Hello - New to the site - Need some advice!


Recommended Posts

Find a good local tattooer and ask them where it should go. Every artist is different, and different artists have different abilities, which is one of the biggest factors in how a tattoo will turn out in the end.

Commit to getting the tattoo from them, show that you're serious and you'll get some good advice. Dont shop hop looking for ideas.

I like the idea. I've seen cool caffeine and chocolate molecule tattoos!

IMO, my concern is legibility over time. Maybe consider doing less and making it bigger so the line work holds over time. Go with what @a_beukeveld suggests...find an artist and talk to them. They'll point ya in the right direction! Me, I'd be looking for an artist that can nail lettering. Good luck!

Thanks - most people who have this tattoo (which isnt many) have the colored one which is more of a rendered piece of art based on the amino chain - i kinda like the bottom one because it is more genuine and im a bigger fan of black and white - my concern more than anything is the lettering

    • Back at the shop yesterday to see Andrew (he did my most of my leg stuff plus a few others). Webs either side of my sternum heart. Once we finished, he said he will see how it heals and do some touch ups- and that we need sowing above the daggers to balance it. I suggested a mini Web, so we're going with that. Will be living in wire-free bras for a bit (material is softer so less irritation) while healing. I had to laugh , no bra and you can't even see the webs 🤣. Thanks kids and gravity.  I've booked a weekday with Kyle in August for my elbow, but I have an opportunity to teach so looks like I need to shuffle my elbow appointment yet again. I'm going to see if I can't get in earlier in the month.  Anyway, super happy with the webs, I fully expected to hate my life choices but it was one of the easiest ones yet. The bottoms of the mermaids sucked way more. This was just lots of vibrations. Happy days!
    • @rabbitrok @Dan , yeah can't go wrong with flowers! I have some little blossoms and the roses with more flowers to come. But I still stand by the skulls 💀 😍
    • "Friday the 13th tattoo" refers to a tradition where tattoo shops offer special deals on the 13th of the month if it falls on a Friday. Originating from the association of Friday the 13th with bad luck, this event has become a popular date for getting tattoos, often featuring spooky or superstitious themes. Tattoo enthusiasts and newcomers alike take advantage of discounted prices, typically $13 plus a $7 tip, totaling $20. The designs are usually pre-drawn flash tattoos, small and simple. This event combines fun, superstition, and art, making it a unique cultural phenomenon in the tattoo community.
