I’m so sorry this happened to you! Make sure people know it’s yours wherever it gets posted (link to the original) and I guess you know what tattoo artist you’re never going to!

So I was @ work and this guy came in w/ a huge Darth Vader tattoo on his hand. It looked like a pug/Vader mash up so I asked him if he had any pugs and he just looked at me like I was nuts. Also this was his only visible tattoo :/ :/

Devon Dorrity is an award-winning fantasy figure sculptor based out of  Mountain Green, Utah. His sculptures have been featured in Spectrum 20: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, ImagineFX: June 2014, and in The Museum of American Illustration’s Spectrum Exhibit in September 2014.

Devon started sculpting seriously in 2012 after being invited to attend a modeling session at Adonis Bronze by Dennis Smith.

His first finished piece was a 78” monument sized figurative piece entitled Queen of the Seas. It is a Cecaelia, a mythical human octopus hybrid creature. Then several other sculptures followed including The Sorceress and Wood Nymph.

It's not tattoo related but I assume one of you or your followers can help me. I went from 16mm which I have been at from February time to an 18mm a couple of days ago by inserting a silicone plug (which I've never done before) and my ears have blown out. It's not a bad blow out but still a blow out, Which has left me in a lot of pain. I have taken both plugs out but that was hours ago and they are still bleeding, any advice of how I can help my ears apart from salt soaks and tea tree oil?

Hi there,

All piercing type questions should go to http://safepiercing.tumblr.com/ 

Thanks

The tattoo policies that I've seen generally state no visible tattoos. As long as it is covered, it shouldn't be an issue, but it depends on the culture of your workplace. I like to ask about the dress code during an interview so that I can prepare in advance to cover my tattoos. For instance, if a uniform won't cover the tattoos on my arms, I will buy some 3/4 sleeve shirts to wear underneath the uniform.

I forgot people probably wanted to see these.
One more session in February to finish shadows and highlights.

would you happen to know how bad or safe a choice an ankle tattoo would be regarding job interviews? (could I just "hide" a tattoo like that during an interview by wearing pants and put on skirts after I got the job? would that be considered lying?)

Hey there, that really depends on the type of job you have and what the dress code is! They might even specify these things somewhere (if tattoos on the extremities are allowed). If it’s a job where you’d wear long trousers and socks and shoes every day, then I don’t think you’d have anything to worry about. 
Does anyone have any insight to this?

License can indeed be revoked as well as you can pay a huge ass fine and possibly be set to jail depending on your state. The only time it’s considered okay is if you’ve got proper paperwork stating the building you’re in has been okay-ed by the health inspector and they’re lurking on premises. And there’s some other paperwork and tests the artist needs to have (think tattoo convention standards).
