  1. I personally love the look of big work that has had time to sit in the skin, it is something very intangible that adds heavily to the tattoo itself and the person wearing it. @Dan I'm really not much for flames, but I can contribute maybe. I recently had a fun one with pricing a small one shot tattoo. I even reached out about it on this site for advice. I was quoted almost a grand on a small 2 - 2.5 hour one shot from a newish artist. I was caught off guard by the price, and I found out the artist was basically doing a cash grab to help fund a vacation. I was put off by this a lot,
  2. @Piha that is coming out so nice, you should be stoked. That is also a ton of coverage for 3 hours. I'm excited to keep watching this progress
  3. Welcome. what artists are you considering, what imagery would you like, and do you have any tattoos now?
  4. ah i see the statue it us based off if. very cool and thanks for the info
  5. @Jshippo what is the subject? I hate to be ignorant is it something biblical?

    Just finished the last dexter book... What a letdown. Anyone suggest something mindless and fun in a similar vain?
  7. Stop getting tattooed if you love them and then immediately hate it
  8. @ isotope that is an awesome start. I love the arrows. about 1 side hurting more than another. I'm a lefty and that side is way more sensitive. As @BrianH mentions, just wait for your lower back shading that was certainly enlightening for me. thanks for posting your piece
  9. absolutely I want to have a traditional japanese tattoo experience where I'm being tattooed on a mat on the floor with some master going to work in a smokey shop covered by drawings and pictures and such. I'll add state of grace because I would love my torso done by Horitomo. Better start saving now....
  10. @Graeme I really appreciate that because your back is killer. @ironchef I def will, I know you told me to do so before and I honestly forgot.
  11. Got some work in Saturday, but life has been crazy. Wanted to post this up. Detailed in the hair, and sank some color into the top oni. The pic makes him look very bright but the colors have cooled off nicely and now have a deep tone to them. We spoke about detailing him up more next session with either a patterned robe or doing more in the body. Either way I'm on board. EDIT: just to put it in perspective, the horns are colored white that's how red I got I always love the way the tray looks at the end when all the colors are laid out and all is said and done. I thought this concept would

    Here's to the year of the Depend Adult Undergarments lol. Infinite Jest was 0.00% what I expected, and honestly took a long time for me to digest / reflect on. Good read, but certainly deserves a second look for me I have the final Dexter book sitting in my Kindle and I'm afraid to crush it out and be done with the character. I'm hoping he is exposed or killed like I really wanted from the show. **Odd connection, did anyone who read Infinite Jest find a kinda sorta odd connection to Videodrome?? I
  13. small contribution. Was getting some work done last night, and the shop was commenting on how tattoos are a luxury. I thought it was really funny that this was the point of discussion.
  14. Appointment on my knee got canceled this Saturday.... Boooo Nabbed a spot on my back instead. I'm getting a lot of "uuuuhhhhh you sure you wanna do this??" From local artists when I ask about getting my knee done. Funny, I thought it would be me chickening out with this one. Got a guy at a VERY underrated Long Island shop that I want to do it. I'll ask him this weekend most likely
  15. @polliwog I'm not sure if this helps clarify but I feel like what you guys are trying to get at on "the other side of the coin" is usually represented by the culture of poverty. One aspect of this is often filling your life with small trinkets that when you look at them make you feel like you have "a lot" Of something. The snippet you quoted above is almost the first thing that came to mind when reading that and your response about it being encouraged to spend when you may not have on cars, watches, clothes, tattoos, etc. falls in line with that thinking. It's how the people in the neighbo
