Hi Everyone

Recommended Posts

I'm Jennifer, 41, in eastern USA. Married Mom of two teenagers.

I got my first tattoo at 19 at a Farmers Market and loved it so much I went back the next day and got a second. Not the finest work in the industry but I didn't know any better. About 10 years later I had the second tattoo covered by a much better artist in a bona fide tattoo shop. Unfortunately due to stretch marks (thanks kids) and other reasons I don't remember, I never got the work completely finished. I wasn't working, instead I was a stay at home Mom so I never felt comfortable spending money on tattoos. Earlier this year I went back to work and my desire to get more ink is really strong. Last weekend, on a whim, I went and got a small piece on my ankle and not only do I love it... I want MORE. I've spent the past 12 years envisioning a tattoo and thinking of more so I think it's time.

I enjoy reading forums of people with like interests so joining here seemed like a good idea.

attached is the picture of my recent tattoo.

Welcome! I have a good friend in Baltimore that you may see some day on the streets. He will be on a bright red GoldWing trike. Beware this guy! He has a personality bigger than you can imagine. We call him "Wheels".

With two teens, I imagine it is restful to go back to work!

    • 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.
