  1. I'd want to see some of their tattoos in person. Also, take a close look at anything with actual lines; to me, the lines look wobbly, especially in any of the circles and webs.Also, I think a lot of them look very dark and monochromatic; I'd be concerned with how they will hold up over time. Just one man's opinion.
  2. I think you need 10 comments on other people’s threads first.
  3. Nobody is going to fall for your shitty scam.
  4. I’ve been waiting for COVID to die down, but want to get my conceal carry permit this year. Without getting into politics, the divide between the two sides and the growing extremism has me to the point where I bought a handgun after 10 years being gunless. I hope I never need it!
  5. Don’t even explain your F***ing nonsense, just go away.
  6. Take your shitty flash drawing somewhere else. This isn't eBay.
  7. It looks like a grade school artist drew it. That’s just really bad. Go online, look at some good art and see the difference. If you want to learn to draw, take a class; it’s not intuitive for everyone, myself included.

    Hey guys!

    Wherever you got that, don’t go back. That is really rough. I’m not saying that to be mean, but you really need to make better choices. That looks like they went in with a jackhammer and the lines are shaky, uneven, just really bad. You are ruining your skin.
  9. I'm finishing up a body suit this year and at 64, I've been concerned about my skin continuing to be fit to tattoo. I took a break during COVID, so I lost two years, but I've had four appointments in the last several months. In preparation for the appointments, every day I applied cocoa butter liberally on the areas to be tattooed for a full month prior to my appointment. My last two appointments focused on the ribs and in addition to not hurting nearly as much as my previous rib tattoos, both sessions healed in record time. All of the red was gone within two days, I had very little pain and they healed very nicely. I've probably got another 6 sessions left and I'm going to continue doing this; hopefully it will help all my sessions heal quickly. Anyway, it's not a scientific experiment, it's only one person, but I thought I'd share it. It certainly won't hurt and it might help.
  10. I wouldn’t cover it up just because of what it stands for. I doubt many people still associate elbow tattoos with prison any more.
  11. One week in you don’t know anything. They take 4-6 weeks to heal, longer if they went in rough. If you scab up, they will definitely take longer to heal.
  12. I didn’t have any problems, but I don’t dry heal. I use A&D for a couple of days covered by Saran Wrap, then cocoa butter for a week or so. I’ve healed both knees and elbows that way. I had a 2 1/2 hour rib session last Friday. That’s healing really nicely too. I put cocoa butter on the ribs every day for about 6 weeks prior to the session. Seems to have really helped with the healing.
  13. Many people do. It’s your body; mix and match as much as you want.
  14. Quit trying to push this shitty app. This is a forum for tattoo enthusiasts, not tattoo artists. The scummy spammer above did not have permission to post his shitty application, they made 10 quick, inane posts so they could post it.
  15. Nobody wants your shitty services ass hole. You dredged up an 11 year old post simpleton.
  16. I have a full back, entire right side including portions of my stomach, working on the right side; the back was no where near as bad. For me, the only problem areas were the love handles and above the ass crack. If you could sit for the stomach You’ll be fine.
  17. You can’t cover thick lines with fine lines. Find a GOOD artist (or two) that does coverups and get a consultation to find out what is possible. With tattoos that dark, you’ll probably need some laser sessions if you want something light and feminine. Choose wisely or you’ll wind up making it worse.
  18. If I thought they'd read it, I'd recommend a sticky thread, but everyone thinks their situation is special.
  19. Just copying and pasting same thing I told the other person “If it’s not hot, oozing or painful, it’s probably not infected. Tattoos take 4-6 weeks to heal, sometimes longer if they went in hard. You just have to wait and see.” No matter how you phrase the question, this is the answer.

  21. Tattoos take 4-6 weeks to heal, longer if they went in rough. No matter how you ask the question, you’ll know what it looks like when it heals. Quit looking at it with a microscope.
