Hello Wavey! I'm healing (but not yet peeling) too - I got my first forearm tattoo on Saturday, also a biggie, and have been looking like Pop-Eye the sailor man since then! Swelling seems to be going down today though.

A colourful piece by Joe Frost. It's based on a tapestry I love, and is of an angel with fiery wings rescuing a woman from the jaws of a serpent. (!!) I will do a link to a picture of it but it might not appear; last time I linked to instagram I got automoderated. What about you?

thank you! I love yours too - really intricate and beautifully shaded - and that splash of vivid colour amongst the black and grey works really well. Who did it?

Mine swelled up something fierce, too. Cabbage leaves and ice was a life saver!

What did you have done?

Ha! Me too. I had my elbow tattooed a couple of days ago and I got "swellbow." Its down now, but it was a sight.

Oh I bet it's fun having a tattoo on a joint, having to bend and all

Ahhh! I love the cabbage leaves :)

They work wonders! :)

I wish I'd thought about cabbage leaves - never occurred to me. They'd fit an elbow nicely!

    • 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.
