  1. Can your artist recommend someone with similar style? But if waiting till another trip is an option that would be my vote.

    I think it looks very good.
  3. Right?!?! As a 47yr old newbie I can't discuss things like price and it's very frustrating. An article online of top 10 highest paid artists says #9-Bob Tyrrell – $150 per hour yet other articles say that's the "average" you should expect to pay. Are we getting taken advantage of by not allowing anyone to discuss it? As for the dad teaching his little girl a trade? If he was teaching her to work on cars would anyone mind? Or teaching her to cook? Whatever! Good job dad, give your kids something to fall back on.
  4. I know and I will. I just really hated my new doctor so I avoided the whole thing. I have very good family so please don't worry about me. But thanks for showing concern.
  5. Thanks for the input! I do like a lot of the stuff at rockstar. Have you heard of blue lotus in Madison? - - - Updated - - - Well my PTSD is mostly handled well by the little pill. Can't seem to talk about it which most doctors believe is needed. One said I'm just the best at avoidance and so long as it doesn't mean I avoid life as a whole than its fine if I want to avoid (wish that Doctor was still working, he was the best for me). Anyway thanks for the reply. Ryan is awesome but doesn't have quite the feel I'm looking for. - - - Updated - - - Oh that little pill.... Ran out a few weeks ago and hate my new doctor. I really need to call VA and ask for a new one. I've been way too jumpy last several days but this new doctor can't get it thru her head that I don't need a mommy who's all "aw, you poor thing, tell me all about it". Whatever! Give me my pills and ask me if I need anything, accept my "no" and move on.
  6. Been married 11 yrs to a man I met while we were both active duty military. Now we are both retired and I'm looking to get 4 tattoos (I'm tattooless at this time). Medium to large visible tattoos, not a little butterfly on my ankle. He just smiles at me and says he loves getting to know the side of me he didn't know 11 years ago. He has NO desire to get any but it's intersting to him and seems to give us new things to talk about. Anyone married 11 yrs knows the conversation can become a little....well, lacking. This is opening us up to new explorations of eachother.
  7. I met a woman several years ago and found out later she was Native American. To me it was just who she was and not the point to my liking her. The thing is I've learned things about her culture and her family's struggle due to their heritage that I never knew happened in the modern day. She's a beautiful, accepting, open minded, intelligent, loving woman who happens to be one of the most important people in my life. I wanted to get a Native American image tattoo to commemorate my friendship with her and then found myself feeling that it was necessary to get her permission. Not sure where that feeling comes from but because of that feeling I've simply decided that if I needed to have her permission then in someway it was not MY tattoo. I may talk to her about it someday but for now I just love her and her friendship and continue to learn about her and her family's ways. Just my two cents on why I will not cross the cultural appropriation line...not now anyway. We'll see where things lead down the road. I do feel that someone should ask themselves why they want an image that has nothing to do with their own self. But it's just my thoughts and I wouldn't judge someone for their thoughts.
  8. Thanks for the reply! I'm easily able to travel a few hours (Wisconsin/Chicago area) but I'm willing to go anywhere is US. I don't know how to imbed a pic but what you picked is close. Just want black and grey and a single girl sleeping against the tree. I know the meaning behind the image sounds like I want everything plus the kitchen sink but not so much. Hope this link works. It's the Druids keep called Paranor from Terry Brooks Sword of Shannara. http://http://thefourlands.tumblr.com/post/112251647298/original-illustrations-for-the-sword-of-shannara - - - Updated - - - I thought I had an artist picked. Not because he had these images in his portfolio but because I thought his portfolio looked like skilled work. I'm hoping I will get better at learning to judge "good" work by hanging out on this forum. I do want B&G. Color is pretty but just doesn't suit my style.
  9. I've been wanting tattoos for years but didn't want to bother with the military rules. Now I'm retired and have map out my tattoos in my head but want to learn how to find a good artist to bring it together. The first tattoo will be the one that reminds me that just because I don't think I'm beautiful doesn't mean I'm not, that I need to allow myself to be spontaneous and just enjoy life and that when sugar has turned to shit a good book will let me escape reality for a little while. Yes, all of that in one tattoo and I know the images that will bring it together, a picture from my fav book that was drawn by the Bros. Hildebrandt (basically a castle Seen thru the trees) and a girl lounging against the tree who will look similar to a famous painting...but how do I find an artist that can do it.... Second tattoo will remind me that the PTSD that makes me jump is all in my head and I need to just relax.... Third tattoo will be for my son who was born in the year of the dragon... Forth tattoo will be a vine starting at my right ankle and going all the way up across my back and down my left arm with flowers that have special meanings to me. I thought I found the artist for me but I showed some of his work on another forum and got told by several that his worked sucked. I want to be more spontaneous but a bad tattoo for that reminder with have the opposite effect. Well, that's me and my tattoo needs. Thanks for listening.
