  1. Im using H2Ocean this time around and it's freaking amazing. I'm on day 6 and little to no scabbing. It was suggested to a friend a couple of years back and I figured being in a dryer climate I need a little extra to seal all the moisture in. Last tatt I was getting up at 3am because I woke up feeling like my surrounding skin was going to tear open but My feet are going great. I was expecting my feet to be way scabbier as I'm always running around after my kids.

  2. This guy was on one of those Americas worst tattoo shows a while back. Wanted a leg tattoo coverup as it ''was affecting him becoming an actor''... Yes,the guy with the shitty face tat is held back over some crap on his leg.. The mind boggles..

    HOLY CRAP! That ep was just on in Australia. I was utterly gob smacked he didn't get the advert of the losing political candidate covered!

    Todays session. 3 hours on feet was a stretch but got through it.

    Tattoo was done by Chris at Wildcard Tattoo, Kalgoorlie Western Australia

    I am super stoked with the results. I got permission from the artist at Jubly-Umph to use the designs. It's an Australian based artist who sells prints as well as pendants, handbags, wallets, earrings etc. The artist is even international now so keep an eye out.

    Not sure if my link will work but it's in my gallery

  4. I think it's just different for every one. I have a good deal of work done in painful areas: ribs, collar bone, inner bicep. And I've done long sessions of 4.5+ hours. My 30 minute foot tattoo has still been the most painful and I doubt I will get my other foot tattooed for this reason. I have a high pain tolerance, too. So riddle me a pussy :)

    ^I also don't think I need to justify myself with my experience, but like I said: every one responds to pain and certain areas of the body differently.

    Nah, I don't think you're a pussy and as you said everyone responds to pain differently. I'm going on the basis that people who have foot tattoos have claimed the inner arm is excruciating and I was expecting so much worse.

    I am getting my feet done to fit around some shoes I regularly wear. It'll be toward the higher section of my foot and central. I've also worked out that it's pretty well clear of any shoe contact during the healing process with a variety of shoes I wear in this weather. It's getting to the warmer spring weather so I should be right. The reason I planned them together is because I wanted to take as little time off running as possible and not screw up the healing process with sweaty running shoes. Plus the designs I am getting really belong together.

    For what it's worth, I know some people who've reported excruciating pain on their feet and said the whole story about having to wear slippers instead of shoes for a few days, yada yada yada. I, on the other hand, was able to loosen the laces on my vans for a few days and that was that. I didn't think they hurt worse than my shins, which was barely at all. So, hopefully yours go more along those lines.

    Pretty sure this is the type of feet tattoo person i'm going to be. I have prepped for a whole week with minimal time on my feet at least (saying that as a mum of 2 is optimistic)

    I think it's more about the frame of mind you go in with.

  5. Those cat prints would make GREAT foot tattoos! FWIW, I thought the feet were bad, but bearable. I got both mine done the same day, and they weren't nearly as bad as the ribs or ass or lower back. If you wear a size 15 shoe, you might have a worse go of it.

    This gives me hope. So many are saying to me "it hurts SOOOO bad" but they're the type of people that would whine about breaking a nail. I'm getting both of mine done the same day too and probably about 4 hours total for both feet. Oh and the other people that claims it hurts so bad don't have their feet tattooed (or very unimpressive tiny tattoos).

  6. Ok guys I am back... I went to suffer city yesterday (falkners new place) had some girl laser the lion on my right arm (almost as big as a half sleeve) today it is swollen and the browns have gotten darker so I am a little worried. I will post pics ASAP sorry for the wait and if anyone can chime in to put me at ease please do. Also I work in a warehouse.. what can I do to avoid infection?

    My friend's went darker than it did when it had just been done before it faded.

  7. If you think that $100 an hour for a good artist is too much, think how much it will cost to cover up a cheap artist's work!

    Seriously though, this will be on you for the rest of your life; if your primary concern is cost, then you should re-think getting a tattoo.

    Yes, this is exactly right. The guy that does my tattooing said that he gets frustrated with cover ups because there are so many backyard operators in town. He was saying that majority of the time it'd cost less to initially do the cover up as a design because of the time involved to draw it up and plan for optimal cover. add that to the issues with healing over previously tattooed badly and as a result scarred tissue...

    Also if you want full sleeves then get a bit at a time. I know of someone that's estimating her sleeves will take 5 years to finish due to cost and she's doing one area at a time

  8. I'm wondering what everyone's opinion on a more lasting tone of red in a tattoo is. It's going to be a large quantity of the colour over a larger area. I'm adamant about sun protection/staying out of the sun during strongest parts of the day/covering skin with clothing etc.

    I was leaning towards a slightly darker red colour. Anything that will stay a definite red and not go hot pink.

    any input thrown my way is welcome :)


  9. It's a mixture of Krav Maga, Haganah, Modern Jiu Jitsu and Street Jiu Jitsu.

    Ideal self defence for Police Officers and Military including submissions, ground control, defence for knife, gun, sticks, kubotan, ...

    Sounds full-on!

  10. I'm guessing it's just where they layered one ink over another. Just a guess (educated one). Pretty sure it'll heal. I've been doing a heap of research because getting both of my feet done within 24 hours in a month. apparently they're notorious for drying out.

    Yes, I'm crazy getting both feet in 24 hours but running is my cigarette substitute so can't take more time than needed off.

  11. My black piece had all the scabbing come off early and it's not looking too bad. It is only a couple of weeks old though so still healing. when all the finer skin scabby leftover go away it'll look ace. I was stressing majorly too. I do have to have a couple of places that need touching up but my son accidentally scratched me. He managed to rake his nails through the whole lot

    Don't stress too much. I've heard from a few people that feet seem to take a little longer to heal

    sorry, forgot to ask if it's where white ink is that's mega scabby? My sister had heaps of issues with her white getting super thick scabs but it healed just fine... just took longer
