    Greetings!

    For me, if I am well rested, as relaxed as possible, well hydrated with water, and well fed, something nutritious, an hour before the tattoo seems to go easier. I like early morning appointments instead of late in the day since I would not have spent my energy early. Don't stress about the placement, the pain is momentary, and you'll have a beautiful piece of art forever! Ask your artist what they recommend for keeping clean in the airplane and airport. Some artists recommend keeping it wrapped longer, or cleaning frequently. See what they say. I hope you enjoy your trip and your first tattoo! - - - Updated - - - For me, if I am well rested, as relaxed as possible, well hydrated with water, and well fed, something nutritious, an hour before the tattoo seems to go easier.

  7. Lots of beautiful imagery you could pull from a sad oracle priestess! You could go all black and ornate inspired by the illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley, full color and painterly, and many other styles in between.
  8. I really like your girl with the owl headdress!
  9. What kind of styles are you drawn to?

    Help!

    A similar rash happened to my first tattoo, I found out that I was allergic to Lanolin which is an ingredient in a lot of lotions and creams. Mine went away a few days after I stopped using the lotion that had it. I hope your rash clears up soon!
  11. Thank you! Glad to be here.

I'm also starting to learn tattooing so that I can get back to creating artwork all the time, I'll keep my portfolio updated! Here is one of my favorite tattoos on my thigh that my husband did for me. Nice to meet you all!
