Post pics of your tatts

Recommended Posts

I'll let my new one settle down a bit first, its peeling at the moment, all he added is a skull under water, more water on my forearm, 4 cherry blossoms, one for each of my girls, and this will be the only colour on my arm, the girls are picking their own colours.

 

Miami ink produces some of the worst tattoos I have seen, Chris Carver is the only class act in there. I know its a show so they only show some crappy little ones, but they are crap. Trevor McStay from Dynamic was asked to do a guest spot at Kat Von D's new shop for a week, but he is not even taking bookings at the moment. Geordie Cole from Tatto Magic is another legend. Those 2, and Giovanni, would be the best, all booked for well over 2 years. Trevor tattos Geordie.

 

Giovanni is the name of the guy who is doing the sleeve on my right arm. He is booked for a long long time,2009 I think.

 

He actually did the Dragon on Pink's thigh, the frog on her foot, one on her arm, and 2 near her poonani. She gets tattoed by him whenever she comes down. He has done heaps of celebs but he is extremely modest.

 

He grew up with Fillip Leu( not sure on spelling ), he is widely regarded world wide as the best, Google him. I have seen his tatts on Giovanni and Nina's tattoist Evan at Dynamic. They are awesome, but Giovanni is better. I went through his computer to see his work. I cant describe how good it is.

 

He has done a sleeve, all the water is blue, an orange Koi and a yellow one, easily the best tatt I have seen.

I just had a look at Giovanni's myspace and the website of his tattoo palour.

 

I have to agree his work is amazing, and yes i agree with u alot of the miami ink tatts are shit, but there is no denying that Chris Garver does some amazing work and is by far the best out of the miami ink crew.

 

2009 ?? pfft who cares its not really a long time to wait, the tatts are there for life, im in no hurry.

I would only go all the way, full sleeves, i dont like randoms tatts, i prefer a nice large piece of art. So having said that, i would prefer to find someone with the artistic skills, i like perfection, i want ppl to look at it and say "shit, thats amazing i wouldnt change a thing"

Giovanni free hands straight on my arm, no stencil, no tracing, he ia an artist of the highest order. He has totally designed my tatt, I had no input, he says " I'm really digging this skull ", he is tattooing the back of my arm and I'm going "what skull". The skull underwater he has just done is brilliant, he just looked at my arm and thought, what now, I know, I'll do a skull UNDER the water.

 

He says he gets very very very few customers like me, most are control freaks, I let him express himself on my arm. Artists always work best that way. Tattoists dont.

I know EXACTLY what you mean, and thats exactly what i want, i have ideas about what i want but in the end they are the artists and they are they ones who have the brilliant artistic imaginations so you have to trust them to put those amazing skills to work, and quite obviously this guy is great.

 

I really like what he writes on his myspace: "I'm a tattooist and proud to be! I just love tattooing people for the artwork and for the relationship i can create out of it. I hate attitude"

 

Thats the kind of feel good experience you see ppl getting on miami ink and i think thats how it should be, your gettting a very personal kind of work done for christ sake.

 

You dont want your tattoo done by some ice head junkie whos just in it to make cash to feed their habbit. I've known a few ppl who have had bad experiences with unfriendly arrogant guys who have done a shit job.

You must have been there, that exactly how it went. He saw I had a Japanese style sleeve on the other arm, so he just continued the theme. At the time, he was booked out for close to a year, but because he was doing HIS tattoo, he found 4 spots for me, last one is next month

I've already stated its peeling at the moment, I will wait till it settles down, you know your going to see it in 2 days anyway. Spiros already asked to see it a few posts up.

In 2 years of this forum running there hasnt been a single warning handed out, but so many forum regulars have warnings. When I asked why, they said everytime they venture out they get into a fight with some knob.

 

Nice and safe in here lol.......visit more often.
