Allis - Rural Ohio

Recommended Posts

I Stumbled on this forum looking for alternative after-care advice, I stayed because...tattoos.

My name is Allis, have several smaller pieces by local artists (most of which I still like). I am set to be tattooed by Hoffa at Hell City Columbus this Friday, May 1 and I am very excited. It will eventually turn into (hopefully) a floral half sleeve by various and sundry artists. I'll post pictures as soon as I'm not on my work computer.

Thanks for listening. Look forward to participating more.

Thanks for this forum in general, and in specific the info on Tegaderm everyone has posted. I am thinking of using it. I am on an immunosuppresant and think it might be helpful for keeping things sterile. I have had a tattoo since I started the meds, and I healed well, but you can never be too safe.

I've never been to Hell City but I love the opportunity to get a piece from an artist I really admire without having to drive all the way to FL.

Ohioan? That is the first time I have ever heard a Buckeye called an Ohioan! (And, I was born North of Columbus in Mt. Vernon)

Hmmmm...I would say that it's a term in general usage. Plus, my Dad, brother & sister are Buckeyes. I'm Miami.

Wow. What a small world. I guess I'll post a picture of the piece I got at Hell City. It's been a while since I've added a picture to a forum. Let's see if I can still do it...

I consider myself an Ohioan. My dad, who is from West Virginia, considers me a Buckeye.

I consider it the start of a half sleeve. I am in love with it.

To the poster who mentioned Mt. Vernon, that's where I live. I am in a creative profession which allows me to do what I want tattoo-wise. I work in radio.

I guess Mercy Hospital (now gone, I believe) was the nearest to Centerburg (we had a farm near there). We moved to Kentucky when I was almost 8 (~1960). Great neighbors on the farms around there. I still remember their warmth and helpfullness. I have vivid memories of neighbors helping dad plant corn one year, try to beat a storm we could see rolling in.

That's funny. Mercy Hospital is now part of the courthouse annex (where my husband works, coincidentally). He was born there too!

It is a nice community, if a bit judgmental. I have been treated well.

    • So the tattoo I have is a fairly small-med size on my sternum and currently I have a saniderm on and taking a week's rest and my artist said I could take it off after 4 days.  I was thinking when I go back  because I wear a sports bra. Do I put tegaderm back on just in case? Or by a week it's okay to leave it. Same question for my rib tattoo which got a touch up before I got my sternum. Do I put tegaderm on for the week that I start the gym or its fine for a sports bra and sweating now. A little more context I do mostly weights and functional workouts.
    • After taking the wrapping and bandages off. It’s complete, however you can tell the areas that have healed versus fresh ink. Looking forward to it completely healing and settling in.   Hard to get the whole thing in one picture. I’ll get better ones once healed.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk  
    • I could see this working with the right artist. Right white blue, and then for the ducks green brown blue (depending on the type). I'd be less worried about the colors than the amount of imagery/number of images. Generally less is more. But I could totally see a flag rip on the upper arm, and a duck/water OR baseball scene on the lower. All three on one arm (if I've read you correctly) seems really difficult. Everything's down to finding the right artist though.
