New from NH feedback/advice welcome!

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'll start off by saying that I am 26 and have 3 black and grey tattoos totaling about 1.5 hours. I am planning on adding to my left arm where all my tattoos are to make a half sleeve. All my tattoos seem random to a stranger but represent my life and things that have made me who I am, almost like my story so far.

So here's where feedback would be greatly appreciated- Is mixing black&gray work with color pieces a bad idea?

I got into tattoos with black&gray realism but I am currently wanting to continue with traditional color pieces. Thanks!

There are so many different options in terms of color, as well. If you have primarily black and grey and don't want to go straight into big and bright colors, remember you can always look for someone who sticks to using primarily muted and cooler colors.

My father's older tattoos are black and grey with minimal color, sort of what I would call biker traditional (i.e.- screaming eagle in fine line style, etc.). He also has a lot of black and grey from the '90s, but he's grown an appreciation of the traditional American and Japanese styles since I started getting tattooed. He's got a bunch of color pieces filling formerly empty spaces, and they look great. Do what you want to do, just be sure to find a good tattooer.

Thanks for the advice, I think I'm going to just switch it up. I've been thinking of going to Jon Sanford or Luke Davis at Iron Works in Portsmouth, NH. I think they do some really nice and clean looking traditional style work.
