Hi! Inserting my newbie intro right here. =)

Sarah Jinks Douglas

Recommended Posts

I'm Sarah, known at the shop and by alot of my friends as Peeps. I have always been in awe of the art of tattoo. When I was 26 I finally got the nerve in the midst of a nice little quarter life crisis to get my first tattoo. I whined, cried, screamed like a little brat getting the ugliest black heart outlined in pink and dripping 'blood' on my ankle LOL. I didn't give up though and finally met some awesome new friends in the business, a few good artists and I got some more pieces. Most have been much better experiences.

I decided with the amount of time I was spending at the shop, my appreciation and love for the art and business, and my creativity that being a tattoo artist was something I wanted to do. I haven't felt so 'right' and 'natural' with anything in my life beside mothering my daughter. Like I have finally found a niche, something I DESIRE to do, be around, be associated with. I was offered an apprenticeship a few months ago from my friends at the shop I hung out at. I'm still a ways out from being in skin and do not at all intend on pushing that- I won't touch it til I KNOW I'm ready.

I hope to make friends, branch out my ideas and knowledge and enjoy an art I adore so much while I'm on this forum!

    • Back at the shop yesterday to see Andrew (he did my most of my leg stuff plus a few others). Webs either side of my sternum heart. Once we finished, he said he will see how it heals and do some touch ups- and that we need sowing above the daggers to balance it. I suggested a mini Web, so we're going with that. Will be living in wire-free bras for a bit (material is softer so less irritation) while healing. I had to laugh , no bra and you can't even see the webs 🤣. Thanks kids and gravity.  I've booked a weekday with Kyle in August for my elbow, but I have an opportunity to teach so looks like I need to shuffle my elbow appointment yet again. I'm going to see if I can't get in earlier in the month.  Anyway, super happy with the webs, I fully expected to hate my life choices but it was one of the easiest ones yet. The bottoms of the mermaids sucked way more. This was just lots of vibrations. Happy days!
    • @rabbitrok @Dan , yeah can't go wrong with flowers! I have some little blossoms and the roses with more flowers to come. But I still stand by the skulls 💀 😍
    • "Friday the 13th tattoo" refers to a tradition where tattoo shops offer special deals on the 13th of the month if it falls on a Friday. Originating from the association of Friday the 13th with bad luck, this event has become a popular date for getting tattoos, often featuring spooky or superstitious themes. Tattoo enthusiasts and newcomers alike take advantage of discounted prices, typically $13 plus a $7 tip, totaling $20. The designs are usually pre-drawn flash tattoos, small and simple. This event combines fun, superstition, and art, making it a unique cultural phenomenon in the tattoo community.
