Hey everybody!

My name is Colin and I got my first tattoo when I was 16 years old, it was a traditional japanese Koi on my shoulder. Today, I have a bunch of different pieces, I got a skull and rose piece on my chest, a gun along my ribs, and a mom themed piece for my momma on the other shoulder! I also work for the National Association for the Preservation of Skin Art (NAPSA) at SaveMyInk.com, we are the folks who allow you to arrange for a tattoo to be removed and preserved when you die. I work within the community section on the website myself, but I can answer some questions if you're curious! What I do though is categorize and review the photos our users upload, so I've developed a bit of an eye for style and subject matter in tattoos. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to being a part of this community here on lastsparrow, thanks for having me!

Hi Colin! I think preserving a tattoo when an individual dies is fascinating!

It really is pretty cool, its funny cause I got the job without knowing exactly what the company did! Except that they were involved in the tattoo industry..I'm having a blast working there though, best job I've ever had..

We actually just got to travel to Vegas to host a booth at the Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth last month and I had a blast, met a lot of really fun and interesting people there.

Here's a link if you wanna check out some of the pieces and stories we have preserved,

    • 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.
