Re-entering :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

5 years ago I stopped tattooing (what was I thinking :confused: ), and now I'm finally re-entering.

So, trying to start from start again, lot's of drawing/tracing/reading/practicing, to get that "feel" again.

Welcome! Not to pry, and it may be very personal, but could you share a) why you left tattooing, and b) why you are getting back into it? BTW, the drawing look good!

Hi Pidjones, thanks for the welcome, and taking the time to check out my drawings.

The reason I left, is a combination of different things, but the main reason was that I wanted more stability for my children, and more time with them. The shop where I did my apprentice-time, had more tattooers than "work", so lots of long hours with little income. (and yes, that is part of the deal, but off course my responsibility as a parent is the biggest and most important deal :D )

The reason I'm getting back, is because "in my mind" I never really stopped, I was just making a choice that was right for my family that time, always knowing I would want to return. So here I am!

    • Here's a decent photo of it. Nearly healed now. 🙂  This was a gift from my tattoo artist ... he's moving three hours away. Boooooo. But I'm happy for him. It's a great new studio, and he'll be closer to his family.
    • 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.
