Cinder

Hey, there!

Recommended Posts

Hiya, I'm Cinder (or Kate, doesn't matter), and I finally got my first tattoo on my 21st birthday, a couple days ago, after spending years thinking about it. I went through a day of "Oh, god, does it look okay? It's going to be on me forever?" Now I'm planning more, and am really enjoying the whole experience.

I love art, but could never see myself getting into putting my art on people's bodies. So, I'm just your typical student, painter, and tattoo lover. Because of my career path (teaching), I have to keep everything under wraps. My feather on my ankle will be a part of a phoenix concept on my thigh, and I want my body to have the whole "reincarnation, mysticism" theme.

Nice to meet you!

Hey Cinder, what will you be teaching? I'm a teacher--currently in a kindergarten collaborative classroom. I have a couple of tattoos that are often visible, a few more that usually aren't, and plan on getting more. It has not been an issue at all, but I work in the inner city in Los Angeles where most of the parents of my students are also tattooed. As was recently mentioned in the tattoos & the workplace thread, it depends on your employer, but location is a big factor, too.

Mostly elementary students. :) I want to work in a kindergarten as well.

I'm in VA as well. Where did you go?

Khaos Ink in Gloucester - Spike did the ink. I may go get it retouched, because a couple of my friends when they first saw it thought the pink flame aura was an infection. >.> So now I'm paranoid and think that others will think the same. But otherwise it's healing quite well. It just finished its first peel, so I'm thankful that it's not itching anymore lol.

    • Yes, blowouts can happen no matter how skilled the artist. The thinner and more delicate the skin, the greater the chance of a blowout.
    • Re-read the response. You don't know what it's going to look like until it heals. 4-6 weeks. There is no point in worrying until then. There is NOTHING you can do. EVERYONE'S tattoo looks like shit while it's healing and peeling.  Tattoos are not perfect. There is NO tattoo that you can't find something wrong with if you look hard enough. If you can't get past the perfectionist, I wouldn't get any more tattoos because you'll A) make yourself miserable obsessing over the tattoo or B) completely ruin the tattoo trying to "fix" it. You have a nice tattoo there, quit ruining it for yourself and just enjoy it.
    • Thanks for the reply. How do you think it looks from an outsider point of view? I felt as if the rose had maybe too much shading, but it could end up nice with highlights and once it's all finished. I'm just very particular and a perfectionist. Having that much black is kind of like WOW and I'm not really used to it haha. Was expecting something more subtle.
