  1. Hello Bud... That is all you can do in life, and try to be the best that you can.... I think it is great you want to be the best for people. One thing from a client perspective, be honest!! always.... Why I say that is some tat artist will do jobs even when they know in the end the client will regret it down the road. If you think it is a bad idea on the front end tell them... if they still want to do it then it is on them.
  2. Sorry, but I don't feel sorry for this guy... He made the choice. No one forced him to do it... We all make decisions in our lives, some good and some bad... But to say he was taken advantage of, is just out right silly... He could have said no.. And if I remember the story correctly from the actual start, it was him who approached these companies to do this. Not the other way around. We all have regrets at some point in life... He just made some rather poor choices early on.... There is no one to blame but himself in my opinion. and now that he made these stupid decisions, he has to blame a
  3. Well just a quick update, I have sent my rough draft off to two different tat artists, one in Chicago which is supposed to be really good, and the other Joe Shit recommended to me in my area. I have to admit, the artist Joe recommended looks to be an absolutely fantastic artist.... So, I will see what these two gentlemen have to offer and I will pass along the input and hopefully a more refined rendition of my sketch. A big thanks goes out to Joe for all of his research and recommendations!!!! Thanks Bud!!!! And Semper Fi....
  4. Thanks once again Graeme, I totally agree about education.... This will obviously be a longer adventure than I actually thought. I will be checking out several places and asking a lot of questions... thanks to you and this site I am looking at this project in a completely new light.
  5. Thanks Graeme, I thought his site looked rather weak myself. But then found most of his work on Facebook. Again, some look really good then others I have to raise an eyebrow at. But then, how much of the really bland ones are what the customer wanted??? dunno... But on a different note, A friend of mine was a professional tattoo artist in Chicago. If I knew where he was today I would go to him... But anyway, he always harped on the quality of ink most use. He only bought the best and the work he did was almost in your face BOLD... With that said, what questions should be asked about the i
  6. Thanks for your replies Joe... I'm not going to go B&G because I am going to do a cover up. So I believe color is the best option. I actually like B&G but really for this one, I think coloring it will make it stand out and pop... Even though my rough draft isn't in color, that was my original thinking in the end. Going to add the helmet to the memorial, and the continents in the globe tonight. Tomorrow going to take my Daughter to the guy she likes and see if he think he could do this. At worst, have a little better felling of his true capabilities.
  7. I love Tats, but there is a point where ya got to stop and say REALLY????? Just my thoughts
  8. Thanks for your reply. I live in Northern Indiana. The major cities around me would have to be South Bend, Merrillville, Valparaiso, and Hebron. Speaking of Hebron, my Daughter had a tat done at Cry Baby Tattoos. the end results look good, however I always worry about ink quality. No sense in wasting money if it is faded out in a year or two. He seemed great and did a good job but I really don't know if he is all the talk. Here is the link to his site if ya want to check it out. Or, if you know anything about this place I'm all ears... http://www.crybabybodyart.com/[/CODE] Thanks ag
  9. Thanks for your reply... I live in northern Indiana. North west to be exact. Some of the major cities around me would be Portage, South bend, Merrillville, Valparaiso, And Hebron. Speaking of Hebron, My daughter had a tat done at Cry Baby Tattoo's in Hebron. End results look good but I worry about cheap ink. Here is his link if you want to check it out.

  10. Semper Fi Gunny!!!! HAHA... yup... ya can't beat the Remington M4... I was with 2/6 S.T.A. Platoon. I still today keep my skills sharp. Took my kids to the range last weekend as a matter of fact. My daughter is something to be reckoned with... Thanks for your input, I will get this put together sooner than later now that the ball is rolling....
  11. on my left for arm... due to the detail I figure it will go from my elbow to my sholder. I know i could get even more detail if i did it on my back somewhere but I want it to be seen more than not. - - - Updated - - - here is a link to the song I was talkin about... Great song... (If ya like country) But then me, I like most music...
  12. No, no artist in mind yet... Just trying to figure this out in a formal draft first. Semper Fi to your father... I was actually think about in the dog tags in the picture, putting Pvt. Mallone. After the song about the fallen solder in the Nam war.
  13. Thanks Brother... it needs lots of work still but it is an idea...
  14. Hello, I am a former Marine... I do have tats, however I never got a USMC tattoo because most are all the same. I always said, once I came up with an original Idea it would go on paper and once fine tuned, turned into a custom tat. Well, I think I am at that beginning point and could use some thoughts and outside ideas. While I was in, I lost some members of my unit. So as a tribute to not only the men we lost, but to all of our armed forces that have gave the ultimate sacrifice. So, I am starting out with the fallen solder memorial. Now here is the twist.... We were always told in
