Combining Tattoo 101 and War Stories

Recommended Posts

It seems like those two categories are essentially the same thing. Also, there are some design threads getting thrown in the those two (like I would think the Full Back Piece thread should be in Designs.) As for naming conventions, I think calling the combined Tattoo 101 and War Stories something like "General Tattoo" will cut down on 1) people asking about tattooing advice ("101" implies school/education) 2) War Stories sounds like a place to vent, which I think gets covered pretty well in Random Crap. Just putting that out there.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for this suggestion.

We have been discussing internally and have made some changes to these sub-forum names & descriptions to help differentiate the difference between the two.

We'll continue to move threads to their most logical forums as we encounter them.

We didn't combine them because we want to make it easier for everybody to browse the forum by topic, rather than ending up with one giant mixed bag of topics.

Keep the suggestions coming as always!

    • If they can completely cover a black tattoo with a different design, I'd think covering yellow and orange with a darker red would be simple.  The color probably will be different than ones done over bare skin, but should just add depth. Any decent artist should be able to easily handle this. Also, welcome.
    • Hello all! Stoked to be to be a part of this awesome community after lurking around for a bit haha  I joined this forum because of all the great advice and support people have been receiving in their post. You guys rock!   Recently, I just got a dragon done with mainly black scales, with yellow/gold and orange to compliment the scales. However, I realized that I don't really like the yellow and orange and want to do a red to dark red or maroon dragon. Is it possible to tattoo dark red or maroon over the yellow/gold and orange? How complex would it be? Any cons to this? Another thing to mention is that not all scales are fully colored in with the yellow and orange (all the black is done already). Would the colors be slightly different for the ones I'm replacing over vs the ones that haven't been filled in yet? Thanks!  
    • Hey.  I have this on my hand and I want to blend it with the rest of the tattoo. There will be some more tattoos in the white bits above it but I need an idea on how I can merge the armband with the rest through a background or something. And also I'd like to have some sort of an ending on my forearm. I was thinking of a mandala design but not sure. Some gradient from the armband down into the mandala tattoo. If you have any suggestions please let me know.  https://imgur.com/a/AICbRo1
