Hi Everyone!

Hello. My name is Andrea and I'm from Berkeley, CA. I have been having a lot of fun browsing this site the past couple of days. It seems like a great forum and I'm excited to start participating.

Hello Andrea and welcome! I'm in North Oakland, so we're practically neighbors. Have you been tattooed in any of our local shops?

Thanks Dari! I've been tattooed at Temple, Blackheart, Spider Murphy's, Idle Hand, Everlasting, Tattoo City, Tattoo 13, Analog, and Samuel O'Reilly's (in Santa Cruz, but still a short drive). Hmm....I think that's it. I feel so lucky to live in the Bay Area.

Oh wow, that's quite a bit. We are lucky to live here for sure. I'm not familiar with any of the artists at Analog, but that Bloodwork:Sleeves book that they put out is amazing. And isn't Samuel O'Reilly's a beautiful shop? Will you be posting some pics of your tattoos for us?

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
