Hello, I'm new too. Thought I would try and get ten posts out of the way and post a little about myself and my intention. I'm 32 yrs old and I have been getting tattooed since I was sixteen. Unfortunately I didn't really spend time doing research until I hit 30. I mostly got sentimental one hit, black and grey "punk rock" tattoos. I never really thought beyond, "this tattooer lives in my town and they are the best one in the area." I ended up with a whole lot of stinker tattoos. About two years ago I got one that was pretty okay. This person convinced me to try color. They charged me far to much for the quality of the work but I had never seen color in my skin like they did. I was frustrated with the tattoo but also intrigued. So I finally started researching. Two years later I have just started collecting what I believe to be quality tattoos. I have a whole lot I would like to get covered up and an entire half sleeve that I would like to have lightened with a laser and covered. I've started collecting books and I'll be attending my first convention this year and would love to hear all about that. I'm obsessed and I have tons of questions. I'll be posting pictures as soon as I finish my side panel by Bryan Burk. Thanks for reading.

    • 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.
