  1. Jut finished my Valkyrie tattoo a week ago. While at work the other day one of my coworkers asked me if the girl tattooed on my arm was supposed to be me... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. My newest tattoo is currently in the peeling stage. Can I just say that I hate putting lotion on peeling skin it feels so icky ugh. I put lotion on it in the morning and that's it. Thankfully my artist instructions were no ointment, and start putting on a light amount of lotion after 3 days. Easy, low-maintenance healing routine. Can't argue with that.

  3. My artist and I were just talking about this last weekend. She was excited to get to be doing a cool tattoo and that I let her take the reins on design. She said most people come in with an overcomplicated idea packed with meaning and symbology and they usually want it to be small, or smaller than it should be; it's hard to get them to understand that it won't all translate into a good tattoo. She even had someone stop in while I was there who wanted a very specific tattoo in a specific (small) size and she had to tell them that in a few years it would just look like a blob.

  4. Finished up my Valkyrie tattoo yesterday. Couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Beautiful work by Megon Shore at Fist Full of Metal in Seattle.

    Book thread

    I will have to check out this book. I like a good space opera. Larry Correia's books are a guilty pleasure of mine. I've read all his monster hunter books lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah ever since I got my Valkyrie, which takes up almost the entire upper half of my arm, I've had to change my wardrobe a bit for work. I don't have to search out all long sleeves but I now have to wear longer sleeves than before, and I didn't realize how many of my work shirts just had those shoulder cap sleeves. Oh well. It's worth it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. I just got a crow tattooed, well a Valkyrie with a crow sitting on her shoulder. I say go for it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have an appointment coming up with Megon Shore at Fist Full of Metal. Really excited about it. Doing a viking warrior woman (or shield maiden, if you prefer) with a crow on her shoulder. It will be my first color tattoo! And she does awesome color. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Foot Tattoo

    Nice! For me the actual tattoo on the foot was worse than the healing. I'm not much of a sweller (is that even a word?) but I think a lot of that is because I drink lots of water. I didn't have pain problems after either. The knee was worse, felt like I had road rash for a couple days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That thing was pretty bad...I couldn't get past the egg-shaped negative space on it's forehead. That elephant definitely had a cut and paste feel to it but I would rather wear that then have that horribly drawn melting mask tattooed on me forever. An ugly drawing tattooed well is still an ugly tattoo.
  14. I pretty much listen to Bob Marley and Jack Johnson all day, or more accurately the Jack Johnson station on Pandora. Music has to be office-safe while at work.
