    7 year old tattoo artist-in-training?!

    There are laws in place in certain areas (I don't think there's any federal statues/regulations) where minors can't get tattooed without parental permission (or can't, period, depending on the area). Personally, I think you shouldn't go near a tattoo machine until you're closer to your teen years (12-14) due to the incredible amount of patience you need to be a tattoo artist (young kids aren't exactly known to sit still for long periods of time, even if they're playing a game they like). Like others have said, I'd say keep her to drawing and observing other artists and when she gets a little bit older, let her start practicing with an actual machine.

    Hand Tattoos

    What's the protocol for the aftercare of hand tattoos? I figure hands would be pretty sensitive after said tattoos. I've gotten a shoulder tattoo before and I used aquaphor and moisturizer post healing. I'm guessing the pain is pretty bad too on hands since there's minimal muscle there?

    Temporary Tattoos are bad

    I mean, anyone can have a bad reaction to whatever they use in the peel-on temporary tattoos or the airbrush tattoos you can get at amusement parks. If you're an airbrush artist yourself, airbrushing a tattoo idea is a great way to "test" if you actually want the tattoo permanently. I got a really neat airbrush blue-gradient small tribal design on my arm when I went to an amusement park when I was a teenager and I did my best to preserve it because I LOVED it. The estimated time it would last was like 3 days and I managed to make it last like a week because of how well I took care of it.

    Relationships and tattoos

    I've always loved tattoos on girls/boys/whatever you identify as. My boyfriend wants to get tattoos, but is currently waiting to be in a better financial place to get some. I'd be fine with dating someone who never intended to get a tattoo (as long as they don't hold my tattoo over my head).
  9. Tommy is an excellent tattooer (I honestly feel like he was robbed of Ink Master, but that's a thread for another day). In regards to "awful", tattoos really are "beauty in the eye of the beholder". What looks like trash to someone looks like absolute gold to another person. As long as you can't see the old tattoo peaking out through the new one and it's technically sound, it's a good cover up tattoo to me. Cover ups are very difficult considering all the factors tattoo artists have to consider with the old tattoo and the new one.
