Hey everybody! Name is Drew. Just looking around trying to get some opinions from others who enjoy tattoos!

Anyhow, 32- Got 2 tats around age 16/17 (From shops)- One was horrible, which is covered now, kinda, and the other, is just blah. You know the whole, I want a tattoo, Im young, that picture on the wall looks ok type lol.

Heres where we are at today. Oldie baddie and cover up. (Am getting the skull touched up when I go in next week) I have an appointment with a top notch guy out of Portland next week to have the classic st. Michael get reni done next, but, while I was set on where I wanted it (Attached to the skull, on the outter forearm), the closer I draw near to time... I worry spending all this money and talent on the back side of the skull would be a "waste".... What do you guys think, placement wise? I do want to expand while money allows, but then, have second thoughts that the forearm will not be able to expand setup like this...

I like the skull - I can defiinitely relate to "You know the whole, I want a tattoo, Im young, that picture on the wall looks ok type lol." I don't see why the others couldn't be covered with the St. Michael theme that you want. I'm in the same boat with wanting to cover up old tattoos, so let me know how it goes!

    • Hi all, I am new in this industry and i would like to know if there is any platform only for professionals to find guest spots, long term work etc... even for tattoo owners studios to publish job offers for artists. I would like to fins a platform like Linkedin but only for tattoos professionals. HOnestly i do not like to use instagram or facebook for professional stuff and for example tattoodo is more to find clients not offers to work in studios or offers jobs if i am a owner.   Said that i really appreciate you support on it.   Thanks in advance and apologies if i make a mistake on where to posrt my concern   Best, John
    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.
