Isotope

These are all on ONE person.

Recommended Posts

One of the research assistants I work with found out I'm tattooed. Now she enjoys sharing such things with me. This is one of her high school acquaintances from suburban Ft. Worth, who brags and posts instagrams about her sick tatts.

If you think that they are cliche' or poorly done you can friend this gal up, show her what a decent tattoo looks like, and point her towards LST. It's what tattooed Jesus would do.

Maybe she'll broaden her horizons and get different work, maybe not. It is still okay for her to be happy with what she has though.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply SHE shouldn't be happy with them at all. If she's thrilled with them and loves them, more power to her.

My posting them here is directed toward the tattooer and the quality of the work, which really caught me off guard.

The forum sure is going through a weird phase right now. Emotions seem to be running high this week already.

"Let's critique these poorly done and cliche tattoos in the section for poorly done tattoos."

"No fuck you, you might offend someone."

"Hey guys storm is coming, be safe"

"No fuck you, go post worthwhile content."

"No fuck you, I'm out"

"No, please stay. I just wanted to tell you to fuck off but you weren't supposed to be offended by it."

That about sums up what I've read today so far. Yeah yeah, I know, forget all this and lets get back to talking about getting good tattoos. Because this forum only has 1 section, and it's only about that.

I hope this isn't presumptuous, but I get the sense that maybe people are biting their tongues & what's gone unsaid is leaking out in odd ways. There's always been shenanigans on here, from what I can tell, but it was once balanced out by more substantive tattoo talk. I'm newish and probably haven't contributed much beyond YAY TATTOOS though.

The execution of these tattoos does make me squirm, but I don't feel great about calling this person out.

I wonder if this site would benefit from daily or weekly (depending on need) open conversation threads. It seems like there are people here who want to communicate more generally with likeminded others but it's not always clear how to do this. 20 page threads are hard to enter and starting a new thread for a fleeting thought can be awkward and presumptuous.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea or who would/should take it on but it's a thought I have had before and I figured this might be as good of a place as any to bring it up.

I think it's okay, just something in the air.

Perhaps @Isotope could at least recommend to his friends friend that she should not get tattooed in kitchens anymore. It's weird that the text quote looks ok, but the heart with the infinity symbol looks like it went on with a sharpened bic pen.

The tattoos speak for themselves. Did anyone notice the barbell in her lobe? It looks the same size as the one I have for my nipple!

I was worried for a moment that I was the only person here who noticed that her ear piercing and your nipple piercing looked similar.

    • Have an eagle on the back of my arm and some daggers on the side. I plan on doing an all black/grey patchwork sleeve. Wanting ideas for my upper arm as I’m not sure what to get. 
    • try https://saniderm.com/       I use the https://saniderm.com/product/personal-size-10-2-in-x-2-yd-roll/     I have been using it for several years now on many tattoos, and this shit works great !  put it on 24 hours after the tattoo and leave it on for 4 or 5 days, take it off and it's healed.  you can sleep, wear any clothing, shower, whatever with it on. the first 24 hrs after the tattoo I use cocoa butter and saran wrap,wash it with anti-microbial soap every few hours, wash it once more, dry it with clean paper towels, apply the saniderm on clean dry skin. BAM  be sure and carefully shave the area to be tattooed and for several inches around it so the saniderm sticks good.   that's my method, I have been getting tattooed for many many years and have tried EVERYTHING over the years,and IMO this is the best way.
    • I have 12 tattoos and my last few have healed so badly that I am reluctant to get anymore done. I stick to the healing routine everytime using mild anti bacterial wash 2/3 times a day, make sure it is dry before I add a pure moisturiser. I used to use bepanthan but no matter how well I air dried it, it still gunks up. I then tried just coconut oil which is better but im still not healing well. My last 5 tattoos have been colour and I'm wondering if this may be the issue. So desperate to find a reason for it as I absolutely love my tattoos and have so many more I have spent a lot of time designing that I want done. Maybe I am destined to only get black fine line ones.
