    I commissioned this from Yoni Zilber! Just saw it reposted on a new page called Tattoo Love Care, https://www.instagram.com/ttt_l_c/, created by @blackclaw @tttism @zacscheinbaum. Their description is "Aid-Promote-Educate. A place to help tattooers in need and discover new artists, causes and events." Check it out!

    Is my new tattoo gonna heal patchy

    so, you HAVE to wash it, a shower will not harm the tattoo, without seeing a pic of it we can't be sure, but a shower will not hurt a tattoo, it is usually something else, like scabbing or a poorly applied tattoo that causes issues.

    Thigh tattoo questions

    What @Hogrider said. If someone says they can do it "cheap," run a mile. Quality tattoos aren't cheap. Also, not every tattoo artist will be comfortable tattooing scar tissue. Check around and ask a lot of questions if you find someone.

    Thigh tattoo questions

    You need to see a tattoo artist to answer all those questions. Prices very widely, but good tattoos are NOT cheap. How long it takes depends on what you get and how much detail you put into it. Only you can judge "good enough." Do some research, find a good shop and book a consultation. Expect to drop a couple of grand for a really good tattoo.

    Looks like it’s healing fine to me. I don’t take white at all. Probably because I look like Casper. I had all the white disappear out of my samurai’s kimono. The longer it has to heal, the better.

    Josh Henderson, the guy who does most of my work, has a lot of his artwork up for sale on Big Cartel. I already have some, but I may buy some more.

    Heres 3 that have tattooed me recently (ish) and are selling stuff (I've put in orders to Elharper and Swearjar- Ben is doing Vans) - UK based of course. https://www.instagram.com/bendunningtattoo/ https://www.instagram.com/elharperartist/ https://www.instagram.com/swearjartattoos/ And... Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round Actually - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂

    Your favorite shop & COVID-19

    I follow quite a few local shops on social media along with others that I'd some day like to travel to and in the last week I'm seeing a reoccurring theme. The lock down of tattoo shops in many states is quickly causing financial problems for the shop owners and tattooers. Many are selling merch and paintings or prints and offering to do commissioned artwork. The shop that I've gone to the most is selling gift cards to carry them thru this lean times. I realize many collectors are also laid off or facing reduced hours, but if you are in a position to help consider throwing a little something their way. It'd be a shame to lose a bunch of good shops and artists that we'll be wanting and needing when this whole nightmare is over.

    My appointments with Garver and Rubendall were cancelled. Blah. That being said, I do have a cool commission happening. 🙂

    There are endless ideas in this genre. Try following this or similar for a while: https://www.instagram.com/besttraditionaltattoo/ but ultimately you should be looking for objects that resonate with you.

    Never heal well

    Yep, fairly common topic that you'll find lots of historical treads about here. Everybody and how their skin reacts to products is different. There are a couple of us here who practice the "keep it clean and don't put anything on it" routine with great results.

    Tattoo advice needed

    yeah, it doesn't look real saturated - but the line-work is nice

    Really wanted to check the photos but it's not available anymore! That's a pity - I'm thinking of holding a similar party in California this fall and I have a couple of crazy ideas connected to banners and stickers. I already found a good printing company: https://urbansignandprint.com/ Hope everything will go in order!

    Yeah, that's definitely still healing, too. Still quite shiny.

    Many of the artists should be checking with hospitals and health departments. These are looking for people with experience in sterile practice.

    Hi & my first big tattoo ^^

    Yes, it is a common phenomenon. It's a common question here. Take a breath and relax, it will pass.

    so me and my wife met with Oliver at the Feather Falls Tattoo expo and I got the horseshoe on my left knee ditch and she got the turtle on her left leg to go with a mermaid and octopus that he did a couple years ago.

    Art is pain. We have one inner thigh and cheek left to go and it was easily harder than the ribs. We did some shading on the cat and the difference it made was beautiful. Without further adieu:

    Finished with Mike and finally got to posting it. Super stoked on how it came out and how easy it was to get lines and shading in one session and color the next.

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Not really a new tattoo but I got a call from the shop that did my tattoos. They are having a professional photographer come in to shoot some of the artists favorite pieces and the artist who did mine choose one of mine as one of his favorites that he wanted shot. Thought that was pretty sweet. I’m guessing it’s the clipper ship but I’m not sure.
