Hello from canada, need opinions on new tatoo


Recommended Posts

hello from vancouver, I have been lurking for the last few days and decided I should make an intro post. At 29 I decided to get my first tattoo of my dog about 2 weeks ago. Healing part was ok except for one night while sleeping I subconsciously decided it was a good idea to scratch the living hell out my itchy arm :( In the moment the size looked good but now it feels abit small on my big arms (but on the bright side, room for more ink on that arm). Here it is: French Bulldog by Karl Marks

I would love some opinions on my next tattoo on my other arm (3/4 sleeve)

For years I always wanted a tattoo of the monkey king sun wukong but didn't end up doing it various reasons until I saw a tattoo by Adam Sky and I was floored, it was everything I envisioned and more. http://i.imgur.com/h83x597.jpg

Turns out he is available and I will be flying down for a consultation + first sitting in about a month. I know getting the same design done is a nono so my question is what do you guys think I should do in terms of design. Ideally i would love to have the monkey king and foo dog.

Currently these are the reference materials I will be bringing to the consultation

Monkey king reference material

As for my big arms, should I add in an oni mask inner bicep or would that clash since japanese vs chinese styles

    • Back at the shop yesterday to see Andrew (he did my most of my leg stuff plus a few others). Webs either side of my sternum heart. Once we finished, he said he will see how it heals and do some touch ups- and that we need sowing above the daggers to balance it. I suggested a mini Web, so we're going with that. Will be living in wire-free bras for a bit (material is softer so less irritation) while healing. I had to laugh , no bra and you can't even see the webs 🤣. Thanks kids and gravity.  I've booked a weekday with Kyle in August for my elbow, but I have an opportunity to teach so looks like I need to shuffle my elbow appointment yet again. I'm going to see if I can't get in earlier in the month.  Anyway, super happy with the webs, I fully expected to hate my life choices but it was one of the easiest ones yet. The bottoms of the mermaids sucked way more. This was just lots of vibrations. Happy days!
    • @rabbitrok @Dan , yeah can't go wrong with flowers! I have some little blossoms and the roses with more flowers to come. But I still stand by the skulls 💀 😍
    • "Friday the 13th tattoo" refers to a tradition where tattoo shops offer special deals on the 13th of the month if it falls on a Friday. Originating from the association of Friday the 13th with bad luck, this event has become a popular date for getting tattoos, often featuring spooky or superstitious themes. Tattoo enthusiasts and newcomers alike take advantage of discounted prices, typically $13 plus a $7 tip, totaling $20. The designs are usually pre-drawn flash tattoos, small and simple. This event combines fun, superstition, and art, making it a unique cultural phenomenon in the tattoo community.
