  1. Sorry for your loss, man. Ive been there. Its a solid tattoo. I understand that loss can make the tattoo process hasty for a memoriam but as others have said, just keep getting some more tattoos. You got this.
  2. Sounds like you have a good idea of what theme you want to go for. Since we don't necessarily know you, we might not have the best ideas to offer. My advice is to pick a style, find an artist, and spitball some ideas. Another good place to look is the image gallery, it can give you more ideas than we could possibly.
  3. Welcome Back! Very solid piece so far.
  4. What a tough month, all the submissions are so good! Great topic to start the TOTM off right!
  5. Awesome! Glad, it's back! I think its a fun contest that can help people strive to get better tattoos.
  6. Excerpt from the conclusion of the research: Damn, I thought I was crazy when I noticed my tattoos healing faster. No wonder why it seems that the stress of getting tattooed decreases the more you get.
  7. @Rob I I was just giving you shit in response to you're joke, but my humor can easily come off as snarky. I also think its pretty cool the way these tattoos were preserved for the generations(I couldnt do it either, though). I believe there is a museum of skin like this in japan. I think would be bitchin' to see one day. I love macabre museums. here is a link to more pictures of tattooed skin: http://www.cvltnation.com/dead-skin-living-art-the-museum-of-tattooed-skin/
  8. Thank you Captain Grammar! Without grammar nazis how would the peons of the internet know they made a simple grammatical error? I fixed it for you, and no you cannot look under the floorboards.
  9. I would recommend compiling a group of tattoo imagery you like, then go and visit various shops/ artists to check out their portfolio. Once you find an artist (or several) that does the style you are looking for, you can speak with them and see what they can create for you. Spit ball ideas with them, listen to the artist, and enjoy the journey.
  10. Here is tattooed skin from the 19th century, it belonged to a french soldier (hundreds of skins like this were preserved). The Top depicts images of a nautical star, a lady head, and 'D’amour' in script; which means 'my love.'

    Fitness!

    As of late, with my busy schedule I have been doing only bodyweight (prison) exercises. I run a 5x5 regiment regularly, but with these exercises and no gym; I needed to modify it. I have been doing squats, dips, pushups, lunges, walking (about 6 mi) whenever at work, and some advanced stretching (yoga). I workout 3-4 times a week and for approx. 30min. So far its worked very well, and saves money for more tattoos!
  12. As @Dan said before, It would be best to discuss your idea with a good local artist about what you want and have them make a design that fits.
  13. Here is an example of what everyone was attempting to convey. With the font thin like that, it would take away from the tattoo as a whole. Get a tattoo that looks like a tattoo, I remember someone saying that once.
  14. This is the best advice one can give for sucky situations such as these. Not everyone will understand tattoos and the culture, but thats why we have an awesome community here.
