  1. I think I was the only girl there getting work yesterday. Seth Wood was finishing the peonies on my back.
  2. I was at Temple today. Your work is amazing!!! And I mean that in the least creepy way possible. [emoji6]
  3. Original poster here. It went well, with no passing out! [emoji6] I ate a big rice chicken bowl for lunch right before the tattoo. The first bathroom break I felt drunk and tried to remind myself that it was my body coping with the pain, and all the advice I had gotten here. I drank LOTS of water during, sat and stood up very slowly, and scarfed a chocolate protein bar when the artist went to get more ink. So thank you! I have to go back to finish the tattoo because we ran out of time, but I am feeling much more confident now! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I love this one from Jen Lee (SF). I adore the little heart on her face. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for all of the suggestions. I'm planning to eat more, both real food and sugar, and drink water throughout. [emoji4] Tomorrow's the big day. Wish me luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It looks pretty dead on to me. The first appears healed, and with a filter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. My first tattoo was on my lower back, this one will be back/shoulder, if it makes a difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. My first "real" tattoo was a six hour event. When it was over I stood up while the artist was trying to take a picture, and after a couple of minutes I felt like I was going to pass out. I sat, drank water, and thankfully avoided fainting. I have an appointment in two days for my next tattoo and I am really worried about passing out! I read that you should make sure to eat, but then I read if you pass out you'll vomit... Help! What can I do to give me the best chance of avoiding passing out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I feel this way about most of Jeff Gogue's, but these feathers slay me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Photos might help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I loved the picture! And as someone without visible tattoos it is helpful to see these types of examples!

    I live in the greater SF bay area. I could fairly easily travel to anywhere in Northern California. While I am seeing a lot of great work, I am having trouble finding someone doing great work of the style I think I want. I really like the etching/woodcut/linework approach to botanicals. Suggestions?
  13. I love your peony! May I ask who did it?
  14. Thanks! I haven't yet had a tattoo large enough to require careful clothing consideration yet.
  15. How long is clothing typically a concern over new tattoos?
