has anyone on here had any work done by James Acrow? Just wondering how long a wait list he has. I sent him an email a couple weeks ago outlining the theme of the tattoo I want but no response yet.

I pretty much have my mind set on him doing my sleeve, the realism of his work is too amazing to pass on

Klown did everything on my lower leg. He is part of the lowrider tattoo crew.

I got it because I always wanted a Medusa and this statue by Berlini is the only one that shows the tragic side of her and is base on the story of how Medusa came to be. No epic story other than I like it.

in retrospect i should of have plan my shit better, now i have some weird empty space on that leg that i need to fill out and its not big enough for another big piece=\

Personally I love white space between tattoos, and I'm glad I decided against doing full sleeves. A good artist can make different pieces work together, and the negative space itself can look good.

I have posted a Revscene Tattoo FAQ, but all the artist recommendations are based on nothing but my personal observations from far, far away. If you have any good recommendations, please let me know and I'll check out their portfolios and add them!

So who is on your wish list? Mine is pretty clearly defined:

Thomas Hooper (never gonna happen I think)
Cris Cleen (could happen, he works in Oregon sometimes)
Genko (could happen, but most of my japan time goes to gotch and gakkin)
Daveeeeeee blows (could happen - I just have to book an appointment! We'll see if I have the $ next week)
Murray Sell (doubt it will happen, he's all the way on the east coast)
Ron Wells (same as above)

These are the most realistic guys on my list.. I think I might have to save up and do an east coast tattoo trip one day in the far future

Oh yeah Bob Tyrrell too! Would love to get a portrait of Ohgr... I am saving my back for a gotch/gakkin collaboration... but that will be a loooooong time coming I think

You should head to Japan some time, it's actually not THAT expensive to go from HK.. there is a new budget airline that is opening a route soon too Peach

after going to Mexico and seeing a bunch of work i'm kind of leaning towards getting some work done.. starting off with a sleeve from my shoulder to elbow i'm thinking

i was thinking like a good VS evil type thing one each arm, an arch angel/knight on one and a demon/devil on the other

somthing like:





most likely with a shrouded veil like that as to not put a face on it etc., id also like to go more "gothic" and maybe even a bit mechanical in the style

dont really know where to start though, after watching a few of those documentries I really like "grime"s style but i dont know if id want any color or not

it's all just talk and thoughts anyways but meh

I think that theme would look best if it was a black and grey piece inspired by woodcut or old art. Think along the lines of Durer. Here's a piece by Thomas Hooper inspired by a Durer apocalypse woodcut. Hooper kills it of course, but I think the source material is very cool.

Something traditional would look better than the video game character look you have posted. 3zero is right, it will look kind of like a "I don't normally get tattoos" tattoo that a lot of people get. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
