Don't know if I posted this but I had it done about ten days ago. Great guy and local, but 3500 miles for you give or take.
If I can offer a tip, find an artist that does the work that you like vs. a shop that's local. Too many shops have a rotating staff and you may get the "artist" that's been doing tribal bands for a month. Lance Keller out by me (Macomb) has a great reputation but even there I've had mixed results.

I would love to get something on my shoulder, but I've spent years trying to figure out what I want, LOL

I got the opposite problem... know what I want, can't decide where to put it. (Oh yeah, I know I just opened myself up for a lotta smartass suggestions with that one!) It's a bit large so that limits my options, especially since I'm not all that large myself, and am picky about placement. I've gotta get serious about printing out what I want and drawing it on to see what I like. Pretty much my one option is to have it spanning my side, but exactly *where* is what's up for debate, and whether I would like it there enough to wear it forever.


(Now when it comes to piercings, it's just a matter of 'no, no, you don't want to go through healing any more, remember?')

My wife wants a side tattoo but doesn't think she can handle the pain accross the ribs.

Katharine
03-06-2012, 11:38 PM
I guess it would depend on what she wants, as to what to expect pain-wise. What I want is relatively simple so it's not like I'd have big areas of color to fill in-- and my philosophy is that even if it hurts a lot, it won't last that long and a little bit of pain for a lifetime of a body mod I really like is worth it. It's how I felt about getting my industrials... and then I found they didn't even hurt that much-- and I am such a wuss for pain. (Everything I heard was how terribly painful they are and I was really nervous. It was almost a letdown. I think I've had worse days at the dentist. The biggest pain is healing the damn things; takes forever.) I think she should go for it!

(My only worry is what it might look like once middle-age spread sets in. Guess it'd be a big motivator to keep going to the gym!)

Well I have 3 tats...

My first was this cross arm piece.... it's suppose to look like a piece of old jewerly. These pics are old shortly after it was done... but it is holding up well.

Added exhaust smoke
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Tattoo/c4a61c7c.jpg

Started to add chrome/blue/white/gray coloring but after 11 hours at the shop and a solid 8hours under the needle, my skin was done. Had to stop at risk of over working the skin.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Tattoo/8e0f69fe.jpg

We never got the additional chain above the motor, need to finish the chrome coloring on everything. Need to adjust some fin thickness still, white all over, and torn skin on the still to be added chain and across the bottom of the lower sprocket. But now I just have to heal up.

Guess I failed to update my tat pics...

I started using Lisa Strange at Strange Daze in Davidson, MI. Well worth the drive... Lisa is crazy talented!!

She did this amazing black & gray of the wife and I riding on my inner arm (about a month ago)

She also touched up my motor, finished the chain, and fixed the smoke...

Then today I went back to finish the half sleeve. I sent some pics to Lisa on ideas for my tricep area and we both agreed on the piston and spark plug... she rocked this!!

And then finished it all off with some smokey effect all around.

Started on my Celtic knotting for my right shoulder cap and half sleeve. I had the nautical star before but she completely recolored it. This line work was nuts and so time consuming. But it's a good start. I already made another appt to continue it.
