Inky's Tattoo Gallery
I made a comment in a hub a while back, that I am not into tattoos, that is I won't consider getting a tattoo, but if I ever changed my mind, I would have my friend Inky who is a tattoo artist living in Idaho give me one. I do however, admire the art and the ability of the tattoo artist to be able to actually create art on skin. I wonder what its like having to deal with the emotions and personalities of diverse clients while trying to create.
Inky is a beautiful, talented, gentle soul, with the most beautiful azure blue eyes that speak of her innate wisdom; she is highly spiritual, into meditation, practices Yoga, and often makes copies of inspiring spiritual thoughts or rambles as we like to call them and leaves them in the waiting room for her customers to read. She has had customer's travel to Idaho or wait years until they are ready and have her do their tattoos.
For those who are in her area or can travel, her shop is at:
246 W. Center
The following is a collection of her work:
Yes We Can!

You think it, I ink it. ~Saying of tattooists
I leave you with some thoughts on tattoos:
"A genuine tattoo.... tells a story. I like stories and tattoos, no matter how well done, and if they don't tell a story that involves you emotionally, then they're just there for decoration, then they're not a valid tattoo. There has to be some emotional appeal or they're not, to my way of thinking, a real tattoo. It tells people what you are and what you believe in, so there's no mistakes. ~Leo, tattooist, 1993, quoted in Margo DeMello, Bodies of Inscription, 2000
The tattoo attracts and also repels precisely because it is different." ~Margo DeMello, Bodies of Inscription: A Cultural History of the Modern Tattoo Community, 2000
"Ink to paper is thoughtful
Ink to flesh, hard-core.
If Shakespeare were a tattooist
We'd appreciate body art more."
"Primitive tribes were certainly convinced that the spirit, having escaped from the body at death, retained a replica of its earthly tenement. They therefore used tattoo marks as a means of identification in the next world and a passport to future happiness." ~Ronald Scutt
