Hello peeps

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say that I think this site is great. I hope it continues to grow more. It's nice to see a lot of friendly and open minded artist and collectors having good discussions. A little about me. I'm an EMT, saving lives for a living ;). I'd love to be tattooing for a living. I'm in the middle of a bit of an unusual apprenticeship. I live in SC, which just recently passed a law to allow tattooing in the state. The county I live in however has not agreed to allow tattooing. So, I'm kinda part time and do a lot from home in conjuction with my artist, that works in GA. It's taking longer, but hopefully it'll work out and I can jump into actually working on people and get into a shop. I've gotten a lot of negative comments from others sites, because I'm "not 100% dedicated" in their eyes. Anyways, I'm looking forward to jumping in some great discussions, and getting to know everybody.

The tattoo conversations have been fun plus a nice balance of positive & construct criticism since the site was launched. Also some of the quality of tattoo pictures plus everything else tattooers and tattoo collectors have been contributing has been great. Thanks for joining us and hope you'll enjoy it as much as we have.

    • Tattooist's personalities vary just like the regular population, so how they might react is more known to you than us, assuming you've already had a personal consultation.  More than 9 times out of 10 you're drawing isn't even started 3 weeks in advance.  Go and visit the artist, if it's feasible - and express the above. E-mail should be a workable option, too. 
    • Hi  not sure if I'm hijacking a thread here ,newbie. Can anyone tell me the meaning of this tattoo . Very unusual. Thanks
    • Hi, I've got an appointment in 3 weeks time but I've been having thoughts about changing the design. I thought I was dead set on what I wanted but then I wasn't sure about size and placement as I thought I wanted it smaller but my initial design wouldn't look great smaller. I've just thought of another design that would work smaller. Also as this is a tattoo for my son I feel this new design is more indicative of our bond so I want to feel completely happy on a personal level that I choose a tattoo that reflects our bond best. Im just frustrated with myself that id never thought of this idea before as if I had, I would've gone with this rather than changing my mind. As a tattoo artist, would you feel annoyed about having to change design 3 weeks in advance? How likely is it that you would have drawn the original idea up this far in advance? Im happy to pay a bit more if she has already drawn it and therefore needs more time to redraw new design, ive already paid £100 deposit so not sure how much more generally I'd need to pay. I know every artist is different though.
