Wow that cover up is probably the best i've ever seen. Most i've looked at you can still see at least a faint bit of what was formerly there. Some real amazing artists around the place.

Getting some work done on my Marvel sleeve next week. Already had 10 hours done, got a 7 hour session on Monday then 7 more next month. Hopefully then it will be complete. I'll post some pics up next week, from what has been done so far, the guy's colouring is amazing. He be called Ping Pong.

If you go to http://www.dafont.com/, select a genre then type in the start of the lyric. It will give you a display of what it will look like in all the fonts of that genre and you can browse through. If you want help actually getting the full lyrics off the site in a particular font just PM and i'll help you out.

I think it was about 14 hours of work all up. The design was done by a friend of my brother's https://www.facebook.com/Missfinklestein here. Not sure where he got the art done but I've texted him, will get back to you when he replies.

Does anyone have any good suggestions of Tattoo Parlours preferably specialising in Old School in California?? I'm heading to the States at the end of the year and have a piece in mind that I have been meaning to get and thought it would be cool to get it done over there if I could find somewhere good! Cheers

p.s Those portraits above are out of control!!

That's pretty sweet. I have some seen some decent stuff come out from Canberra, and my lady friend got a really well done Lion King piece from Queanbeyan. But as with everything, the places have bad reviews as well as good. I'm loving the guy in sydney who does my stuff though.

Just got back in contact with an old school friend. He got this done whilst travelling through central america. Because of time constraints he did an 8 hour session then backed it up with a 2 hour session the following day.

haha! When I went in to get it done I was looking at her drawings on the wall and yours was up there along with mine & she said "yours and Nates are sister tattoos". Naaaaw. Ooo and my next session is in September too!

Yeah she's fucking amazing. So beautiful!

For those of you interested... (sorry for the shitty instagram photo)


Merry designed it all from a few vague emails I sent her. Bless her cotton socks!
