Recommended Posts

From the looks of it, I would advise people to save their money for the Bay Area Convention of the Tattoo Arts in October. When this show landed in Portland, I told people if you want to watch a bunch of scantily clad women (who doesn't) and douchebags with one tattoo and their shirts off walking around, this might be your party, but if you are looking to get tatttooed there is better avenues. But that being said I do love a good trainwreck, if you do go, please share the details.

so I ended up going to the show(I really had planned on going already :D ) ,I did'nt see any brawls ! LOL :rolleyes: actually it was a pretty cool friendly event,I met up with a friend that was getting work from Jess on Saturday too.

the best thing was a friend notified me two weeks before and told me that Jess Yen had a last minute opening,so I ended up getting an 8 hour one shot piece from Jess on Friday !

it's still healing so I will post pics when it's done . it's a B&G tiger standing on a skull from my armpit to my ass.

here is the original art he drew for me & my body size & weight ,he signed it and dated it for me.

Were you told to remove your bandage after 3 days? When I removed mine you see the boarders of the bandage. Almost looks like a tan line. It's been three weeks and it's a lot lighter but still you can see it. I was just curious if this is just my experience with this style of bandage..

ya,it looked like a sunburn where the saniderm was,hurt like hell taking it off too ! and yes,I kept it on for 3 days,it's been 2 weeks now and the red from the saniderm is finally gone,it did last a while though,but it sure was easier than any other aftercare I have used,I like it,no sticky aquafor,etc,etc especially on my side.

Thanks for the info i have super sensitive skin and was worried that it would be there forever like a scar. It's been three weeks for me and hasn't gone away completely.. Then again the ribs have always been a slower healing area for me. My other side healed completely in 2 months ..

    • 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.
