  1. dark background; then, anything you want. And make sure your tattooer has a plan for the whole thing, based on how much coverage you want. You don't want something that looks patched together.
  2. welcome to the forum
  3. Nice work. Welcome to the forum
  4. I didn't have boobs at the time of my chest tattoo; but now, closing in on 50, with a preference for good food and booze along with a job that has me sitting on my ass most of the time, I'd say Ive developed quite a nice set. But I'm a guy so exercise would matter. I take it your a woman (not an out of shape middle aged man); in which case no amount of exercise will maintain your breast tissue. They're gonna drop an wrinkle just like my nuts. So there's that. Get a design similar to a henna style, or lace. Those will move with your body and look good even if movement or posture distorts them. A "picture" such as a butterfly is just going to be twisted looking unless your standing perfectly straight. Besides, butterfly tattoo's are for your crotch, not your cleavage. And, most importantly, if you're just here to spam us with boob enlargement links, how about you just get some advertisements tattooed right across your nice new shiny plastic bubbles and walk around naked. That could appear really hot as well (to a teenaged boy perhaps)
  5. I like turtles
  6. floral background
  7. Large fields of black don't really cover all that well. Black is dark, but still mixes with the color it's being added into. No texture = no camouflage.
  8. Hey

    Welcome to the forum
  9. Easier said than done; but you've just got to find a way to relax. If your getting shaky from the start, then it's just in your head. Bring your phone and watch a movie, or just listen to something distracting. In the past I've found that "focusing on your breathing" when anxious just reminds that I'm trying to not be anxious....which then makes me anxious.
  10. welcome to the forum. Got questions? Ask 'em. Got info? Fork it over. Not too many people keeping this thing going, but somebody'll put their two cents in. You tattooing or getting tattooed?
  11. Photo?
  12. Doesn't matter. Get ready to get requests....I mean demands by the Pinterest tattoo design shoppers
  13. I usually have twisted vines, leaves and small buds throughout the background in floral sleeves. I make a flowing pattern that carries through the whole design with the vines. The small colored flowers would look good, too. My criticism of what you already have is that it lacks texture. The leaves and stems have the same line weight and smooth shading as the petals. And the roses are somewhat randomly shaded. What you have is a good start, though, and can be easily refined.
  14. post a photo
  15. I think older Criticals had a short/overload protection in them. If the machine had a short and the coils kept the a-bar clamped down, the ps would shut off. When you hooked up a rotary the ps would read the continuous draw as a short and shut off the machine. That was fixed a few years ago. So, if your machine keeps running - the ps/machine combo is fine.
  16. Is this on yourself?
  17. does that have white, or is it open skin?
  18. and maybe throw in a photo for a clue
  19. and consider this thread hijacked. I think Mitch was done with us anyway.
  20. I'll se your grouping numbers and line samples and raise you a side by side comparison of Talens, Dynamic, and Bluebird greywash dilutions; and throw in a complete Waverly color chart on my inner thigh for good measure. Who's next?
  21. Shige's book is one I can recommend.
  22. how about you just keep these in one thread. Tattoo-related it may be; but it's still coming off as spam.
  23. Draw/paint much?
  24. If you're doing some real ghetto shit for money, maybe a tattoo isn't the wisest choice for spending what money you have?
  25. Welcome to the forum
