  1. When I was working on my dragon, I went in for a five hour session. Unknown to me, I was coming down with the flu. During the session I had chills and started shaking. Thought maybe my shirt had been off too long. Yes I had the real deal FLU. Doctor told me to take some time off work. I felt like crap. The work turned out perfectly. No one in the shop got sick. just felt very poor for a week. Nothing to do with the ink. I have another large piece in the drawing stages. If I even thought I was getting sick, I would reschedule out of respect to my artist. Hope this helps, RD

    Where does your username come from or mean?

    In years gone by, I lived in Alaska. Loved it there.
  3. broke up with my gf after 6 months. Damn I hate dating new people. Especially when I am planning my next tattoo....LOL Try explaining you are conservative, curmudgeon that loves ink. Life is good...just crazy.

    Upcoming Tattoos

    Going in for my touch up on the bulldog piece. Then making an appointment to have the rooste put on my back to tie into the dragon on my right arm.
  5. Finished. Artist insist I come back for a touch up in a couple weeks. It was worth the wait and sticking with a good Artist.
  6. Well I waited. My artist went to a new shop and get set up. Went is for session 2 today and we had a great afternoon laughing. Project is almost complete.
  7. I am in the process of having a piece done on my leg. Got the line work done and my Artist and friend left my favorite shop. So now I am at the cross roads of having the work completed by the owner of the shop or waiting until my Artist sets up shop again. After five tattoos over the past year, I have developed a great working relationship with this shop and the staff. What would you experienced members suggest?

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Getting started on a fun piece before my back project. Artist changed the classic photo to match the color of my dog. So this is tattoo number five and I am still learning. Yes your biceps are free. Back is not too bad. Thigh is a little more sensitive until you start rounding the corners. Got the line work this session. Going to be a fun summer

  11. Anyone heard of or had work at koi tattoo in Hawaii? Have a good friend going there Saturday. She visited the shop, asked a lot of questions and then booked an appointment. I might visit there soon since I have a son in the army who lives there.

    Scars after cover up tattoo

    Couple thoughts-The work looks good. I have a large cover piece and understand cover work. You can see my post in the cover tattoo section. Frequently Cover work is never going to make the first work completely invisible. What it does is draw attention to the new work. Full color saturation is seldom one and done.
