  1. Upcoming Tattoos

    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.
  2. Viva

    It's not a tattoo event but is anyone gonna be at Viva next week?
  3. Sometimes we get untattooed!

    Holy Shit!!! I was gonna say "ouch", or something like that, now all my thoughts seem inadequate.
  4. 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.

  8. Upcoming Tattoos

    I know the feeling. I'm less than two weeks from my next appointment with Chad.
  9. What's your longest tattoo session?

    Damn, and I'm sitting here proud that I made it through 3 hours on my ribs. Y'all are funckin' amazing.
  10. Upcoming Tattoos

    Chad Koeplinger is coming back to NH next month and I was able to get in with him again. Gonna work on something for the rest of the forearm where he made a torch last year.
  11. Deep scab normal or not?

    I agree with @Hogrider nothing to do but let it heal. I've had a couple of tattoos scab like that. They were both done by very experienced and and well known tattooers to the people on this board. Sometimes shit happens. I would expect a good bit of pigment to fall out with the scab but that can always be touched up or left to look even more unique.
  12. Forearm "Life changing" ?

    I have similar thoughts sometimes. Glad it's not just me.
  13. Upcoming Tattoos

    I've been talking to Ashley Matthias, the woman who did the cat and some others on me, about drawing up a logo and business cards for my little side vintage resale business. As we were talking a mentioned that the cat is kinda lonely all by itself so I think we are going to make a vintage sci-fi stylized rocket to go with it. Should be fun.
