So I recently got a tattoo on my inner right forearm, and I am a pretty big PC gamer, playing many hours a day. I tend to drag my arm over my mouse pad for mouse movements, and am worried about how it will affect my tattoo? Should I worry? I am thinking of buying an arm sleeve later on when my tattoo fully heals to prevent the direct contact between the tattoo and mousepad. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
As, again, is mentioned above it's going to take a few weeks before you see how your tattoo is healed. The milkiness is normal and should fade with time. As long as you're not experiencing any signs of infection just keep taking care of it as your artist instructed and your tattoo should be just fine.
Your tattoo looks great by the way! Congrats on the new ink!
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?
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!
Hello, I'm obviously new here, & I've heard a lot of great things about this forum so I figured I'd give it a shot.
My main reason for joining is because I am in desperate need of advice for a cover-up of the tat I got when I turned 18.
As you can see it's fantastic. On top of it being a bright green square its also slightly crooked (The way I'm standing trying to take the pic myself makes it look a lot worse)
I've got a rib cage piece of black & grey roses and a compass, so I'd like to stay away from more roses. Ideally i'd like to use as little color as possible as well, but I'm open to whatever needs to be done to save me from the "Yea I think your tractor's sexy" comments every time I go to the beach.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
