  1. If someone particularly loves an artists style then they are better off buying a piece of art from that artist in whatever medium the artist specialises in. It's like commisioning an artist to do a watercolour painting, and then taking it to another artist and saying actually i'd like this as an oil painting. It makes no sense.
  2. I like Colin Jones' work, he's based in Shrewsbury at Stained Class
  3. I've stayed in the travelodge after tattoos, I didn't rewrap, don't like the idea of sleeping with clingfilm wrapped around my leg. Didn't have any problems, but I didn't get any leakage, no blood or ink or anything (benefit of dotwork I think). But then I wouldn't worry about ruining the travelodges sheets, if it was a nice place I might worry.
  4. Hand tattoos are my absolute favourites to look at, but it'll be a while before i'm ready for them. Someone I used to work with got his hand tattooed (with nothing on his arms), and as soon as they were healed realised it was a stupid decision for him and started having them lasered. He got offended when I laughed at his pain :p
  5. I'm really loving Shakey Petes work lately Instagram
  6. I can't get my head around the idea of not owning the rights to something that is a part of your body. I don't care how good an artist is, if they asked me to sign a disclaimer like that I would run.
  7. Oh and if you like that picture I posted, Dotwork Damian is based in Brighton, at the Blue Dragon, and I can tell you he's a really great guy and his work heals beautifully. I have some very detailed work by him myself.
  8. Gerry Carnelly does very nice work, and easy enough to travel to from birmingham. I don't know of anyone in birmingham specialising in biomech. MBA is a great studio though.
  9. I love really detailed and textured pieces done in dotwork, and i've heard good things about how dotwork lasts (something about there being less ink to spread) though I don't have evidence to back that up, it is something i've taken a chance on. For example (by Dotwork Damian):
  10. Progress on my leg by Dotwork Damian. Left is fresh, right is healed.
  11. My new tattoo by Dotwork Damian of Blue Dragon, Brighton. I'm very happy, it's incredible what that man can do with dots.
  12. An artists personality is kind of important to me, if i'm gonna let someone permanently alter the way I look I gotta be able to trust them. So yeah a comment like that would definitely bother me. I've only been tattooed once so far, and it was brilliant experience in every way, the artist was lovely, one of the most pleasant people i've met in a long time, really put me at ease when I was very nervous, he even bought me lunch. I'll be getting more tattoos from him, and his personality (as well as his art) helped me make that decision. So surely it can only be benificial to an artist to try a
  13. I don't think white ink tattoos will get much love here....
  14. Hi, i've posted a few times before under a different account, but felt a bit wierd using my full name and didn't properly introduce myself, so i'm starting again :) My name is Nikki, i'm from Shropshire, England, and i'm pretty new to tattoos really. I always vaguely liked tattoos, and thought I might get a couple of small ones, but growing up almost all the tattoos I saw on people were very mediocre, or just plain bad, and I didn't really realise how great they could be. It wasn't until about a year ago that I saw an article in a magazine featuring Jose Lopez and it sort of opened my eyes t
