Thought I would send pictures of something fun from last week. I’ve been tattooing a long time now…sometimes I get grumpy as fuck but your blog cheers me the fuck up.
Thanks for sending this in! It’s looking good! Are you draped in a flag? And at first I thought you were tattooing a alternative Macklemore haha!
Thanks for the advice, anon!
My first tattoo. Done by Chelsea Shoneck, her first tattoo out of Loose Screw Tattoo in Richmond. What do you guys think?
This is so great! She did a fabulous job (as always!) Congratulations on the brilliant first tattoo!!
So I got tattooed by Alex Strangler today and I’m so freaking happy right now it’s unbelievable. It was done today at Evermore Gallery in Edwardsville, IL while she was guest-spotting. :)
OH!! That’s so lovely!! Congratulations! I’m so happy you got something by her (and slightly jealous!!)!
New tattoo! “Monsters are real. They live inside us and sometimes they come out to play” based on Stephen kings quote!
I get the idea behind this, but I’m confused by the text going all the way over to the hand. A tattoo like this that wraps is significantly harder to hide when needed, and also hard to cover up (unless with a full sleeve and hand tattoos) once you get tired off blurred text on your arm.
Check out my awesome new cute tattoos by @melaniemilnetattoos. They’re freakin amazing. I’m in love with them.

love never wanted me, but I took it anyway
You’re very lucky to have gone to such a talented artist for your first! Added him :)
Finished doodle I did which tbh I might have just designed a tattoo for myself bc now I want that tattooed on me. I’m doing it it’s going on my other shoulder blade it’s happening guys I literally just now made this decision but I really like it it’s goin on me
Let’s hope your artist won’t let that mess near your skin!
New tattoo, should fade while healing :3
Is this real? If so, that’s really messy :(
