  1. Viam Est Mars ?... Does Elon Musk have a new tattoo then.
  2. Latest research would seem to suggest It's also going to depend on the initial macrophage response for the particular individual - which is going to vary person to person....and even be contingent on the health of the individual at the time of the tattoo - interesting stuff. The constant replacement of dead macrophages (and ink re-uptake) during the life of the tattoo also seems to me to possibly account for some of the weird "fully healed tattoo doing odd things every now and again" that some of us have experienced - I would love to see more proper research on this. Here's a bit of info:
  3. I've gone down the dry healing route for the latest after the crap with the last one - 4 days in and do you know what, I think I'm going to stop with the lotions and potions for aftercare - seems to be healing just fine by itself without me poking at it with salve. Also my clothes aren't covered in crap, which is nice. Anyone else just letting stuff heal by itself these days? -
  4. Scythe action from today... please also note the nineties tribal from a bygone age when things were different... I like it and I've heard it's coming back into vogue at some point or other. ...
  5. Yeah - no. Particularly the Gulf of Mexico or other coastal areas - Vibrio Vulnificus is no joke (although it does have a cool name).
  6. Marvellous! - my first real experience of a motorcycle was riding pillion on my cousin's GPZ750 turbo..... after that I really wanted a bike 🙂
  7. New Bike - picked it up on Saturday.... always wanted one when they first came out - had a zzr600 - and now this one....
  8. @Gingerninja I feel your pain, and hope it's healing better for you now - Ive just had something very similar happen on my 2 headed snek beast :-/... Ive so rarely had a problem healing that I had forgotten what a pain it can be..... I came down with flu (or at least a nasty cold) on the Wednesday after the tattoo - and that appears to have had an impact on how well I'm healing - which is bollocks as we say in the UK.
  9. Also Ginjerninja said: "I had my right knee colored in last Thursday (the line work was done last October). At this point, my left knee cap can stay empty forever!" Utmost respect to both of you - mine was mostly around the knee and not directly over 🙂 - ... somewhat interestingly I think I'm going for a piece next that will mean I have the joys of the knee ditch... and then after that inner thigh - marvellous 🙂
  10. Twin headed tree snake made of trees and snakes around the knee - connects with the green man etc - done today. Knees are interesting aren't they 🙂
  11. MichealShane.... thanks - we've released a load of stuff over the last few years - there's an Album called The Golden Section on iTunes/amazon etc... but you can listen to a bunch of free stuff on Jo's soundcloud page (Jo is the singer) - theres some of her solo stuff on there but if you scroll down there's some Kodiak Island tunes also....
  12. I absolutely love the atmosphere in the shop I go to - they are a fine and marvellous bunch of people and it really does make a difference. The experience is always filled with laughter, positivity and a sprint of adventure - It's fantastic to see how genuinely enthusiastic they all are about their art and they have created a place that is truly inspiring. I have a fair amount of work done now and I would not be interested in adding to it in a place that was not in some way magical and inspirational - but that's just me. 🙂 New music -see below for a new video of a folk band I play guitar in (that's allowed right?) I am from the UK and have no idea what an NBA is or why it is being played off.
  13. ongoing leg weirdness by the magical El Tragico from Saturday.... next up two headed snake blastover to cover some eighties/nineties "tribal" and a bit more leg...
  14. having a nice *short* tattoo session next Saturday... a marvellous eye thing above the tree person.... anything over 4 hours for me is too long - as I have discovered to my detriment..... it sort of goes... first 20 mins... ouch 20 mins to 2 hours ... oh that's nice I have endorphins. 2 - 3 hours... that's sightly less nice.... 3 - 4 hours... please can I go home now. I have picked a poor hobby for someone with a low pain threshold 🙂
