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!

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
