Hey All! 

Happy to have found an online forum like LST where people really, really talk about tattoos! 

Its so interesting to read about all these considerations about tattoos - lifestyle impact, sleeves and squid pants to hearing about great tattoo artists! 

I am kind of late to getting tattooed? I got my first this year at 29, on my upper back/shoulder and one on my thigh 4 weeks ago. They're all of animals.

And I am booking again for a half sleeve in Feb 2019 - Im going to be so impatient! 

I guess I will hang around here and indulge in other ppl's tattoos and tattoo chats till then! 

Have a good one!

I got my first one at 56 and have no plans of stopping.  When you're a little older you're less likely to be influenced by fads and other people and get things that really mean something to you.

Welcome.

I got one single (shitty) tattoo at the age of 25. Covered that up at 40, and I have added dozens more in the six years since. I'll be getting another tomorrow. You're a baby, dude.

Hey All! 

Sorry for my delayed response and for coming across that way --- nahhh the later one gets tattooed the better.

I just meant people I see or know of being tattooed started in their late teens or early twenties, but I am happy I started now and not when I was younger 🙂

Happy holidays everyone!

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
