dressedbyadeadgalaxy asked: hey there! I want to tattoo in a strech marks but I have a question, if i tattoo there, the tattoo will be distort in a time? and in which body parts tattoos distort?


Answer:

There is always a chance your tattoo will distort over time if you choose to get it in a place that has stretch marks. If your skin has stretch marks in an area, that probably means that your skin has stretched significantly in that certain spot. Which means if you put a tattoo there it will probably stretch/distort over time.

here are some areas of your body where a tattoo might distort over time.

Your belly

Your breasts,

your butt, 

side/back of thighs, 

inner arms,

love handles, 

and your sides.

mutilatedmalice asked: Is Golden age more reputable and better quality work than other shops in the Austin area? I came across it and thought was great, but I wanna make sure I choose a shop that has artists no less than perfect for my first tattoo. Can you give me a recommendation?


Answer:

Great question. Let me start by saying Golden Age does produce quality work or I wouldn’t have recommended it. I’m not sure what your definition of perfect is, but in my mind there is no such artist. Tattooing is a handmade art. It’s an imperfect art.  All handmade things have imperfections. Not to mention the canvas (your body) is also technically imperfect. I don’t have a tattoo on my body that is perfect. I’ve learned to love them for that. If you are expecting laser printer quality tattoos then you may be disappointed in any tattoo you get. 

However, If you see beauty in these kinds of things, then only you can decide who is “no less than perfect” by looking at portfolios and different artists at different shops. 

Just because a shop is reputable doesn’t mean you will automatically like every artist in that shop. Do your own homework. I can’t tell you who to get tattooed by. Some shops that I like in Austin include Golden Age, Gullycat, Perfection, Rock of Ages, Amillion, Affinity, All saints, Great wave, and Bijoux. It all just depends on what strikes your fancy. Good luck!

allisonsophia asked: Hello there! I live in Austin and I was given your name after complimenting a girl on some work she had on her arm. I see you live in Asheville now, but I wondered if you had any suggestions of artists here in Austin if I'm looking for some very simple and clean black florals on my arm. If not it's totally cool I just really love your stuff and wondered I you knew of anyone! Thanks! Allison

Anonymous asked: I recommend that you read the manga Berserk and watch it's corresponding movies , it's equally heart-wrenching, demonic, and gruesome, and if you aren't into reading manga I highly suggest you do, a lot of times they're 10x more detailed than their anime counterparts. I also suggest Akira, I think you'd like it. There's also Elfen Lied and Evangelion. Uzumaki is a really good horror manga.


Answer:

Thanks for the recommendation. I have seen Akira a long time ago. It’s awesome. I just recently stared getting into Comics/Graphic novels so maybe I will make my way to Manga at some point
