  1. If I was the artist I'd tell you to take a hike. "Fixing" tattoos makes them worse more often than better in my experience. The tattoo isn't even healed and you're complaining about it. Rushing to "fix" something is a recipe for disaster. I can't tell you how many times I was getting tattooed and someone came in with some shitty glob of ink on their body crying about how they hated their tattoo so they ran out and got a coverup and now it's even worse. You've basically got a lot of lines. They can't move them, they can only tattoo over them. My honest recommendation is "Don't get any more
  2. Laser removal isn't like an eraser on a piece of paper. Depending on the tattoo, it's more likely to fade it than remove it. Do your research and set your expectations or you're likely to be very unhappy with the results. I'd find someone good at coverups. That's probably a more realistic approach.
  3. Well, the knee isn’t fun, but if you got through ribs, you’ll be fine.
  4. Looks like what happens when you use too much lotion. Too little is better than too much.
  5. This isn't a forum for scratchers.
  6. As @oboogie said, if it's not hot to the touch and there's no pus, you're probably OK. Not much you can do at this point except wait for it to heal. Scabs that thick will likely take a couple of months, so pour a drink, light a bowl and relax. Your skin is shiny, and that usually means there is too much lotion. If I had scabs like that I'd probably let it dry heal.
  7. When did you get it done?
  8. It would fit, but it's gonna hurt! Looks like you already know that though.
  9. You're putting something permanent on your body. Not the time to worry about price. Simple tattoos can be harder than complex tattoos because you'll see every minor flaw. There's no place to hide. Let's put it this way - It's still cheaper than laser removal and a cover up.
  10. I don’t think this work is as good. Get your tattoo from the person that is fluent in the style, not from the “I can do anything” Tattooer.
  11. His work looks OK to me. Price? That's up to you to decide. The thing is that a lot of the work of a tattoo is setup and clean up and that's the same whether you are tattooing for 10 minutes or 10 hours.
  12. People get body suits. Get a tattoo any place you can stand the pain.
  13. It’s not done healing. 4-6 weeks for normal tattoos. Given those scabs, I’d think AT LEAST two months.
  14. You don't get an infection from washing it, you get an infection from NOT washing it. For the first week, I wash it twice a day and put a little moisturizer on it 2 or 3 times a day. Key word being LITTLE. So many people post pics on here and the tattoo looks like it's swimming.
  15. If it's not painful to the touch, hot, or oozing, you're probably fine. I think most pimples come from people slathering on aftercare products by the quart, but you're doesn't look bad. You use just enough moisturizer to keep the skin from drying out.
