  1. ok I´m new to this forum, i want to make a new tattoo on like my chest or something, but i cant really find something i really like, i like the tatto with 2 mask 1 glad and 1 crying but i know some people who has that tattoo and i want something different. I want a tattoo that is something like my life, im young and my family dont live rich.. since i was younger i was doing criminal things for money, my whole life, i have never been caught, i life in a "ghetto" i wont say in what country but what ever, i moved to this country when i was like 8years and since then we were pretty poor. I´m trying to live a good life when im not doing my "criminal things" for money, i try to study and everything, so i got pretty much a "double life".I dont want any colors in the tattoo, and nothing tooo big maybe in the sice of an ipad? hehe. Anyways hope u can give me some ideas or send me some cool tattoos that are relevent to my life. sorry for bad english hope u understand me.
  2. Hey guys. I figured I would create a new topic about Tattoo Conventions. I figured this would be a cool place to discuss upcoming shows and conventions that you previously have attended. Maybe share some experiences and pictures of some cool tattoos and things that go on at a Tattoo Convention. I would like to see what conventions you all have been to. Just to let everyone know, I work for The New York Tattoo Show. Our Tattoo Convention is seasonal and we have two a year in NYC and Long Island. Our Queens Tattoo Expo is The No Limits International Tattoo Expo. We also participate in a number of other Expos in the Country as well as in Europe. I would like to see where you guys have been. Let's get this list started!
  3. Well, getting right into it, I got my first tattoo 2 days ago. For the most part, it's going fine, I love it and it seems to be following the usual healing process. I do, however, have a little dent (about 3mm) and I'm not sure what it is (no smell, pain or discharge). When I finished the tattoo I didn't have it but after cleaning it a few times, while drying with a piece of paper, I noticed littles flakes of skin and ink coming out. Since then I have been more careful, but am just a bit worried. I've been searching around and haven't found anything that LOOKS similar, but from description I have two possible explanations 1- it was overworked and the skin caved in a bit; 2- when I dried it, I could've removed skin, since it was softer. I'm having a hard time taking pictures of it because it is so small, but I appreciate any help (: (in case anyone is wondering, it was done at a very reputable place and I am meeting with my artist in 2 weeks to see if I need a retouch, it was included in the price)
  4. Hello everyone, My name is Ryan and I’m a designer from the UK. I am currently working on a new project producing a book of tattoos from around the world. As well as exploring the various styles or tattoos and the history behind them the main aim of the book is to show off meaning full tattoos and the reasons behind them. All tattoos are unique and it would be good to give people the chance to explain the reasoning behind them to people who look at body art in a negative light. If you have some meaningful ink you wish to show off or if you are an artist who has worked on some special pieces and would like some exposure and would be interested in supplying images and a small description of the work in the book please get in touch with me. Everyone will be credited in the book with a link to their website / social media, or if preferred can remain anonymous. Please contact me at studio@ryanthedesigner.uk or on instagram @ryan_the_designer . Thank you Ryan

  10. Hi Everyone, I did this tattoo almost 4 weeks ago. I got an updated picture of the healed tattoo and the lines are not crisp anymore. Did I blow this out? I was using a tight 5rl. Some info on my machine. It's an Aaron Cain roundback liner. Runs at 135 cps and 49 duty cycle @ 6v. Point gap is a nickel. With a tight 5, it runs around 105 cps and duty cycle is 44 @ 6v. I find it's difficult for me to make solid black 1 pass lines when I use this machine. With some of the lines I had to go over them twice. I didn't think it would be an issue since I figure lining at 105 cps, I'd be able to essentially scope my lines. Any ideas on why this happened would be appreciated. If I didn't go deep enough...could it cause this to happen too? Or do blowouts only occur due to going too deep or angle of machine. I typically line around 70-90 degrees. This picture taken 5 mins after finishing the tattoo on 2/10/16 This picture taken today 3/9/16

  13. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and I wanted to share my latest drawing and to get some of your thoughts (things to improve for future drawing etc.)
  14. Hey guys, I recently got a new tattoo and on of the lines is kind of crooked. I am wondering if there is a possible way to fix it. The line is thin, maybe making it thicker would fix it? I paid a lot for it, and I feel that it should not have this issue for the price. I am attaching the image, you can see it on the bottom line as it goes right, and a little bit on the top line as it goes right. It looks worse in person and even worse when looking in the mirror. If you guys have any questions feel free to ask. I also wanted to mention that it is just kind of annoying because it is the first think people mention when they see it instead of saying it looks great.
  15. Betty boop tattoo I did yesterday. Feed back appreciated. Still learning.
  16. just looking for some feedback on this recent lantern composition I drew, (how the line weights are, composition, strong and week points, flow and lay out, etc.) thanks for any feed back offered
  17. I just did this one yesterday and really liked it, so I thought I'd share...=3 I really took my time on this one and tried not to rush it...some of the greywash in the background is still a little choppy, but I like the overall result.
  18. Came across this tonight and thought of you guys, Enjoy! I had a good laugh <iframe width="480" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/2w2axPEbJb4?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> RIP Bob Ross

  20. I was wondering if tattoo ink stains your skin? How long do the stains last? Would certain conditions (Such as heat or sun exposure) make it stain longer? I know it seems dumb and random, but my friend-self appointed patron of all things piercing and tattoo related-says it doesn't stain at all. And I think it would to some extent, considering the fact that when deposited subcutaneously the shit lasts forever... I'm also curious about the longevity of a stain-would it last as long as the ink from say, a sharpie? And the science behind it, why the difference in staying power between the inks? I don't really know why, but I seriously want to know about this.
