black and grey hello

Recommended Posts

Hello - just trying to follow the rules here and do an introduction! Been lurking for a bit - looks like everyone's got some nice tattoos on here. Maybe I should have checked this place out before I got started.

I live in the South (US) and have been getting black and grey tattoos so far. I am interested in tattoo removal, particularly for cover ups. Hoping to post over in that forum at some point if I'm allowed to.

I don't know how many tattoos I have, but it's more than I should have in the time I've been getting them. I got a snake recently - pretty happy with it.

Obviously I don't care to say too much on the internet, so I'll leave it at that!

haha I wish I had Nate around to do all my tattoos - not that I don't like what I have. no, the snake is the only tattoo I have from him. the other stuff on my torso is from Russ Abbott and my arm/shoulder peeking out is Kurt Fagerland.

thanks for the welcome.

yeah I'd like to get some more pieces from Nathan at some point. I like the dot skulls he does. I will try to get some more pics up at some point. thanks!

    • 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
