  1. Hey man any new tattoos?

  2. Done! Added the mountains and my wife's name at the shoulder, inside of the arm touches, elbow and the final touches throughout the tattoo. Adam was great to work with and did a fantastic job.
  3. I had the same reaction. While it sucks to hear that you went through the same thing, I am glad I am not the only one who experienced the joy of going into shock after the long sessions.
  4. Latest update: Next appoints with Adam Hays are in May to finish up my sleeve. Much to my surprise, I had no scabbing. Itched like a bitch for awhile with the skin flaking off. When I am tired and not thinking I find myself walking across the house and out of the corner of my eye I get surprised that I have a full sleeve. My girls love it. "That's my horsey!" says one of my 3yo daughters.
  5. First tattoo and it was a full sleeve, 6 hours on Thursday, 6 hours on Friday. Flew home Saturday morning.
  6. We get (on average) 10 of the Terlingua's down to Terlingua every year (including the Terlingua Cobra) :) Thanks for the warm welcome everyone
  7. I plan on going to different people for mine since they are specific in design.
  8. Adam told me of a guy down in the Atlanta area who is a tattoo artist as well but he specializes in the water scenes since he is a diver and underwater photographer. I am going to look into him when the time is right. I am not starting the right arm until I am done with the left. Ninja edit: http://www.psychotats.com/newweb/pages/DeanoCook/DeanoCook.htm This is the guy.
  9. Guess I left out this part of the story. I have the plans for my right arm in my head. I am also a Master Diver, Rescue Diver, TEC Diver and a host of other diving certifications (still working on TEC and Dive Master). I also enjoy the Caribbean and boating. So my right arm is going to be a full color ocean theme with a pirate ship on top (shoulder) then under the water is going to be a SCUBA diver, fish and other aquatic life. Opposing arms, different themes.
  10. Adam Hays at Red Rocket Tattoo in NYC did my sleeve. There are multiple meanings in my ink. First off, it is not done. I have about 6 hours of detail work left to do. So on to the story! 2008 was a great year for me. My first daughter was born (I have twin daughters born a year later) and I took delivery of my 2008 Shelby Terlingua. #2 of 38 built. I took delivery at the Shelby American Terlingua 2008 event in Terlingua, TX. Come to find out, my wife went to college in the next down over. In 2009, Shelby American couldn't do the event. So myself and 3 of my friends did. In 2010 I took the Te
