  • In this thread, we commiserate about healing our fresh tattoos.
    I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.)

    Advice on new tattoo
    Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tat3

    Hi all, I'm new here. I got my first tattoo in Moscow (see below) from a friend of a friend. I'm looking to get a line of poetry from Pushkin on my arm, and I would prefer to someone who speaks Russian so I can talk through why I want that particular phrase. Russian is my third language and I'm rusty. Weird, I know. Anyway, anyone know of an artist in Philadelphia preferably, but I can go to NY too. 3

    Hello! I'm a web developer and I've been looking for ideas for projects. I noticed that a lot of tattoo artists I follow complain that clients aren't really specific when they ask for the cost of a tattoo, asking for it to be 'small' or 'big' without any kind of reference, and how that could be annoying. So I came up with a concept, which is essentially a form that you can send to your client in a link, takes just 2 minutes to complete, and gives you every piece of information you need to3

  • Katie Sellergren Tattoo Artist Interview Video
    Hi; we are invited to watch these videos; and certainly there is something rather special about calligraphy tattoos with wording - often in simple black - in various, ornate possibilities, as Katie S. speaks of, here.

    I think that everything is cool and correctly said, just one more important point, everyone has different fantasies and ideas.  And only a good specialist can give useful advice!  Some people want a kingpin tattoo supply for themselves, but at the same time they do not understand and do not know some of the nuances.  I believe that a good specialist is the one who can give advice and recommendations to the client.  Then you will definitely be satisfied with the result.
