  1. Past hour
  2. I live in Montreal. The tattoo artist I consulted said it would be impossible to cover with another tattoo but that she could make them black and grey at least. Unfortunately, I researched that and most people say that that’s impossible.
  3. Today
  4. my wife and myself have back to back appointments with Oliver Peck at the Feather Falls convention at the end of February. we have been on an "american traditional" binge lately, and we have been tattooed at conventions with back to back appointments a few times now and I totally love doing that with her. I am getting a horse shoe with a couple flowers on my left knee ditch,and my wife is getting a sea turtle to add to the octopus and mermaid Oliver did on her leg.
  5. very nice ! I am running out of room and have been considering my feet.
  6. First tattoo in years (since my Kore Flatmo sleeve), Namakubi on my foot by Kurt Wiscombe. I hate getting my feet tattooed!
  7. Yesterday
  8. New frog from the annual Sailor Jerry Day party at Leviticus Tattoo in Minneapolis. Done by thomas_titus. Koi in the background done by Flip McCoy at Steve's Tattoo in Madison about two months ago.
  9. Those are both light enough to cover pretty easily, especially the cat. The real question is what/who you want to do the job - and will their style/outcome prompt the question of lightening them even more with a couple of sessions of laser. All of that would have to be answered by the tattooist in question. Maybe we could provide you some options, but where do you live?
  10. Last week
  11. Sure thing. The reason I joined this forum is actually because I wanna find something to cover both of these up completely, or at the very least make them look less like an ed Hardy shirt. Please let me know if you have any ideas. I like anything with florals or Ancient Roman/Greek themed but I’m open to other styles too.
  12. I have recently started seeing these in the black ink on some of my tattoos but only the ones I’ve had in the last 4-5 years. Any older than that have no issues. And an exception to one on my foot that I’ve had in the last few years that isn’t bothered. It’s mainly one big one I have on my arm that has lots of colors but they are only in the black ink. They don’t look like pimples, can’t be popped, and their size hasn’t changed since I’ve noticed them. Sometimes, they itch but not often. I’ve been thinking of seeing my dermatologist about it because I’m not done getting tattoos lol.
  13. Don't get her wrong. Tattoo artists are welcome here and many have provided loads of insight in the past. However, the guidelines state: "Do not start threads asking about specific tattooing equipment or techniques, LST is not here to teach anyone how to tattoo. Ask your own tattooer, the next time you are getting tattooed. Maybe they'll answer you, maybe they won't." That said, if i saw that kind of practice, i'd never go back to that shop again and i'd advise everyone i know to do the same.
  14. Welcome. And yes - pictures, please.
  15. Welcome! Want to share what ya got already?
  16. I’m Mike and like all of you, I love body art. I’m joining this forum to get some ideas on how to build on what I already have and help you guys out too :)

    Nice! Yeah I'd get that finished up, then you can re-analyze how you feel about it. I bet you just need a little more time to get used to things, be proud of what you've got!

    It looks cool to me; do you still have more work pending on it, or is it completed now?
  20. This isn't a forum for tattoo artists. We aren't supposed to talk about tattooing or methods. But that sounds unsanitary.

  24. I'm a professional tattooer, work in a shop, licensed, etc. and Im seeing so many tattooers, many with years more experience than I, using metal cartridge grips and simply wiping them down with Cavicide between clients. Am I missing something or is this totally unacceptable? How far do Cavicide wipes actually go?
