  1. Finishing up this piece tomorrow night. Excited to finally have it finished.. It's my "getting out of the Army" present to myself.
  2. I was all set to go today, but the friends I was going with decided to get a hotel and spend the night, and I didn't want to spend the night. I have a TON of driving to do over the next two weeks (over 2000 miles in less than a week), so I didn't wanna put the extra needless miles on my car. Probably good anyway. I would've ended up spending money I didn't need to when I'm finishing my current project on Tuesday.
  3. Like I said before, a lot of the people on here spend probably a majority of their disposable income on tattoos. That's not me, and there are things I would rather spend those thousands of dollars on that other people would roll their eyes at, and that's completely ok. Even if 3-d printers do become something that people get tattoos from, I still think there will be plenty of real tattooers out there, and I still think a tattoo artist would be helpful with a 3-d printer tattoo machine for everything outside of actually doing the tattoo.
  4. You are absolutely correct, but if you put a pair of $50 mass produced loafers and a $300 pair of hand made loafers that look almost the same, or a $1500 suit tailored to you against a $200 suit off a rack that looks similar most of the general public is going to take the cheaper option because it costs them less money and they're still going to get a little value out of them. Those hand made loafers may last 10-15 years, but how many people do you know keep shoes or wear the same shoes for that long? Those $50 pair of loafers may only last a year or so, and most people will be happy with
  5. I did mean no offense by it whatsoever, and like I said, it may have been a poor choice of wording. You may be absolutely right about the way it fits the body. I'm not saying it would get rid of tattooers. I think they could still be useful as far as drawing up designs and talking through the size of the tattoo and placement, but again, the average person (myself included until more recently) has no idea about placement and what will and won't work as a tattoo. They want the image, or design or words where they want it on their body. And garbage for tattoos is relative to the person who ha
  6. I didn't mean elitist as a bad way of looking at tattoos and the culture. It may not have been the right word because I've never seen anyone get berated for not agreeing with the masses on here. But how many people look at tattoos as art appreciation? I promise you, not many if you think about how many people have tattoos as a whole. That's why I said the majority of the population doesn't care about the tattoo culture or the artistry behind getting them. They look at it as paying for a service. Which is why you hear about price haggling and trying to get discounts. I'm not broke by any
  7. I understand peoples thoughts on the artistry and creativity from a human being one of their most important things when being tattooed. However, let's be honest, a vast majority of people who get tattoos don't care about that. If I could take the image or design I wanted and could be tattooed by a machine knowing that it would be perfectly replicated the way I want it without the worry of a misspelled word, or bad lines, or shading I would be completely ok with that. But I probably don't have the same views on tattoos as a lot of people on here. It's definitely not a bad way to be about ta
  8. Just finished my first session on this piece this afternoon. Finishing up in May. Work done by Chris Chisholm at Halo Tattoo in Syracuse, NY
  9. I have no tattoos anywhere near the veins used to draw blood in the arm and when I joined the military, before leaving for basic I had to be poked 4 different times (twice in each arm) to get one vile of blood, and these were by LPN's and PA's. Sometimes there's more to it that has nothing to do with tattoos. Dehydration, having deep veins can both be issues. Even an RN in a hospital surgical unit has a problem putting an IV in me last month when I had surgery. As I am going into the nursing field after college, I really want to be good at this as possible to not cause undue stress/pain o
  10. Gonna put in my two cents on this. I currently only have one tattoo that I got almost 15 years ago, and I am starting my second one this coming Saturday, so I am by no means even close to full of tattoos (my wife has more than me), and I still consider myself a newbie on here and especially to the tattoo world, but I've done A LOT of reading and research on here and other places over the last couple months. I kind of agree with some saying that a responsible artist shouldn't tattoo someone's hand or palm or somewhere that is nearly impossible to hide unless that person has quite a few tattoo
  11. Yeah, a body suit of cats all done the way he did them in the very first episode of this season.
  12. Looks like me and a buddy are going to be going to this. Since it's only a 2 hour drive or so, we'll probably go on Saturday and spend the day. Maybe bring a little extra cash and maybe get some work done with a walk-up. Their Facebook page is a little updated, but they said for the most part all the artists from last year are gonna be back with a few changes.
  13. I told him I wanted kind of an armcap down to about middle bicep, maybe a little lower. I just don't wanna show up to the appointment and have to have him to another design adding in the background stuff. I don't really have an idea for the background stuff so I am leaving it up to the artist for whatever he wants to do/thinks will work the best. I'll probably call the shop next week just to make sure we're on the same page. I think it would make me feel better about it too.
  14. So I have an appointment to start what will be my second tattoo on April 5th. I went to the shop to meet the artist and discuss my idea. First I was met by what I guess is their front desk clerk. He asked about the tattoo and I explained it to him, and he went and talked to the artist for a minute came back, I put down my deposit and then said the artist wanted to meet with me. So I meet with the artist, and we lock down the image that I'm getting, but what I explained to the front desk person that I guess I am assuming he passed along to the artist is that I wanted more than just an image
