Hey everyone. I found this forum on google and it looks interesting.

I'm from switzerland and about to get my first tattoo. I joined this forum because I hope to find some ideas for a design/motive for my first tattoo.

Is there a thread where I can ask for motive-suggestions? :)

hm doesn't really look like a thread where I can post questions.

The 10 Post limit to post a thread is a little bit annoying :)

Due to the fact that I'm new to Tattoos there is no conversation I can take part to raise my postcount. And I don't want to post 10 senseless posts in the offtopic section ;) In my opinion the forum should have pinned "general-questions" threads for newbies (I can't find one)

I'm looking for ideas for a Tribal/blackngrey Tattoo ( in other words: Tribal with Shadows) placed on my chest to cover a mark/spot. But as long as I can't create a thread, it's impossible for me to ask :)

We absolutely love you for not doing this! You can ask all the questions you want right here in this thread and you will most likely get great answers from other members with extensive tattoo knowledge.

thx for the friendly answers, I see that this is a very active forum :) I like it

I'm sorry for all grammar mistakes (english isn't my native language :p )

Ok, so I post my main question in this thread:

As I mentioned I've planned to get my first Tattoo. The reason why I want a Tattoo is a bit different compared with other people I guess. I'm actually not the kind of person whos getting tattoos even I really like them (not all sort of tattoos ofc). The reason why I want to get a Tattoo is to cover a ugly-looking but harmless spot/mark (5*10cm) on my chest and some small scars. Some people might tell me now that this is a wrong motivation for getting a tattoo and I do agree with them partly but not completly. I had been thinking about this for 2 years and I came to the decision that I prefer getting a goodlooking tattoo instead of having a terrible chest. So the decision that I want this tattoo is 100% considered and definitly ;)

I've already chosen the place where I'd like to get my tattoo: Tattoo - Giahi - EN

But before I go there I want to prepare myself (having an idea what I want) and I hope that you can help me ;)

http://www.bilder-upload.eu/upload/f7fe48-1361474964.jpg This is a picture of the chest. The black part is the part where I'd like to have the tattoo (not exact, just roughly ofcourse). The Red area is the mark/spot. The blue points are the scars.

I've been looking through thousands of tattoo websites for 2 weeks and I came to the decision that I like most the Tribal ones, especially the black and grey tribals (I dont know If you can name them this way).

For example: http://www.bilder-upload.eu/upload/596021-1361475206.jpg or http://www.bilder-upload.eu/upload/c76080-1361475392.jpg

In my case, the most important thing is that my mark and my scars get covered. I think with a Tattoo as showed in the last 2 pictures it would be easy to cover small scars. The problem is, that it wont cover the big mark/spot. I assume that for the mark/spot I need colour.

So my idea is actually that the Tattoo should be kind of splitted in 2 parts (with a transition ofcourse). The upper part should be something as showed in the pictures and the bottom part should be the same style but covering the mark/spot (maybe a tribal with a background? I have no idea :) ).

Do you have any idea for me to master this? I'm a really not creative person and I'd really like to get some inputs from creative people :) Thank you very much

Hi. I joined this forum because I hope to find some ideas for a design/motive for my next tattoo.

I'm from Russia, but I live and study in China. In China a lot of good masters, but I want to try something different and I want to find fresh ideas here.

    • I’m currently working on my sleeve and I’m about halfway done with it. I noticed now that there’s a small smell on my tattoo. I can’t smell it from a distance and only can smell it when I get super close to my tattoo. I’m just concerned with the thought of an infection but I’ve done everything the same I have with my 7 other tattoos. I have no unusual pain with it and it isn’t red or inflamed. Just would like a little advice on what to do? 
    • Hey! Wouldn't by chance be going to the empire state ny tattoo expo would ya?  In any case, i did a 3 day marathon and boy was it tough. i did the ole soap and a balm that my artist provided. With that being said, you should 100% ask your artist(s) as they know how they tattoo and how their tattoos heal for the most part. They should tell you what to do but i've heard many great things about saniderm. Best of luck!
    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
