Upcoming world trip - recommendations wanted!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Long time since I posted here so I really must update with my latest pieces.

 

Anyway,  myself and the better half are taking some time out to do a bit of travelling this year and want to line up some potential tattoo appointments along the way. 

 

The current plan is is the following:

summer in Boston (have a few shops in mind there), a few weeks in Cuba and Colombia. Back to Ireland for a coupe of weeks and then onto South East Asia; two months touring Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos then a month in Phillipines and a month in Indonesia. 

We may get in a few other places depending on finances etc. 

 

I'd like to get a hand-poked tattoo at some stage but obviously want to be going in eyes wide open and to a good artist. 

 

Any my other recommendations for shops/artists along our route? We're mostly into traditional work but not exactly restricted in that sense. 

 

Thanks again, folks!

Ross Nagle comes to mind, for Ireland. I'm not really familiar tattooers in the other destinations, but i'm sure some googling searches can get you some good thoughts. best of luck and safe travels! i can't wait to see how it all turns out!

    • I’m currently working on my sleeve and I’m about halfway done with it. I noticed now that there’s a small smell on my tattoo. I can’t smell it from a distance and only can smell it when I get super close to my tattoo. I’m just concerned with the thought of an infection but I’ve done everything the same I have with my 7 other tattoos. I have no unusual pain with it and it isn’t red or inflamed. Just would like a little advice on what to do? 
    • Hey! Wouldn't by chance be going to the empire state ny tattoo expo would ya?  In any case, i did a 3 day marathon and boy was it tough. i did the ole soap and a balm that my artist provided. With that being said, you should 100% ask your artist(s) as they know how they tattoo and how their tattoos heal for the most part. They should tell you what to do but i've heard many great things about saniderm. Best of luck!
    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
