Hi from St. Louis

Recommended Posts

I've been lurking for aftercare for a while. I am thirty #>^*£! (37 :) ) and I've just healed my first tattoo.

This is my botanical print wood sorrel, still a little weepy from the first time it was washed.

Simple but lovely. When's the next one?

Well... U2 tickets go on sale today for next summer. He and I both want U2 related tattoos (he wants an engineering diagram of an atomic bomb, and I'm playing with refraction/reflection in drops of water). I hadn't intended to make this my next, but the opportunity to take a road trip and get it done in Chicago after the concert, on my birthday, is just too much to pass up.

I have tickets for both Sunday and Monday concerts, have a hotel room booked, and train tickets home on the 30th have been purchased.

I don't think I can cram a tattoo into this trip? I've been looking at Deluxe Tattoo (Ryan Flaherty specifically), but I 1) don't want a time constrained tattoo from an artist I've been following on the internet, and 2) don't want to go to two concerts / ride public transportation / walk all over the Loop with a fresh 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.
