    Right now I'm in South Dakota, and this town is a military town. There's like 5 shops here and from what I've seen, they're not that great for their prices. I was thinking about going to Denver, which is 6-8 hours away. What's the farthest you guys have traveled for ink?

    I might wait until I go home on leave, there's a few good places in Alabama and Atlanta is only 3 hours away so I might do that.

    I just think if I get away from here I could get better work for a better price. I don't mind paying more money for quality, but from what I've seen, tattoo shops in military towns like to jack up prices b/c they know the military guys will pay for it.

    a friend of mine did a studies abroad program in london a few years back. a few months before he went, i half heartedly started to contact bugs from evil from the needle to schedule an appointment. i really didn't think that someone of his stature (sp?) would really reply to me. i pitched a couple ideas and symbolism to him and amazingly enough he got back to me. i must've read his reply a hundred times. for some reason i didn't think it was real.

    i remember being at the shop the day of the appointment. it was a surreal experience. he was listening to the funkiest music on repeat. the sun hadn't come out for the entire two weeks that we'd been in europe...it was always overcast and drizzly, but in the middle of getting inked it came out in all it's glory. it lasted for a good thirty minutes. the second it happened though, the music stopped and we just stared out the window for a good 5 minutes. it was cool.

    i went out to LA from austin to get more of it done in march as well. all in all, well worth it in the end to get work from someone i've been following for years upon years. [​IMG]

    I used to go to a place in Cheyenne, WY where the artist, Chris, does real nice work. That would save you about 1.5 hours.

    I went from Los Angeles up to Santa Barbara to get a tattoo.
    About 250 miles each way. If I could afford it I would not hesitate to hop a plane for a tat. I mean it's not like something you should bargain for, and you should shop for the best artist you can find.
