  1. My first thigh tattoo, I had horrible whooshing for quite a while. With my second, none at all. The second time around, I iced it the evening of, the next day and periodically after that. I also used Tegaderm the second time. I for sure recommend the ice, and only recommend Tegaderm if you are sure sure sure you won't react badly to it. Ask me how I know. I agree with all the other don't shave until fully healed comments. It's winter, who cares? Hi, and welcome, from the west coast! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello!

  6. When my dad and I got tattooed together last year, we each chose different tattoos that appealed to us. The process of getting tattooed together was significant and memorable for us, even though we didn't choose the same aesthetic. TLDR: get what you love, and enjoy the experience with your pops!

  7. I had abdominal surgery today. It was more of a shitty thing when it was on the horizon, but it definitely wasn't as bad as I was anticipating. I was the final surgery of the day, so I had to fast for what felt like forever, and the hunger and associated nausea was probably the worst part. Although it was a shitty thing to be anticipating, it actually went well, and I'm feeling really quite good post surgery. It's really late here, and I can't sleep, so I'm enjoying the LST "back catalogue", bonus! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. I used to have the worst time sleeping in a tent, I think I understand your pain. I do better when I can keep my spine kind of aligned, so a little padding under the ribs and between the knees can be helpful. Tattoo time is really hard when your body hurts :( Hey @SeeSea, I remember you asked on another thread about flying post thigh tattoo... I did this 2 weeks ago, and I totally recommend bringing a giant ziplock and asking kind baristas to fill it with ice for you post security. Also, I sprung for an economy plus seat, with my fresh thigh getting the window seat. Money well spent. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I have used Tegaderm in the past post surgery, with no issues as I recall. That was on my ankle. After 3 days with derm on my thigh, I have a nasty looking rash. Heat rash I guess? Just wanted to chime in to say maybe testing on different areas of the body may give different results. Bummer for me though :( Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Can. Not. Wait. To take this tegaderm off! And soak in the tub [emoji7] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Voted! It takes only a minute :) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
