I'm a tattooer at Sacred Art Tattoo & Piercing in Smithfield, NC and I'm my own worst critic. I started tattooing in 04 I believe. I had the typical apprenticeship where I did a lot and didn't learn as much as I wanted too when I was 19. Finished that and kept learning by asking questions to anyone that would listen and answer pretty much. I've also picked up a couple of DVDs and books along the way from Kingpin, Luckys and Infinite Irons I believe. I hope I never stop learning. I took some time off at the end of 06 to finish college and started back in the beginning of 08 and then another year off from early 09 to late 09 to be a stay at home daddy. Also, my dad pasted away in Dec. of 08, so my head wasn't in it very well. I got a great opportunity to work were I'm at now and I haven't looked back. It seems like I get better everyday, you know. And I guess when you surround yourself with good people, it helps out. Since I started at Sacred Art, I've gotten in to building machines. Well assembling machines, lol. I like to Frankenstein stuff. I haven't gotten into the coil winding and frame welding yet for lack of a place to do it. It's coming though. I have an old S&R frame that I'm going to "re-purpose" soon. I also just recently gotten into painting.

Oh wow, I just looked back at all I was typing and there's a lot so I guess I'll stop there. Like I said before, I'm looking forward to meeting some cool folks and learning some more while I'm here. Thanks for the welcome man.

Later,

Jamey

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
