    Help with half sleeve ideas

    I’ll say it before some of the others do..... don’t bother posting shit, this is not a place to come to and make 1 ‘single’ post because you’re either too stupid or too lazy or both to come up with either half an idea of your own or to visit a tattoo shop in your area and discuss your dilemma with them( they don’t usually charge you unless you actually agree to get something drawn up) there is always “google” where you can browse tattoo ideas until you die
  3. Well you should have stated that! You asked ‘is it an infection or an allergy’ , this is a tattoo forum not an Internet doctors surgery. But since you are here asking , it could be a number of things .... reaction to ink , infection or it could be something completely unrelated to the fact that you have a recent tattoo in the same area of skin! Go see a professional doctor or skin specialist

    Gday ALL

    Welcome Rob, the forums pretty dead these days as Facebook and insta seem to have taken over from the forums
  5. Go to your doctor and go back to your artist, we can’t help you here!
  6. Been watching too much “Miami ink” or the likes.... nobody “really” wants to hear your bullshit story behind your “tattoo” . Just pic a picture from the wall ... “old school” style ?

    Tattoo healed badly, not sure why

    To me it looks like it was done with cheap inks by someone who can’t tattoo , but you say it was done in a shop. ? you say you looked after it well but the 2nd pic looks like a massive scab, you do know you had to wash it and the scab would have been minimal? unless it’s a ‘healing’ thing due to your medical condition then I have no answer for you (my sister is type 1 diabetic with loads of tattoos and never once had any problems) except go back to the shop where it was done and get them to fix it as it’s only6 months old and looks like it’s 60 years old! Good luck!

    nature ideas

    ?‍♂️ So you have a ‘plan’ but you don’t know what to get , but whatever you get has to be hidden, so you came here to get ideas?? have you tried a google search for ‘forest tattoo’ ? why not get a nice unicorn ? on your leg as it will fit with the ‘forest’ theme that you are aiming for. other than that suggestion you could always go into a tattoo shop and explain your predicament to an artist there...

    My first tattoo

    The first tattoo you should do should be on yourself! that way you get a feel for speed, depth, angle, stretch, etc without fucking someone up

    Is my tattoo too dark?

    It will lighten up considerably although the stuff in the inside has been made pretty dark on purpose to accentuate the leaves. Looks pretty damn fine to me. I would wear it no problem. Leave it alone and let it heal and your hair grow back, it’s amazing how much it tones down
  11. Try acting like a ‘grown-up’ and the info/assistance/pointers gets better, keep acting like a total twat and it all stops ... just sayin’ ?
  12. Not much point sharing our knowledge as you seem to know it all already judging by your whole attitude, but since you are here..... raised and bumpy probably due to overworked skin or going too fast with machine or too slow with hand causing it to basically tear your skin more like a cut than a series of holes ( if that makes sense!) palms and fingers are difficult to tattoo as there are real hard parts on the palm and some much softer parts, hence your blowouts. These almost always need retouching , sometimes several times as the skin on your hands(and feet) seem to be worn away and regenerates faster than other parts of the body rinsing white each time.... not necessary unless you are using other colours at the same time (highlighting a healed tattoo with white as opposed to highlighting a fresh piece where you could be picking up tiny parts of another colour although I’ve never come across this, I guess it could happen !?)

    Tattooing Feet

    Maybe you had a secret foot fetish to be following the thread ? .... or maybe you were hoping someone would find the best slippers in the world for your poor wee aching tootsies ?, either way it’s good to see ya back man, how ya been?
