Is there a full moon?  Between people wanting others to provide free artwork to wanting us to pay for their tattoos it's been interesting the past week.

By the way, would someone please draw up my idea for the right upper arm design? I'll also be posting my PayPal account so you can all send me money. You know I need the money for my work more than you do. Don't be cheap!!   :10_wink:

I want to show that go fund me page to my kids as a lesson on what not to do in life. Begging people to pay for luxury items... I can't even....

if I were either of their parents..... I'd be so steaming mad.

Well, not getting new ink but.... going by for a test-the-water consult this afternoon on getting this abortion on my right arm lightened enough to have it re-done properly.

Oh, and I'll pay for it all myself, thanks.

I'm very curious to hear about your consult. @pidjones

Well. That was a no-go.

They do not have picosure laser (even though they prominently advertise it). They want about five times what Mike Panic has mentioned for a session on my ~3" (at the widest) by 8" area. They can't concentrate on one area over another at all. Or won't. They listed a lot of pain and severe blistering as common (no mention of topicals or even cooling) and when I said that intense pain causes me to black out, they said it was because I wasn't getting enough oxygen. I carefully exited and will not be back there. Only two other places in the area. Neither even advertises picosure. Mike, put in a shop closer!

    • Yeah, I have heard that as well. Tattoo laser removal definitely isn't something you'd want to do, I'd say it's one of the absolute last things you'd wanna do, actually. From what I've heard (no direct experience), the pain of the laser just doesn't compare to tattoo pain as it's on a whole 'nother level, it takes multiple sessions for the tattoo to really fade and because of how incredibly tough it is on your skin you need an interval of at least one month in-between sessions. That, and the thousands of dollars it can add up to...  My artist told me that she has advised customers to get one or two laser sessions done before cover-ups only a very few handful of times because of all the above cons to lasering, and even with them she suggested no more than one or two sessions just to extremely dark tattoos to lighten the slightest bit so it would be easier to then cover up - to get tattoo lines to fade "wholly" not infrequently takes years and like others already said, would still be visible anyway. 😅
    • I’m assuming. Definitely not an artist myself but I know scar tissue is permanent and once it’s there, there’s never erasing it. I’ve heard laser also hurts more than having the tattoo done itself sooo I’m not sure I’d personally be keen on that 😂
    • Thanks guys I’ll try to respond to this thread once it’s done 👍 (July 10th)
