New to LST and Tattoos!

Recommended Posts


I'm a newbie but a long time tattoo enthusiast. I have yet to get my first tattoo but am looking to get that soon and hit the ground running. I already have many plans/ideas for tattoos but joined this site in order to get insight and recommendations from other people who know tattoos best.

Looking forward to learning a lot and to start covering my body in art!

Actually, if anyone is feeling up to dishing out some advice right now I need some help!

One of the tattoos I am looking to get is my family coat of arms. Being a female I'm not quite sure where the best place on my body to get this done is. Obviously the back in between the shoulder blades is a good spot but I'm unsure as to whether or not I want to reserve that spot for a different tattoo I might get down the road. So where else would be a good spot for this??

Welcome! Well, if you are thinking of doing more than one, then putting something right in the middle of your back, if it isn't really nice and big, will prevent you from using that great real estate at a later time. However, the only place I've ever seen one on a female is where you've stated. Why not upper arm?

    • 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.
