    Fuck yeah, that's one of my favorite tattoos ever done on that show. Darren is the man. I just got a house down in Miami and it just so happens I want an octopus done. I'd love to see if Darren could do it(even if he doesn't do it at the Miami Ink shop, I don't think those guys work there day to day).

    That's been known for awhile... it was mentioned on one of the shows.

    Darren owns a shop called Brass City, Chris Garver works at another shop in Chicago or New York (can't remember) and Ami worked somewhere else for years before the show.

    You sure Darren owns Brass City? The website says it's owned by some guy from Hatebreed. Darren's last name is Brass though...

    what do you mean finish that? I got it done in 1999/2000 its done, I may connect it to my back piece whenever I decide to start that though.

    this is the inside of the same arm:

    oh lol, I might, but if I had really planned on a full sleeve I would have had the octopus go all the way to my wrist.
