New to Forum, Advice for moving up the shoulder?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

After being interested in tattoos for a long time, I finally got my first about 6 months ago, with two more following since. Between the second and third I came across this site and found it to be a great resource for all things tattoo. After spending a fair bit of time reading on here, I figured I'd join in and try to get some advice for future tattoos. So far, starting with the most recent, I've got a Sailor Jerry shrimp on my foot, a canoeing/portaging silhouette around my arm, and a small moose pictograph on my ass (not pictured). The tattoos have since healed without issue, but I haven't gotten any decent healed pictures yet.

I'm thinking I'd like to fill out my arm/shoulder above the canoe next. I've been considering a flying duck (hooded merganser) in kind of a Japanese style (cloud/wind bar background, maybe some maple leaves?), and was wondering how feasible that might be in that space. Any suggestions or artist recommendations in MN would be greatly appreciated. Anyway, looking forward to reading more on here and, hopefully, getting better tattoos for it!

    • I'm no expert, but in my research I've learned that there's a few possible causes for this. If it's an allergic reaction it can go away on its own. Some get it days after getting the tattoo and others years - it varies person to person. If it doesn't go away on its own definitely go see a dermatologist or at the very least talk to your tattoo artist. It could also be an infection caused by lack of proper care during the healing process. I've also learned that applying too much skin care products can essentially cause itchy, white bumps. Again, I'm not an expert and someone else here will probably have a better answer for you. But if you're that worried about it talk to your artist or see a dermatologist. Good luck and try not to worry.
    • Yeah, looks normal to me as well. Just sit back and let the healing process do its thing. 
    • more pictures! I also got a traditional piece in May! I must say it's my favourite piece so far :) Enviado desde mi Redmi Note 8 Pro mediante Tapatalk
