  1. Great, thank you! Booked an appointment in January;) I love his style.
  2. Thank you! Cabbage can be really nice, I know:) What can you say about this artist?
  3. You are right. I am sorry. Funny, I was told today that 'this cabbage' is pretty.. it was an awkward process of explaining that this is not a cabbage, but a flower. I will try to move on and relax about this tattoo. Thank you all!!
  4. All the nice works there done by guest artists, unfortunately
  5. It is new relatively. I don't like it from the start .. I was so excited to find Dan artist who really listen and gives attention, so it lead to excessive relaxation. I saw the sketch without shading, it seemed ok. Then he added the leaves above freehand. First mistake. Then he added shadowing, through it was discuss several times before that I don't want a lot of shading. So now it is unbalanced and cartoonish. These are my inspiration pictures and my drawing. The artist is great, he has a lot of wonderful tattoos in portfolio - suppose it wasn't his best day.
  6. I like the plants above the tattoo but it looks like a waste of space.
  7. Israel. Poland and Ukraine are also options, but it may be a bit tricky to arrange.. What do you think about this sketch? I've just received it from some of the local artists whom I talked to about touch up.
  8. And.. I've planned this tattoo for about a year. I've been at several studios, I've read endlessly tattoo forums and subbreddits and educated myself as much as possible. So this tattoo is even more painful to see. If it was a walk-in newbee mistake - ok, it happens. But all this research- and for nothing? .. really discouraging
  9. I want skulls and ravens and bones, but I struggle to imagine what will look nice near my existing tattoo. It may not be cohesive at all.. like, really, what will look nice at the other side of the forearm?
  10. That's a problem. I've seen lots of pages of local artists, and if we leave aside those who make minimalistic or geometry (mandalas everywhere!) or old school tattoos, there is nothing left. It is really strange - you open the portfolio and you see all the styles from watercolor to black work. No signs of personal style.

    Bumps on black ink

    JessicaRay, no verdict, unfortunately. My bumps were smaller and just went away one day all of the sudden leaving a bit raised lines.
  12. I have a Pinterest board with photos of different body parts with tattoos that (vaguely) look like ones I want, so when you open the board you can see the whole picture in one glance. Which one to do next depends on the finances and avaibility of artists and plane tickets

    I am sorry for intruding, but have your doctor discussed with you an option of biopsy? I went to the doctor with similar issue and that's what he said can be done to understand what's happening in the bumps and so to treat them appropriately
  14. Maybe not bad, but definitely not spectacular.. It's a pity we don't have a choice of great artists here in Israel. Minimalistic tattoos are so 'in' now here
  15. Thank you, SStu! Any ideas how to improve the tattoo? I feel it is too primitive and unbalanced..
