I emailed him a while back and he hasn't responded either. I really want him to do my piece as well but when I'm just going to start looking for new artists.

Fuck me, this hurt today. DNA strands and all the background colours are all new. Still and forever I'm sure will be a work in progress.

My arm is bradley gobiel from atomic zombie in edmonton, and my chest is pat berube here at port side. I got lucky because I wanted work done here so badly, and pat and bradley are good friends from edmonton, with very similar styles, so picking an artist here was easy. May 31st I'm heading to whistler for a drawing appt. with justin ormiston. Fucking stoked!

some guy got a tatty of a tiger with no eyes filled in it from Trigger Happy. Is it Jay's style to not ink the eyes?

Is he Asian? Maybe he is superstitious, your not suppose to dot the eye on creatures you tattoo on your body as the animal will come alive and if your not strong enough to carry the essence of the animal horrible things may happen to you.

All bullshit if u ask me my dragon has it eyes dotted and I'm perfectly fine.

Never heard that one before. And I don't think I've ever seen a Japanese tattoo without eyes either

Its's an Old Chinese superstition, some mural and painting have no dot in the eyes too for this reason. I just saw a gangster in Tst the other day with a horrible dragon tatttoo with no eyes.

from what I am hearin is that you are suppose to get the eyes filled in when you kill someone... which is fckin retarded, ppl makin shiet up to make them seem gangster

from Jay's portfolio, he doesnt fill in all the eyes in his tattys. I dunno what this guy has been sayin to his customers.

the eyes could make or break a tattoo as well.. maybe he is avoiding it? I just check out his portfolio, he does have one koi with the eyes filled in

whoever said that shit about gettin eyes filled in when you kill someone is a fucking idiot. jay never said anything like that to me, he even asked me if i wanted the eyes filled in.

but i also have heard that story about dotting the eyes will give the animal a soul/life or whatever. it's all up to perception i guess. i also read somewhere that chinese says 5 koi's is eternal goodluck and japanese says 7 koi's is eternal goodluck...
