hey folks. im scott and im 21 years old. always loved tattoos and seeing artist do incredible pieces. just got my fourth one done n workin on some more ideas. i think they put something in the ink lol jk

- - - Updated - - -

also i was hoping someone could answer a quick question for me. ive had my new piece for almost 9 days now and most of it scabbed and flaked off, some naturally and some while sleeping or at work, but theres one part where the scab is really thick and somewhat dry n cracking looking. i followed care instructions like i should but i think something went wrong on this particular part. i used ointment for the first few days then just used non fragrence lotion. but today a piece of scab got caught on jeans or whatever n ripped off and i noticed a scar where the scab was, then a good bit of blood seeped out. it may have been a lil overworked or just a lot of black ink, idk. can somebody please give an explanation? i know i gotta go get it touched up because most of the ink didnt take well, i guess, but if someone could possibly help me out it would be very much appreciated. just hate to know somebodys hard work, and my hard earned money, is ruined. also the tattoo was done on vacation, 8 hrs away, and ive tried contacting the artist but was told hes on vacation. pics of it are on my profile. any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. thanks

Welcome to the forum mate.

Yep it looks like the artist overworked the area, can't do anything until it's fully healed anyway but I wouldn't go back to that guy...

    • @Kurgana There is an interview with Beppe Strambini on this site, and a lot of international guest artists seem to pass through Ink Addiction.  I know Verona is a long ways away from Sicily, though!  Not sure what style you're into, either.  But it sounds like an awesome shop, and one that I'd like to visit.
    • Question about 'what makes a good tattoo'. Traditional tattoos are intentionally quite flat. However, I really like the effect of depth and dimension. However, it would seem that the detail required for this would not hold very well? It requires shadowing, I suppose and quite subtle gradations in shading. How do people feel about 3-D, for instance? I am thinking of an Enid Blyton themed far away tree and was considering a particular artist who does 'illustrative' tattoos - however - I'm looking at the portfolio and noticing that there is not much depth to the images. But does 'depth' really work on skin? I'v only seen online images so I was wondering IRL...
    • Hey, I don't know much about tattoos and need advice.  I have my eyebrows and ribs tattooed. I was told by both tattoo artists that my skin is very unusual and doesn't hold ink well haha. You can let me know if thats a real thing.  I got my ribs tattooed in a couple hours on a road trip (...) and the tattoo is patchy blue, purple, and red(ish) with no black. The artist kinda rushed at the end because he was really pervy and could tell I was getting upset. I'm not sure if I should get it outlined or expand on it or cover it up or what?    Also, I encourage anyone who fills in their eyebrows daily to get them tattooed... I'm so happy with how natural and full they turned out.
