  1. Cool thread. My dream tattoo is an Icarus back piece.... I'm saving the real estate but seriously doubt I'll ever be able to afford it :(
  2. Almost done!!! 1 more session needed for grey wash background. By Mark Duhan, Skin Deep Ink in New Milford, CT (hummingbird was already there) Back of the arm is swelled up pretty good. This is all about my boys. The flowers are for their birth month. Artist did an awesome job of rolling with my idea for a watercolor/ feminine polka trash colorful mish mash!

  4. I understand, and I didn't mean to start a BDSM or feminism conversation. It's a tattoo that I kept coming back to and looking at done by an artist whom I think is exceptionally talented and is close to where I live. I'm considering having a tattoo done by her at some point, though nothing like this image. It's one of the more violent (without being campy) tattoos I've ever seen, so I thought I'd throw it out there. I've never been tattooed by a female artist before and I really want to.
  5. I had a dream the other night about a tattoo - never had this happen before. I guess that means I should probably get it!!! It was a rose shape/outline with galaxy stars, nebuli, outer space-y kinds of images inside (a la Andres Acosta style - out of Austin, TX). It was on my right shin, but since I have no leg tattoos yet, I should probably start with my calf...

    Makes me think of Slim Goodbody!! https://www.google.com/search?q=mr+goodbody&espv=2&biw=1455&bih=705&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=IMRXVfbUKMrHsAWy2oCwBg&ved=0CCAQsAQ#tbm=isch&q=slim+goodbody&revid=312509846
  7. Your tattoo looks great. Don't worry about a thing. Keep following the after-care instructions that your artist gave you. Nice work, especially for a first tattoo!!
  8. I completely agree with this. Plus, less noise.
  9. I hear ya - I'm having one of the roughest heals I ever had... Looking forward to when it's just my skin, ya know?
  10. A silhouette of my son - angled really well so that when I hold my arm out at a 45 degree angle from my body, it looks level. The negative space is a motherhood symbol. Part of an unfinished half sleeve for my 2 boys.
  11. Sternum, right in the center where it drops off to your guts (I can only speak for how this feels on a lady.... but it's pretty much like your lungs and heart are being shocked with an electric wire). Fun stuff.
  12. My re-entry into the tattoo world has only served to remind me how exhilarating it is to see your ideas transformed into powerful artwork AND how much it sucks to heal a tattoo! My sensitive skin never ceases to amaze me - this time around it's an allergic reaction to the sharpie my artist used to free-hand a small part of my new piece. I'm just a delicate flower... :o
  13. I've been lurking for a while, but finally decided to sign up! I live in CT and recently started a new half-sleeve after taking several years off from getting tattooed because I had a baby to care for (physically and financially). I'm so psyched to be getting tattooed again and I really just want to talk about it! ;)
  14. Ladies, I have been following Megan Jean Morris on Instagram for a while and I am completely blown away by her recent piece titled "Rough Tuesdays". It's posted on her Instagram (dated May 4). Her write-up about it just made me more interested, but I read through some of the responses and some people are calling it a rape tattoo (it looks as if those comments got deleted though). It's such a disturbing image, which is only accentuated by her incredible talent. What do you gals think about it?
