Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

Got this at the space city tattoo expo over the weekend. My artist is Cory Cartwright. I'm in love with it and can't wait for it to heal. I'm healing this one with tegaderm. I'm having a little trouble with it though. I put it on yesterday, it was juicy underneath it when I went to sleep. This evening though, it's all dried up underneath. I can't remember if it is supposed to dry up this soon or not. I've only used it once before on another tattoo. Anyone know if that's normal? I don't see any holes in it. I posted in the aftercare section too, maybe I'll get some answers. Anyway, thanks for looking!

Got some work done a couple weeks ago. Finished up this sailor moon piece since I ended up getting sick right as we were finishing up! Had to do some color packing and the white highlights in a second session. Then she filled that elephant outline with the flowers! I've had the outline for a good 3 or 4 years (when I was a stupid tattood girl) and never knew what to do with it. She had some cute flower drawings and decided to slam those in there!

Also got this shin piece done by Jordyn at Classic Tattoo in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada back in January! 7f3f71111a3c97416f1b77416951419d.jpg79ae1a17b99894e9b85ef301b8807669.jpg6e72ea0a2c8dc88d7779be317d6b3390.jpg

You could always come see me at KA on Thursday. @suburbanxcore :)

I am actually on spring break and if I didn't have my daughter's pre-school Easter egg hunt in the afternoon, I'd actually love to pop up. I haven't been up there since October!

What're you getting from Grez?

Bummer...It would have been a good hang but who can resist an Easter Egg hunt?

The plan is what I'm calling "Hare in Kimono Flying a Dragon Kite" on my left upper arm. All loosely based on some research that I did on the Japanese folklore tale of the Rabbit in the Moon. We'll see what he comes up with! I'm concerned that there's not enough room for the kite but we have other options if needed. :)

I've been thinking both at once, but actually taking a week's vacation immediately afterwards. I'm not sure if even that will be enough . . . 

I got tattooed three times in California while on vacation.  Still had a blast on vacation.  

If you can hack it, why not?

So, I got to spend a few hours yesterday with Jack freakin Rudy at Shanghai Kate's shop. Such a wonderful experience. Jack's a very cool guy and we talked throughout most of the tattoo.  At the end we all agreed that it looks like an old-school Jack Rudy tattoo.

New to the site. Here is my latest. It took 6 hours and 45 minutes but got it all done in one. I think the artist did a great job and initially I was very positive about the piece. I really like some of the shaded area in the middle but am trying to warm up to the wings as they contrast a lot with my arm tattoos. I may even go back eventually to have less blank space between the feathers on the wings.

I have a new little friend! Snake and cherry blossoms by Chris Garver. My homage to spring. She fits the space so perfectly. He drew it on, made the stencil and we were tattooing in less than 40 minutes. Boom. (I'm swollen AF but whatever).

    • Hey there everyone, I have the same feeling and I don't know what to do. I love the design and how it looks on my body, but sometimes I get this anxiety and the permanency of tattoo makes it only worse. You can't really take it off haha. But what's weird is that it's been let's say a month and a half now. At first, I loved it and it felt like a dream came true, everyone was complementing my tattoo, I was embracing it, etc. But then I started to notice like different things about my tattoo that I guess I would do differently. It's also my first one, forearm piece and quite big (at least for me). Since then I have mixed feelings that sometimes just give me anxiety that I can't cope with. It gets to the point where I can't think about anything else, and Google tattoo removals, but then there are days where I want more tattoos. But it scares me because what if I will never learn how to love them all. And the thought of it being on my body for my whole life scares me lol.
    • That doesn't particularly look like those spots relate to where white highlight ink would have been placed, at least from this vantage point here . . . 
    • Ended up going with a mandala over the knee.  Did the skin rip along the bottom because my other piece came up too high to allow for the full circle.
