    Rob I got a reaction from bongsau in 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.

    You WILL bruise.  But that goes away and it's totally worth it
    pics attached were from my latest from Chad on the inside of the bicep. Taken the day after and under tegaderm.

    Made another Oslo trip last week to start a cover up on my lower stomach. While i was there i picked up a namakubi from Nicholas at Blue Arms.

    The cover up is ongoing and i don't mind admitting i'm very apprehensive about the next session! This was not a fun tattoo to get although Marius did his best to keep my spirits up and a visit from LST's own Mr @Iwar definitely kept me distracted from the significant pain!

    Here's a little party shark I got from Scott Sylvia recently. I meant to post healed pictures but it's a difficult area of my arm to photograph. Thanks for looking! starting the left sleeve next.

    Sarah did a first pass at correcting the faked line on my forearm that another artist did and I hated. After 3 laser sessions (one a two-pass session), it was ready. She did the lining and some grey shading. Looks thousands of times better. She will add color in early March. This is going to settle nicely, I think - and I'm already real happy with it.

    Got my somewhat spontaneous dragon tattoo today. Wes Garvick did it and I'm so stoked on it. His shop is literally the only one in town I'd ever go to, if you ever find yourself in York, PA. 
    And what's that you guys always say about everyone needs a panther and dragon? Now I have both and they're friends.

    Rob I got a reaction from Tuchaka in 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.

    Rob I reacted to Hogrider in Question about pricing and choosing a shop   
    Yes, it would be totally inappropriate. "Hi, I love your work, but you are too expensive. Can you recommend someone just as good, but cheaper so I can spend my money with your competition?"
    You'll be unhappy about the price once. You'll be unhappy about a crappy tattoo forever.

    This was done last night by Gina at Studio 69 tattoo... on my ribs. Came close to tapping out. The mark on the upper left is a drain from my heart surgery.

    Snake has now become a raven. 7hrs today - the collarbone stuff was a stinger for sure. Talking of which, done by Guerra Stinger of Extreme Tattoo, Inverness. Another couple of hours to come adding some colourful flowers and more leaves. I like it! Now need shower and bed...

    Can't figure out how to get the pic off of instagram. It's a tiger, part of my ongoing quest for full coverage.
    EDIT - figured it out!

    Yay! I knew you'd know. We were watching an Aardman Animation documentary the other night, and it just occurred to me it would be hilarious. I called my artist, and he was also familiar with W+G, too, and he thought it was funny. He didn't charge me much at all and said, "Happy birthday!" (It was my birthday last weekend.)
