    Started tattooing in Macon at Rite of Passage under Chris Icenhour. Left there as the shop closed and went to work at, well, if you can't say something nice about someone.... then after a few months got to go work at Beyond Taboo in Macon for a few years. Got stupid and decided to open my own place, Wayne Street Tattoo, in Milledgeville, GA. Closed that, got divorced, moved to Savannah, and now I work at California Tattoo Company.

  1. I have a Santa Muerte candle in my set up that I bought at the taqueria because I'm a Breaking Bad fan. I was actually unaware of the figure before watching that show. Even with all the right bells and whistles most of the exoteric world will think its just a cool looking grim reaper.
  2. I have drank more than my share of that black evil, lol. It's at the top of the list of things my friends have asked me to bring back. I was looking for an email address for Andy, didn't see one. I'd like to get on touch ahead of time if possible. Do you have a contact for him other than the shop phone?
  3. Is that a street shop or what? I'm really just wanting some sort of pick and stick whateverness. I've been tattooing over a decade now and I'm still an awful customer, lol. I'm thinking some kind of souvenir tattoo. Get myself a picture of a puukko and some cloudberries, bottle of kosku, maybe a box of salmiaki? Something good and Finnish.
  4. Sailor Andy, I recognize that name. He was on the old old RSTF
  5. Helsinki, Hyvinkaa, Lahti I tend to lean towards traditional work for myself but whatever
  6. Anyone in Finland, preferable the southern part, worth getting a tattoo from?
  7. Episcopalian, when I make it to church. I had more of a comment to make but I just suffered massive brain fart.
  8. Are you referring to the guy with the itty bitty portraits as being close minded or yourself?
  9. I worked for about three months for a chain of tattoo shops. Worst period fiscally and artistically in my tattooing career. The owner looks like a stoner yard gnome, lol. We were employees so he withheld taxes but we still had to provide everything ourselves. The only thing he stocked the shop with was Pine-Sol. I was the only artist at the location I was stuck in, he has a dozen or so shops up and down the I-75 area of Georgia. Big billboards and everything. At the time I was fresh out of my apprenticeship and only left the place I started because it was closing down. We had to provi
  10. I'm going to be in Finland between 7/8 and 7/18, I'd love to do a guestspot while there. I'm not sure on what Finland's rules on such goings on are but I am technically a Finnish citizen, so that should simplify things. I know I'll be in either Helsinki or Hyvinkaa the bulk of my visit, but I have no real solid plans, this is just to visit family. This is probably the most up to date portfolio I have online, https://www.facebook.com/ThomasMakesTattoos . Thanks!
  11. I have roses and a bread and butter fly. I get so frustrated with customers that think a flower, or a spot of pink, or whatever in their tattoo is going to make them look gay. And I have a tramp stamp, it's awful, but it's there.
  12. I remember an old old Easyrider article, as in when I was a kid stealing them from my dad, that explained how to sand a tattoo off. Went into what grade paper to use, healing instructions, etc... Seemed like a lot of fun. Claimed to be relatively low scarring.
  13. Savannah seems to be the most heavily tattooed place I've ever lived. That said I seldom have gotten much of a bad vibe from people about my tattoos, and I'm from a fairly backwater place. Last time anyone said anything to me negative was an older lady felt the need to bring up Leviticus on me. I ended the conversation really quick by asking her if she left town when she was on her period.
  14. I had a customer ask about having blood tests done right after a tattoo. He wondered if it could mess with the test results. He was being really vague so I'm not sure what kind of tests he was having done, something the Army wanted. Best I could tell him was "I don't think so." I was having regular blood sugar, electrolyte level testing a while back and the doctor never said anything about being tattooed affecting them. Anyone have a solid answer on this one?
  15. I've been thinking about this. I kind of feel it's some serious art fag douche baggery but at the same time I'm a jealous hater. If I could charge that much and stay booked up I'd do it.
