Hello...I am new to LST. I am a tattoo fan, but not an aspiring artist. I will leave that to those who know the craft. As for me, I mostly just read the forum posts, learn things, come up with topics to discuss with my tattoo guy, and laugh at those who think they have a corner of the market on everything tattooing.

Here is my intro thread...happy inking!

Well. In the spirit of being a good person, I welcome you. I hope we can help you out and I hope your stay is enjoyable.

As far as the part I bolded. I think that most people here would agree that until you have contributed to our community and until you have extensive tattoo experience, you should probably not make comments like that. I am willing to bet that your place in the scope of tattoo world knowledge is just past the starting line. If you are exposed to the level of care tattooers have for their craft and the amount of work it takes to make good tattoos, then you would know that there is a certain "attitude" or "stance" that needs to be maintained to keep good tattooing from being diluted.

Like I said, welcome, just don't think because you have a few tattoos and your a prof. that your opinion is valid. Show us that you know what your talking about with facts, experiences, and remaining open. Once you do that, you will find that this community and the tattoo community in general is one of the greatest things in the world. We hold tattooing near and dear, so you may need to excuse what you see as "snobbery" until you understand why people sometimes act that way.

    • ... and xanax is on hand. Lol. My tattoo artist says I'm waaaaaaaay in my head. To the extremes.  It's strange. I feel fine with forearm tattoos tho. I do feel the couple I added yesterday helped a little, but I never wanted a "big" tattoo and it's just very jarring. Anxiety is a bitch. I wish I was more like...who gives a shit. All my tattoos have "zen" images and meanings, meanwhile I'm the furthest thing from zen there is. Lol. I guess I compare and question my design and need to get out of my head. My best friend is getting her tattoo from my guy BECAUSE of this tattoo of mine. And she has a gift certificate to somewhere else,  BUT she's going to him because of my tattoo. So, that says something. Says I need to shut up take a xanax and rock the damn tattoo. Lol.
    • Lol...no sleeves for me, that would send me straight to the grave. Lol. Thanks for your reply. I gotta get thru it and own it. I just got 2 new ones yesterday and it sorta brought it all together, but I still nit pick thos one apart. And I shouldn't but I do. I may have it wrapped around or something. Anxiety is the worst. Seriously awful. Wish my brain was care free
    • Anxiety sucks. What to do? Make it into a sleeve? Add tattoos around it? Make it part of a scene? I can relate to anxiety, but thankfully I never had tattoo regret. I’m in the last stages of a body suit, so if I did get it, I’d probably need a carload of Xanax.
