Reverend Lum

Salutations from NW Pennsylvania!

Recommended Posts

Greeting LSTers. I have been lurking the site for some time now and figured why not jump in!

For starters, my username isn't a take on the legendary Dave Lum, but is a nickname given to me by an uncle. (I am an ordained minister, so that I appointed myself the honorific of Rev.)

My love affair with tattoos and tattooing started while growing up in the military. I bugged the shit out of my parents on a near daily basis from the time I was 5 until about 10 asking when I could get tattooed. After a while it kind of faded until punk rock/hardcore came into my life, and with it, brought back my love of tattoos. Started with my first ones on my 18th birthday and slowly started gathering more.

I currently am apprenticing under a 15 year veteran of the industry. It's been a whole lot of scrubbing tubes, making needles and asking questions that make me look like a dullard! Tattooing is something I have been passionate about for most of my life and I hope to be able to treat it with the respect and admiration it deserves!

Thanks,

Rev. Lum

    • sounds good ! don't forget to pre-hydrate tonight(water) ,and also before the tattoo be sure and eat a full healthy meal.The sweets and bananas are  perfect ! bring a few bottles of water to drink during the tattoo.remember to relax and you will do fine.
    • I'm getting my first tattoo in 12 hours! I've even traveled for it and I'm super excited. The artist said it'd take 7 hours and I really hope that it isn't 7 hours of straight tattooing.. I've packed sweets, two bananas, a book and a switch so I hope that'll be plenty of sugars and entertainment. Now to hope that I can sleep now that the time to get the tattoo is almost here! I'll be getting a sword and a bird in the black illustrative style, but I haven't seen the design yet. I can't wait!
    • Hey everyone. First post! I recently got my 10th tattoo. It’s right below my knee on the back of my calf. Today, 2-19-19 is day 10. As you can see the tail is healing really rough. It stared getting scabbed up on day 3. I’m doing what I’ve always done- wash 2-3 x a day. Then lotion with aveeno after. I’m worried it may be infected. It’s itchig/ kind of hurts which is probably normal but that redness is worrisome. What do you guys think? Any advice is appreciated. The last pic is what it looked like on Thursday (day 4)
