  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Welcome. And yes - pictures, please.
  6. Welcome! Want to share what ya got already?
  7. 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?
  12. This isn't a forum for tattoo artists. We aren't supposed to talk about tattooing or methods. But that sounds unsanitary.

  16. 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?

    Yep. No one's ever going to look at it as close as you are here . . .
  19. That corona is too close to the palm to ever hold ink for a long period and/or have it wear like normal skin.
  20. Pretty normal for a 5 day old tattoo. That and hand skin both heals and wears ink differently than most skin.

    Quit picking it apart. Just moisturize it and enjoy it.

    Let it heal. Three weeks isn't long enough to tell anything. But remember this: It isn't going to look perfect. Tattoos never do.

    Tiny tattoo

    Hi all this is my first little baby tattoo of many, it’s located on my side, the guy who did it made the straight edges very wobbly, so i had it touched up a few months later... there are dark red areas i’ve noticed seem to not blend with the rest of the ink, so you think as the tattoo sets it will adjust? it’s been about three weeks since my touch up, still a shitty little tat after my touch up but i love it lol. i plan to get a much bigger tattoo on my back soon, but want to wait till this one fully heals.

    Hi all, Here is a pic of semi healed. It is still pretty dry. Just wanted to get your thoughts. I don’t know if my mind is still playing tricks on me and I’m over analyzing still. Kind words are appreciated.
