    Cover up advice

    Take some Xanax. 1/17 - posted that you got the tattoo one week ago, so got the tattoo on/about 1/10 1/24 got more shading worried about redness so you only waited 2 weeks to start monkeying with it 2/2 - post that you had it touched up 10 days before assume that would be the same appointment where you got more shading, so you got a touch up before the tattoo even healed. 2/4 - now you want a cover up. Let the F***ing tattoo heal for God's sake. You think you hate it now? You are going to wind up with a hot mess that's going to be really hard to fix. Let your tattoo heal for at least a couple of months - start the clock when you got your last "work" done on it. Find someone that's really, really good at cover-ups and go see them. Be prepared to pay top dollar if you want a good job done. I've seen some God-awful tattoos because people were in such a hurry to fix the one they didn't like. If you can't figure out how to stop and take a deep breath, you're likely to wind up with multiple cover ups. Each one is harder on your skin and more likely to show through. If people are annoyed it's because you aren't listening, you are looking for someone to validate what you want to do. Everyone has told you to let it heal, you aren't doing that.

    ah, thanks @JAC1961 honestly this is all for best. I don't think I have ever had an opportunity for life freedom like this. Just shy of 40 and everything else in my life is going awesome, so I'm focusing on that. New beginnings...hey prob some more tattoos 😉 in places that weren't approved under the marriage contract haha.

    "Was the text on the stencil?" Yeah but didn't notice at the time so double check your stencils before getting tattooed.

    For the love of all that is holy, always look CLOSELY at stencils. Also, please listen to @Hogrider. You have got to CALM DOWN. Let the damn thing HEAL. PLEASE. It's going to look like hot ass if you start messing with it already. Jesus H. Please, please, please just chill out.

    Upcoming Tattoos

    Had a consultation today for my next tattoo. It will be a tribute to my mom and dad, a pair of red roses with a dagger behind, neo-traditional, solid black and red, done by Mike Schlicher. Now I just have to survive the long wait until March 21. 😔
