Is there some reason why he can't buy his own gun? Something in his background he doesn't want dug up?

I thought you said you were too smart to do things illegally.

If you are seriously considering buying a firearm for someone else other than a blood relative then you are a complete idiot.

If YOU buy the gun it is registered in YOUR name: If that gun is used for any illegal purpose guess who's door the authorities will be knocking on first?

I doubt that anybody that asks someone else to purchase a firearm for them has legal use in mind for it.

Three thoughts:

1. Keep the gun, it's more practical.

2. Get a job before worrying about tattoos.

3. Earning $100 in two weeks through " scams," is nothing to be
proud of.

Geez ! America !, what a country !

Probably the only country in the world where exchanging a deadly firearm in order to get a tattoo makes good business sense !

So whats the going rate in the gun/tattoo exchange ratio ?, if it's a large complex tattoo say covering the whole of your back, what would the price be then ?, a rocket propelled grenade ?, a mortar ?

And then what if you want it coloured as well ?, what then ?, generous supply of anthrax ?, thermonuclear device in a handy briefcase ?

I hadn't thought of that, but, considering some of his other posts, I wouldn't put it past him to have meant a firearm.

First of all, Id like to point out that you say that this guy said he needs a NEW gun. There is quite a difference between needing A GUN and needing a NEW gun. This suggests that he had one before and it got taken away from him due to previous criminal activity. And then the fact that he would need someone else to buy it for him just makes it more obvious.

He seems pretty desperate to get a new gun if hes going to give you a nice tattoo for free, and if he can afford to give you a free tattoo, then he could certainly afford to buy his own gun if he was allowed to have one. It sounds pretty fishy to me.

Do you really want to have this guy to do your tattoos, or have any further contact with him? How do you know hes not going to be bribing you to go shoot people for him next? How do you know you are not one of his targets?

I dont think you should trust this guy. You might want to find someone else to do your tattoos.

Am I the only one who thinks maybe Ascendency meant a tatoo gun and didn't bother to specify?

It's pretty common knowledge that tatoo guns are tatoo guns.

I think everyone just picked up on the easiest thing to ridicule.

Free tatoo gun = free tatoo.

Seems likely to me.

Just a thought.

And one that doesn't seem so far fetched considering the context of this post.

Ive been a professional tattooer for 16 years. You want my advice; here goes:
Quote:

he said if I bought him a new gun



Anyone who calls a tattoo machine a gun is not a professional.
This simple word separates the amateur from the pro. Hes obviously ignorant.
Quote:

he would do my tattoos for free.



You're a guinea pig for said amateur.

Let me know when you want his mistakes fixed.
For a fee of course.

We have a saying in the business.
Go to a pro.

That sums it up.

I forgot about that.

You professionals like to call them "machines," right?

A buddy of mine wanted to get a tattoo, but wanted to shop around for prices. After some shopping, he settled on a local tattoo joint called, Tattoo Mafia. Just before the session started he asked the artist how clean his "tattoo gun" was; for just a second, the man looked like he wanted to kill him.

I was fairly amused by the whole situation.

I have never heard of the term 'tatoo gun'. Granted, I do not have any tatoos myself, but I have friends that do and they have never used the term 'tatoo gun'.

Goes back to the whole amateur/professional thing I guess.

I have no tattoos, however, I have friends that have many; I'd never heard it called anything but a tattoo gun until very recently.

Also until recently, I thought it was common knowledge.

Go figure.

Mars is absolutely correct. You get what you pay for. Although there are halfway decent artists who do work from home, the equipment is the responsibility of the Tattooist...and yes "machine" is the proper term for the equipment. Go to a professional, the money you spend will be probably equivalent to that of a new machine and if that artist needs a new machine then he will get one.

For those thinking about going to a non professional:

The above is indeed true but keep in mind that in most States in the U.S. it is illegal to tattoo without a business license and a Dept. of Health Inspection Certificate.

I doubt highly that a Scab would fork out the $3,500 for a good sterilizer let alone know about infectious disease protocols.

Something to keep in mind.

You know that feeling you get at the end of a shit film, when you realise you just wasted 2 hours, 6 and feel sicky from eating stale popcorn.

I just got alllll that from this thread. Even more so as I bothered to type this.

A license does not a good tattoo artist make. I hope that you were at least smart enough to see a few samples of his work.

If you ask me, someone who is too damn lazy to even hit the "shift" key AND who committed and was convicted of a felony twice doesn't deserve a Baphomet tattoo.
