    More tattoo regret

    I know there’s been a few posts about tattoo regret and I’m not sure if I’m truly regretful or just having some doubts. I’ve never had such a large tattoo, it was just finished a couple days ago but I’m starting to question whether I made a mistake. I’ve been reading a lot on the forum about good and bad tattoos and I’m not sure if that may be part of it or I’m just needing to adjust to having such a large piece on my body. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I’m almost in tears. I’ve never felt this way with my smaller tattoos even though a couple of them are awful. I got most of them when I was younger and just accepted them. I guess I’m just needing some reassurance even if it’s from complete strangers that I didn’t make a huge mistake. Every step of this tattoo has caused me some anxiety and I’m wondering if maybe that’s a sign that I shouldn’t have gotten it or if I’m just going through an adjustment period. I don’t really know anyone with such a big tattoo so have no one to really talk to about it. I would like to get more and actually want to finish off the sleeve but I’m afraid I’ll just feel even worse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mermaid Tattoos

    Crappy picture but my Ariel is finally done. This is 2 days after and I’m pretty bruised and swollen (my skin is super sensitive). I’m going to be working on a full sleeve with King Tritons castle, an octopus and possibly Flounder. I love Mermaids!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the info! Munkaspeni actually works out of Immaculate. My current artist that is working on my half sleeve used to work there as well. I haven’t heard of those artists but will definitely look them up. I can’t travel at the moment as I have a 6 month old baby at home, it’s hard enough getting away for 2 hour sessions in town at the moment! I haven’t attended a convention here yet but I think I’m going to go this year and get a feel for what’s out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Edmonton’s very close, only 3 hours or so. I looked her up, her work is amazing! Are you from Canada?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Been checking out this artist and thinking of getting a full leg piece by him. What does everyone think?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Your First Tattoo Story

    Haha yeah, back then (1995) if you were 14 and had parental permission you could get tattooed. Actually that was one of my better little tattoos compared to the ones I got when I was a little older. I have a 5 month old son now and no way in hell is he getting tattooed till he’s 18 and has the money to afford something good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Your First Tattoo Story

    I was 14 and my dad took me to get my first tattoo, it’s a little rose wrapped around a treble clef on my ankle. Looks like shit now but I loved it! My mom almost killed my dad as she was and still is extremely anti-tattoo. I’ve thought about getting it covered up as I want to eventually get my full legs done but I’m a little nostalgic about it!

    Half Sleeve to Full Sleeve

    I’m almost done getting my first half sleeve which I obviously didn’t fully think out. I hadn’t gotten a tattoo in years and thought i would be done after getting half sleeves. Now I have the itch and am thinking I would like to maybe get my lower arms done eventually. Would it look strange if I got totally different tattoos on my lower arms or should I expand upon the one I have??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Day 5

    My tattoo artist was pretty vague when it came to aftercare. She said wash it a couple times a day and put Aveeno on it. On day 5 how many times should I be washing it and how many times should I be applying lotion? It’s peeling like crazy in spots right now cuz my bra strap slipped down and rubbed the F*** out of it while I was driving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It was so painful and it rubbed all the skin off so within an hour it went from no peeling to that. I haven’t ever had anything like that happen with a tattoo so my first reaction was utter panic! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Getting tattooed again!

    Thank you so much! I love it so far but can’t wait till it’s all finished. Im a worried so I don’t think I’ll be able to really enjoy it till it’s all finished and healed up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cover ups

    I really want to cover up the tattoos on my wrist with matching designs. One is colour and the other I black. The coloured tattoo is double or triple the size. Would a qualified artist be able to cover up both of these with the same design or would I have to go for different designs for both?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
