Hello from the Dallas/Fort Worth area

Recommended Posts

Hey... I found this forum by searching Kore Flatmo stuff and the interview you guys did came up, which I watched and enjoyed). I've also since watched the Oliver Peck interview and a few others on the site. I've been browsing around the forum for a few days and decided to register. My name is Harley and I'm 37 years old and I'm an IT professional in the Dallas area. I have day of the dead work from Kore Flatmo on my legs and a day of the dead piece on my back done by David Bruehl. I am also 2 sessions into some removal on my arm that I'm having done by Alan Faulkner at Fade Fast. I'll post pictures of the Flatmo and Bruehl pieces as soon as I determine the appropriate thread. thanks!

Thanks for the nice welcome everyone!

@Joe Shit - I have no idea who I'm going to for the next one. I'd love to have Kore do it, but just getting to him alone costs me a good amount of money and that's just one trip. Going to David Bruehl was nice because Norman is just a 3 hour drive from here, but he just announced that he's moving and his timeframe doesn't give me enough time for another laser session and the heal time in between. I visited Rock of Ages and met with Steve Bryne while I was in Austin for south by southwest. He said he was definitely up for tackling the cover up once I have another session or 2 of removal, its just another 3 hour drive each way for each session.

@Scott R - Ha...those similarities are funny! I really enjoyed my time up at Think Ink. All those guys are super nice, had a ton of cool artwork up, had awesome music blaring and obviously David did an awesome job.

Should I just upload pictures of my tattoos to my profile or do I find the "day of the dead gallery" and post them there? Or both?

Thanks again for the kind welcome!

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
