    Figured to just start another thread since the other one disappeared during the move. Not that I have a full knowledge of tattoos but people know I am a fan and enjoy the work of others. So post up any pics, questions or whatever else relating to tattooing.

    And to just add to this first post, Vice is starting their 2nd season on their awesome documentary Tattoo Age with Valeri Vargas, Mutsuo, and Thom Devita. If you haven't seen none of the episodes, I highly suggest you check it out here: http://www.vice.com/tattoo-age.



    Some work from Varlerie Vargas:

    im into religious, realistic, portraits, traditional, script and gangsta/hood type pieces. mostly black and grey work since color doesn't look good on me, but real recognize real. hopefully i can get some decent quality pics of what i got to put up soon. let see yalls work. in the mean time i'll share some pics ive saved over time. some might even be from previous volumes.

    Any other artists with a similar style like Jun Cha? I just found out about his work and it's amazing.
    I probably will never get a tattoo but if I do those are the type I would want

    I would say have your money right more so then your body. Depending on how big a piece you want, you have to at least have a couple of grand and in cash for some cases. I am facing that problem now. I already spent $900 on my tat and it looks like it could be another $1500 more. What sucks is thes guys take nothing but cash and I only have so much for each time they are available. I go in on the 31st for more work but can only afford 4 hours or so. At this rate, my tattoo won't get finished as fast as I thought. And only say have your money right more so then your body because you don't want to work out and have a budget tattoo on your body. You'll pretty much ruin everything you've worked for.

    BJ Betts spoke about this guy but Eric Marcinizyn is up on the same scale as Jun Cha. Just different content and sort of different style but he's pretty damn good at doing black and whites. I've posted pics of his work on the last thread but here you go:

    Seem like towards the end of the last thread there was a bit of roasting going on, which made people hesitant to post their ink.

    Hopefully we can avoid that this time around.
