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!

Welcome...and watch out for Bunny-she'll have you going from feathers on your ankle to a full back-piece in no time!

What type of mysticism are you interested in portraying in your future work?

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.

    • Welcome. I think a lot of things can have an affect on felt pain... placement, your state of mind, general health, etc.  Do what they recommend, rest, good meal before, hydrated, take a snack along and you'll be fine.  Just stay calm and don't make it worse than it is.  Maybe let everyone know where you're getting it for more specific advice.
    • I’m pretty new to this site so sorry if i don’t really understand how to work it, but i’m getting my second tattoo tomorrow and i’m excited but also nervous because it’s a different body part i’ve never gotten tattooed before AND it’s a different design and style of tattoo than my first so i’m not sure what to expect besides the feeling of getting repeatedly stabbed by a needle lol. I’m mostly just nervous about the pain where it’s going to be located, i’m not expecting it to be painless because let’s be real pretty much all tattoos have some pain.
    • Really glad my stress is amusing you all
