Hi guys!

I figured it was time for a new tattoo, so I just went to the studio and got one... biggrin.gif
Okay, for real, I always knew I wanted a Grizzly Bear tattoo and spent a huge amount of time looking for the right picture. I went to my tattoo artist who already did my last tattoo and asked her if she could do it.. She said of course as animals and realistic tattoos are her specialty. Then she called me two months ago to postpone our date by one week and asked me to come to the "tattoo ink explosion" convention to do the tattoo there, since this one would be very important for her work.
So I went to this convention, where all these heavily tattooed guys and girls were running around.
Our session started, after 3 hours we took a break and I was walking around, grabbing some food. People started talking to me who was doing this, where they could find her and stuff...
So we continued our session and once we got close to finishing (after another 2 hours) I realized that a huge group gathered around us, quite a few artists among them. "Dude, you really have to take part in the competition tonight, just fill out this form!" said one of them.
Guess what, my tattoo (or rather my artist) won in the categories "best realistic" and "best of the day".
I'm really happy for my tattoo artist cause she does great work and I really hope she gets a bit more famous now, she really deserves it.
Needless to say, I'm really happy with the result as well smile.gif

I waited until I finished reading your post before I looked at the picture. I was expecting a serene photo. A bear out in the wilderness, by the stream, with a fish in his mouth. happy.gif

*Scrolls down*

HOLY MOMMA BEAR!! It freaked me out for a second. biggrin.gif Looks very awesome! And although I wouldn't want something so "loud" on my arm, the fact that you won a prize for it and that your dedication to sit through 5 hours of it is great! Anybody trying to mess with you will face the wrath of the bear!! wink.gif

Haha, thanks Brandon! I found a screaming bear is just more rock'n'roll laugh.gif
I actually don't care about the prize, but I am really happy for the artist who did it because she really deserves it. I could tell that she was really proud of her work and this one artist from the UK (who seems to be well known in the scene) told her "Girl, it's beyond me why you're not famous yet."
And yes, prepare for some more shenanigans from now on laugh.gif

I was kinda expecting this earlier laugh.gif
it's so annoying that I honestly hate this song, but it's stuck in my head and I sometimes hum it...so there must be a bit of love involved laugh.gif

Yeah, that was pretty intense...but since it was at a convention and the girl usually works in my hometown Münster there was no choice but doing it in one session. We had a little food break in between though biggrin.gif

I actually never thought about a 3D tattoo wink.gif Since I got the two tattoos I wanted now (guitar and bear) I doubt that I'll ever get a 3D tattoo...but never say never wink.gif
