Just thought I would drop a quick note to let people know a little about me:

Live in the MPLS area of Minnesota

39 years old

First tattoo at age 18

Have a chest panel and a half sleeve on one side, with a few other decorations scattered around my body

Currently undergoing some laser to open up my options for future art

Why am I here? Tattoos in my opinion are a great expression of peoples likes, thoughts, dreams, fantasies, goals, etc, etc and talking about them, looking at them and offering each other advice is a ton of fun for me and very interesting.

Although I got my first tattoo 21 years ago, I had a tattoo epiphany about 7 years ago. I woke up one day and realized that tattoos are literally artwork and not just someone coloring in and outlining a design. I have gained a huge level of respect for artists and the power of tattoos. After hearing people come in and talk with an artist while I was getting tattood or on a break, they would really badger the artist about what they specifically wanted and they were really unwilling to be flexible.

I learned that they are artists and can tell you if something will work or will look like crap, take there advice they are professionals. Anyone who simply slaps whatever tattoo you have in mind on your body without a care as to what it will look like is not doing you justice.

I have come a long way.....and still have a long way to go.

    • 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.
