    Yeah I have a half sleeve on my left arm. That’s what I said, I was like wouldn’t I need 10 days to recover and come back. He said it would be 3 consecutive days

    god speed. I assume he will probably work top down and not do one big outline. I couldn’t do it but more power to you if you can. I’d love to hear how it goes once you’re done.

    I’m not up to date on current rates. My artist has been working on me for 20 years so he gives me a friend and family discount. While that does seem high when you put it that way, think about it this way. It’s not about how long on will take (breaking the cost down per hour) but how long you’ll have it (the rest of your life). Also why not consider breaking it down over time 2-3 weeks apart that way you’re not dropping 3 grand in a day or two but over a month or 2 and it psychologically doesn’t hurt as much.

    3 grand for a full entire arm sleeve isn't that bad

    17 hours also seems pretty quick. Maybe he's really fast. Those are pretty detailed black and white tattoos

    He’s done basketball players and that’s why I think his price is higher

    I would absolutely pay that rate for the quality of work he is putting out. Are you going to him or is he coming to you? From his IG it looks like he travels for work but I’m curious how much he charges for that

    Fuck doing back to back days. I had my pec/shoulder/sleeve done over 4 sessions and 2 months. By the end I was saying I’m not sure if I would ever get another tattoo.

    not ideal. all skin types are different but my guy does tattoo shows and his biggest issue is he doesnt believe it heals well b2b. Having 2 weeks + off the skin will heal then go back in.

    I think he should do the shading but I am not the type to dictate what someone puts on their body.

    so looking back I think I would like additional shading work down in the bottom half and the sword however that tattoo was done during my last day living in Maine as I move to Texas.

    Is asking an artist to shade someone else’s work acceptable or should I wait until I’m back in Maine visiting next summer?

    Wife started tattooing again after 15 years. Did her 10th tattoo today. Says she won't tattoo me until 50. I'll be covered once she starts on me.

    It's a character from the Witcher books as she appears in one of the video games that is an unofficial sequel. Since I was a kid I have loved fantasy books and they remain my favorite form of escapism. The Witcher 3 video game in particular really helped give me a world to run away to in the last year when I was going through a really, really rough time

    you can do cardio and yoga and stuff like that after about a week or so. You don’t want to lift (other than lower body) too soon. I honestly don’t do anything more than a light jog or bike ride for a couple weeks.

    I went back to the gym immediately :idk:

    As long as you don't rub it against things y I I'll be fine. Just wash it well after.

    Hell, I rode my bike 8 miles home after one

    you’re not supposed it’s not hygienic. It’s an open wound. Also were his us located the stress of any upper body work will be bad for it. I just like to be safe.

    I kinda agree and get it, but I've always just kept it out of contact with anything and made sure to give it a good cleaning asap and been fine.

    Just make sure it isn't rubbing anything

    to me imo it’s just easier and safer not to go to the gym than worry about what you shouldn’t do. To me imo that’s what I do.

    Keep it wrapped for a day or two and it will be fine. Just don’t submerge it in water.

    My guy sent me a draft of what he’s thinking about for my half sleeve. Cormac McCarthy is my favorite author, and No Country is my favorite book. Obviously, this is heavier on some movie elements but I’m digging it.

    dont do this either. You want it to breathe and start to heal. You need to wash it and start putting whatever ointment you’re putting on It after 3-4 hours.
