    "Just a bum with a dream..." Big admirer of Mr. Owen, Stoney, Collins, Ernie Sutton, Tex Rowe, Mike Skiver, Raven, Thomas, Shaw, Col. Todd(!), Larry Mora, Crazy Eddie, Mike Malone, and of course deVita. Grew up on a dock as my grandfather was harbor pilot. Old school tattooing speaks to me, regardless of the times. Why do I do it? Money. What do I like about it? Stories. Into the history. Wanted to be tattooed since I was 5...

  1. If you are still active here i knew Danny Danzl. Hit me up.

  2. I learned something here too! I don`t have too much to add really. I. honestly think that certain symbols, swastikas being ine, only truly look good on someone`s back side. Speaking of Masons though, Stoney St Clair, Sailor Jerry, Milton Zeis, Apache Harry, all Masons. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  3. That`s true. Prespective would change. But even with that, people flail in odd directions. A new born might turn the hard gangster to jelly, or make someone who`s very relaxed into an uptight, maybe even callous soul. No accounting for how people will be. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  4. I know a guy, a friend, who`s parents would kill him if they found out about his tattoos. He has his torso covered, right up to.the shoulders, with nothing on his arms. I call it his "tank top". Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  5. I have a really frequent client, female, who comes in and goes, "So. I want a cutie mark." I looked at her and all that could go through my mind was, "You can`t say that in a tattoo shop..." It hurt my mind. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  6. My drummer`s mom was there? Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  7. I had a similar thing happen with the tiger on my left shoulder. Fell asleep on the couch and my a&D bonded like glue with the damn thing. When I went to roll over it felt like I got the tattoo all over again, only all at once. Needless to say I needed a touch up. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  8. Someone should retitle the thread! Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  9. My upper lower inner arm.bruises pretty bad. I read that, and even I have tough time following it. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  10. This is a pretty good thread. Lot of thought here. I guess the wipe would irritate more, and of course the factors of what kind of machines you might be running, the skill level of the artist (and by that I don`t mean how she/he can draw. I mean the art of applying a colored wound) and where your mind is too. Maybe that`s really it. Where is your head at? Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  11. Im starting to think Im a real wuss. I did my thighs myself and it not only hurt, it made me a little sick feelin`. You`re right though. Upper arms don`t hurt much. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  12. My wife said the same thing. Didn`t hurt her at all. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  13. For me, outside of the forearms. It either doesn`t hurt, or Im skin dead. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  14. One thing I try not to do is argue. I base what I will and won`t do on a few factors. Mainly how much of done it and how much it bugs me to. But I respect your position, Margarita. I have never been an artist. Im a tattoo artist. A bum, but the high end of bum. Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
  15. That`s true, but its oft the client. Bad after care. I remember reading a Zeke Owens column about Sailor Jerry and aftercar. The Old Man was of a mind that he gave good tattoos. But once the guy got out the doir he "bath in salt water ir gasoline". Cant make people try! But that pony was brand new, and I just hope the poor, palsey ridden artist had health insurance Sent from my SCH-S968C using Tapatalk
