Lucky trigger finger

I got a horse shoe and a 4 leaf clover tattoo on my trigger finger the other day, if I ever have to really use it I'll take all the luck I can get.

This is probably a good forum to start a tattoo thread on.

Nice work, BTW. I've always been told that fingers are a bad place to have ink. I've heard that it doesn't hold up well. My wife and I were going to get wedding band tatts, and our artist said he wouldn't even do it.

Yeah I would like to see a tattoo thread.

Al, it is true the closer you get to the wrist the more likely the ink might push out when it heals, but that's nothing a quick retouch wouldn't fix. They was being lazy.

Also I said more likely cause all tat's can leak ink and need retouched, it all depends on how skilled the tattoo'er is and knows where to lay the ink, too deep you bleed the ink comes out, to shallow when it scabs the ink peals off.

I have 11 tattoo's on my fingers and 2 on my hands, out of all of them 1 needed retouched, and it was nothing more then a 1/2" line that faded a little, it took 2 seconds to run the needle over again, and it's been good for over 2 years now.

DAT, never entered a contest, and don't know of any around here. I would ask but I would probably get the same response I when asking about shooting ranges, "go to so and so street, ask for some crack and run off with it, and practice your gun work, just watch for their ricochets cause they can't hit shit" I've heard it 20 or some times and they all laugh like that just made it up on the spot. But that's life what can you do?

Lord knows I need to find a range, I'm sick of the state game land range, and now that they want you to pay $30 a years to use the game land range, I definitively need one. I've tried plenty of times and plenty of places. Everyone close to me, you need a sponsor, and they have to vote you in. When I go to find a sponsor, I get the we don't want people like you showing up here and bringing friends look.

Saiga, the state game land range @ $30. per year sounds like a bargain to me. Up in my neck o' the woods memberships run around $200. or more a year. I'm sure your trigger finger tat hadda stand you $30. or more. Buyin' a box of ammo, and practicing is gonna help you more if the SHTF, than any "luck" that tat's gonna bring you. You needa reorder your priorities, son. OF COURSE, this is only IMHO as it's REALLY NONE OF MY BUSINESS. It's your $$$, YOU can spend it how you see fit. The downside of gettin' all tatted up is that you elicit those kinda looks from "mainstream" people. Fair or not, judgements are made on strangers based solely upon appearances. That's the only data that people can analyze as they know NOTHING else about you except how you look. I have tattoos myself, but all of them can be covered by a short sleeve T-shirt. They have never hampered me in gaining employment or in any social situations because they are not out there for the world to see, unless I choose to reveal them. The 1st thoughts that run through a person's mind when they see someone tatted up, especially on their fingers, hands, neck, or face is that they're in a gang, and/or they've done a few bids and are on their way to doing life on the installment plan. If that ain't you, DON'T dress the part. BTW--I realize that this unsolicited guidance comes kinda late in the game to help you. Best wishes, as usual..........

1eye, u make some good points. Just because it's not right doesn't mean it's not true. I get looks, and I don't have near that level of ink(As saiga does).

Saiga, I feel ya on the judgement thing. We have some private ranges around here that really jerk my chain. I mean, you have these guys rollin in there on their $40k Harleys, all dressed in black and the latest $50 HD t shirt, really tryin to look "The part". Then they see some of "Us" rollin in there tatted up, obviously some have former(Or not-so) affiliations. They can't bear to take their eyes off of us for a minute. Like you said, try to get voted in, and they make it seem like a takeover. Like someone's gonna convert the clubhouse to the new crack spot. I understand the apprehension, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. We all had some questionable people in our past. Most of us were smart enuff to not mark ourselves with signs of where we'd been or people we hung with. Not all of us were that smart, but were smart enuff to make a break from that life and those people, after "scarring" ourselves for the world to see. Bad choices that we'll undoubtedly have to pay for forever. Sorry that got so far off topic. I hope you can find yourself a range. If not, come on and take a road trip. I'm right around the corner from the NRA range, and I'm sure they won't close the door in your face.

Now, about that tattoo thread...
