Hi Everyone! I Got My First Tattoo Today.

Recommended Posts

Nice to meet everyone. I've just stepped foot into the tattoo world. I got my first tattoo yesterday at Vagrant Souls in Brooklyn. Awesome, awesome place.

At the moment, I am using a thin layer of Aquaphor after rinsing with soap. I'm assuming I should switch to lotion after a few days?

Also I realize this might not have been the best place for a first tattoo but it was a spur of the moment type thing, lol. YOLO

Also, those are chinese characters which translates to "Love Parents"

Anyway, nice to meet everyone!

That was pretty reckless. I can respect that.

I'm Asian too and around the same age. Unless you're one of those Asians that look like they're 20 when they're actually 35. Also from New York.

dude how did your parents react?

Haha.. man, the thought of getting a tattoo popped into my head and I literally went to do it right after. I'm sort of a see things through type of person. And no, I'm 18 haha.

My parents? Well, my parents got divorced so I only had to face the wraith of my mom. She was kind of accepting which was kind of weird since she had told me in the past to never get a tattoo.

I am also new to the forums. That's cool that you went for a placement like that for your first tattoo. Hopefully going to get my first in a few months.

Yeah thanks man. Good luck on yours!

Welcome bud!

It's pretty tame for a neck tattoo, so your future is still bright as long as you work hard.

Now you've popped the tattoo cherry, go get some body work haha

Just don't get a grenade on your hand as the next tattoo otherwise I will flame you

@TheAsian,

Been so young a neck tattoo was definitely a bold move. Here in Houston, Police officers must hide their tattoos and to my understanding neck tattoos are not allowed period. I could be wrong but this is what I got from my neighbor who is HPD Investigator. This type of tattoos I called "Life changing decisions" :D and I am not there yet.... I do applause you to take such bold move.

At any rate, Its cool and for sure different for your first tattoo! don't listen to me nor others, You do what you like and what makes you happy... :)

I'd probably go with worried to be honest. I'm looking at a career in law enforcement too, and most places will not even allow half sleeves. Neck and below the elbow are no go. However, it probably makes sense to research the departments around you's rules. Most of them are easy to find on google.

Very gutsy, I respect it. Like others said though, it might hurt a little in the future.

Related question- I thought most shops don't tattoo hands/neck/face on people who aren't decently covered?

    • I went to the original post and pointed out the misspelling. They took the post down and said they were warning me not to reshare it. Yikes. Hope you can get the misspelling fixed somehow, OP. Oh, lord. Now the poor tattoo artist is threatening me with a lawyer. Even though I used her original caption and tagged her in it. 🤣
    • Is that word supposed to be whisper? I hope I am just reading it incorrectly ... 😬
    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
