New Blood. Hello everybody!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! My name is Justin and I am an apprentice at south shore tattoo in amityville NY (home of the horror). As I write to you now I am being tattooed by my friend and owner of th shop mike Nomikos who is really talented and I'll post a pic later for you all to see. I should be starting tattooing soon and I figured I'd become a part of this community to share some ideas and photos of my progress, in time hopefully I'll have some of your blessings to tattoo you. If any of you wish to follow my progress and life in tattooing you can check out my Instagram: @Jbulba. Thanks and hello!

I feel bad that I am the first one welcoming you because I am brand new here as well and don't know much about tattoos other than they hurt a bit and are permanent(laughing). I just got my first tattoo a couple of weeks ago, a hinge on my right arm. You have joined an amazing group of artists, tattoo'd folks, and plain ol' bad asses over here. My artist was new like you and he is amazing and I think you will be on that very same road too. I hope you love this group as much as I do. Enjoy!!

    • Hi guys, so I recently got a cover up and it's a little over 2 weeks in the healing process. I'm finally starting to like it, but it doesn't fully cover up my old tattoo! There are hints of the old tattoo still showing through (where the arrows in the picture point to the faint black curved line). Is there any way to fix this and cover this part up better? Can I just go back for a touch up and maybe have the tattoo artist go over it one more time with some shading and yellow ink? Thanks for the advice.
    • There's nothing to fix on that tattoo. It's still healing. Tattoos look weird when they are healing. A lot of people say to give it 6 weeks to heal and then judge, but I'd given it longer, at least three months. It shouldn't be shiny or bumpy then.  Secondly, a tattoo is not a sticker. No tattoo is perfect. Tattoos do not heal exactly the way they looked when they were first done. Skin is a living canvas and that means lines often spread or color migrates. It would be ridiculous to go back to your artist to get that "fixed." If you can't live with minor imperfections, then tattoos aren't for you. 
    • Tattoos in general fade with time. Trying to do anything to it while maintaining the original design is going to make a mess of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
