Whoa, whoa, whoa.....you don't know exactly where the ink is going! I'd find that out before I requested photos! :eek:

Lmao!!!!! Good one!!! You can rest assured I still have ample room on areas of my body not needing to be covered. I'm actually doing the back of both hands. Monday the first one will be done. Once it heals, I'll do the other.

Love to see what these guys can do with ink on skin. Though it is not for me, I really enjoy the art and respect those that like it.

I know a guy in Greensboro, NC that is a really good artist that does amazing work. My best friend has everything done by him and its amazing at the level of talent. I think you may appreciate his work if I can find something. Though I am sure the level of talent in NYC trumps that of where I am.

Yeah they are both extremely talented. Lior is more into macabre and very dark images. He did a full body suit for a buddy of mine. I CAN NOT wait for Monday to get here!!!

Wow get ready for 5 hours of pleasure......orrrr pain depending on how you look at it. haha. I've been wanting to get my hands done as well just haven't made the time to go on vaca and get it done. I work with my hands in some grimy situations so its tough to make the time in my busy season.

Check this out. I did it a while back when getting my chest done. Maybe you can create something similar while your at it.http://vimeo.com/user8432744/last-minute-octopus

I am amazed at the outstanding talent of many tattoo artists! I personally don't have any because I can't see myself stuck with the same artwork for the rest of my life! I change my home decorations frequently; it would drive me crazy knowing that I wouldn't be able to change my skin art! :smile:

Thanks man, the artists name is Joey 'Grism', he's at Chosen Tattoo in Phoenix,AZ. I really cant seem to find an artist in nj/ny that I can get to know well enough to trust getting a tattoo from (not yet at least).

My chest was in one sitting and was about 8/9 hours straight sketch/outline/color, a few smoke breaks for him where I changed the camera angle and lens. It was bit extreme and we finished somewhere around 4am. I felt like a corpse afterwards.
I also agree with you man, work on the knees definitely hurts like crazy. anything near my thinner skin is really tough to get threw So I can imagine your hands getting work with all the cartilage and tendons there, ouch. Maybe shoot some short clips, even if its with an iPhone if your friend isn't camera savvy. haha

Have fun man.

NINE straight hours?!?!?!?! You're INSANE!!!!!!!!!! (In a good way of course) :biggrin: Check out these guys... And let me know if and when you're looking to get some ink I'd LOVE to come along and film it for ya!!

Liorcifer http://www.infernumnyc.com/Home.aspx - Manhattan (doing my hand Monday)

Paul Acker http://deepsixlab.com - Philly (Not booking right now)

Ty Pallota http://www.777tattoos.com - Barnegat NY (my buddy is covered in Ty's work, GREAT artist)

Tim Kern http://www.tribulationtattoo.com/tattoo-artists - Manhattan

Hope this helps


love the art and must admit I have seen some amazing work, but personally its not for me. I cant think of any art I want permanently attached to my body.

on the other hand if they could make them changeable so that when my passions changed I could also change my art I would be all over it :biggrin:
Edward, I would LOVE to be able to change my ink with my moods and likes at the moment!!! LOL THAT would be great!!! Tattooing has come such a long way and the artists today are AMAZING at what they do.
