    • Hi everyone... sorry, I thought I'd posted here earlier. I've found this site a few times over the last year searching various topics. I've never traveled and tattooed... so I would like to.  I feel like I'm still practicing right now... I feel like I'm getting close to figuring out my own styles. I kind of just try to do my best at tattooing whatever people want.  I just want to get better at it.  
    • Just butting in... read the thread, and I couldn't really understand how you got from the inspiration images to an eagle... but it looks nice and clean. Forget the olive branch... that's just complicating the tattoo... once the clouds are in there and everything is shaded it will look impressive. Trying to change or modify the design when the agreed upon plan is in progress never ends well. I'd vote for black and grey or black grey and grey-blue... but that might change after seeing the artist's portfolio. Trust your artist... it looks like you chose the right person for your project so far.
    • Stop using lotion. Within 48 hours you should notice a difference. lotion should be used as sparingly as possible, and it is usually the cause of people's worry. Too much lotion can breed bacteria. Let it dry out. Itching is normal.  Itch next to it, or tap it... don't itch it directly. If the issue worsens, go to see your doctor for anti-biotics. As for it being raised... leave it alone and look at it again after 3 weeks. If it is still raised after the scab has gone, use cocoa butter daily for a few weeks. Don't over-wash the tattoo... you don't have to stop using soap... keep it clean like you would normally.  If you get sweaty, take a shower, if you get dirt or mud on it... wash it.  Don't rub it in dog poo ect...
