    I'm sitting at Nick Baxter and Jeff Ensminger's house. I'm watching Jeff finish up the drawing for my chestpiece and we're about to get started. :noes:

    No worries Almighty, they have a separate room set up as a studio.

    I honestly don't think that either one are all that booked up beyond just November. They've only been in town for two months and have been taking time to get acclamated to their new surroundings. They're both leaving for Europe in October for one month and from then on out they'll probably be full on taking appointments.

    I'll get pics as soon as I get my home internet working and when I don't look so brutalized. I'm super skinny so when I was getting worked on, it sounded like a woodpecker having it's way with me.

    Edit: We did this in roughly 5 hours. The next appointment is scheduled for mid-November. The work was done by Jeff Ensminger. He a fantastic artist who has so many tools, ideas, and skills to make tattoos look amazing!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! I'm very happy with the results of the first session so far. We have approximately 10 hours left to go total with the second session involving color, adding mech/organics, and more detail. I think that the third and final session will most likely just be tightening everything up and making it perfect.

    I really didn't know how asymmetrical my torso was until we measured things out and put the stencil on. I think that most artists try to align a chestpiece with your nose, chin, and Adam's apple. Putting a ruler/straightedge to my body and drawing reference lines made us both realize that from the neck down my upper body shifted to the right where my collarbones came together and then to the left where my pecs connected. This poses problems that artists have to overcome in order for the work to look even. Usually (especially with a body like mine) it just comes down to making to tattoo look relatively straight at first glance. If you're able to do that, you're good.

    I just need batteries for my camera and I should be able to get some pics. Pointing a camera towards yourself or holding one arm out to take a bathroom mirror pic also distorts the image.
