^ Wow no offence man but the first version - single leaf on a stick - looks extremely crappy, like a primary school drawing and not in a crappy but cute way.

At least you didn't give in and the second one is a gazillion times superior :thumbsup:

First one looks like a failed maple leaf.

In which case you would fit right in, in Canada.

Yeah, I was so pissed off first time around! Obviously couldn't see it as it went along as it was on my back. Pleased with the end result even if it took ages, but I still wouldn't go back there for some of the future works I want.

Got some more work on my arm yesterday. Red areas will be black/grey when healed. Really happy with how this is turning out!

Like I said on FB, simple and clean as fuck. You killed it dude. I'm really glad you decided not to get that busy thing you had planned.

Hahahaha, nah. Keeping things black and white... But I do want a Max Rebo tattoo and he needs to be BLUE!

Thanks buds. I have another appointment for the 25th :)

Yeah, looks great man. I definitely have a preference for simplicity in tattoos and that looks really good. Is the other appointment for another tattoo, or to retouch that one? I'm no tattoo expert but from what I know it's pretty common for big solid chunks of black like that to look perfect fresh but a couple of weeks later there will be some spots that weren't as well filled-in that just need another pass.

It's for another tattoo at the exact same spot on the other arm but it will also be for touchups if it's needed. Anyhow, the place is right besides my house so I can go anytime and get some touchups.

The 2nd tattoo will be inspired by this:

I'm way into color tattoos, for the record! I just think you have to be careful not to cram everything you love into one piece. 'Toine figured it out and that's super cool. Your little owl paladin is gonna be the business.

I can't wait to get more. It's just been an issue of timing and money. My guy works out of town, about 3.5 hours away. He is constantly touring and doing guest spots here in Louisville. Unfortunately those never line up with me having money. I'm torn between getting another piece on the same arm as my Baphomet or letting my dude do one of his own things on my legs. He does very bright, clean pieces and I want one. He especially has some KILLER Gypsy ladies which would be a sick lowkey tribute to Fate.

Here's one of his gypsy broads:

Oh shit Jonpo, I totally missed this post. This tattoo is awesome, can't wait to see what you'll get.

Here's my owl paladin! Freshly made today!
Image

I also got those Swans - The Glowing Man tattos this week end. I really like the drawings of this excellent album.
Spoiler: show

My latest project for before the summer and before I turn my mom insane will be a skull inspired by this Magic Circle image/tshirt. I know skulls are somewhat generic but I always liked the imagery. I'm removing the smoke and adding some cool orchids and also removing the band name. I could possibly add another planet to fill the void. I'm keeping the frame too.

In August I'm driving three hours to get the cover art for the Odz Manouk/Tukaaria split tattooed on my other arm:

The good sir-knight is rad, just as I expected it to be! I can't lie I don't get the SWANS things at all and I think the placement really mucks up what you have going already, but that's all you player! Glad you're happy with them.

The Swans tats were somewhat impulsive but I don't regret the decision!

What do you think of the Magic Circle idea?

I'm a fan. I would keep the smoke but that's just me. Are you placing something else there instead of the band name or just sort of "closing the loop" on the border? Skulls and outer space shit is always a winner with me, assuming the artist doesn't fuck up the application.

I think it would look really cool to have something in that break, even if it's not words.

I think I would just close the frame and add something else. Maybe the planet earth or a star destroyer from Star Wars lol. Your idea to put something to replace the name is good but not too sure what I would add...

What if you kept the smoke at the bottom but put a floral pattern through that gap?

For the LOVE of FUCK do not put a Star Destroyer in there! I will find you.

:-P You already know where I live, not fair! A starship of any kind would be cool but I'm thinking of Slough Feg's Traveller for the other arm so I should keep the two thematics detached.

I think the smoke doesn't look too nice and it's a bit confusing, I'd put moss and orchids there instead. I also like this skull + candle idea that could be integrated.

Yeah that one is cool. I'm way into melted candles as a tattoo. Seems like a completely separate idea though.

How about the skull + this crown on top:

I think it'd give the skull a more macabre look than the candle, which is also cool.

This is my first tattoo, from about two weeks ago. Kind of impressed that I managed to get a tattoo, since I had the worst phobia of needles and such growing up. Extremely pleased with how it turned out, and I absolutely plan on getting more!

That is super fucking clean dude! I really like it. They're addicting right? I still only have the one (although it's a big'n!) but I'm dying for more. What I'm gon' do with all this blank skin anyways? Fuck my temple!

Toine: Beware of getting too much outside input on your tattoos. Go with your gut, bud! (And at the end of the day consider this: A few bad tattoos floating in a sea of cool ones will be nothing but funny memories when you're old.)

Cool image, Antioch but I've never heard this Helleborus nor do I care about symphonic black metal. I don't only want an image because it looks cool, it needs to mean something too.

I'm not too sure about getting the Skull tattoo at this precise moment. I do need to save money. Mom is right haha :(

Yeah, plus you know, there's only so much space on your body for tattoos. If I was into the idea of getting a bunch of them, I'd still want to space it out a bit to let each one sink in.

I've liked it since I saw it, so thought it'd be a good tip. I hear you, though... It has to mean something, indeed. That's the reason why I don't have any myself. Anyway, good luck with your next one.

Got a design in progress; a viking burial taking place with a black sun in the sky. Hopefully, a spinal piece if I don't wuss out.

Got this about a month ago. First one. Needs some touching up, but i'm very, very happy with it. Plan on getting more from the dude, as I really like his style and how it works with horror/death stuff. Gives it some levity but not too much.

Finally got my Odz Manouk/Tukaaria tattoo two days ago, after being on a waitlist for four months.

Spoiler: show
A moment after being completed: https://i.imgur.com/WOoMqk3.jpg (the image is huge, which is why I'm not inserting it inline)

Two days later (mostly trying to demonstrate that it actually is a circle, it's just hard to see the exact shape since it's centered on my shoulder):

The first session of my Slough Feg - Traveller was done today (3 hours or so), next one in 2 weeks for the shading. I'll post the pic then. Pretty damn excited.
