So the tattoo I have is a fairly small-med size on my sternum and currently I have a saniderm on and taking a week's rest and my artist said I could take it off after 4 days. I was thinking when I go back because I wear a sports bra. Do I put tegaderm back on just in case? Or by a week it's okay to leave it. Same question for my rib tattoo which got a touch up before I got my sternum. Do I put tegaderm on for the week that I start the gym or its fine for a sports bra and sweating now. A little more context I do mostly weights and functional workouts.
After taking the wrapping and bandages off. It’s complete, however you can tell the areas that have healed versus fresh ink. Looking forward to it completely healing and settling in.
Hard to get the whole thing in one picture. I’ll get better ones once healed.

I could see this working with the right artist.
Right white blue, and then for the ducks green brown blue (depending on the type).
I'd be less worried about the colors than the amount of imagery/number of images. Generally less is more. But I could totally see a flag rip on the upper arm, and a duck/water OR baseball scene on the lower. All three on one arm (if I've read you correctly) seems really difficult.
Everything's down to finding the right artist though.
I'm wanting to have an artist here finish up my entire leg with some
Traditional pieces that tie together.
Just wondering if it would be better to get em all done or at least placed and the ideas set at once or just get some here and there over time. It's a question for the artist really but I've still got a couple of months before its even possible so I thought id get the opinions of you swell folks
Hey everyone, im new to the site but id like your opinions on my tats :D
these are links to the 2 i have on my chest, i would like to continue the theme all over my front upper body, chest, ribs, stomach, abdomen and maybe 1 sleeve as well. i have the beginings of a sugar skull on my stomach, but its not finished yet so im not posting it! :) but i love the dia de los muertos style of tats, i think they are beautiful.
my latest piece - tattoo.yeeti.com skull on right side
my latest - tattoo.yeeti.com la katrina on the left.
I also started doing a pin up leg, i have 2 on there,
pin up - tattoo.yeeti.com left calf
pin up - tattoo.yeeti.com left thigh
and a horror character leg on the right
nurse from silent hill - tattoo.yeeti.com right thigh
heeeeeeeres Johnny!!! - tattoo.yeeti.com right calf
be happy for input, ideas and feedback. thanks all! :D
So - here's my dilemma.
My goal is "squid pants". And I honestly don't really care much what all goes into them. I have a (short) list of things that I don't want... but otherwise I care more about just having good looking work on me. I want "fancy" legs. That's it.
So how do I convey this to potential tattooers without sounding like a total flake? I worry that if I say "I don't care, do whatever you want, except for "x" things" they'll brush me off as someone who is in it just for some kind of status thing or something... which isn't the case at all. It's VERY personal to me. It's just that I'm not attached to any specific imagery.
I don't want to "overshare" with my tale of woe about why exactly I need fancy legs... but I don't want to get written off either...
regular customer of mine was cool enough to drop by so i could get some healed photos of his robot battle leg.looking at it now i still like the piece but there are some things i wish i would have done differently. maybe next time.
Before I start, I'll say that I don't want to try to treat this forum as a place to get medical advice (but if there is something that is wrong feel free to open my eyes to it), just wondering if this has happened to others and to connect the dots.
Okay I have now moved below my knee for my squid pants, and it seems every week (weekly sessions) my leg will swell up, my ankles getting the worst of it. If the area thats tattooed is near my ankles it will turn red. I've talked with my tattooer about it, and both him and I assume its just from having to stand for 13 hours a day. Healing is a wee bit slower and the scabs are thicker then when it was my thigh. While I'm sleeping I've been keeping my leg elevated, and it helps take some of the swelling down, until I get back to work the next day.
So my question is, how has been the healing period for you guys/girls that have had their calf/shins done?
