    this example (in a real tattoo) would not wear well,it will be a muddled  black blob in 2 years,
    "bold will hold"
    like this on my thigh and on the back of my neck,
    bold well saturated colors and blacks,and solid well defined  bold outlines, that's what has longevity.

    I'm actually born and raised in Cincinnati! My dad is from near Pittsburgh, and I still have a lot of family there but was raised as a fan from the beginning. 
    My artist was a Bengals fan and grumbled throughout but did a great job!

    Well, it's been almost a year so now I'm excited to have booked my next piece while on vacation in Austin a month from now! I'm in with Jon Sproul at Moon Tattoo and he's going to be filling in the last remaining spot on my leg, so (once reasonably healed) I'll be posting in both the Latest Tattoo Lowdown and the Squidpants threads.

    looks like normal healing to me,
    the milkiness will go away,
    it's basically an injury to your skin and so it needs time to heal,
    a week is very fresh,it will look better in 4 to 6 weeks,
    tattoos take months to heal 100%,
    keep a very light coat of Aveeno on a couple times a day.

    wait,what the hell ? LOL other than road rash form a motorcycle accident, I have to disagree 100% with this "friction can affect a tattoo overtime",
    the sun and age are the only things that affect a tattoo after it's healed,
    "friction" on a tattoo will NEVER affect a tattoo IMO,
    palm and bottom of feet tattoos fallout because of the type of skin it is,NOT from friction,

    BTW, Zanctuary is a site of temporary tattoos. Most cost $14.00. My advice - research real tattoos and plan to spend a lot more than $14.00.

    There are many symbols that originally meant one thing and have been bastardized over the years. The iron cross was a German military medal going back to Napoleon's time, may even have a history before that. The Nazis, white supremacists and outlaw bikers have ruined since then. I remember going to a car show with my older brother and sister in law when I was probably 6 or 7. I bought a small iron cross and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

    Indeed, @Dan. That symbol was used a lot in the car culture back then, too.

    I have this,I call it a surfer cross,it is representative of the surfing/skateboarding lifestyle I grew up in during the 60's in southern California.
    if it's offensive to someone then oh well,as @Hogrider  said,there will always be somebody offended by something.
    nobody has ever commented on it in a negative way,
    actually a few people have thought it was a religious cross.

    New member here at last sparrow, but long time lurker. Im a Bay Area native and just recently moved to Beaverton, Oregon. I’ve been collecting for 11 years now and finally decided to come aboard and join the community.
    I’ve been researching some shops and artists out here but I haven’t taken the plunge in getting tattooed yet unfortunately. I love traditional and neo traditional and I have my legs and back to finish. Does anyone have any recommendations for artists and shops ? 
     
    Thanks guys! 🤘

    There is nothing so innocuous that it can't be deemed offensive by someone.

    tattoo remorse is very common,what you are feeling ,we have all felt,I am heavily tattooed and I still get that,
    it will pass,you will love your tattoo,and before you know it you will be planning your next tattoo,
    but for now,let it heal,embrace it,
    keep it out of the sun
    use some aveeno lotion on it daily,
    and show it off with pride.
