  1. Alex Pardee did that as a painting the day after Sheen did the whole 20/20 interview. He made prints the next day, and I believe someone made a shirt out of it as well. It may still be available on his website too.
  2. I love Daniel Albrigo's black and grey roses.
  3. I love Stewart Robson's tattoos. I really enjoy Chris O'Donnell's tattoos as well. His blog is CHRIS O'DONNELL SAVED TATTOO Blog I forgot to add Mike Shea too. He's probably my favorite tattooer right now. Mike Shea Redemption Tattoo Blog
  4. Jon is awesome! You can also say hello to Julio while you're there.
  5. I've had a few stupid things happen over the years. I broke/dislocated my finger playing catch in high school. The football jammed my finger so hard it actually broke my knuckle, and popped it out of the socket in one move. My finger is still kind of crooked because of it. My best stupid injury was breaking my foot slipping off a curb. I slipped on a waxed curb, and broke the ball of my foot behind my big toe, into two pieces. The doctors told me they could either put two pins in it to keep it together, or take half of it out and leave the other half, and hope it grows back. They also told me both solutions aren't guaranteed to help the problem, so I left it. No one believes me that I broke my foot that way, since I'm not very clumsy, everyone just assumed I did it skateboarding. Unfortunately, it's a true story, and I get shit about it every once in awhile.
  6. All I do is wash it with anti-bacterial soap, and unscented hand lotion (green top aveeno), and my tattoos heal up just fine.
  7. Thanks a lot to both of you for your information. I think a left handed machine will be in my near future, just to see if it does make a big difference in my tattooing.
  8. Since I'm left handed, I thought this might be a good topic. How many of you guys are left handed tattooers, and if you are, do you use left handed machines? I've never used one, but does it make that big of a difference? I've only been tattooing for a few years, and never really thought about it until recently, but does anyone else have experience using them?
  9. There's a really cool article about Russian prison tattoos in Tattoo Artist Magazine #16, written by Valery Sibrikov.
  10. Tattoo Artist Magazine just posted an article about him on their blog, I'll try to find it, or if anyone else has a link for it, please share. I just found it. http://www.tattooartistmagazineblog.com hope that works.
  11. Nice article. I'm a big fan of collecting shoes as well. It's been awhile since I've purchased anything too crazy though. I still enjoy Dunks, which seem to have lost their appeal over the past few years.
  12. Pooh and Sam Bielinski do nice script here in Milwaukee. I also Like Ricardo's script, he did my collarbone at Atomic a few years ago. Most tattooers here do hate lettering tattoos though, it seems like everyone gets the same font, but I'll take it all day. I'd rather do a lettering tattoo than nothing at all.
  13. Chris O'Donnell, Chris Garver, Dana Helmuth does some really nice tigers too.
  14. I didn't think the stomach was too bad, I'd compare it to getting your lower arms tattooed, some spots sucked, but it wasn't unbearable. For me, the left side of the body doesn't hurt as bad, maybe its because I'm left handed. Near my nipples really hurt, it felt like they were getting pulled off while getting tattooed. My legs in general bug me, they always seem to take forever to heal. I have my right knee cap tattooed, and that didn't really bother me, only spot that really sucked was near the top, by the thigh.
  15. I did read those, and I don't really expect much out of anyone. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this method, and if its worked out for them. I'm not looking for anything technical, just some basic answers. I'm gonna try it regardless, just wondering if its worked out for someone else, or hasn't worked.
  16. One of the guys I used to work with worked at a really sketchy shop, so he used to keep his tubes completely separate from anyone elses in the shop. He would take all of his dirty tubes to his dentist, and he would autoclave them for him every week, and he would get tattooed in return. He collected full sleeves from him, and many of his assistants had visible tattoos as well. In Milwaukee, its pretty common to see people with hand tattoos and neck tattoos.
  17. One of the guys that I work with, has expressed interest in building a few machines. I've always been interested in building machines, and metal work has been something that I always had fun doing. My question for you guys, since I know there are a few machine builders here, is have you ever used frames that you had cut from a water jet machine? I have a buddy that runs a shop, and he has said he would like to help us out, by cutting a few frames that way for us. Were trying to weigh the pros and cons of this. Has anyone tried this?
  18. My name is Drew, and I'm from Milwaukee, WI. I've only been tattooing for about a year, having gone through a traditional apprenticeship (lots of drawing and scrubbing toilets). Thanks for setting up such a great website, where new comers such as myself, can learn new things from tattooers that I may not be able to from otherwise.
