  1. @Rikhall those daggers looked like it's really digging in there. actually made me stare at it for a while. lol
  2. Thanks, i'm super amped. Hoyer got me into this dude and now I'm hooked at everything he does.
  3. I got tattooed three times in California while on vacation. Still had a blast on vacation. If you can hack it, why not?
  4. As a plain skin, I always wondered why all the shops burn incense. As someone who is tattooed often, I still don't know if there is a true meaning behind it. (this is where I get jokes thrown at me now) lol
  5. Just got a spiderweb from Garver. Always a great experience, quick as hell and conversation is always cool. Spoke about finishing my sleeve. So damn excited. (Sorry about large crappy pic)
  6. that is pretty sweet @Forty6and2 Who did the work?
  7. Richard Smith at Three Kings.... Fairly easy to get an appointment, very good artist. About 2 years ago he was still very fair on pricing too.
  8. I'll repeat my old story that wasn't posted on this thread..... In May 2014, I got my first tattoo. Though I've been into art for years, tattoos have been something I've been into since my teens. I was always hesitant because I didn't want to live with that "regretful" tattoo mixed with not being able to afford a good artist. I began my diet at 360 pounds, I kept saying to myself I'm going to get a tattoo when I lost 25 pounds. I got past 25 pounds then bumped it up to 50 pounds. Past that mark then 100 pounds. Past that and finally said when I lost 125 pounds I'm going to get a tattoo. FINALLY I got up to 128 pounds lost. I decided that's it I'm doing it. Being a fan of Luke Wessman's artwork and life story since about July of 2013. I needed him to do my first tattoo. Went to Wooster Street Social Club the day the doctor confirmed my weight loss. He took me as a walk-in. Having his talent, great back story and awesome conversation only fueled the fire of getting more tattoos. After having another 3 sessions with Luke, I went nuts and began getting tattooed by a few others: Timothy Hoyer, Mark Mahoney, Chris Garver (3x), Deno, Steve Wimmer and Rich Pineda. First Tattoo (sorry for big pic)
  9. Planning a trip to Chicago in April. Aside from Great Lakes, anyone have any suggestion on shops?
  10. As much as I enjoy tattoos, I honestly admit to watching this show religiously. I am happy to see artists I am familiar with on here this season too. now you can start making fun of me.
  11. FINALLY, I can strike a name from The List. Mark Mahoney did this rose when he came to Jersey. Yes, shitty cell phone pic. You know what's up.
  12. So what is the best way to heal? I've been doing foam reveals for the last 5 years and it seems that my tattz heal within 24 hours. Suggestions?
  13. I have a bunch and when I got tattooed, my artist went over them. No problems thus far but he said some people have them raised off their skin. he would avoid that, but mine weren't raised.
  14. Well, my 2nd session with Garver went down this past Friday. This pic was taken right when it was done. Best part is, he asked if I was interested in sleeving out my arm. I obviously agreed and more sessions are to come. Going to connect my Back to the Future portraits with some other elements.
  15. I absolutely loved it. I have no qualms about it at all that concerns me. Everyone was nice as hell. The only thing is I noticed that when people were walking in to see if they have open appointments, they weren't really helpful. This is obviously an issue that doesn't concern us though.
  16. He is going to be at Inkedout in Secaucus next weekend. he's got time because he was just added I think last week or the week prior. My slot is the 10th at 1pm. FYI he is VERY expensive. I think I DM'd you on IG, I got a rose by Garver last August. If I didn't, i'll send it today.
  17. i went from doing my best not to book anything since my last appointment on February 1st. Welp, Mark Mahoney is coming to Jersey and I couldn't pass that up. Also, I inquired for a 2nd tattoo with Garver and was proposed to take over a possible cancellation. All within 10 days, so much for having no more debt lol. /positive rant
  18. I must admit, I did not watch season 1 and as someone who was into the comic, I am ashamed. Glad it was made into a show though. I will for sure be into this once I start getting it on demand.
  19. @suburbanxcore @Gingerninja did you guys get anything? Post em. Anyone else anything this past weekend???
  20. anything else besides this on tv? I mean more like a competition and not tattoo nightmares. Okay start making fun of me, it's my guilty pleasure
  21. Tell me someone is watching Stranger Things!!!!
