Hi. I'm Samantha. I'm 27 years old and have been in love with tattoos since I was a little girl. I currently have 6 and plan to have many more.

I remember sitting on my grandfathers lap and tracing his tattoo's with a covered pen/marker etc. I would have been about 3. There's a home video of me and my mom asked what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said a tattoo person. I was probably 5 at the time. I have no artistic talent so that plan went out the window but I love getting them. It's relaxing (albeit sometimes painful) to me. I live in Iowa. My first tattoo was done in a shop in town. I can't remember the name but it was the guy who my step dad went to. All my others have been done by Skin Kitchen Tattoo in Des Moines Iowa. I'm working on a half sleeve now. I'm going Sunday to see the final design and then hopefully the week after start the sleeve. There is a huge chance we will be moving to Switzerland in the fall and I'm excited about checking out some of those shops.

    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
    • I'll be there.  Hopefully all 3 days, but we'll see what happens.
