Hey LST forums,

My name's Nick and I'm from South Australia! stumbled upon this forum whilst trying to do a little research for a piece that i'm aching to get!

I'm 22 years old and not heavily tattooed at all, however have a massive appreciation for them! I got my first tattoo back in 2010 whilst travelling around the world! I'm heavy into my music and also a band from back home who some of you may know, Parkway Drive!

I was seeing them at a festival stopover in Scotland called the "Never Say Die" tour with the likes of Emmure, Your Demise, We Came as Romans etc and anyway, I had been so keen to get a tattoo mostly because i was on the other side of the world and i wanted something to reflect on as my time away...

So anyway long story short a song off Parkway Drive's album Deep Blue is a track called "unrest" with the chorus repeating "Retrace the Steps"

So I thought a fair long while about it and stupidly went to the nearest parlour in Glasgow called "Eclectic Ink" and pretty much told them and they managed to squeeze me in later that arvo, I got it on my ankle with an ellipsis after the word steps. Don't regret it at all, all i do regret was not researching studios and the artists, however the artist who did it, Nadia Alnassiri turned out to be a lovely gal and a great tattooist! Don't regret it at all and it still looks as good as the day she did it!

So yeah, that's my intro! I have a couple of questions regarding my next piece as well, but i might shoot them off after a welcome hah!

Fuck yeah dude that's what I like to here, a true fan! I've got a couple of Q's regarding a foot tattoo and the healing process because i play a lot of sport, so the question is...with healing taking its toll on the foot would you maybe wait til the season is over because of breathabilty/sweat etc?

    • 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.
