    let's see what you're coming up with!
  2. That piece doesn't really fit into any particular style aside from neo-traditional, which is a broad term used when any artist's personal style is varied off of one or more other styles. There is a lot of Japanese in there, but the artist has taken it off into a new direction. You're going to have to find an artist whose style you like and let them do their own interpretation.
  3. Yeah, I wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out.
  4. As long as we're not talking about a new tattoo (healed at least 4-6 weeks), sunscreen is how I go.
  5. I'm not familiar with any Japanese specialists in Minneapolis or West Coast Fla. There used to be a couple in the Miami area and Chicago probably does, too . . . are you willing to travel?
  6. This'll probably revive the thread "what's worse - lining or shading?"
  7. Yes, that's not abnormal for work that's less than 4-6 weeks.
  8. No - I'm just talking about how the ink will tone down from bright black to flat, dark grey.
  9. Pleased to report I was able to retire this past fall . . and that meant feeling comfortable about FINALLY getting my forearms done. Fully healed now so here they are: Artist: Randy Muller, Eye Candy - New Orleans
  10. Yep, healing is 4-6 weeks and it'll be months before the ink fully settles in and the blacks aren't quite so dark and bold. Everything will tone down a bit.
  11. a few laser sessions on the initials would open up more possibilities . . .
