Times Have Changed but Respect Remains the Same

July 9th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Reference | Tips - (Comments Off)

I find it hard to have respect for the youngsters that don’t have any respect for the process.  I understand the idea of wanting to have all your visible spots tattooed first, I mean who doesn’t want to look “cool” as fast as possible.  And thats your prerogative, but at least now you know how its seen by those in the know.  But here is the deal, things are not respected when they are not earned, and then its seen more as a trend, getting your neck or hands tattooed too soon makes you look like your trying to hard, it makes you look like a poser.  The time, the work, and the process is what gives you that respect that you kids are looking for by doing it, and when you go through it the right way you’ll respect it more for yourself and people will respect you more, because they will see what you have went through to get to that point.  It wont just be the image, it will be you.  Its like standing at the finish line with out running the race.

Thanks Tim Hendricks for this great visual example. your the best.

Ps In the past we used to call hand and neck tattoos “Job Stoppers” and thats a whole other issue, of course society is changing and much more excepting but this issue is still a pertinent factor.

Play This For Your Kids “Sunscreen” by Baz Luhrmann

July 2nd, 2012 | Posted by admin in Reference | Videos - (Comments Off)

I must have heard this at least ten years ago,  I feel the messages every time I listen.  It may be old but the message is very pertinent.  Play this for your kids, play this for yourself.

‎”Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blind side you at 4 PM on some idle Tuesday.”

Is the Magic Gone ? Words by Tim Hendricks

June 29th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Friends | Reference | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

Are the blind leading the blind in tattooing these days? This is a question that has been a major topic of discussion between my peers lately. With tattooing becoming as popular as it is these days every person that knows how to doodle wants to become a tattooer. I can only complain about it so much before I start feeling sad and a bit responsible as a result of partaking in crappy reality TV. When I first watched a tattoo being made it felt like I was in something out of a J.R.R. Tolkien book, it felt totally magical and mysterious, and in some ways it really was. Myke Chambers described it best when he said “This local tattooer was like a wizard to me”. Tattooers would perform the most amazing magic act, and they’d be damned if they would teach you how their trick was done. Now days you can go to a ‘school’ for tattooing and pay money in trade for second-rate so-called knowledge on how to tattoo. It’s a terrible shame, those who know little or nothing about our trade trying to teach the undeserved how to tattoo… for money. (more…)

When I get a few minutes from time to time, I bounce around the worldwide web looking for fun stuff and cool pictures, its like a modern swap meet and the goodies you find are photos and links.  I came across this one of Abbey on The Blonde Journal. I’m pretty sure that blogs for Women, but the thing is there is a lot of photos of pretty ladies on there, and I’m into that, especially photos of fashionable woman.  Women with style, what’s not to like.
