2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Who would be so famous as to attract a young, American Hollywood actress halfway around the globe, to Bangkok?

She has a house in Cambodia that she visits often, so I've heard. She probably got inked during a stopover.

Yeah, probably, but I remember reading that the artist was one she sought out specifically, and that he was very, very famous in California, USA.

So I'm thinkin, who would be so famous in Bangkok?

Maybe he's famous only on the Malay peninsula and in SE Asia, and I just remember it wrong. :idunno:

Tattooing in Taiwan...

Postby daryl_ks » 06 Jul 2005, 13:56

Anyone have any experiences, good or bad, with tattoos in Taiwan...

I personally am a fan of tattoos but have yet to get one done... I have been planning it for quite a few years now and have still not quite gotten there... I am llooking at doing something that combines both my New Zealand heritage and the Chinese culture that my wife belongs to.

Therefore, I'd be very interested in hearing from anyone who has had tattooing experiences. I am more interested in art work as opposed to characters...

Cheers!

There's a tattoo place at the Wall on the corner of Roosevelt and Jilung.
You can get a variety of Maori wannabe or tramp stamp designs there.

Jay from The Wall can actually draw really well. He has some of his sketchbooks in the store, and I really love his style. Tattoo artists can't always help what people ask them to do, you know. He might just be a little bit better than the soundpeople at The Wall. (ahem)

The one that most of my friends have used, though, and that is apparently quite good is in that 6/7 storey small mall-thing that has been discussed here before. The top two floors have all those model soldiers/airplanes/anime toys stuff for hobbyists. On the third or fourth floor there is a Lip Service clothing store, and on the floor just above it there is a tattoo place. I think it is on Kun ming street in Ximen Ting.

Jay

Postby Battery9 » 06 Jul 2005, 19:17

I got this done at Jay when he was still in an alley in Hsimending (Ximending). Cost me NT$ 4000, but I had contacts:) As you can see his fonts are a bit off...like a bad nectarine. He draws freely, not trace it like they do back home. So the N is small, and the 'h' looks like a small 'n'. But the little circle between the 8 and the 10 is perfect........that is very hard to do.Image

I would go there again.[/img]
