  1. looks normal to me. won't hurt to follow Dan's advice. probably wont hurt to follow plan A.
  2. Yeah, I'd say they did a great job with that cover. And the white ink will fade over time. All of my white now looks skin tone - but everyone holds it a bit different.
  3. Right, and I've never heard of a blowout happening during the healing process. Covering it up from the sun during the healing process certainly won't hurt. 2-3 weeks in you should be able to safely apply and rely on sunscreen. Showering in chlorinated water won't hurt anything. Just don't soak or submerge for any period of time for a few weeks.
  4. It's not healed yet. Ankles take a long time, so you don't really know what you've got, yet.
  5. The compliments always ring more true from another collector or a real artist - and both of those will be much less likely to be looking for "meaning".
  6. welcome! We can inject a fair amount of experience and strategy.
  7. not necessary, but if you want to try the lines could be fattened up. The whole thing could be a bit bigger.
  8. Indeed some ink occasionally falling out in the healing process isn't uncommon and touch-ups are easy and normal. I've never heard anyone say that it would take anywhere close to a whole year waiting time to accomplish that, tho . . .

    Hello from Aust.

    Huh. Hard to imagine there is 20 years of experience behind that. Were you asking him/her to do a style (watercolor?) that wasn't in their portfolio? Just 7 weeks old? You're gonna have to wait a while before proceeding. Post up a link to your intended new artist (once determined) and we might be able to assist in the vetting process . . .

    I guess the photos got immediately deleted, too . . .
  11. My preference is for larger pieces, but I certainly see the validity of a large collection of small ones, too. Two things smaller tattoos have over large ones that it's easier to plan for obtaining and paying for them.
