  1. I was afraid that I would be done with tattoos once I started the Humira. But like you said, I can catch a cold at the drop of a hat. I do feel like tattoos have helped me come back into my body though, like the other posters have said. Which is something that a person without them (or a serious medical condition) just can't understand, it seems.
  2. That's funny. Mercy Hospital is now part of the courthouse annex (where my husband works, coincidentally). He was born there too! It is a nice community, if a bit judgmental. I have been treated well.
  3. I have a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. On Humira for the last 7 months or so and I have been tattooed twice since then. I might have healed a little slower, but as long as I am careful I do fine. I have used the Tegaderm film for this last one and it is amazing.
  4. I consider it the start of a half sleeve. I am in love with it. To the poster who mentioned Mt. Vernon, that's where I live. I am in a creative profession which allows me to do what I want tattoo-wise. I work in radio.
  5. Wow. What a small world. I guess I'll post a picture of the piece I got at Hell City. It's been a while since I've added a picture to a forum. Let's see if I can still do it... Ken Hoffa, Ascension Tattoo, Orlandl I consider myself an Ohioan. My dad, who is from West Virginia, considers me a Buckeye.

  7. Thanks for this forum in general, and in specific the info on Tegaderm everyone has posted. I am thinking of using it. I am on an immunosuppresant and think it might be helpful for keeping things sterile. I have had a tattoo since I started the meds, and I healed well, but you can never be too safe. I've never been to Hell City but I love the opportunity to get a piece from an artist I really admire without having to drive all the way to FL.
  8. I Stumbled on this forum looking for alternative after-care advice, I stayed because...tattoos. My name is Allis, have several smaller pieces by local artists (most of which I still like). I am set to be tattooed by Hoffa at Hell City Columbus this Friday, May 1 and I am very excited. It will eventually turn into (hopefully) a floral half sleeve by various and sundry artists. I'll post pictures as soon as I'm not on my work computer. Thanks for listening. Look forward to participating more.
