  1. Jason's shop Artwork Rebels in Portland, OR literally exploded this morning. A construction company working nearby hit a gas line which resulted in an explosion that leveled the building. Luckily no one was in the shop at the time and there were only a few injuries and no deaths. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Jason and rest of the crew get back on their feet. Any of you that have met him know he's a great guy. Help him out if you can. https://www.gofundme.com/help-artwork-rebels-tattoo-rebuild-2v2knyk
  2. Still chipping away at the front. Here's the latest on the right thigh. https://www.instagram.com/p/BDjFMyVMVH7/?taken-by=horitomo_stateofgrace
  3. We need to wear Last Sparrow pins or something.
  4. The high speed face twitching was fantastic.
  5. I'll be there again. Maybe this time I can actually meet up with some of you!
  6. The thing to really be upset about here is that dude got his hand and neck blasted before having full sleeves.
  7. @ironchef - Hard to say. Outlining had some brutal spots for sure. Tebori doesn't hurt anymore in my mind, but it can be mentally trying when you lay there for 2 hours and then look in the mirror and think to yourself "that's all we got done today!" One thing I will mention is that I highly recommend wearing headphones when getting tebori done. I found the squishing sound to be unbearable after while.

  9. Mine is also an Ed Hardy story. Moved from Boston to S.F. in 2001. I hadn't been tattooed in a while but was starting to get back into it. Ed was still tattooing, but not as often, and he wasn't cheap. I managed to get on his list and got called a while later, just as I had been laid off. So, I politely declined because I thought rent and food was more important. Ugh.
  10. The Crumbsuckers were great back in the day. I never saw Burn, but also never really got into them. They emerged around the time I started my hiatus from the hardcore scene.
  11. @daveborjes I haven't seen them since 89, but he definitely wasn't plugged in then!
  12. Tim sounds like he had a stroke. Vinnie cracks me up. Dude hasn't plugged his guitar in for probably close to 30 years now.
  13. @SeeSea I don't track time very closely on my tattoos but it's probably around 10 hours now. Pro-tip - I'm not sure what part of your body you're getting done, but I strongly suggest wearing headphones. The sound of your skin being repeatedly punctured can make you mental.
  14. The latest pic from my tebori odyssey. https://instagram.com/p/1gWX9JsVE5/?taken-by=horitomo_stateofgrace
  15. @BrianH if they are heavily tattooed and know what a full back piece entails I'll show them all the goods. Otherwise I usually just show the top and listen to all the comments about how they can't believe someone would get their ass tattooed.
