I was heartbroken beyond belief when I found out that their 30th anniversary US tour was canceled. I wanted to see Blixa Bargeld so forking bad!

I loves me some Elliott Smith, but this we know.


That's so awesome. I listen to Elliott Smith everyday and can totally understand the appreciation and love of his music.

Yeah. I used to really be into his stuff in college, but haven't paid much attention in the past few years. I always loved that deer drawing though and kept going back to it as an idea for a tattoo.

I think I'm going to get this http://thbrailway.ca/thbinphotos/img_steam.htm#04 TH&B (Toronto, Hamilton, Buffalo Railway) locomotive on the left side of my torso. Any suggestions on backgrounds? So far I figured it would only be the locomotive, but I think it will need some sort of context instead of just a cut and paste look?

Got this one last summer. My best friend designed it.

I have a couple of really beautiful sketches from another good friend that I'd love to get as tattoos. I just need to stop putting it off!

I got my first tattoo today! I've been thinking about it for about a year but kept putting it off and sometime this afternoon decided I was just going to go for it. Tada:
Image
I probably should have made someone else take a picture of it. But I'm excited.

Kate, nice work! I'm unfamiliar with Brian but I had my feet and my doggies done at Temple (feet were by Jesse Tuesday who no longer works there, dogs by Jason McAffee).

I've heard a lot of people talk about how great Temple is. The friend who did my designs tried to get an appointment with someone there and they were booked like 6 months in advance!
I think Brian only started working at Sacred recently? He used to work at Braindrops in SF, then he owned Warlock in the Mission. Sacred as a shop is pretty typical (they seem to do a lot of flash) but Brian is anything but. Fantastic artist, does awesome color, refuses to do flash.


I just realized what a huge idiot I am, and conflated Sacred=Temple. DERRR, two different shops Erika! Anyway, I stopped going to Temple even though I like it because their desk people are always total crassholes and wouldn't let me plan vegan inks in advance. I will check out Sacred!


My close friend Gaytha works at Sacred. She did the scissors I have on each arm. She's fantastic!

This was my first tattoo. There is a zombie hand coming up from the dirt on the back of each leg from the heel to the back of my knee. The ankle and back of the knee hurt the worst during these sessions. The tattoo artist is Chris Autry of Black Orchid Tattoo in Savannah, GA. I gave him the concept and colors I wanted and then he drew these up for me.
Image

I've been filling in a panoramic zombie apocalyptic scene around the hands for over 5 years. It's completed now but I've been lazy and need to stitch together photos of everything not pictured that ties everything togeter. Here are pictures from different sessions with the same artist as above.

ImageImageImageImage

This one came from concert poster art of an artist in NC. The tattoo was done by Danielle Distefano who at the time was working at 13 Roses in ATL but now co-owns Only You Tattoo. This tattoo was by far the most painful of any work I've had done.

Image

This tattoo is about 10" across and is located between my shoulder blades. It's William Schaff's version of St. George and the Dragon. I had Raphael's painting of this scene on the wall of my bedroom as a child and William Schaff is also amazing so this tattoo seemed like a natural choice. This image is also used on the Okkervil River Black Sheep Boy Appendix EP.
