Mexican guy who loves tattoos

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! What's up?!

So let me tell you a little about me, I'm 27 yo, living in Mexico City. I work in a bank but I love tattoos! I would have loved to be a tattoo artist but I don't have the ability to draw so... I limit myself to just admiring them.

As of now I only have one tattoo, I finished it last May (It's the one in my profile pic), I got a dragon coming out of the water, evoking the moment when, according to the legend, the Koi fish reaches the top of the waterfall and stops being a fish to become one of the mightiest creatures in mythology, at least my favorite. I added some Kanji that represent some basic stuff that any person who wants to "become a dragon" and accomplish every goal set will need, the pilars of life, family, friends and an ideology.

So, right now I'm doing some research cause I want to get the other part of the legend that is a Koi fish swimming upstream, I want to get my whole calf covered in a very colorful vibrant tattoo. With a lot of water, flowers and the koi fish. And I'm trying to get a great artist to do it, especially someone who loves doing this kind of tattoos, I really don't care how long it takes or where the artist is or even how much it costs, I'll go over there and get it.

So thats my story...

I'm really excited to be part of this community... and I hope I can learn lots of things about tattoos from you guys!

Welcome! 'Ryukoi' is a great Japanese tattoo. If you going to make it into a bigger piece then I suggest maple leaves for the background. It's a great combination!

    • 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.
