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.

Well...what brings me to this site is, my wanting to get my first tattoo, and in doing research, I found this site and joined up.

Looking for any info and advice for a tattoo virgin. :) lol

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!

    • Hello all! Stoked to be to be a part of this awesome community after lurking around for a bit haha  I joined this forum because of all the great advice and support people have been receiving in their post. You guys rock!   Recently, I just got a dragon done with mainly black scales, with yellow/gold and orange to compliment the scales. However, I realized that I don't really like the yellow and orange and want to do a red to dark red or maroon dragon. Is it possible to tattoo dark red or maroon over the yellow/gold and orange? How complex would it be? Any cons to this? Another thing to mention is that not all scales are fully colored in with the yellow and orange (all the black is done already). Would the colors be slightly different for the ones I'm replacing over vs the ones that haven't been filled in yet? Thanks!  
    • Hey.  I have this on my hand and I want to blend it with the rest of the tattoo. There will be some more tattoos in the white bits above it but I need an idea on how I can merge the armband with the rest through a background or something. And also I'd like to have some sort of an ending on my forearm. I was thinking of a mandala design but not sure. Some gradient from the armband down into the mandala tattoo. If you have any suggestions please let me know.  https://imgur.com/a/AICbRo1
    • It just hurts, but it’s more deeper. It comes and goes, never consistent. Usually when I wake up or go to bed when I haven’t washed it yet or have put lotion on. Sometimes it still gets irritated. According to my artist, it has healed nicely. I’m wondering if it’s an allergic reaction or the way I would position my arm when I would sleep for the past month to avoid damage to the tattoo. Sorry, I really don’t know how to explain it properly
