Sorry if thats harsh, but its my opinion.
aint a harsh comment mate, i totally agree. considering thats his idea of a "strong portfolio".....

oooooh dear!

good bit is that at 18 - the world is your oyster - and even though this clearly isn't for you, there will be your dream job out there somewhere else

good luck

thanks for the insight,
but i do have better things i've done,
a hell of a lot better then the ones ive posted up,
my only thing is i have had pictures stolen from me so im a little edgy about putting them up
and im already an art student, but they dont teach the style that i try to do

No art schools teach "Style". You need to find that for yourself.

If you have better, please do show us. You can always take the picture back down after a couple of hours.

well you're not going to get any offers unless you put up your better work... if anything putting up not-so-good work will put people off you as a student. Plenty of tattooists read this forum... if I were you, i would just post one or two of your good pieces to showcase your abilities
