  1. I just scheduled an appointment with an artist in nyc. i'm planning on getting two tattoos, one of them is a tattoo on the top of my foot. similar size/placement: i already posted a question about how tattoos in this location stand the test of time (didn't get any feel free to chime in about that). now, i know foot tattoos are painful AF to get...but i'm wondering how painful they are in the hours following the tattoo. i don't live in nyc. we're taking a trip there and the appointment is mid-day. so after the appt, i'd like to be able to walk around the city some more. is my foot going to be really sore though? what was your experience?
  2. I ordered some saniderm to heal my new tattoos. Never used it before. I have a few questions... -How soon should I apply the saniderm? I believe this artist will just cover the tattoo with plastic. Do I apply it right away, or should I wait until I get home that night and remove the original bandage and apply the saniderm? -I've read to replace the first sheet after 24 hours. the 2nd sheet can be worn for like 4 days. Should I apply another saniderm sheet after that? or do i let the tattoo breathe and use lotions from then on? I'm not sure if I'm supposed to keep the saniderm on until it's fully healed or just after the initial phase.

    Bras and rib cage tattoos

    I'm planning on getting a large side rib cage tattoo soon. what im most worried about is the healing process because if I wear a bra, the band will constantly be rubbing against it. but I can't get away with going braless since I have a large chest and I don't think it would be appropriate for me to go to work like that. Maybe there are some women on here who know of solutions. I was thinking I could get some of that boob tape people wear with evening dresses...not sure if that will be effective or not. Or is there a way to wear a bra and keep my tattoo protected?

    i think everyone agrees with you. but it doesn't also make you an evil person if you purchase a dog from a reputable breeder. and there are reasons people go to breeders instead of shelters. some shelter dogs are great, some shelter dogs have a lot of issues. not everyone has the time, energy, or living situation that can accommodate behavioral or health problems. i'm not saying puppies from a breeder are perfect, but you know what you're getting more or less.

  6. I'm thinking of booking an appointment with her for a floral piece on my bicep. What do you think of her work?

    Existing tattoo.. rework/cover up... Help me pls!

    I had a tattoo I didn't like, so I put something much larger "on top" of it to disguise it, but I didn't cover it up. I can still see the original tattoo...and I hate myself for not covering it up. Because now I'm thinking about getting the whole thing removed/covered up. Everyone's different, but if you don't like the tattoo now, you probably won't like it when there's other stuff around it either. It will make it less noticeable, but it won't go away.

    I think the issue is that it's too 2 dimensional so you can't see the difference in planes between the key and the foilage. I think shading would fix that

    Another question about foot tattoo experience

    cute wigglebutt
  11. So I just had the idea of getting the phases of the moon tattooed onto my fingers in white ink. White ink because I don't want obvious tattoos on my hands. The chances of me actually getting this are slim...but it got me wondering....would the white ink tattoos end up looking like scars on my fingers? i have very pale skin.
  12. Like I said I probably won't...I was just curious

    Top of foot tattoos

    How well do these hold up? I want to get something that is the same size and placement as this one:
  14. Just an example of what I'm talking about: But you've probably seen these types of tattoos all over pinterest. I love the look, personally, but I'm worried about how they'll stand against the test of time. What are your honest thoughts about that? Will they fade quickly or become fuzzy?
  15. i've posted about my next tattoo a few times but i'm still undecided. i'm getting corresponding tattoos on my achille's heels. i could go for a color spectrum like the one below, except maybe 1/3-1/2 of that length. i'm actually thinking i'll bring in a landscape photos and just have the colors represented in the order they appear [that probably makes zero sense...but it's basically an abstract piece] or...i could do a leaf on each heel...i like the two toned look of the one below. anyway, which tattoo design do you think i should go for? im not sure why everything looks crossed out.
  16. yep. it's not worth the free touch-up. just pay a better artist to fix it. they also might be able to give some suggestions on how to make it look better.
  17. Since there's a chance this could've been caused by the artist, no I wouldn't go to him/her.
  18. I'm not sure what the cause is. It could be that the artist didn't send the ink far down enough? It could be that the healing process was interrupted. In any case, it'd be very easy to touch up. Although I'd probably go to a different artist.

    which one should i go for

    I am not going to this artist...i think she's in europe. she just happens to have done two tattoos that match what i want. i'm now thinking that instead of a gradient line, i could get a brush stroke with colors fading from one to another. you're probably right about the lines never being straight. plus i like doing arts and crafts. it would have a dry brush look like these ones:
  20. I want to get an vibrant, abstract color tattoo on my be more specific, a gradient strip of color (i really like the way these colors flow together but this is probably closer to this in shape/size i'm hoping for i'd also like to use brighter colors than the blacks and blues above, but this was to give an idea of the general outline. can you please recommend an artist who can create really vibrant color tattoos? besides Amanda Wachob who is forever unavailable. the artist needs to be based in the USA and preferably on the east coast. you're welcome to provide your own thoughts on such tattoo, but i'm not really looking for criticism here.
  21. i'm more concerned with finding someone who is skilled in this...i want to find someone who knows how to do color in a way that it stands out and stays put.
  22. Just saw this on Gary Gerhardt's instagram. I think it's pretty cool/cute. I've always been drawn to the South West and cacti, as dangerous as they are. Where would you recommend having it tattooed? I was thinking it might look good on the inside of my heel/ankle area. This is hypothetical of course.
  23. it is 100% pointless. not only is it microscopic, it's in a part of the body most people wont see anyway. she might as well have repeatedly stabbed herself with a pin.
  24. i think this one wins the prize for "someone who doesn't actually want tattoos" tattoo.
  25. yeah i made that mistake once. but many go to the celebrity artists like dr. woo and jonboy...who i'm sure charge a ludicrous amount for their tiny tats.
