    started my right arm modification/sleeve yesterday with a 4-hour session. the elephant was there already but the artist wanted to re-outline it before starting shading (he did the original work 9 years ago when he was just getting started!)

    Damn, nice, t-bone. I don't have a hard-on for tattoos, but this is really, really good.

    Gotta agree with you. That is one dope tattoo.

    I wish there were more abstract tattoos out there. I think they'd age better than representational imagery and take on more meaning or significance than representational forms. I'd think the constantly changing canvas would lend better to abstraction rather than highlight the transience of representational figures, in which the changing canvas only cements the fact that they refer to an instance in time that has passed. This seems counter to most people's reason for getting a tattoo--they feel like what is being tattooed is so close to them that they want to hold on to it forever...Unless that's the idea: I've put something on myself at this moment and from this point forward it will forever misrepresent my original intention.
    Plus I think as far as canvasses go, a flat one (i.e. not the body) better represents the two dimensional than a three dimensional canvas, which better represents the abstract, given that the two-dimensional is inherently superficial and the three dimensional is inherently contextualized in the abstract. I do think the two-dimensional could work on the three-dimensional, but if nothing else, play with that dynamic--don't ignore it. Most often I see (in this thread and in books), the two-dimensional projected onto the three dimensional in a way that ignores that the three-dimensional has, of course, three dimensions.

    Are there any studios / artists in Sydney and Auckland worth checking out? I am going in a couple of weeks and want some souvenirs...
    Hi. I like your necklace. - It's actually a rape whistle, but the whistle part fell off.

    If you like traditional (Old School) style, there is Sacred Tattoo in Auckland.

    I'm thinking about getting my first tattoo. I've always wanted one on my forearm but was thinking it would be a bad place to get my first one. What do you guys think?

    Also what are your thoughts on colors? I am thinking going all black. Colored tats seem tacky to me.

    You should get a "What should I buy?" in all the colours of the rainbow, and maybe a second one with "Look up the facts before you write stupid things" that would sum up your career here.
