  1. I don't think it's starting shit to say it's rude to dump on people's new tattoos. It's too late to change anything, why are you gonna make someone feel bad? It happens so much on initiation posts. But anyway doesn't matter, I've realised this forum is not for me. You guys do your thing, I wish lots of awesome tattoos in your futures!
  2. I agree with this. You don't have to make someone feel stupid for not knowing as much as you. This is not always true. Telling someone their brand new tattoo is shit, or even that you think it's ugly, is never helpful and is pretty rude.
  3. Butterfly, bees, something like that?
  4. I think the skin on your elbow tends to be much dryer and coarser, maybe that's why those tattoos age more. I had heard of ankle tattoos being effected by constant rubbing from socks, that's why I was worried initially. Kate, thanks for your input. It's good to hear from someone who has lived with their tattoo a while. Hope you love your new tattoo!
  5. I actually find this community very negative. I used to come on a lot but definitely feel like if you don't have the "right" style or aesthetic you are not welcome
  6. I feel like you could get an awesome skull to go with "now is the envy of all the dead" I know a lot of guys put longer quotes like your first one on their inner bicep, I think that looks better than on the outer arm. I guess it just depends if you like the aesthetic of having a chunk of text like that.
  7. I don't have a wrist tattoo but it probably depends on the person. A man would have wider wrists and therefore slightly bigger would look better than a woman? My tattoo artist printed out a few different sizes on the day and let me test them to see which one fitted best, I think that's the best way to tell.
  8. I like the first one, I like the simplicity of it. Not everyone wants a big tattoo, the main thing is you find something you like.
  9. Just spotted this on Pinterest. Gotta win a prize for most hipster ideas in one design!

    I never wanted to wear headphones for my tattoo, there was some great chat in the studio, but I needed some heavy music the last hour or so to get through the pain! I would definitely be interested to see examples of very bright/watercolour style tattoos a few years down the line. They are so popular at the moment but I don't think I've ever seen an "aged" one

    I guess the question is how do you find the right tattooer if all you have is online portfolios which may be only fresh, new tattoos?
  12. I'm always staring at people's tattoos, I love seeing the awesome work people have. I hope if they have ever noticed me they realise I am staring with interest and appreciation not judgement.
  13. I definitely think people without an artistic eye have a hard time making judgements on specific things like shading or linework. Also partly laziness or convenience. I have a lot of friends who go to the same guy, not because he is the best, but because he is local and someone recommended him once, so someone else went and then the rest of them. I think it can be easy especially when you are young to follow the crowd in that sense. In terms of "good" tattoos, I certainly had a lack of knowledge before my first about how tattoos age. I don't think mine counts as good in the sense that it will stand up 20-30 years from now. Not sure if I could go back if I would change it tho, it's beautiful now.
  14. Hello! I don't really have any advice for flying but could I ask where you are getting your tattoo done in Ireland? I'm Irish living in London and considering getting my next tattoo done back home.
