New Ask Guy stuff posted: Tattooing older skin, sun-damaged skin and thin skin

Thursday, March 11, 2010

This month I am an editing fool... pretty much doing nothing except for working on the Innerstate documentary, which is just about done. It looks like a Hell City release date is totally doable... but if you can't be at that show this year to check it out, I'll let you all know when the documentary is available. It will come with a glossy 96 page book as well.

I just added some new Q&A material to the Ask Guy page, including some stuff about working on older sun-damaged skin, plus dealing with the thin skin on the inside wrist and bicep, which can be prone to blowouts. As always, I invite you to send me your favorite, most frustrating questions about tattooing... and I'll do my best to provide clear answers.

I did actually get a little tattooing done this month, including this Egyptian backpiece tattoo I'm working on for D.C. tattooist Matthew Wojociewski. A little inking makes all the hours at the computer more tolerable. Plus, Matthew does great tattoos, and I always enjoy catching up with him and checking out his latest work. My next appointment will be in a week... I'll be working on Hell City's Durb Morrison, and we'll be brainstorming about what to do this year in the Hell City Special Events Room. Lots of fun stuff happening!
