    tattoos.

    I love tattoos. my first love over anything. I got my first one when I was 19.
    I am 28 now and am almost covered. I own a shop, and love whatching others get ink. I was just curious, how many people here got ink? also, anyone see any distortion due to getting bigger?
    I am starting a new back piece, I am into it for about 11 hours now. I will post a pick very soon. if ya got it....lets see it.
    show em off people

    First was at 16 with a hairdryer motor and needle & thread. two half sleeves extending to pecs to make work easier with a short sleeve shirt and half of a back piece. Very addictive, but so few good artists out there. I know it will probably never happen but I've wanted a piece by Paul Booth for a loonnggg time. I hear his wait list is insane if you're lucky enuf to make it on. The Lieu's and Guy Aitchisson are also awesome. No cam with me, maybe later.

    DK, kind of hard to see, but the color on your right arm looks pretty vibrant. What's the design?

    I got my first at 16 (redone at 22), second at 17 (which has been extended 4 times), third geze... umm, 19 I guess (already redone and added onto), 4ths 22 (lower back), 5th 25 (last Dec/Jan) shoulder blade to shoulder blade, my upper back.. I'm addicted but I work in an office and with clients so I have to keep them where I can hide them too!

    The upper back I wanted for years but never did it because I knew it would be big.. when I hit 25 I figured what the hell, you only live once and my tattoo guy is an excellent artist (he did 90% of my work)..

    I have to say, people make more of a big deal out of it then it is... but I'm not the type to care what others think... I love my ink!

    Oh, I've changed size throughout the years and nothing drastic to any of the ink. I've put on quite a bit of size in my upper body from when I got my back done too...

    I have 2. One on each arm. And one planned for my bavk. The one on my right arm goes most of the way around, and it distorts when I flex.

    Buy you are all right, they are very addictive!!!!

    Does any one know of any quality artists in Vancouver or Victoria BC Canada?
    I am planing out my next tattoo which will be a 3/4 sleeve and want only the best on my skin. Also I was thinking of having Jeff Bartels design it for me as it will have a celtic stone theme to it, what do you think?

    Cool work, it adds a lot of depth, If you're a diver it takes on a whole new meaning. I really like the use of water in tattoo work especially Japanese traditional with Coi, samurai, and circular waves. I've got a 1/2 sleeve with a dragon interlaced with fire and water on one arm that I like. I have been debating getting an octopus tat for a long time, I've seen some done that are phenomonal.
