  1. This is my first tattoo. I got it on November 12th. Does this look normal? The scabbing and milky color is freaking me out that something is wrong. It isn’t warm to the touch or anything or really red. Thanks for any answers!
  2. Hi, this is my first time posting, and I was wondering if you all have any recommendations about tattooing with problematic skin. Basically my skin is super dry, so I use a light moisturizer daily. I was wondering if this would create any problems for a tattoo? In addition, is it recommended to get a test to see if I might react to ink (and how does one go about this)? And one last question, what is the protocol about getting tattooed with acne? Generally my skin doesn't have acne, but I am on minocycline to help suppress it, I don't know if that would be a problem. Basically I just want to make sure that I won't be wasting the time of the artist when I do walk into their studio. Thank you so much!
  3. Hello everyone, My name is Ryan and I’m a designer from the UK. I am currently working on a new project producing a book of tattoos from around the world. As well as exploring the various styles or tattoos and the history behind them the main aim of the book is to show off meaning full tattoos and the reasons behind them. All tattoos are unique and it would be good to give people the chance to explain the reasoning behind them to people who look at body art in a negative light. If you have some meaningful ink you wish to show off or if you are an artist who has worked on some special pieces and would like some exposure and would be interested in supplying images and a small description of the work in the book please get in touch with me. Everyone will be credited in the book with a link to their website / social media, or if preferred can remain anonymous. Please contact me at studio@ryanthedesigner.uk or on instagram @ryan_the_designer . Thank you Ryan
  4. First Tattoo Advice

    Hey, for a few years now I've been thinking about getting a tattoo and finally decided that it is time I do the proper research on it. In terms of design, I am thinking something alike the following image. From the picture only the outline matters, not the colours. It is basically a combination of the following: They both have huge emotional meaning for me personally as they do represent an important part of my childhood. In big lines, the first one represents courage and the second one friendship. Initially, I've only thought about getting the first one ( the sun ) but later I found a combination of the two. Here are my questions: 1. Where should I place it? I know I want someplace visible for me yet not sure where. As for my build, I'm a tall fit (gymnastics like body ) guy, in his early 20s. Thinking inner forearm but not sure. 2. What suggestions do you have about the design? All ideas are welcome
