Good luck with that one.


yeah, but the thing is she's got her life-job now, she's set. There's no worries about that tat interfering with her earning potential, and she doesn't need to keep up her appearances for the dating-scene, either. She's golden.

It's the donkeys that get shiat like that before they've set themselves up for life that are truly the dumbest farktards in the universe.

homelessdude getting a tattoo in the first place hurts.My first tattoo took up my entire side from hip to right under armpit.It is hard to explain the pain but it hurts.I thought it hurt more than when I lacerated my fingers or severed my lip.
People who say say it doesn't hurt are lying.All my tattoos are in "painful" spots.Maybe some spots are not that bad.

That being said I imagine removing any of mine would be unbearable.I can understand why someone would get a cover up(less pain,sometimes removal doesn't get it all off).

Wasn't there an over/under in that thread about how long either one of them are going.... make it. Through life, that is?

Big kudos to the artist, but from 5 feet away, it probably looks like a giant black blob, and in a few years when his skin starts to sag and the ink has become less defined, what's he going to have? A giant black blob, even up close. Is that better or worse than what he had? I don't know.

I'm not a tattoo guy, but I'm kind of tired of looking at all the awful ink that people put on their bodies, which ranges from sad to WTF was he thinking? There's an older guy at my gym who looks like he was in a car fire, but no, it's just that he's covered with an awful blur of tattoos that have all run together now that he's had them for 30 years. If you're building your personality around that shiat, it's just sad.

Don't get me wrong, big props to the artist in every way, especially for doing it for free, but sometimes tattoo people need to know when to say when.

My bet is, she kills herself within three months of the breakup. Which will be in less than a year.

Uh, no?

Mine was uncomfortable more than anything but its a bicep band, which is the least sensitive place evars. I honestly didn't have much or any pain except when the guy did the back of my arm, and I suspected that was more because I couldn't see him than anything.

But I have leather level thick skin, and no bones or stereotypically sensitive spots were involved.

But it doesn't 'hurt and anyone who says otherwise lies'. It's spot, artist (yours sound like they push down a LOT. Do you also scar heavily?), and personal pain tolerance (mine is moderate).

While I don't disagree that the tattoo now represents a significant improvement over the previous tragedy, it appears that there are a lot of farkers who confuse "good art" with "the sort of overwrought, too-aggressive shading that would make even Aubrey Beardsley go, 'Whoah, dude, dial it back a notch, maybe?'"

I'm a very skinny female who has tons of large pieces on my arms, legs, spine, thighs, etc. (all can be covered up) and the only time I've ever experienced any amount of pain was the dull vibration while my spine was being worked on. The thighs and inner arms are a bit tingy, but nothing to cry about.

And like I said, I'm skinny.

Women also have a higher tolerance for pain though ;)

KatjaMouse: Louisiana_Sitar_Club: I have the same question but I'm disingenuously curious.

I went to art school with a lot of illustrators who also apprenticed at tattoo shops. What happened was that the tattoo practice affected their drawing more than the other way around. When they'd submit their drawings for critique in class you can see there was a more steady/delicate hand at work and a sensitivity to the medium than when they had started off that year. We weren't painters so I don't imagine it would have translated that well but the pencil/charcoal/ink drawings were spectacular.


Not to mention pencils don't have motors and moving parts in them.  I had a friend who could draw really well that started to apprentice in a tattoo shop...  it took her a while to be able to ink even basic geometric shapes on an orange.  I would imagine it's a picnic for a good tattoo artists to sketch with pencil/charcoal/ink on paper after mastering the control necessary to do it with a gun.

2013-02-22 11:52:19 AM

RedT: Real Women Drink Akvavit: homelessdude: lilplatinum: You could remove the tattoo..

I have no tattoos so I don't know.....but is that not really painful?

So I've been told. I have heard though that it is painful and expensive. It takes more than one treatment and the results can be less than ideal. There's a doctor (or group of doctors, I forget which) in my area that helps ex gang members and ex convicts by removing their gang and prison tats for free.

I think this dude in the article did the right thing by going for a cover up/fix of the crappy tat. He wanted a tat anyway of his late bride, he just didn't do his research very well from the looks of things. He did better research the second time around, obviously. The artist who fixed it ROCKS, too! Awesome job, especially considering what he had to work with. Now THAT'S talent!

My husband has been having a large dark tattoo lasered off.

Every time he goes in (every 6-8 weeks) he comes home with what looks like a 2nd degree burn (it bleeds and needs to be bandaged).  It's been over a year and it is much much lighter but still very visible.  He doesn't go in as much as he used to.  Eventually the ink will be gone, but I suspect the scarring will be visible (my husband scars very easily and all of his tattoos look raised) and the scar will be a ghost of the tat (it's a tribal and it's on his back).


What the hell is his problem? Why did he get it in the first place if he was just going to get it mutilated/not-removed-removed in the end anyway? Is he a giant girl's blouse?

I have one on my back. It didn't just hurt. It felt like someone carving up my back with a hot scalpel for a few hours. That's what you get when you have thin skin over top of your spine.
 
2013-02-22 11:58:04 AM
It looks much, much better. I don't like it, but it's definitely a huge improvement. Overall it's really dark, I imagine because the artist had no choice but to add even more shading to fix the original.
