    I follow Karviniya's work as I like her style and talent, but something tells me this one is fodder for the laser: (from her Instagram) https://instagram.com/p/BjRxN-AAoe9/
  • Hello! Help appreciated
    Hi my name's Sophia nice to meet you all! I wanted to get some opinions or feedback on a recent tattoo I got. It's on my right thigh for reference. I followed proper aftercare but it still did not heal how I wanted. Its a black tattoo (will include a pic at bottom) but as its healed its become super patchy. It scabbed pretty thinly but when scabs came over at the end of the second ish week into the third, I could see my skin underneath almost like glassy.  I washed it 3 times a day with a mild fragrance free soap and applied a thin layer of Tattoo Goo over top. I religiously avoided sun maybe going outside once a week. I let it breathe and never scratched it. None of the scabs seemed to have gotten ripped off they only fell off easily whilst the tattoo was being washed.  Could this just be how my skin reacted to ink? )-: I have another black one that did NOT do this with same aftercare. This tattoo artist is pretty good in my opinion seen a couple healed tats that look good. This tattoo costed 600$ and I'm hoping I'll be able to get a touch up from my artist but I've yet to get an email back after sending her pics and basically this text.  Any help appreciated thanks

    Is my tattoo starting to blowout or scab? Got it done 3 days ago. Please help! 3

    This is my first tattoo. When the tattoo artist placed the outline on me it looked straight but now when I look at it, it clearly goes downhill depending on how I am standing. I was wondering if there was something I could add under it to either make an illusion or make it look straighter.  Thanks.  3

    How to finish - collection vs. sleeve?
    I have most of my upper arm done with tattoos that have the same theme, but not much to do with each other stylistically. I have the Tomas Garcia dots (color tribalism?) topping off my shoulder, but I still have gaps, and I still want to "finish" it into a "half sleeve" even though it isn't composed as one. There is one more spot that's palm sized on my inner bicep, and a lot of fill in stuff. Should I have one artist do the last spot plus the fill in? How does this usually go?  3
