Anonymous said: i got a tattoo i week ago on my calf, it still hurts. is that normal? can i put neosporin on it?

No don’t put that on it. Use aquaphor. It takes about two weeks for a tattoo to heal if cared for properly. You’ll be fine

Anonymous said: which finger is most commonly tatted and which is the most painful

Probably all the same pain wise. Not sure what is the most common. I would pick the middle finger.

You should be fine.

Do i go to Microsoft word and print out the number in the exact font and size I like? Do I find a photo of someone with the font I like and print it out? Do I hand draw it?

Having reference would be helpful.

Sit still and enjoy the process.

Anonymous said: Hi! So I'm getting a tattoo on on ribs in a few weeks and I'm extremely nervous from hearing all the rumors about how painful it is and it's the worst spot to get done... It'll be my 3rd tattoo too so I know what it feels like but I'm honestly terrified of needles, I'm a little bitch lol. Is there anything I could do to not make it as painful? Any tips or anything? Thanks :)

Unfortunately I can’t help you there. I have both of mine done and it was rough. Good luck. :)

Wait till it is healed before you worry about it. Yellows and oranges get less vibrant as they age.

Imperial tattoo would be a good start. Gunnar foley might be a good fit.

I’d have to see the design. She might just be a prude. Go to someone that is excited about your idea. You’ll be happier In the end
