Dropping a stone in the well...

Recommended Posts

Hi there - I'm Lia, and I figured it was finally time to stop lurking. I've been crazy about tattoos since I was tiny - I'm 27 now - but I just haven't had the funds to get the work I wanted and so stayed away from staring at tattoos/thinking about tattoos/talking about tattoos as much as I possibly could (it was too much of a temptation). I'm hoping that now is the right time to finally, finally get to work on some of my plans.

So far I only have two pieces: a nine year old quote on my right forearm which may/may not end up covered up (depends on how sentimental I'm feeling that day), plus the Narnia lamppost illustration (forest, snow, the whole thing) on my calf. Right now I'm not sure if I want my next tattoo to be a lady head or more black-line illustrations on my leg; I guess it depends on what the waiting lists are like with the artists I choose.

No pictures yet, since my poor old quote tattoo isn't worth the pixels and the lamppost is still pretty fresh, but hopefully I'll have something to show for myself soon.

Thanks guys, I'm glad to finally be jumping in here. There will definitely be pictures of the lamppost soon - I'm almost 100% happy with it, and it's healing up nicely.

what and who by are you considering next? Where are you located

I'm in BC, Canada and I'm still making some decisions, both about the designs and the artists. For the lady head I'm almost 100% sure I want to go for Chris Hold, but I still want to do a little more digging first and finalize some thoughts before I make a move. The black illustrations are a different thing altogether... it's a newer idea so I'm still playing with how I want it to be laid out, and since they're going to be pretty direct copies I'm not as fussed about who I'm going to get them from as long as they're solid. I still need to decide what illustrations I'm going to get anyway - I know I want the white stag from Narnia to go with my lamppost, but I'm going to dig through my books to find some more ideas. (Here's the original lamppost illustration to give an idea of the style I'm going to have going.)

Thanks! Whenever I look at his work I end up feeling like a cat watching birds just outside the window, so I'd definitely be stoked to get something from him, whether that ends up being a lady head or one of my other plans.

Welcome! I completely agree with @kelzu about Chris Hold. I have a little tattoo from him and not only does he do nice tattoos, he's a really great guy. I totally recommend the experience and he would do an excellent lady head.

    • 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.
