    I have Harley tat also. When my dad passed away, on what would have been his next birthday, my sisters and I got the shield, wings, & a ribbon (the ribbon is the color of his Harley) Unfortunately the tat guy sucked!! It looks terrible now. I’ve asked about getting it recolored but getting different advice. So for now, until I figure out what to do, I just live with it.

    Yeah, the artist is EVERYTHING. For this one I searched out a guy with super crisp line work. I am not into shading, I like my tattoos to look more like ink stamps or logos.

    I have my dad's name on my collarbone. I also had it done on his birthday. It took me several years to find the right guy to do it and I scheduled the tattoo months in advance.

    I live with a tattoo for the rest of my life. Cost and the ability to do it NOW, are really low on my priority list. Talent and execution is everything.

    I also never try to push a tattoo guy* out or his comfort zone. Going to a guy that does awesome graffiti style work and asking him to do a portrait is asking for trouble. Decide what you want, then find the right person to do it. Ask them what they think, if they are not "into it" move along.

    * I have a tattoo done buy a woman as well, on my butt, :)

    I also have my 3 kids signatures on my outter fore arm. A small rose on inner wrist (moms name is Rosemary and of course that’s her favorite flower) and another saying just under my collar bone/chest area. Had 2 shoulder surgeries. Surgeon did her best to save it but the word “just” got a lil scrunched from stitches.

    TW group buy. I'm currently saving up to have it redone with ICONs and 33's. Just a couple more visits to the plasma center and I should have enough.

    It really varies, my career department has a policy on tattoos, I've never read it, and once summer rolled around my boss never made any mention of it. The next township over to the right, they don't permit anything showing and have to have it covered, but the township south of us, they hired a guy right before I got hired at my job, and he's fully covered went from full-time tattoo artist to full-time fire inspector.

    I've considered getting my hands done, but that was when I still worked for the Fire Academy that had no tattoo policy at all, which is how I finally decided to go full sleeves. Now I am just sticking to finishing my sleeves and then going to work on my back and legs. Which reminds me I've not posted an updated picture of my one arm.

    Crappy pictures but meh. I’ll get good ones once we finish, I think the next session should do it to finish the upper portion of the back ground.

    Interesting. Thanks for the insight. I wonder if fire departments will eventually find tattoos more socially acceptable and allow more visible ink over time as times seem to be leaning towards

    I think it’s slowly becoming more acceptable honestly. As long as they are “clean”. If that makes sense...

    Its gonna be a sensitive spot forsure. Wasnt to bad this time though, since we only did line work in that area. Once we start packing in the black it aint gonna be fun.

    Sounds like fun.... not.


    Doing my knee cap next month.. not entirely sure if I am looking forward to it or not. Just had two back to back sessions on my elbow, Artist is “giving me a break” because she wants to do the knee at the convention.

    Speaking of.. this was the last session, going to do another negative design on the elbow To match my wrist, I think that session will tie everything together.
