  3. just got this hand/knife done on saturday on the 'ol thigh, studio city tattoo in Los Angeles image url
  4. Nice! Looks awesome. I'm about to finish up a traditional sleeve myself. Are you going to do any filler?
  5. Welcome! Tattoo looks good, the black doesn't really look out of place, never would have guessed it wasn't supposed to be there until you mentioned it. And I agree with the others, tattoos can have kind of a "oh crap" shock no matter how much you wanted it or like it.. I think its just natural.
  6. Welcome man! Vegas is another world.. Actually just passed up an opportunity to meet a couple buds there tonight :/ I dig the tattoo! As for the other piece, why not save your money from laser and just keep it as a reminder of a certain stage in your life, and use that money for the next project :)
  7. Love the color on that dragon.. Coming from a black/grey man haha. Welcome

    Welcome! I believe the general consensus would say wait a solid month for that guy to heal, before doing any extreme exercises.. Especially since its in a pivot zone.
  9. Ahhh I see now.. Yeah I completely agree. I have actually found that last one on google a while ago and thought something looked off. So far I've only got two spots where there's a significant amount of space left.. If I do decide to do filler I'll put something there before doing the filler. Thanks man
  10. Wow that's good stuff man! I dig the chest piece. I read a few times in the thread posted above about stars and dots done "properly".. Do you happen to have any examples of proper stars and dots versus an incorrect way?
  11. Thanks! The place is called Studio City Tattoo.. It's pretty much in the north Hollywood area. My original compass was done by a guy named Jose Menendez.. I enjoyed the experience so much that I went back to him for the whole arm. He's done a great job of putting my ideas on paper.
  12. I actually did read that, but can't post in there since I'm still a noob :( As soon as I'm able, I'll be venturing that way though. Thanks!
  13. Thanks guys! Been chipping away at it slowly the past 5 months or so, I'll be happy to finally have it all finished. Maybe once I see the finished product it will be an easier decision to go with filler or leave it negative spaced.

  15. Hello all, I stumbled across this forum and it is right up my alley, so I figured I'd jump in the action! I'm Greg, 26, living in Los Angeles. After years of waiting (mainly being scared) I finally got my first tattoo about 8 months ago, a traditional style compass on my inner bicep. After that I was bit by the bug, like most, and started planning an entire theme for the same arm. The dilemma was, as much as I love traditional style tattoos, I have always been a fan of black and grey over color. So I made a big decision and decided I'm doing my entire arm black and grey. I haven't come across any others like it, and so far it is coming out awesome, and it tends to spark a good amount of interest/compliments As of now the entire arm is lined (not so "traditional", I know), and the complete forearm is done. I go in this weekend to finish everything else, and I will post more detailed pics of the rest afterwards. I did have one question though, that I've been thinking about for a while now: do I go ahead and go balls out with stars and dots filler, or would that drown out the detail of each piece, seeing as they're already dark in color? I can appreciate negative space just as much as filler. I'm posting from my phone, so I don't think I can attach images.. But I do have a few in my gallery. All were taken right after the work was done, the roses almost look blue/greenish, but healed up to a nice light grey.
