  2. I need ideas for new tattoos

    Sounds like you have a good start on most of the latest trends, follow on with an infinity symbol morphing into a flock of bird 🦅 silhouettes with a mandala at the centre in white ink 😉 and get get it upside down because it’s for YOU 🤣
  3. I need some ideas for my lower arm backside. The front side has a clock with the pointer pointed to my birth day. Some feather, a key, and a chrysanthemum. im going to do a Phoenix on my upperarm later, but for now I want to Finnish my underarm sleeve. What symbol or objects do you guys thinks go well with what I mentioned on the first paragraph? thanks you in advance regards, Janei
  4. Weird healing

    Well I was hoping to get some opinions on this odd healing? Is it scarring, blow out, etc...this is the first time I’ve used tattoo specific balm for the healing process but I’ve kept multiple tattoos healthy through healing so I’m not sure. I used Redemption because the artist recommended it and it looked great through healing, it just never really cleared back into the crisp look. I got it in August...talking about weirdness in the blue/teal.

  6. Back tattoo ideas to complete

    Did they not show you the finished drawing?
  7. Back tattoo ideas to complete

    Lol and the sad part is I wasn't so unhappy with the first tattoo. It's just the vision I went with and the result after the artist drew it is so different. Not sure I like what I have so far
  8. Back tattoo ideas to complete

    Already unhappy with one tattoo and didn't think the cover up through? Oops.
  9. Back tattoo ideas to complete

    Just not happy with the Raven we chose. So many better ones out there. The graphic we chosen had it's head turning and kind of looked cool but it didn't carry over on to the actual tattoo well. Thought maybe we could fill empty space to take away from that
  10. Prison Tats

    Perhaps its a kudos thing been involved in shit myself just never felt the need to brag about it on a forum lol
  11. Prison Tats

    This is true...but Bunny Boy is not in possession of that quality of work. And "by the way, I got these in prison" adds nothing to "I want to get better; how do I improve these efforts?"
  12. Back tattoo ideas to complete

    Let him finish as planned. Once the sky is toned - maybe with a cloudy texture and a distant skyline - the overall effect will look nicely balanced.
  13. I had my back started yesterday. Small cover-up and wanted something large. Decided on Ravens but not exactly happy with what I chose. Any ideas to finish this off? The artist added a moon on the right hand side but I was thinking sun rays? Any ideas appreciated. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Bq6Bv1aP5C5ug8oi2

    Not all prison ink is terrible ive seen some really good stuff
  15. Prison Tats

    That you have "prison tats" is irrelevant to any discussion, here. It's a qualification that comes up now and then and I'm not sure why as it should be an embarrassment of which sharing is reserved for close friends. Doing something worth going to jail for is an indicator of a person being stupid or an asshole. And as far as tattooing is concerned; it's as relevant as telling us you learned a lot about romancing women by jerking off to lady-boy porn.
  16. turning a drawing into a sleeve

    sleeves are complicated, let the tattoo artist do the work
  17. Hi people!

    Good day people, I'm new to this forum and just want to introduce myself. I've been interested in the art of tattooing for years and years now and decided to take the step to learn it myself. I have no intention to turn it into a job or start tattooing other people any time soon though. My focus is on learning it because I simply love everything about it. Must say my respect for tattoo artists has rapidly grown since I've started After doing 40'ish pigskin tattoos I recently started practicing on myself. Partly out of curiosity and partly because people advised me to do so to further my learning. I've found that tattooing dead pig doesn't even come close to the reality of actual human skin. And it shows in the, quite horrendous, tattoos I now have on my legs Despite the not so pretty results for now I do love to tattoo and I hope this forum can provide me with information to keep developing and improving... To give you all an idea of my progress... here's one of the pieces I recently did on my leg. Cheers! Pieter
  18. My medium of choice is pen and ink, or graphite- I am aspiring tattoo artist, but maybe in the very distant future. My brother in-law really likes my work and commissioned me to design a full arm sleeve with elements from a story he told, that he could then take to a tattoo artist to "recreate". I was unable to get in touch with him for a few weeks and decided to just create an illustration for him. Now I am back in touch and he has given me his measurements. I feel kind of bad, but he really wants the tattoo to be close to the original work (hence not going straight to the tattooist from the start).The illustration has a lot of meaningful elements and symbolism that I don't want to scrap but the placement of these elements are far from fitting onto an arm. Without having to show you my illustration, could someone tell me some sort of "principle of design" I can adhere to? Something to keep in mind besides the obviousness of the shape and stretching, how to keep the foreground and background from melding too much? Im sorry if this is vague but I really am unsure how to describe it.

  21. japanese sleeve ideas?

  22. tattoos that compliment mountains

    What do you like? if your first tattoo is on your leg and the next will be on your arm why does it need to compliment it
  23. hey, what do you guys think are some objects/other tattoos that compliment a mountain tattoo? Thanks!
  24. hello! I've been wanting to get a second tattoo for a while now, and its been difficult for me to find one that has meaning to me. My first and only tattoo is of a mountain range- on my left arm's outer forearm near the wrist. It is about 3 inches long. I only have one picture of my tattoo on my laptop, so I hope the one I provide gives you an idea of what I have. Im considering another tattoo of either a dove, or a flower. The dove has meaning to me, and I'm still currently looking into what kind of flower I would consider. If I have anything done, I would want it on the back of my arm, above my elbow. Do you think that this placement would look stupid because of my already existing tattoo on my forearm? The tattoo I would get on the back of my arm would not be huge, probably the same size as my current one. also, Do you have any advice as to what kind of tattoo may compliment the one I have now? Im open to suggestions too, I just want another tattoo. Im open to any and all ideas, because I'm running out of my own. Thanks!
