Thanks, happy with the progress, wanted something neo Japanese and Yokai influenced. Pretty much done the top half now, will post a pic when it’s all healed in a couple of weeks

Russ you should do some full body shots. Have you got much left to fill?

Laughing out loud trust me no one wants full body shots

Still plenty to go at, biggest spot left is my belly Oops no more big projects though just one or two hits.

Your sleeve looking good I like his stuff very different to the norm, I especially like the gold outline stuff

Does anyone know of any artists that are good with Japanese style stuff in and around Newcastle?

Other than hearsay or getting on with the local dilettant, how does anybody find a proper tattooist? What's a good blog or something rather that separates the wheat from the chaff?

ask on instagram or find someone you like and check who they follow etc.

I want to ask if anyone has a plug for good numbing cream? Heard they're mostly illegal,
my friend says there's one you add before that lasts an hour and one you add once the skins broken the lasts roughly the same time. Need to finish off my ribs and neck and not looking forward to the agony..

my mate told me to get a numbing cream for my back. couldn't find one online and tried from chemists but they cancel the order when you tell them what its for.

ended up having to do two 8 hour stints on my back and across traps etc. the back was pretty reasonable apart from around the spine but my traps were so sensitive.

can't imagine what the ribs and neck would be like.

i always thought artists were never keen on people using numbing cream, but that was years back. i've never used it, does it really work that good?

I used it once on my ribs, called ametop you can get it from any chemist but they may have to order it in,it's good for about 3 hours but after that it's unbearable, if your doing a longer stint your better off toughing it out, as you get used to it. a lot of tattooers use lidocaine spray on long sessions and tough spots anyway, the genraly don't tell you though so when you get that second wind half way through that's why Laughing out loud

My guy used vasocaine which is one you apply once the skins been broken. Think you can pick it up on ebay..
I've had some painful bits done before but took my chest in one sitting using the stuff, honestly didn't feel a thing.

really appreciate the replies lads, so Dr. Numb and then wrap the skin one hour before and Vasocaine once the skin's broken? I've booked a whole day with my favourite tattoo artist (about 9 hours) so I need to be prepared, probably gonna get neck and ribs same day, all single needle for 9 hours… pray for me. Toiler how long did the chest take and did they keep re-applying? I did 3 hours on my ribs before and the guy sprayed some cream which definitely worked, but it wore off after about 45 mins and the pain became unbearable.. you reckon the rumours of numbing cream making it harder to tattoo are all bullshit?

Have just seen this and can’t make it down. Hooper is on my list too and nigh on impossible to get otherwise.
