Ok calm down, I wasn’t saying you were right or wrong. The easiest answer is see a doctor or it’s an infection, I just wanted something a little more educated than that that’s all.

I’m calm and with more than 200 hours in the chair a hell of a lot more educated than you. Also done with you. Onto my ignore list you go.

Lmao, good guy! I asked for help described what I thought and you come all “know it all” all because you “have more tats than me” behave. 1 hour or 100 hrs is the same. 
 

Anyway if someone has had this sort of issue I’d appreciate your input, not a cock measuring contest, just genuine advice. 
 

like I say after tomorrow I will go to the docs to see if it’s something bad!? After so long and no symptoms I assumed I was ok health wise.

What is with the influx of these latest people? Ugh. Know-it-alls are the worst.

Huh. Nope - that's a head scratcher, for me. That's on the inside of your arm, right? Maybe it's rubbing on your rolled up shirt sleeve, or something?

It’s on the top of my forearm, the top side of my palm side. It’s weird as it didn’t react straight away. 
 

I am not a tattoo vet so I am a little worried, it doesn’t hurt and I’ve had no symptoms of it was an infection. No puss, no illness etc. it just seems to dry up peel and dry up and peel over a few days. 
 

In short I’m having a sleeve so back every 2-3 weeks when a slot is open. My artist isn’t worried about it and wants to wait it out, as I’m back so often I haven’t had time to go for a check up and as I’ve not been poorly I didn’t feel the need? Should I?

Especially when they don't know jack schitt.

He's a Richard Cranium, he'll slink off with his tail between his legs soon enough.

Under cheek is by far my worst experience.  I have 1 down and 1 to go and the odds are good my healing is going to be an experience. Sitting, standing, walking, existing; I feel like a wimp.

I did 2 hours on a growing front thigh piece on Wednesday, then went and laid on that piece for a 4.5 hour Octopus (start to finish, with no potty breaks). On the back calf of the same leg on Friday.  It is now Sunday and I've got one already in the flaky/itchy/tender stage, and one in the swollen so bad my ankle has become a cankle stage.  I'm thinking the combo of having work on the thigh piece two days prior to having to lay on my stomach for so long, and the length and detail of the second piece has caused my body to freak out a bit.  I'm hoping the cankle resolves itself pretty quickly I am on my feet 9 hours a day, 5 days a week starting back tomorrow.

    • Welcome!  In these times (and I don't mean Covid related times) it's pretty common to have to wait and patiently pursue the artist of your dreams - assuming you're stuck on just one artist. I actually waited almost 2 years to get to sit down in front of a particularly busy guy. Throwing down extra cash might work with some and piss off others. Working with personalities is always a gamble . . .  What style of tattoo are you desiring? $1000 will buy you traveling options . . . 
    • I am ready!  Really just focused on design and finding the right artist... seems like the best ones that focus on the style I like all have their books closed.  I would happily pay a premium fee to use one of these artists... considering the fact that this thing will be on my body for rest of my life, something like a $1k "bonus" to the artist seems like a no brainer to find the most talented.  Any ideas how to broach that subject?
    • Hey guys. In like 2016 a film student made a video of an old session of mine getting waves and leaves added to my turtle by Takashi Matsuba in his old studio. Thought I'd post some stills from the video here. The video's locked, but it's cool.
