    • Hey, thanks for the note.  Sorry for the delay - I just saw your reply. I’m looking at doing a half sleeve floral design black and gray.  No deep meaning, I just think it looks cool, is relatively timeless and “organic”.  My biggest concern is coming up with a design that doesn’t look too feminine.  It’s not exactly easy to cover up or laser a half sleeve! I met with a local artist... her work looks good, but she really rushed me a long and just seemed annoyed with every question I had... really annoyed with the whole conversation.  The design had great detail and probably would have looked good on someone - just wasn’t the style I was going for and communicating that to her would have been a very painful process, so I moved on. I also tried one of the online tattoo design sites just to have them take my concept from words to paper and further refine it.  Let me tell ya, that has been a very special process and likely a quick $114 down the drain.  Hah!  Here are a few inspiration photos... I’m thinking more negative space and not filling the background with ink.  Love shading and detail as well. I would love any thoughts or other inspiration photos that may help me along! In the meantime, I’m on a wait list waiting to get a virtual consult with an artist at the best shop in Minneapolis... will probably take at least a few weeks just to talk with him online.
    • It takes 4 - 6 weeks to heal a tattoo. Don't overthink it. You know that rough/dry patches are NORMAL during the healing process, right?
    • As @scottyg said, that location is difficult to heal. Just keep it clean and let it heal. That's what I did for both of my arm ditches.
