Happy Christmas

Recommended Posts

Hello - and Happy Christmas all - 

Not been contributing much due to lockdown/shutdown/eiderdown....

Had a couple of tattoos recently but all are stick and poke and not relevant to this site  - 

in any case....   Peace and Goodwill and here are my 12 things of Christmas...........

i)  They all do that

ii) Totally normal

iii) Not finished healing

iv) Not a blowout

v) A blowout

vi) A blowout a blowout a blowout - if you say it enough it becomes really weird....

vii) Stop covering it in stuff

viii) Stop covering it in other stuff

ix) No really stop covering it in stuff

x) Blimey - that looks odd

xi) No - its great but you really need to address your underlying anxiety issues

and my own contribution - 

xii) all ink is cool - change my mind.

Hi @AtomicMagpye! interesting lyrics there from last month!

So how do you compare stick and poke with the usual tattoo machine method?

Hello there - I have one professionally done stick and poke from Habba Nero at the Brighton tattoo convention - it was pretty much pain free and healed almost immediately - it was also pretty amazing how quickly it was done - almost as fast as a machine I reckon.

I have several not professionally done (at least not in the traditional sense) - my wife is an accomplished artist and I can sometimes persuade her to put on some gloves, pick up a 9RL and give it a go 🙂 - she doesn't like tattooing though as it is a long process.....Ive attached a photo of the pro one and one of the ones done at home during the lockdown.

@AtomicMagpyeThanks! I must confess I can hardly tell the difference between the end results of the two methods...

Seems like your wife is accomplished; does she dislike stick and poke tattoos, period? or is it just the tattoo artistry that she prefers not to do it too much?

Hello again - I should have made it clear - she is not a tattoo artist - she does watercolours and other stuff and is very good at those things....

I hope she likes tattoos - I have a couple 🙂

 @AtomicMagpyeSounds like she is indeed very accomplished.

Tattoos used to be overwhelmingly such a man thing, years ago; but not any more; although there are some women - even with a lot of artistic flair - who still prefer to be 'cleanskins'.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
