Whats Hawaii like compared to LA, Im looking at coming to the states from Australia for 4 monthhs on a work Visa, Im thinking either Cali (LA) or Hawaii. I work in the Airline industry so I might be working at LAX.

^ That's funny, my homeboy's Jesus and Chris (no lie) moved from Eastside Long Beach to Queens Village for airline jobs. They say they went from the Eastside, to the Eastside, to the Eastside (east queens) LOL. They been here for like 2 years already. I heard there's a lot of perks to working in the Airlines, like they find you housing, provide transport, good benefits, etc.

Anyways, homie, I been to Honolulu. And if there was anywhere I would choose to live when I want to cool out and enjoy life, it would be there. Because its just a quick trip to anywhere else in the islands, if you need to get away. you got the beach, swap meets, city living, the best weather and probably some fine ass cool women. Without the BS about LA like traffic. I love LA, but it's because I was raised there. If you don't love it then you might as well move to a nicer place.

But to stay on the topic :) LA tats look pretty hard. Probably not on the arm like typical but on the leg or forearm or shoulder that shit is hard. I see some dudes out here with the NY (Yankees logo) tats and it don't look right. tight when they fill in the LA letters with pictures and scenes and shit, instead of just the solid black.

using pictures for fill is sweet... my friend has "holy evil" on his back in a different style olde english, and the artist did a freehand picture of a demon in the letters... its pretty tight... it probably cost him upwards of $1000... he always tells people "it betta be tight, shit.." wish i could ball like that..
