Kia ora J - Welcome to TC. Thanks for showing us your bones, Im hooked..

Maybe you could answer a question thats buzzed my mind on occasion: do you find any similarity between using a tattoo gun & using an electric carving handpiece..? Im aware of the differences between the disciplines, but as someone familiar with both tools Id be interested to hear your thoughts.. (just a hangover from the childhood fantasy of being a tattooist - we didnt all want to be firemen did we?)
BTW, youll find fellow bonescrapers and tattooists at TC if youre looking for them.

My fave is the 2nd-to-last matau/hook, the thinnest one, very cool.

Any TIKIs?

Thanks for the reply s vampiress,tikifreak ,tikiduddy
Tama I use almost the same formula as tattooing .
the only differences for me is im used to a up and down motion
verses an circle motion and the bites i have are way bigger than my needles.
i made my own machines they are one piece solid bronze very heavy machine,
my tubes for lining and shading are 1" in diameter i don't use round needles to color as i am used to making my own magnums <<<< old skool lol
i bought a fordom flex shaft grinder but i have yet to use it i have a old dremel and a black and decker and master craft i use . Its different trauma on the wrists after awhile .
4wdtiki here is some pics of my work and tama heres a couple of knifes i have done .
i am in the proses of buying a house so my space is limited here but soon i hope to be in a new home .

Oh, so there's more!?! Great!

Keep all your carving in the same thread. It's like a portfolio.

I just checked this thread out, nice work on both the carvings and tats. Welcome aboard.

Your answer to TTT on the difference between a tattooing and carving was insightful, I've wondered the same thing on occasion.

Thanks i was a little confused .>>>don't take much
Jonnyp
thanks for the kind words. what makes carving so cool is you have no time limit sent by your customers and there thresh hold of pain . plus it allows my self to go @ my own pace .
I will post some more pics of stuff i have just finished .
critasizum is well appreciated.
best wishes
J
