  4. Raised shiny/scaly tattoo after 2 weeks

    Yeah, you’re right...
  5. Hi so I feel like I might be overreacting here, but I got a couple of new tattoos exactly 2 weeks ago, I’m just a bit concerned about the way everything’s healing. I’ve had a few other tattoos done in the past and only one of them is raised because the artist was a bit too heavy handed. This is mostly why I’m concerned because I know that if it’s happened before, it can happen again. I went to a different artist this time around and he’s done one of my tattoos in the past which healed perfectly fine, but it’s small and on the other side of my arm so I didn’t really watch the healing process all that closely. These ones cover my entire forearm so I’m paying more attention to it this time around. I know it’s normal for tattoos to look a little odd (dull/shiny) for a few weeks, but because I have dark skin, I know I might be more susceptible to raised scarring (keloids). That’s my biggest worry, really. I know it might be too soon to tell, but I guess I’m just wondering if it all looks normal for the stage that it’s at? I know everyone’s skin heals differently, but I guess I’d just like to know that it’s not uncommon for tattoos to look like mine after 2 weeks. thanks! some photos of the healing tattoo https://drive.google.com/open?id=18uoEUL1pYtnBzAu75AQcBRHreYxw0Uia

    I forgot about this post, I did the tattoo, if you trust your artist you're gonna be fine, its doesn't hurt my advice would be if u did it on the uper back bellow the neck like me its gonna be hard for you to reach it so you should get someone to help you clean it etc.

  19. Apprenticeship Contract Questions - What's normal?

    So in that case its only fair that you pay your dues if he says five years bear in mind you wont be a tattooist after 1 year it will probably take nearer to 4 or 5
  20. ideas for existing tattoo

    I is always a capital , poor grammar or dyslexic tattooist. Find a more mature artist who at least finished primary school 😏
  21. Apprenticeship Contract Questions - What's normal?

    They gave me the option to pay 7-10,000 for an apprenticeship OR to work for it. I chose to work for it.
  22. Apprenticeship Contract Questions - What's normal?

    Are they charging you for the apprentiship as that will dictate my answer
  23. Apprenticeship Contract Questions - What's normal?

    Look at it like a six year collage course that will give you everything you need, including employment. One year will get you ready to begin tattooing. In the next five years you'll really learn what you're doing. If the owner/tattooers at this shop are putting out high quality work, then the experience of learning their trade skills should supersede your wanderlust for the time being. Also, just because you live in one area doesn't mean you can't travel a bit...getting 1099'ed as an outside contractor teaches you quickly how to turn almost any excursion into a "business trip"
  24. Hey everyone, I could really use some advice making a big life decision! I have been talking to a shop in town and they recently offered me an apprenticeship (woo!) but I'm getting really nervous about committing to their contract. The apprenticeship contract states that after around a year of being an apprentice, I would be required to work there for FIVE years. Five years is a long time for anyone, especially a youngster like me. And this small town isn't the place I want to live in for most of my 20s. Seems like 2 or 3 years would be more reasonable, although I understand that they want to get a lot of work out of me after they teach me so much valuable information. Is five years normal? Is it unheard of for me to try to negotiate with them? Should I maybe just try for another shop in the town that I actually want to live in for the next six years? Thank you so much!
