Hey everyone!

Recommended Posts

New here ;) I have three tattoos. Just a few days ago added the Little Prince above the planet (that I got done 1 yr ago). This is a tattoo I really love! Then I have a 2.5 y/o Patronus cat that I have had quite a hard time to learn loving. That was my first tattoo and I did not know what to expect and how to properly communicate with the artist. The writing was wrong and also the cat outline was quit badly done. I had it touched up by someone else but yeah...it is what it is.

And finally, I have a back tattoo that I got done 3 days ago and I am having troubles accepting as it is not what I envisioned it. I find it is waay too dark and too busy on the top of the heart. There is virtually on negative space to give it a more 3D feel. This is very disappointing as I truly did my research, carefully selected the design with the artist (who is the same one that did the Little Prince tattoo). Basically this is the reason why I joined, to help calm my anxiety about it as with the cat I knew the same day there are big things that are wrong with it and I never really learned to love it.

So today I am feeling quite low and just riding the feeling out. I know once the black black in falls off, I won't find it as dark, but I am worried that the overlapping elements will always make it look blurry and undefined.

Thank you! It comes and goes in waves. I know it often happens to feel an initial rejection towards a tattoo, so I am just giving it a couple of months. Luckily it is winter time so it will have plenty of time to heal before wearing clothes to show it off. 

However, do you guys have any tips for healing a tattoo in winter time? I keep them covered with clothes during the day and try to reapply Cicaplast every 3 hours or so, but I noticed they feel drier and scabbier (the hair of the little prince is already a hard dry scab) than the tattoos I got in spring/autumn. I am wearing a loose cotton undershirt under a sweater and hoping for the best :)) In the evening, I do let them 'out' for some time.

    • I'm beginning the process of wrapping my lower leg. I'm somewhat new to the tattoo scene. I do know there are no "rules" but more of a practice with certain styles. I am maintaining a fully traditional style. From the majority of what I've seen of traditional work, there is space left between each separate peace and sometimes filled in with the dots and stars. My question is. I've seen some cases where all of the tattoos overlap, leaving no vacant skin between them. Is this practice frowned upon from a traditional standpoint?   Thanks in advance
    • There's new video on YouTube made and about Jeff Gogue.  It's him getting his 101 hours of work on his back in Japan, but also includes his work.  He talks about have to surrender to be able to get a piece like that.  Some interesting thoughts. I love his works and really enjoyed the video. Jeff Gogue - Surrender
