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.

    • Thank you cyoonit! I have bad body dysmorphia as well and so it’s hard for me to see reality sometimes. I’m working on it but I’ve been that way my whole life. My idea I proposed to the artist was a monmon cat but instead of a cat, a hedgehog. It’s what I had named my deceased hedgehog after. I’ve just had people come ask me to post my tattoo on reddit for bad tattoos and for Twitter and it really hurt my feelings. I’ll post my inspiration pics. I liked aspects of all of them. But I’m gonna let it heal up for a month or two and if I don’t like it still I’ll contact for a cover up/correction. I’m moving to Philadelphia in July and I might be able to contact artists there. Maybe adding gray in the body? Hard to say.  Unfortunately I didn’t take a pic of the drawing I had been shown. Maybe without the shading it looked better to me. I don’t know. My husband says it looks fine. But I just keep seeing the face looking wrong to me. 
    • I tried googling hedgehog tattoos in japanese style and there wasnt any helpful pictures so i have no basis at what that is "supposed" to look like.  With that being said, i'm curious to see what the drawing itself looked like. The second picture angle makes it look perfectly fine. If it's way too far off from the drawing and you're that unhappy with it, I would go talk to the artist about it. But if it's in your artist's style and looks similar to the concept drawing, sorry to say there's nothing that you really can do other than to look into lasering/coverups way down the line. I would let it heal completely first and see where to go from there? You might be judging your own tattoo a bit too much, but I only say this because i'm not sure what the concept was supposed to look like.  Keep your head up and good luck!
