  1. Weird Healing

    I would try using vitamin E oil rubbed lightly on it once a day for a month or two.
  2. Back tattoo ideas to complete

    The back is a lot of real estate to waste. I would recommend stopping until you figure out what you want to do. What's the hurry?
  3. Post shitty things you have been doing recently

    I hope things work out for you. Sometimes life just sucks, but you plow through. Not the same, but 10 years ago I was in a bad motorcycle accident. A month in the hospital, a year in physical therapy (then periodic PT for about 5 years), surprise divorce, move from my home of 15 years, new job, my dog of 15 years died. Almost everything that could go wrong did go wrong. I just hung on, my parents didn't raise any quitters, things started to turn around and I've been on a pretty good roll ever since. Attitude is everything.
  4. Post shitty things you have been doing recently

    Happened to me 10 years ago. It turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I didn't realize how unhappy I was until I got away from that mess. Now I'm covered in ink, playing music, restoring an historic house, married to a great woman. Hard to figure how it could have turned out better.
  5. New here & to tattoos

    Got my first one at 52. I started with a sleeve and I've been working pretty steady for the last 7 years. Now have two sleeves, two chest panels, full back and working up the right leg to tie it in with the chest and back. May wind up with a body suit. All by the same tattooer, Japanese theme. Go big or go home.
  6. Slightly nervous

    Maybe you're nervous because it's going to hurt like a bitch ... maybe. What's very sensitive on one person may not hurt bad on someone else. As my artist always says, just because it hurts is no reason not to get tattooed.
  7. Please help.... Tattoo related

    Looks over moisturized. I'd let it dry for a three to five days and see how it looks.
  8. Tipping Question

    I've got some really bad Karma from my younger days that I'm trying to make up for so I always tip well.
  9. Tattoo advice

    What is it that you don't like? If you can't define the problem, you probably can't come up with a solution. That's a nice tattoo, I'd leave it alone. IMHO you are more likely to make it worse than better by screwing around with it. The best thing you can do is use this as a lesson to put more thought into future tattoos, if you are unsatisfied with this one for some reason.
  10. Just say no. She's going to sit there and watch for 5 hours??? Just one man's opinion.
  11. That's rough. As @Gingerninja said, if you think it's infected, go see a doctor. If not, let it heal, do your research and see a professional about getting it fixed. This 'bargain'' tattoo is going to be very expensive.
  12. Upcoming Tattoos

    Thanks. Jesse Tseronis in Winchester VA is my artist. We're working on a piece that goes from my ankle up to connect to my chest panel and back piece.
  13. Upcoming Tattoos

    I had my calf done and the only issue I had was that if I was sitting for a while, when I first stood up, the first several steps were painful. Other than that, I guess I was lucky because I didn't have any problems. The leg ditch wasn't fun, but I've had way worse. The stomach for example - ieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Good luck!
  14. It's a very good looking tattoo. I wouldn't think about changing anything until you've had if for a couple of months. It takes at least a month to six weeks to completely heal. I would stick with that artist, they are doing a great job.
  15. Infected tattoo

    In that case it IS very unusual and I would talk to them about it. I would also never go back. In tattoos, it's one strike and you're out.
