1st and fresh tattoo


After my brother took the plunge in Vegas I decided to man up and get one. I like Bleach but more importantly I love the look of this symbol.

Fair enough, I guess if you can cover it that's ok. That must've hurt like fuck though! You're a brave man.

Oh, and it is very good work.
Hurt a lot less than I'd expected! I'd liken it to cat scratches. I've had head injections before and have back pain quite often though, so I might just have a higher threshold. I did almost freak out when I took the bandage off and spilt a pool of blood everywhere though.

Very pleased with it. Pretty jelly of your Dream and Jesse tats!

I am new to tattoos. Can anyone tell me how much would a tattoo like this cost(size and detail)?
Costs vary from artist to artist. The one you posted would a expensive though no doubt. Do some research on local artists and set up a consultation with one you believe can pull it off the way you want. They should be able to let you know how much and how many sessions you can expect to have.

Good luck.

I'm going to do something similar (I don't have kids yet but plan on it, so I'm leaving a blank spot on the arm)

I was wanting to do 2 bears down below my elbow to represent me and my spouse, both looking up into the night sky (on my shoulder) at the Ursa Major and Ursa minor bear constellations (to symbolize our eternity). In between I wanted to do something for each kid that we have in the future....probably a different bird or animal in the sky between the other 2 pieces.

I'm going to represent them through symbolism rather than words.
Finally got started on this Friday night. My artist did the first of the 2 bears on my forearm. Next appointment is in 2 weeks. The flowers below the bear are supposed to be Colorado tansy Asters to represent my baby girl (her middle name is Aster). The guy did an amazing job putting my idea to reality. I couldn't really get a great photo to do it justice because of the curvature of my arm and the weird position I was in trying to take my own photos of myself, but here's the best I could get.

Started what will be steampunk sleeve yesterday. Needs a little more work done on owl and the background to make the head pop, as well as a big flourish below before starting on some clockwork. Bad pic as things like the eyes are shaded dark to light.
Cant see all the white highlighting on top of head feathers in photo either till the darker background goes on.

Im stocked so far.

Not the best pics but ok...

I have the logo's of Black Flag and Chumbawamba on my right shoulder.

This one on my leg. I wanted a kilt-wearing bagpipe-player but just a normal bagpipe player seemed boring so I looked through the art of Holbein for a medieval black death skeleton, picked one while I was also inspired by the skeletons on the second album of The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud, and combined that with a bagpipe and a kilt.

I had this idea of a Keltic dragon with the body of a Chinese dragon so I searched for some designs and had a friend combine these into one. After that I wanted the color red for the dragon. The artist finished it with a typical 'tatooish' tail.

I always liked the music, the logo and the message of Operation Ivy so I wanted their 'Unity'-logo on my back.

Booked my next tattoo for the 17th, pretty psyched for this one

The dude who'll do this said that it could be a problem to try a 1:1 approach on the skull's teeth because of the size (practically the image above on a A4 print) so he would have tried a little more stylized look

Next monday i'll see the sketch for it, hope it's good

Looks sweet. Tattoos are personal. I wouldnt worry so much about is or isnt feminine so much and more about getting a good piece by a good artist. Having said that it would suit a guy or girl IMO if that is what your worried about.

Hey guys, my tattoos aren't that interesting, but I would like to post a few works of my brother. He is a part time tattoo artist, part time ER surgeon.

Voila:

Session 3 Complete: Got 4 more bears in the background, 1 each for my father, mother, brother and sister. We also started the mountain backdrop. I used a reference image of the first 14er mountain I climbed in Colorado. My artist brought in a handful of Bob Ross paintings to use as inspiration for some of the landscape, trees etc.

Someone said I should post this here in another thread, so here I am! About 25+ hours in. The outlines for the second half were done about a month ago and were done pretty light, to allow for changes when we color em in. I think Zelda will be thrown in somewhere too and behind Ganon, his Pig form will be forming in the shadows.

Sorry for the shitty pics, colors are much more vibrant than they appear, kinda awkward to take by myself haha. Sorry for the Pic 'spolsion!

From a shear technical perspective, that is one gorgeous tattoo. The linework and value are impeccable, I imagine that must have cost a pretty penny.

Almost finished the first half of the tattoo. I still have to get the flowers colored and the inside of my arm done. Coming along nicely though.

I have an appointment with Josh Duffy in January. Extremely excited about that, anyone in San Pedro (or SoCal) know anyone with work from him?
That's cool, man. Looks like a Baroness album cover, haha. Getting a rose done on my inner forearm soon. Will post other pictures of my other tattoos later as well.

Nice call, it's actually a piece from John Dyer Baizley, the vocalist/guitarist of Baroness!

I did the inner part of my arm - next I have to get them tied together so to say... I think I'm going to do some black/grey stuff on my lower forearm and have some portrait roses fill in the gaps.

It's still healing, but I'll get pics soon.

EDIT: Holy thread resurrection.
