Boggins has actually avoided learning the "rules" behind sacred geometry. "Now that might seem to be a discrediting answer," he admitted. "But the truth is that sometimes in life, especially where spirituality and artwork are concerned, I choose to remain ignorant intentionally. I find that this is sometimes the best way to find my own path, less influenced by others."
Viet is one of the coolest dudes you'll ever meet. After my very first visit with him, I walked out feeling like I had known him for years. He relates to you and makes you feel welcomed from your first sit down to your final session. He take his work very seriously, but is so down to earth and willing to do whatever you need to make it the best tattoo experience you can ever have. It took about 5 sessions to do my quarter sleeve, and after every session I felt like Viet was less of just a tattoo artist that inked me and more of a friend who I'd really come to know. I can say without a doubt that I'll never go to another tattoo shop again. If Viet moved to Alaska, I'd happily fly over there if I wanted more work done. No exaggeration.

Cambodia has a rich history and very ancient temples, it also has beautiful looking characters and words. As such it has become quite popular for people to get tattooed when they travel to Cambodia. It became even more in the last decade since Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie went under the gun with a Khmer style tattoo on her back and since then many have copied this style.
Placement is one of the most important things to determine for the tattoo. The design can be unique, creative and really attractive, but if it is not scaled to the body, it won’t work out the way you want. The question is: ”Are you getting a tattoo for its design or just to fill the empty spot on your body?”. The most important thing to remember is that a tattoo should complement your body, be a part of it, and look natural.

The variety of ideas for men’s tattoo are so rich, that you can spend weeks in search of your perfect tattoo. The choice of a design is very complicated and the true meaning of the picture will be open only for the owner. If you didn’t make up your mind yet which sketch to choose, you can always look through the photos in the saloons to choose one fitting exactly you. Though, there are few commonly used ideas for men’s tattoos:
First, before I decided to get one I researched pretty much all legitimate tattoo shops in the DFW area, and even some in Houston. Viet was the ONLY place that had all 5 star reviews (not just on Yelp, but other sites, too). That gave me some comfort, but continued to search just in case. Then I got on to his facebook page and saw his work (which he has more pictures of than on the Blink studio website) and WOW. It was beautiful and it appeared he could do pretty much everything!
Blink Tattoos isn't your typical tattoo business. It's located within a building in downtown that houses other businesses, and sessions are made strictly with appointments, so it's not a place someone can just walk in and look around while you're getting worked on. I've been to other prototypical shops in Deep Ellum and Bishop Arts with friends while they were getting tatted and a random person would walk in and my friend's tattooer would stop and talk to the potential client while leaving my friend to just wait til he finishes his conversation. Not with Viet. Once you make your appointment and walk in the door, it's all about you. He locks the door, silences his phone, and has his undivided attention on you and your tattoo. Appointments are scheduled pretty well in advance. Don't be surprised if you have to wait a month or so to schedule a session. A long wait, but just a testament to how in demand this guy is, and for good reason.
He left quite a bit of skin in between his images which is another popular look for sleeves. They don’t have to cover your entire arm although many people choose to do that. This allows for more art down the road or he may choose to leave the spots open forever. People feel mixed about this because some think it creates an unfinished look. At the end of the day, it’s up to your personal preference.
The answers to those questions will determine whether you’re looking for a design or a specific image. A lot of guys are going for floral, geometric, or tribal designs just for the artistry. They add some flair to your skin. Other men choose images of religious figures, verses of Scriptures, or popular quotes to remind themselves and others what they believe in. Others feature tattoos of tigers, warriors, and dragons to show their strength. Still others get tattoos of skulls, an hourglass, or death faces to say, “I know it’s coming and I’m not afraid.” Finally, many men get tattoos of their favorite superheroes, movie characters, video games, or sports team logos as a sign of where their interests lie.
