    Hello from Northern Ireland

    I'd like to nominate the above comment for the Internet Hall Of Fame. In fact, I'd like to print it out and hang it on my wall as it's maybe the most unbelievable statement that I've ever read in my life! Bravo!
  3. Mike, where do you see laser tattoo removal technology going in the next 10 years? What was the biggest advancement in the LAST 10 years?

    Wasn't sure where to post this... does anyone know what the appointment situation is with Horitomo, or if he generally does conventions at all? Could've sworn I saw his name on the list for the London Convention but now I can't seem to find it...

    Stopping at the butt, but leaving it somewhat open-ended (no pun intended) in case I want to continue it in the future.

    Haven't posted in a bit... Session number... 7 or 8, I think, from Mike Rubendall today. Finally hit the ass, which made my ribs seem like a breeze. About two months ago Thomas Hooper finished my torso: And then one from Scott Campbell about 3 weeks ago:

    That's two so far with one more to go. As it was happening, I started to realize that longer, continuous lines would've actually been preferable to the short start-and-stop lines. The heaviest pain/shock is within the 1st second the needle touches my skin!

    Relationships and tattoos

    My girlfriend has no tattoos, and I prefer her like that. She can of course do whatever she wants with my full support, but right now I like her the way she is.

    Upcoming Tattoos

    Rubendall is starting my back on Tuesday. I'm a little nervous to be honest! Also I spat out so many different ideas and elements during the consultation that I have no idea what the final product even looks like yet.

    Best post tattoo care?

    Just adding my routine for no real reason... Leave the plastic wrap on until the evening, and then take it off in the shower. Don't spray high-pressure water directly on it, obviously, and usually I'll put soap on a part of the body north of the tattoo, and then lightly rub the soap in with my hand. Get out of the shower, and let it drip dry, or pat it dry with a clean towel. I usually sit around for an hour or so before I do anything else. Then I put a THIN layer of Aquaphor on it. Before I go to sleep, I wrap it lightly in plastic wrap, just for the first night. Then I remove that plastic in the shower the next day, put on Aquaphor, and then do my best to keep it clean during the day, wear loose clothing over it, etc... Then at night I shower (so I'll shower twice in one day for the first few days of a new tattoo, even if I normally only shower once a day), and then more Aquaphor before bed. So in total I put Aquaphor on it twice a day for 3 days. After that I use unscented Lubriderm. I apply it more liberally than I would with Aquaphor, as it "evaporates" quicker. I do this for about 2 weeks, even if it seems to me that the tattoo is basically healed. And... that's it! Never had any problems with this method.
