  1. https://saniderm.com/product/personal-size-10-2-in-x-2-yd-roll/ I use this stuff all the time. makes healing a breeze, they ship fast.
  2. driving and working should be no problem. keep it clean, you will be fine.
  3. swelling is totally normal, keep it elevated,ice it up a little,treat it like an injury,
  4. if you are "quite happy with it",then the artist is doing a good job. it looks fine,
  5. yes,any good artist will notice them and not tattoo over them. if they don't notice them then you went to the wrong artist

    keep in mind laser tattoo removal is not that, it's really just tattoo lightening , and if you want to be a tattoo artist, please don't just dabble with a Chinese eBay kit, go get some art education and then maybe if you are lucky enough to get an apprenticeship and proper training at a reputable shop, then in 3 or 4 years you might get a job as a tattooer.
  11. IMO on fully healed tattoos especially with protective gloves and clothing, the heat shouldn't have any effect on your tattoos, or skin, other than being a little irritating from the heat. and as far as aging !?!?! you and your body are going to heal in their own way. the sun,smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol have more effect on aging and looking aged than baking or heat or anything to do with tattoos.
  12. yep ! you need to pre-hydrate and the best thing to do when feeling light headed is to eat some candy, of course eating a good meal before getting tattooed is a no brainer. that little tattoo should be an easy one,
  13. if you can't take a week off now,then IMO yes,wait
  14. if it was me I would just leave it alone. trying to change it will just F*** it up.

    Hey there

    all you can do now is wait and let it heal, keep washing it like you did, use a light coat of Aveeno daily. stressing on it won't do any good.

    Hey there

    where is that on your body ? and have you scrubbed it with soap and water with the palm of your hand ? I have never seen "staining", that looks like blowout, I am 59 and still getting tattoos and I have never been stained by ink,not that didn't wash off right away.
  17. if you are not 100% comfortable with a neck tattoo then don't get it,simple enough. yes,hand & neck tattoos are a serious step,I have both and I am good with it,but you need to be sure,or don't do it yet.
  18. stop by here, I went last year and had a blast and got a nice little tattoo.
  19. Hi,yes your skin will tan through the tattoo,so it looks faded,try a good sunblock like SPF50,or a quality long sleeve UV protective shirt
  20. it will NEVER again look like it did the day you got it, and keep a light coat of a lotion like Aveeno on it daily, and hey ! if you need a touchup in a couple months, no biggy. keep it out of the sun or use a good sunblock if you are in the sun for a while.
  21. I'm sure it will,I have many styles mixed together all over me.
  22. from what I can see it looks like a great start to a sleeve. looks good
