Only in body mod land. I had to have my CBRs taken out of my tragus piercings today and swapped for posts. I have to go for panoramic xrays at the dentist and there was no way in hell I was going to get the CBRs out at the office before the xrays were taken.

I got my bud his first tattoo for a late birthday present. He squirmed, spazmed, and teared up the whole time. Im surprised the artist didnt **** up, he was legitimately seizure-shaking and yelling. Think 40-year-old-virgin style.



Getting a new tattoo hopefully in late February. The idea is drawn up, but ill have the artist work it out a little better

edit: stretching my septum to a 6 in a week or two

Thats an awsome sleeve, love the colors!

Cheers man :-) The sleeve below it is done by the amazing monkey king (Jeff Tam), and the piece below that is done by the even more amazing Tommy Lee Wendtner - If you don't know him, go and find him :-) Massively expensive, but ridiculously talented.

Would you all consider a septum piercing "obtrusive"?

Not at all. Mines a 6 and I cant even tell its there, especially with a retainer in. The first weeks after getting it suck, but after it heals its like nothing. It also depends on the jewlery you stick through it.

Is it faded "scabby" or just faded? Tattoos do go through a healing process where they scab over, the scabs fall off and the tattoo remains. But if you are concerned, talked to your artist and make sure you continue to follow their instructions.

1. Its healing, relax. Its gonna look a little faded for a while
2. why did you wear a bandage over it, especially that long? You can take off the cling wrap/bandage after a couple hours

This! Why do you wear a bandage over your new tattoo? It heals better if it can breath.

Because of the risk of infection, bleeding and due to you stopping the healing process by removing the scab.

Wounds don't heal better when they can breathe, that doesn't even mean anything. Oxygen is delivered to skin internally via the blood stream, not externally. All wounds should be covered so they can heal with as little contamination from foreign bacteria as possible until the healing process can start.

Admittedly, the healing process will start quite quickly after a tattoo and after a matter of hours, or a day its usually fine to remove the bandage, but that's why people keep it on.

Most people don't bother at all. Do what your tattoo artist suggests or even better, consult a Doctor.

You should leave the plastic wrapper on for a couple of hours. Not put a bandage on it for a couple of days!
