First Tattoo Story

Recommended Posts

There I was in Budapest February 2010 cold as all hell having taken 14 days off from my fun fun job contracting in Iraq. I met my sweet NJ flight attendant in Budapest and we fucked like rabbits for a few days, drank like fish too. Before she was due to leave (she only had 5 days of vacation time) I was getting tattoo fever pretty bad. I had researched what I wanted (Einstein) and was pretty confident of which portrait of Einstein I wanted. I did some research about tattoo studios in Budapest and the only one that made any sense was Celtic Moon. They're in the heart of Budapest tourist country but very well reviewed. I went for a visit and the studio was very clean, open, and colorful. My tattoo artist didn't really speak any English but I showed him what I wanted. Unlike US studio's Celtic Moon didnt really have a privacy rule so I had this dude looking at me from 3 feet away sizing up my new tattoo. He has this large piece on his left arm that was of a Native American dreamcatcher, and one his right arm was a Native American war chief. All pretty cool considering he was Hungarian lol. After my artist was done I was very happy and a little sore from the work.

    • 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.
