    my wife and myself went to high school together,we dated for a little while back then(1976/77),we were the same age and same grade, we graduated and didn't see each other for 28 years,we  both ended up single(we both went through a marriage/divorce) and a mutual friend that knew I was always hot for her mentioned he saw her at a party,anyway,fast forward to 2005,we got together and got married. the reason for this post though is this,tomorrow night(10/20) we are going to our 41st HS reunion.(we didn't have a 40th)   we graduated in 77 should be a kick. us then and now

    Yeah, try and keep it covered - at 3 days old you don't want to get it dragging through someone else's dance floor sweat.

    Going clubbing with new tattoo
    Hello! I got my first tattoo on Wednesday evening, and i plan to go clubbing on Saturday night, so over 72h after the session. Still, I'm not 100% sure if it is a good idea, especially because my tattoo artist told me not to cover it after the second day, and I'm kind of worried about going out with it uncovered and exposed. Can you tell me if it's safe to do it? And if i should cover it for the night?    Also, sorry if I'm not using the forum right, I'm not an english speaker and I may have misunderstood it. Anyway, thanks in advance for your help !! 3

    Please improve my new tattoo!!
    Hi guys! Recently got a tattoo of an angel on my rib. I think my expectations did not come across clearly to the artist, and the tattoo ended up looking a bit more cartoonish than realistic imho. However,  1) Are there things that can be improved about the existing tattoo? e.g. the angel's body, the wing, the woman etc? 2) Am thinking of filling up my whole rib as a result of the tattoo in order to make it look more like a greek painting e.g. blob:https://web.whatsapp.com/b4240b86-2a70-41b5-9054-ef51309dbe93 With the rest of the space on my ribs in picture, what are your ideas for things I can add to make it seem more aesthetic? I was thinking maybe some clouds and sunrays, a second wing etc.   Please, please do offer me your input guys! I just want a piece im happy to carry with my whole life - quite far from it as of now!     3

    Advice on a badly executed tattoo
    So last week I got my second tattoo, and apparently my artist did not understand what I wanted at all, despite showing her reference photos and the style of my first tattoo. I wanted some violets in a very abstract, watercolor style. The first 5 photos were my references (first two for the fade style, next three for the water color/abstractness), the sixth is my first tattoo (that I love), and the last two are my new tattoo. Turns out, I absolutely hate what I ended up with. Like, have to take my glasses off to clean it, hate it. One way or another, it has to go. Is there any possibility a cover up or rework of it could even work? It's a lot bulkier than I wanted originally, so I'm kind of inclined to think it couldn't without being much, much bigger than I want. I'm tempted to just call it a complete loss and start researching tattoo removal, but I wanted to check if there's any chance to save it first.  Thank you in advance, I would really appreciate any thoughts you might have. P.S. Also, I know it's technically a beautiful piece of work, I'm not criticizing the quality of the piece out of context. It's just very much not the style I wanted or like for myself. 3
