Speaking Up

Recommended Posts

I've lurked a bit, so I guess I should say hello.

From NC, obsessed with my dog, work out too much, and just dipping my toe into the tattoo world. I have 4 at this point and looking to expand on the most recent (probably in the fall). I can speak with experience to anybody who wants to know what happens to tattoos when you gain or lose weight. 2 of my 4 don't look quite like they should after a major life change and weight loss. Think hard about those rib cage pieces folks.

When I figure out how to add pictures, I will.

Nothing fancy, but personal, and no, not off the flash wall ;) The prints are my actual dog and cat's. After the shit I've been through in the last few years they're the only things that have still stood with me.

No pics of the others, but I have scripture (2 Timothy 1:7) on my ribcage and a tortoise (Alfie from Esio Trot by Roald Dahl) on my hip.

Hey, do you really think it's a good idea to start a backpieces as a first tattoo..... kinda a long contentment, maybe test out the waters first......... ;)

    • 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.
