my tattoo by mohicanjenn my tattoo by mohicanjenn
this is my tat, orginal concept by me. the kanji says "beloved grandfather"
Chris Garver is the artist he put his own artistic spin on it and even added Mt. Fuji in the backround.
Miami Ink was the shop i went to, if ud like to see the episode the show is on TLC starting Jan. 10 at 9
its a lil over 2 months old and i LOVE it
thank you chris garver for making my first tattoo so beautiful!

Hi,
I'm doing a school project on tattoos, and I was wondering if I could use this photography to illustrate the presentation booklet. You'll of course be credited in the booklet.

that one's so beautiful and i also saw the show when you had it done. garver is amazing and i think you are very lucky to have som of his art permanent on your body :) i've always wished that i could have a tat done from garver, kat von d etc. that would be soooo awesome :D my only question is how much did a piece like that cost?

congrats on your beautiful piece, by the way :) love everything about it.

lol yeah im a shy kid so being on the show was awkward plus i had my dad talking bout how i was a trouble maker and he wanted to kill me... oh soo embarrasing but chris actually told me he was the same way and he was really cool, seems like an awkward dood himself trying to deal with a new sort of fame, id like to get another from him, but he charges up the wazoo now and for smaller pieces... kinda sold out if ya ask me, really. the shop isnt even there anymore and the show pretty much disbanded i think. but man is chris garver real talented and he did this tatt and even freehanded mt.fuji on a whim. it was a great experience and i cant wait to get mny next tatt! its gonna be on my ribs!

On the ribs hurts man. i wonder why the shops no longer there.

i think it was mostly cos most tattoo shops dont last too long, some do but most dont. also they all ended up doing their own things. they had a juice place and a club and a clothing line aswell. they started working on other medias. but really i can only speculate. miami properties are expensive ( i should know i live here)
u got any rib pieces? i only heard they hurt.

Hi there, i was browsing through the galleries and wondered if there was any chance you could add this to a new tattoo site i'm helping build? the site's at [link] if you get a moment to take a look, - your tattoo looks amazing, and it'd be much appreciated if you could add it - the site's still young, so we're just starting out,

thanks for giving this a read, and hope all's well,
Tom
