Actually I live on the other side of PA and I'm not partial to any of the artists around here for what I want. I'm going to Philly for some conference for work and was planning to take advantage.

sounds like you're becoming a tattoo guy. I remember you posted in the old thread, but I don't remember you saying what style you were into or where you lived, etc.

Seems like traditional/neo-traditional. Though, I don't really know how to classify the sleeved arm. It seems like maybe a mix between Japanese and American traditional, but I have no clue.

I suggest browsing lastparrowtattoo.com in the tattoo design section and try to find some stuff you're into.

In my experience, if you get something done it will eventually give it self meaning. I got a portrait of garfield in a frame tattooed on me with the underlying "delusions of grandeur" meaning, well, since garfield hates mondays and is a lazy cat, why would he be in a regal-esque frame? (Whatever I was high) Months later when I re-watch one of my favorite movies, smiley face, Anna faris says something about loving lasagna. And that garfield loves lasagna. And she should frame a picture of President Garfield so everyone would know she loves lasagna, cause it would be meta.

So yeah, my tattoo means that to me NOW, but didn't when I got it. Hope that made sense. There's nothing wrong with getting a tattoo for the sake of getting one. Tattoos are tough in nature, dost thou think sailors and biker guys really delved into the meaning of life and the repercussions of maybe picking a design that didn't fit their palette?

Get a rose with someone's name on it. Or an animal, because you feel it fits your nature. Etc...it's easy to find meaning later

People really don't appreciate how these fuckin eses take into account the number of walk-ins they allow per day. If you get there within the first few hours of them opening, there's like a 75% chance they can take you that day. Whereas BHR or O'donnell are booked for months straight. I guess it's more of a real old school approach, which is cool

Just made an appointment with BHR for May.. His wait was only about a month. Luckily I got ahold of him way sooner than I needed to.

Tattoo etiquette question:

My first tattoo I got (last August) was sort of a traditional styled piece, but instead of going to someone who does traditional work well, I went to someone who I had known for a while because I was super nervous. He's a great artist, just traditional work isn't really his style. Is it a dick move to get it touched up and added onto by someone who does traditional work well?

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe a lot of artists won't touch some one else's work unless you have a more compelling story, or are covering up something regretful.

I don't agree. first of all, regarding if it's a "dick move" toward the first tattooer, it's never a dick move to give yourself something better if they didn't do a stellar job. it's your skin and you don't owe anything to him. and as for going to another tattooer to make it better, I think plenty of guys would be willing to help you out. Whether they'd want to touch it up or cover it up or just work around it all depends on how they feel about the og tattoo.

most tattooers I know won't do this. if they did, they'd constantly be drawing shit to email to people who say they want to come in but don't end up showing, which is basically working for free. it's better (and just nicer) to do it all in person.

I think it works like any other custom drawn tattoo where as long as you put down a deposit they will draw it up ahead of time. That's what Mario did with my dagger.

No, a lot of artists don't care unless it's a friend of theirs, co-worker or there's nothing wrong with the tattoo.

Edit: I'm going to be in NYC next week. I know it's an easy thing to search, but I wanted some personal opinions on good shops to check out.[/quote]

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe a lot of artists won't touch some one else's work unless you have a more compelling story, or are covering up something regretful.


No, a lot of artists don't care unless it's a friend of theirs, co-worker or there's nothing wrong with the tattoo.

The artist he's thinking about having touch up the tattoo (I believe), doesn't have a very high opinion of the guy who did the first tattoo.
Post it up, son. Might as well let the class know what you're talking about.

Nope. I've gotten plenty of tattoos touched up by artists other than the one who tattooed it. You gotta take care of your investment one way or another.

My tattooer touches up tattoos that his friends have done all the time. Maybe there are some guys who would take offense to that, fuck them though. Once it's on your skin, it's at your discretion. Tattoo politics are for whiny children

Hahah I wasn't aware of this, but I guess it makes sense. I would post a picture but I don't have a camera and my webcam sucks.
