    @Gingerninja that is awesome! Great way to top off a busy year for you, and give good vibes while you beat the beast next year! Sent from my Le Pan TC802A using Tapatalk
  3. Post shitty things you have been doing recently

    Well, @Gingerninja, what's the word? Good, I hope! I have a friend that had a tumor wrapped around her auditory nerves and partially on the optic nerve on that side. She had lost all hearing in that ear already. She had surgery @ Vanderbilt, had to go in through her face and eye socket. Low prognosis for survival, success at removing all of the tumor, eyesight on that side, facial appearance, personality, etc. When they got in the tumor had turned to a jelly that they were able to suction out. This was a couple decades ago. I just saw her last year (on my way to a tattoo convention!) and she has about 20% hearing loss in that ear, no scars or appearance change, good sight in both eyes, and a personality just as warped as when I first met her in Sunday School in 1979. I know this is not the most popular statement for this forum, but she had many faithful praying for her. I'll keep you in my prayers.
  4. Tattoo Donts..... that you did

    A line (what landlubbers would call a rope) that was supposed to look realistic that he made look like a 3 year-old's cartoon. On the top of my right forearm. His "correction" just made it worse. I'm finally happy with it, after four laser treatments and two correction sessions with a great artist that cared about the satisfaction of the customer. Sent from my Le Pan TC802A using Tapatalk

  6. Full Back Piece Experience Thread

    I've not had any back work, but my left shoulder is pretty solid color, and I'm a side sleeper. Rolled onto that side often even though I tried not. Even woke up 1st morning on that side. In my 60's and although cuts seem to heal slower, the tattoos seem to heal fast for me. I do think overall health and the care by the artist mean most. BTW, I wore a long-sleeved cotton tee for the first four or five nights. First night there was a little seeping and the shirt stuck. DON'T PULL IT OFF! Just stepped in the shower and soaked it off. Gave no problems at all. Sent from my Le Pan TC802A using Tapatalk

  8. Some more advice on a new and first tattoo

    Email the change request, and maybe call their shop to make sure it was read (don't expect to talk to more than a receptionist if they are busy). It's normal to not see the design until you show up - but burn this into you brain - DON'T LET THEM PROCEED UNTIL YOU ARE SATISFIED! I made the mistake of accepting a wonky design that the artist said he'd correct when he inked it. He didn't and it took years and $$$$ la$er work to get it to where another artist could make it right.
  9. Traveling to get a large tattoo a logistic nightmare?

    @purplelace - I once was VERY prone to car sick, sea sick, air sick, etc. I found three preventatives. One may work for you: Dramamine - Modine and Bonnine are just sugar pills to me. Although it might make you drowsy, Dramamine just works for me, and is OTC here. Martinis - not too many, but a double can really do wonders. Made our honeymoon cruise enjoyable for my wife. Saltines - old sailor's cure, and it works! Our captain even brought a pack back into the engine room once when we had a long, rough surface transit (nuc submarine). We told him we were not allowed to eat in the engineering spaces, then broke out our boxes of saltines when he went forward.
  10. Thanks for the work but.... I think it killed Tapatalk.

    Sorry for your loss, Dan. Hope you and his family shared tons of great memories with him to see you through the rough times.
  14. Carrying it on the other side will not only reduce tattoo aggravation, it will reduce repeated stress on your spine. Once I switched to the left hand for carrying my briefcase or backpack, my back pains greatly reduced. Sent from my Le Pan TC802A using Tapatalk
