    I’d suggest you do it legally. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I don’t know Canada’s visa situation, but do your research. It’ll be a big waste to fly over and only to be turned around and sent home. 
  • New / Guesting abroad and customs
    Hi guys, (posting in this section as I can’t post in any other it seems) I have a guest spot in Canada all planned for next year, I’ll be going over from the UK. I just want to know what other artists usually do with getting through customs etc, as I know if they have a slight inkling that I’ll be working over there they’ll probably send me straight back home.  Ive been told about mailing over my tattoo supplies beforehand, but that also sometimes that gets denied when checked out by customs, and sent back.  I’m absolutely stumped with how to go about this, and am thinking of cancelling entirely and just having a holiday instead haha, as tickets are already bought and I don’t want to risk losing out on even being let into the country.    Thanks for any help!

    Classic image to go with baby name!
    Hey all!  Im booked in at the family business on Wednesday and before I message the artist telling him what I want, I thought I’d see what everyone’s favourite images are, that would go nicely with my daughters name in a banner...  I’m after something bigger than just a heart or something! I have my favourites, but would like to hear yours!  Cherrs everyone!  3

    New with tattoo regret
    Hey I'm Abbey... First of all, I'm excited to have found such a nice tattoo community. I got a tattoo about 3 weeks ago and, although I think it's a really nice tattoo, it's not what I wanted. I was so excited about getting it that I failed to mention the fact that I wanted line work ONLY and no B/W shading (basically just wanted their outlines against my skin). She asked if I wanted black and white and I just blurted out a simple "yes" (thinking she knew what was on my mind) and let her move forward. I didn't look down for a while at what she was doing (talking excitedly to my husband) and by the time I had it was too late... she'd already shaded in the eyes and some parts of their bodies. I feel like such an idiot for just assuming she knew what I wanted. Anyway, here I am with a question. I was thinking about filling in the shaded areas on the bodies of the mice and in the eyes with a skin tone color to kind of give the appearance of my skin only and the line work and nothing else. Is this a ridiculous idea? Is there anything I can do to lighten the shading? Should I just accept it and move on? Any input is greatly appreciated. And again, I do think this artist did a really nice job... I just don't think the tattoo is ME, and at the moment it's just pissing me off because I didn't speak up. ***Pictures below (kind of blurry - sorry)   Side note - The artist who originally drew the mice is Teagan White (she kindly allows the replication of her work for tattoos as long as you donate to one of the charities she's posted on her website). 3

    My Tattoo Collection need input
    So I have five tattoos. Same artist. I am a fan of his work. This last tattoo (sun wave) was on my right shoulder. Most visible one yet. Unfortunately I am not in love with it like the rest of mine. I am having moments of regret I must say. I feel it needs something and was thinking maybe colored flowers to give it a pop. Thoughts? What do you think would complete it? Thanks!     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk   3
