    Posting to just 1 thread is enough . . .

    Tattoo Opinions/Advice

    That's not a bad tattoo, and it's symmetrical plenty enough. Just get more around it.

    Tattoo blowout advice

    You could try a laser, but personally I wouldn't worry about it. As far as being "precise" that depends on the operator - but worst case is you might have to do a touch-up (that hopefully doesn't have another blowout).
  4. Most artists only charge for the actual time they start inking until when they set the machine down for the last time. Every tattooist has their own personality and interpretation of time - but the main thing is that you come away with a great tattoo you get to wear forever.
  5. You've gotta go pretty far to ramp up the shock value, these days.
  6. Wow. I've seen the ear lobe reconstruction results before but the removal procedure is a new one for me. *shudder* Nipple removal, too.

    Upside down mistake

    Yep. Get 3 more ampersands in a pattern so you've got them facing all directions.

    Got my first tattoo! But..

    right. You'll end up doing your entire shoulder eventually. You can tie it all together then.
  9. That's not looking so good - but at least part of the result is because the "tattooist" didn't know what he/she was doing, and you were the guinea pig. If its red and sore you might have an infection going on under there. I'd recommend going to see a doctor if you haven't already done so.

    Hustle Butter?

    Primary word here is "hustle".

    let it set for awhile. 10 days is too early to tell or get a touch-up.

    Mixing styles?

    I like her work - but it seems more traditional than your reference photo above.
