Hi! Inserting my newbie intro right here. =)

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!

    • 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.
