purely out of curiosity what do you think of my tattoo? (not my first, but my first was itty bitty & i hardly count it as an actual tattoo cause its just a year)

I’m not an astronomer, but should the rings be horizontal? It seems like a weird position. I mean, do you always stand with your arms stretched out to the side? Arm tattoos should be in the correct position when your arms are resting at your side.

So I found the artist but they are located overseas and the artist does not have a phone number/email/facebook for me to contact (they are strictly walk ins). Is it okay if I get the tattoo anyway?

You should take every reasonable step to contact that artist. It seems unlikely that they don’t have social media or some other contact information.  I guarantee there is a way to contact them. Check instagram. Look for webpages. See if any other artists in that area know them. Due diligence.

Cliche? no. But it does’t really make sense from a conceptual standpoint. I mean, an anchor will hold you down. How about a life preserver or some other flotation device? Or how about a cool looking compass and map tattoo? They’re pretty popular these days, but if you find a good artist, he or she can come up with an original design. 

wishicouldlive said: What are your thoughts on word tattoos? (Not song lyrics or anything, and not those whole-lower-arm ones) I.E a very small quote with sentimental meaning somewhere discreet.

I’m not totally against it, but if you are going through the trouble of getting a tattoo, why not get get a cool design that you can show people and be proud of?

ghostts-in-the-wall said: Personally, I love your blog. I, myself plan on getting lots of tattoos but at least I've done my research and searched around for artists until I found one that had a style I enjoyed. Your blog is a brilliant idea for the fact that so many people rush into tattoos and get them done in houses and other non-sterile environments as well as choosing awful artists and BAD ideas, and it raises awareness to that. So, I'd like to thank you for running this blog.

Thanks!

Looks like the beginning of a rash, possibly shingles. You might want to get that checked out
