That's what I did, when people admire it now and ask where I got it I tell them it was done in Australia.

It makes it even more memorable. Are you going anywhere near Melbourne by any chance?

No never been, but I admire a lot of tattoos that come from there. But I am planning on NY & California in the next couple of years!

Depends where you go, but some places are really good.

It's a bastard when it comes to aftercare though. Using a combination of Bepanthen and suncream to keep it healing and sunburn free.

That's what I was thinking, didn't want any hassle while I was away. I'll try ringing round a few places tomorrow. cheers

If you're anywhere near Victoria I'd recommend Dynamic Tattoo in Richmond. Fantastic place, great group of guys, rather pricey at AUS$150 an hour but I'm ecstatic by what I had done.

The owner, Trevor McStay, has had his work exhibited in the National Gallery of Victoria.

It's not a great pic as I'm not a great photographer but this is it;



The Samurai took 3 and a half hours, the cherry blossom tree and shading took an hour and a half.

Booked in with Phil Kyle in the end a few weeks ago, for the 4th June.

I need to book my flight and am trying to work out how long it will take to heal. im thinking 3-4 weeks? I dont fancy being in a hot country while it's still healing.
