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.

    • 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.
