lace tattoo


Recommended Posts

So, I promised my cousin that I'd pay for her first tattoo on her 18th birthday as a gift, since she's like a little sister to me.

The good thing is I get to chose her artist so I know she'll be getting quality work done, the bad thing is that she might be dead set on getting a lace-like tattoo style done.

The picture provided is the one she showed me and she wants something close to that. The thing I'm worried most about this is the longevity of the tattoo since it's mostly just lines very close to each other, I don't want her to end up with a huge blob of black ink on her arms later down the road and regret it lol

So any advice of this style of tattoo would be nice and any recommendations of artists in the midwest would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

A good tattooist can make such a tattoo last, but a great tattooist won't get the lines too close together (providing long-term clarity). Your example above it pretty tight-knit - a little more than I'd want to receive . . .

I'm not familiar with anyone in the mid-west who "specializes" in fine lacework, but there probably is a dozen or so who could pull it off.

    • 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.
