  1. What's the "correct" way to do things

    In this world someone will always find a reason to object to almost anything. Bottom line is = there are no rules unless you are trying to impress someone specific.
  2. ideas for existing tattoo

    ornamental filigree would be adaptable to whatever space you wanted to dedicate to it, but I'd be careful in getting the right artist. The existing text is already a bit blurry so it's going to be tricky to blend it all together.

    forearm, maybe?
  4. Hi Everyone

  5. My sleeve progress

    Nice clean work there.
  6. Lilac tattoo. Not what I expected

    Just add some more of that to and around the original. 3rded on the "doesn't look phallic to me" list.
  7. Traveling to get a large tattoo a logistic nightmare?

    Wow, @Oiocha, that's a pretty tough Artist's stance.
  8. Finding an artist

    In that area = including but not in any way limited to Matt Black, Anka Lavriv, John Sultana, Ivan Barbosa, Angela De Rosette and Anderson Luna. Any one of them also are capable or reproducing that style (if they have an interest to do so).
  9. Finding an artist

    Yeah - kind of a European thing, but there has to be someone in the NYC area who is heading in that direction . . .
  10. Finding an artist

    "Sketch work" could be interpreted a few ways. You might want to post up a couple of references here so we kind-of know what's in your head . . .
  11. What do you use?

    Sorry - I'm a dry healer.
  12. Hello from Thailand

    I've got a niece in that area (I think) of Thailand. I'll have to let her know about your shop!
  13. Yep to both ( @Gingerninja & @Hogrider), but the latter is strictly for those tattooists who you already implicitly trust. I wouldn't recommend that for any of the newbies on the forum.
  14. Tattoo cloudy

    Yep. You gotta wait. It's going to take 6-8 weeks before you really know what it's going to look like.
  15. If you're done, you're done - but it's not at all unusual for the "artist" to draw up the design the night before, or even the hour before.
