Tattoo pics!


The reason I waited so long to post is because I was scared that it wouldn't heal well. Red ink is notoriously fussy and can cause all sorts of weird reactions and bleh. Well, it's been nearly a month and it looks fine, so hopefully it'll stay awesome.


Based on this graffiti.


This was just a few days after it was done. It was super swollen for nearly 4 days.


3 weeks.


That's a shine from the sun, not a terrible rash.

I love it! The size and placement also turned out perfectly.

Thanks! Yeah, events kept coming up so it took a while to actually get in and do it. I'm really happy with it though.

Thank you! I love how the color came out, as long as it doesn't react badly in the future and explode or something.

It's way cute! I have red in my tattoo and I never had any reactions either. I think some people are just whiners. lol

I'm planning on getting a text tattoo with an all color ampersand at some point. I love seeing color sans outline. It looks so bold. <3

Thanks!
I've seen tattoos where the red just fell out during healing. Some people's skin refuses to take it. Red reactions can get really nasty so I'm happy it healed well.

Yah, going sans outline is definitely a neat effect. I was freaked out for a bit cause the stencil outline was more pronounced right after I got it, but it mellowed out during healing.

Yeah I know. I was being facetious. lol I know of a lady who got an Elmo tattoo (I know, not the best move) and she ended up having a bad reaction (like rash/infection) and ended up having to have laser surgery to remove the tattoo. It wasn't small (maybe 4 inches) or inconspicuous (on her ankle/calf region) so she ended up with a ginormous scar. Major suckage. I'm happy both of our tats healed well too! lol :)

I was extra paranoid cause there's a lot of skin problems in my family, but I'm glad I got it anyway!
