More ink brainstorming ideas . . . . .

0

Well I am settled on going for another octopus tattoo and leaning towards the left side of my neck with the tentacles reaching down around the lower portions of my neck, upper chest and shoulder blade / upper back. I have had such good feedback on the octopus I have as the focal point on my left arm sleeve it just seems fitting to add one...

Kicking around ideas between ink projects.

So soon I will be heading back in to get the Jim Lee Batman inspired tattoo shaded and colored in but I keep finding myself wanted to add one more octopus somewhere. The one on my left forearm is pretty epic, I almost cried when I saw the finished work, but my passion for the ocean, diving and my nautical heritage has me thinking hell...

Work Resumes . . . . soon.

1

Okay after waiting about a month the sleeve work will resume sometime after 1/13/14 or 13.1.14 for my friends abroad - still prefer the day, month year format as it makes so much more sense - no fucking idea why we in the States think we needed to do Month, Day then year. Anyways I am pathetic when it comes to patience - no...

New sleeve is now underway.

Two hours of brainstorming and working on the art and another 90 minutes in the chair and the outline for the first piece of my right arm sleeve is now embedded in my skin. Should be a pretty epic sleeve and something I hold close to my heart - comic books / DC Comics and Batman. Looks a little rough in this picture but this is only...

New Sleeve

0

Well set up the appointment with my artist and work begins on Thursday, December 5th for the right arm sleeve. Going to be a tribute to DC Comics Batman. Sure I had some say why Batman and why comic books rather than something more sentimental, spiritual or more mature. I tell them all this is ALL of that and more. I grew up reading and...

Friends Reunited by tattoos

A great friend of mine from High School who has spent the past 20 years in the US Army and all over the world. We would chat in Facebook but could never seem to coordinate getting together and hanging out. On Tuesday we got that opportunity when he was in town and decided to stop in at my tattoo shop. He was getting a pin-up

WTF Vermont

0

Just read the SG Blackheart Burlesque Show in Vermont had to be toned down because Vermont State Law prohibits the display of breasts, butts and dancing in a sexually provocative manner. Man here I thought the Northeast was very liberal. I feel fortunate to have seen them in two states (MD and PA) and to have seen the uncensored shows. We aren't talking an...

Making progress . . . . .

So I have been at this weight loss thing / lifestyle change now for 6 months. So far I have lost 82 lbs., I am no longer on High BP medication and my labs (cholesterol, blood sugar, etc.) are all normal and my confidence is slowly being restored. I had some friends who said "that is awesome, what diet are you using?" I think this is...

Not sure I like the new SG site . . .

0

About a year ago a friend of mine was an active member on SG and I thought it looked pretty awesome and seemed like an ENDLESS source of communication and networking. Lots of options when doing searches for members and ladies and groups. Now it almost seems like they have over simplified the site and I don't see any real advanced search options and...

Philadelphia Blackheart Burlesque Show

0

This show was fucking simply amazing! We had previously seen the show in Baltimore as VIPs and it was a nice show and the venue wasn't too bad. But with the VIP tickets and this venue we almost felt segregated from the show as we were "quarantined" off to the side and away from the stage where our view was almost always obstructed. We...
