Saying Hello

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm just officially introducing myself. I'm a longtime lurker finally stepping out. I have 9 tattoos, Technically 11 but three of them were combined to make a chest piece + half sleeve. Right now i'm wanting to extend my half sleeve on my leg to a full sleeve but I still have a faint sun burn above my knees from 6 months ago from where my shorts didn't cover and it's still a bit red/tanned. I've shown my dermatologist and they said it would just take time, that I did some damage. I'm wondering if it's best to wait until my skin returns back to it's pale self or if it's okay just being a tad darker and having had so many months pass. It sucks because that's where I wanted to get more work done at.

Here are some of my pieces. Sorry for the bad quality on some of the pictures. All the Japanese work was done by Chad Hunt who was at Name Brand Tattoo In Ann Arbor, MI at the time. The Tribal was done a few years prior at a different shape so he was able to work with what I had. The Skull and snake was done by Luke Barnes and the wolf head was Kyle Hath both at Harlequin Tattoo in Hamtramck, MI.

I did have sunscreen on my tattoo's just every other area. I wasn't planning on being in the sun as long as I was and i'm not one to normally get a lot of sun.

    • I agree. It looks sweet. My bet is you'll probably grow to like it. At least give yourself that chance!!
    • I did a quick search and found only a no-info website page and almost no input facebook page. The Owner's name isn't even prominent or possibly even listed, so I can't really react to historical reference artwork or ability. Not comforting here from the outside.  The example you posted could be understandable to the closely initiated, but it's too small to provide any real detail. Hopefully you're going much bigger if you're intending to add a tree or two to the mix.  The results, feel and comfort gained (or not) from your consultation is going to be paramount.   
    • Looks good. Leave it alone!!! A dark tattoo on dark skin, you’re going to wind up with a big unreadable mess if you keep screwing with it.
