  • i got this mississipi john hurt 4-5 years ago, and i'm still pretty happy about it.

    That's fantastic!


    On topic. I have 13 tattoos and not a single regret (other than I wish I had more)...

  • I want to get some new work done. I want some dope shit this time though from a respected artist. Any suggestions? Grime-AWR? Seen? If possible, i'd like to catch someone on an East coast tour..Southeast actually. Any suggestions? Atlanta perhaps?

    Here's a suggestion: Never, ever ask for anyone's opinion on what you should get. No one else has to live with it.

    If you can't figure out what you want all on your own, you really have no business getting a tattoo.



    And Magic: that is a nice one. MI John Hurt is my all-time "everything's gonna be okay" music.

    before the edit, i was about to ask---> is your daughter thinking about a tattoo?

    guess the instinct was right.

    i have some decent coverage. 2 regrets...but there is only one of them left to be covered up.

    Watson Atkinson in Atlanta is dope.
    He really only does fairly large-scale work, though.

    A friend of mine got 2 full sleeves done over the course of about 2 years, they were all colorful etc. early last year he decided he didn't like the colors & has now got 2 arms that are probably 60-75% black Also, my ex-wife decided she didn't like her's so we got them lasered off, that cost me a bundle. I had another friend who came from a big gang family, he got expelled from school when he was 13 because he went to stay at his uncle's (head of the gang) place for a weekend & his uncle & friends got wasted & decided it would be fun to tattoo their gang logos on his face, forehead, both cheeks & neck, his mom was less than impressed & I don't think she was on good terms with the uncle for a long time after that. Anyways, I was working with this dude when he was in his early 20s & in the process of getting them lasered off (all fully covered by health insurance) & he would come into work with this painful, puffed up, red face after each laser session. Don't get me wrong, some tats can look way cool, but there are some definite horror stories too.

    Yeah, the strangest thing was though, after getting all that bullshit lasered off, he was toying with the idea of getting a facial moko like the one above, go figure?? I guess there's just no helping some people.

    sad story.

    Although, Moko is not something you "toy around" with.

    I climb with a guy who's currently getting massive sleeve work done and he keeps on asking me what I think of the progress. What am I supposed to say? "Actually, the second-rate Asian imagery that is now a permanent part of your body is awfully cliched"? Guy is also married at 23 so maybe judgement is not his strength.

    My buddy got this tattoo of a cartoon cat. The funny thing is the tail comes around from the back and it looks like that cat has a hard on. I love the tattoo but he regrets it for obvious reasons. Also, I remember reading in the paper that this dude got a fighting Irish tatoo. Problem was the artist spelled fighing irish not fighting irish. I bet that dumb ass regrets that.
