Skull and rats for @pjrvs today! His pet rats are cuter and cuddlier than most cats. #yeahiwentthere #sorryinternetcats #rattat #petscrotum #tattoo
All of this is 100% true.
I didn’t do the skull. Thanks Abby! (at Hold It Down Tattoo)
My advice for that feeling would be to keep looking around for an artist until you fall in love with somebody’s portfolio! <3
Opinions on watercolour tattoos can be found at www.sorryyouruinedyourself.tumblr.com/tagged/watercolourtattoo, and Alice Carrier’s tattoos are always lovely. Flowers are timeless. They’ll never get old.
Do you want us to tell you whether we think your plans are good ideas, or do you want to know whether they’re things that can go wrong easily?
The things you want to do aren’t very complicated to do, so there’s honestly not a lot that can go wrong unless your artist is a scratcher.
Our blog has a general gripe with wrist tattoos and handwriting tattoos, because we think they can go wrong in more than the literal sense.
You and your fiancé love each other and want to celebrate that, which is nice. However, your ideas may have consequences that you’re probably not thinking about now. Wrist tattoos can turn into regret very quickly, as they are very visible. Should you break up, it’s a very annoying place to cover up if you don’t want something bigger there.
Handwriting tattoos are a nice idea in theory, but are often illegible, which completely throws off the purpose of the tattoo. They never stay the way they looked and fade into a blurred mess after a couple of years.
We say this kind of stuff a lot here on the blog - and it’s really, really not meant to attack you for your ideas. We’ve just heard of too many people who regretted an idea like yours, so we just want to make you think before you commit to a tattoo like that :)
Check out different kinds of matching tattoos (like this one / this one / this one / this one, for example). If you still want to do the handwriting thing, check out tattoos like this!
I won’t comment on the ring finger tattoos (each to their own, I don’t really care about them).
First of all, we’re multiple people (one tattoo apprentice, one art student and one tattoo fan).
All we can say to you is that there’s no need to be embarrassed. Body artists have seen all kinds of different bodies. They don’t pass judgement and wouldn’t have a reason to. Stretch marks are something natural, they’re not your fault. Your piercer probably won’t react at all.
Hey! Did you reverse image search it to see if you can find the source that way?
Alternatively, if you’re not sure if the tattoo was done by this woman, simply shoot her a message and ask her if it’s her work.
Here’s the cover up I did for @Megan_massacre on last week’s episode of America’s Worst Tattoos. Tons of fun! Now you have to tattoo me, lady!
Northwest beach scene, thanks Caitlyn.
