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 ..

    • I commissioned this from Yoni Zilber! Just saw it reposted on a new page called Tattoo Love Care, https://www.instagram.com/ttt_l_c/, created by @blackclaw @tttism @zacscheinbaum. Their description is "Aid-Promote-Educate. A place to help tattooers in need and discover new artists, causes and events." Check it out!
    • Hello, I'm new to the site and looking for some advice. Thanks in advance for any help. I'm just trying to get a second opinion. So I have a few tattoos, mostly all done by the same artist. A very well known shop and artist in the area. Iv never had this issue before with any other tattoos. But started a sleeve back in January and my last session was 4 weeks ago. My arm just finished peeling from the last session and half of the ink did not stay in my arm. Everything else that has been done looks fine except the top of my arm. I sent pics to the artist and he said it must of been the ink he used as I didn't not do anything different then I usually do during the healing process. He said he can go back over it but then our state got shut down due to covid19. So now the shop won't open back up until God knows when. It doesn't hurt,itch or is swollen or anything it just looks like pink/damage skin. I was just trying to get a second opinion that this can be fixed. Should I have to worry about anything between now and when I can get it fixed.  Thanks again David.
