  • Change tattoo design 3 weeks before appointment
    Hi, I've got an appointment in 3 weeks time but I've been having thoughts about changing the design. I thought I was dead set on what I wanted but then I wasn't sure about size and placement as I thought I wanted it smaller but my initial design wouldn't look great smaller. I've just thought of another design that would work smaller. Also as this is a tattoo for my son I feel this new design is more indicative of our bond so I want to feel completely happy on a personal level that I choose
  • Started my sleeve. What would look good next?
    Thanks man! I like the idea of an engine actually and it would fit really well with the cog theme. As my plan is to do 1 nature piece followed by something manmade, I'll probably do a rose/set of flowers into an engine below. Also gonna go back on Wednesday to get the lion eye shaded in blue, which I think would look quite cool

    Started my sleeve. What would look good next?
    Hi all,  I just had my first big piece done and and am overall happy with the result. I went for a manmade vs nature theme.  My only question is how do you think I should continue the sleeve? I was thinking a rose or another animal. Would it fit in with the cog above? If not, What other designs would you consider that would fluidly continue the sleeve? I definitely want more detail in the rest of it though. 3

    These online forums are so stupid and I can't find a single place to simply ask a question without having to jump through all these hurdles or get "karma" like on reddit so I'll just ask this question here and hopefully someone can answer it. I have about 10 tattoos but I'm getting a full arm sleeve designed for the first time. I did some research on local parlors and found an artist that specializes in realistic grayscale animals/plants and that sort of thing. We had a couple consultations wher3

    Hey guys this is my first time here and I'd like to get a few opinions on the tattoo I got last saturday. It started peeling yesterday and the skin beneath is really pale. I know that's supposed to happen and that tattoos take from 4 to 6 weeks to decently heal but that's my 3rd piece and never before they looked so milky. I just wanted to know if that's normal behavior or if anything's off, like I'm losing too much ink. I'm attaching one picture of the full art and two of the area I'm concerned3
