Hello!

Recommended Posts

My name is Justin and I am new to the forum. I am 24 years old and I have 4 total tattoos (all pretty big ranging from 2-5 hours of sit time each). I am actually starting the removal process on one next week to get it covered up with something I enjoy. I have also been dabbling in tattooing on the side with just a starter kit and fake skin (no tattoos on any real skin yet).

keep in mind laser tattoo removal is not that, it's really just tattoo lightening ,

and if you want to be a tattoo artist, please don't just dabble with a Chinese eBay kit,

go get some art education and then maybe if you are lucky enough to get an apprenticeship  and proper training  at a reputable shop,

then in 3 or 4 years you might get a job as a tattooer.

What Dan said. Either do it the right way or don't tattoo at all.

The world has enough scratchers.

    • 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.🤓
    • If it is scarring what else could it be? Could it be that the ink is too thick ??
    • Laser removal is not an eraser. You'd still faintly see the tattoo. If it is scarring, then yes, you'd still see the scar, too.
