I live in England and the best advice i can give you is go for it! Although i'm not sure exactly where you live so it might be a hell of a lot more expensive than it is for me, this will be my 4th trip to be tattooed by Marius and it's so worth it.

 

Edit: Profile says you're in the States so yeah, the cost isn't really comparible. It's costing me £45 for a return flight (around 55 dollars US). In that case i feel your pain!

One day...he's on my list. I swear almost everything I see from him totally floors me. 

I live in California, so the travel will likely be a bit more than $55 ;)

@Machcekborrach That's awesome; please keep us posted on progress. His tigers are so awesome. The one he did on the True Love doc made me fall in love with them years ago. I'm really thinking about having him do my stomach as well with a tiger and a snake fighting. The fact that you say he's fast makes me think that might be a good thing for the belly.

Appointment booked January 24 with Sarah Hurst @ Vivid Tattoo Knoxville. She will correct the faked line on my arm. This will be almost a week after I return form India, and I don't know which one is more anticipated!

So, I've gone a little crazy lately. I already had an appointment in December with Chauncey "CK" Kochel. Then I made my appointment with Dave Wah in January for the Austin convention.......well, my wife and I decided we needed a vacation.....

So, we both have appointments in February with Freddy Negrete at Shamrock in LA. After that, I swear I'll slow down.

that's cool !

my wife and myself got tattooed at a convention together at two different conventions this year,we had back to back appointments by the same artist at each show,it was a really great time to spend together getting tattooed.

My wife also recently had two large tattooes done by 2 different artists within two weeks of each other,I had 4 done this year ,it's been a busy year for us too ! it might sound sappy,but both shows we went to and got tattooed at was a real bonding fun time for us.

The closest I'm getting to a tattoo this year looks to be the plane ticket for my consultation in March I'm buying tomorrow.  Between my other hobbies and being a college student I really don't have to worry about pacing myself, my life budgets my tattoos for me :7_sweat_smile:

Heya all, new to the forums
Not a tattoo virgin, but am getting my first sleeve next month. I live in Greece, hence my choice of artists is quite limited. I need someone that is very knowledgeable about Japanese traditional/neo-traditional to talk to, to make sure i picked the right artist! I booked two sessions one day after the other, in January.
Im guessing im not allowed to post artist’s works on here, so whoever can help, pls PM me!

Thanks!

You most certainly can and are encouraged to post a link to your artist and/or pictures of his/her work. Fire away.

    • I don't get it either.  If anything, it gave me a sense of accomplishment and overcoming of anxiety, not creating it.  I think too many people today is the simplest things as the end of the world instead of just getting over it and going on with life.  Not to sound like an old fart, but I think too many people today don't know what real hardship really is.
    • As you might remember my story about almost 2 years ago and I want to thank you guys again for how much you've been uplifting me with your honesty and your words.  This post tattoo anxiety seems a very common thing. It hit me as well even though I was planning on getting a big one for many years.  Many people have contacted me and having those feelings seems to be a very common thing, there seems to be the same pattern that people are going through. it looks to me that nowadays people want to have a solution for everything immediately if they don't feel comfortable with something. People don't know how to be patient anymore and get rid of something if they don't like it. People compare themselves way too much with others as it's what social media does with many people's minds. There are quite a few reasons that I could write about regarding post tattoo anxiety and I was thinking about posting my experience here as so many people have been reaching out to me and I can see there seems to be a common psychological process (which maybe I will do if I find time to do so) Anyway:  I can assure to everyone with this anxiety: YOU WILL GET OVER THAT IT  and live will go on. It might take some time but you will get there. Don't be hard on yourself and even if right now you're having horrible panic attacks (which is a horrible feeling), it'll get less and you'll come to love your tattoo. It's a change you've done to your body and your mind now needs some time to adjust. Don't forget that you love tattoos and why you love them because this is why you decided to get them and it'll look great on you!    
    • I have been checking some review and got this "Numb 520 isn’t recommended for long sessions where you’ll need multiple reapplications every hour or so" I thought you may as well apply first layer later.... I have had a tattoo done on biceps and chest no relief from pain was needed(I'm not saying it didn't hurt as hell) but on my belly I just couldn't. I have read a bit how to help yourself,keep hydrated,get proper sleep,don't drink alko for 24hr,eat sweetes. Ibuprofen and aspirin thins your blood but paracetamol they say is safe to take is that true? The biggest problem is that my tattoo is done abroad during a holiday where I go only twice a year so not enduring a whole session is a big loss of time that's why I'm trying to get some advice how to help with the pain. Thanks.
