    My Tattoo Collection need input

    I really like Mel Perlman's floral work. She tattoos out of Aces High Tattoo Shop (Boynton Beach location). Not 100% sure if she does cover ups or reworks.

    New with tattoo regret

    I think the mice are really cute! And I don’t see any reason your daughter can’t still color them in. I echo everyone else that I wouldn’t do any thing to try to “fix” it. It’s a nice tattoo. 🙂
  3. It is funny to me the amount of concern new-to-tattoos people have about the pain of getting tattooed, when what they should really be worried about is the INTOLERABLE ITCHING. 😫

    Hey there

    What @Hogrider said. If only more people joined the forum before getting their first tattoo! Glad to have you here. 🙂

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    I am low key obsessed with this traditional rose done for me by Tom Einheuser out of Union 3 Tattoo in Detroit over the weekend. I’m really pleased with the placement, and how my leg is finally starting to fill up! Here are links the artist and shop’s Instagram accounts: https://instagram.com/tattoos_by_tom_einheuser https://instagram.com/union_3_tattoo

    Short sun exposure new tattoo

    Similar to Dan, this is me getting ready to go the beach in Miami: I was a sunphobe long before I started getting tattooed. I'm a big fan of UPF clothing. Keep your work covered, keep it bright!

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Picked up this dog rose from Cassandra Frances when I was in London a little over a week ago: I was nervous about what the dry air on an eight hour flight back home the next day would do to it. I originally planned to re-wrap at my artist’s recommendation, but when our first flight got cancelled and I didn’t want to struggle to A) try to wash it in an airport bathroom or B) leave it wrapped for 24 hours, I just put a little Aquaphor on it as usual and this has been one of my easiest heals so far. No stinging when I wash, swelling was gone within a day, no scabs.

    Family tribute - opinions wanted

    +1 for using images vs. text/dates in the tattoo I'm not sure how you feel about flowers, but just like there are designated birth stones, there are also birth month flowers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birth_flower You could make a family bouquet with the flowers for your anniversary month and all the birthdays. There are also trees associated with birth months, the signs of the zodiac as someone else mentioned, birth stones, etc.

    More tattoo regret

    Coming to accept the tattoo(s) you have is one of the best lessons I've learned from getting tattooed. There's so much trust involved in being tattooed, because no matter how much research you've done on artist, how many portfolios you've looked at, how excruciatingly you studied the stencil before having it put on your skin, when it comes down to it, you're basically trusting a complete stranger to permanently alter your body and appearance. As someone who generally likes to be in control of everything, getting tattooed allows me to practice letting go, being present in the moment, and accepting things I can't change in a way that few other things in my life can. I only have three tattoos, but I have one that I had a harder time accepting than the others because the lines aren't as bold, the colors not as saturated, and stylistically is just a bit off from the bolder style I've learned that I prefer. I don't regret the tattoo, and I certainly don't hate the tattoo, but the point is, even if I did, it's there now! Nothing I can really do to change it so it's not worth worrying over. I think your tattoo looks lovely and well done. I agree that it would be prudent to hold off on completing the sleeve until you feel more certain that's what you want. I think it looks fine as a stand alone piece.
  12. Now that I know it exists thanks to your earlier post, yes, I'll definitely be checking it out at least one of the days!

    Upcoming Tattoos

    I was literally thinking last night how I want to go to a tattoo convention in 2018. I didn't realize there would be one in Jacksonville! Sounds like you've got some good work lined up.
  14. I'm attempting a dry heal for the first time with my latest tattoo per my artist's instructions. I was feeling pretty skeptical about it last night after my shower because my skin felt so tight and looked so dry. I almost broke down and dabbed a little Aquaphor on there, but my artist specifically said that ointments tend to make his work scab, so I toughed it out. It feels pretty good this morning, even after washing. I'm looking forward to starting to use a little lotion tomorrow. All in all it seems like I'm on track based on how my other tattoos healed. I'm also enjoying not sticking to my bed sheets because of sticky ointment.
