Me and my pal Shawn have been working on making some arm rests for tattooing for awhile now. The steel we used is completely recycled except for a few bits of hardware. I made the Mike Vallely pad myself from an old t-shirt. There's some redesign that needs to be done to make it operate a bit more reliably but all in all I'm happy with where this is going. We're calling our little operation Lazy Bastard.
I mixed some ink today too. The first time I've done it in about 9 years. Thanks Harlan.
