New girl from Canada

Recommended Posts

Hello there, I am new to this site and have found so much valuable information! I am from Canada and new to tattoos. What brought me to this site is my battle with my cover up, I made a HUGE mistake and covered a small light tattoo and the results were not good. I won't go into the details, and will eventually post pictures. I am in the process of laser removal, just completed my 7th session on May 11th. The tattoo placement is on my upper back between my shoulder blades. It is a dark design with windbars, and 2 purple lotus flowers. I am hopeful for the removal to allow for another attempt at a cover up. I have learned my lesson well, however feel that I did my homework before getting my cover up, just think our thoughts didn't match up. He also admitted to having a "bad day" and because of that I am wearing his bad art. I have gone over in my head hundreds of times how I could have avoided this, but other than not going with my gut feeling that day I think I did my homework well, it just did't work out. His portfolio was great, he was confident and worked at a very reputible shop, I think where I went wrong is I allowed him to much freedom and he didn't understand me. Anyways, enough about that....what is done is done.

I'm from Victoria as well! I hope to move back there. Wrist tattoo hey, I love those! Well you are doing the right thing before jumping into a tattoo. They are a commitment and you must pick the one that will be right for you for the rest of your life. I jumped into a back piece and was influenced by the artist too much, I didn't stick to my gut, and now I am in a big mess. I thought I was smarter than that, but I looked at him as the professional and he knew what was needed to cover my little tattoo...but he messed up! Don't rush in, take your time, and pick the right person. Best of luck!

    • 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)
