Hi all. New to this forum. Just got my 2nd piece done - will post it up in the General Tattoo section. Went from none to two in a year and a half. Time to stop now :-)

Welcome! Two in a year and a half is slow by LST standards. Congrats on having such willpower.

I've wanted a tattoo for a good 20 years now, so I used turning 50 years old as an excuse (I can say mid-life crisis) and got my 1st done. #2 was much more thought out and planned, but now I have the two I always wanted, one on each upper arm, and I'm almost satisfied. Going to hopefully add to the 1st one.

Key word almost. Now time to plan a backpiece!

Welcome.. Great Gunnar piece. I find that there isn't a whole lot of love here for anything that isn't traditional :/

I realize that, but that's OK. To me a tattoo is about the artistic quality regardless of the genre of it. Personally I am not a fan of traditional, but it doesn't mean I don't appreciate them. Plus, it was funny when Gunnar and I were talking about tattoo genres. When we were discussing new school, traditional, etc, he said it was funny he was pegged as new school. He said that he'd been tattooing too long to be "new school" and smiled. All I know as I was stoked with the outcome of the Gunnar piece after the time I took to research out the artist (find him) and get what I wanted - an original piece.

Nice stuff @metalmancpa. I'm not a new school fan but I really like your Gunnar piece.

Thank you. Actually it feels good to get a compliment on my tattoo from someone who, although may not like the style, appreciates good art. That's how I view tattoos - even though I may not want a style on my body doesn't mean I love seeing it on somebody else. I have really come to appreciate the varying styles in the tattoo world, and I view them as art.

And that's the bottom line. There is limited new school or american traditional that I would actually get tattooed on me - but I still love looking at it, and am glad that other people get it done and show it off. Diversity.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
