  1. Yeah, I was totally bummed that the month I was going to enter it was cancelled. :(

    @ironchef - wow. Just wow. Wow. It's hard to believe the last time you had work done was a year ago. It doesn't seem that long ago that I saw the gorgeous orange of the feathers and drooled over the composition. Seeing it finished like this is mind-blowing! The colors are amazing - over the top but not a mess. I appreciate that the design is not as busy as some backpieces which IMO sometimes has a stronger impact. Boy, the more I hang around here, the more back-crushes I have, and this is one of them. Congratulations on an amazing piece, and for finally being finished!
  3. Thanks! Nope, I haven't. I don't want to attempt a marathon unless I could do it in less than 5ish hours. My "first" marathon on Saturday took about 7.5 hours, then a break, and I split the second marathon distance into an 18 and an 8 with a break in the middle. Funny how an ultra can be easier than a marathon in some regards ;) Yes, the race was very well organized. I'm signing up for May - hope to see you there!
  4. Ran my first ultramarathon - 53 miles! I was pretty surprised I made 50 miles without major trouble, and pushed out a couple more to make it an even double marathon. It was an awesome experience and I'm already planning to do it again in the spring. I think something is wrong with my head ;)

    tattoo ingredients and safety

    Thanks for the link, @Fala. I'm going to see if I can get it from work.
  6. No, this is One Day at the Fair - same exact setup as Three Day. If I survive, maybe I'll see you in May!
  7. I'm not sure if I should post this here or in Shitting Things. Looking at winter races and having this weekend open, I succumbed to a free registration and an encouraging welcome from a bunch of friendly runners I've never met and signed up for a 24 hour ultra. As in, running for 24 hours on a 1 mile loop with 136 other folks. It's this Saturday/Sunday and I'm questioning the idiocy of this decision.

    @soraya Yeah, I know what you mean. I was confused at the previous comment about skin breaks versus wall-to-wall color. Mine is wall-to-wall with no skin breaks and it makes no sense to me why a skin break would make things "hold up" better. I think the example you showed is beautiful, but I haven't seen examples like that that have aged. I'd be curious to see that.

    You said skin breaks. You didn't say hard outline. That's a different story.

    I don't understand - what you do mean by this - "hold up better"?

    Greetings! New to tattoos, but not for long.

    Welcome! If she doesn't want you to bring in pictures of other people's tattoos because she wants you to know she doesn't copy, then that's one thing. If she doesn't want you to bring in one to share elements that you like and what you don't, then that seems kind of stifling. What's the difference between showing a tattoo that has elements you like and showing a picture that has elements that you like? I dunno. IMO, if you have pictures of tattoos that illustrate some aspect of what you are looking for, then bring them and explain that. But you'd probably better bring in other references too. The bit about not riffing or those who do aren't good artists is a little black and white. A lot of great flash is variations on a theme. Copying an obvious custom piece is a no-no.

    No problem, I didn't take it that way.

    Ha - there is a "parody" site: https://www.facebook.com/Christianity-against-tattoos-413025322192930/ Kinda makes me embarrassed to be a Christian.
