Hi everyone. Been a lurker on here for some time but I thought I should do the polite and actually make my presence known.

My name is Nic and I live in Hong Kong. Been tattooing for about 5 years. Started late... didn't get tattooed until I was 30, and made my first tattoo at the age of 32. Hong Kong is rather small, and access to tattoo knowledge is limited, so I try to whenever I can to visit overseas to get tattooed by tattooers I admire and learn through observation/asking questions.

I also try to attend conventions within the Asian region, since it's more financially feasible, and it's allowed me to make friends with fine folks from all over the world.

I take pride in my city and enjoy showing people around, so if any of you ever happens to pass through Hong Kong, do give me a shout!

Hope this introduction is OK. Nice to meet y'all!

best regards,

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
