  1. Hello everybody It's been a few years since last being an active poster here at LST. Name is Kye. Good to see that it's still an active place to talk tattoos. Funny that most of the top posts are still there when I left. Hope I can help the new wave of users we have here. Cheers
  2. Well you seem to be getting many great pictures, but if you would want to more I asked my wife what those beads are called in Japanese, and received the answer of juzu. So just image searching juzu irezumi on good brought up some good/bad results. the kanji for it is "数珠刺青."
  3. I can't believe that no-one has mentioned true love yet, a great tattoo show from Italy. Great tattoos, no drama, and a good host that is getting tattoos as the show goes on. It's too bad that was short lived.
  4. I'm in, that way I can have two different squidpants to wear.
  5. @9Years Before I started my backpeice I talked with my tattooer about what would go best with what I had already. Had a few ideas about what I would want and he said all of them would fit relatively well and wouldn't say one is better then the other. He told me to think it over and which one I wanted. I settled on Monju bosatsu, cause it would work with the space I had available. While the other tattoos would look fine, they would look best when done down to the mid leg area, and I only had till the end of my butt. So it was just talking it out with my tattooer and having a few ideas in my head. I just wish I would have started my backpeice first. Which in japanese tattoos is the normal approach, back, arms, chest, ribs, legs.
  6. Probably not needing to answer your question but I will. You can just say "karajishi." Cause you really don't pluralize things in japanese.. You would just say like "karajishi futatsu ni arimasu" (karijishi two I have)
  7. Thank you for posting that video. You've interrupted my LoL addiction, well for a little bit at least.
  8. To be honest it depends on many factors with how long color will last. It could vary from artists skill, pigment used, how it healed.... etc. Who are you wanting to get tattooed by?
  9. I was thinking something like that but I'm planning to go to Spider Murphy's. So my tattoo funds are taken. Great idea thou.
  10. Well dang, I was hoping i wouldn't have to wonder around another airport for a bunch of hours. But O' well.
  11. Well next week I'll be flying to california, but I have a 7 hour layover in Seattle. Is there anything close enough to do, or should I just stay at the airport?
  12. Yeah, best wishes to both of you. Hope for a quick recovery. And congratulations on the 6 year mark..... But you guys have grand kids, so I assume you've been together for longer.
  13. From what I've learned is that the first few washes are the most important. If it's in a location that's easy to wash I can get minimal peeling and no scabs, where as if it's a hard to reach place (upper back) get noticeably harder healing. It seems too me, dry or with creams, the first few washes is what gets a clean heal.
  14. He doesn't really do the traditional system. His style is 45 minute sessions, but in normal cases most horishi do tattoos in 2-3 hour blocks. But for him if you want more then those initial 45 minutes you need to schedule 2 sessions Ina day and they most likely wont be back to back.
  15. Yeah I know man, I'll ask him if it would be cool come in and watch some of his clients. Sometimes my phone makes me look like I'm dyslexic or something.
