    Whoa, that looks great. Can you explain what's going on in that and where it comes from?

    Picture taken on the day itself, planning for a bigger one.


    I respect anyone edge. I was edge in my early high school years, but failed to stick with it. I kept the mohawk, but left the sobriety. Sick tat.

    I think you really need to date a classier type of guy. xxx is sh*t beer, and with one too many, he is in all likelihood going to beat you right into the 1950's.

    Applied by Tomas at Tattoo Paradise on 18th St in DC (no clue who did the original drawing). I got it because I think it looks cool. Added bonus: it's in a spot where I can roll up my sleeves twice and still not show it, so it's pretty SFW (not that it matters in my current job).

    I have two more planned, but I keep dragging my feet because I won't be able to give blood for a year after that. I could always go across the river to NJ to get one, and I'd only be deferred from donating until it's fully healed, since that state health dept. regulates tattoo parlors over there. But then I'd be getting a tattoo in New Jersey. [​IMG]

    Check out my black cock(s). Both pics were taken when fresh, though the arm is healed on the second pic. I think I'm going to back to the artist and have him add some feathers to the one on my chest. It's looking a little bare (though it's spot on to the reference pic).

    Thanks! It was done by Stefano Alcantara at Last Rites Tattoo Theatre. His specialty is color realism, but his black/gray doesn't seem to be too shabby either.

    Do you shave only the area that the tattoo covers, like in the picture, or do you keep yourself clean shaven at all times?

    What's the deal with hair growth on portions of tattooed skin?

    My chest was only shaved to do the tattoo, and I don't shave it otherwise. I don't get that much hair on my chest so it really isn't an issue for me.

    Anyone see any good misspelled tats lately? I saw a girl with "Carpe" on one arm and "Deim" on the other. [​IMG]
    Saw a pic of a girl with "To Thy Own Self Be True" tattoo. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Also I hope this was a troll:

    I just got a last minute appt with Tim Hendricks this week and I'm pretty excited. I hadn't planned on getting another one this quick, but hell with it.
