    Truly a Master. She is a damn fine artist regardless of the media. And her technical skills are top notch. I plan on having her do the other sleeve later this year.

    i don't have any from Chris yet, i have some small ones from Bob (from flash) and i got tattooed alot by a different guy (Jaie) that used to work there.
    i have been in there a few times and had an opportunity to sit for Chris but i'm always low on the tattoo funds when that happens.

    Do you guys think Dario Pegoretti would design tattoos you would go for, or is bike art too far removed from what looks good on skin?

    Re: Dario

    There's quite a bit of abstract tat stuff out there (at least that's what I think of when you say Dario).

    It all depends on what you're looking for...

    with tattoo's you are usually best off finding an artist that does stuff you like and then letting them do their thing
    if you look through their portfolio and don't connect with anything then it's best to keep looking

    it's common to bring in reference material
    it's also common to let the artist adjust stuff so that it works out to be a nice tattoo
    though, some artists don't care and will do anything just to get work...while other artists will politely (or maybe not so politely) tell you that another artist would be better to do that work for you...

    The yakuza tend to get a prominent mention in these types of articles. It's understandable because it's one of those things that help sell the story, even in Japan.

    What people tend to either ignore or forget is the fact that tattoos were popular amongst the artisan / craftsman class. It wasn't rare to see work done on the entire back, for instance.

    I'm a lousy student of history, but I suspect that the criminal image association developed relatively late. 3 generations ago (two before the western Baby Boomers), I don't think there was much concern amongst the artisan class that getting inked would be a cause for being shunned socially. I think 2 generations ago, attitudes towards tattoos had changed, and one artisan going to another artisan, possibly doing barter transactions, became a thing of the past.

    Apropos this forum, aside from the shrinking domestic market for the craft, the article mentions apprenticeships of 10 years as being fairly normal. Demand might be shrinking, but the supply is also definitely shrinking. Most kids these days don't have the patience to go through a "career trajectory" (what a cringeworthy term) like that.
