Tylenol is not a blood thinner, it should be fine to take before the tattoo,
the best things you can do before a tattoo is mentally prepare for it, put yourself in a pleasant place in your head,
perhydrate the day and night before and get a good nights sleep,
eat a really good healthy meal right before the tattoo,
bring sugary candy and water with you to the tattoo,
I bring skittles and M&M's,
I also bring a banana to eat half way through,
eat a little candy throughout the tattoo, it will make you feel better.
don't forget to turn the sounds off on your phone during the tattoo,like the ringer and text alerts, it's the polite thing to do.
I like the new guy's style, too.
Highlights and some outlining added to the top might help it, applied by the right person. Print out a photo and have him show you what he's intending.
I don't know about the Tylenol question, but I doubt it'd help much. It's just a sensitive area and it's gonna suck.
Some time ago I have posted a tattoo that the guy screwed up. The tattoo is going to be "repaired" guy said that he needs a full session to make it look good. Meanwhile he is doing me this to join both tattoos together there will also be colours like orange eyes and pentagram and flames around the horns. But I couldn't last the whole session so he only finished the contours it was painful much more than the chest. The only place I had a bit of relief was the middle of my belly. So here is the question is Tylenol ok to use before the session.
And could you give me any personal opinion what do you think about this idea of tattoo. Is it going to work I mean the top tattoo is kind of more realistic style and what is going to make on my belly is not going to be so much realistic. Personally I really like his style and the idea to put a bit of life to the top tattoo with colours but would to hear some honest opinions.
Heading to Oakland, California to see Freddy Corbin at Temple tattoo to get inked for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Appointment is noon, Tuesday.
Daniel Higgs did the original wedding tattoos at Realistic Studio in San Francisco and Freddy was in the shop watching and making comments while he was doing us. Daniel doesn't do tattoos any more. So our first choice is Freddy to keep spiritual continuity.
The wife and me are getting a "25-XXV added somewhere . I am also getting a "Dragon" mixed into it...
I'll keep you up to date.
Hello! So this is my second intro post, but ive taken my original idea and reworked it, Just would like some feedback. Basically, the body drawings are rough sketches, of course the feathers would be done better and the little girl would look more like the one in the pic with the long quote. The quote ive shortened to "happiness is not the absence of struggle". There's a ton of meaning behind every inch of this design and I could explain it, but really im just looking for feedback on the tattoo aesthetically. Im planning on keeping it all black ink, but if you think colour would look nice somewhere, let me know! This will be my first tattoo so all the feedback is appreciated greatly. Keep in mind these are rough sketches and my artist (who I met today!! :D ) will be drawing it out more nicely. Im likely going to have to break it up into pieces and do it over the course of the year because of cost, opposed to squeezing it into a month or two. As far as pricing goes, what do you guys think? I just want to get a few more quotes before I commit to this shop. Thanks a million!
cant get photos to upload on post.. check out my gallery :)
