Hey guys, I'm james. I'm from panama city, florida. I'm joining to keep a look out for great artists to get tattooed by when I travel. I'm in the medical field and hoping to sign on to a travel co. when I graduate and hopefully pick up some cool pieces along the way. Also, joined to ask about lasering whenever I get my post count up.

Welcome James.Megan & Darren both work in Panama City,and do nice work.

Megan Fernandez

one foot in the grave

I don't know any good laser places in Florida.You could ask Megan or Darren if they know any.I did get some tattoos lasered at www.immortalimagestattoo.com and from Jinx Proof I heard good things about Dallas Tattoo Removal too.

Yea man, I was gonna mention them. Darrens done my right and left arm half sleeves and one on my shin. Shane woodward from the shop where megan used to work did my other shin. I've talked to megan about doing some pieces on the rest of my arm and a possible chest piece. I love her stuff.

My first tattoo was the front of my half sleeve and was done by a guy who doesn't work at that shop anymore, not really my style and his ink was cheap so it faded bad and there's no real depth. Darren reworked a good bit of it when did the underside and connected, but I feel like the only saving it is getting a few spots lasered to make it easier to rework. I learned my lesson quick about being ignorant with the artist.

Yea sure thing, Lochlan. Most of them are posted under the one foot in the grave blog bigjoe posted, but whenever I get home from clinical I'll be sure to get pics up.

I'll most definitely take before and after pics, although it may be a while and I'm still considering my options. It's really not that bad, just something that I always notice. Glad to have found this site, I'm really the only one who's real into tattoos out of my friends (oddly enough) so it'll be nice to chat with everyone and learn even more.

Yea shane was a super cool dude, it was a pleasure getting tattooed by him. Same with darren. I'm just waiting to get tattooed by megan because I want her to do some forearm pieces, but I'm still uncertain about touching that spot until I graduate. No clue yet, kind of a blind venture. I just know pay is awesome, and the choice of location is mine so i'm thinking texas and probably the west coast. I've only lived in Alabama/Florida, I've got much to see.

    • 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.  
    • Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tattoos have not reacted this way but I’m wondering if maybe because it’s in my arm? And the stinging feeling feels like sun burnish, but only on the bottom one. Does anyone have any advice for me??!
