    New tattoo ๐Ÿ˜

    Wanted to get one more tattoo before the year ended :) Happy New Year, everyone!
  3. I really really like going to my sessions alone. I like being focused on the experience and on connecting with the artist too. I know some artists don't mind having you bring a companion but I also don't want to be worrying about anyone elseโ€”if they're okay, are they getting bored, are they hungryโ€”while I'm getting tattooed. (Unless we're both getting tattooed.) My brother went with me one time but that was a really quick session (less than an hour) and the two of us had fun chatting with the artist while she worked. My aunt who was hosting me in Seattle arrived too early to pick me up after my appointment and she soon got bored so she and her husband left to have dinner while I was finishing up (it was a 9-hour session). One time, two travel companions insisted on walking me to the tattoo studio in Denmark. I told them they can say hi to the artist but that they wouldn't be allowed in the tattooing area. So they did that, gushed over his design, and left. Then again it might be a different scenario if you're talking about a person you really really like. Maybe weigh if having her there for the entire five hours would make the experience better for you? Otherwise, maybe you can ask her to drop by when the session is close to being done. :)

    Hello from Manila

    Thank you! Of course! Here are some! Rainbow Brite and Amy Winehouse by Jake Good at Artful Dodger in Seattle. Nine hours! My longest sitting ever. Yup I have a taco tattoo ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is by Jim Parchen at Rabble Rouser Tattoos in LA. The brave tin soldier done by Jonny Rhodes at Peoples Art Tattoo in Copenhagen Wednesday Addams by Karla Aggarao here in Manila. But she's moved to the Middle East. Peter Pan by Gmaz at Mofo Tattoos in Hong Kong. Still my most painful tattoo experience ever. Diving girl by Huka at Timeless Tattoo in LA. One of my favorites, especially since she accidentally ended up looking like my grandma. Hansel and Gretel (me and my brother) by Dyun Depasupil at his studio here in Manila. Also one of my favorites. And here are a few more pics:

    Hello from Manila

    Relatively new to the world of tattooing but I've made up for lost time by getting over 25 tattoos from 15 artists in less than two years. Sounds a little crazy, I know. It's good to be here.

    Tipping Question

    I tip. Some people expect it (usually artists in the US) and some don't (around Asia and Europe). I remember my tattoo artist in Denmark (he's British) being so surprised by the tip and the little gift I brought for him that he asked if he could give me a hug. I thought it was adorable.
  14. Happy update: my tattoo wasn't infected ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I've taken off the Tegaderm and it's peeling and healing nicely. Can't wait for my little monster to fully heal.
  15. Oh god, this kinda made me panic. ๐Ÿ˜‚ But I am holding on to the fact that it's not as painful as it was a few hours ago and that it isn't oozing. Will have it checked, thanks.
