    7pm tonight, Paradise at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, FL

    So I have big plans, but nothing with a meaningful story behind it. I have 3 that I'm interested in getting

    1.

    I just like this artwork. And I was thinking of having the hand extended to some plug holes in my spine like in the Matrix (i'm a fan).

    2.

    Kokopelli, the native american fertility/sex god. I'm leaving Miami at the end of the month, this would be to remind me of the all the partying.

    3

    I spent a month in new zealand immersed in maori culture. Probably something more authentic/nonborneo looking

    Which would be my best bet to get on the show? And is a month too soon? I'm definitely not going to fly back here to get it. If it's too long of a wait I'll just drive up to big kahuna.

    they are going to charge you an arm and a leg. but go for it. I got picked for the showa nd then declined due to the fact that they wanted 800$+ for a 4in x 4in black and grey tattoo

    oh and your best bet to get on the show is a good sob story or making it seem meaningful. when i went for my interview, the casting director was like "we like getting people's stories, it's what makes the show interesting to the audience"

    you can request one, but they tell you "so and so wants to do your piece" when they give you the call back. I had requested Garver or Kat, they said maybe i'd get garver but Ami wanted to do my tattoo and i said hell no.

    who is a fan of ami :ugh:



    I saw that little guy in DIA, him and nunez...they were both about 5'7 and I should've just beaten them up to get on tv. Terrible artists, good businessmen/tv characters.

    oh, I thought you meant a real back piece..full sized...12 inches diameter? Depends on the detail, the artist...etc.


    Cost should be the last thing you ever think of.

    Interesting. I was watching the show last night and was thinking... if I got it done at Miami Ink, who would do my tattoo? And secondly, how good are these guys? How well would they be rated by others (aside from those who love them on the tv program).

    heh.
