    Haha, Cosmic is a shop . I meant i'd be going to Cosmic to get it done, not i'd be getting a Cosmic piece lol. Although looking through their fb, i'd probs go to Alan for my rib one. Seems really weird to consider going to a different tattooist. I may well mull that one over more, I want to space out getting my ribs done, it's like my favourite area so far to get tattooed .
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    I know, it's gorgeous! Is it okay to bring a tattoo to an artist and say "I would like something like this but a little different?" I would absolutely LOVE something like that for my next tattoo, maybe with some teal/purple instead of the orange/red.

    Can't see why it would be a problem for you to bring in a reference photo and then have the artist customize it for you. Only thing I think a lot of them don't like is if you bring in a non-flash pic of something another tattooist designed custom for a client and say "I want THIS tattoo EXACTLY."
    Have: 2g lobes (11/11/12); L 16g conch (07/27/12); 14g VCH (09/01/12) | Next: stretch ALL the things! (lobes: 1g; VCH: 12g)
    Also Want: 8g septum, outer labia, nipples; too many tattoo ideas for my own good; goal size for lobes = 1/2" - 5/8"
    Is it weird that I love piercing crusties...?

    Yeah, I think I read on the website of the studio I go to that they will never copy another artist's work. I'd like pretty much the same tattoo with different colored feathers and maybe different designs inside the bird. I'd probably just trust the artist with coming up with a design since I'm not that creative.

    ^ I did!!!! With the holidays and all that rush I totally forgot to post about it. It wasn't all that bad, 1 hour of cutting felt like ~4+ hours of tattooing (you know when you start to get cold and restless?). But its healing away anyhow. I think I still prefer tattoos (aesthetically and less hassle) but I might change my mind as it heals further.
    Piercings: 9/16" & 6g lobes | 8g septum | some others
    Other: 1 cutting | some tattoos
