so this is only my second tattoo and the first one i've had with anything other than just black, but i'm a little concerned.

guy told me the black that had gotten onto some of the red would flake out as it healed, but it's been over two weeks now and the black is still there. just as much as it was when he finished. it's still at that itchy/peely/wrinkly stage so maybe it's fine, but it's worrying me a little. not gonna be happy if it turns out he didn't completely clean the black ink out of the needle and i'm stuck with shitty black lines on the red parts of my tattoo.

go into the shop and show him - artists usually will give you free touch-ups even if they didn't mess anything up just to freshen up the look, and if he ****ed it up then he definitely needs to offer you a touch-up. try not to be timid about it - a good artist will care about their reputation

I'm pretty excited. In the next few months I'm gonna be getting a lighthouse tattoo done on my shoulder to cover up some old self harm marks. Then on my left forearm I'm getting a watercolor bird done

Yeah I'm pretty pumped about that one for sure. I already have a calvin and hobbes one covering some marks up on the same arm and I love it to death. I'm gonna have a cracked lighthouse with an octopus tentacle attacking it as well as having some vultures circling around and at the base I'm gonna have 3 black roses.

Tatting scars is definitely a great way to touch up old scars. Seen a few that work really well.

I know a lot of pornstars that would definitely do well with having tattoos around the cuts of incisions, whether to accent or hide.

thanks, yo.

i'm not even sure what stage of healing i'm at right now, actually. it's been so long since my first one that i forgot what it was like. right now it's kind of rough and wrinkled so i guess it may not have actually peeled.

the guy who did it was really cool, though, so i think he'd help me out if something did get messed up. way nicer than the dick who did the first one. maybe i'll pay him a visit next weekend just to make sure. wanna run a few design ideas by him, too. (as long as he didn't mess up i'd definitely go back to him)

cool beans on the lighthouse tat idea.

i've been mulling over something like this one for a local band i love that kind of fell off the map. i think one of them went to school or something so they've been on an unannounced hiatus i guess, but they were one of the tightest bands i'd ever seen live and the first band i was ever able to see at a show sober and go home feeling great.

as a card-carrying member of the tattooed lighthouse club, i approve of this design. it's similar to mine.

not sure if you're into color or not but nothing looks cooler than a lighthouse in a storm so long as your artist is good enough with their shading.

i need more color on me. second tat has just a little tiny bit of red blood spatter things at the end of a solid black dagger.

i just don't know what to get, though.

oh, there's a question for you guys/gals: how do i go about getting an artist to do a commission or whatever to draw me something up? is it as simple as that? just ask? describe what i want? maybe show them a rough sketch?

i probably won't be able to afford anything too fancy immediately, but i'd like to start planning it out. maybe find the right artist for it, too.

that lighthouse or this pulp illustration for a short story are probably what i'm getting done next.

i'll try and scan the pulp thing later, but this is the style of some of the guy's work:

Lee Brown Coye. did a lot of stuff for Weird Tales and Lovecraft stuff.

there's another really cool piece in this art book i got, but i'd like to read the story it's from before i get it permanently put on my arm.

some of Mike Diana's work is something else i've thought about, too. probably one of the ones with less penises.

Got my first tattoo a few weeks ago, this was taken right after it was finished. One two and a half hour session.

totally forgot to respond to this, sorry. Anyway it varies from artist to artist but the way my artist works is she charges 100 per hour but the first hour she charges you, 40 goes to the drawing or sketch of the piece. If you like the sketch she draws up, she goes again and starts tatting it on you for 60 bucks for the first hour and 100 each other after. If you don't like the sketch, she keeps the 40 bucks anyway as her commission.

I want this but I am wondering if anyone would be willing to do a quick little doodle to show me a cleaner version, say for example with a black outline and with a polished white background finish?

just saw this 4 months later.

thanks for the info. still need to go back and get my last one looked at. guy definitely got some black ink where it shouldn't be in the red on my latest one. not sure if/how they can fix it tho.
