  1. My appointments with Garver and Rubendall were cancelled. Blah. That being said, I do have a cool commission happening. 🙂
  2. Hi All - I hope that everyone is safe and well. My heart is broken for all of our friends and family that have been furloughed or had income disruptions. I have been doing what I can to support!
  3. Gah...hoping that my appointments can still go on next month in NYC. #covid19
  4. So, koi heading down means you have completed your transformation and journey. Congrats on that. My dragon koi faces in progress.
  5. Think less is more. Unless you have a giant arm, you have more than enough going on. Let the design breathe.
  6. @Hogrider - Many of the "brightener" product contain Vitamin C and/or some other types of mild acids (re: not retinols but salicylic acid) sold in regular "anti-aging" facial creams. The "brighteners" simply exfoliate. My concern around these product is sun exposure. Anytime you use Vit C or mild acids, the number one rule is to avoid sun exposure due to increased sun sensitivity.
  7. Happy healing! @Virtualanimegf
  8. My advice: sit well, tip well and don't bring drama (no micromanaging). See how it goes. Good luck!
  9. Let's play this through. Your artist tattoos you while sick. Your work looks subpar. You get sick. The name of this post would have been "My tattoo looks horrible because my artis was sick...why didn't they just cancel! I have this crappy tattoo forever! Plus I had to take a week off work because I'm sick!"
  10. Leave it be. Remember, laser isn't like an eraser. Doesn't work like that...let it heal and it will settle.
  11. Whomever said that to you was a jerk. First, the tattoo was for your mom and dad - it's yours and you got it for all the right reasons. Second, I don't know if it was a "friend" that said this to you. Regardless, the comment was inappropriate. If you have a chance, you should tell them how much the comment upset you. THEN, get on with enjoying your new tattoo.
  12. Looks good. Let it heal. My only coverup (after a bunch of laser) needed a touchup in about a year. I think you have nice tattoo!
  13. Happy healing and welcome!!
  14. You are right - get it done and you never have to do it again! @Oiocha
  15. This thread is spiking my anxiety.
  16. I had this issue on both of my lower legs, especially my shins. I found a pressure point in my upper thigh that I pushed on for hours. Gah!
  17. FFS. This conversation/thread is exhausting. Let's talk about good tattoos.
  18. Happy healing @Oiocha! That is some heavy black. LOL. I can't even imagine Tomo filling in my crack...
  19. Old farts for the win! Life is's shouldn't be.
  20. Yep, that will fade quickly!
  21. Spent some time with Garver this week starting my sleeve. Silly excited.
  22. Big hugs to everyone. Life is short. ❤️
  23. It really is shocking, concerning and, sadly, I feel like I don't I have much to add. 😞
