Hello,

I have discovered this forum few days ago and since then I have read quite a lot of topics and I'm amazed by the friendliness of people here.

I decided to register to be able to add my opinions (occasionally) and ask questions (more likely).

I'm a female, after 30, from the middle of Europe, not native English speaker, please forgive my mistakes.

I got my first tattoo 7 years back, tribal phoenix and I had it improved/partly covered last Friday. There will be one more session after two months, when we can see how it heals and how the colours settle.

I had two more tattoo sessions this year, watercolour sparrow on my inner forearm and small text on the inner ankle.

I plan a tattoo of owl for the next year to add to my sparrow. And I don't think it will be the last one :D

Bird tattoos are great. I really love traditional swallows and sparrows. I recently got a swallow tattoo on my right shoulder/upper chest. At first I was concerned that bird tattoos would look too feminine but then I thought eff it, I'll get what I want.

My wife wants to get an owl tattoo wearing a little nurse's cap. She's a night person and works nights at a hospital so she's going for the whole night owl thing....says it will be "cute." I say more power to her if that's what she wants.

Yeah, pidjones, I'm very fond of watercolor tattoos, even if there is a risk that they will fade. I avoid the sun, most of the time I have my hand covered, I use sunblock and I moisturize a lot. So, I hope they will look nice for a long time.

Jar W, that's a lovely idea for a tattoo I would say.

Thank you for welcome :)

I will use this thread of mine for babbling about my planned tattoo.

The tattoo will be of creatures from Sandman comics. In upper part I want to have gatekeepers of Dreaming realm - wyvern, gryphon and hippogryph (it has a horse head here, not eagle). The wyvern of shoulder cap, the gryphon and hippogryph on sides of shoulder cap (will take up a part of back and collar), all with heads looking down on Morpheus in the shape of cat (from A dream of a thousand cats) who will take central part of my arm. Below, just above an elbow will be Desire in the shape of a cat pretending to be an aspect of Dreamlord, looking up on Morpheus.

It sounds complicated, but there are only five characters and the style is not really detailed.

I will try to get the consultation with the artist next week.

Very nice bird tattoo you have, @marley mission. The more I read through this forum, the more I appreciate the traditional tattoo. I don't think I ever get one, but before I didn't like it at all and now I like it on other people a lot :)

be open to your changing tastes in tattoos - my collection is pretty eclectic i think and it reflects the changes i have experienced in what i like and what i want on me - that said - tattoos are so much more than that - its been a fun ride for me thus far and i feel lucky that i have enjoyed getting tattooed by some really great artists and fun people - this is also a fun little spot so i hope you enjoy the site - if you havent already - check out the interview section - you'll be entertained and informed beyond your expectations

    • 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.
