    My first tattoo - Horiyoshi 3 inspired samurai half sleeve

    Apologies for the big ass photos everyone, I should've just done the album link. Just regarding the oni I was thinking green and the artist is thinking red to make it look more angry. The only thing I'm confused about, I reckon green would look sick though. Artist is Garth at Light house tattoo

    My first tattoo - Horiyoshi 3 inspired samurai half sleeve

    Hey folks, Here's an update on the piece I've had 2 sessions since my first post and am due for one more. What do you guys think about colouring the rest of the tatt? I've got a colour in mind for the oni. - - - Updated - - - My only gripe with it is the two flowers right down the bottom seems out of place.

    My first tattoo - Horiyoshi 3 inspired samurai half sleeve

    Just looking for feedback on the piece and if folks would add anything, I was specifically thinking about putting a kanji box on it, and thinking of what would compliment it with a full sleeve Yeah is this cool? I thought that was just the introduce yourself forum? If not I can delete?

  6. Hey folks, just looking for a bit of feedback / advice on my first half-sleeve tattoo. It's only the outline so far, going in to have a 3 hr session tomorrow for colour and shading. Any advice on what you'd add or do differently? I was thinking of adding some japanese kanji in a box like you see on traditional works and what-not though not sure. Album is here. Thanks.

    Heavy training or exercising

    Pretty sure I went to yoga a couple days after and was fine, and was able to do some kettlebell routines a day or two after, just be smart about it. Go for long walks or a jog or something, don't make the mistake on doing nothing though or going gangbusters doin crossfit the next day or something.
  8. Sound advice, your liver will process the alcohol and turn it into cardiovascular gold! Haha at least it make you forget why you wanted to go swimming in the first place! Speaking of which where's a good old coopers when you need one :)

    Hotel healing

    Is the idea to saran wrap for a few days with thin layer of correct cream? I was told leave the wrap on till the night then shower pat dry and put thin layer of cream and let it to start to dry? confused
  10. is this the same as Afterink? it was recommended by my tattooist though broke me opted to buy cheap shit at the chemist. ( wrong idea )

    Exercising while healing (running, lifting, basketball, etc)

    It's an issue, I probably put on 5kgs after my first session, and have only gotten back into training with second session tomorrow :( alas the sacrifices we make lol.

    Most painful spot to get tattooed

    Mostly anecdotal for me, with my half sleeve I found the most sensitive bits were around the arm-pit with the big needle, stung like a son of a bitch. My tattooist reckons on the palm of the hand is the worst.
