  1. fwiw all mine have "meaning" for me, but yeah, they need not. as to the one you're interested in, it might be something like don't bite the hand that feeds...., because superiors will punish you for transgressions. BUT the knife through it implies you SHOULD transgress: F*** the man. you also figure that hands represent manual labor: digging in the earth and shit. and so they've got like muscle memory: musicians practice in order to get their hands automatic using muscle memory. that's what comes to mind anyway.
  2. I use Dial Gold too, and would recommend it. But I'm not seeing it contains alcohol?
  3. I'm completely in the same boat. No way in hell can I do a munewari, much as I'd love to!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. everything you're describing sounds completely normal for a healing tattoo
  7. Nice! I hadn't seen this thread previously, but my backpiece is of Jikokuten, the Buddhist god protector of the heavenly musicians, mentioned in the Lotus Sutra. I could use some protection. Cheers!

    hard to tell because of the blurry picture but I agree with @Samth it looks like clogged pores due to too much moisturizer.

    Blown out ?

    just keep it; for reals it'll be a hip kind of not good tattoo. add around it, eventually you'll embrace it. we've all got those.

    Blown out ?

    that said you can always play it off that you're hip and got this kind of tattoo on purpose. it's a whole thing.
  11. Sorry to hear that; really tattoos should teach you ownership of your own body and self and F*** what others think.
  12. 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.
