"Super simple design" = Hard

Recommended Posts

I received an email from a guy that wanted a tattoo. His friend was getting a tattoo by my teacher and he decided he would come and get his first. I told him I was an apprentice, so I am limited in what I should be doing. He replied, "Super simple design." I wrote back asking what the design was. He wrote, "Easiest tattoo ever, bro! Anyone could do it in 5 minutes!" I wanted to sarcastically write back, "Oh... so, how long have you been tattooing?" For the third time, I asked him what he wanted. He wrote back, "I just want a single line, equilateral triangle on my forearm." Long story short, small and simple doesn't mean easy. It's really the opposite. There are no opportunities to hide a hiccup. Either way, I told him about 100 times how hard it was, but he was really digging my apprentice rates. My teacher said that I made it perfectly clear to him how I felt about it, but I need to challenge myself, so if he wanted to let me try, I should do it. Here's my 9 liner, equilateral triangle.

As you are using a mobile phone try to edit the title using a computer! It's probably a bug from the app.

About the tattoo, I love it!! The lines are so perfect, congratulations!!! I'm sure he loved it even if he doesn't know to appreciate your effort thinking this was an easy job!!

    • There's nothing wrong with it. Don't worry. Just enjoy it.
    • It's healing. It won't fully heal for 4 to 6 weeks. Just let it heal and don't smother it with anything.
    • Hi! So I got my first tattoo ten days ago. They are fine line tulips and they are so beautiful. The thing is, it's kinda getting darker, darkening the delicate the details of ir too. Is this normal? I always heard the tattoo Will go lighter as it heals but it's being the opposite for me. It has pretty much flaked off completely so i'm scared it might be the way this heals and thats it. Please help. Here are some pics The first is right after I got it and the second one is now.  Also something yo know I put the film to sleep for like 2 more nights after I got it which later I ask my artista and he Say I really shouldn't xD could this have some influencia on how it's looking now? Thanks for the help
