    I got this rib piece yesterday at Lucky 13 in Richmond. I generally didn't like their shop, but the artist I've worked with the most moved over there so I followed. After bleeding there for a bit, I actually really liked it and would go back. A close friend of mine drew the sketch of this and then the artist tattooed it almost perfectly (we made a few changes). Anyhow:

    Haha I took a nap when this artist (Lantz) did my shoulder tat. First thing he said when I walked in was "You ain't sleepin' through this shit today." He was correct.

    Yeah, The bottle's staying blank. And long story short, my father has struggled with drug and alcohol abuse for some 30 years. Now I party and drink pretty hard (I don't plan on shooting up ever), but I never want to lose sight of what you can become if you lose yourself in the lifestyle.

    You should! Their prices are really reasonable, and Lantz does really good work, I'd recommend him to anyone. Pm me if you want more info.

    I wouldn't say tattoos are required to have a back story, but all of mine do. All of my tattoos are a representation of self, but I don't judge others. It's an art form, and I appreciate the art.
