not sure if mentioned yet but check out the work by Filip Leu. From what i understand he tattoos out of Switzerland and is selective of whom he tattoos because he wants to use whole body parts that are tattooless. his work is amazing

my tattoo artist has leu work done on him and it takes about 2 years to get an appointment. he has some really nice work and very average stuff but his amazing work is incredible.

a lot of great tattoos in this thread. I have a few myself that I don't regret but were definitely learning experiences through trial and error (which is not something I would suggest with permanent ink) but thankfully most can be corrected.

I have a tribal on my left arm, shoulder, chest, back, and learned a lot about tattoos from getting it. I'm not asian but I love the asian styles, it's a tattoo art that has been perfected and IMO is so popular amongst all cultures because it just looks so vivid.
This is a half sleeve I want to get done by Andy Engel in Germany, who also is the artist of the work in the picture. I hope I can get an appointment...any advice from tattoo aficionados are welcome in respect to duration and average cost. I think it will be less than 12 hours since it's a half sleeve shoulder to elbow...


Price vary from artist to artist, some charge by piece some charge by the hour. I suggest you to break it down to 2-3 sessions if you can, 12 hr straight is brutal for the person getting tattoo and for the tattoo artist. But if your traveling than i guess you have to suck it up.

i would also say you are underestimate the time it might take to do a full color piece like that. I don't know how big your limbs are but i have the front half of my lower leg blasted in black and gray and it took 10 hr. Probably gonna take another 10hr to finish the back of the leg and i have chicken legs.....

wow, good info, I'll be lucky if I even get an appointment, so hard to get in with good artists these days especially if you travel a lot and don't stick around long enough in the same place to go back for touch ups. Although I will be coming back to Germany every few months it's hard to schedule ahead..I still want to finish my left and right half sleeves and I want a side piece on the right side...lots of work ahead!!

Worlds tallest urinal.
It was on a drive from Orlando Florida to Chicago Illinois. I don't know where, I only stopped for gas and to piss. Whole thing was a blur. But yeah, 99.9% of the time, no, I don't have to tip toe to piss. Just this one gas station.

Uhh...cuz Harry Potter is the best book series ever. Are you serious? Damn, HB is a crazy place.

Apr 17, 2012 @ 05:34
You see wayyyy too much regret working in the industry.
Apr 17, 2012 @ 05:34
that was an honest question. so youre telling me you got them because you just enjoyed the books?
Apr 17, 2012 @ 05:52
People get tattoos of shit that means something to them... Harry Potter means something to him, I was going to get a death eater tattoo but decided against it while sitting in the chair

People have star wars tattoos...

Why not Harry Potter
