Spanking your tattoo when it itches helps haha.
Tattoo after-care varies depending on who you talk to. Some artists advice using petroleum jelly, while others are against it because it's oily. Oil will tend to slow the healing time of the tattoo.
I use Vandol cream. I only put petroleum jelly when I play sports. I don't put anything before I take a shower. I wash it with soap regularly too.
In any case, don't be too paranoid. The ink is deep in your epidermis and it will stay there.
Don't worry, I'm legit. I have 7 tattoos with three more lined up this year.
I'm planning to get a large tattoo at the back. Not really large but just a plain cross, but a large one. Just black ink. Mga 9-inch long and 5-inch wide. Pero cross lang siya so it won't take up the whole space. How much do you think would that be? I'm thinking of going to Ricky Sta. Ana's shop.
i had my koi fish done last january.
9x4 inches. whole forearm.
paid 2.5k but for the outline only.
and another 2.5k for the coloring.
I have a phoenix tat sa lower back, pure black lang yung ink.
Here's my tat:
my tat size is actually about 7x3 and not 3x3 as i thought. so i think 3k isn't just a pretty fair price
Im 5 months pregnant. Can I still get a tattoo?
I'm planning to have my son's name tattooed on my left wrist. As in small tat lang showing his name.
here's my tat.
i'm planning to bring it to another artist for enhancement. mejo di ako satisfied e. then siguro mga 2 new tats later and i'll stop.
anyway napalagay ko na sya last december...maybe i've forgotten the pain of my first tattoo coz it really really hurt.
And I'm satisfied na with two tattoos unless i find a great design again
still contemplating on having another one .... tsk tsk ... i only put p. jelly when am gonna take a bath,otherwise,yung vandol ointment lang...ang greasy kasi ng feeling eh..hahawa pa sa bedsheets mo
bumping this up because I am itching for another tat!
Dahil sa kapapanood ko ng Miami Ink at L.A. Ink sa Discovery Channel parang gusto ko na rin tuloy magpaganito... sa inner wrist. Still thinking of a design.
Ask ko lang, matagal ko na balak magpa-tattoo kaso some of my friends said na baka makaapekto sa work like kung balak kong mag abroad, plus me kapitbahay kami na me tattoo, then nag apply ng local work, after ng physical exam nakita yung tattoo, then di na sya tinanggap. My question is: di ba naka apekto yung mga tattoo nyo in one way or another sa work or job hunting nyo? Thanks.
Never affected me and I've worked in some of the most conservative companies here and abroad.
As long as professionally done *** tat mo at magandang tignan, hindi siguro makakasagabal sa career mo. Pero kung mukhang gawang bilibid eh siguradong sisipain ka, hindi lang sa trabaho pati ng asawa mo hehehe.
Hahaha, nakakadala nga ang Miami Ink na yan.
I like looking at different tattoo designs.
i have 2 tattoos, one on the right hip and one on the left. the right one is an angel and the other one's a dragon encircling a lotus flower. (refer to avatar)
i got mine from oman daluz. he's great! i think he used to hold a position in PhilTaG before, i just can't remember which...
he holds shop in recto, right beside Ever Gotesco. You can check out his friendster account (where his designs are showcased) by typing inkcentric on the search field. pero ngayon nagpunta siyang australia, ang balik niya ay sa november. cool silang lahat sa shop
i don't regret having mine. at naenvision ko na ang sarili kong kulu-kulubot na at kapiling pa rin ang aking angel at dragon.
i'm planning to get another one, a dragon/tiger yin yang. pero saka na, after two years siguro
