Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
You guys are the biggest group of people I know who know things about the internet.
I've been thinking about getting a tattoo for a long time but I don't know how to find a good artist in my area or how to find a good message board for tattoo enthusiasts. I've been thinking about getting a tattoo for years (okay a lot of years when I was younger and then again now that I'm older). I was going to get a tattoo to commemorate turning 30 but that sort of didn't happen and now I'm rapidly approaching 32.
I was thinking about getting a simple tattoo and then, if I can handle it, well, I've been seriously thinking about finding a really good artist who could adapt this piece here as a tattoo. I have loved this picture ever since I saw it on the cover of a book more than fifteen years ago. Yeah, I know, it's crazy. I mean some people have way elaborate stuff, but...it's a crazy thing to consider for someone who has no ink at all and is afraid she won't be able to do it because it'll hurt too much. I mean I am not artistically inclined enough to see how it could be adapted and how small I could get it and yet still be able to clearly make out the elements I find important (I'd want it on my back shoulder blade area).
So any links to shops, whatever (esp. southern CA - apparently I remembered this notion just slightly too late because I guess there was a tattoo expo at the Fairplex in Pomona just this LAST weekend, ugh) or just a good website with infos would be appreciated. I would have done a search for past threads about tattoos but search seems to be borked for me, sorry.
