Good luck with that man. Are you still at QCC this semester? Haven't seen your car in a while.
Where are you going for basic training?
Anyway, hope your buddy takes good care of your baby till you get out.
And will an acura crx seat on the 90's era fit my 90 dx?

I have a charcoal drawing that I know the artist and have his permission to have it done. I'd like to give the tatoo artist references for the proper colors but wanted to hear thoughts from those who have 'em.

1. Is color harder/easier/same to have done?
2. Is color harder/easier/same to maintain (I'm aware of sun fading colors)?
3. Is color harder/easier/same for healing (since I have to have clothes over it most of the time)?

Any and all opinions welcome.
imho black/color tattoos require the same care. you should avoid pools /sun while they're fresh. it will take 1-2 months to properly cure and set in. for maintenance just dab a bit of moisturizer creme everyday.
yay.

Nice. I've been thinking of getting something myself. So far I've yet to find something worth it. Perhaps something about my cousin that passed away a few years ago at 26 years old. But having said that do I rly need a tattoo for that?

And on an other matter, I did something stupid on Saturday. This isn't an end to my ZC, it's still hibernating waiting for spring. But more of a possibility of even more "probably not a good idea for the road" mods. This thing is a cruiser and won't be modded(much if at all).

Jack Daniel's Starts Marketing Directly To Children
'Let's Just See How This Goes,' Says CEO

Image

LYNCHBURG, TN—With new ads out this week that depict 8-year-olds pouring whiskey into colorful plastic cups of lemonade while relaxing on their playroom floors, popular beverage distiller Jack Daniel’s has launched its first media campaign aimed directly at preadolescents. “We’ve been working hard to create a new image for our brand, one in which smart, sophisticated kids lounge on playground swing sets, unwind on beanbag chairs, and even jump on their beds, all while enjoying a refreshing tumbler of Jack on the rocks,” said CEO Paul Varga, adding that the brand-building effort marked the company’s first attempt to pitch hard liquor directly to the large, untapped elementary school demographic. “Some say it’s not a good idea, but at this point we’ve saturated the adult market, so we figure it’s at least worth a try. Besides, when kids come home from a long day of third grade, they’re looking for a way to take their mind off things before dinnertime comes and their parents start asking them a bunch of questions about what they learned at school that day.” Varga said that if the marketing campaign fails to win over the 6-to-10-year-old consumer, the Jack Daniel’s team would consider repackaging its flagship product in 6.75-ounce juiceboxes.
