Hi! I just joined this site yesterday to recommend a shop to someone, but I also figured that it could be a helpful resource for me as I move forward with getting more tattoos.

Currently I only have two, both on my ribs. One of them is the result of ignorance about how tattoos work and impulsively wanting a tattoo with "meaning," it's some lyrics in script across one side of my chest. The other is a big spray of flowers on the other side of my chest. I have actually just started the process of getting the lyrics covered up, I'm hoping to end up with more flowers. Not for any deep reason, simply because I like the way the flowers look and because the artist I'm going to is really talented and I really want a piece by her.

Not going to post any photos of my ink because it's pretty identifiable stuff and I don't particularly want to be identified. My goal is to get my cover-up done and then start saving up for a big piece on my thigh. I'm not really into tattoos with "deep" meaning (that's what my lyric tattoo was supposed to be and I have pretty much come to hate it), I really just like the aesthetic of big, colorful, well-executed tattoos.

Anyway, that's about it. I like talking about the experience of being tattooed (it's one of my favorite feelings) and to compare healing techniques, etc. Hope to talk to more people around here over time!

    • 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.
