  1. I said a similar thing on here about a year ago when my boss at the time made some comment about me being 'pretty heavily tattooed'. Sure, compared to him and other people in the office I had a lot of tattoos. But compared to people here or people I hung out with I was still pretty green. Now I've gotten something on my ribs and that was a personal landmark. May sound weird but now I feel like I've graduated a level in being tattooed. Soon I too will go below the elbows. For some reason I felt that I needed to have some torso work done before I did that though.
  2. Thanks man, appreciate it. Not my first merry go round. I never liked what I do all that much but I found myself with a family to support and it paid the bills. Marriage had been in rough shape for a even before I took the job in TX. I had given up but was supporting everyone while my wife and daughters were in school. Everyone just graduated and now she wants to try to pull it together again. She accepted a great job out near SF. I don't know if I have the energy to try to keep trying anymore. I thought I would avoid that mid life crisis thing by being wild when I was in my 20s and what not. Guess it all caught up with me anyway.
  3. Lol, thanks @Gingerninja. I was texting with a friend in Dallas while I was there and she said "You are loaded and unhappy. I am destitute and having the time of my life. There's got to be an in between." Gotta figure something else out. That conference was in Atlanta. It was warm, I wore shorts the second day. That was fun.
  4. Man, I was going to post in here about how much I dislike where i'm at right now. I have a job/career that lots of people dream about and I hate it. Went to a conference yesterday and realized I was surrounded by an ocean of khaki pants and button down shirts and wondered how I got to this place. Took a job in NH and I just haven't been able to find people up here. Just kinda suckin' right now. Been living away from my wife for about 18 months now and a part of me thinks it is time to throw in the towel on that relationship. F***. Not in a good place,
  5. So, I'm in Atlanta for a software conference and it let out earlier than I expected and I found myself with an afternoon with nothing to do. Browsed the interwebs for shops close by and didn't see anything promising. Just as I was about to give up and found one that looked good and ran over and got this done. It is a really bad pic but you get the idea. It wraps a bit so I doubt I will ever rally get a good shot. Tattoo by Stenvik Moström @stenviking_libertytat2
  6. So I'm searching about the interwebs for artists in NH and I come across this guy in Portsmouth, about 45 min from me. http://www.hobostattoo.com/andrew-stortz/ I'm thinking his stuff is pretty solid so I go to look up his IG and it turns out he is also Klaude Cloud. Perhaps I will have to take a little drive.
  7. So, for years here I've heard y'all talk about Aquaphor and didn't think much of it. I didn't think it could be much different from anything else. Well I was walking through the drug store the other day, just as my ribs were getting crusty, and saw that it was on sale so I grabbed a little tube. Holy crap, that make healing a whole different experience. Why had I not listened to you guys sooner?
  8. So, when I got done with that piece on my ribs Tuesday I walked out of the shop thinking "That was intense, that should do me for a while" But then I woke up the next day thinking "That was a pretty awesome looking mace they had drawn up hanging on the wall. I wonder if they are just waiting for someone to get that?" Turns out they had just put that on someone but I was kinda surprised that after the most painful session I have had I was ready to jump back in before it had even scabbed up. I feel like I'm about to go on a run of a bunch of tattoos in really short order.
  9. I think I found my wall at about 2 hours on the ribs. Thanks Ashley @senslessadornments
  10. I should have something for this thread tomorrow. Need to get some sleep.
  11. First rib tattoo coming up on Tuesday. Should be an experience. I've been trying to tell the people in the office that Tattoo Tuesdays would be a great morale booster but they just laugh and blow me off. Guess this will show 'em.
  12. Excited for this one. I've got a spot for a serpent, waiting........
