  1. @Cork Depending on how work goes, I'd love to drop in on your session. I love Johan's work!
  2. @Lance Hey buddy! nothing planned at the moment for my torso. Not sure if I can stand the pain and I kinda like the front as a bit of blank slate for the moment. I'm sure I'll get tired of it and have the itch again to get it tattooed. We'll see.
  3. Henning requested pics of my healed back with a black background. Believe it or not, it was tough finding large enough black material like a curtain or spool of cloth but luckily my local dry cleaner had something I could borrow. I had to email him LARGE files because he may publish the photos in something. Fun looking at all the details. Maximize your browser!
  4. Rubendall and Henning said I "buck the Asian stereotype" of having no ass :D
  5. @Fala About 7 1/2 hours. First 5 hours were okay. The last two were really tough. I hate spine and rib work...just the worst!
  6. @Fala Yoni stopped by Kings Avenue Bowery during my session with Henning!
  7. @omeletta I'll post up a video after I'm done healing. I also picked up Rubendall's fingerwave prints! I have them framed and hanging in my bedroom!
  8. Wrapped up my collaboration back piece with Henning Jorgensen and Mike Rubendall this past Tuesday. I posted up a ton of pics in the Full Back Piece thread. So happy to have it finished and amazed by the final product! Enjoy!
  9. Well it's been a year since I've had my back worked on and per our usual fall schedule, Henning was in town and this time we FINISHED my back! Some of you might have seen the updates via Instagram. So happy with this collaboration between Henning and Rubendall being completed! WARNING, PIC HEAVY!!! Put your browser on FULL SCREEN! The master himself, Henning Jorgensen. Such a great artist and humble man. Filling in the phoenix...tail feathers, breast, head and a few touch ups here and there. Such a pleasure watching Henning work. I was so stoked with the zebra/tiger striped pattern he chose for the remaining tail feathers. Touch up on a tender spot...the spare tire. Slowly getting there. Details details details... Close-up of the phoenix...beautiful! Full view from my right side. There was poor lighting inside since it was dark out, so they propped me up on a table and surrounded me with lights. A quick reminder of the work Mike Rubendall did on the lower half of this collaboration. LOVE his water! Another angle of my lower half. Here's the finished top half. Finished full back in all it's glory. My back is a sea of colors! Hope everyone enjoyed my show and tell! (don't mind the feet on the left or right, hahaha)
  10. @suburbanxcore Travis is no longer at KA? I haven't been by since last year. What happened?
  11. This O'Donnell back piece is still mind blowing in my eyes
  12. smooth as eggs @misterJ ! tell rubes, ricky wong says what's up!?
  13. Tell me of this island called Staten :p
  14. @a1steaks Was it worse being lined with a machine on the torso or is the tebori beating you up more?
  15. Here's a shot of inside of my left thigh. Purple is my underwear. Bottom is the backpiece and top is the front thigh piece. Hope that helps in getting a sense of how "deep" things can go:
  16. Matt Ahn who works out of Invisible on Orchard Street, I believe is Vietnamese. Also I believe the owner or main tattooer at Inkman out in Brooklyn is of Vietnamese decent. Good luck!
  17. @beez I want to get a snake now because of your AWESOME back!!!
  18. @BrianH I'm not one to be afraid of pulling off my shirt and dropping my pants but being self aware, I usually just show a pic from my smartphone first. Some people want to see it in the flesh and I would start with the shirt and depending on where the conversations lead, usually show my ass off too.
  19. @BrianH @Diehardonvhs You two are DESTROYING this thread!!! WHOA!!!!!!
  20. Parents Get Tattoo Of Daughter's Birthmark So She Won't Feel Different
  21. @Graeme INSANELY GOOD! You guys are moving at break neck speed on this back piece!
  22. For those in the NYC area, this looks to be very promising and amazing. A friend of mine works at Ronin and gave me the advance press release. Sorry about the PDF, it was the only way I could attach the press kit.
  23. This is a piece by Justin Weatherholtz at Kings Avenue. I saw it in person. Basically, this client had an acne issue and went to a dermatologist for an acne treatment shot. Problem was he turned out to be allergic to the medication and it scarred up the acne pretty badly. Justin tattooed in the scars and used the texture of the scarred skin to create an almost 3D effect. The blacks/greys in the water....that's scar dimpling and cavities that got filled in.
