    Dr. Martens Tattoo Collection

    The price on the boots seems reasonable to me... the t-shirts seem pricey. Just me.

    Tattoo regret

    I agree with everyone else, that's a wicked cool tattoo. I can understand it taking awhile to get over that big of a change. I'd be happy just to be that fit! lol
  3. I watched it on Vice's website. Very good, Chris Garver seems like a great guy and artist. Hope the rest are that good.

    Need Help!!!

    To me this is the trickiest part of being a tattoo collector. You need to express enough of your thoughts to the artist to convey what you're looking for without tying their hands or stepping on their toes. Jeff Gogue has a very interesting video about his back piece and the need to surrender when getting a tattoo... as in trusting your artist and surrendering to their creativity. Best of luck and show us what you get.
  5. That would be a tough call. If it were me, since it is started, I'd stay with the artist and then re-evaluate after that one is finished.

    RIP Anthony Bourdain

    I doubt that anyone does.

    RIP Anthony Bourdain

    Anthony Bourdain dead at 61 Don't know if anyone else watched and enjoyed Tony's work, but we've watched his shows for years and are saddened by his passing. Not only was the food and places he visited interesting, but it was great when they showed him getting tattooed. Sincere condolences to his family and friends. Also, if you know someone that suffers from depression and think something is troubling them, please do whatever you can to make sure they're OK.
  8. Those pop up on my IG at times. Hard to believe that a human can do that. Wonder how many "false starts" there are on average for each one completed.

    Family tribute - opinions wanted

    Thanks a lot for the input @SStuand I completely understand your point. I just don't know how I could come up an image(s) that would represent all of us. I was just hoping to hear that I'm not inviting a train wreck lol. Thanks everyone.

    Family tribute - opinions wanted

    Thanks for the thoughts. I really like the general idea, but can't convince myself that it will really work. I know the ultimate answer is go see an artist and get their input. If anyone has a completely different idea(s) of how to accomplish the same thing, I'd really appreciate hearing it.

    Tattoo Peel

    I think what everyone will tell you is that's not long enough to consider it healed and that fingers are a bad place for a tattoo to stay looking good. Welcome btw
  13. I'm gearing up to start on my 3rd tattoo... that was going to be my 1st. I know what I want, but in my mind's eye I'm not 100% yet. I'm hoping I can describe it well enough that you kind folks can lend some thoughts or improvements. The placement will be on the lower 2/3 of my upper right arm. (unless of course the artist says it needs to be elsewhere) I would like mine and my wife's 1st initials in script with an & between and our anniversary date above or below. That would be "held" by filigree/scroll work below that connect a heart with our daughter's name and birth date. That in turn would have the same filigree going down to 2 hearts with our grandkid's name and birth dates. I kinda think of it as an inverted family tree. I'd appreciate your thoughts on the design and any suggestions that might improve it. Thanks! John
  14. I agree, it's not bad at all. It's the kind of thing that we view much more critically than anyone else. Chances are 99 out of 100 people would never notice. If all else fails, do what I do. Make up some outlandish BS reason for it being that way and see if you can get them to believe it. lol
