Another Introduction

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am a middle aged female, from Minnesota. I am not an artist but someone with bad tattoos, in the planning phase of my, hopefully beautiful, cover up. I'm here to get as much advice as possible so I don't make another mistake.

Welcome! Do you have an artist lined up yet? I recomend checking out Josh Arment at The Aloha Monkey. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.352660617569.155993.352646707569&type=3

I do have someone in mind but I haven't met with him yet. He had to put a freeze on his books last spring and isn't making new appointments till Aug. Good sign, right? I will check out this guy though, thanks!

Definatly want to do your homework. I would browse e every tattoo artist portfolio in your area and set up consultations with a few artists and see which one works out the best for you! !

Yes, I have been. The trouble is, I live three hours north of the twin cities, where most of the good shops are, so it's hard to get to many consultations.

I have considered maybe going to a convention as a possible way of fitting more consultations in one day. Of course I know nothing about how conventions work. Is that a possibility, or are conventions mainly for artists?

Tattoo conventions are for anybody interested in tattoos, and I think going to one is a great idea because you'll get not only to see plenty of people's portfolios and their tattoos in person and in one place, but you can talk to tattooers and get their opinions on your cover up, you can get a sense of their personality and so on. You can get tattooed too if you want.

Thanks for the welcome. I have been pretty lazy lately reading all of the fascinating things on this forum. I have learned all sorts of new terminology, like flash, and whipshading stretch marks, and warped tour body suit. Speaking of which, I had no idea the label hipster was an insult. I guess I didn't know what a hipster was... Maybe I still don',t but I do know now why my brother was less than enthused about me using the term to describe him once.

    • Nothing on hand, but it seems like a cool idea. 
    • Any cool pirannha tattoos out there? Please don't tell me "instagram" "google" "pinterest" or anything like that. I'm considered getting an outline of a piranha skull in lime green and dark purple (artist would be free to play with the idea) to symbolism me getting over my cancer (green and purple are the colors). Would love to see some inspirational pictures :)
    • I am experiencing the very same thing currently. Been searching all over to find out what and why. I found this and it is exactly what I’m experiencing. The only difference is I have quite a few tattoos and it is only happening with one and only on the first word. Weird it wouldn’t be the whole tattoo. I will be scheduling an appointment with my dermatologist for sure. This is very worrisome. My tattoo is about 6 months old and no issues up until 2 days ago. Crazy. I hate it.
