    The best tattoo artist is Cartoon based out of Los Angeles. He does all the work for Cypress Hill. He's also done up Redman and Method Man. Thats fools skulls and shit are the shit. I wish I knew about him before I got my shit done. If I had the cash I would have had strictly Cartoon ink.

    i've seen lots, it seems like most of the old skool guys in the Bronx area open stores. Jent has a store in Yonkers, Zev has one i think, Ces is tatooing these days
    (oh shit, i shouldn't have let that one out, now we'll have kids from all over the world fiending) and plenty more.

    my current tattooist is an old friend of mine who wrote, and his designs are great. he's a great colorist and i'm giving up my mini-sleeve to him. he did a pilot and pencil on my arm last september and i still get complements on the colors.

    it's ok to get your name (i don't have it) tattooed, but i think it's easy to get a graffiti-style tattoo that just doesn't work. it's kinda like doing a piece that's TOO detailed on a train- the art is cool but the canvas is wrong. tats are super personal and i respect that, it's just my thought.

    oh yo wait a second. i just need to say something here. FUCK WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT TATTOOS- they're too personal to worry about the opinions of others.

    remember, if you go to the tattooist that everyone thinks is the best, you might still get work that you hate. in my experience, a tattooist is someone at work like anyone else- they do tons of tattoos and 99% don't matter to them and they don't care that much. i only like getting work by friends because it means something more to me. so what if i never get to give Johnathan Shaw or Bugs my money for ink- my tattoos were given to me by people who i'm boys with and we both enjoyed it. besides, i'll bet writers who do tattoos get pretty tired of doing pieces for people. anyhow, i'm done.

    my favorite graf/tattooist is giant. i feel like his style translates well onto the skin. i think graf tattoos look best with not too many colors. actually my fav. graf tattoos are usually black and grey.

    i have a friend whose going to tatoo me for the first time, and i'm pretty sure i'm going to get some graff wildstyle as opposed to traditional. not being much for that shit myself i was wondering first, if there are other pitfalls to avoid such as this one, and second is it kosher to use another artists design?
