All healed up - https://www.instagram.com/p/BAaMUlqJiVe/

it wraps a bit on both sides so it's hard to get a photo but you get the gist

I'm hoping to get something done by Jef Small when I'm in Amsterdam in May and i'm currently emailing a local artist about having something done at the end of June.

Unreleated to tattoos i'm a "mature" student who's doing history at un, my dream job would be to open a cow sanctuary because cows are great but i'd also like to travel too.

I also really like pizza and most other animals except bees and moths they can fuck off.

I love bees and moths.

And cows.

Bees and moths terrify me

like I will full on run to the other side of the country if I see one in my flat. They give me the heebie jeebies as my nan says.

Glad they have people that like them though :D every animals deserves to be loved and what not

Lovely tattoo!

So nice to see if someone goes big for their first tattoo :)

Aww thank you, I was originally going to get a smaller piece but i took advantage of a cancellation appointment with Antony who's work i've admired for like 2/3 years now.

Told him I wanted a cat and some roses and I got that, it took two sittings overall to do. One for lines and black and the other for the colour but super happy with how it turned out.

I've got so many ideas ahh

the back piece I want done is inspired by a scene in HP, but i want to finish off my arm before I move on anywhere and also my back is really sensitive (i used to flinch involuntairly when my ex would lightly tickle my back) so i'm kind of not looking forward to starting it but I want to.

In Amsterdam i've read they have a walk in day on a saturday where you just pick from flash they drew up that week so i'm just gonna bob in on the saturday i'm there and see if there's something I like.

I've got about 20 ideas atm but a lot of them I don't feel comfortable sharing till i've had them done and other's i'm not really sure on.

However I am planning on getting a tattoo of a laser gun, a tardis, lipstick/makeup, giraffe, my dog xena's face in a chakram bc she is a beautiful warrior princess and don't you tell me otherwise.

    • 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.
