  1. thanks
  2. yesterday,.
  3. I need to apologise to you.. did not realise you were a lady, and thought i was speaking with a guy. I really do need to learn how to read properly after all. please don't mind the guys here, their acting like dicks is their way of getting your attention. even me, i only did it because it was hurting inside.. to look at your profile, without an ice breaker. adm is a good artist, but his tattoos cost money. if you ask me.. fuckin aristocrat, that s not what we look for! i would suggest that you block him. then mark.. only cares about fishing. I d block him too.. dave ... doesn't know shit either, didn't even like my beautiful light house, that one.. I blocked him a long time ago. i think the tatoo artist you went to was a clear cunt, especially since you told him (after him showing useless interest in you and wasting your time).. that you didn't mean to pay jack shit for your tattoo. he was also a jerk for acting surprised that you weren't gonna pay for your tattoo, since you had already mentioned to the busy man that you were lazy and unemployed. as you say, and I agree - you should deffo find another artist, and dismiss the one whose tattoo you cannot afford to pay anyway (small detail). it is all your choice and his loss, of course. another suggestion... might try call the tattooist again and tell him something along these lines - hey dipshit, remember that 15$ offer i made to you? well, it just went down to $7. Donald trump style. perhaps he ll panic, and grovel for you to reconsider. last but not least, don't forget to specify the exact time and day when you re available, for him to make any necessary cancellations / amendments in order to accommodate. hope this helps. xx
  4. beg to differ, he asked what you could afford... which from your part was not even remotely close to reasonable.. and I think you shouldn't even have stepped a foot in the shop. perhaps he was trying to be nice and not overprice, or to see what style to go for in respect to your budget.. till you shat all over it by offering 15 bucks. you asked for advice, and got an opinion. if you cant humble up and take it, I d say cut your attitude and go cry to yo mama. I m not here to cuddle you or fix your ego. you can kiss my balls if you like though.. for 15 bucks.
  5. many times not because a cover is not done well, but because what they wish to cover is scarred and raised..
  6. I hear you, I feel there was a time when those who know would shut up, and those who don't know would talk a lot.. I think for this, many have left. don't mean to hijack a thread tho
  7. no offence, but if you go to buy a bottle of whiskey, then tell the shop keeper, I have a dollar... is like you re jerking his chain. not sure who was rude to whom here. how much d you think he would profit, deducting supply expenses (clip cord covers, machine covers, Vaseline, blade, napkins, bandage, stick tape, Vaseline, tongue depressor, grips, needles, disinfectant, stencil, ink, ink caps, rent, electricity, and his time, from those 15$? I sometimes wonder if these posts are intentionally written to get us going..
  8. not sure if the parallel lines and lamp contour are affected by the photo angle, however the lower red stripe could use some lowering, towards the left, to even up.. i also thought the lettering could be sharper... perhaps a bit more shading on the handle, and lower part of the lamp... thanks for your feedback
  9. all shapes are good. it s actually nice to see someone starting small, with the very basics, way i feel it should be. might be good to experiment with different line thicknesses, long throw, shorter throw, - see what difference in results, or what groupings work better with what... pulling a line towards you, away from you.. gain confidence with things of the sort...
  10. hey mark, harsh is good.. only way to learn. (my girl would tell me that after tattooing practice skin, then start calling me names right afterwards) at least you have an ipad lol. call me a dinosaur, but could never feel comfortable using them either..
  11. thanks dave, 2 sessions, top part first, then the lower bit.
  12. as always, feedback appreciated - sprry for crap photo
  13. any comments, as always welcome.. edit : been bustin my nuts with a lot of little things, since the forum s new layout... anyone knows if there s an option to rotate pic?
  14. dont ask, just put her on your shoulder... and come over i dont know.. personally feel like... yes, a lot - perhaps the majority of realist tattoos will lose the contrast in time - but only due to bad planning. however i do not believe outline is a necessary requirement for longevity.. i mean, outline is only black ink, in the right place, at the end of the day.. it s a safer way, for sure, but i think if one can, through proper use of black, before starting the colour, have appropriate contrast, a tattoo will still hold together in time... shit, i think i just managed to hijack this thread...
  15. 2 questions for you mark; what d you mean by realism tattoos from 5 years back? and...when you comin to malta for a proper holiday and a beer?
