  1. hey all, i figured this is the best place to post this. i dont like soliciting but i feel this is a little different.

    so... my girlfriend is the new york fostering and adoption coordinator for an organization called "best friends". they are based out of utah and have branched out to new york recently. in the upcoming weeks they will be starting their campaign to place rescued pets in good homes. if anyone knows of anyone looking to adopt and/or foster pets in the new york and/or surrounding areas can you please contact kristia@bestfriends.org

    she has been involved with animal rescque and law enforcement for over a decade and would greatly appreciate the help with finding these amazing animals good homes.

    sorry if no one wanted to read this and if it breaks any forum policies.

    thanks :)

  2. @cltattooing, oh stop please! you're killing me! I saw a web article earlier about last night. I barely resisted. I must resist scrolling over your post! I musssst! The agonizing thing is I don't have cable TV, so will have to wait 6 months or however how long it takes to come out on itunes, to see this season. I'm just barely watching season 3 now. Please people, don't tell me someone pivotal dies in season 3! Ssssigh...

    On the other hand it's episode 2, so how climactic can it be? As long as they don't kill Arya, I think I'm okay. If they do, it's over for me. I'm waiting for her to turn into a super ninja face changing assassin or one f'ed up nut job covered in gore, holding everyone's heads. I'm good with either.

    I'm so tempted to see what you posted, cltattooing. Damn you!!! Ha ha! ;-)

    no cable tv? solarmovie.so

    there are pop ups but they have every episode youll want. even the new ones come on line with hours of release.

    you have to always click on the smallest button on the page that says continue to movie...its a hassle to learn but once you get the hang of it its no problem at all

    better for macs than pcs

  3. No, that makes perfect sense! Your work very much looks your own. They were just very small things that got me thinking, like the way you move some strokes, your saturation, and shapes/movement. I think it is cool when you can visibly note influences, it kind of provides a window to the artist's tastes and who they are outside of the art. It's also totally inevitable for influences to show through anyone's work and doesn't even necessarily imply copying.

    Anyway, your paintings are great and I would totally be interested in prints if you make any!

    thanks :) if you go to my website tattooerman.com and click on the art section you will most of the stuff i have available for prints. then you can email me from there and we can get it sorted if youre interested

    thanks again happy holidays

    @G.Uristti the direction you have taken your paintings is amazing. That wolf head and dagger rocks!

    thanks so much

    all the best

  4. if I may ask, are you at all influenced by Timothy Hoyer's work?

    (I notice very subtle similarities, definitely took me a second look to pick up on it. Just curious!)

    its hard to say. i normally set out to do the exact opposite of what inspires me for the soul purpose of trying to bring something of my own to the table.

    i definitely love his tattooing from the late 90's and early 2000's( i started tattooing in 97-98) and have always loved his painting. the little that ive seen of what he does now still gets me going but i dont try to emulate it consciously. there are so many things that are floating in the back of my head. i honestly can say that what i like the most, is the art that would be associated with metal. specifically heavy metal magazine but i cant stand most metal. puss head, biz, frank frazetta... shit like that. i also like the classics. my whole point to to build off of history. to copy your contemporaries just helps you produce whats popular which is definitely necessary to survive.

    i have more thoughts but i cant sort them right now. kinda feel like i jumbled a bunch of shit together to answer your question. :p

    ive been doing off beat weird shit for a long time took a long ass break to clear my head from family shit so im just getting back to where i feel i should of been a few years ago... see im rambling again

    anyway hope i answered your question lol

    heres a couple more

  5. Ever since the beginning of mankind ppl have plunged head long into the unknown. I'm sure countless sailors met watery graves perfecting boats, same with airplanes and cars, not to mention discovering new lands.

    To relate this somewhat to tattooing, I'm sure even the greatest tattooers, painters and artists did bad work before finally getting it right. These things are not 'life and death' if you will but no great things come without great mistakes.

    Again, I won't be applying for this, I have a great life including a beautiful wife and daughter, a great family and decent job, but the idea that we(the human race) is about embark on expanding life if exciting to me. :shrug:

    i understand what youre getting at i cant say i dont agree with you. i just feel like the one difference between your comparisons is that there was always a glimmer of hope. on one hand it feels like, hey jump in this "boat" it might sink but just in case, make sure you can swim.

    on the other hand it just feels like, hey dopey get on this rocket and you wont come back.

    if that makes any sense at all.

  6. There's a chance it could end in some kind of painful death but there's also a chance it could be something significant for mankind.

    Really hard to say, but it feels interesting, intriguing and possibly significant, so if you had nothing to tie you down here, why not I guess lol

    dont you think you could just hold your breath and die here on earth? where are all the supplies gonna come from?

  7. some girl came into the shop where i work yesterday, asking about getting a small feather tattooed by her eye (to match one in her only other tattoo we could see, on the back of her neck)... before being turned away, she was also asking if anyone in the shop did UV tattoos, and talking all about how they take 10 years off of your life, because the ink is so toxic.

    this person is the reason for birth control
