Very cool piece of history.

Very cool. I love old footage like that. I never get tired of hearing people talk about why they get tattooed or what it means to them. Endlessly fascinating. I watched another old video the other day called "Stoney Knows How," and it was similarly intriguing. Think it was shot in the late 1960s. I was alive in the early 70s but it seems like another era completely. Sadly, on YouTube I could only find parts 1 & 3. Thanks for posting this find.

Very interesting!

One lady there states that her tattoo (A considerable backpiece) feels a part of her and that she'd feel naked without it.

I can really relate to that; I'd feel like an important part of me was missing if my ink was to dissapear in the morning.

    • 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.
