It's always good to see new tabletop gamers.It seems with all the high tech distractions we are on the verge of becoming an endangered species.

Here is a few rare photos of me... I hate my picture taken! As a warning, if you thought your non-sterotypical gamer pictures were good, check these out! :perv: This is what happens when you start you drawing on yourself at a young age!

Anyways, these are real photos, and no chopping except for the one for fun. That, and the mohawk is completely gone now, so you have to ignore that.


This was right after my face was tattooed... looks like I cant get a regular 9-5 job anymore.



Me doing my job...


Just for fun...


Some of my work that you will recognize! :)

I live in Idaho Falls, ID, but I am going to start traveling for tattoo conventions hopefully pretty soon.

If you want, add me either on myspace or facebook (www.myspace.com/troll4666 or www.facebook.com/Troll4666) and you can watch me for where ever I am heading.

Yeah really nice. I am hoping to get a sleeve done next year, thought I am trying to design one that flows altogether down the arm. I dislike the ones that are made up of different unrelated tattoos.

Desciple, make sure you check all around your area. Your in the UK, and I know without a doubt that there are some really skilled artists in your area. Portfolios are going to be a major aspect, and for a sleeve, you are going to spend a LOT of time in the chair. Even in our own shop, we have 5 tattooists, and each of us has our own flair that we add to every piece we do. For example, I use a LOT of color, focusing a lot on American Illustrative (pick your style like realism or traditional and shade it out all new school, bright colors, underglow) Your best bet is to go in, with an idea, a few references, and let the artist have fun. Just remember that for good work, you want to pay the extra. Find out the hourly rate, plan what you can do every month, and go with it from there.

Recently I just finished a sleeve based on Alice Coopers schools out for summer. We have a whole bunch of just random things, but it all has to do with the lyrics and a simple background to tie it all in.

While not entirely technically correct perhaps, this (slightly) modified picture of me at a class party is just too good to pass up here! In my own humble opinion, of course..

"..and this my happy face." :devil2:

Edit: woah, and I just now noticed the picture in the post above mine. That looks nice, gross and gooey. :vampire2:

Hells yes.

More snowy pics when the internet is being less slow & useless & I can set up a flickr page in less than 4 flippin' years. Turns out England is slightly less boring than anticipated.

First off you'll need to upload your image to a hosting website. ImageShack is an example. There you can browse your computer for the picture you wish to upload quickly and easily. Remember to make sure that the image you upload isn't excessively large like they often are when coming out of a camera. You'll find a bunch of resizing options on ImageShack below the Upload/Browse field. When you're done, click the big Upload Now button. After that you'll find some different links on the left side of the screen, two of them being 'Link' and 'Direct Link' - both of these will work for this purpose. Copy the text in one of the fields, and create a new reply here on CN. In the row of red buttons just above the window for typing your text you'll find one that says "Insert image" if you hover your mouse cursor over it. Click on it, and paste your copied image link text into the window that appears. When you press 'OK', the correct code for the image will appear at the spot where you left the cursor in the text-typing window when you clicked on the "Insert image" button. You're of course free to move it around by using copy+paste after that. :)

Let us know if things still aren't working out like you want it to~
