Though I don’t know her personally, I had to post a note about this.  @aminamunster’s chest piece, by #timkern, has been copied and poorly replicated time and time again. A client of mine, today, came in with a Marc Ecko t-shirt boasting the latest rip-off. PS - she’s on the left, the t-shirt’s on the right. (Taken with instagram)

I don’t know what colour the boathouse is at Hereford, but this Hereford is mostly brown. Fun little tattoo on @jengillencums today. Honored to put it next to a @myleskarr piece. #bull #hereford #tattoo #food #foodtattoos #beef #raw #rare #steak #archive #archivetattoo (Taken with instagram)

Anonymous said: I want to get a back tattoo that goes down to my hips. The only thing is, I have stretch marks on my hips. They are white but a bit raised. Is it ok to tattoo over them?
