    Advice wanted please.

    Yep. It all depends on how the artist's design fits in/around your existing work. In any case many laser techs charge by the minute (with a minimum), and both of those old ones aren't very big - so hitting the black shouldn't add much if any extra expense overall for each session. They are dark enough that you'll likely need 3-4 sessions to lighten it up a good bit.

    Hiya, Derby. Welcome.

    Hello need some advice

    Really nice script can be imaginative if it'd done right - or you could go less literal and come up with an image that reminds you to stay positive.

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Congradulations @Gingerninja! What's wrong with you? The same as the rest of us = not enough skin!

    Hello! Album covers as tattoos. Thoughts?

    I'm not specifically in tune with artists with that design work - especially in specialty areas of Europe, but I'd be surprised if with some research something close by doesn't pop up. Rob Borgas is in Hungary:

    Or . . . find an artist whose original art you love just as much. Where are you from?

    I think we have hijacked @Kai Lo's thread. Sorry. @J.Stell Well, that depends on your definition of "time settled in". Part of that photo above is months healed, I believe - and part fresh, but I'm not sure anyone has been putting white on black like that for more than just a few years, so 10-15 years down the road . . . ?

    Jennifer - Do you know Nathan Mould? He does awesome white on black coverups.

    Absolutely. I haven't been to any of the Voodoo parties yet, because we always seem to have visitors in town for Halloween weekend or something. Michael lives down the street from me. Randy did my back and both half sleeves.

    Tattoo sleeve ideas - opinion wanted

    Welcome! My idea is to hang around here for 6 months or so, educate yourself on the community, the art, how to vet an artist (no reflection of your current work intended - it's nice), recognize styles and view hundreds of images. By then you should have a good idea of what you personally would like to wear for the rest of your life.

    Welcome, Joe! You and I live in the same city and have the same quest! I have some work from Eye Candy and Downtown but travel a bit have have numerous pieces from various regular and guest artists from Texas shops in Houston, Austin and Dallas. Welcome!
  14. Doesn't look "square" to me. I like it. Another option is to get another tattoo by the same artist, and then just add to the 1st one during the same session. That'll basically be free, then.

    New here. Looking for recommendation.

    I remember a similar thread from a couple of years ago. Try searching "norwegian"
