Yet another Noobie

Recommended Posts


My name is Bethany, I've been looking around and I figured if i ever needed real advice i better associate with actual people.

You can only look at so many pictures and draw so many variations.

I'm 21, 22 next week, Woot! I have a beautiful little Ginger named Alice after Alice in Wonderland who was my insperation for my first tattoo.

I currently have 2 tattoos and I'm working on a few more right now. I am strictly a tattooie, and not a tattooer. I mostly joined for advice on ideas

which is possibly lame but didn't know how else to get advice with out pestering the local tatttooist.

Ummm, I love history? and playing video games? and if I could I would have tattoos that played music. LOL!!! that would be awesome!

I guess that's it. Nice to be here!

Thanks guys. I love tattoos. Even looking at others i find them fascinating, but my problem is that I think i put way too much thought into it. what i think looks great on someone

I would never attempt to get so i end up just not getting anything. The only reason i got the 2 i have is bc I'd wanted them for like ever after having a kid i wanted to do something a little crazy.

I would be covered in ink if i had enough courage to say f*uck it.

But right now my biggest dilemma is between a tree or a phoenix on my back. Not for some super deep meaningful life representation blah blah but bc they are both themes to the best book ever. I already have something there so it would be building on it. but I'm really serious about not having super cliche skanky tattoos. And unfortunately around the hallow of my back so i don't want to go to low.

I already have a tattoo on my shoulder blade for my daughter so it either has to play into it or kinda go around it

The main one that i want the phoenix for is the deathly hallows symbol from Harry Potter. The Triangle with the circle and the line through it. I'm a huge HP fan.

The one on my shoulder is the "drink me" bottle from Alice in Wonderland. That I know what I'm going to do its just ganna take some time to perfect.

I believe that tattooing is a type of art and if you don't give the artist proper creativity its not a true work of art. So I have an idea and as long as it serves its purpose

and is still along the same lines i'm good, and it gives you a unique image that others have but isn't the same flash that's on every tippsy "bad ass" teenager.

    • 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.
