Jimmy is here

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm Jim from Germany. Im currently 17 but I'll turn 18 very very soon! Once I turn 18 I was planning to get a tattoo on my left pec. I want it to be a symbol I created surrounded by a fire circle. In black, I dont want any color.

I love tattoos and wanted to learn more about them, get some ideas here etc. Thats why I joined.

But about my tattoo. I was gonna ask if I should wait a while. I think Ive reached my final height now but I will probably get wider. I also started to lift weights and gain some weight. Im only 125 pounds! Will my tattoo stretch a lot if I get it on my left pec and over time I'll get wider and more muscular?

Nice to be here guys.

Obviously this is entirely your decision, but since you asked: I would wait. Not necessarily because of the reasons you listed, but so you have time to really think about the tattoo. This isn't something you want to rush into. Get to know some artists' work (in your area and abroad), look for inspiration not just on the internet but in tattoo shops, books, etc. Then go and get the tattoo.


EDIT: Oh, and welcome to LST!

    • There's nothing wrong with it. Don't worry. Just enjoy it.
    • It's healing. It won't fully heal for 4 to 6 weeks. Just let it heal and don't smother it with anything.
    • Hi! So I got my first tattoo ten days ago. They are fine line tulips and they are so beautiful. The thing is, it's kinda getting darker, darkening the delicate the details of ir too. Is this normal? I always heard the tattoo Will go lighter as it heals but it's being the opposite for me. It has pretty much flaked off completely so i'm scared it might be the way this heals and thats it. Please help. Here are some pics The first is right after I got it and the second one is now.  Also something yo know I put the film to sleep for like 2 more nights after I got it which later I ask my artista and he Say I really shouldn't xD could this have some influencia on how it's looking now? Thanks for the help
