    • Hey bro, lookin good   I’m not into tribal art on myself but I like looking at others work. You sure went all in for your first tattoo and didn’t go wrong with art or artist I’d say.  Others have answered your question, but I would’ve definitely told you to stay with that artist if you were happy, changing in the middle of a project would probably not deliver the outcome you wanted. One artist one style .. i have 8 tattoos plus my left arm sleeve and I was worried like you were in the beginning, but I don’t even think about it until around 3 weeks for a truer finished product. I just use a lotion with a skin protective active ingredient like lotion from hospital, keep it moist but not overly as that can bring out the ink from my experience. I normally use lotion twice a day until the peeling is almost done then once a day after showering then when needed once peeling is done. Also shaving the hair off will give you the true look oppose to having a slightly distorted look from hair being over it. I shave my arms only after it’s healed about once every 2 weeks so they look the best. Good luck to you  
    • New to the online tattoo world and getting tattoos for the most part. I’ve had one small piece for years and recently started getting more and more tattoos since the woman I’m with now likes ink oppose to my last wife that didn’t approve. I am into monochrome for some reason, I don’t dislike color tattoos I just haven’t seen anything I would like on me and I am very pleased with black ink. My most recent endeavor started as upper arm hourglass, lower arm sword/rock , then all the background fill in. I hooked up with an artist that freehand so I showed him what i liked and let him put his own look into it from starting to the 98% I’m at now. The idea from the start was full sleeve so he knew what was going to go where when it was time. The background is a mountain, sunset with clouds and some stars. It looks good to me so hopefully I’ll get some good feedback from here about it. I only lack on inside upper bicep right at the arm pit and some touch up. The hourglass gets some more detail to make it pop more and it was the first ink so it’s not as dark now. Well anyway, look forward to talking to you all. Also I forgot to mention the stairway, the date on the first step is the date the woman I love and myself will be married!! The puzzle piece was a his and hers tattoo the girl and me got after we figured why the hell not, lol  so he had to work it into the sleeve.  sorry the pics aren’t very good, hard to pose right and get good pics selfie style
    • Hey bro, i hear ya on the sensitive skin areas.  My left arm has been a free hand sleeve project broken into 2 main tattoos and then fill in sessions. Well let’s say after the first fill in session I didn’t wait long enough to try and finish and damn that arm was just painful from the start. I’m 98% done now and had to pull the cord during 2nd fill in session. On the inside of bicep right at the arm pit lit me on fire, lol. Well my point was; try vasocaine lidocaine spray. After you get going on your ink and have broken skin all over, best after outlines, spray the areas and wait 5 minutes and mostly will be numb except in the most sensitive areas. It also helped with swelling, bleeding, and helped afterward not be so sore.  And no I’m not pitching the product, it just really works.

      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.
      Thank you

      Here we can post our bad tattoos and the story behind them
      I'll start with one of mine, done when I was 16 some 22 years ago, even when new people asked what it was, it's a bat moon and 3 stars by the way...!

      Note to the moderators, this is my leg, tattoo removal being done on me, not a client / stranger / randoms.
      Back in 1997 I started what I hoped would be an epic leg sleeve - and ended up falling out of love with it about a year or two later. I also added to the back, by a different artist, a totally random piece to what you see here and what's on the side. By 1999 I had zero intention of actually finishing it and started focusing more on work, a career and things like that. Since then I've had several other tattoos that I actually like, but have always dealt with what's that? whenever I wear shorts. Thus, I started having them removed a while ago. Since this piece was mostly grey wash, and put in rather lightly, I've had some really great results after a single treatment. Thursday night I sat through a 2nd treatment on this piece and had 1st treatments on the right side of my leg and a piece on the back.

      Healing is going well already and hopefully by the second week of January I can get another treatment.
