that I'm blundering into careless posts; I have curb a couple of forums for the sake of not being tempted to waste time. Not being able to post will actually be an awesome thing I'm doing. Hopefully I've been able to be a mostly positive/helpful pr
  2. @Mark Bee I've tried about 20 ways to skin the cat; as a tattooer I should be familiar with as many methods as possible for the sake of relaying that to clients. Getting tattooed for the last 25 years has allowed me to try just about all of them. Yeah the worst of it was the itch; they healed great. The one I got from Ron Wells a bunch of years ago was the first one I tried it on and it looks just as good as any of my others. In fact I did it again a second time due to ease of traveling with a different one just a few months ago. I've already found what works best for me a long time ago and I
  3. I just wanna give you the heads-up that talking about specific $ amounts here is in kind of poor taste and discouraged. I mean, how much IS a tattoo worth to you? How much is that tattooers service worth to you? A tip is a sign of appreciation for the service above and beyond the agreed upon price. When you tip your artist you are also tipping the front desk as well; that person gets tipped out by the artists at the end of the day. That person has a hard and dirty job; no matter what the hourly wage is they are still in an extemely high-risk profession. Tipping in general in the states is a b
  4. I tried a dry heal a couple of times and they healed up perfectly fine. Just itchy as hell for me, more so than other heals. I still prefer what I've found works best for me.
  5. That'll be a fun one for the kids to see at the water park! Last time I went I was getting a nasty look from a parent for a nekkid pinup on my leg at eye-level with their son & daughter.... This'll trump that.
  6. Yeah me too. I'm doing a guest spot in Bmore this summer so that should give me a chance to go up to NY and see that. - - - Updated - - - Skulls | California Academy of Sciences May 16th to November 30th. If any of you in SF decide not to see this I'm gonna slap you when we meet in real life. I'm gonna be making a visit later this year specifically to see this and bring a sketchbook. Tomorrow the admission is free.
  7. March 15, 2014 - September 8, 2014 Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine The Rubin Museum of Art 150 West 17th Street New York, NY 10011 The first major exhibition to present the origins, history and practice of a millennium of visual history, Bodies in Balance explores the guiding principles of the Tibetan science of healing represented in medical paintings, manuscripts, and medical instruments. A multi-media installation shows how Tibetan medicine is used today. Approximately 140 objects dating from the 9th century to the present day demonstrate the advancement of Tibetan me
  8. That's on you?! Damn I was just talking to Dave about that piece. Fucking awesome man. - - - Updated - - - Dave's a rad dude, good choice of image and tattooer
  9. I really don't know anything about Malaysia but it just sounds like the most humid place on Earth. I'll accept your compare/contrast of the swamp-ass factor.
  10. To be honest I think the whole fake-hair tattoo is super goofy, but then again I'm not the one losing hair. @hogg are you gonna start getting fake hair tats?
  11. Doubtful... this is on a sheet of super goofy designs including things like a watermelon dirigible.
  12. I woulda charged you out the ass also. To get me to do a tattoo that isn't a tattoo might cost you double or more.
  13. Manatee jumping over the moon was a go-to that I pointed out any time some clueless person walks up to the counter and says "what should I get?". No takers.
  14. Bump. Was going through a stack of old mags (FBF) and man I gotta say the old IT had so much good shit in it besides the psychedelic tribal stuff from Jon hah. He was definitely a self-promoter but he promoted a lot of other tattooers also. All of us would have missed seeing a lot of great tats and finding out about other tattooers across the country/globe. His group show at Psychedelic Solution was fucking awesome. Henk's short-lived mag was crucial also; it's a shame more issues weren't made.
  15. When I think of terrible 80s tattoos I think of multicolor mohawks and 80s razor sunglasses on a gorilla head. Thank you National Brand flash. So bad it's good.
  16. things shot full of arrows Well we have a thread about arrows but it's not linking.
  17. Just because you got something stabbing through your head doesn't mean that you're having a bad time
  18. I've never been to Canada during the summer so I can't speak from my own experience on that, but I don't think anyone knows humidity like the deep south does. The worst I have ever encountered. Never before had I lived somewhere where you pretty much have to chew your air before breathing it. It'll get 10 degrees hotter here in CO but still feel like an ocean breeze compared to the swamp-ass south. #dryheat
  19. An outline of a bird filled with fruit loops. Good choice. Go see a tattooer in real life, who gives a shit about what some people on the internet think.
