people asking others about their opinions about the tattoo they want to get should not get tattoos imo.

I think it's a different story when you are trying to achieve traditional Chinese/Japanese with historical accuracy with one's tattoo choice.

what does that have to do with the tat bro?

and the subject was Kaws tats, i havent seen many people with Kaws tats so I mean when that topic of that comes up what else would you use as a reference

Honestly I think that would be sick as fuck. Kaws is one of my fav artists of all time and fuck what other people think of your tattoos. Never get one to please someone else, get them for you and what they mean to you.

100% Agree..

it doesnt matter, i honestly just thought the idea of it would be something hb would flame....almost like getting a supreme box logo tat or some shit.

anyways in the grand scheme of things, my kaws work wouldnt really compare to the other work i wanna get done. i was just simply interested in other's opiniona. im still 17, month away from 18, so im playing around with some ideas.
April 05, 2010 @ 23:40:36
you sure are playing.

Oh i should also add that normally, if you want the artist to sign the tattoo once its done, that cost an arm and a leg as well... either way though, best of luck with that, coz i remember when i was still studying i knew a guy who booked an appointment with Shige and had to wait 5 years to see him... but i never saw his work since i left before he went to get the work done...


Yeah Shige no longer takes apps. anymore.. Last year he did a reservation policy instead.. Basically what alot of the top artists are doing nowadays.. They will just pick the tattoos they want to do and set u up with a date.. Its that date or no date basically... Keeps them from just constantly adding people to the app. list and having to do tattoos that arent even worth the time... Shige is always at the Las vegas tattoo convention though, a crazy ass booth and that is prolly the only time(if not flying to japan) u will ever get to get work done.. But your chances a very VERY slim and which i think if u are from the states u will reserve u to that date he is there, if u get picked..

Reason, u just suck it up realize it wont happen for many years or ever.. So u go to the next best dude which in my opinion, get booked with Horiyen aka jess yen here in the states.. He is a master, he has one of the best styles in the world, and he isnt that high up there yet in price.. I still need to go make a deposit but been to busy to drive up there.. Have to go up soon though!

Yea I understand that, but shoge doesn't even do hand tattooing so worrying about the extra cost of that isn't a concern of mine. Also with me not being a drinker, or smoker, soon to be deployed, and always in foreign countries for training, with no kids or wife I don't spend much money on myself. Plus being disciplined enough to put money aside from each payment. Also I'm in no rush to get anything done since I may change and not want to get a certain thing tattooed. I'm not stuck on shige/tomo either. It would just be a dream. Hori-yen is actually more expensive than shige and I've heard he takes longer than "normal". I was looking inot any of the guys from state of grace but they're booked like none other aswell. I think they charge around 150 an hour for machine tattos. I really like horitomo. It sucks though cause it seems like all the good artist are booked to the eyeballs.

Good luck with that man...i know tattoo artists who waited 5 years to get touched my fillip leu so consider it an honor if he evens gives you a response..your young and by the way your talking sounds like you got some $$ so hopefully you get that tatoo in the meantime start getting inspired go to a museum go get some books hit up a tattoo convention and peep real work..and remeber just bcuz theyre big names doesnt mean theyre good..experience goes a long way..

yea I've got graduation money, money just saved over the years, child support that I now have access to, and military career just being started Ill have some bankroll. Not much but having no kids or anyone else to support, and if I can be matue with my spending Ill hopefully have enough. I know, big names aren't everything. I just really like the way his tattoos blend, and how things look seemless. I dunno. But hey hit me up with any good artists you know. I'm looking for either neo-japanesish, or traditional with a little more..idunno new schoolish look.

When trying to join the militsry they will ask about any tattoos you have. You aren't allowed to have any tattoos on your head, neck, hands or anything on the chest visible in dress uniform, or gang related/offensive tattoos. ( basically anything that shows in v necks. ) anything excessive like full sleeves or backpices, suits will pretty much make it impossible to join. But once you in you can get anything you want as long as its not on hands/neck/face or is offensive/gang related. Of course the offensive part is pretty much bs because what's offnesive to some others (espicially in the marines) may find it perfectly acceptable. Also tattoos make it impossible to join any specialized unit, and if you have sleeves you can't be a DI. I know a marsoc marine who has full sleeves and a backpiece. So since I'm shotting for marsoc id have to wait a few years anyway.

For the right artist, I would consider it, though the piece I want isn't that big, I want the shit well done, and money ain't really an issue.
