Woman portrait

Recommended Posts

So Saturday I got asked if I I wanted to do a Geo/B&W Realism Portrait for this upcoming expo in SA. I jumped all over it, When I got the details I found that the portrait is of a woman, I still was ok with it...

Well it turns out the wifey is not ok with me getting a woman portrait specially realism and on my thigh. So this AM I had to back out...

I suspect the artist was some what suspicious because he did ask me... Are you ok with a woman portrait?

Shit... I am ok, Is all good with me!

BUT on the mist of discussing the plans for this week end we had the talk of the pieces I am getting up in SA... Than it hits.... Huge argument wish I quickly lost... Than I had to go back and think at one of the things I allways preach about... I am not the only one that is going to look at this for the rest of my life.... So is my wife... So I had to go back to rule number "If the wife is not happy, nobody is"

This one was my fuck up...

I feel horrible and depress.

Not only because I didnt think about my wife but because I possibly fucked up a spot for my artist.

I did told him that I am open for anything else just cant do a womans face... :( :( :(

Sick you were able to keep the spot and change the subject matter!

realism, especially a face.. IMO should be something that you choose, not your artist.. even if you are good with having that work of art, it is a face that would be on you forever, and you did make that a promise to your wife to be with her forever too!

My wife seemed kind of flattered by the cameo of her (of course, it was done from a 34 year old photo). I can kind of understand them not wanting their husband wearing a permanent likeness of some other woman - even if it is a random one.

Don't get me wrong my wife and I love each other very much. 13yrs in to our marriage (not counting our time before) and 3 kids... We both understand that things can happen.

    • So, I got pretty ill — along with the rest of my family — the day after my last tattoo. Fever, snot, puking, the whole lovely picture. 🙂 My artist advised me to stay hydrated, eat healthily, take vitamins, and see what happened, oh, and not to take NSAIDs. Despite this sound advice, the healing process went really weirdly, and now after two weeks, I feel hard scar tissue bits in multiple parts of it. I'm wondering if other folks here have had a similar experience with getting ill right after a tattoo (not "tattoo flu", but just plain old ill), and how their tattoo ended up healing over the long term? 
    • Tattoos certainly don't have to have deep meaning.  If the curious ask you what they mean just tell them "It means I like tattoos". 
    • Don't do anything. Of your original 5 tattoos, you've had two covered up and now you are looking to do even more coverups. This is just a recipe for disaster. Your skin isn't a piece of paper, you can't just keep erasing and starting over. Every time you tattoo, laser or cover up, you are traumatizing your skin and creating more scar tissue. I have two sleeves, back, chest panel and a piece that goes up my right leg to connect with my back/chest. Not a single tattoo has any meaning other than I like the imagery. Just my opinion, but a lot of that 'meaning' nonsense comes from watching too much LA ink and these other tattoo shows where people claim this big long sob story about why they are getting the tattoo.  Take some time, a lot of time, before you do anything; otherwise you're just going to make it worse.
