  1. Today
  2. Thanks for the feedback everyone. Appreciate it.
  3. 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.

    This is the only thing it would let me click...
  7. Yesterday
  8. I always use a zinc based sunscreen which is the best for protection. But it’s also the greyest, thickest balm. Gets on everything like the op described. So now I wear golfing sleeves whenever I’m commuting or taking any kind of prolonged solar beat down on my arms. They’re really comfortable actually. Just google golf sleeves.

  10. maybe a zoom or skype consult would work ? or maybe go to somebody else ?
  11. no I can't say that I have, pre-tattoo consultations have always been an important part of the process IMO, and yes, I for feel a consultation is a very necessary parts of the process, for the us customers AND the tattooer that's going to do the work. I think you paid all the proper respects already in what you said in your post here. ". I made it clear that I didn’t want to guide the process or throw in a laundry list or requests, rather just want to spend a few minutes hearing the artist’s view for the piece" that's perfect IMO
  12. Hmmmm. No. My history in that situation was at least e-mail correspondence.
  13. Hi all, longtime reader, first time poster. Happy to be actually taking part in the forum! Had a question about appointment protocol. I managed to get on the list of a well known artist who I’ve been dying to get work from for years. I’ve been working with the shop manager (who is wonderful), but for some reason I’m not able to discuss the piece with the artist before paying for and traveling for my first appointment. I made it clear that I didn’t want to guide the process or throw in a laundry list or requests, rather just want to spend a few minutes hearing the artist’s view for the piece. I offered to pay for the time, as well, but no luck. Feels strange to commit to a giant projexr without even a 5 minute conversation. Anyone else ever bump into this?
  14. Looks cool. I guess you could lazer the letters away...if you’re determined. But it looks cool to me.
  15. Looks really cool. Can’t wait to see it done.
  16. Take your antibiotics, man. All of them!
  17. Yep, no problem. And your linework looks really good, too!
  18. I can't say that as a horribly bored teenager I wouldn't have been drawn into such an endeavor. Glad I'm an older and more patient person now.
  19. Taking them won't cause a problem, but not taking them could. Strep is not a joke, it can be a serious illness.
  20. I don't see how that would be a problem for the tattoo
  21. Earlier
  22. Hi all, happy to join! Got third tat, largest yet, that is 1/3 done. All going well there. HOWEVER, I woke up today, 2 days after my tat, with a sore throat. Doc noticed some white spots on my throat and thinks it might be strep. Would taking antibiotics so soon into after care be a problem? This isn't life or death. I don't have a fever or any pain. Just irritation when I swallow.
  23. I guess someone had to make up “news” to meet a deadline.
  24. If I happened to read that on someone- as an employee. socially, whatever- I would 100% interpret it as a general motto not some kind of needed reminder because otherwise you would be bad. It's possibly the most benign, least offensive words possible on a tattoo. I ❤️Mom is edgier and more controversial. Tattoo looks good. If you are taking votes mine is to not change it.
  25. Thanks. Since I got my first tattoo on this arm at 222, I thought it was super cool when I got the chance to have Eddy Deutsche do the last two tattoos to finish the sleeve. Ended up being like bookends on a story. That's why I kind of hit the gas and did two session in Dec, just because I was able to get in. Didn't want to miss the chance. Also, it was an elbow and a weird gap fill that I tasked him with. I really wanted a master level person, just because I had no idea how to fill 2 such weird spaces. So, when I was able to book with Eddy, it was perfect.
