  1. Had two indentical tattoos ( one on left arm one on right ) touched up 9 days ago. One has started scabbing but the other hasn't started at all, is this normal ?
  2. Thanks guys. Yeah the iron cross is cool, when I saw it years back I instantly thought fascism
  3. Yep thats what I meant dude, i'd hate to cause offence. Shame they adopted the logo for their regime, now I'll have to find something else
  4. Thinking of ideas for a smallish tattoo and was considering the armani logo, but after inspection it looks very similar to a fascist regime back in the 1900s. I think i'll get something which couldn't be offensive, and maybe matching tattoos with my sister 🙂 thanks By the way, the pic i posted isn't mine, its off google
  5. Thanks guys. Will give it a month then before considering a touch up
  6. I've heard you have to wait a minimum of a month, is this correct ?

    Tattoo Faded

    So its normal to look a bit faded whilst healing right ? The outline is fine atm, the shading is a bit washed out. It was in the sun for 15mins and im hoping it's ok. I'll wait until healed then get a touch up
  8. Looks like it could be touched up easily as already said
  9. Thanks guys, day before it is then. What about shaving? Can't be a good idea to use shaving foam right before the tattoo,should I just let my artist do the shaving on my arm ?
  10. Had this tattoo last week ( Thursday ) and some of it which has scabbed looks very light and faded. I know I have to wait until it's healed, but is this normal or will this need a touch up ? I moisturise and clean this tattoo just like all my others. Thanks
  11. Hi guys. Got my next tattoo soon, whenever I shave my arms I get tiny shaving rashes which clear up with cold water and some moisturiser. I won't put any moisturiser on the day before my tattoo as my artist told me that certain creams and numbing cream ( which I never use ) can affect the skin whilst he's doing the tattoo. So am I ok to moisturise up until the day of the tattoo or not ? Thanks

    Keep it clean and moisturised, it looks normal
  13. All cleared up now, thanks
  14. Hi guys Had my tattoo earlier on my arm and after it was bleeding a fair bit, now I have a few tiny red spots inside the tattooed area, im hoping this is just from the needle scratching the skin ? No pain or swelling, just some tiny red spots where my hair folicles on my arm are
  15. Just had a medium ( for me ) piece done on my right forearm and wondering when I get the left forearm done should I get the same one, or something different ? Thanks
  16. Ok here is a picture, im really happy with it,, crappy camera
  17. Ok thanks ! My only concern with that is paper towels might leave residue and stick to the tattoo ? Just spoke to my artist he said paper towels or normal towels are fine providing they are clean and dry. Just bought myself some expensive high quality kitchen roll so should do the trick
  18. Ive had about 7 tattoos all of which I pour warm soapy water, gently rub it around and then cold water ( with my hands, not a direct stream ) I then dry it with a towel and have never had any problems doing this but read it's best to use fresh kitchen/toilet paper. Then after, apply the scent free lotion. So my question is, do i have to use fresh kitchen/toilet paper or is a clean towel ok ? I keep one towel specifically for my tattoo cleaning, i dont mix my other towels with them The other thing i could do is, wash it as described above, and then let the air to it so it dries naturally. tanks
  19. Had the tattoo just now, took about one hour. Woke up. Had some toast, then my meds, then some cerial, then a breakfast bar, then sipped on non fizzy energy drink all through the session. No dizziness or anything unusual. Will post pics of tattoo later 🙂
  20. Got my next one tomorrow, will be a bigger piece. Early night, big bowl of cerial, few breakfast bars, and sip on an energy drink before and during. Most importantly deep breathing. Hope it goes ok

    Bad Tattoo

    I think it looks good
  22. Ok next time I will sip on a lucozade and have a few sugary cerial bars along with deep breathing. Hope it helps
  23. Looks good and completely normal ! Give it a few weeks and you'll see how it looks then
  24. Getting another tattoo soon, however on my forearm I have two tiny moles which I want to avoid. My question is, will my artist be able to see them under the stencil he puts on before he starts inking, or will the stencil have to go around it ?
  25. Thanks dude they look awesome, i'm after something more simple though like this... I want it precisely where this one is.
