Back of thighs

Recommended Posts

I was discussing with @else earlier on today that i'd love to get a Pharohs horses tattoo.. she suggested back of thighs.. i'm loving that idea. I have pretty sturdy legs and they are long so theres lots of room length wise on the back of my thighs.. i've been looking for Prints for my new house and came across this...

Morrissey Tattoo Flash Print by ParlorTattooPrints on Etsy

I LOVE The Smiths and i love this print.. thinking perhaps it could be turned into something tattooable and may be an option for the back of the other thigh!

It looks to be of a simlar shape as most of the horses tattoos ive seen and could try and do it so both tattoos have a similar border if you get what i mean?

I'm waffling... opinions purlease :) (as in is it adaptable for a good tattoo.. i don't really care if you like the subject matter :p)

amnesia????

I don't remember that...

Oh well!

I think Pharaoh's horses on the back of the thigh would be great!

I don't have an opinion on the tattooability of the Morrissey flash... that's outside my scope of practice ;)

The conversation was with me, but yeah. Go for it!

haha flattery will get you everywhere. :) I like the morissey idea. Still, the pharoahs horses should be done first, that way you can see how you feel after it is done.

agreed...just need to decide who i want to do it now!

our very own @LosingShape does a fair few Morrissey tattoos too I believe...

@hollyjoybee Yes! I do Smiths/ Moz tattoos and my good friend Mike Adams does a few as well. If you're ever near the Portland area I would love to do a Moz/ Smiths tat on you! I've got 2 flash sheets based on the Hatful of Hollow album as well as a few other designs and do custom ones as well. You can check out my stuff on Instagram (@losingshape) or my website: losingshape.com. It links to my Tumblr as well as my Bigcartel shop.

In regards to that Moz painting you posted, if I were you, since you're in the UK you should just find a tattooer who's style you really like to draw something up for you. Everybody over at Rain City (Manchester), Cock-A- Snook (Newcastle), and all the fine shops in London - Frith Street, etc, etc would most-likely do a great job. I just don't trust people on Etsy who aren't tattooers who sell "Tattoo Prints" who don't actually know anything about the craft of tattooing much less designing a good tattoo. That doesn't mean it isn't a good reference for style and how you'd like your tattoo to be designed.

The Morissey painting looks very tattooable, but from what I read, the artist who painted it is not a tattooer. I'd suggest taking it to a tattooer and getting his or her professional opinion on how they'd tweak it.

Thank you so much for your advice! I wish i were closer.. it's tempting to wait until i can afford to come visit you! Had a good deek at your instagram and your works fantastic!

i hear what you're saying about Etsy and would defo only ever use it as a reference. My dad says i can't get morrisey tattooed on me with fluttery eyelashes haha!

cheers again for your advice and reply :) x

    • 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
