    This is actually my first blog, so I was hoping I could get some critiscism from the BHW community. If you could tell me what you think of the design, content, logo basically anything I am more then open to listening.

    Thanks.

    Everything looks fine, maybe some adsense just before the content in single post.
    And id change the "art" in the logo to another color seems dark for me. Another color maybe gold would be suitable.

    I only glanced at the page( didn't look at the code because that's not my bag). Just one small suggestion:

    If you're going to use adsense, try to integrate it seamlessly into the page. The adblock that I noticed was slightly misaligned and it stood out too much. Try repositioning a skyscraper in that same general area.

    looks fine but your niche is saturated and has low ctr

    Thanks for the great advice so far, I will be looking at the logo and the different colors schemes. Also I need to fix that adsense stuff. I know it is a bad market but I am primarily doing this blog so that I can refer back to it to potential clients who ask if I have experience etc. But you are right tattoo there is very little to be made in this market.

    If anyone has more ideas, I would be more then happy to hear them. Thanks everyone.

    looks like you are off to a good start. who is your webhost because it was VERY slow loading. I was surfing other sites too so I know it wasn't my connection! If I was Joe Surfer I would have moved on without stopping....

    ...You might want to change the font and the layout, exodusms.
    Below is one idea. If you like it and can't do it yourself, PM me with an email address and I will send it to you. As I don't have your header, if you want me to do the whole thing I will need you to email a copy to me with the exact dimensions. I will give you an email address if you PM me. In the spirit of Black Hat, there will be no charge.

    Some great idea, thanks magician I will be playing with that in photoshop. Also my webhost is 000webhost they are free so that would explain the load. I should probably switch to someone.
