    Looking for Neo-Traditional in New England

    New Hampshire??? Definitely hobos or their sister shop Congress st tattoo in Portsmouth.
  2. Totally fine. Way over thinking.

    Worried about translation quality

    Why is it rude to ask who the tattooer is?!?
  4. Looks like a little ink loss due to scabbing. Touch up should fix it right up.

    Tattoo help

    Agree with above. Could also be ingrown hairs caused by initial shaving and way too much lotion clogging pores. Keep it dry for a while

    I see zero scabbing. Tattoos can feel raised for a while. They are not fully healed for about 6 weeks and then take months to settle in. I don't see anything of concern

    Hello. Is this healing badly?

    Tattoo looks totally fine and seems to be healing very well. The lightening of the colors is totally normal as the ink is now under a layer of new skin. Looks totally and completely normal.

    Absolutely hate my 1 month old tattoo

    Sorry for your loss. Your tattoo looks great. I think you are over analyzing it. it's very well done. Size and placement is perfect.

    Hello. A radiation therapist with a question

    This is different altogether and the discussion should be allowed in my opinion. OP is NOT looking for a career as a tattooer and is simply trying to better someone's cancer treatment. To the op- this forum will be of little help. It used to be populated by tattooers but most left and you are just reaching collectors here who won't be able to answer your question. I suggest calling or stopping by a legit shop and asking them. They will be much more help than anyone that frequents this board. Best of luck.

    Sleep and a fresh back piece ?

    Tegaderm is awesome and have used it on the last 4 of my tattoos. I did not use it on my back piece. I did however sleep on my back and I don't personally think it made any difference. I can't sleep on my stomach and told the tattooer straight up that I was going to sleep on my back. He didn't think it would be an issue and it never seemed to be. That being said, lay still and try not to move around when sleeping. Easier said than done i guess. But if you don't have any adhesive allergies, I can not recommend tegaderm strongly enough. The stuff is a total game changer.

    Hi and a question on aloe vera

    From what I've read. Aloe isn't great on new tattoos but should be fine with healed ones.

    Perfect!!! Fantastic tattoo

    If you are in philly go visit old city tattoo and I'm sure it can be fixed up to your liking. It doesn't look bad at all. I do see a bit of the old tattoo peeking through in the top pic but it's definitely not as bad as you describe. Easy to be critical of tattoos that you have to look at every day though Martin Lacasse does incredible Japanese work at old city and could probably re-work that peony to make it perfect. Good luck!
  14. I think you are NUTS for not being in love with that tattoo. Super nice. And we are really picky here.

    Snake and Celtic cover up

    That area is prime for blow outs. I have a few in the same area. Mostly it's lines that blow out, not the coloring or shading. Once he shades and colors it in, you'll never see the blowout again. Super nice by the way! Don't sweat the little bits of fuzz. You will never see them again once it's finished
