  1. To take little bits of styles, kind of like techniques (whip shading, thick lines, etc.) and to add it to your "arsinal" is one thing. To just rip someone's very specific style is bullshit and a whole other world. Look at something else as an example. Certain comedians nab bits and pieces of one anothers style and work, but make that bit fit into a whole that is really their own. Red Foxx, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy etc is an example of the movement. But when they straight jack jokes and bits? Carlos Mencia style, fuck that shit, it's weak. How do you even call yourself an artist then?
  2. I always saw it in 2 ways. 1- You wanted a cool knife AND an animal so jam them together. 2- The more "BS-Filled" meaning I've heard is it's signifigant of defeating or overcoming something difficult. But really just that ^^^^^. I have a Gorilla getting stabbed. It's pissed about it too. Rad as fuck.
  3. Been a while but I'm slapping this up. War Elephant by Destroy Troy out of Kansas City/Timeless Tattoo. http://www.lastsparrowtattoo.com/gallery/member/16793-war-elephant.html&imageuser=4428

    War Elephant

    War Elephant original design my Destroy Troy of Timeless Tattoo in KC (he'll soon be in CO I think) @destroytroy Instagram
  5. Izumo of Instinct Tattoo (Japan/Toronto) original devil design @izumonster Instagram. Kind of a warp shot due to location (bicep)
  6. Rollo design done by Jason Hoodrich at Taylor Street Tattoo
  7. Never too much black. Thick black lines hold up, look strong, and are awesome.
  8. If it's a legit shop with legit tattooists, who cares? It can bring in new customers and it's kind of fun. Taylor Street in Chicago usually does Friday 13th, they're "$13 + $7 tip" and usually just line work, but they're fun. Nothing BAD. Same with Halloween, usually something. I've gotten a few and they're cool and done well. They also do "Traditional Tuesdays" were you can drop $50 and get a cool classic Rollo or Jerry (or other) designs. Name day, "Get what you get" ($50, gum ball machine with random flash, fun for everyone!) I've also had larger work done there too so it's not like I'm a total cheap skate. If all you want tattooed are large tattoo's in certain styles, yeah, not for you. If you love little jammers now and then, just make sure it's a good shop. To me, it's a combo of just fun and a solid way to draw new people into your shop. So no harm, no fowl. I don't see it as something only "kitchen wizards" do or something to turn your nose up to. If a shop DOESN'T, good, that's their thing. Not for everyone. If you're a jaghole who calls every shop looking for a deal, screw off asshole. If it's not on their website, or FB, or Instagram, or whatever, don't go bugging hard working people with your shit.
  9. Wearing pants is gonna suck for a while, damn! Nice though for sure!
  10. Motorhead too, they like to wear Motorhead shirts also. With glitter on them. I hate those.
  11. Just had one put on my calf. The worst was the first day after, sitting for a while then standing and the fucking blood pumping, gah. The legs, particularly calves, are kind of interesting since it's kind of the point where your bodies all like "Yo blood, get the fuck back up to the heart and brain!" and pumps it back through the veins. Lots going on down there. That said, my 1 other below-the-knee tattoo didn't take any longer to heal or anything weird. Just different shit. Can't cross my legs a certain way or whatever.
  12. I now need a Tony Harrison tattoo fuck! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
  13. Never entered but this was too fun. Vince Leblanc did it from Animal Farm Tattoo in Chicago. Reptillian Mayor conspiracy action.
  14. Sweet green tiger on my ribs. Done by Ross Nagle while doing a guest spot at Great Lakes Tattoo in Chicago.
