I'm perplexed as to what I think about this page. On one hand, it's mildly entertaining to see some of the abominations posted (shaky lines, horrible shading and really poorly done colour). But on the other hand, I can't help but feel bad for both the tattooed and the artist.

Tell me what you guys think!

 

I wouldn't call them artists. Hacks, definitely, but not artists.

 

The reality is that tattooing isn't easy and if you're not up to level, you shouldn't be offering your services for money. I also don't feel sorry for the tattooed because it's not hard to research an artist.

 

That shit's for life, you owe it to yourself to get it done properly.

 

 

 

I really need to get something done this year. So many ideas but I keep spending money on other things.

Hello, finally found this thread... hoping you guys can recommend a tattoo shop in Chicago? I am going there in September... I know the city pretty well, but have never gotten any work done there. Someone who is good at realistic, floral, old school...

 

Not sure what I am getting yet, but it is long overdue! Last one was ten years ago!

Lets bump this shit. Started some new work last weekend:



And this is the hand piece I had done last Spring:

I'm picking out artist/themes to finish off the bottom of my half sleeve. Work in progress. Haven't had any work done in years, but I figure i might as well get back on the horse.


wife had this done 2 weeks ago:

Hey, I'd forgotten about this thread. Here's some random snaps of stuff I have. I really only wear American traditional tattoos, or at least, they are very heavily influenced by that school. My favorite shop is probably Spider Murphy's in Marin County, where I've been tattooed five times. The other stuff is mainly stuff I've collected from other places where I have been referred to be other people who have tattooed me.

met with artist for about an hour, had a great chat. Changed plans a bit - instead of finishing off half sleeve on right arm, going to do a full composed piece on left arm (right arm already has work, left arm is blank). Initial thoughts are shoulder down to elbow.

You did the whole thing in one shot? If so, well done. I'll bet your cried a silent "thank Jesus" when they did that final wipe down, lol..

We had a half hour break after finishing up the elbow. I think the shoulder area was probably the worst tbh, definitely worse than elbow.

Looks great. If you did the top, bony part of your shoulder, then yeah, I'd say that would hurt a good bit more than the elbow. That said, elbow is definitely no picnic. You doing color or leaving this as is?

Adding a teeny bit of shading to make it look layered and finishing the inner arm.

i'm worried about the inside of the arm, TBH

my artist actually has a fairly light hand (according to my wife, who had her forearm and thigh done by her).

The wost part for me was the bit where shoulder meets armpit, inner arm should be okay compared to that.

I've done my clavical and sternum...they sucked. Top of my hand was no picnic either, but the fleshy part of my stomach actually made me move in the chair. I've been going to my guy since I was 23, and he said he's never seen me react like that before. It probably doesn't help that I'm older now, I think as you get older the pain threshold gets lower and lower.

did a good bit today. keeping it like this for at least a few weeks, then will think about basic background options.
