  1. David, Thanks for your thoughts. It was done at A-1 tattoo in west St. Paul. The same artist did my other tattoo and I love it and get compliments daily. I will be going to 7th street tattoo in St. Paul to look at getting my sleeve done by Dan Lowell. I will probably go back get it fixed and then be done with the artist that did this tattoo. It's bothersome since I paid good money for this, just to watch the color come out and lines be broken and deal with major scabbing. thornton8000
  2. David Flores: it is a confirmed infection from doc and tattoo artist. He addressed that yes it's infected, yes lines broke during your healing and yes we need to touch that up and fix color that came out in the healing and scabbing process. Everyone that has seen the tattoo said that he rushed it compared to my other tattoo, and that lines are not consistent on one arm its thin than goes thicker granted part of that will be covered up after the rest of the tattoo is done, but the fact is it's not 100% how I wanted it. I'll add photos here of how it looks in my next post. thornton8000 - - - Updated - - - Here are photos of the inconsistent lines on the arm, chest, and crotch area, that are scabbing and broken lines. And scabbed over hat on head Let me know your thoughts. Thanks, thornton8000

  6. irezumi: Dan's going to call me this Thursday. Saw spencer at that shop today and showed him my latest tattoo and he even agreed that I was over worked and that I have an infection there now and I'll be checking them out for my next tattoos and from there deciding on who will be doing the rest of my tattoos from now. Thanks for the suggestion, if you know give me your name and I'll let him know you sent me! thornton8000
  7. Chrislj54: I've heard they are good, from people that my wife knows that have been there they have had a bad experience, I'll be going to dan Lowell at 7th street tattoo, that was recommended from a member on here.
  8. color ink may be my issue, B&G I had no issues with whatsoever. The artist I use has a great reputation with everyone I asked before going to him, I think he made mistakes since (the more I look at it), that he was rushing the tattoo. (Tattoo appointment was at 2:30pm he didn't get started till 5:30pm, he was finished at roughly 7:15pm) It seemed like he was having issues getting color to stay and look good. I don't know I'm just frustrated with the last experience and with how this tattoo is healing. Makes me just question if I should go back there.
  9. deadsp0t: I'm not sure, the last one he did was no issues, this one the day after it was done it was bubbling, and hard eavy scabbing and it wasn't the same as the 1st one he did for me. Not sure which way I'm leaning, other than I feel he rushed the last tattoo.
  10. To a tattoo artist after your new tattoo getting infected? This is my newest dilemma, find a new one or stick with the one that has done all my ink. (Granted it's only 2 tattoos) The first one he rocked it, the newest one looks like a rush job, found out today it's infected, lines are not consistent. Reason I ask is I plan on getting a sleeve done on the other arm, and a handful of smaller tattoos in the future. You guys here gave me a guys name I'm checking out tomorrow and will be talking "shop". Since the style I want is Japanese for the sleeve, I want to make sure it looks great. Thoughts ideas throw them at me, so I can make the best decision I can. Thanks, thornton8000
  11. Scab looking ones yes, went to the doc since a broken line on the pin up's breast looked like the skin was cracked, found out it's infected. Taking oral meds for 10 days, hope it clears up and when healed can get it fixed to make it look good. thornton8000
  12. Hello everyone, So my son was looking at my pin up girl tattoo, he goes dad your bleeding! I've been keeping lotion and a&d on it and it cracked and noticed a few other places that did the same. Is this something that will require a touch up or will all be good and well when it's done healing? Thanks for info from everyone who's had more tattoos than I have. My B&G dream catcher never did any of the things my color pin up is doing so not sure why this is happening. Thanks everyone! thornton8000
  13. I've been using AD for covering it with this and my other tattoo, funny thing is After washing letting it dry and applying a very fine layer of tattoo goo salve the bubbling went down and is starting to look better, but I agree with another poster that too much ointment, with the AD i'd try to keep it thin but wasn't always successful but with goo its easier. I'll keep y'all updated with how the go works for me going forward. thronton8000
  14. It was clean the day of and after and today this is what it looks like.
  15. This is what I mean by bubbling. Let me know what you think.
