Need a little help planning

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, Viggo here. Greetings from Greater Cleveland! Nice to be here.

Every time I have big changes in my life I like to get a tattoo to commemorate & remember the events. I recently finished my bachelors degree (only 10 years late), moved across the country, and started a new career, so it's time for a new tattoo. I'd like the "Finished my Bachelors" tattoo to fix the one I got when I started...

(Apologies for poor quality)

It was put on by little more than a scratcher in a tattoo shop in College-Town, IA. These are the constellations of my family's Zodiac signs, done in shitty black stars that aren't even consistent with each other.

I've been a huge fan of astrophotography since they launched Hubble when I was a boy, so I was thinking that the best way to fix this shitty tattoo is with a galaxy back piece which subtly incorporates my family's Zodiac signs & NASA photography...

Questions? Concerns? Scathing indictments?

Anybody know of any artists good with outer space within 3-4 hours of Cleveland?

space tattoos can make great cover-ups.

I can't vouch for who has experience or examples of space tattoos in your area, but you do have some awesome tattooists within easy reach of you, including at least:

Mitch Moses the drown town

Black Anvil in Fort Wayne black-anvil-tattoo

You'll probably get some more candidates from others on the forum here, too.

    • So, I got pretty ill — along with the rest of my family — the day after my last tattoo. Fever, snot, puking, the whole lovely picture. 🙂 My artist advised me to stay hydrated, eat healthily, take vitamins, and see what happened, oh, and not to take NSAIDs. Despite this sound advice, the healing process went really weirdly, and now after two weeks, I feel hard scar tissue bits in multiple parts of it. I'm wondering if other folks here have had a similar experience with getting ill right after a tattoo (not "tattoo flu", but just plain old ill), and how their tattoo ended up healing over the long term? 
    • Tattoos certainly don't have to have deep meaning.  If the curious ask you what they mean just tell them "It means I like tattoos". 
    • Don't do anything. Of your original 5 tattoos, you've had two covered up and now you are looking to do even more coverups. This is just a recipe for disaster. Your skin isn't a piece of paper, you can't just keep erasing and starting over. Every time you tattoo, laser or cover up, you are traumatizing your skin and creating more scar tissue. I have two sleeves, back, chest panel and a piece that goes up my right leg to connect with my back/chest. Not a single tattoo has any meaning other than I like the imagery. Just my opinion, but a lot of that 'meaning' nonsense comes from watching too much LA ink and these other tattoo shows where people claim this big long sob story about why they are getting the tattoo.  Take some time, a lot of time, before you do anything; otherwise you're just going to make it worse.
