Only have 2 at the moment. On my right bicep is the arch angel michael and on my right ankle is a skull and crossbones(the gf has a matching one thats pink instead with a bow). The ankle picture is an old one from when i got it, but figured it would be better to show what it looks like since im a hairy bastard and its much fuzzier now.

Nothing too special...


It is an arm band based on the insignia for the Spacing Guild mental and physical training school from Dune. This particular school emphasized pure mathematics.

Considering that I had it done 11 years ago, I'm amazed that it is still as dark as it is (it is darker than the original pencil artwork that I drew up to have it done). Of course I don't spend a ton of time in the sun anymore.

The chest piece is insane and very well-done.

Quick question...


What's an appropriate tip for a tattoo artist? I've not had one before and am scheduled on the 7th of June for a piece, but I'm unsure how much to tip her when its done. Standard ~10-15%?

I think that's about right. I wouldn't do less than 10% unless you were unhappy with it. Maybe even 20% if you think it's especially good but any more than that seems excessive.

WHAT??? You have to tip the tattoo artiest I'm having my next one done in Newport, RI when I go over later this year. Glad I read this before hand, would have looked rude just paying what they stated

I'm getting a tattoo on my foot tonight. I'm actually not as nervous as I was a couple of weeks ago. I heard that generally you don't have to tip because they choose the price of the tattoo..

Anyways, where did everyone get their tattoos?

i always tip at least $20. last time i tipped $100, only because he gave me a super good deal and i had the extra cash.

please post a pic of what you got
i want one on my foot and i can't decide what to get
plus, when i got one on my ankle, my ankle and foot were swollen for about 2 weeks
i'd be interested to hear of your recovery time

i've never tipped for a tattoo, never even thought about it
i don't think these guys pay much attention to etiquette!
and they set their own prices
however, the artist of my most recent one, that was very well done, will be tipped with repeat business

about tip: it all depends on the size, scale and price of the tattoo. i would've tipped more on my last one, but i'm short enough on funds, and the artist knew that, but he did give me a deal, which i appreciate to say the least.

first attachment:my first tattoo from seven years ago, i drew it and just got it done. wasn't bad

second attachment:actually my third tattoo, its my birthday

last three attachemts:my newest tattoo along with my second and fourth tattoo. the ying yang on my wrist that you can see barely was my second. the tibetian writing (Om Mani Padme Hum) was my fourth, but touched up when the branch, lotus, and cherry blossoms were added sunday.

the only problem with tattoos, they certainly don't get better with age

this was my first tattoo on my back 14 years ago
needs a lot of work, but has already been colored in, and it hurts SO much worse the second time!


this is the one i had done second
it's an ankle cuff, and is about 3 years old


third one on my right ankle
i wanted something to accentuate the lines of my calf
but the tattooist misunderstood what i wanted with the color
so it's nothing like what i asked for
if you look closely you'll see that this guy was a beginner
i want to fix this one as well


the fourth is only about 1 year old
it is on my front right shoulder
it's my favorite
the artist drew it on the spot for me from a picture i brought in
he recommended black and grey
i was undecided at the time, but i don't think i'll ever add color to this one

Anyone here ever regret having a tattoo? I don't have one, and I'm not planning on ever getting on.

I was the same way, I thought, why? its just going to look all nasty when you get older, it'll be saggy and wrinkally. But its a personal thing, I created my design and I think that made it a whole lot better for me. Plus thats why I got it on my foot, I figure, I can cover it up if I need to
