    • Hey bro, lookin good   I’m not into tribal art on myself but I like looking at others work. You sure went all in for your first tattoo and didn’t go wrong with art or artist I’d say.  Others have answered your question, but I would’ve definitely told you to stay with that artist if you were happy, changing in the middle of a project would probably not deliver the outcome you wanted. One artist one style .. i have 8 tattoos plus my left arm sleeve and I was worried like you were in the beginning, but I don’t even think about it until around 3 weeks for a truer finished product. I just use a lotion with a skin protective active ingredient like lotion from hospital, keep it moist but not overly as that can bring out the ink from my experience. I normally use lotion twice a day until the peeling is almost done then once a day after showering then when needed once peeling is done. Also shaving the hair off will give you the true look oppose to having a slightly distorted look from hair being over it. I shave my arms only after it’s healed about once every 2 weeks so they look the best. Good luck to you  
    • New to the online tattoo world and getting tattoos for the most part. I’ve had one small piece for years and recently started getting more and more tattoos since the woman I’m with now likes ink oppose to my last wife that didn’t approve. I am into monochrome for some reason, I don’t dislike color tattoos I just haven’t seen anything I would like on me and I am very pleased with black ink. My most recent endeavor started as upper arm hourglass, lower arm sword/rock , then all the background fill in. I hooked up with an artist that freehand so I showed him what i liked and let him put his own look into it from starting to the 98% I’m at now. The idea from the start was full sleeve so he knew what was going to go where when it was time. The background is a mountain, sunset with clouds and some stars. It looks good to me so hopefully I’ll get some good feedback from here about it. I only lack on inside upper bicep right at the arm pit and some touch up. The hourglass gets some more detail to make it pop more and it was the first ink so it’s not as dark now. Well anyway, look forward to talking to you all. Also I forgot to mention the stairway, the date on the first step is the date the woman I love and myself will be married!! The puzzle piece was a his and hers tattoo the girl and me got after we figured why the hell not, lol  so he had to work it into the sleeve.  sorry the pics aren’t very good, hard to pose right and get good pics selfie style
    • Hey bro, i hear ya on the sensitive skin areas.  My left arm has been a free hand sleeve project broken into 2 main tattoos and then fill in sessions. Well let’s say after the first fill in session I didn’t wait long enough to try and finish and damn that arm was just painful from the start. I’m 98% done now and had to pull the cord during 2nd fill in session. On the inside of bicep right at the arm pit lit me on fire, lol. Well my point was; try vasocaine lidocaine spray. After you get going on your ink and have broken skin all over, best after outlines, spray the areas and wait 5 minutes and mostly will be numb except in the most sensitive areas. It also helped with swelling, bleeding, and helped afterward not be so sore.  And no I’m not pitching the product, it just really works.

      So as you may or may not have seen there were some request to start a new area for tattoo designs (thanks for the feedback!) so the LST Team decided to add a new tab obviously titled "Tattoo Designs" as you are here. But no one seems to be writing anything so I figured I would make an intro to our new tab and try to throw some gasoline and an M-80 on the fire to get it burning!
      Please do not let the title of the tab limit your writing, pictures, ideas, creative muses, etc to tattoo designs but let it be any art. What, who is your muse for a piece and how do you decide what genre/format to do it in?
      We see hundreds/thousands of dragons, tigers, skulls, roses, nautical, script, girls faces, daggers, yada yada art yet it continues to be done. There is nothing wrong with any of the above as I always enjoy seeing each artist or tattooers flavor added to it. For all you "foodies" out there think of the various spices or flavors chefs try over and over to make their own unique meal. Their own unique burger, grilled cheese, salad, you get the picture!
      Oh yeah if you have art or flash or tattoo machines or what have yous post some info with a link under the "Vendor Marketplace" as that are is pretty silent as well and we hope will generate some new business for you!!
      On with the bag of M-80s, lets do this.........
      I think the best roses are done by Tim Hendricks and would love to hear how he came to how they are now???

      what's everyone's opinion on this?
      i know there are some artists out there that feel that if one artist bases their design off of another artist's work, that is stealing. however, almost every artists incorporates the use of designs that have been used for many, many years. what's the difference to you (if there is one)?
      since i'm not an artist, only a client, i'm just curious to hear what everyone thinks.
