  1. Today
  2. it's a cool tattoo, enjoy it,show it off, and wear it with pride.
  3. That's a tattoo btw. I was thinking on turning it into half a sleeve maybe or some kind of background. But these mixed feelings make me depressed
  4. Thanks friend. Really trying my best but it's like I can't even focus on anything else. I think that the fact that it's on my forearm doesn't help because I always stare at it
  5. take a breath and relax, it will pass, and start planning your next tattoo.
  6. Hey there everyone, I have the same feeling and I don't know what to do. I love the design and how it looks on my body, but sometimes I get this anxiety and the permanency of tattoo makes it only worse. You can't really take it off haha. But what's weird is that it's been let's say a month and a half now. At first, I loved it and it felt like a dream came true, everyone was complementing my tattoo, I was embracing it, etc. But then I started to notice like different things about my tattoo that I guess I would do differently. It's also my first one, forearm piece and quite big (at least for me). Since then I have mixed feelings that sometimes just give me anxiety that I can't cope with. It gets to the point where I can't think about anything else, and Google tattoo removals, but then there are days where I want more tattoos. But it scares me because what if I will never learn how to love them all. And the thought of it being on my body for my whole life scares me lol.
  7. Yesterday
  8. That doesn't particularly look like those spots relate to where white highlight ink would have been placed, at least from this vantage point here . . .
  9. Ended up going with a mandala over the knee. Did the skin rip along the bottom because my other piece came up too high to allow for the full circle.
  10. Last week
  11. That looks you have some rash or skin condition. Go see your doctor. We aren't doctors here, and we can't diagnose anything.
  12. Hello, new to the forum, I had some questions about white ink. I got a black and grey half sleeve in 2 sessions last year. September and December. I got some white highlights that have seemed to never heal properly. Some spots are red and raised, while others are normal looking. It's been 6 months since my second session and I still have raised spots. Is this normal? I went back to the shop after my first session and they were like yeah that's fine, nothing to worry about. I've included some pictures. Thanks for any input!

    hi

    A picture or two would help us provide the realistic possibilities . . .

    hi

    It depends. If it's a big dark, poorly done tattoo, it might be hard. If it's a small, light, faded tattoo, it will be a lot easier. Make sure you get someone really experienced with coverups. Look at samples of their work. I've seen coverups that were worse than the original. I was getting tattooed one day and this woman comes in with one of the most amateurish, God awful tattoos I've ever seen. It was a cover up. After she was gone my artist looks at me and said, "That looks like Arnold Schwartzenager climbing out of a tar pit."

    hi

    find the right artist that likes doing coverups & is good at it, they could do just fine, what you have to do is a lot of research to find the right person, I have a couple coverups that are perfect.

    hi

    i do have a question. how difficult is it to get a tattoo over another tattoo? i got one when i was about 18 and looking at it i think its not really a good one. I mean its well done its just dumb for me and i did not think it through enough. If i want to add something to cover/change it.

    hi

    Hello! and if you've got initial questions you can do that here, too.
  18. My artist's shop reopened with one person at a time and only two artists working. Everyone wears masks, and they can only get in a couple of scheduled tattoos a day (no walk-ins). Got this yesterday. My artist and I both love John Prine.
  19. They are tattoos, an should reflect the individual and their artists. So, just like color and style, size will vary by individual.
  20. It may be a disappointment, but I would look for another artist.

    hi

    hi I am new to the forum. this is the only forum I can post in. I am guessing that its ment to be that way for whatever reason. So hello.
  23. Thanks for the feedback everyone. Appreciate it.
  24. In terms of tattoo collecting, I have always naturally broken up the body into body part panels . So I end up thinking in medium size pieces mostly. In my brain, The only ‘panel’ that is a foregone ‘giant’ piece is the back piece.
