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

    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.  
    • Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tattoos have not reacted this way but I’m wondering if maybe because it’s in my arm? And the stinging feeling feels like sun burnish, but only on the bottom one. Does anyone have any advice for me??!
