  1. Had numbing spray used on my rib piece. I had sat for about an hour and my side was twitching, I couldn't stop it. He used the spray and it took the edge off for about 15 minutes and went right back to pain city, it even seemed a little worse, after using the spray on me twice I didn't want it anymore because it made the pain seem worse when it wore off.
  2. The guy that has done most of my tattoos uses a combination of coil machines for line work and rotary machines for shading. When I first got tattooed by him he used coils exclusively, when he started in with the rotary machines it seemed to me that the rotary was considerably more painful. Just my perception though, could be I'm just imagining things, I think it is different for everyone.
  3. I live just 40 minutes SW of where it started. I drove right through where it touched down about 5 minutes before. All my friends and family that live in the area are accounted for although a couple of my friends houses where right in the path in the worst hit area. They lost everything, but are still alive.
  4. I wouldn't know lol....She seems to be a big topic of conversation on parent teacher conference night though. I know she has been asked to cover it up repeatedly when she comes to the school.
  5. One of the moms at my kids school has a big cock tattooed on her forearm, that gets a lot of attention.
  6. Well the article didn't say it was a good one....with good reason. SMH
  7. Quit almost 20 years ago...smoked about a pack a day for 5 years, woke up one morning and grabbed a cigarette first thing like i normally did. Decided right then and there that I needed to stop. Threw away the rest of what I had and never picked it up again. It was rough going for awhile but knew I wanted to stick with it. I think the most important thing is that you have to want to quit.
  8. What the heck, I'll throw mine in the ring this month...Got this one back in Janurary. Done by Thomas Deaton at Twisted Reality tattoo
  9. I think that if I had Pro Baseball money I'd spring for a better artist.....

    hi there

    Welcome, and like @hogg said, we'd like to see some of your old work.
  13. Welcome, I also recently got the back of my calf tattooed. My foot and ankle began to swell after 2 days, It took a good 3-4 days before the swelling went down. Glad you were able to get the answer you needed. Hope you'll post up a pic of your tattoo soon.
  14. So angry that they took this off the air after only one season, one of my favorite scifi shows. Like @reverend1 said, watch Serenity, you won't be disappointed.
  15. Liar and a thief....Doesn't get much lower. Glad he was caught and fired.
  16. @Scott R Awesome back piece. Sorry if this was posted before but who did this tattoo?
  17. What about the last episode when the jackass with no tattoos had everyone draw them on him after the judges ripped him for it.
  18. You got that right. I think it's hard for them to find good tattooers willing to go on the show.
  19. I would say just continue with the lotion and don't try to peel it, let if fall off naturally. I had one area on my arm that scabbed like that and once it was healed you could not tell anything was wrong at all. If there is any loss of color you can just get it touched up. Most, if not all, artists do this for free.
  20. I work in a corporate environment. When I first started with this company there was no policy against visible tattoos, I didn't have any visible at the time. About 2 years in the company got bought out by a larger corporation, the dress code changed over night, visible tattoos were no longer acceptable. We have now been bought out a third time by another larger corporation. There is no longer any company policies specifically worded for tattoos visible or otherwise. I have visible tattoos now and have many friends with visible tattoos but all of them are cover-able. I feel like if you are going to work in a corporate setting its best to keep your ink concealable if possible, you never know when that dress code my change. I was speaking with one of my co-workers about tattoos a couple of years ago (they have since moved on). He was in a management position and we were discussing tattoos. He told me that in an interview once they had a man that interviewed quite well but when he got up to leave the room they could see the outline of his tattoo through the back of his shirt and that was the reason he got passed over for another equally qualified candidate. It sucks that it happens but it is still a fact of life that people discriminate against tattooed individuals.
  21. Definitely start with the first book if you decide to read them. Although they did a great job with the show, there is a lot that is left out.
  22. Longest I've sat is 6 hours on my outer bicep/shoulder area. The artist and I were both getting tired so we decided to call it a day. Also sat for 5 hours on my ribs once. I should have broken that up into two settings.
  23. I started off watching the first 2 seasons of the show. Decided to read the books and so glad I did. The show is great but the books are much better. Only about halfway through the second book so I may not participate too much in this thread as I don't want any spoilers. ;)
