Hey! The shop Angis Tattoo in Lithuania, Vilnius does some amazing work (https://www.facebook.com/angis.tattoo?ref=br_rs) I would reccomend looking at Martynas Snioka (http://www.thevandallist.com/martynas-snioka-tattoo-artist/) who does really interesting pieces, and also Monika (https://www.facebook.com/monika.butkut?fref=ts)
Thank you friend! Lithuania now has a grand total of 3 shop recommendations!! ;)
litterally just got an anon msg saying my native american tattoo is racist.
im sorry your misinformed and uneducated but since when was getting a beautiful tattoo to resemble a beautiful race and in memory of my gran that passed away who had many native friends that I knew aswell racist?
absolutely hate when people think everyone that gets native americans tattooed on them are just going threw a “fad”
I also dont know why “hate” blogs exist. picking on people because you dont agree with what theyve done to there body via tattoos is gross. its disgusting behaviour.
im a great believer that if you have nothing nice to say dont say anything at all. yeah have your opinion, but if its just to bring someone down whats the point in saying anything at all?
I just cant beleive some people actually need to do that, its a shame realy :’)
"HEADDRESSES IN NATIVE CULTURES
For the most part, headdresses are restricted items. In particular, the headdress worn by most non-natives imitate those worn by various Plains nations. These headdresses are further restricted within the cultures to men who have done certain things to earn them. It is very rare for women in Plains cultures to wear these headdresses, and their ability to do so is again quite restricted.
So unless you are a native male from a Plains nation who has earned a headdress, or you have been given permission to wear one (sort of like being presented with an honorary degree), then you will have a very difficult time making a case for how wearing one is anything other than disrespectful, now that you know these things. If you choose to be disrespectful, please do not be surprised when people are offended… regardless of why you think you are entitled to do this.
Even if you have ‘native friends’ or are part native yourself, individual choices to “not be offended” do not trump our collective rights as peoples to define our symbols.”

Thank you for the love, and good luck with your tattoo tomorrow!
Some of my work from this year so far. Part 2
This just made my day, you have no idea
We had so many ‘I thought this [Lady Gaga tattoo] was Hillary Clinton’ comments. So may I present to you, Hillary Clinton tattoos and a bonus Bill Clinton.
microphoneassassin ‘#this is a cool blog #it’s not what the name implies’
That should be our tag line.
Your best bet is to look through the section in our links and check out the shops we linked. Maybe you’ll find someone.
