Hello from Nova Scotia!

Hello folks of LST!

Allow me to introduce myself. I go by GeeDubayou. I am a 28 year old living in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I am currently in the process of pondering getting a series of tattoos.

I am a blank slate at the moment and in doing research, I've also wanted to join a forum or two and converse with tattoo artists and those who enjoy getting tattoos. I have 0 tattoos and 0 piercings.

My first series of tattoos I want to get is to commemorate my childhood. I was born in 1984 and grew up in the golden age of Super Mario, and the great side scrolling games of the 90s. And to pay homage to my childhood, I want to get a series of tattoos of various Super Mario characters on my arm, and possibly other characters too.

So, if you have any recommendations or any wisdom to impart in regards to first tattoos please feel free to say hi and leave me some wisdom!

Thank you!

The Super Mario games are the best ever! I get to play some of them pretty regularly with my 4 year old on our Wii.

For advice on your first tattoos: look at lots and lots of good tattoos (this is a good place to do that!) and then start researching artists.

Welcome to forum!

    • 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.
