  1. I'd say it's just a bad-ish scab, given the area it's kind of to be expected, with all the natural movement that occurs there. Not hot or painful is a good sign. I'd just keep *lightly* moisturizing it, and let the body heal itself. You'd be amazed. And if necessary you can get it touched up later.
  2. Yes, the back is rough, but you power through it because you're tough and powerful. also, don't be afraid of breaks and communicating with your artist. I get completely naked, but I'm a dude so it's different. There's a thread here called "full back piece experience." Check it out for further ideas.
  3. looks to me like over-application of moisterizer. could be creating a zit. can't see it scaring; probably not. you'd be amazed at the body's ability to heal itself. I had big scabs on a piece of mine during healing--much worse than this; two years later the spots look perfect!
  4. There're right and wrong ways to do this. The right way is to slog it out as a shop assistant, eat shit, pay your dues, then MAYBE earn the right to be an apprentice. Then eat more shit, pay more dues, then MAYBE earn the right to tattoo. Do it the right way.

    my feeling is that's going to not look the greatest on the body, as it's not a figure, but rather a background. you know?
  7. looks totally normal for a healing tattoo
  8. Hey guys. In like 2016 a film student made a video of an old session of mine getting waves and leaves added to my turtle by Takashi Matsuba in his old studio. Thought I'd post some stills from the video here. The video's locked, but it's cool.
  9. awesome! I feel you, but all indications are that it's safer here in NYC than other places now. I've got a session planned for this Friday in Brooklyn and not worried. Cheers!
  10. flows much better on the arm than I'd thought. but yeah, I wouldn't add anything else. have fun!
