Imitation and some questions

Recommended Posts

Hello hello,

 

 

Im Dee, 21 years old. Just found this awesome group. I have a few little tattoo but I just got my first big piece this year. I love the artwork but unfortunately I had some problems with the healing process and it isn’t perfect so I’m worried about showing it off.

 

The full story is I got it done in Ireland. Listened to the artist instructions step by step. I didn’t have a good reaction with second skin so I read the website directions and pulled it off a day later after it was starting to stink and I got soap in it. So I let it heal naturally but I put after care on it. And in some spots my ink didn’t make it. I was wondering if anyone knows any parlors (in Cali/La area) that are ok doing touch ups.. Here’s a then and now photo for reference. But to be fair the then photo was in the shop right after my artist was done.

Welcome!
The "then" photo will be a good reference, but 1st = how long ago did you get it done?
 

I got it done on the 23 of June so almost two weeks ago

it will NEVER again look like it did the day you got it,

and keep a light coat of a lotion like Aveeno on it daily,

and hey ! if you need  a touchup in a couple months, no biggy.

keep it out of the sun or use a good sunblock if you are in the sun for a while.

Two weeks in you aren't going to affect the healing process one way of the other. The goal of moisturizer is to keep the skin from drying out. The most common mistake newbies make is using too much. As previously posted, you won't know what it's going to look like until it heals - four to six weeks.

    • looks like a solid shop!
    • You know, while I was getting tattoed we spoke about the full sleeve, since I've started with the idea to get it done (not in a short amount of time because due work my week is full) and he just said something about the druid girl. But we haven't any conversation about it anymore so it was kinda a flash instead of something wanted.  Then here COVID-19 came and we used to stay in lockdown per 2 months and just now tattoo studios opened (like one/2months ago) and I have to find a window of time where I can contact him. So basically nothing has started yet :)      This is what actually happened with the wolf. I went him saying "I want the face of a wolf here" and he did all the rest, surprising me with that moon etc so I was kinda surprised with the final effect because it wasn't what I exceptecd but It was what I wanted without even telling him the background.  It sounds weird but I gave him "free hands" and imho the result is stunning. So basically I would find the main subject (woman) and the background which suits the wolf (forest etc.). So I wanted to research something in terms of what I have in mind. But still, I will contact him for sure as long as we both have time to spare, finding what I like the most/suit the best  
    • He's a good artist... your concepts are all in the same vein... except the dryad girl which is a different direction. They aren't anything like what he was suggesting though. These also aren't what I'd think of initially when thinking of woman portraits... they are more surreal than what people commonly ask for.  Makes me wonder if you showed them to him yet? I'd give them to the artist, tell them a few things that you like and things you don't like about them... and put down a deposit so that he can start drawing.
