Marathon Tattoos

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, 

I'm still learning the search function and couldn't find exactly what I wanted (granted I didn't look through all the pages 😅) .

What's everyone's opinion on marathon tattoos? I'm getting a sleeve done with 3 consecutive days back to back. This is due to the artist that I wanted only doing a guest spot for 5 days and I want the full sleeve done. 

Feel free to criticize or speak openly! Just wanted some thoughts.

I'm doing a Japanese backpiece, and generally speaking, that's a situation of slow and steady wins the race.... which I rather like. It becomes a part of the rhythm of life in a way that's gotta be different than a sprint. Getting tattooed monthly over the span of many years is the true marathon.


just my 2 cents

Definitely agree with you both! I don't know why but I just have this huge sense of urgency and want that immediate gratification from getting the full sleeve done. With all this being said, we'll see how long i'm able to last lol. Longest i've sat was 5 hours and the 5th hour was hell. 

Thanks for your thoughts!

    • well I wouldn't worry about it then, and maybe don't use that same gel on fresh tattoos.
    • Thanks Dan,i used a normal fragranced shower gel,the previous 2 days i used a different one,and was fine....i only got inked in black The rash wasnt on the tatt but in the areas around it..i put some camphor cream on,and it started to fade away.its fine now..just stressed to get another one,and is 3 weeks too soon to get another one done?
    • I only use a anti-microbial soap on my fresh tattoo,  any drug store has it over the counter, what color was the ink that got the rash ? and IMO it was the shower gel that cause it, since it was 3 days after
