It's been a good while since I posted on here so here are a few bits I've had over the last year or two, there are more but these are the only ones that I have pics to hand.

Here’s my progress so far on my sleeve from Bobby Cupparo @ LOVEMACHINE N.Y.C.

We’re about 25 hours in so far - I think we’ve roughly got about that left before the project is finished. I had (and have) ink fallout from black inks so my blacks usually need some touching up. 

The lionness was the first piece of the sleeve to be worked on, and was recently worked on this past Saturday. The mandrill is a few months finished at this point. Everything usually gets touched up a slight bit going into each session to address problem areas.

I’m absolutely crazy for the detail on the ear and wanted to include a pic!

Very nice! Not sure I'll ever be brave enough to get a elbow/knee/etc.

you know,I have both elbows,both knees,both shins,and all my fingers tattooed,

and honestly they were all not too bad.

bony areas were ok for me,I have trouble with soft fleshy spots.

I’m the opposite. Both of my elbows and my boney feet were brutal.

Much less anxious of those than their associated ditches. But ( realizing I have one elbow ditch tattooed) Knee ditch actually scares me. 

I have both ditches done. It hurt, but not as badly as the elbows. It’s so boney!

Not really a new tattoo but I got a call from the shop that did my tattoos. They are having a professional photographer come in to shoot some of the artists favorite pieces and the artist who did mine choose one of mine as one of his favorites that he wanted shot. Thought that was pretty sweet. I’m guessing it’s the clipper ship but I’m not sure.

Those tattoos are gorgeous, as always.  Penny you have such great taste and your ideas always look like they come right out of the artists classic playbook, even when its an original idea.

    • That’s interesting. Yeah, I am interested in the nano level as well. 
    • Hello there  - I've been doing a bit of reading around the latest research on how tattoos are maintained  - specifically the action of macrophage pigment take up - and how over time the macrophages essentially drop the pigment and there is then a re-uptake by replacement macrophages.  Macrophages are involved in various stuff around immune response and (although I haven't found any direct research on this) I would be interested to find out how many people have "allergic" reactions months or years after initial tattoo. It is possible that an individual's immune response changes over time - and at the time of macrophage re-take up (months or years after the initial tattoo) there is a difference in response (however this is just guesswork on my part at this point).  Would be great to see more research on this - but I can't find any directly related to tattoos. Ive probably pasted this before - but here it is again - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/03/180306101708.htm
    • I’ve had the same artist complete all four of my tattoos. All are fairly large works. I love her work and it suits me perfectly. The most recent piece was done last week. We collaborated on a design and I approved the final piece. When I got home from the session, however, I noticed that an element of the design was missing – a perfectly innocent mistake, and something that could just be added at another session. I emailed the artist to tell her this and offered to pay for another session. I’ve gotten the silent treatment (no response) and cannot escape the feeling that I’ve somehow upset or offended her. My email to her had no criticism or accusation of any kind – I missed something in the original design and she missed it when doing the tattoo. I’ll happily pay to have it remedied but now she’s not responding. Did I trip up here? Should I have approached it another way? Is there a protocol for asking an artist to make some changes/additions to her own work? Like I said, I’ve worked with her many times before, paid promptly, tipped generously, recommended her to others – I’m a good client. But it feels like I messed up somehow. I want to make it right. Suggestions?
