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!

    • Hello all! New member here, I recently moved to LA so I am debating whether to try out a new artist for my next tattoo or to just stick with my normal tattoo artist who is only about 2 hours away. I've attached my previous two from him for reference and I'm looking to get a shrunken head next. I've been pretty happy with both tattoos I've gotten from him but know there are tons of incredible artists nearby to choose from as well. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.
    • Everyone's backs look amazing!   I've had a little work done since August, next session is Saturday.
