Better late than never

Recommended Posts

So after years (ok, decades) of contemplating, changing my mind, establishing a career, etc...I'm finally starting my tattoo collection.

Travel has been the catalyst. Maui and San Francisco started things off, and I'm looking forward to London in February.

Thank you to all of the veteran contributors - I'm a research nut and you've been very helpful!

Cool concept

Getting tattoos while traveling allows you to get some very unique experiences from that city/ area.

And it allows you to get work from artists normally out of range

What do you have so far?

@misterJ - I've been trying to get tattoos that somehow reflect the traditional style of the places i visit, so I got a polynesian style maui hook in Hawaii and a traditional eagle from Matt Howse in San Francisco - Matt is an outstanding tattooist an all around great guy.

I'm crossing my fingers that I can get into Frith Street in February.

    • 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.
