Hey!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I'm new here and I decided to join in because I am about to do my first tattoo and I wanted a sentence in japanese but I wanted to be sure it is with the correct characters so I was hoping some of you would understand and could advise me.

Thanks!

My unsolicited opinion: get a classic Japanese tattoo theme to represent that sentence you want. It'll be awesome and you won't have to worry about a poor translation.  

What I really mean is: GET A TIGER! Or a tiger fighting something. Or growling at the (unholy) wind. Or lightening. Lots of lightening.

Actually I was thinking of not leaving only the text. That sentence means something to me of course, and was translated from a cousin of mine that was born and lived some years in Japan. But I was thinking about envolving the text with some kind of "wind" I don't know. I just feel that the text only would be kind of maybe boring. But I never thought about putting only an image, and I liked the lightning idea a lot :D Thanks a lot for your help. SStu and oboogie thanks for your help too. Since I am bit unexperienced on this I also want to make sure I am making it right.

Don't be afraid to take all your ideas to the artist once you've found a good one =) most artists love a chance to create something unique for their clients! Don't feel like you have to design it yourself

    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist. 
    • I had my first "wet" heal tattoo done last Friday,  a week today and I took the "second" tegaderm off, COULD NOT WAIT! all the itching I had was from the derm! No itching since i took it off,  minor minor peeling,  the pic is from tonight, one week today
    • Welcome. I think a lot of things can have an affect on felt pain... placement, your state of mind, general health, etc.  Do what they recommend, rest, good meal before, hydrated, take a snack along and you'll be fine.  Just stay calm and don't make it worse than it is.  Maybe let everyone know where you're getting it for more specific advice.
