  1. I haven't read all these pages, so I apologize if this is redundant, but when my tattoo started to itch this time I took a benadryl before bed for a few days. I barely noticed it this time.
  2. I've used it for each of the three sessions I had this year. My artist used it and it smelled so good I bought some. Ya it cost $20 I think, but it goes a long way. I used it the first week and then quit but only because my husband always put to much on. I couldn't reach my back to do it myself. I got tired of wearing shirts that I didn't mind getting greasy.
  3. Bummer, picture is a bit blurry. I'll make sure I get a better one of the finished product.
  4. YES! This drives me crazy! One here or there, meh, but sometimes I have a person go crazy posting one right after another. But hey, first world problem, right? ;)
  5. All this text drives me crazy!. I like to look at tattoo's on pinterest but I have found myself having to narrow my search to back piece or sleeve to avoid pages and pages of text tattoo's. How boring! Why do people do that? Isn't this supposed to be art? Am I going to start walking through art galleries and see framed text? Wait, people are doing this in their homes now...
  6. Really there is no way around this. I was a phlebotomist for 11 years before becoming a nurse and I was a good one. I rarely had to call upon someone else to get something I missed, but you quite often have to "fish around" for veins. It's only in a fantasy world that every poke would go directly into it's target.
  7. So I'm thinking that I may not be able to go back to using benzoyl peroxide for skin care of my back. It is known to bleach fabric so I am concerned that over time it will accelerate the aging of my tattoo. I read online that I shouldn't worry about it because tattoos are under a few layers of skin but, many substances can penetrate the skin. We give some medications that way. Just curious if anyone knows anything about the effects of benzoyl peroxide on tattoos. I know not to use it during the healing process, but am I right in thinking it's better not to use it ever?
  8. I have never had any difficulty getting into veins because of tattoos because I go by the feel of the vein, not the sight of one.
  9. I'm confident you won't be able to see it when he is done. I can't believe how faded it looks next to the new black!
  10. So which page of this thread gives advice on itching? I swear, I'd rather this thing hurt than itched. It's driving me crazy.
  11. Took me longer than I thought to get in for my first session but here it is. Still need to add color. I wish I could stare at it but it is on my back so that is not comfortable to do. :(

    What on earth was the rational for dermal abrasion?
