Im a tattooer fron Antigua Guatemala, central America, i've been tattooing since '98, Tattooing in the middle of third world chaos, true. When i start to think about tattoos was in the beggining of the '90, wizards, winged dragons and tribals, thank u Mr Zuleta. So in that time i got my first home made scratch tattoo in my arm, in the kitchen friend house, in the time was only one shop for tattoos with only one tattooer working in that time, i got my second tattoo there, was maybe '93. So time after that i met this tattooer from canada James Collier who came with his partner Michael Elias, who was the guy who teach Uncle Allan, years later. Well when i was hang out with this guys i didnt thought about tattooing, was time before James gave me a machine, an old Mickey shapz. So years later they left and michael went to Daenmark and james back to canada. So i was here in my house with a tattoo machine... i can start to make a small ones i thought .. and indeed i made few on my friends, why buy pig meat if u have friends, lol. I rent a small apartment cause i wanted to move from my parents, and i used one room for the tattoo thing, then one day i leave the door open, and one day i have to open one room only for tattooing, next days i have to use the half of my apt for tattooing, we had a small tattoo shop there. Time later was the second expo tattoo in the city, guatemala. i met there Hiram Cordero from Costa Rica, who was the apprentice of Tony Morell MOra, a guy from panama who lives in Maryland area, jinks proof shop etc. I moved to costa rica in that time to learn more with Hiram Cordero, time there then came back to antigua guatemala, work few years more and i met Art Escobar in front of my shop, a guatemala guy who grow and raise in Maryland baltimore. we became friends and biz partners couple of times. In the last years i've been traveling to 7 countries in America and 6 countries in Europe, always tattooing. So this is the Hello and small resume who i am, a tattooer. SALUD!!!!

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
