Rock Star Tattoo in Milwaukee

Here it is......... Yup, got me some ink.

We met Brock a few years back when we were in Milwaukee on a motorcycle trip. Long story on how that came to be.

In a nut shell....... Andrew was tattooed by him then.

Turned out great.

Ashley was tattooing a client and the client was using a 'Boobie" squeeze ball to help ease the pain. From my perspective it was hysterical so I asked to grab a pic.

Here is the finished product. The best thing about it is that it is covering a tattoo that I got over 10 years ago. It was a faded Celtic sun that was poorly executed. The swirl to the left of the koi is where it was. Look closely..............


It attaches to one I got a couple years ago (lower right).

This one hurt so freaking much a bunch. I was in the chair for 4.5 hours. It was a piece that should have been done over 2 sessions........ I don't get to Milwaukee very often so it had to be done all at once.

I am glad I got it done..... but it may be a while before I get another...... Maybe?!

What kind of tattoo experiences have you, or someone you know, had?

Gotta run.

That's gorgeous! It def looks worth the pain and the colors are brillant! I so need to do a cover up on an old tattoo but I really don't want to spend the time or money even though every time I even so much as think of it I wish it wasn't there. Removal is out of the question so why do I keep putting off the cover up? You may have just convinced me to get to thinking...

Always good to find a good artist. My first tattoo was by the Reverend Mad Jack here in Chicago, a North Coast eagle and salmon.

Wow! That is some serious work and very colorful, I like it! That is forever to sit in the chair though. Yikes! I had my tattoo done in 1997 and took all of about 10 minutes. It is just a simple like in the shape of one Mr. Mickey Mouse, about the size of a quarter and two dimes. That was enough pain for me!

Your tattoo artist was sporting Nike Frees ? haha.

Looks really awesome, love the brilliant colors!

I want to get an Mdot tattoo above my ankle, nothing huge, just a constant reminder of my journey.

Kolas: I'll check out " the Reverend"......... Maybe next time I'm in Chicago?

Thanks Juli :)

Fruit Fly....... Hoping I'll forget about the pain soon ;-)

Have fun getting your tat Matty O.

Niiiiice. I bet that took away the pain from your feet or are they better now? Did Andrew get any new tats?

Awesome tattoo!!! The fish looks amazing.

I started getting ink at 16. My mom's boyfriend's friend did my second tattoo in his kitchen. It was the sixth he'd ever done. A few years later I went to a new shop with my little sister for tattoo #7, and the guy freaked out when he saw one of my tattoos - it turns out he was the kitchen tattoo artist! Kind of nice to know he went on to work in a shop. :) I haven't been tattooed in over three years now, and I miss it.

I like it

The best (boring and not that great) story about tats is when a friend wanted to get his name across his back, he asked if I would come along and video tape it, he cried like a sissy over the pain and told me to stop recording, which I didnt.

Just love the tattoo and it has some great color! It's nice to find an artist that you like and does a great job. I've got 10 tats and a piercing and ready to get another one next month.

First of all I must say I LOVE Milwaukee! Just went for the first time this year and thought it was the coolest town. The people are stylish and the coffee shops were lively.

Great tattoo! You're a ROCKSTAR!
