Subject:What do you think!
Posted by:pajamapockets.
Time:5:53 am.

My name's Grace and I'm 18, this is my first post. This is my first and only tattoo right now. I drew up a rough sketch and the tattoo artist's son drew out the tattoo and did a miraculous job. I got it two months after my birthday in February and  I just recently got it touched up and can't be more pleased with it.

ahhh finally got a new tattoo. I've been wanting this for a while. It's a cherry blossom branch with flowers... Sunset Ink, Sunset Beach, CA (OC area). I got it done by Ralf, the apprentice there, for FREE (however I have him $70 because it was awesome and that's all the cash i had on me). I was planning on just getting something smaller, or adding to another tattoo i already had.. but he drew up the branch and everything, exactly how i wanted it and was like "what the hell" and went for it. it took about 6 hours (and about 5 breaks) to finish it. i know it probably shouldnt have taken that long, but apparently he'd only been tattooing for 6 mos? pretty good on that end. and it turned out GREAT i think. obviously the pictures i'm posting are totally fresh, and the pink on the flowers is going to fade a great deal, and the swelling will go down a whole lot.

side note, has anyone ever gotten a tattoo up there on your shoulder and while it's happening, feel it simultaneously down the whole side of your body? haha my leg was so fucking twitchy while it was getting done! haha

but yay! here's my tattoo:

In the cherry blossom's shade, there's no such thing as a stranger.Collapse )

Subject:A question that needs answering.....
Posted by:thenegation.
Time:9:07 am.
Right people,

I woke up this morning with a re-newed want to start up my idea for a book.

SO! If I draw up some questions, would the tattooed among you be prepared to answer a few questions and have some pictures taken of your tattoos? Depending on the success, I may keep this to the London / England based people but we'll see how it goes.

Lemme know if you are up for it or would know people who would be. You can contact me on here, Facebook or Myspace, links provided below.

Tinhorn Saloon

IT'S FREE, MOTHER SCRUFFERS!!!


THERE'S A NEW FORUM IN TOWN

A month ago, during some winter down time, I put together a FREE forum, the Tinhorn Saloon. The goal was to put together an online bar, just add beer. There are categories from muscle cars to pinups, from music to tattoos. Post info on gigs, signings, burlesque shows, services, products, and parole board hearings. Folks don't have to already know who are, and your messages don't just reach people who are already your fans.

AND, to sweeten the pot, I've posted 3000 pinup images (with links to the model, artist, or photographer's page) as added incentive for becoming a member. Who doesn't like hot chicks?

There is also room in the header for posting a banner to promote your band/group/site. Check the thread on banner exchange in the Welcome category.

Thanks for your time, knuckleheads

I'm getting Dali's elephants tattooed on my legs.
Ive been looking around at artists but would still like some suggestions!
Anywhere in Boston or Providence...actually anywhere in the New England area, good art is worth a drive.
Just to make this a bit more clear, the Elephants!Collapse )

Subject:wrist tattoo is a bitch.
Posted by:killer_cola.
Time:2:22 pm.
I recently got a tattoo inside of my wrist. Prob is, it looks kind of infected and I know the skin in your wrist is thinner and all, but i don't like how tough and leathery and crusted the tat is. I apply the Tattoo Goo my artist gave me 3 times a day, what the heck is wrong with it?

I've been seeing these tattoos around lately:
They're simple, straight black bracelet looking tattoos up the arm, some very thin, some slightly thicker; but very simple. maybe 5 or 6 of them all together.

does anyone know the meaning of these?

Subject:Hello =]
Posted by:mellow_cellist.
Time:3:53 pm.
Hi there. I'm turning 18 in May, and I really want to get a tattoo on my birthday. There are a few I want to get, but the one I want to get first is a medium sized piece that would be on my left shoulder blade. The problem is, my birthday is three days before prom. While I don't have a dress yet, I can almost guarantee that you would be able to see the tattoo because on the dresses I like, you can see the shoulder blade. I wouldn't be ashamed of the tattoo or anything, but if it's just three days after getting it done, I'm worried that it would still look red and irritated, which would not be very attractive. So I'm just wondering, on average, how long does it take for the tattoo to stop having that "I just got this done" irritated skin look? If only a day or two, I'll probably get the shoulder piece, but if not, I still want to get a tattoo on my birthday, so I'll end up getting one of the smaller ones that I want, on a place where you couldn't see it in a dress. Any info you have is very much appreciated. Thanks, guys!

Subject:tipping and multi-session tattoos
Posted by:fuego.
Time:3:41 pm.
I onloy have one tattoo, and it took less than 10 minutes to do. Tipping wasn't an issue with that one.

Next week, I'm getting one started that is going to take several sessions of one or two hours each (having to work between may work schedule and the artist's schedule)

Anyway...the one thing I'm not clear on...how do you handle tipping when you're working across multiple sessions? One big tip at the end, a small tip each time? Is either one acceptable?

I'm excited to be getting this one, though I'm not looking forward to all the time that I will be under the needle (and working up the middle of my back....

I've seen this question before, either here or at another community...is there a site that I can try out lettering? I know what I want, I'm just not sure the font that I want it...as soon as I find a decent font, I make the appointment! Thanks!

My dissertation research

Hi, I'm currently a student at Nottingham Trent University (UK), I'm in my
final year of Design Management and have just started my dissertation. I've
decided to focus this on tattoo discrimination in the workplace, reasons behind peoples tattoos, regrets behind peoples tattoos, why people get them, why they don't etc.

If you have a tattoo and you don't mind sending me a pic, send 1 with a description of why you got yours and that would be a massive help! likewise if you regret it!

i'm going to put mine in first, lol.

I thought I would post here to ask if anyone knows of any good resources or know of people with first hand experience, inside knowledge of company policies against tattoos or any other sources of valid facts, information or contacts.

cheers

Antony Moran
