    Infected tattoo

    I am so sorry dude. While I have never gotten an infection I did get one messed up tattoo from a professional studio that came highly referred by friends. Pissed me off to no end. Some was due to my inexperience and some was outright deceit on the shop owners end. It happens to a lot of people. Did the Dr do a culture right away? MRSA would be my main concern.
  2. I learn more with each assessment of each artist. Thank you!
  3. I haven't stopped in but just discovered these guys in my backyard. Worth a look? Not into the Traditional Japanese look but the B&W artist appears solid. http://www.katanatattoo.com/ (My previous meeting from the 15th went well. Nothing booked. She said she could rework it but was rather cautious about the outcome.)
  4. Just following up with a couple of threads. I have an initial meeting today with this artist from a friend of a friend referral. Any thoughts? https://m.facebook.com/TattooNouveau.WI/photos/?tab=album&album_id=512470778775277&mt_nav=1&ref=page_internal&__xt__=33.{"logging_data"%3A{"event_type"%3A"tapped_open_page_album"%2C"impression_info"%3A"eyJmIjp7InBhZ2VfaWQiOiI1MTE4NDA1NjIxNzE2MzIiLCJpdGVtX2NvdW50IjoiMCJ9fQ"%2C"surface"%3A"mobile_page_photos_tab"%2C"interacted_story_type"%3A"148947852156832"%2C"session_id"%3A"4338dc1e5d6b7e8b801b3095f5a00611"}}
  5. Yeah...that is what I was seeing hence not having a decision on his offer.
  6. Haven't even gotten to them yet honestly because of distance and time limitations. We have a few more trips up that way before the season ends and I am one who likes to see a place physically first if possible. If this project doesn't work out they will be getting business on something else as I am really really impressed with their work. I have been working in a radius of about 1.5 hours around me right now only because of time limitations for vacation days, shop hours and availability. So much shoddy work to weed through. The more knowledge about good work I gain the more I get the feel
  7. I do plan to keep looking and have been holding people to the one strike rule now for the most part since I am also taking into account the demeanor I encounter when I set the appointment to begin with and the reason they can't make an appointment. I just needed somewhere to vent since I don't have anyone who has serious ink or intentions for any in my circle. I have been using vacation time since many studios seem a bit dumbfounded if you have a normal 9-5 type job and need to work with that type of schedule. As I said, just whining out of frustration. I was also making sure my expe
  8. Just whining here. Sorry. I have been looking for someone to fix up my tattoo since I inquired here in early August. I am getting super upset with artists who cannot keep an appointment. I have met with a few but the ones who I have been most interested in have cancelled on me. It is getting really upsetting. Since this is a rework of something that was halted mid project they want to look first and won't until I do a consult. I can't put money down or make myself a paying customer if you won't meet with me. I scheduled all of these a good month ahead as that is when they had time
  9. I have have a Danzig/Samhain/Misfits tattoo, (that got royally messed up) once it gets fixed up I will post some pictures here.
  10. That makes a lot of sense.
  11. Thank you guys again for your advice! I really needed the prodding to feel ok about moving on. I had the consult last night which I felt good about and I will trek around to other places recommended on the forums here until I figure out how to make this piece better. Plus I will likely pick up on how to better vet out an artist along the way. I will also be poking around here for fun and learning.
  12. So I was able to get a consult with this guy tonight between tattoos. I mentioned that he worked in Miami and in NYC for several years before ending back here in Green Bay. I can see his work is solid and adequate not the best but able to work across styles. He said the stuff here is older but he isn't big on updating his portfolio these days.
