************************ hella sikk tattz thread?

Recommended Posts

If anyone lives in NYC and has experience with modern american (which I know some people in here must) and would like to give me some advice as where to go hit me with a PM. I'll be living here for a few months. I've of course traveled to a few shops but i'm looking for that local knowledge. Again in a PM not to take up board space.

 

Or anyone not in the city who has buddies who are still here.

what is modern american?

 

I may not have chosen the right term, but what I am trying to define is loosely defined. To illustrate what I am saying, here are two examples. Notice in both photos there is a flower at the bottom. The first flower is very traditional american. two colors, red green, standard outline. In the next photo has a stylized twist, lots of color, bolder outline, but still maintains the shape and form of the original american classic flower.

Now one may say " oh thats just the difference between a good and bad tattoo. But this is only to people like us who are constantly observing tattoo form/ style/ etc. So ultimately how would one define the style in the second photo, which is what I meant by "american modern?"

I feel gayer for reading ComplexMedia's art manifesto

 

You are an annoying useless toolbar

 

Why dont you just get a cobra with a dagger going though it?

 

Gunna be getting some work done soon, not sure what. But probably nothing modernly gay.

 

All work done by Eric Saner of Hand of Doom/White Tiger. Great guy. He said "as Stell said, Biomech is fucking gay" First thing I heard out of his mouth.
