Hey there, folks.
The art of the stick-n-poke tattoo method has resonated with my being for some time now.. I began experimenting about a year before hitting the road. Since then, I've been trusted to tattoo more people that I could have ever imagined.. and I've been able to gather a few photos of some that i've done over ther last couple of years.
Hope y'all get a kick.

Show me yer skills/style!!
I've been sticking with horror theme, lately..

I did exactly one . To myself, when I was 13 years old in 8th grade, in 1973 Had to hide it fom my parents by wearing long sleeves, but that was easy as that was the disco era and long sleeves were in, along with platform shoes, wide bellbottoms.

Honestly, whenever I see everyone else doing the exact same thing jumping on a bandwagon - I loose interest. Now that everyone and their brother is tatted head-to-toe, forget it. But in 1973, how many thirteen year-olds had any kind of tattoo?

Who was it that said “ Whenever you find yourself in the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.”?

I personally have tattoos because I enjoy them. It's never been a "need to fit into a group" kind of thing. Though, many of my good friends enjoy tattoos as well, so it's always an enjoyable pass time to get some needles n ink together, and practice on each other. Really glad that they are common enough these days to not bar me from so many people, and their unnecessary judgements.Though, it still happens. Seeing cops with neck tattoos helps me humanize them more, actually. @Jackthereaper

Mark Twain who ironically also said something about "rather to be judged as a fool with a closed mouth instead of opening it and leaving no room for doubt" ;)
I hear you though they are far from necessary but I never saw it as a fashion thing or to show off; I have maybe about half of my body tattooed, 130 hours I think beneath the needle but nothing visible with pants and shirt.

I only still like a couple of them 100% of the time. I have one that I did on myself that I will upload

We used to have wine and cheese and stick and poke nights. It was always a pretty fun time. They all look like shit -which is the point-to-point but i like them.

In other tattoo related news, face tats seem to be main stream from what i can tell.
