Hi yall~

The Doctor is in! I'm new round these parts, but this seems like a great community. I've just gotten into ink in the last coupla years, and have (as of yesterday) four tattoos: three on my left arm and one (the new one) on my right calf. It's a quick and beautiful life, why spend it fearing your body and all the great things it can do?

I'm currently kickin' it in Memphis, TN, eagerly awaiting the birth of my first child, and feeling better than I ever have before!

I got my first tattoo March of last year. I was en route to home from NOLA and called ahead to a Memphis parlor after unsuccessfully attempting to have my tattoo done in Louisiana. I got it that night when I rolled back into Memphis; it reads "breathe" on my left forearm. It came out perfect, and I've had the fever ever since.

The transformative power of a little tiny bit of ink boggles my mind. The needles hit your skin and... bam! Your arm or leg of foot or back or lip or face or neck is transformed, for the rest of your life! It makes me mindful of that simultaneously eternal and fleeting quality of life and of the body....

Anyhow, it's good to be here and I look forward to gettin' to know yall.

Cheerio, and remember:

~It's never to late to have a happy childhood~

    • 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.
