  1. I visit family there every few years. It is really weird to hear about the stigma, but my family there were always accepting about my tattoos. I didn't know the tattoo stigma still existed there since there is a huge counter culture trend. I see many young and older adults looking punk, goth, emo, club kid, hipster, or just an oddball look. Many of my tattoos are concealed though, except for 1 small one. I never had an issue with it over there. Some of my family members over there have tattoos, too. Lol. The tattoos they have are Western traditional looking and concealed, though. I gu
  2. Hello! Beautiful work being done! I am sorry to hear about your psoriasis and I think it is awesome you have a tattooer willing to work with you. My doctor tried to talk me out of further tattoos and I told him that wasn't going to happen. I have some autoimmune issues, too, and the doc was saying my body could reject the ink. I told him it hasn't happened yet and I have had tattoos on me for 18 years. Btw Godzilla fan? I haven't seen the kanji for it. Does the steroid cream lighten or thin your skin or the tattoo's ink? I was curious if steriod injections would work for you. I have h
  3. Hi and welcome! I love bird tattoos and your's lovely! I avoid the sun and use spf, too. Honestly, who wants leathery skin and pre-mature aging? It kills me when ppl have nice tattoos and they refuse to use sunblock outside.
  4. Wow, Mike from Evolve has excellent work. Thanks, I did not know about this shop.
  5. I have a few tattoers in mind, but I am not sure to go with a talented but less known person or someone with a flashy rep. Is it ok to post their names or instagram link here? The deposits are all non-refundable so I want to confirm if you tattoo aficionados see the style or name is worth it. Honestly, a lot places have not even called or emailed me back except for 1 really high end shop and 1 newbie shop.
  6. Sometimes I am surprised strangers blatantly stare. At Disney World, the happiest place in the world (lol), the attendant said to the crowd, "wow, look at her tattoo. And the big guy she is with." I am petite under 5' and my husband is 6' tall large guy with plain skin. I guess i look more bad ass than my husband?:o Ugh, one time I was working, I was slightly bending over and a tiny bit of tattooed skin was showing...this fucker lifted my shirt to look at my tattoo. What kind of person would do that to a chick he doesn't know? Do people have boundaries at all these days?
  7. Most of my tattoos are birds, Japanese theme (I am part Japanese), and jewelry work (pearls, chains, and pendants). Strangers always notice the birds. I tell them I like birds. Lol. Most of the tattoos I am planning for are animal designs. I am an animal lover! It is true...I love my dog and my 4 birds.
  8. I have not really enjoyed anything new this year. However, Against Me! came out with a live album. I like punk music:cool:
  9. My mom flipped out when she saw my back tattooed....I was 15 and still in an all girl Catholic school. She was very upset. Lol However, my father never saw my tattoos before he died. I was actually withholding that info from him because I know he will say, "you need tattoos like you need a hole in your head". I am the only one in my religious family that has tattoos. My family is traditional and rather narrow minded, but they got used to it after a few years. My auntie was ok with the tattoos but asked me not to get any tattoos on the thighs. Lol I guess she thinks that is tacky for wom
  10. Wow, lots of interesting and talented work! Thank you! - - - Updated - - - Many of these tattoo shops I never heard of until recently. I am scouring the threads of this forum and looking at tattoo shop reviews on Yelp, Nj.com, Time Out NY, Gothamist, and other sites. Even the comment section on online articles are a wealth of info.
  11. Thanks for the referral! I have been looking at Immortal Ink's website recently. I have been planning to set up a consult with 1 of the tattoers.
  12. My last tattoo was 5 years ago and now I want to add more to it. It was an anklet style pearl and metal chains that have a St. Andrew pendant with a swallow swooping in. My aesthetic is jewelry realism. It sounds weird but I like jeweled, intricate work. I am a girly chick, if that explains it. I wanted to add reddish chains to the anklet, on the top of the foot. Maybe even update some of the work to make it more cohesive. All my tattoos are black and grey. Color bothers me sometimes.... I am not sure if it would go with my skin tone being olive tanned, like Penelope Cruz. I also wanted
