  1. sounds like it's healing just fine.
  2. tattoo remorse is very common, it will pass. I have a large number of tattoos and still get it every time ! LOL
  3. @oboogie was heading in the right direction, I know a bit about that,it looks like this to me .... "The Meaning of the Hawaiian Bone Fish Hook. The deep connection and reverence the Hawaiians had for the ocean created the meaning behind the Hawaiian fish hook necklace. It represents strength, prosperity, abundance, and a great respect for the sea." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hei_matau https://www.google.com/search?q=hawaiian+bone+hook+design+meaning&rlz=1C1CHHJ_enUS531US531&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj2yvTL657WAhXFjlQKHQ2fCloQsAQIcg "Makau – Fish Hook Pendant Hawaiians have a deep connection and understanding of the ocean. The Makau is a fishhook pendant, which was used in ancient times to find food. During the early eras, locals would create fishhooks out of various materials – bones, wood, coral and stone. Today, the fish hook necklaces sold represent everything good: strength, prosperity and good luck. Pendants are often made in bone, wood or jade materials." https://www.olukai.com/journal/2014/11/03/the-meaning-behind-hawaiian-symbols/
  4. my whole body is a mix, I think your idea is just fine.
  5. the bike stuff was the most fun. I got 3rd place for my thigh anchor tattoo. https://www.facebook.com/tattoodan/videos/10207617883804442/
  6. go big or go home.
  7. ya,they do burnout contests, and drag races, bite the weeny contest(girl on back of bike has to bite a hotdog on a hotdog hanging on a string) LOL slow ride contest. etc,etc
  8. not sure, maybe just personal preference .I didn't like the buildup of liquid, I prefer the healing to remain dry under the film. :) after many times using it, I have found what works best for me.
  9. ya,IMO leave the outer clear plastic on until it's all applied,because you need to smooth out the film as you apply across the tattoo to get the air bubbles out,and if you peel off the outer skin first it is too hard to do that, and trust me the forearm is an easy place to apply it,I have used that stuff all over my body including on my hands/knees,etc,etc.those are tough to apply,but it works there too. also I wait for about 20 hours before applying the saniderm to let all the plasma/liquid come out ,it won't build up under the film if you wait longer. so take it off,clean it with anti-microbial soap,dry it real good with clean paper towels, and re-apply a new piece of saniderm.
  10. all good educated replies, all I can add is to stop looking at it with a microscope.
  11. cool tattoo and bike show I have gone to a few times,anyone else local to Nor Cal ? it's a pretty fun day,I'll be going,if anyone else wants to go,pm me here with a phone #. http://www.renegadeevents.com/renegade-rendezvous/RR2017.html
  12. note to self,"must learn new languages".
  13. ya,saniderm has a international currency converter and ships worldwide.
  14. get some for next time ! Saniderm has a 10.2" x 2yd roll in a sealed bag (I keep it once opened in a ziplock bag for freshness) for $16.95 + Priority Mail® 2 - 3 days USPS: $6.56. http://saniderm.com/shop/ this is what I always buy,I keep some onhand for my next tattoos.
