You have more of a chance of F***ing it up than making it better if you start monkeying around with it. Go see a really good artist to get some ideas of what to add around it.
There's nothing wrong with that tattoo.
It's been hard to miss the announcements about this all over instagram recently, who is excited for it? I'm really looking forward to it and am really hopeful that this is a proper non-professional equivalent to Tattoo Artist Magazine and while it's maybe unrealistic to expect the depth of that magazine (when I was last getting tattooed I looked at the issue featuring State of Grace, and they had something like a 50 page feature on that shop, and while I would personally love to be able to have access to things like that I think it would be alienating to the vast majority of people who are interested enough in tattoos to read a magazine about them) I hope it offers real substance for people serious about tattoos, and can help educate people about good tattoos.
i just started reading this the other night. in the introduction, the author talks about cases of tattoo removal in the late 1800s and early 1900s. i had no clue that this was possible.
i have a question for you tattooer that may know the answer-how was this done? i'm assuming the that the tattoo had to be cut or scrapped off, but who the hell knows.
Does anybody know if the new Milton Zeis book, Tattooing as you like it will be made available in the UK? I've looked in to ordering it but the cost of the book and the shipping itself works out at £106 or $168. I know it's worth paying the cost rather than buying a couple of books that aren't that much good but to me it's still a lot of money to part with! So I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas before I spend a fortune on shipping to find that it's available in the UK in a few months time!
