  1. For your information, I change the plastic wrap after washing thoroughly, twice a day, with a 2-3 hour air our period to led the surrounding skin get a break from the Tattoo healing protocol.
  2. First of all this topic of discussion is the Tattoo Style decision tree. I presented this Tattoo Style Decision Tree, for discussion no different then showing a picture of a Filip Lue Full body suit tattoo to talk about and discuss. Constructive criticism was expected, not this bullshit. I personally think it is a great idea to help newbees and newcomers and even the experienced to understand the difference in tattoo styles. I know it really helped me. Not everyone wants Oldschool Illustration designs, this is 2014 and there is a lot on the menu, for what is available as tattoo art, so th
  3. The following rating system will help you become familiar with common art terms as they relate to tattoos and hopefully better communicate your ideas... The Tattoo Rating System: This Tattoo rating system, rates the common elements, which are present in both color or black and white tattoo designs, regardless of style. The design elements principles, we are examining, describe fundamental ideas and aspects about the practice of good visual design. The Principles of design can be thought of as what artists do to the elements of design. How an Artist applies the Principles of design determines
  4. These Tattoo Style Decision Trees, are to help decide in what Tattoo Style to proceed in for a new tattoo, this was posted in a different Tattoo forum, thought I would bridge the gap and see what you all thought about this concept. here are links to the main tree and the individual four Genres which further explain and break down the styles individually: Tattoo Style Decision Trees - Five in Total -and related influence diagram
  5. Lazering off the tattoo is always dangerous because it releases tons of harmful chemical compounds into your body. What is generally safe ( Tattoo Pigment) to have in the dermis of your skin, is another matter pumping through your lymphatic system, as your body tries to get rid of it, after lazer treatment. A good artist will be able to work with what you have to make something new and wonderful, even if it takes a couple of applications. Getting the tattoo right the first time is the most efficient way to get tattooed, but being willing to allow an artist to do what is necessary to transfo
  6. I have tried many ways to heal a tattoo and have had the best results healing Tattoos with Plastic Wrap (I discontinue plastic wrap once tattooed area starts to peel furiously, ie, surface of skin closed completely approximately 4-7 days) ...and here is some medical backing to support this procedure... The concept of keeping the nonsurgically closed wounds moist and protected is not new. There is documentation indicating that the ancient Mesopotamians dressed their wounds with fine linen soaked in oil. The Greeks applied animal fat and wrapped the wounds, and the Roman applied ashes, oil and
  7. Stockings is a better and more appropriate terms than Leg Sleeves.. what about rocking Tat-Slacks, lol. or Ink Tousers, or Art Britches
  8. I was waiting at the bus stop and had this fella saw "wow your Tattoos are great they must be outside tattoos". Having never heard the term "Outside Tattoos" before, I naively asked, what does that mean... It was explained to me, to me that when a guy gets tattooed inside Jail or Prison, those are called "Inside Tattoos" lol. So the quality of Tattoo Art on my body bespoke professional enough to merit the term Outside Tattoos. A compliment that I will accept. Anyway, the general quality of Tattoos around Nova Scotia, where I live is so low that it is hard to distinguish between Inside and
  9. I have a collection of Tattoos from a variety of artists over the years. One thing that I have realized if some artists are visually stuck in a particular style, so it takes them some hard work to expand into other styles. If a guy does Oldschool all day long, somehow his Portraits, Biomechanical and Realism all look Oldschool. So be warned. If you found someone who is trying to expand their Tattoo visual range, then they should probably give you special experimental rate until they prove themselves. It could work out good for both of you and if they don't nail it, well you both went in with
  10. I personally hate the term "Leg Sleeve". At this point there must be a more creative way to discuss full coverage from the ankle to the Thigh without saying leg sleeve. My shirt has sleeves, so of course full coverage arms could be called sleeves, since they look the same, but Leg sleeve seems to be missing something. I would not say look at my leg arms... it just doesn't work. Anyone know a better way of describing this area of the body? Also I know bodybuilders who call a great jacked up pair of legs wheels, but that is a leap for me. I do not get it. Great Wheels man! lol.
  11. Opinions are like arseholes, everyone's got one and sometime no one wants to hear it, and sometimes thing come out harsher than intended. For the most part this forum seems to keep things civil and inclusive which is one of the reasons I signed up. We all start from a place of ignorance, and work our way out, (as our interest grows). It is good to state the obvious so it is brought forward to our consciousness, thank you for that, and hope everything works out well for you. .
  12. Thank you for your insight, I agree with many of your observations, as well as the unique level of chaos that enshrines the Tattoo Scene the various players involved and their motivation for acquiring Tattoos.
  13. Thank you for the compliment... I think...lol.
  14. I am passionate about the Topic of Tattoo and am seeking others of like mind, this forum seems like the right place for the subject. Again the "me" does not matter so much as the subject of discussion.
  15. Thank you for that. The saying "Good Tattoos ain't cheap and cheap tattoos ain't good" I see posted everywhere is a logical fallacy, because some times Great Tattooers give an exceptional rate for projects that are close to their hearts, and on the other hand, real terrible Tattooers charge a premium to the unaware or inexperienced. I hear and agree to a certain point about the cheap tattoo seekers, but to me that is not the major cause of the plague of bad tattoos I see everywhere. - - - Updated - - - Here in Nova Scotia, we have, not only ebay, but also Kijiji adds selling tattoo equip
