Guten Tag!

Chelsea Shoneck

Recommended Posts

I registered months ago and have been a regular lurker, and I'm tired of my home page telling me to introduce myself. So here I am.

My name is Chelsea and I currently have the misfortune of being a resident of New Jersey. I'm a few months away from completing my second apprenticeship (which I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to do - but I can't wait to be done with apprenticeships!). I have been participating in tattoo forums for years and was excited to find one with such thoughtful discussions between such intelligent enthusiasts and talented tattooers who I have been looking up to for years.

So, naturally, I find this all rather intimidating and fear saying something stupid so I lurk. Haha. Thanks for this great forum :)

Bigjoe - I read about that once, kinda creeps me out :x (As does the government in general hahah)

Hmmm...you look familiar. Willkommen! I don't want to put you on the spot but maybe you can post a pic or two of some of your amazing work, I'm sure you'll receive some insightful feedback.

Hey! Thanks again for linking me this forum during the summer. Since you asked, here's a couple. I hope nobody minds me posting them.

Hahaha she just wants to be friends!! In a lunchtime kind of way.

Okay, she can sit at my table, although my table is real rowdy. I'm assuming she has excellent table manners and cuts her food up real tiny, we might be a bit rough for her.

    • 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.
