new in town and japanese sleeve

Recommended Posts

So I've been lurking for a couple months while trying to decided on my fourth tattoo and ideas for future ones. Read some good things, saw some good things so I thought I'd make an account.

Just got this one on Halloween, my fourth one. My reward for losing 40 pounds.


Also got a Snaggletooth on left bicep with born to lose above, live to win below, a white trash gorilla to the right of that, and a spiderweb/4 leaf clover band around my right elbow, a spider and wrapped up guy in the webbing.

Gonna spend the winter planning out a Japanese sleeve for my upper right arm/shoulder/maybe down onto my chest.

Got some books coming tomorrow to help with that, Bushido and Tattoos of the Floating World by Takahiro Kitamura, and The Japanese Tattoo by Sandi Fellman. Any other books that might be worth looking up or good posts around here I might have missed, or good websites?

In the meantime looking for an idea for my outside forearm. Wanna get the big areas of my left arm before I start filling in with smaller ones but I have a hundred smaller ideas and am lost as far as bigger pieces.

    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
    • it looks fine, let it heal for 4 to 6 weeks , when you are breathing, moving, trying to get a pic, it's going to look off, crooked, whatever, it's on a human  body ! relax, like I said, it looks great. it looks  straight to me.
    • Hello  So 3 days ago i got done my tattoo. All seemed fine till today. I removed the tattoo protection sticker and i noticed its uneven! In my opinion its not written in one straight line. What annoys me the most is the last word ‚heart‘. Its so off the line and now i dont know what to do! Can i fix that or will it go back into line when healed? Please help me out..
