    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Wasn't too bad, was probably one of the easiest ones I've sat through honestly. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    New with tattoo regret

    It's a nice tattoo, also it will fade over time. I think trying to cover it to make it less bold is not going to give you the results you want. Give it a year or two and if you still feel uncomfortable with it maybe you could look into laser? Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    Advice on a badly executed tattoo

    I say if you hate it, give it a year or two to fade a little and then cover. Should be relatively straight forward to add to achieve what you initially were looking for. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk
  4. Imperfections are what makes each tattoo unique and beautiful - just like people! Nothing in this world is perfect, and nothing should have to be. Enjoy your tattoo and embrace the perfect imperfections! Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    Raised spots on tat, could not post in advice forum!

    I had bumps on some of the red on my feet that remained tender for 3 months - rest of the tattoo healed perfectly in a couple weeks but the red refused to heal. Ended up using steroid cream on it and cleared up after a couple weeks. Has been perfect since. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    First tattoo as a quote :)

    Personally I don't think that tattoo is done well at all Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    New and Terrified! :)

    I always get anxious/excited before a tattoo and won't sleep well the night before. I'm usually calm when it comes time to sit but my palms will sweat the entire time even tho I feel completely chilled. As for whether it's the right thing or not - you'll never know until you do it IMO. It's something you have thought long and hard about and isn't a spur of the moment decision then I think you'll be ok. Try not to make it too big a deal, at the end of the day it's just a little ink, and worse case scenario is years down the track you hate it, but there are options for covers and laser you can explore. Personally I think the best fix for a not so great tat is to get better ones to take the focus off ;) so easy fix hehe Good luck! Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    So I wanna get a hand tattoo...

    If you feel anxious and feel like you need to hide the tattoos, then it's probably wise to wait until those things aren't an issue to get your hands done. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    Just got this crazy watercolor portrait of Courtney Love done by Smel Wink @ Requiem Tattoo in Victoria Australia. Sat around 6 hours, pretty bloody stoked with how it turned out.

    Family tribute - opinions wanted

    Personally I find thin script tattoos, esp over larger areas look odd - the body isn't flat enough or something and it always looks distorted/unbalanced. It works when it's bold larger script but when it's a few lines imho it ends up looking weird. The idea about using imagery instead of text seems way better. Maybe your wife's wedding ring, star signs, fave childhood toy, fave food, hobby etc etc could be some ideas? Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    Nothing wrong with the tatt, imo he did an incredible job. Yeah it's not exactly what you asked for but at least it's good work. And as you said you agreed after seeing the design, just give it some time I'm sure you'll grow to love it. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk
  14. I had a reaction to some red ink in my feet. The rest all healed perfectly but the red was bumpy, inflamed and painful for nearly 3 months. I ended up applying steroid cream which helped settle it but made the black healed parts react instead - got little pimple like bumps all over. Luckily both reactions went away after I stopped the creme and now it's all good. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk

    Bruising or blowout?

    Bruises change colour, as the blood breaks down it will turn yellow etc, if its been the same colour since it started then I'd think its safe to assume blowout. Sent from my MI 6 using Tapatalk
