Hello from Munich, Germany

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My name is Izzy and I live in Munich, Germany. I've been reading this forum for a few weeks and today I decided to join.

I've been getting tattooed for approx. 10 years. It all started with the usual stars and some more stars (I've got too many of them if you ask me...). Since then I've been experimenting with different styles until I finally settled with the traditional style.

Unfortunately we only have one studio in my hometown which specialises in this style thus I sometimes have to wait up to 6 months for an appointment.

To satisfy my need to get tattooed I travel a lot, mostly to the States. In May I will fly to L.A. - my favourite place in the world :) - and get a tattoo at "True Tattoo".

I've already been to "Ocala Tattoo" in Florida to get tattooed. Great studio. I'm gonna go there in August again and I will also check out "Royal Street Tattoo" in Mobile, AL.

I have already uploaded a few photos to the gallery - all of them were done in Germany.

That's my tattoo-story so far :).

Cheers, Izzy

Welcome Izzy...I came across this tattooer who has a private studio in Germany. anna enola / nimmermehr taetowierungen Don't know if she's near you though.

Who is doing your tattoo at True? Bryan is a member on this forum,and has a shop in LA. Best Tattoo Artists | Top Tattoo Shops and Parlor in Los Angeles | Dark Horse Tattoo Los Angeles

A few shops in Orlando to check out.. Rise Above Tattoo Orlando Florida & welcome

Royal Street seems like a great shop too.You sure do get around.If your in LA in early June,check out the convention in Long Beach.

Ink-N-Iron Festival I hear it's one of the best in CA.

Hey bigjoe,

I've never heard of Anna Enola but I really dig her style. Amazing! I'd love to get tattooed by her one day even though I guess that she has a pretty long waiting list.

She has her studio in Dortmund which is around 6 hours away from my hometown but I'd drive anywhere to get a great tattoo.

That's what I love about the USA. You either just walk in and get your tattoo right away by a topnotch tattooer or you just set up an appointment for a desired date.

I don't know yet who will tattoo me at "True Tattoo". I really like Litte Dave Parker's style but I'm always open to recommendations.

My trip to California will start on 26 May and will take 2 weeks. I wanted to show up at "True Tattoo" at the beginning and set up an appointment for the last quarter of my trip because I plan on going surfing and maybe jetskiing/doing some waterbased sports.

Thanks for the tip with the Ink-n-Iron Festival. That's a great idea to maybe get a second tattoo during my trip. I will head home on 9 June.

Man, I'm already planning to fly to N.Y. around christmas to "Smith Street Tattoo", I just have to convince my bf to cross the Atlantic ocean for the third time this year ;).

    • 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...
