  1. Those that copy due to laziness of not wanting to draw up or freehand a design. Are pretty silly as it takes much longer to copy something exact then it does an original you make up and fix mistakes as you go. Ive had my work stolen many times in the past so understand the frustration. There is even a shop that excusivly used my work in all thier advertising to get known and I actually lost in court. (Can explain but will be a long read) There are those Artists who give credit and praise to the original creator and admit copying. (I actually have some respect for these Artists, or tribute Art
  2. Some good advice and thank you. The worse part for me was spending a few hours drawing up sketches and he didnt even mention them. Suddenly he want some other tattoo we never discussed fixed. I ended up telling the guy to get lost after calling the tattoo Artist that did that piece he wanted fixed. The Artist does nice clean work but this guy moved around a lot, and didnt do any of the proper after care, went swimming for hours the next day so scabbed up and lost patches of the tattoo. I believe the Artist from looking at the thing. Hes getting bad mouthed when I can clearly see he is a serio
  3. A customer wanted me to come up with a bunch of designs for a sleve he wants me to do. I took the time to sketch up about 7 different desing ideas based on what he wanted. Free of charge by the way because he is a friend of a friend. lol Anyways I send him all the designs via email and text. I follow up with a "Did you get my designs?" He replies "Yes I got your designs can you fix and clean up the wizard tattoos on my other Arm first.. I told him that I would do my own designs on his other Arm in which I took the time to design. I will also change anything in my deisgns you dont like. However

    Flaming skull bike

    Customer wanted an original Skull and flame bike with some spiders. Being original with Skuls and flames is not all that easy. We noticed there were no side views of the punisher skull anywhere so created a side view version.
  7. The latest tattoo I did on an Asian guy that had quite the out look on life. He studies Noam Chonsky and was a Marvel comic book nut. Its fun getting to know people during a tattoo though many dont talk much so its a nice change to get to know how others live thier lives.
  8. Very impressed with your weight loss! I myself am struggling with it and need to do something soon. I like funny and cute tattoos that have meaning. My snoopy watch tattoo is of snoopy hugging the little bird and there are no hands on the watch. There was a time when I was working 18 hours a day 7 days a week. I was obsessed with it. Then I realized I wasnt spending any time with my kids. The watch for me means its time for my kids. I havnt had a real watch since and my kids have also greatly benifited from my life change. If you like a cute and sort of funny tattoo. How about a fit and hip s
  9. The full side view would limit detail compared to the front on horses the bigger the head ofthe horse the more detail can be put into the tattoo. When adding flames I like the one with the black smoke behind it. Black smoke behind and even bits in between flames makes them much more realisitic if that is the look you want. Im also not 100% sure I like the horses flaming tail as that can end up looking like a fart on fire even though it is obvious what it is. The full flame main is not bad either but may look better with some black main showing through or make it look like the main is on fire r
  10. I tivo the show myself and find it pretty entertaining. Ive been aproached a few times over the years with offers to do reality shows. Actually got as far as post production a couple times. Amazing how many shows get cut just before production or even during production. I feel most sorry for the writers as they work for free until after the show is aired and they are selling commercial spots. It usually takes them a year or two before getting to the post production part. then there is a huge chance it will get cut for what ever reason. Interesting thing I didnt realize before actually being in

    Hulk tattoo I just did on customers calf
  12. Very touchy subject I have actually been to court for. It use to really bother me when others would not only copy my work. But they would use my actual work for their advertising. Its even trickier with tattoo work as many assume it is all fair game. These are reasons/excuses I have heard. Isnt tattoo flash all about copying other Artists work? (My answer: Yes but I purchased that flash and have permission to use) Anything on the net is fair game! I suppose if you water mark the work then it is an implied copyright of sorts.However some judges will even laugh that out of court. There was a cas
