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

    • @bluebullets If it helps, the quality of the ink today is better than 20 years ago (so I hear). So todays ink should last better, and safer as we use synthetic azo dyes instead of metals to make color.  Of course you need to take care of your ink as well. You said you already have tattoos, but is more concerned about ageing for sleeves. From what I have seen, I think sleeves age really nicely!!  Sorry....I dont have a 20 year tattoo but i just wanted to say I went for a sleeve over individual tattoos for the exact reason you are not😂 (But Im open to one piece shots on my leg or other arm, just need my wallet to recover)
    • looks fine to me,in 6 weeks when it heals more it should look great.
    • Can anyone complete this design? I need some ideas. This was a coverup that went wrong. Any ideas on where to go with this tattoo? I am okay with color and love the watercolor designs.
