How's it going?

Hey, thought I'd pop in and say hi!

I've been lurking for a bit now and I really like the people & tattoos everyone seems to share, so I thought I'd join the crowd.

I used to try to justify getting tattoos to family members, they never quite understood it.

I'm pretty intrigued by tattoos, but I've only got one very simple tattoo that means the world to me at the moment, but my plan is to eventually implement it into an entire sleeve. That's the plan, anyway. I just can't seem to find anyone willing to come up with concept art for me, so I guess I'm kind of SOL haha. It's one of those things where you owe your life to something, and ironically, I owe my life to video games. Probably would have ended up killing myself if I hadn't had a way to express myself other than to play games. I grew up with old-style games, arcades, etc. I actually work in an arcade now.

WELL! That was my quick introduction, so here's where my current tattoo stands. Trying to find someone who's a skilled enough artist to come up with a design for my next addition, but it's proving to be difficult...

(Sorry for the bad picture)

Thanks for the introduction and welcome.

I'm sure some LSTers will have ideas of tattooers and shops to go talk to around the PA area when you're ready.

I'm a big pinball fan and a lil over a month ago my brother took me to a pinball museum here in the east bay which was pretty amazing.....four rooms filled wall to wall with pinball machines. What pinball machines are at your arcade?

Whatever you decide to do with the sleeve, you should get an artist to keep it looking like pixel art. I feel like that would look amazing. It would probably be quite a challenge to the artist, having to do little squares for edges instead of lines, but it would look badass.

My all-time favorite pinball machine in the arcade is the Hercules Atari pinball machine. Great thing, it is.

We don't have all that many, maybe 6-7? Not quite sure. They're pretty old and beat up, sadly.. It's a bit amazing how they keep working after such a long time though :o

I was hoping to blend old-era with new-era somehow. Possibly go with pixel art with a pixelated transition over to new-era games, but I like your idea as well haha.

    • Hi all, I am new in this industry and i would like to know if there is any platform only for professionals to find guest spots, long term work etc... even for tattoo owners studios to publish job offers for artists. I would like to fins a platform like Linkedin but only for tattoos professionals. HOnestly i do not like to use instagram or facebook for professional stuff and for example tattoodo is more to find clients not offers to work in studios or offers jobs if i am a owner.   Said that i really appreciate you support on it.   Thanks in advance and apologies if i make a mistake on where to posrt my concern   Best, John
    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.
