  1. Sublime Sun Lining

    yeah I realized that after posting that it was an album cover, looks like shit to me but im a grumpy old git apparently. Try drawing something original that's within your capabilities,I seen your rose and you even made that look painful. take smaller steps and you'll get there in the end. After I read your post on the sublime sun thing I got a bit worried when you said you were ready to stencil it......please tell me you're NOT gonna transfer that to stencil paper to tattoo on someone?
  2. Sublime Sun Lining

    The concept is there but it needs to be more symmetrical it just looks like a lop-sided doodle and the moustache thingy is way off. Nothing wrong with using a protractor ,a glass or a plate for a circle if it’s gonna help πŸ˜‰
  3. neck scars vs tattoos

    He could always wear a burka, they’re fashionable at the moment....apparently!
  4. Ideas to complete tattoo

    Maybe some more light bulbs πŸ’‘to brighten it up a bit. 🀣 lol, I fuckin crack me up sometimes! πŸ˜‚
  5. Hero tattoo help

    A contest?! πŸ€” lol 🀣
  6. neck scars vs tattoos

    Grow yourself a nice hipster beard . The turtle neck sounds like a good plan but it’s sooooo 1970’s 🀣
  7. Go back to your artist and say " I'm here to get this finished ....properly !"
  8. πŸ€”...he lied!
  9. Here's a suggestion... stay away from the artist who placed the hawk there.... surely you seen the stencil after it was applied??
  10. Disappearing tattoo ink

    Invisible ink? That makes sense ..... to hipsters who want to follow trends. why would you pay ( good money, as I assume the artist would still charge a decent rate! )for a tattoo only to have it disappear ? πŸ€” Pretty sure that you will die penniless AND stupid, but that's just my personal opinion πŸ˜‚
  11. Machine frames

    Depends if you're painting portraits or the toilet door πŸ˜‚
  12. Hello from Canada!

    the 'line' in the middle of the hand should be curved the other way in my opinion as that is the more prominent line on anyones hand. have a look at your own hand for comparison, and yes, you do have a fold there but the pic isn't realism so I think you tried too hard to put in a lesser detail. Its not really a big deal, but can be confusing to another artist .apart from that its a nice start
  13. Any ideas for a half skull tattoo?

    try refining your search to 'undead girl tattoo' or 'undead lady' or similar,there are literally thousands that you can get ideas from, or on the other hand you can always go talk to an artist and ask for something to be drawn up specifically for you, you will probably be charged a deposit but the money usually comes off the price when you get the tattoo done, or maybe that's why your here looking to score a free drawing?
  14. Nice, and you are sharing it with us because...? πŸ€”
  15. Pelikan Ink Not For Tattoos?

    You didn't feel confident that he was using the correct ink?!?! i don't know what you do for a living but that's like someone with no experience in your line of work telling you how to do your job. Covering any kind of tribal is a hard enough job without choosing white to have it covered with! In my opinion let the artist do what he does best and don't interfere. just saying! πŸ€”
  16. Machine frames

    So really what you are saying is you want to "assemble" your own machines (big difference between building and assembling!)
  17. Green Soap used to dilute ink?

    Are you sure it was green soap? Maybe he picked up his wash-bottle and just added plain old water ( as that's what some artists use) How much do you actually know about the tattooing process? Distilled water or witchazel is the norm for 'diluting' or thinning ink/ pigment.Was this done in a shop or someone's kitchen? Most infections come from poor aftercare like NOT following the aftercare instructions that you were given. Is it a colour tattoo? If so, there are a lot of red inks out there that many people have bad reactions to. A pic might help
  18. What a joke, did laugh however at the names of the people doing this... Dolyttle and Seamore,do little work and see more cash! Fuckin scamming cunts, go out and get a real job ya ponce bastards and don't try to coin in from others hard work and effort, by the way the sugar skull on your page looks like it was done in a kitchen, so who are some of these other 800 artists that will be featured in your "great book scam"?
  19. clip cords... durable

    Lol, I just noticed at does look a wee bit like a cross
  20. clip cords... durable

    Here's another wee shader I built a while back runs like a dream thanks to the wes coils, its mild steel polished to a mirror finish
  21. Ruthless Tv Dead Cherub Interview

    There actually is a part to the forum called "the library", Section for discussing books, videos and reference materials. Note: Please DO NOT share or post links to copyrighted material. I'm pretty sure you can post there even though you are a 'junior' member. as David says it's tattoo related but I think you are missing the whole point of this forum like a lot of new members who are constantly asking "what should I get for my first/second/cover up etc....The main aim here is to help those who would like to become tattooists learn without being in a shop. Artwork, technical aspects of tattooing, hygiene , machine tuning etc. No artist is gonna give away hints and tips in an interview which is what people on here are here for! MacπŸ˜‰
  22. clip cords... durable

    So Lola is chucked on the scrap heap? , then again I'm sure Nippy described it as something like a scrap pirate ship or something like that! πŸ˜‰
  23. My 5th tattoo I've done.

    11 rl doesn't mean you go over the line 11 times ! I really hope this is on yourself as your lines are a bit all over the place like someone with advanced Parkinson's disease tattooed it. You say you noticed the inconsistency in the clouds.... what about the top lines of SLL the sails?
  24. question about fax machine for stencils

    I'm sure Fax machines are thermal unlike a dot matrix/ impact printer which will work with either hand draw stencil paper or thermal stencil paper.fax machines do work as I used one about 7 years ago but can be a bit of a pain in the ass to get used to reversing your drawing. Try hunting down a cheap 24 pin dot matrix printer it'll save you some heartache
  25. i need some tattoo ideas

    ...and out of the whole internet you found a skull with half a mask and a butterfly πŸ€”I think you never looked very hard!
