Mary asks…

Will tattoo miscolouring fade?

I got a tattoo 2 days ago (the skull on the top left of this flash sheet http://tattoo-art.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=226_289&products_id=23289 ) but the white face of the design is red (http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j219/lordgod666/2.jpg ). Will this fade into the correct colour?

Vanessa answers:

It does look like your artist put red where you wanted white. It is true that white does not hold up, and can pretty much disappear in 6 months. There must have been some miscommunication between you. I understand, because I thought that an artist under stood what I wanted, and I got a ‘curly fur’ look, instead of a tattoo that was suppose to look like a brush stroke… I had to have someone else fix it, but it is not my original plan. I like it though. So, you need to realize that it is what it is, there is no going back. Try looking at it with fresh eyes, you may find that without your previouse expectations, that you like it. If it is any consulation, I like it because it is different than anyone elses, and I think that the red looks cool. If you hate it, you may need to think of a cover up.

John asks…

>>help<< tattoo info!!?

I have two tattoos already. I’m looking into a third one. Usually I’ll do extensive research for the perfect design before I get it done.

I’m having a hard time looking for my third design though. I can’t seem to find any good websites to look at.

here are the ones I’ve been suggested to go to:
http://www.ratemyink.com/?query=cats&action=sr [no luck]
http://tattoojohnny.com/ [also no luck]
http://www.tattoofinder.com/ [again, no luck]
http://bmeink.com/bme-tatt.html [sorta helpful]

not naming any of those sites, where else can I look? All people will get a thumbs up for answering :]

thanks
okay wow, thumbs down to all four answers so far. Not helpful.
Yes, I have a design in mind, but not a good enough idea to be able to get it drawn for me.. websites would be most helpful to me right now thanks

Vanessa answers:

Try TattooArtists.org. Very nice site.

Sandra asks…

Professional tattoo artists, price range?

I want this flower but roughly the size of the palm of my hand. I want it on my ribs. About how much do you think it would be?

http://www.weddingdepot.com/catalog/images/cc_info/designs/partysfl.gif

it would be exactly the way it is seen here(: so between 60 and 100? awesome, thanks!

Vanessa answers:

Would it be colored in, strictly as is? As is would be about $60. Colored in, you are looking at anywhere from $100 to $150 depending on the detail. Ken is correct. That piece would probably take about an hour, maybe a little longer, depending on the details I mentioned before.

Paul asks…

What do you think of this tattoo?

I want to get it on the back of my left should, not too big and not small. My two ideas are

1.) A lion [artistically done] standing on a rock with the bottom of the rock kind of sketched, and the lion breathing flames into a sun above him.

2.) A male and female lion on a rock with their heads kind of intertwined, sort of like a yin-yang symbol… http://tattoo-art.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=70_76&products_id=1839 This is how I would want the lions to look like but make the design slightly different.

I am a leo by zodiac sign (and fit the description of a Leo to the letter) and my favorite animal has always been a lion so I feel it’d be appropriate, and I have a friend who is a really excellent artist and she could probably put these ideas down on paper for me, what do you think of them? I feel that if done well I think it would look really good.. and this will be my first tattoo by the way.
David, tattoos have been around forever in every culture and everyone I know who actually has a tat that it is meaningful to them are not regretful about it. If it’s been around this long I doubt that tattoos will stop ANY time soon. It’s a form of art, you stupid conservative old bastards refuse to see that.. god I hate people who are call all tattoos trashy, f*ck you.

Vanessa answers:

It really is up to you, and in the end you have to remember that it’s a life long commitment. So if your not happy about it then you be cursing your self everyday.

Overall reading about these tats idea, every tattoo has a meaning, I see #1 being a symbol of individuality, a leader of a pack, especially with flames and the sun it gives a powerful image.

#2 looks great as well but doesn’t show what I have said above being a leader & individuality, instead it shows supportive and caring and would be ideal if you are getting married. Think about it, the male is right next to the female meaning the male lion is more of a protector whilst the female is more caring and supportive. Of course this is just my opinion and thus you should believed whats best for you. I remember my ex loved lions and I told her, if I were ever going to get married to her, I let draw the tattoo and would get a “lion king” type on my left chest. Never happen just waiting what to do with my left chest now lol

Just a tip; try researching what “lion” means in many cases you find similarities with other animals and websites, I recommend looking both western & eastern (especially Chinese) in there philosophy of what lions usually mean. For example I’m a dragon, in the west I’m considered a dangerous creature but only obeys his king with his treasure; in the east I’m a protector of the heavens of the ancient gods. Both of them have in common that my animal signalize bravery & courage and a “guardian” type to it. However both also west and east agree my animal is to guard the treasures of my lords and if a knight or hero slayed me down they would become the victor. Yippie *rolls eyes*, however all tats have a positive and negative side to it, now in the 21st century a Dragon in Asia is considered a gang symbol “Triads” or association with “Yakuza’s”

You just have to be careful and not to “over do it” but in the end it really is your choice.

Vanessa answers:

1 is really creative…. I love it!!!
2 is pretty cool… It shows the regal side of the LEO

you may want to look at pictures directly from nature and have the tattoo artist interpret from there… I would stray from tattoo image sites… They are pretty plain…and lots of people use them… Similarity is bad for tattoos unless it’s on purpose

I would go with 1 but tame the Lion’s expression with his mouth open…. And the male lion is cool because of his distinct mane… The female can get confused with other wild animals (which sucks)

as for getting a tattoo on the shoulder it will feel like sharp scratching but bearable… Just hold onto a towel or cushion and try to talk to a friend or the artist to take the focus off the pain… And do not take a pain reliever or drink alcohol before (they thin your out your blood often making the pain worse)

This Will Help Your Tattoo Later On:

~the extra ink will come off like it’s peeling-that’s normal as long as the image is still there…
~you will need to wash it a few times a day and apply an unscented lotion, cocoa butter or A&D every few hours (ask your artist)
~Slap your tattoo when it itches (and it will) scratching the tattoo will only ruin it…
~and the artists normally do touch-ups and usually your original artist will do them for free (depends on your artist)
~give it air and don’t go in the sun w/o sunscreen…
The pool, hot tub, direct sun exposure is awful while healing
~ it will be completely healed in about 2-3 weeks (if it still itches at all, it hasn’t healed all the way yet)

this will come up later… Just thought I’d save you some worry
