      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

  1. Help me select tattoo

    I would advise working with a local professional artist in your area on designs. A forum like this is prob not the best place to solicit ideas for something as meaningful as what you are describing. Good luck!
  2. Hi

    The old skin was a custom skin and I ran into problems every time the sw needed to be upgraded. Since site traffic is way down, it just doesn't make financial sense to keep doing the custom skins unfortunately. Also, every time they upgrade a whole number things totally change. BTW, good to see some familiar faces! Hope everyone is well!
  3. Assistance from admin

    Found him, but can't find any record of a membership payment. Have him get in touch with me...

    I can look into it, but the name "eternal forges" doesn't show up for me.

  6. Forum Software Update!

    Folks, after more time than it should;ve taken we have updated the forum website to the latest version. Good news: We hope to start addressing some of the IPN server/ communication issues for pending Paypal payments. Also, poke around and start using TAGS which help users and search engines find content more readily. Bad News: The previous custom skin no longer works with this sw version so it may look rather bland for a while while we think about best ways to dress it up (if at all). Also... ***IMPORTANT*** You will now need to log in with display name, rather than login name. In older sw versions display name/login name were different. Moving forward you will ONLY use your display name (login name is useless). That means for example, I now have to login as "J.J. Flash" which is my exact display name. Thanks to everyone for the patience.
  7. No Access

    Sending you email now.
  8. Purchasing Membership

    The issues in question relate to either customer's paying via Paypal wherein their account is not linked and so payment gets marked as pending while Paypal clears. However, for some reason Paypal doesn't let the site know when it clears so (for now) has to be done manually. Also, still battling to get forum sw upgraded to determine if sw or hosting company is the cause of database errors. It's as frustrating for me to have to deal with as well. Thx for your patience and always, if there's an issue....just email. Mizio, you should be sorted now.
  9. Paid But Can't Post?

    Was on hold. Should work now.
  10. Having to upgrade the site sw and due to spam posts and comments in the blog, rather than painstakingly manually reviewing and deleting each one, we're going to need to delete all blogs and disable that feature. Not that many people use it so hopefully y'all understand. On the bright side, we discovered what got us manually banned from search engines
  11. Hey guys, As some of the older members know, I am no longer tattooing and have not been for over 5-years. During that time I have become less active on the site to the point of not really paying much attention to the daily activity. We’ve had server issues with our host, and I just learned that the site is no longer indexed in Google due to some spammy posts that happened around January of this year. This meant that the site was no longer showing up in Google searches and thus the numbers of new members declined significantly, leading to an almost complete slowdown of activity on the site. I am now working on removing those posts and applying for reconsideration in the index. It is my hope that through some general maintenance, the site will start slowly getting new members again and regain some of the community that made it such a wonderful resource to begin with. Also, if anyone is still reading this, feel free to get in touch if you’d be interested in being a moderator. We’ve lost more than a few good men (and women). Hope life is treating you all well. JJ
  12. Purchasing Membership

    Should be resolved now. Yeah, site's ben slow...have been AWOL for a while, now just looking at things and appears Googel dropped us from index for sp@mmy posts. Nutz...
  13. Purchasing Membership

    Sorry for delay. Try now.
  14. Membership Problem

    My pleasure. TBH I am never on here anymore...so sometimes emails/posts get missed. But glad we sorted it out.
  15. Boney called it...The artist who did it asked not to be named. Mind you, that was back in 07 at a time when the "learn how to tattoo" thing was a BIG no-no. However, I honor my wor dand will take that secret to the grave Quite honestly, at some point I'd like to revisit the logo/site design (skin) but that would cost money and time...and life is short
