Here you go guys. Discuss away. But we have a few ground rules that are as follows:
All forum rules apply to this thread.
Pictures of mods go in the picture sticky. Some exceptions will be made (i.e. "This is what I'm working with for my new tattoo, give me some feed back", "Look at this omfg horrible mod I found on the internet", "[+Tumorcorns]")
No drama. Everyone has different views on what looks good as far as mods go. No personal attacks about ink or piercings. (This rule can be bent in cases of "Hai gaiz I'm 16 and just tattooed a HUUUUUUGE spider over my fayce!!!!eleven!")
This thread DOES NOT have to be solely about mods. Get to know each other. I've posted in this forum for over 3 years.... Hell I'm a mod ffs.... And I don't know half your names.
In order to not intimidate any newcomers, at 50 pages we will do a clean up, leaving only the last 5 pages.
I went to a job the other week which was through the same company I have done most of my work through. But I didn't even get a chance to weld after going through all the safety stuff to be on the job. The big boss said that because of my previous welds that I did 6-8 months ago weren't up to par and he didn't want to waste any money on the material in case I fucked it up.
Even though it was on material I work better with and a process that I kick ass with, they didn't want to give me a chance.
There was a huge ordeal with my union because of how I was treated. They wanted to push for something, but I really didn't want to because then I would feel as if I ruined my rep with these guys. Fast forward to now the crew I would have been on one guy got into a argument with the wrong person at work. After this the job decided to remove the entire company from the dam (Dams are huge money in the trades industry here), so now the big boss is getting all lawyer'd up to fight for this job back.
My dad was extremely pleased to hear this because this company has gone downhill in the past few years. They are not as reliable as they once were and the politics of things there have changed as well.
Right now if I wanted to practice I would have to go to Vancouver and if I go there I'm staying there to work. So I don't know how to balance anything right now.
I've got two friends who want to go, and family in the area, so it's not so scary
One of my friends lived there for a while before, and she wants to go back to the same place. Grande Prairie, and she has family there too.
My teacher told me he can get me in contact with people who will me jobs, which is nice. So lets see if that's how it goes I guess. One of the night things about having a gigantic family is that I have a safety net all over Canada
Mel I don't think I would be able to complain with that form of payment!
Tore you are going to be covered in tattoos before you know it :P Still though that's awesome you have some good sounding plans.
Shadowsangel - Do you have anything specific in the makes or you just letting the tattoo artist go wild?
This morning I woke up to my cat that squeaks/little honks for meows, I couldn't even be mad that it was probably 3-4am. I have been trying to get a video of her meows so show people, but she never talks when the camera comes out
She used to never ever meow, but I think she's taking after the half pure bengal that wont shut the fuck up half the time. She also has a good purr box to make up for her quietness so there's a good balance going on now.
Not gonna lie when she starts rumbling I often rub my face in her long haired belly to hear it better. She doesn't really like to be touched but she won't do a single thing to harm you, unless you count her holding your finger in her mouth. Not real bites but just letting you know she can fit them in there.
That's exciting!!! Looking forward to seeing it!
Also I think they neighbor cat has been nomming on my cat nip plant I have outside. Bastard better leave some for my kitties
For those of you who care, I have made so much progress on my outfit for this summers music festival (It's only like a month and a but away ). I have the skirt done, armwarmers (which are like sleeves almost) and my leg warmers done (which are rainbow!!). Now I am working on my hat which is black and yellow, and its almost done as well. I'm going to probably post a few pictures in the near future when it's all done. I'm also going to pimp out a sun hat so it looks colorful and exciting ^__^
That's so exciting Dusty your finally getting your ink!
I need to upload some pictures of my latest creations! I finished my hat along with one for Dave. Those pictures are on FB and I have been disgustingly lazy to upload them here
My friends are also going to pay me to make them some so we can spot each other amongst the crowd. If there's any time or bandanas left around I'm going to make some bracelets. I have a good feeling there will be some hippie trading going on, so I want in on that.
I put some of them up on my profile.
Since then I have made more cuffs with a nice variety in color, there will be more once I finish making my friends hats.
But I want some feedback on the cuffs. I was searching etsy and didn't find anything quite like them. So I'm almost considering selling them on there
If you were to buy them how much would you be willing to pay for one? Should I sell them as pairs or just single?
They take roughly half an hour to make, one bandanna is $2.00 but I use minimum 2 colors and can get at 3 maybe 4 if I used 3 colors.
I have a lot of pondering to do about it before I make any decisions in favor of selling them online.
Also you only have 4 days Dusty , I'm so pumped for you!
So awesome Dusty!
Now that you have been initiated you will never stop getting tattoos :P
There's a good chance that we will be moving in August or so. I'm nervous but look forward to it because Vancouver will have a better opportunity for work for both of us. Around here there's nothing and after my last incident with the company I normally work for I doubt I'll be working for them until I get a million times better.
