Hi everybody! I found this forum about a week ago, liked what I was seeing/reading and decided to join the group. Currently in Idaho I enjoy adventuring (mountaineering/rock/ice climbing), love good music and of course rad tattoos. When it comes to tattoos I'm relatively new having only a handful...but there's always more on the list! Definitely like the bold, strong traditional style tattoos I've seen here. Looking forward to seeing everything there is to see here and contribute when there might be topics in my lane.

I'll see if I can post a picture or two of my latest tattoo (done yesterday) of an indian girl on my side.

Let's see if this posts correctly...

Pic was taken just a few hours after it was done (thus the red and swollen look). Definitely not an easy place to take a picture of as she kinda wraps around my side. Anyway, I'll be going back in a few weeks for color and shading, cant wait! This one was done by Jon at Devotion Tattoo in Boise.

I'm in Boise also. I need to check out Devotion. I went there last Sunday but they were closed. This looks like it's going to turn out really nice.

Hey there. We are open 7 days a week usually from 11-6. Thursday-Sat we try and stay as late as need be to get all the walk ins done. Sunday is a short day from 12-6. It's highly possible we just stepped out for lunch, sorry we missed you. Hope you make it back around!

    • 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.
