+1.

And it doesnt need to be humongous cuz it seems like ppl think the bigger means it's more meaningful to them for some reason [obvious reason would be the hours they endured but that doesnt mean shit, i mean who gives a fuck if you endured 14 hrs of needle pain when the tattoo is some bullshit skulls or a monster.].

So I disagree, it doesnt have to be a size of Texas to retain its meaning.

I want like nautical stars on my shoulder blades maybe a "caddilac" tattoo near my rib cage. I dont care about the meaning. I just want it to look cool.

Yeah Elio is a legend in NY, I was leaning toward him solely on the basis of experience, he has been in the game for 20+ years. Gene's work is cool but he's been tattooing for 4 years.

I dont see anything that impressive in Genes coffey portfolio besides he has pretty good color use.. I would go to Elio Espana if i were picking out of those 2 but also would look into Mike Rubendll and the kings Ave crew!

I don't know but I don't like either of their work.

my personal opinion, i'd take the $2 r/t boltbus from chinatown nyc to chinatown dc, go to jinx and get something done by tony.

good shit man Imma b out there this summer and was thinking bout getting a portrait done by him do you know how long his waitlist is?



last i heard was that he's booked til August. But give him a call, he's real cool and will work something out with you. Portraits are his thing.. He gets down with a pretty big portrait in like 2-3 hours. I'm going to get at least 2 from him soon.

edit: catch him as soon as you can because he will be moving his shop closer to the strip, meaning his prices will go up. He's suppose to be settled in the new spot this summer.

But he could also just save the trip to DC and go to Kings Ave Tattoo and go to Rubendall or someone in there crew.. But either Mike Rubendall or Tony Morell would be better than the 2 listed by far.. Just have to be on a wait list! Which in a couple weeks i might stop over to see Rubendall when im in NYC, might put a deposit to get my right arm sleeved and be placed on his list.. Every artist i want to do this sleeve for me is on a long list so i might just add myself to it, im going to have to wait anyway, we'll see...

Portraits have to be one by a person who specializes in that form of tattooing.. Do some really good research if this is something you want to get before you get it done.. Portrait tattoos can be really amazing looking if they are done right by the right person!

I'm thinkin of gettin a tat on the inside of my bicep from Psalm 35:10
"There is no one like you.
You protect the weak from the strong,
the poor from the oppressor."
I was thinkin of gettin it in 3 lines like I have it above...what yall think? Good idea? Or a better location? I want it to be somewhat visible but easily hidden for work n watnot in the future...

location question.. with my experience of people coming into a shop asking for writing, usually artist want to put on a more flat surface cause anywhere else they have to go with the flow of you body.. inside of your bicep could be tricky but im not the artist so if he can do it to where it looks good go for it but most spots i see written script like that is outside bicep, inside forarm and back...\

Also if u like the idea of what it is, it shouldnt matter to anyone else, the whole purpse of a tattoo is for u and u alone!
