    Pay per hour - how does it work?

    No. If I wasn't happy I wouldn't go back. I wouldn't question the price, it isn't a midwestern bazaar.

    Upside down mistake

    Get back to studying and quit worrying about a two year old tattoo! Get more tattoos.

    Got my first tattoo! But..

    Leave that one alone and just get more tattoos! It looks fine.

    Do you not get that this isn't all about how the tattoo looks? Every time you get a tattoo or get laser removal you traumatize the skin. Do you understand that? Do you get that you could do real permanent damage to your skin and wind up with a tattoo that is NOT FIXABLE? Your skin needs time to heal. You could wind up with a hot mess that can't be fixed. You think you hate this tattoo, go google some people with skin that got fucked up from tattooing and lasering the same skin over and over. Go see someone who is really good at coverups and make a plan to fix this. Be prepared to spend real money. Adding a little something here and there is just going to make it worse. It doesn't matter how many times you ask the same question, or keep rewording it.

    Hustle Butter?

    I tried this based on my tattooer’s suggestion, but it just sits on my skin. The cocoa butter gets absorbed quickly. We all react differently.

    Hustle Butter?

    Let me translate - NO. If you want your tattoos to look fresh just take care of your skin; keep your skin moisturized and stay out of the sun. You don't need $35 a bottle moisturizer; cocoa butter or something similar is fine. Just use a little every day, don't drench them, don't over do it.

    Thick scabs in concrete areas (mostly dark/filled).

    I've never had a tattoo that looked like that with well over 200 hours in the chair.

    Take some Xanax. 1/17 - posted that you got the tattoo one week ago, so got the tattoo on/about 1/10 1/24 got more shading worried about redness so you only waited 2 weeks to start monkeying with it 2/2 - post that you had it touched up 10 days before assume that would be the same appointment where you got more shading, so you got a touch up before the tattoo even healed. 2/4 - now you want a cover up. Let the F***ing tattoo heal for God's sake. You think you hate it now? You are going to wind up with a hot mess that's going to be really hard to fix. Let your tattoo heal for at least a couple of months - start the clock when you got your last "work" done on it. Find someone that's really, really good at cover-ups and go see them. Be prepared to pay top dollar if you want a good job done. I've seen some God-awful tattoos because people were in such a hurry to fix the one they didn't like. If you can't figure out how to stop and take a deep breath, you're likely to wind up with multiple cover ups. Each one is harder on your skin and more likely to show through. If people are annoyed it's because you aren't listening, you are looking for someone to validate what you want to do. Everyone has told you to let it heal, you aren't doing that.

    My brother and I rode out motorcycles from the Washington DC area to Hyder, Alaska and back a couple of years ago. This is me standing under the Hyder sign. That was a Kawasaki 2000. Nice bike but I traded it in for a Road King.

    +1 Tattoos aren’t for everyone. If you can’t wait a month or two to see how it will come out, you may not have the tempment to get tattoos. And I sure as hell wouldn’t go back to someone who would do a touch up 10 days after doing the tattoo.

    I'm not a doctor, so take my advice for what it's worth, but assuming it's not a fresh tattoo, I'd try rubbing alcohol to dry it out for a few days and see if that helps.
  14. Good luck. I don't know your artist and I don't know what you are getting, but that's not a lot of time for an entire sleeve.
