    Please don't take this the wrong way--or take it the wrong way, if you'd like--but you are barking up the wrong tree here. No one is going to fund you, and my reply will likely be the most polite you'll receive. And if you have to ask why, well....

    Chemical Burn got a reaction from joakim urma in the so called "worlds worst tattoo" fixed   
    It's infinitely better than it was but the hairline is wrong and now that's all I can see when I look at it. It slopes down across her face but it should be more of a square-ish shape. That area was clear in the original so it's not like the coverup artist had to cover anything with it.
    Not the best portrait in the world though I suppose he had to work with what was already there.

    I've only ever seen one nice handwriting/signature tattoo. It was on a thigh, and it was done as if the writing was on a postcard with a hand holding the postcard and some flowers around it. I wish I could remember who did it.

    My oldest daughter wanted to slam some bullshit passage down her rib panel.
    I said, sweetheart...I love you, but if you ruin prime real estate like that with shit text, I'll be forced to trade you for another daughter with more brains.
    She's 25 this year and has learned the sound advice given by her father.

    When you also consider the neck beard this guy is working on, this truly is as horrifying as it gets.

    Okay, here's mine.

    I got it when I was 17, less than a week after I decided I was getting a tattoo. For extra shit points, it's an album cover:

    The guy who did it started it and then said, "Wait, are you 18?"
    "Uh... Yeah."
    "Okay, I just have to ask."
    I actually found his portfolio online not long ago and I'd never realised how lucky I was until then. My tattoo was one of his much better pieces. The top isn't bent like that, I took the picture at a weird angle.
    I hated it for a long time but I don't think I could ever get rid of it now. It's old school as fuck.

    Hahahahahahahaha, holy fuck this is such blarney. I dunno if any of you noticed how they cut out the video right before the circle was joined but if anyone did notice, it was because the line trajectory didn't come to the origin point. I honestly don't think that anything like this will ever take off. Tattooing involves such an immense amount of critical thinking and on-the-spot decision making. Not to mention adjusting technique for various skin types, stretching the skin, adjusting needle depth per area of the body, and any other number of important variables.
    Waste of money.

    Oh I've got a few, some laughable some not, but I'm definitely not ashamed of this one

    First tattoo I ever did, at Tux's studio in '99. I was so nervous telling him & his wife the night before; I asked them to meet me for coffee and got it off my chest that I was ready to do this. He tried to talk me out of it by mentioning no heath benefits, no retirement pay, high-risk occupation, "why don't you be a vet or something, much easier. That's what Alex Herman did after quitting the biz". I could not be swayed. So he said"OK, show up at the shop tmrw and you can tattoo yourself". That really surprised me, I was not expecting that. I was prepared for "what the fuck, you shouldn't be doing this get the hell outta my sight". He had a legit rep for being rather brash and didn't pull punches. Chased a few people out of the shop looking for apprenticeships.
    When I got there I realized I had no idea what to put on myself. That part had not even crossed my mind, just "Holy shit Tux is gonna let me tattoo myself". So I said, "what should I pick?"
    He handed me this one and said "That's the first one I did on myself" which may or may not be true (once upon a long time ago he did the borneo scorpion on Higgs and told him he drew it himself hahaha what a classic fibber) but I didn't ask twice. He set up 2 Percy Waters, loud as hell, told me they were worth more than my life, showed me some basic info and turned me loose. That was one of the most exciting moments ever up to that point in my tattoo experiences.
    Best design ever? no. Best job ever? No. Some good blowouts? Yup. Something I'm proud of? Most definitely.

    The first bit of my new sleeve is booked in for the 5th of April. A big baphomet on my inner forearm. I have another tattoo further up my arm that I got about a month after I turned 18 and I've been planning on getting it fixed since about a week after I got it. Really happy to finally be getting started now.
