Well if you are interested here goes. I am a solids control engineer basically I run centrifuges used to condition drilling fluid (MUD) on an offshore drilling rig. Do i like my job? Yes, it sucks leaving home for a month at a time but I also only work 6 months of the year so thats the sweet part about it....its the greatest job in the world when your going home on days off LOL. Also getting one night in Bangkok going and coming from work is great, drinking piss in Bangkok is awesome what sights you see there unreal. The bad part is no [51] or[stoned] offshore, and for all the people that think Thai stick is good bull shit B.C hydro is the bomb [36] ......Thai stick is like smoking shake, it just dont cut it.......

You ain't going to get aids from having a tattoo done. Aids is spread through body fluids and it can not live outside of the human body. About the only way that you might (and that is a very big might) get aids from tattooing is if you willingly let the artist tattoo yourself and a known aids patient at the same time that way yours and theirs body fluids would be mixed.

Was your work done by machine or bamboo?

WOW !!!!! buddy I dont know where you get your info on contraction and spreading of bloodborn pathogens , but I would'nt trust your life to it


All be it though you got a better chance getting aids in a hospital then you do in a tattoo parlour

I don't know what you mean? The Aids virus cannot sustain itself outside of the human body it dies in a matter of seconds. It thrives on bodily fluids mainly blood and semen and it needs these to survive without either it will die.
It is quite safe to give an aids paitent the kiss of life unless they have open soars or cuts around the mouth. Aids does not thrive very well in saliva and the chances of you contracting it through saliva contact are little to none. I get my info from my wife she deals with Aids paitents as well as cancer paitents and other terminal diseases on a regular (daily) basis in her role as a RN in hospice.
Most people are terrified of Aids as they do not understand it in reality the only way that you can catch it is through cross contamination with either blood or semen.

ok here we go ... To the smart ass comments..Fuck You !!!
If there is anyone on here who thinks they know more about the tattoo and body piercing industry then step up !!! I am certified in a couple dozen different states and god knwos how many countries I have been through 100s of hours of pathogen courses, been in the industry for over 15 yrs, its not my fault people here that are getting tattoos or doing tattoos that are 10 yrs behind and totally ok with getting and doing shitty blown out biker tattoos .I dont give a flying shit who thinks what about my art or know how, Im more then confident in my abilities to perform and educate on or in my industry.. dont give me grief because I know what I am doing!!!!!!

as for the aids thing , there is a lot more to worry about then direct contact in the process of tattooing and cross contamination, such as the fact that people are talking( which I do believe casts saliva into the air at some 500 fps or so) directly over a huge open wound, there are many shade tree tattooist that reuse needles (and or pigments)while keeping them in a MOIST storage as so the exsisting pigments do not dry and tarnish or pitt the needles...there is many ways to catch aids, I was not doubting your wifes knowledge of the disease simply saying there is way more ways then you think to transfer aids to a person through this industry ..a clients own mistake or the artist actions...

take it how you will I dont care ,,im simply sayin,,,

and on the worth it part ...CHEAP TATTOOS ARE NOT GOOD AND GOOD TATTOOS ARE NOT CHEAP !!!! $400 for 14 hrs of work .... HE GOT WHAT HE PAID FOR !!!
If it was done properly and professionally by a proper tattooist it would have looked a lot better all be it costing a whole shit load more!!!!

Listen here fucker I never asked you to shoot down my tattoo a guy asked how much it cost and I told him.I got it done in Thailand not B.C so if you have ever traveled to Asia or any other no western world country not including Europe you will know that things are cheaper a beer for fuck sakes costs 1.50 canadian in a bar, also concernig Aids I went to this tattoo parlour and watched then do work several times before getting it done and made the mistake of going else were for the first 7 hour session then went to the original to get them to fix up the first so callled artists fuck ups. So ya its not bcwheeler perfect I agree, but hay not every one is a pacasso fucker go fuck yourself go fuck yourself go fuck yourself go fuck yourself You call yourself a pro and you shoot down other artists work go fuck yourself

hahhaa there there buddy I wasnt knocking you or your idea,,simply the work I m not comparing it to my work two different animals to compare... good on ya for checking out your artist before you got work done!!!!Good on ya for saving 800 bucks, its a tattoo that you are happy with then awesome!!! Im sureit will be a good story or years to come about your life and travels thats what tattooing is about!!!! but I could give a fuck about what people think about others art or my art but if you are gonna post it up take the critisism !! and as for your fucker comment choose your words as if you were here buddy !!!! cause you dont know me !!! oh and to your professionalism comment .. Who would be more professional , the artist whos says wow what a great tattoo when knowing damn good and well they should be telling the person the truth about thier art , when it affects thier industry and thier living and the better well being of the person collecting the art!!!!)Or the one thats tells it how it is!!!Im sorry honesty not a good policy round here????
Look I am a professional tattoo artist and have put my heart and sole blood sweat and tears for over 15 yrs into making this industry the best and longest most appreciated form of art the world has ever seen , I will not stand idle and watch hackers ruin what I have worked so hard to help create.. For every bad tattoo that goes unspoken about that turns into 10000 people real fast who dont get tattooed because they have seen so many bad ones!!!

And if you cannot understand that then oh fucking well !!!!

Working long in the industry doesn't automatically make you talented or skilled.

I think that tattoo looks fine. Lines are little off on the flames, but still looks cool.

CHEAP TATTOOS ARE NOT GOOD AND GOOD TATTOOS ARE NOT CHEAP

I pay a pretty good rate that is far less then an expensive shop and still get real good work.
