  1. Thank you! He is getting a Celtic design, not so much traditional.
  2. Any artists you recommend personally from PHGS? I want to show him portfolios to get his opinion on how he feels about it.
  3. Thanks you both, I'll check it out!
  4. I have been searching for information on this for quite some time. I haven't seen much on it within the forums and I am really hoping you guys can help me out. I myself am not a diabetic, I have been involved with quite a few tattoo shops for a better part of my life and I can honestly say that surprisingly I have never been present for anything related to tattooing a diabetic. My issue right now is that my boyfriend is looking at getting his first tattoo. He has the design finalized (which was a work in progress for 2 years) and placement has been chosen. The last step I wanted to take was
  5. Late coming but, welcome fellow Ontarian.
  6. One of my artists will straight up refuse to tattoo anyone who has admitted or he has found out used numbing creams. I have personally seen inks not take properly (I saw a moss green ink turn blue as soon as the tattoo had scanned and the healed that way because of chemicals mixing with he minerals in the ink.) not a good idea.
  7. My question, was it actually a "surface" piercing? Because generally they are defined by barbells through areas of the skin that generally shouldn't be pierced and are almost imminently prone to rejecting (the amount of force and weight the piercing gives to the layers of skin above the barbell are much greater than the skin can generally handle. A regular belly button piercing is a surface piercing, as well as an eyebrow piercing how ever they have a much higher rate to scar/heal to a point in which it will be years before rejection is noticeable.) Or was it an anchor?
  8. I definitely prefer the blue. But that has nothing really to do with the colours. I think I would be more likely to warm up to the darker tattoo once I see a picture that looks healed.
  9. I think I've been fairly lucky, depending on who you are haha. I have only had 2 of my holes that we're not surface piercings that closed up. My belly button is long gone, and my Labret is unfortunately closed over. Oh wait, add septum to that list and as much as I loved it I will not be piercing it for the 4th time. The scar tissue I had to deal with on the 3rd round actually almost made me throw up due to the pain involved and I generally have a high pain tolerance. Everything else that I have interest in having again (tragus, nose, Monroe, lobes) pretty standard stuff now a days for fema
  10. For piercings and tattoo's, different folks different strokes. I've met quite A few highly tattooed individuals who have used the words "disgusting" when listing reasons why they don't want piercings. People dislike piercings just as much as I dislike implants. Myself I have had and extremely long list of piercings, anchors included (not exactly something you can just "take out") they're are as permanent as the strength of my skin.
  11. Other than Hazel Mccallion. Even though she's pretty much out. She stays here.
  12. When it comes to price, where I am shops usually have a shop minimum. This varies from location to location and I have seen many people try to work their way around this when it comes to smaller tattoo's. The way I look at it is simple. Everyone that has very little experience within the tattooing world had often said something along the lines of "Tattooing is so easy! They just draw all day and rake in the dough." When as most know it isn't that simple, being any artist results in putting your heart and soul into developing a practice that for most will always be a constant process of imp
  13. My upper back has been through one sitting, line work completed. Batman on a gargoyle over looking Gotham, is being completed by a small town artist Randy Crossen at Daddy's Electric. Lower back (tramp stamp which I ended up finding out post completion, had half the stencil wiped out and he finished freehand, which made me regret it highly.) I don't want to say who because he has since gotten out of the situation I was unaware of which made highs work shit. My heart on my chest was done by an extremely talented artist, Ryan Miranda who is now working at Forever Young Ink in Toronto. My Koi
  14. Hello, Hellcat here from Ontario, Canada. Been thrown into a tattoo filled world since I was a young lass, 7 years old is when I was introduced to a shop. I would hope that most would realize that I was not personally receiving ink at that age. Years have passed and my body is only marked by 4 tattoo's of yet, 2 which are still incomplete at the moment. Not sure what else to say really.
