Hello from Spain! (and advice please)

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

I was looking for some tattoo advice yesterday and I found this amazing topic in this forum called "The ladies thread". That made me wanna join the community 🙂

I'm getting a side ribcage tattoo tomorrow and I have a concern. Thing is I usually have my shoulders bended a little bit, you know like an old man. I can't really stand right, it hurts my back. I'm worried that the tattoo won't look straight since it is a quote. I mean, will the tattooer do it in my usual position or my straight position? I guess my normal possition, but still. I don't want the quote to look like a slide.

Thank you all in advance. Hope to have a great time sharing our tattoos and art.

Welcome. 

Personally, I'd make the effort to strengthen my back. You'll have decades of thankfulness if and when you're successful. Most tattooists will want you to stand straight, 'cuz it'll be infinitely easier for you to correct your posture then to correct ink that is purposefully set in crooked.

You are right, SStu. It would look amazing and also I will have less pain in my back, but I'm afraid it's not possible for me to do that, or at least not 100%. I hope it looks fine, I'm kind of nervous.

Thanks for the advice 🙂

Today is the day and I'm feeling quite weird. This tattoo means a lot of me, things I've been dealing with since I was a teenager and I want to cry. Seriously, I'm like "this is a big decision". I'm happy and want to do it but I have this sudden strain on my chest. I've heard some people need time to adjust to his new "body" with the tattoo.

Good news! It turned out amazing! It looks even better than expected and the tattooer was very nice. It kinda hurted but in a good way, I can't explain it :)

Great experience.

    • @tertia - kind of a late response to this, but that's is a very nice rose. Very bold and solid. Congrats!
    • @Charmed– I'm definitely a fan of large pieces and heavy coverage. But I have to say that there is sometimes something very dramatic about a single well-placed tattoo, and yours falls into that category. It is like a single painting hanging in the middle of a wall, it sort of focuses the eye. Very pretty! That being said, the wrapping idea sounds nice. Alternatively, since you seem to be inclined to get more tattoos, maybe you could move to another part of your body for your next piece, and let this one sit for a while as you ponder ideas for your leg. As @Hogrider said, think about where you want to go with your leg. Do you want an integrated large piece, or a collection of pieces?
    • I'm a month shy of 25y/o.  I'm just not a movie guy; I'm a comic book and punk guy.  I also like the Mohawk Hot stuff, very 80's-90's NYHC. Wonderful tattoo though, lets not take away from that.
