Hi Sam

After all the good reports I might drop into the shop,, as want to get a few words inked across my back (In a style of Bruges script) pretty run of the mill lol

However my main interest would be a Medium sized piece for front left pec,,

I am having trouble finding anything in regards to Discus,,,, I will keep looking unless you know anyone with the time and inclination to sketch ideas, or how to go about finding something so specific ?

There are a few Pictures on Google images,,, but dont want to just copy someone else.


Regards Dan

Hey Dan!

I would love to do a discus chest plate for you!! Would be great. So many bright colours! Pop some nice twisted driftwood and plants through it! I have got some great ideas already.

Drop into the studio sometime for a chat after the 2nd Jan. Ill book you in and get something drawn to scale.

Here is a healed picture on a parrot I finished on a regular customer the other day. Similar to the style of tattoo we could do the discus.



Cheers,

Sam

I don't like tattooing necks. Don't enjoy it one bit.

Some artists will tattoo what ever where ever. I still have some sort of morals/guidelines I run by. So if your not heavily tattooed you won't get a highly visible spot like neck/hands/face tattooed by me!


I wish all artists took this stance. It's good that some still do. Sky didn't even bother with people that came in to Primitive for hand/neck tattoos that weren't already covered. Unfortunately, they then just go down the road to the next shop that tells them they can have as many face tattoos as they want, so long as they are handing over money.
I'm sick of seeing #$^&heads getting around with their throat and knuckles tattooed and nothing else. It's ridiculous. If you wana get your kids' names for your first tattoo, that's perfectly fine (great even), just put them somewhere that isn't gona make you look like a tosser.

I'm sorry I have to disagree with you there. I feel anyone should judge someone on there tattoo's. sure an artist can critique the work but I feel tattoo's are an expression of ones self weather they have a meaning or simply a design they liked. A person using there body as a canvas. Sure I have seen many tattoo's I don't personally like but calling someone a fairyhead or a tosser for choosing to have there artwork somewhere you dont like is pretty close minded IMO.

Agree with Bowdy with this one just because you don't like them doesnot mean people shouldn't be aloud them. My mates first tattoo was his throat second was his knuckles now he is covered head to toe and has a collection from various artist with there own unique touch

Me personally am against forever exposed (hands, face & neck) tattoos as a first kind of thing, as far as im concerend they do it for a tough look over anything. And it looks pretty random too i might add. Alot of my mates have hands, knuckles, necks and a couple face tattoos, but they did them after full sleeves, and chest pieces and other big things etc
I have 2 full sleeves, full leg and many others, so im far from against tattoos. I think its just some ppl go for the tough look of exposed pieces.
No offence to ppl just my opinion.

I agree with most of what you're saying Bowdy and I don't mind people having their necks or hands or heads tattooed, so long as they follow "tattoo etiquette" and get the rest of their body done first, like Sam and I have (sorry to drag you under the bus Johnsy haha)
I guess I may just be a little bit old fashioned in this regard, but there are actually a lot of artists around who share the same "morals/guidelines" as Sam.
I won't be getting my neck/hands/face tattooed any time soon because I work in an office and deal with clients all day, but if i had a job where it didn't matter, I probably still wouldnt be getting those areas tattooed any time soon because I haven't filled the rest up yet.
I think this is actually quite a frequently debated topic in today's society where such a high percentage of people are getting tattooed and they are so easily accessible.

Agree 100%.
I'd love for my line of work to not frown upon having tattoos. But the reality is, that it does.
Society is slowly coming to realize that just because someone has tattoos, doesn't mean they are going to rob you. Slowly sad.gif

Yeah my boss said we are allowed to have tattoos on our hands if we want but i'd prefer not to for now, especially being young & trying to establish myself & get my name out there in the market..

A lot of elder people would judge, purely because I have tattoos & turn me away.

So by my own choice i've decided not to.

Yeah good point man, I could always wear a tie every day if i wanted to get my neck done. Won't be for a while though. Costs wayyy too much and there's so much more of my body that needs doing first haha. Plus i like being able to not have to wear a tie on the days that I don't have to go to a dozen meetings tongue.gif

Matty im in an office too (as a draftman).
In the building both my sleeves are out no probs, but as soon as I walk out that office to meet clients or go for site inspections I have to cover up.
You never know where your future can take you and you never know what can jedadise you in the futrure neither. Im taking that from mates older brothers and my dads mates, who have some serious tattoos etc who have been discriminated cause there tattoos in the job role.

I get what your saying I do but again I disagree. Firstly you talk about society and there stance in the professional world with tattoo acceptance then you say there are guidelines in which you should follow in terms of where you can get tattoo's. both points are the same there both a judgemental view on tattoo acceptance. You ridicule one minority yet you ultimately have the same stance.
Society on a whole should take people on who they are not by there ink or where they carry it.

Yeah mate, i have to agree with you.
Society should accept everyone as they are. Whether they have highly visible tattoos or not.
The etiquette part about getting highly visible tattoos is just my personal opinion and a lot of people probably disagree, but i think that almost an equal amount of people would also agree, as with most of the world's arguments.
Unfortunately for us all, it will be a long time before they are fully accepted as freely as women with pierced ears etc.
