    It's going to say King Size, which was the name of my grandfather's plane that he flew in World War II. He passed away on May 27th.

    I am probably only going to get the name on my ankle so it should be decently fast and easy.

    I am probably going to Jade Dragon in Chicago, since that seems to be the most reputable place in the area, but if anyone would like to recommend somebody else in the area, i'm more than willing to listen.

    Jade Dragon is OVERLY priced and the artists arent that impressive. Check out Topnotch Tattoo in Elgin, 216 E chicago street in Elgin

    its not like it is an incredibly hard tattoo to do so i rather go to a place that has good artists, and is very clean, and has great reviews

    I was thinking about going to Ben Wahhh. I heard he's one of the best in the area. Have you had any personal experiences with him and would he do something simple like this? I went to their website, there was nothing about sterilization or being clean which is one of my main concerns...

    I know of many many people who have been tattooed by Ben. He also tattoos 2 OTers. Not all shops list sterilization procedures on their site and even if they do it doesn't mean they're clean. :nono:

    Which is why I am trying to shun you away from going to Jade Dragon :rofl:. Deluxe is another shop that I would recommend if you want to stay in Chicago.

    You will easily be paying 3x as much from Jade. And I dont think Jade has good artists...maybe its changed lately since I have been out of the scene for a few years so..yea..

    Wow. Never saw his portfillo nor the website. If my original artist left from Topnotch, I may have to give this guy a call.

    You ever heard of Tony Uno? http://www.tonyuno.com/

    you can search my posts on here of my work by Ben, I go to him. You won't get in this Saturday though, Deluxe is not a tattoo assembley line shop like Jade is :hsugh:

    I mean you can go in there and if they aren't busy somebody there will probably be able to fit you in but a larger piece you're going to wait ~2 months for Ben, Tim, Harlan or Miles and Hannah from LA Ink works from Deluxe occasionally, she'd be your best bet for a pinup.

    I've had friends with some serious horror stories from Jade dragon for both tattoo's and piercings. I would not recommend them.

    :eek3::eek3::eek3:


    I looked on hannah's website. It said she isn't taking any new clients at this time, and is full with projects. I'm thinking about calling Ben Wahhh tomorrow to see if I can get an appointment with him.

    Whoever said that jade was 3 times more money, Hannah is 200 dollars an hour with a 3 hour minimum :eek4:

    Serious infections with piercings from not being clean, horrible tattoos, horrible line work, horrible shading etc. I've seen some of jade's work on friends, most have gotten cover ups on anything they got from there, and piercings have been taken out. :o:o

    If you can't get in there, call up Revolution and see if oMs has anything open.
