  1. What does this tattoo mean?

    Maybe she saw the design somewhere and just thought it looked cool? Maybe someone commented on the tattoo one time and told her what they thought it meant, and she simply forgot?
  2. is tattoo to dark?

    Did you check this artists portfolio before letting him/her set the needle in your skin? I would never get a tattoo from someone that I hadn't seen pictures of previous work from, and I doubt that you would either. You said you didn't want the tattoo in portrait style, but you showed him/her that picture, which is indeed in portrait style. I don't mean to be mean, it just doesn't make any sense to me getting a tattoo from someone who clearly doesn't master their craft. The good idea is that yes, it's completely fixable! I've seen worse tattoos covered up and turned into masterpieces :) There are artists who specializes in cover-ups. I linked this artist in another thread, and I'll do it again here: This artist is in Norway, so I'm guessing you're not willng to travel all the way here to do it. But there are tons of good artists out there, just google a bit. Good luck, hope you find someone who can make it shine!
  3. I thought the whole point of Saniderm and similar products was to keep in the plasma, enzymes etc. to help the healing process? At least that's what Saniderm and Dermalize's instructions said, right after getting tattooed to "let the tattoo bleed for 15 minutes, and then apply the first layer", more or less. I know everyone has their own way of healing tattoos, just thought I'd throw this out there, liquids building up under the bandage is normal and not dangerous at all :) I kept the first layer on for a little over 24 hours (about 27 if I recall correct). Washed the tat with the right kind of soap, let it dry completely and then smacked on a new bandage that I kept on for 4 days. Theeen Hustle Butter 3 times a day for 3 weeks. I actually still rub on some HB like once a day, and this is my 4th week. Dunno if I really need to though. I can't remember babying my other two tattoos this much. To be honest I don't remember using any ointments at all. And they both turned out just fine (aside the fact that shortly after getting my first I hated it lol).
  4. Lower leg tattoo

    Well this mug is norwegian ;) I'm pretty sure the majority are americans though, yeah. Cool! I'm a metalhead myself, and the music that's been made (and still being made) here in Scandinavia is something I'm very proud of - especially black metal. Hehe yeah, norwegian and swedish people have no problems understanding each other. Spoken danish is a bit difficult for me to understand, but if it's written it's almost identical. Finnish is completely out there, could might aswell be chinese. Your quote in norwegian is "det finnes ingen svar", - 'there are no answers' for those who may wonder - so yeah pretty close. Actually I don't think I've heard Lifelover before, just checked it out now. Sounds tight! Reminds me alot of another swedish band called Shining (check out their song Låt oss ta allt från varandra. Darkest shit I've ever heard, see if you can find a translation and you'll understand what I mean...) Ontopic: I wish more people opened their eyes to Saniderm or Dermalize. It really is night and day compared to that ol' foil wrapped on your body. Never healing a tattoo the traditional way again!
  5. Norse forearm tattoo

    Thank you! I'm very happy with it, and I look forward to continuing it :)
  6. Tattoos inspired by music?

    Ah, my bad, guess I should've done the research before posting a new thread. Mods feel free to close it if you want :) Nice tattoos man! Johnny Cash is king.
  7. Not loving new tattoo

    Good luck on your next appointment!
  8. I'm curious to see if there are others in here who have gotten tattoos dedicated to their favourite bands, singers, artists or just inspired by music in general? I love music, especially metal and rock. So my second tattoo was heavily inspired by the band Tool and their.. wierd artwork. It's been 7 years since I got this tattoo, but I still feel like it needs something more added to it. Just haven't gotten to it yet, I guess. The pic is from the day I got it if I recall correct. Didn't have a healed pic and couldn't be arsed to take one now, so I snagged this from my Facebook. It's not as crisp ofcourse, but it's still in pretty decent shape (thank god for SPF 50). Show me yours, there must be some in here :)
  9. can i still turn this around?

    I believe there's almost nothing a good coverup artist can't make shine. There are artists out there who specialize in coverups, you know :) I'll use electriclinda here in Norway as an example: Anything's possible!
  10. Lower leg tattoo

    Did you go see the doctor? I'm guessing there are very few people in here qualified to give you proper medical advice. And since I'm norwegian I'm curious to what the swedish phrase is? :)
  11. Opinion on my new tattoo

    Looks amazing, congrats! I'm not that into colors, and I love the fact that you're doing a japanese themed piece in black and grey. Sure it's gonna be epic :)
  12. Nice. It's been 7 years since my last one, I guess hitting 30 has made a nervous wreck about this stuff
  13. Yeah I thoght it might be :) Oh another question, could bumping into furniture etc damage the tattoo at this stage?
  14. I just removed my second layer of Saniderm. To my surprise there was ink on the bandage when I removed it, I guess that's normal and all, but I couldn't see any fluids under it before I removed it. The tattoo looks great, and feels alot more healed now that I had this layer on for 4 days. 5 days since I got tattooed. I can see no scabbing, apart from a small piece of skin sticking out. It's so small that I thought it was dust or something and almost tried to remove it, until I realized that it's probably best to leave it be. Maybe it will scab more later in the healing process, time will show. Applying the Hustle Butter made it feel great, but I the whole area feels a bit.. stiff, in lack of a better word. Kinda like a sunburn that's almost healed. I'm gonna keep applying a thin layer of HB 3 times a day for the next 3-4 weeks or so. One thing is for damn sure though, I'm never healing a tattoo the old way again. I've seen the light, Saniderm all the way from now on! Fingers crossed I won't need any touch-ups!
