Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

One ambulance made last week by Fabien Lejeune (Rapid needle movement) at Longwy (France).

This is the first tattoo of my left leg (area under the knee level only) where I intend to make 5-6 tattoo, all in relation with music songs or video clips from UK band named "TheProdigy".

The ambulance is referring to "Take me to the hospital". I intend to also tattoo the song name beside.

I choose an US model of ambulance because your vehicule are really rock !!!! No comparison with our belgian ambulance which has "no style"

ha ha good stuff... I have also the ant tattoed beside my ankle... I didn't include it into my gallery as the tattoo is 17 years old and I need to refresh it... this ant tattoo made 17 years ago is the trigger point of my future tattoo projects on the left leg.

Prodigy is playing on concert in my neighbourhood in August so I have already my ticket :p

Fully healed from Anderson Luna @ Saved tattoo NYC . Will most likely add to it on this years NYC visit ;) Also posted in the lady head thread.

I can see Anderson adding from the neck down. His ornamental work is fantastic.

No worries, got a few cover ups thrown in aswell that still need a little laser work between each piece but I love it.

Got my koi done today finally. We didn't go all the way around the back this time, the tattooist thought it would be better to wait until I extend it down to the forearm to do that. The colours don't look that great in the photo- irl they are far brighter. Need to take a daytime + healed photo at some point. 7.5 hours.

The sound of my head exploding and dripping grey matter from my ears. I dig the frog! The frog seals it! Yup. Birthday present to self win!!!

Thank you!!

So, as I have mentioned before, Junii usually has some inspiration right before the tattoo and our plans change a bit - now it looks like we're going back to two snakes, no hannya (maybe). And the collab? Oh, just Junii, Shad, and EVERYONE IN DIAMOND CLUB, nbd. !!!!!

At the beginning of the second day, I was looking at some frog paintings my hosts have around their home and vaguely thinking "what a cool tattoo that would be". Headed to the shop. As soon as I get there Junii says "what do you think about this?" and pulls out some frog stencils she made!! As my mind was wrapping itself around this fun bit of synchronicity, she explained that she wanted to put a meditating frog down at the bottom of my leg, and then add some dreamy clouds working their way up so it appears that everything we see is what the frog is sitting and meditating about - we have a beginning now!!

She is going to add a few more frogs, one guy with beads, another one with a coin, maybe another guy. I am so satisfied with how this tattoo is coming along - not just with the quality of the work, but also the completely organic nature of how the tattoo itself is developing. It's really incredible to be part of this experience!! ...searching for more words...I'm just into it, is all. :p

I'm booked again in July...we'll see what she comes up with next!!!!!

I've attached some action shots and one of me being just clearly insanely happy to be where I am. (Thank you for indulging me). Yes @Lance, best birthday present to self ever.

@Zillah the koi looks great!! You are a beast to sit for 7.5 hours - that shit is hard! Congrats and can't wait to see a healed pic.

    • Hello everyone! First of all, I hope I posted in the right topic, everything else was blocked and I am kinda desperate to seek the advices cause' I've seen some interesting topics around here and this forum might bring some light in my case as well, maybe will ease my worries too, who knows. Before I will elaborate my problem, I wanna tell you guys I already have 4 masterpieces all healed up properly by the same artist, so we made the fifth on the chest, later that day I noticed a red line crossing the clavicle just above the tattoo itself. Is very important to mention that he has told me to keep the area covered with foil for about an hour, due to other things I managed to take it down after 4-5 hours, bare in mind that the adhesive tape was attached to the skin all this time. So after a few days the redness has spread (not very prominent yet) and was now surrounding the tattoo just a little outside of where the skin was inked.  I made an initial contact with my artist and he told me that the redness appeared because I kept the adhesive tape for too long which might cause an allergy and it should be back to normal in a couple of days. That made sense to me at the time. The thing is, it hasn't gone back to normal, so after 2 weeks I visited a dermatologist and got diagnosed with contact dermatitis, I got some antibiotics and some ointment based on a steroid, for a while it did make the redness from the clavicle go away, but then redness went a little bit further to shoulder, first days the treatment seemed to be helping but then was suddenly not having any effects. I was supposed to go back to check with them after the treatment, but because I didn't like the way I was treated as a patient to begin with in the first place also the way they spoke to me was rude, having tattoos it was like I have some sort of HIV for them, then instead of looking for solutions I was  being questioned the meaning of every tattoo, yeah they come across very judgmental as F***, pardon my language. So fast forward this Tuesday, I visited a second dermatologist and this time the diagnosis was Dermatitis atopic, they gave me some antibiotics for allergy and some ointment named Elidel based on pimecrolimus. Now I know its only has been 2 days since I took the new treatment, but there has been no change so far and I am worried as hell, as for symptoms, it doesn't itch nor has swollen so far or anything else other than redness and dry skin. I guess Its worth mentioned that I have asthma and I am allergic to some stuffs which I avoid and I used to have all sorts of allergies in the past but with all went away in within daysor a week. Never mind that, I had 4 successful tattoos before, therefore I don't know what is the anomaly here. I did take very good care of it, following the protocol, cleaning with antibacterial soap and still using Bepanthen ointment on it, same thing I did to the previous tattoos. The tattoo was made on 18 october, there has been no improvements in almost a month on my skin and it drives me mad to the point of thinking worst case scenario; like removing it with laser as some cases suggested on the internet, just thinking about this stuff breaks my heart really, so if anyone experienced anything similar I would like to hear your thoughts on the matter or what treatment worked for you. I will attach a photo of the tattoo and its redness around it, I would like to apologize in advance for writing such a long post. PS. The redness is more prominent in real time than in the photo.
    • As SStu said, you can't change it much other than to get some real dark to cover it. It's going to change color more and more anyways so I don't think you should do it especially at such an early point of getting tattoo. I'd wait til it settles more and is fully healed before you become to dislike it. but it doesn't look bad in my eyes! just my 2 cents
    • I think it looks fine like that, if it's a little different than all the other chrysanthemums on other people, isn't that better ?
