• Couldn't tattoo shops just ignore the law and tattoo minors to make more money?

    I mean how would they get caught? Why does a given minor feel the need to tell the police or investigative body which shop did the tattoo for them. Sure, SOME shops have websites and SOME of those sites link their artist's portfolios which depict SOME of the tattoos that artist had done, so I suppose some law... show more

Sure, SOME shops have websites and SOME of those sites link their artist's portfolios which depict SOME of the tattoos that artist had done, so I suppose some law enforcement agency could look tbrough all that to see if they find a pic of tbe tattoo. But the shop can just not put pictures of those tattoos in their portfolio and tell the minor "If anyone asks, you didn't get this here." Cha-ching?

  • Why should tattoo artists be legal?

    Best answer: Tattoos should be banned, period. A super expensive luxury, with no intrinsic value and zero return on investment. From a few feet away it only looks unwashed (bloody dirty) and often they want to get rid of it in later years.
    Peace.

  • How do I tell a tattoo artist that Im thinking about going to someone else who works at their shop without being rude/hurting their feelings?

    Best answer: Tell the first person that you changed your mind, but you appreciate her time. And leave it at that. If she gets pissy about it, she shouldn't be in the tattooing business.

  • Can i get a tattoo of a dead person's art?

    ok i know the question was phrased a bit weirdly but hear me out. in a few years i'd like to get a tattoo honoring my favorite musician/artist. it'd probably either be of album art he's made or of a character from his comic, but i don't know if using his art would be the most respectful choice. do... show more
    ok i know the question was phrased a bit weirdly but hear me out. in a few years i'd like to get a tattoo honoring my favorite musician/artist. it'd probably either be of album art he's made or of a character from his comic, but i don't know if using his art would be the most respectful choice. do you think it would be better just to have a tattoo inspired from a song? he died over a decade ago so i can't ask him myself, and i don't think there's any way to contact the family. also before i get any "either way it sounds like a stupid idea" answers, this is something i've thought a lot about and his work means very much to me. not to go into my whole life story, it's gotten me through a very rough time in my life, which would be me trying to cope with some trauma (but i wouldn't really say his stuff saved my life or anything cliche, it just helped distract me). then again i still have time to think more about this and i may change my mind but still i just wanna know what's the best thing to do if i end up getting the tattoo.

  • Tattoo peeling after only 5 days?

    I got a fairly big tattoo on the front of my thigh and I'm 5'8 so it's about 9 inches long and 5 inches wide. I only bled in one spot that he went over several times.

    I got a fairly big tattoo on the front of my thigh and I'm 5'8 so it's about 9 inches long and 5 inches wide. I only bled in one spot that he went over several times. My artist said to do aquaphor for a week and a half to avoid scabbing (I know all tattoos scab because they are wounds, but he meant big scabs like you would expect on a cut etc.) And I could switch to lotion after that. I never bled ink or had excessive plasma. By the second day the redness and swelling was already gone. I noticed on Friday it was soaking up the ointment like it was extremely dry and mild itching started. Now on Sunday it is itching to the point it is unbearable and I am already peeling. Is this just a sign I am going to heal quickly or did I do something wrong? I didn't let it dry out or submerge it in water or anything.

  • In your opinion, is a girl scouting related tattoo a stupid idea for a first tattoo?

    In your opinion, is a girl scouting related tattoo a stupid idea for a first tattoo?

    I was gonna get the blue clover image that represents international scouting, and was gonna get it midway down my forearm. However this is my first ink. Is it a bad idea for an image? Is it in too obvious a place for a first tattoo?

  • I’m getting a foot tattoo. Any advice for pre-paring for one?

    Best answer: Have a light snack / meal before you go to keep your blood sugar up. If you're getting a large tattoo bring some juice with you. You can listen to music if you want to. Try to relax when they're doing the tattoo. Do some research on the shop and the tattoo artist that's going to do your tattoo. If they... show more
