    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

    I am Back
    When I joined Last Sparrow years back I was an Apprentice at a shop. I survived that lol but my Mentor did not he passed away, after that I opened my own shop. It is doing really well. Why I have not be login it is that I have been redirected to spam sights when trying to find Last Sparrow. I thought the sight was dead. The main reason I am back is because I have beed painting a lot lately and was wondering what you guys use on and what works for you - paper, paint, markers, ect. Tommy Phillips Noble Street Tattoo 3

    Acne Tattooing
    Hello all, I need some advice. I've had bad acne on my back when I was younger and still have problems with. The scarring brings my confidence way down and I never take my shirt off cause of it. I was wondering if there are special tattoo shops that deal with covering up the scars or how would I go about doing that. Guess I'm worried about being judged too much cause of it and don't want the artist to be sitting there looking at me in disgust. That's for any and all help. 3
