  4. The getting stared at in the store for being 25 and buying 3 tubes of prep h thing has happened to me.
  5. Lately I have been thinking I'd like to get both my kneecaps done at the same time by 2 different people. My wife thinks that there is a logistical issue with this in that one of the artists would need to be left handed so that they weren't working on top of each other, or one of them would have to be between my legs. Has anyone had this done? Is it possible? Artists, I need some input!
  6. I'm not gonna read through all 20 pages here to see in anyone has mentioned it, but I use Preparation H. Yeah, hemerrhoid cream. I was up at Adrenaline in Vancouver a little while back and Justin Cox turned me on to it. I was telling him about how I always had problems with big, thick scabs and up to that point I had never had a tattoo heal that didn't bleed out a little.

  12. Gypsy woman on my right triceps by Matt Lentz at Under the Needle in Seattle.
  13. My name is Ben, and I'm from New Hampshire.

Hoping this site will make planning vacations easier in the future! Cheers.
