New around here.

Hey all,

I've been lurking around LST for the past couple of weeks now, and finally decided to join.

I got my first tattoo on Wednesday, and the forum here definitely helped me make up my mind on what I wanted. I ended up going for a pair of traditional style swallows on my foot, and Sharon from Tattoo 13 in Soho did the rest! I uploaded a pic to my profile :)

A bit more about me, I was born and raised in Australia (a city called Wollongong, south of Sydney) but moved to London about 8 months ago (thanks to my English parents, I've got myself a shiny new British passport), and am working and enjoying life.

That's it for now I suppose...

Thanks for the welcome and good vibes projected towards my ink. I told Sharon (the Artist) that I wanted colour, and let her do the rest, which for me makes it more like a signature piece from Her.

Hello Luke, nice to meet you. I love your tattoo, it looks awesome. How long did it take to complete?

Thanks! It took about 2 hours all up :)

@hogg I was surprised at how tolerable it was myself, I think maybe my mind is my worst enemy in these circumstances, but I'm glad I went in expecting the worst and was pleasantly surprised, rather than the other way around :p

So I got another tattoo 5 days from Ricky @ the family business. It's a bear on my ribs, and I've uploaded a pic to my profile (please excuse the poor quality, I took it on my phone is lowish light).

I'm booked in to get it coloured in a few weeks :)

Another update for anyone interested :)

I had my bear coloured in 2 saturdays ago, and it's good to be finished!


This photo was taken shortly after it was finished.

    • 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.
