  1. Yep, I'd think that $$$ has a lot to do with it. If you're an average working stiff it takes time and self control to save up the money for a large piece. Sure you can spread it out over time, but who wants to look at an incomplete tattoo for 5 years? At least with assembling small ones you can enjoy each one as it's finished. Instant gratification and all.

    So, you decided that you wanted to be part of this community because we can help you?
  3. There's already enough tattoos that look like they were done by 9 year olds. 🙄

    Ink Recall HELP

    I don't have the slightest idea of which brands of ink have been used on me. I like the idea of throwing caution to the wind. Really, if I was going to drive myself crazy with things like that, I just wouldn't get tattooed. To my mind they be fairly spontaneous and without serious forethought.
  5. Yay, I meant totally zero offense too. I just chuckled as soon as I read it, not even 100% sure why. Guess just seemed like anyone into that symbolism wouldn't even notice bumps. Hope it heals quickly.
  6. Gets a Satanic tattoo... Worried about little bumps... Sorry, just caught me funny. 🤣
  7. I'm betting just a very minor skin reaction to the wrap. I don't see anything to be concerned about at all. Leave it alone and it'll go away.
  8. Condolences to all that knew and loved him.
  9. Posting up some pics of where you're currently at would surely help everyone see what you're describing.
  10. Seems to me that you should be here a little longer before you begin laying down judgement on others that have literally spent hundreds if not thousands of hours responding to people's questions and trying to help them through their experiences.
  11. I don't get it either. If anything, it gave me a sense of accomplishment and overcoming of anxiety, not creating it. I think too many people today is the simplest things as the end of the world instead of just getting over it and going on with life. Not to sound like an old fart, but I think too many people today don't know what real hardship really is.
  12. Props for excluding the scratcher crowd.
  13. LOL, I'm gonna have to remember that one.
  14. Hmmm... the wrist skin is thinner and doesn't take well to being overworked. And that looks like it was overworked/went too deep. Was this done in a shop? Did the tattooer have much experience? To be brutally honest, it looks poorly done overall.
  15. Don't do anything and ignore it. No tattoo is perfect (like everything in life) and that isn't worth worrying about or trying to fix. Just enjoy it and plan your next.
  16. I agree, I can't imagine what good they think it does.
  17. If they can completely cover a black tattoo with a different design, I'd think covering yellow and orange with a darker red would be simple. The color probably will be different than ones done over bare skin, but should just add depth. Any decent artist should be able to easily handle this. Also, welcome.
  18. Welcome! Enjoy your stay.
  19. Welcome, glad that you found us. You can start posts in other sections after 10 posts. Feel free to ask questions here too, many people do.
  20. Very proud of myself and the family today. Our daughter and I both donated blood for first time. My wife and sister-in-law also donated for 4 units from the family. Glad my needle phobia is subsiding enough to let me help those in need.
  21. Firstly, some pics would help people understand what you're dealing with. Secondly, you're doing this to yourself. Take a deep breath and stop obsessing over it. It takes a while to get used to a big change, relax and try to just ignore it for a few weeks. It just a tattoo.
