  1. A Confederate flag in 2017? Now that's going against trend.
  2. Bad news for Japanese tattooers: https://kotaku.com/osaka-courts-ruling-helps-destroy-tattoos-in-japan-1818834734 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. That's awful. I saw the pics on IG. Surprised he didn't have insurance. Poor guy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Or find an artist you like who works in that style and trust him or her. A good experienced tattooer will know how to put something on you that stands the test of time. Which also means you have to listen to what they can and cannot do. Too many people end up with shit tattoos because they're stubborn or think they know better
  5. Then put that energy into planning your next one. Or maybe tattoos aren't for you. Cos that one definitely won't be "perfect" either. Nature of the beast and all that
  6. Yes and no. :) It's a problem if it's making you miserable but that's a question for a shrink not me
  7. They're not. Believe me, no one notices but you just like no one notices the "mistakes" on mine. I've seen a lot of shitty script tattoos and yours is not one of them. Besides didn't you say you fixed it up a bit?
  8. Then let it be a lesson to you not to sweat the small stuff. Not trying to belittle your OCD or saying get over it. Just trying to turn a negative into a positive. Tattoos are imperfect because they're made by humans, not robots, and there's no eraser on the other end of the tattoo machine. That's part of the beauty of them. People aren't perfect either. Get more tattoos and you won't even think about it. Worked for me
  9. The missus (@TrixieFaux) & I got tattooed today for our tenth wedding anniversary. Peonies by Horisuzu at Unbreakable in beautiful Studio City, CA Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. On my elbow I did. Actually got it touched up and the same thing happened so I guess I just have to live with it. Could have been my fault for repeatedly bending my elbow but I wasn't about to wear a sling or anything Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Sure. I mean people get full body suits from one artist. In my experience once you're "in" with an artist you either make all your appointments in advance or just book at the end of each session. Often the waiting list is for taking on new clients but every artist works differently. The best thing to do is ask. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yes, I would hate to see people not visit this forum because of stupid shit people say. We're here to talk about getting good tattoos regardless or race, religion, sexual preference, blah blah blah. Everyone is welcome here besides trolls and spammers
  14. I'll accept your non-apology, I guess. I don't get the joke. Jews are cheap? Ha-ha, that's a good one. Never heard that before. The fact that you're Jewish – does that make it okay? I don't know. Maybe I'm easily offended. But no, I don't like antisemitism or racism or homophobia or any of that shit. And yes, I'll call it out when I see it – even on the internet and especially this forum because I don't want to see it fucked up by a bunch of trolls. And before you start in about the "PC police" or "safe spaces" or any of that shit... It's called trying not to be asshole when you can avoid it. A good policy to live by I think.
  15. How Jewish? What the F***ing F***?! Please tell me that's a typo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. At a glance I'd say Otherworld. I recommend going into the shop, looking at portfolios, and asking which artist is most into doing dot work.
  17. Of those #2 but to be honest I'd hold out for a #3 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Just get more tattoos. They all look good together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Tribal is coming back so you're ahead of the trend. I predict chrome panthers will be big in 2017 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. It's a classic image. You might want to make sure that the head dress is authentic for whatever tribe. I'm not Native American but I doubt you'll offend too many people Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. It's all good. Happy Christmakwanzaahanukkah -- or whatever pagan holiday you prefer!
  22. So I made what I think is a valid point and you responded over two months later with a bunch of nonsense words, because...?
  23. Is it possible he wants a deposit before discussing the design? If he's that busy I'm sure he doesn't want to spend a lot of time bullshitting/brainstorming tattoo ideas unless he's sure you're gonna book with him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I love that tattoo. Wouldn't change a thing. Maybe live with it for awhile? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
