Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

I got started on a new dragon tattoo myself.

This is eventually going to be an entire sleeve. So far I’ve had one two hour session. He drew it on during the first hour and tattooed the second hour. Next session is in a few days.

Work being done by Andrew Labanaris at Iron Hand Tattoo.

Just got in from a session. We did about 2 1/2 hours. Got just about the entire sleeve’s line work complete. Still a little more to do on the inner arm, which I’m not looking forward to!!
I’ll post some pics in a few days when it isn’t so raw.

@AtomicMagpye I had my right knee colored in last Thursday (the line work was done last October). At this point, my left knee cap can stay empty forever!

I was ok with my knees,it is that dam knee ditch and inner thighs that got me.

Utmost respect to both of you - mine was mostly around the knee and not directly over 🙂 -  ...  

somewhat interestingly I think I'm going for a piece next that will mean I have the joys of the knee ditch...  and then after that inner thigh - marvellous 🙂

Vice versa for me! Inner thigh and knee ditch were absolutely a tolerable. 🙂 @Dan

I got this one last week from Lukas Speich at XXX Tattoo in Lucerne, Switzerland.

I stole the idea from a story that Yoni Zilber retold from Bill Salmon, in a Podcast... there was a dude who saw someone's tattoo and said, "That's a pretty cool tattoo. I got a tattoo also, but mine's a little cooler." He showed the tattoo and there it was... a little cooler. 😉😉 

I chose the classic Igloo Playmate, but the wording was too small to tattoo. So, I asked Lukas to add a little Swiss flag and he went with a red cross. It's kinda funny to me, as it now looks like it could be used to transport an organ donation.

    • I've personally thought of going to Japan to get a tebori tattoo and stumbled upon the Pacific Tattoo Company website mentioned in this article. Was wondering if anyone had arranged for a tattoo holiday with Pacific Tattoo Company. Would appreciate some input from those who have successfully done so.
    • I believe the concern about swimming with a new tattoo is not about spreading diseases or germs to other people as it is about what it could do to your new tattoo. From what I understand, It is generally advisable to avoid baths, overly long showers or swimming to prevent the tattoo from becoming soaked and to protect it from bacteria and what-not from infecting the new tattoo since it is essentially an open wound. Strong chemicals and chlorine in the water can also irritate the new tattoo and interfere with the healing process. Other than avoiding the pool until your new tattoo is completely healed, you may want to monitor it for any signs of infection. Elsewise, just wait for it to heal.
    • It's not an ink stain. As @scottyg mentioned, tattooing creates an open wound. In the course of the healing process, a scab forms, much like it does for any other wound. This scab will usually be the same colour as the ink. As the healing process progresses, it gradually flakes off. Scabbing usually takes place within 2-3 days but the peeling/flaking off part can take 2-3 weeks or even longer depending on a whole lot of variables. Just keep it dry and clean and try not to scratch, peel or pull off the scabs or flaking bits. If it gets too dry, a little unscented moisturiser should help to prevent it from cracking. But you should seriously follow the advice of your tattoo artist with regards to aftercare.
