G'day from DownUnder

Recommended Posts

Hello LST members,

My name's Libby, I'm a young 54 year old woman living in Central New South Wales (NSW), Australia.

I got my first tattoo on my 50th birthday; yes, you could say it was part of my mid life crisis - I divorced the other part earlier this year! :)

Anyhow, the reason I've joined this forum is because I want to get another tattoo and I was hoping I might find some budding, keen artists who can fine tune the artwork.

More on that soon.

Gotta go; my son has just dropped in.

Back again.

My first tattoo (and only one so far) is just a small symbol of the Gemini star sign on my ankle.

I'm not into big lavish tats; just small meaningful (to me) ones.

Come to think of it, I'm the only one in my family that has a tattoo. Even my grandparents didn't have one (that I know of).

Hi Libby!

Welcome!

As a rule, the members here will be glad to point you in the direction of a good tattooer, and then suggest that you take your ideas to them and let them do their job with it :)

That's why they make the big bucks, right? ;)

Mmm, not sure what I'm doing wrong here as far as posting the image. I put it in my gallery and used that URL :confused:

Hi else,

Thanks for the info. As as newbie, not really sure how it works. Last (and first) time, I just showed them exactly what I wanted, and thought that's what you do. But then I guess they are the artist (definitely not me) and know how to make the best looking tattoo.

    • 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.
