Are these areas blow outs or normal healing?
you can't tell any F***ing thing in a week !
it's just healing
Just the last two letters look blown out to me?
You have to let it heal before you can accurately judge a tattoo.
Just worried me cos none of my others have looked blown out while healing
Let it heal. Breathe!
Can a tattoo look blown out while healing?
Listen, EVERYONE is telling you to calm down and let it heal.
I don't think there's any need to be rude. I was simply asking advice about whether it is a blow out or not.
So I am asking this question in advance, as I still have 1 inner arm peony to go - otherwise my 3/4 sleeve is finished with the background and coloring.
It is of a japanese kirin with it's face on my lower arm and legs up towards my shoulder.
I love the colors and everything in the sleeve except for a top vertical leg that sticks up.
I'm starting to think it is out of place and points at me oddly.
It's also not drawn as geometrically as the other 3 legs but I dismissed this at the stencil stage and did not tell the artist.
Is it worth lasering this leg so that the artist can redraw it?
Even though I have one peony left, i think I can more or less see how the sleeve tattoo will look like?
I am a bit bummed I am feeling this way, but has anyone else been in my position?
Have you gone for a large tattoo or sleeve, overlooked something in the stencil then sought laser down the track to redraw it?
Should laser only be reserved for worst case scenarios?
Hey guys so I jumped the gun and really wanted to start my half sleeve. i wanted to add things to make it look more full and Well a year later I want to change some things about it but I can't think of anything that could cover the certain area up. Im happy with the main piece but under the Skelton where the sword, buckle, and bag just doesn't do it for me and want it to be changed asap. If you have any suggestions please let me know i really appreciate it!
I'm in need of advice regarding a potential cover up. I got a tattoo on my wrist 5/6 years ago and I don't like it at all so I was wanting to get it covered - I just need advice on what my options are (if any). It was a rushed decision to start with (I was young!) but now all I see on my wrist is a dark, smudgy blob!
I originally wanted a rose, but the tattoo artist told me to choose a different flower out of his book - I know I should have walked out right then. Would a rose still be possible?
I am also wanting a tattoo on my opposite forearm, but with this on my wrist I don't feel like anything will 'go' with this at the moment as it's just not feminine to me.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
I just moved from SF to DC, and I'm looking for an artist on the east coast to design a chest piece I've had in mind for a while. I thought this forum might be good for suggestions. I have several tattoos already, all black and grey, so I'm looking for someone who excels in B/G style. Mostly with heavy black ink.
I'm looking for someone who is good at creepy/scary tattoos that are a mix of american traditional and russian prison styles. Not really looking for anything in the "horror" genre, but more like medieval occult-ish/satanist type stuff.
One of my favorite artists is Alexander Grim (@alexandergrim on IG), but he is in St. Petersburg. In fact, most of my favorite artists are in Europe or Russia, like Andrey Kichatiy (@kichatiy on IG) in Moscow, or Barbe Rousse (@barbe_rousse_tattooer) in Berlin, or Cezilia Hjelt (@cezilia_gbgclassictattooing) in Gothenburg Sweden.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Any help is appreciated!
