aki, i dig your 'goggle baby' dude. nice job.
Thanks! The 'goggle baby' is a character taken from H.R. Giger's "Birth Machine"
The frame/background was drawn by Greg Kidd at Sal's Tattoo and Barber Shop: Sal's Tattoo & Barber Shop

Greg is an incredible, unassuming artist. He does amazing black/grey shading, and has a really good and unique feel for Bio-mech stuff. Don't judge him by his website. It hasn't been updated for years. He's more of a word-of-mouth kind of guy.

I hope that alcohol + tattoo = deep discount. These days you've got to be a hurting artist to tattoo drunk chicks.
actually...quite the opposite, I over paid and the artist was bizzare
lesson learned

oh that Jesus juice...

Does anyone remember the name/website of that really talented artist whose website was posted here years ago? I think his name was Damien Rothchild (sp?) but I can't seem to find anything under that name. He does the really good fineline work.

Yeah Daemon's the dude who did my arm band years ago, I'd totally get more work done by him if I was back in Ontario. He does such siiiick work!
His work is incredible, but looking through his portfolio I see that most of his work is really tribally, not sure that's what I want for this particular tattoo. Maybe i'll contact him and see what's up.

So I went last week to meet an artist that a bunch of my friends swear by, I'm looking to get a memorial tat for my pops and had what I considered to be a great idea for a tat. So I get there last week and show the dude the pic and he assures me that it'll turn out great. He suggests we book an appointment for the following week and I leave my deposit. I felt like it was a bit premature to book an appointment since I hadn't even seen his ideas yet, but my friend assures me the guy is amazing, so I agree.
Anyway, during the week I started getting second thoughts so I call the guy and cancel the appointment. He's fine with it, but suggests that I come in on my appointment slot (which he had filled) to pick up the sketch and my original picture. So I went in there last night to see him and he shows me the most terrible representation that I could ever have imagined, the sketch was just fucking horrible. Then, as we start conversing I realize he's stoned as fuck and the dude has an appointment coming in. Not to mention that the first time I met him I got the feeling that he was high on coke. (I know someone that sells it to him, but I figured he was responsible enough that he didn't do it while working).

Anyway, so so so so glad I got cold feet as that would have turned into a nightmare. I think i'll wait for Daemon.
