  1. So? An update on this? Hi! If you look at his IG from 8/13, you will see my arm!
  2. Two weeks away from finally finishing my sleeve with Garver. Yeah!
  3. @HogriderRight? 🙂 I found this antibacterial, no rinse soap that they use in hospitals. It *should* work.
  4. Hey folks, I am having major surgery a week after getting tattooed. I plan to Tegaderm for 3-4 days but I will still be very much healing while in the hospital for a few days. My primary concern is infection since hospitals are full of nasty infectious things. Ideas on cleaning my arm and chest while in the hospital? I wont be able to get out of bed to wash it off with antibacterial soap. Unscented, alcohol free baby wipes? Antibacterial wipes? Thoughts?
  5. @oboogie Your tattoo makes me ridiculously happy.
  6. Are you seeing a dermatologist? At this point, I'd be seeing a derm not a regular doctor.
  7. LTC is no more which is a bummer but life goes on. Miki and Marcus did one helluva job putting on an amazing show for 15 years. It's crazy to think that the only time I attended was the last year of the show.
  8. Rest, eat, hydrate...prepare your mind and body. You will be fine!
  9. Tattoos look amazing. Be easy on yourself. Give it time.
  10. My favorite is a rose & hoju morph from Grez. Indeed i have amazing memories but, yeah, it's my favorite.
  11. No photos to share right now, but we finally finished my leg sleeve last Saturday. Yeah!!!
  12. If you do your homework and find a great artist, then you will end up with a great tattoo but probably not the one you wanted. Something to possibly consider is lasering it to be lighter. Laser is a long process, painful and expensive but something to consider to maybe lighten it up for a coverup.
  13. I use Tegaderm all the time. Sometimes I don't scab/peel; sometimes I do. Just keep it clean, very lightly moisturized (I don't dry heal) and don't muck with it. 🙂
  14. MDK - hey. I strongly suggest finding another artist.
  15. If it peels and gets itchy, that's 100% normal. You can use unscented Lubriderm or Aveeno but VERY sparingly.
  16. Hey there - you are using WAY TOO MUCH ointment. Clean your tattoo gently with antibacterial soap, pat GENTLY with a paper towel or let air dry then use a rice sized dab of ointment. You are smothering your tattoo! When did you get it? Is that your first tattoo? @Marciyah D
  17. Just get "Twin Peaks" in Gangster font tattooed on your stomach. *sorted* 🙂
