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.

    • sounds good ! don't forget to pre-hydrate tonight(water) ,and also before the tattoo be sure and eat a full healthy meal.The sweets and bananas are  perfect ! bring a few bottles of water to drink during the tattoo.remember to relax and you will do fine.
    • I'm getting my first tattoo in 12 hours! I've even traveled for it and I'm super excited. The artist said it'd take 7 hours and I really hope that it isn't 7 hours of straight tattooing.. I've packed sweets, two bananas, a book and a switch so I hope that'll be plenty of sugars and entertainment. Now to hope that I can sleep now that the time to get the tattoo is almost here! I'll be getting a sword and a bird in the black illustrative style, but I haven't seen the design yet. I can't wait!
    • Hey everyone. First post! I recently got my 10th tattoo. It’s right below my knee on the back of my calf. Today, 2-19-19 is day 10. As you can see the tail is healing really rough. It stared getting scabbed up on day 3. I’m doing what I’ve always done- wash 2-3 x a day. Then lotion with aveeno after. I’m worried it may be infected. It’s itchig/ kind of hurts which is probably normal but that redness is worrisome. What do you guys think? Any advice is appreciated. The last pic is what it looked like on Thursday (day 4)
