    What do you moisturize with?

    I switch it up...I have used all of the above. When things get really bad, I use coconut oil. Eucerin is also good stuff.

    Hi guys, and a question

    I hate this stuff. Part of the experience is the vibe. I get that artists are human, too but the not having time to draw is a red flag. WHO SAYS THAT OUT LOUD? Can you drop by the shop? Explain that the situation made you uncomfortable? If not, then if you really were excited to have this person make something for you, do it. Me, I would tend towards the latter.

    New and Terrified! :)

    Good decision @Surface! If you read the initiation posts here, the forum is filled with tattoo regret posts. Don't put yourself in that position. 🙂

    Hey...welcome. Get the okay from your doctor first! While some anxiety is normal, if you are super stressed then maybe you shouldn't start with a 1/2 sleeve, which is an ambitious project for a first tattoo. Maybe think about getting something smaller as a test to see how you react and heal. There is no rush in making the decision.

    Some of the worst ever.

    I am not opposed to freehand custom tribal - at all. I mean, look at Sef Kavafornia's work. Actually, compare his work to the photo above. Post review, IMO, there *is* no comparison. It's not snobbery to know the difference between a good tattoo, a mediocre tattoo and a bad tattoo. Of course, criticism needs to be fair and not personal. All good if you don't like traditional tattoos but to Dan's point, traditional tattoos are not the same as jailhouse tattoos. There may be an overlap is some imagery but they are vastly different things (do some research on the history of both American traditional, jailhouse, Chicano, and Russian tattoos). As far as today's tattoos looking like shite in 20 years, I have this to offer - everything has a "date" associated with it. Clothes, hair, cars - whatever. Just because it is from a different decade doesn't mean that it's shite. Maybe less fashionable, but quality is quality.

    Hey to everyone

    Just use this thread for now! How about going back to the same artist for suggestions?

    Hey to everyone

    Well, if you continue down the tattoo path get used to imperfections. The more tattoos you have, the more imperfections there are! Several tattoo's of mine are less than perfect and it's okay.
