  1. @Gingerninja I feel your pain, and hope it's healing better for you now - Ive just had something very similar happen on my 2 headed snek beast :-/... Ive so rarely had a problem healing that I had forgotten what a pain it can be..... I came down with flu (or at least a nasty cold) on the Wednesday after the tattoo - and that appears to have had an impact on how well I'm healing - which is bollocks as we say in the UK.
  2. Also Ginjerninja said: "I had my right knee colored in last Thursday (the line work was done last October). At this point, my left knee cap can stay empty forever!" Utmost respect to both of you - mine was mostly around the knee and not directly over šŸ™‚ - ... somewhat interestingly I think I'm going for a piece next that will mean I have the joys of the knee ditch... and then after that inner thigh - marvellous šŸ™‚
  3. Twin headed tree snake made of trees and snakes around the knee - connects with the green man etc - done today. Knees are interesting aren't they šŸ™‚
  4. MichealShane.... thanks - we've released a load of stuff over the last few years - there's an Album called The Golden Section on iTunes/amazon etc... but you can listen to a bunch of free stuff on Jo's soundcloud page (Jo is the singer) - theres some of her solo stuff on there but if you scroll down there's some Kodiak Island tunes also.... https://soundcloud.com/jobartlett
  5. I absolutely love the atmosphere in the shop I go to - they are a fine and marvellous bunch of people and it really does make a difference. The experience is always filled with laughter, positivity and a sprint of adventure - It's fantastic to see how genuinely enthusiastic they all are about their art and they have created a place that is truly inspiring. I have a fair amount of work done now and I would not be interested in adding to it in a place that was not in some way magical and inspirational - but that's just me. šŸ™‚ New music -see below for a new video of a folk band I play guitar in (that's allowed right?) I am from the UK and have no idea what an NBA is or why it is being played off.
  6. ongoing leg weirdness by the magical El Tragico from Saturday.... next up two headed snake blastover to cover some eighties/nineties "tribal" and a bit more leg...
  7. having a nice *short* tattoo session next Saturday... a marvellous eye thing above the tree person.... anything over 4 hours for me is too long - as I have discovered to my detriment..... it sort of goes... first 20 mins... ouch 20 mins to 2 hours ... oh that's nice I have endorphins. 2 - 3 hours... that's sightly less nice.... 3 - 4 hours... please can I go home now. I have picked a poor hobby for someone with a low pain threshold šŸ™‚
  8. Here's how it's all hanging together at this point - at least from one angle... leg has been started and booked in for a bit more in two weeks - it will all join up eventually šŸ™‚
  9. Hey Jac1961 - marvellous to see you add to your collection - and it looks great!
  10. A bit of a departure - by El Tragico - GreenMan/GateKeeper.... done yesterday
  11. Hello - I'm in the UK also - given it's a trad design I don't think anyone would make that connection - if it was a stand alone realism piece of a stabby thing then that might give me pause.... Enjoy your new tattoo!
  12. I agree with Jack If it's the execution rather than the sentiment that you now regret then that is a regret not worth carrying. "I wanna get the writing covered cos its awful" - no it really isn't. The universe has us as it's way to view itself. We were all made in the heart of stars, and entropy will put you back to the four solar winds before any regret is material.. The stars pass no judgement on a will to mark your time here - and your time here is marked well with the sentiment you chose. Be well, Live long and prosper. Do not regret your ink. etc...
  13. Hey - marvellous - nice to see someone else has an appreciation for a rat - here is mine:
  14. Hello and welcome to the forum - others will probably be along to tell you to give it some time - and I would agree - this is a very new tattoo and you need to wait until it's fully healed to be able to have any perspective on it - give it a couple of months to fully settle in. Aftercare - I've had a couple of tattoos now and I have healed really well using Bepanthan (in small amounts) - but others will tell you (with some vigour) not to go anywhere near it. I have also healed with no ointments, herbs, spices, spells or oils at all and these have turned out equally well - so.... One piece of universal advice I think I can give is whatever you use don't use too much of it, and don't soak the tattoo (as in submerged for any length of time) in water. - What did your tattooist recommend for aftercare?
