  1. I use Dial Gold too, and would recommend it. But I'm not seeing it contains alcohol?
  2. I'm completely in the same boat. No way in hell can I do a munewari, much as I'd love to!
  3. I mean, you do you. You're right to protect yourself if you think that's what's needed. Better safe than sorry. But unless you actually think it's not as good a tattoo, and unless you've reason to question his ability, I see no reason to question the work.
  4. one way to think of it is three-dimensionally: the grey makes the green and blue pop out more, and the grey (being less important leaves) recede. you might come to like it.

    Blown out ?

  10. Sorry to hear that; really tattoos should teach you ownership of your own body and self and F*** what others think.
  11. eh, not much more that a week or so. it's an open wound, and the new layer of skin needs to grow over it.

    Ego Death

    In Buddhist traditions I could see an enso (though you'd need someone really good) or the character for mu. It's a problem though: I mean, how do you pictorially represent nothing?
