    I don't get to go to Pagoda this year but I did have a little thing done yesterday. Great thing about working with the same person over a period of time. I brought a co worker to her for her first tattoo a few weeks ago and we were talking and she came up with the idea of a vintage suitcase (perfect for me). Didn't really know what to expect and this is what she came up with. She remembered my three most common travel destinations. How can you not be grateful for people like that.

    Pagoda City 2018

    I can bring my percolator and make some really tasty coffee for the morning. (I am a bit of a vintage nerd)

    Pagoda City 2018

    Yep, I'll be there. Driving down from NH Fri night so not sure when I will get there. I have an appointment with Marina Sat late. Nothing else planned at this point. Would be good to set something else from Scott. My daughters live in Oakland and I went to Black Heart during one visit and Cody Miller made a nice ship on my ribs, but then I felt bad about using visit time for a tattoo and decided I just need to catch up with those guys in other places.

    Upcoming Tattoos

    I think I might be done, at least with big stuff, for a bit. I've got a few little ideas in my head that I might do but that might be it for a while. The amount of free skin I have left has really shrunk over the last couple years and I really should think out what, and who, for the rest of it. And then @suburbanxcore mentions Pagoda, which seems to be the place fir me to cross paths with Marina, so perhaps it is just a pause until Pagoda. For fun here is a pic of what Chad did to my arm a couple weeks ago, I've tried to post it a couple times but it was giving me trouble.

    I don't have a good pic at the moment but go look at Chad's story to see what he did on the inside of my bicep today. https://www.instagram.com/chadkoeplingertattoo/

    I'm going to Nashville Boogie next month so while I'm there I'm stopping into Chad's shop and we will do some more work on my arm. Haven't seen his shop before, should be fun.

    Sometimes we get untattooed!

    Holy Shit!!! I was gonna say "ouch", or something like that, now all my thoughts seem inadequate.

    Cover Up Advice

    Many people have said things much more eloquently than I can but I like the tattoo. I've had a few tattoos that I got when I was young that were bad (think home made Walkman motor machine bad). I wore those for over 20 years before I was able to cover them. They were bad, and I hated them, but a part of me misses them. My solution now to tattoos I might not like as much as I thought I would is just more tattoos. New tattoos are fun and they eventually obfuscate the one you don't like. Just my thoughts as reading through, do what makes you happy. If the tattoo causes you pain, get rid of it.
