New here & to tattoos

Recommended Posts

Hey all.  I just got my first tattoo in August... at the ripe old age of 56.  I've always doubted the 'once you get one, you'll want more', until I got one.  It's true, I'm already planning my next.  Thought it be nice to join up to be able to ask questions and enjoy everyone else's work.

Welcome! At 62, I'm the oldest guy...to post so far. I got my first tattoo just a few weeks before my 61st birthday and my second 6 months later. I have the itch badly at this point but have not found a local artist I want to work with and haven't had any time to really concentrate on an artist and what I want to do for my next. At some point, though, the itch will overcome my patience...............

Got my first one at 52. I started with a sleeve and I've been working pretty steady for the last 7 years. Now have two sleeves, two chest panels, full back and working up the right leg to tie it in with the chest and back. May wind up with a body suit. All by the same tattooer, Japanese theme. Go big or go home.

    • Yes, I believe any tattoo placed in an area frequently seen by others will change your experience undoubtedly. I think tattoos get seen as so much the fashion item these days people forget how powerful they are. They communicate to the individual onlooker in a myriad of ways that could fill up a whole book. However, whatever the feelings about tattoos are by the onlooker could be the difference between them looking right past you as if you don't exist or asking you to come come with them to spend the night. Enjoy the journey. Every tattoo is a living commitment to allowing your internal world to the external.
    • You win. Really wasn't bad at all. Call me crazy, but it was maybe a 4 to 5 on the pain scale. Only thing that is sore now is a small portion of the elbow bone.
