i have been playing a bit with resin and am blown away by yours!  How did you get yours so bubble free?  I am really struggling with itty bitty bubbles all through mine, making it somewhat blurry.

My tastes at 18/19 were incredibly immature compared to, 25 or 30.  I am still happy with my one small tribal tat around my ankle that I got at 18...but I was lucky.  It is SMALL.  The tat I got on my back at 19.  *sigh*  It isn't the worst tat in the world, but I was so desperate to get a tat, and I was SO SURE that that tat would rock...well, I have ruined a whole big canvas over a stupid large black celtic design that I didn't even know the meaning of (it is the celtic letter V.  Uh...V???  OOPS).  I really wish I would have waited until I had a bit more life experience, and a little more maturity before I started putting anything permanent on my body.  I know that this isn't the case with everybody, but it seems to be pretty common (go to BME into the IAM section [you have to pay or submit photos for entrance] and you will see tonnes of coverups from tattoos from when people were young). 

Really, in the whole scheme of ink on your skin, is a couple of years that big a deal? 
There are definitely some people out there that adore their tats that they got at 16, 17, 18, 19...but you are going to find MORE people who are thrilled with the tats they got a little later in life.  And further, I couldn't agree more with the quality of work coming out of studios that have strong morals about not tatting anyone under a certain age.   I am living proof, sitting here with 2 tattoos done in shabby studios (one in an addition on the guys trailer) that if I would have had patience, maybe even these tattoos would be spectacular Smiley

Harumph.  I never received my ball.  I suspect at this point that I won't.  How obnoxious.  Oh well.  I am not in a knitting frenzy right now anyhow. 
15  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How to deal with nudity in your work at a craft fair? on: December 04, 2005 03:19:46 PM
Just an update.  The nudity ended up being a non-issue for the most part.  One woman (in her 70's perhaps) dragged her husband out of my booth, a couple more gawked as they walked by, but for the most part, the magnets were all VERY well recieved.  My biggest client for these was the 40-60yo woman.  Who woulda thunk it?! 

I had them in full view on a board, but it was high enough that parents didn't have an issue with them.  They weren't easily visible to a shorter child Smiley

me too Smiley  I am still having some insecurities, but I knew that that would happen.  It isn't that *I* don't love it, but the OMG what are the rest of the soccer moms going to think, and the fat arm thing.  But the fat arm thing was there without the tattoo as well, and now I have a fat arm with a BEAUTIFUL tattoo on it Smiley 

I can't wait to finish this baby.  I easily could have done the whole thing in one sitting, but my artist seems to prefer doing only 3hrs at a time.  Fair enough.  I wouldn't want to hunch over like that for 7.5hrs either.

yesterday was my first sitting for my half sleeve.  It is funny how I don't flinch through being tattooed at all, but that first night and the next day I feel liike a big ol' whiney baby. 

These pics were taken last night about 5hrs after the appt, so they are pretty shiney.  My appt was 3hrs long and I am looking at about 4.5hrs more work on this baby, including the background (we have been talking about that...still not 100% sure what we are going with...I have left the background mostly up to him, as he is better at figuring that out).  I am REALLY happy with how he is turning out so far...even though there is an itty bitty spot that still needs some blue  Cheesy Cheesy


ignore the fact that my husband cut off his head...he just kept muttering "i didn't expect it to be so BIG" ah hon...what don't you understand about half sleeve?  Grin Cheesy Roll Eyes
