  1. Hahahah @SteelByDesign I love it! I live in Pittsburgh. šŸ™‚
  2. Nice! Are you Pittsburgher or bleed black and gold?
  3. BTW, Zanctuary is a site of temporary tattoos. Most cost $14.00. My advice - research real tattoos and plan to spend a lot more than $14.00.
  4. That design is awful to begin with. There are plenty of amazing b/g Japanese style artists and tattoos that will age beautifully.

    Welcome! Atlas Tattoo in Portland has amazing artists.
  6. Hey - have you contacted the artist? I'd check in with him/her. I don'y know about the neosporin - is it infected or just really scabbed?
  7. I try to be as non-name dropper as possible. That being said, I'll let them know if one or more of their friends have tattooed me for context, not like I deserve to get in with them. @SStu The way I got i with Valerie was another hardcore collector vouched for me to the shop manager.
  8. @LemonDrop As long as the seal is good, it sounds normal to me. The goop will dry out under the 'derm.
  9. @JAC1961 Thanks - I am excited. It took a minute to get in with her!
  10. On Friday, Rubendall is going to finish the background on my right leg sleeve. Lots of swirly bits. We will still have to finish up the crane but I'll get that done next year. On Sunday, in with Valerie for a geisha!
  11. We're heading over next month for the show. Does anyone have some pro tips for the event? I know it's massive and all the videos that I have seen show really long lines to even get into the event. I'm wondering what time to line up to get in...I'd hate be be late for an appointment!
  12. Finished up my sleeve this past weekend at Pagoda by Grez. Here's a little peek...
  13. Your work looks great and will continue to look great as you add to your arm. šŸ™‚
  14. when did you get your tattoo?
  15. No to a tattoo under 18. Piercings are a bit different for me but I'd want my kid to hold off on facial piercings until 17.

    There is always second and third layers...:)

    For me, exactly no on the eyeball tattoos. Blackout tattoos, if done well, are cool. Not for me but I can certainly appreciate (almost) any well done tattoo.
  18. Yep, it happens. After a few times, you will have a repertoire of lovely comebacks. Most times, I take the high road but there have been a few times where I let loose on the person. It depends on the situation.
  19. Thank you for sharing your memories. Another massive influencer lost. Rest in Peace.
  20. @tsuk That cost or time doesn't seem excessive to me.
  21. Roses have leaves. I have about a dozen different roses on my body and they all have leaves. Guarantee you that a rose tattoo without leaves would look unfinished. Don't worry about what it looks like when you raise your arm. Seriously, a tattoo is on a living, bendy, moving part of your body. And my motto, go big or go home. It's a great size and you can't tell that it is a coverup which is the primary thing. Your artist was right. I know this is hard but you need to try to get out of your head. It's a good tattoo!
  22. Looks great! Enjoy the process. šŸ™‚
