  • Biography
    Vietnamese and Chinese born and raised in Georgia. I'm a Southern boy with no Southern accent, haha. Gotta be because I was raised in a Vietnamese speaking house-hold. I was the rebel in the household when growing up with one other sibling. I don't like being told what to do or what I can't do... Probably why I have so many tattoos now. My parents are strict traditional Asian parents. They view tattoos in a negative connotation which has never stopped me from getting any work done. They can live with it!:D

  1. My left arm has all been Japanese themed... I was thinking of all Traditional for my right arm. Left leg will be all traditional and right leg will be Japanese themed. It's gonna be weird looking at myself in the mirror when most of me is covered.
  2. My last session had to be my longest so far. On the back of my calf, about 8 hours total time of tattooing. Was at the shop from Noon until 10:00PM, 3 hours after the shop had closed. Took about 3 breaks. I think the previous longest session I've had was around 4-5 hours.
  3. Definitely loving the concept of the zombie bull as well. I made sure I wore nice clean socks when my calf was done. My tattooer was like "are your socks clean?" when I asked if i should take my shoes off or not, haha. He said he would wrap my feet if they smelled. He didn't and the session lasted for about 7-8 hours.
  4. I don't think it's rude at all to ask... It's better to ask them about their work then to stare. Some of my best conversations are with people randomly that also have work done on them.
  5. I think it looks great. The artist looks like he knows what he's doing. Post up some progress pictures when you get a chance.
  6. I get stares all the times especially 10 years ago before tattoos were popular like they are now... I live in the South and I run into a lot of judgmental pricks living in the Bible Belt and all... I usually ignore them and most of the time, I get a lot of people who are curious and interested in my pieces so I show them. Occasionally, I'll get someone touching me trying to hold my arm to get a better look...It's usually a female so that doesn't bother me. Haven't had any random guys do that so guess I'm lucky on that...
  7. I can only speak for my best friend who has been a Type-1 Diabetic since he was 10 years old, now hes 30 years old... He got a rather large back piece done in 1 6-hour session with very minimal breaks (1 or 2 at the most). I'll have to ask him what he did to prep himself before hand but he told me recently that he slept through most of it (which I don't know was a good idea for the tattoo artist to keep continuing or not).. His tattoo healed like normal, didn't have any infections or prolonged healing.
  8. Lookin' good! Can't wait to see it completed... My most recent tattoo was on my calf and it started to peel in 3-4 days but everyone is different. As long as it's not infected, I'm sure you'll be ok!
  9. I want to say my back was the worst especially on the spine and near my love handles. I wanted to punch my artist a few times during the the first session which was all outlining...A lot of line work as well... My next session is shading and I'm not looking forward to it.
  10. @ThatGuy I guess it's a little different with me but I feel that anything I can cover with a dress-shirt or button-up long sleeve is good enough for me. Probably why I haven't tattooed my hands or neck yet. I get tattoos where I find will fit along the curves of my body/flow well and how much space I need for the particular piece I want. Like someone said earlier, it just depends on the availability of the artist that I want work from.
  11. I guess I got lucky, my calf is healing with very little issue. Just 2 thicker scabs on where my artist may have overworked the black on the eyes of my tattoo...It was done last Monday and has been a breeze so far. I want to say having your whole back done is a pain in the ass to keep fully moisturized and cared for. I had to have my fiancee help me every single time I had to tend to my back.
  12. A little girl holding a hanya mask which she hides behind...
  13. An undead skeleton samurai screaming a battle cry.
  14. I love zombies, here is a zombified geisha.
  15. A samurai battling a huge samurai monster, heart with a sai piercing it, origami paper crane, & Japanese rising sun...
