    Personally, I’d wait. But I also get hella paranoid about tattoo care so I dunno if I’m a proper gauge. I still haven’t gone back to the gym and it’s been just over a week since I got mine. I really need to work out tho lol.

    Also, made an appointment for mid September to finish my piece. Stoked!

    I actually asked the lady at the place I would go today and she said as long as I get it by the end of this week it should be fine, so I have to decide if I want to make an appointment for this Friday or not. I'm actually getting pretty nervous... is that normal or is it a bad sign? lol

    Perfectly normal! It's a permanemt decision and it can hurt like hell depending on what you're getting. Just got to focus on the fact that once it's done it's done.

    I got my first tattoo in January. I didn't feel nervous at all until the day of. I felt a rush of panic wash over me as we were walking towards the shop. I legit wanted to cancel lol. But once it got going I felt a lot better and now I'm sooooo happy I got it and I want more asap haha. I think it's normal.

    So... I’m wimping out for now. Just for now though. I figured there was no real point in cutting it so close to my trip, plus I didn’t really like the vibes of the place I went into (the lady who would be doing it for me was actually pretty rude lol) so I might try to find another place.

    Basically, if I’m on vacation wishing I had gotten it done, I’ll know that I really want it lol

    Not a bad tactic tbh. You should feel 100% comfortable with your artist

    It is indeed! All my tattoos are music based for the most part. The other two are in relation to Frightened Rabbit's Scott Hutchison. Also have a Smith's one as well as a Death Cab one.

    Sandierm is a game changer but is it going to feel this awkward the entire time or should I get used to it? Might be the location too.

    I'll change this eventually Prestigious

    Just made an appointment to do my elbow in early September.

    tangentially tattoo related: really rad mini-doc on Stephanie Boyce who has kind of made a name for herself in the traditional tattoo community here in NYC. she hangs out at some of the shops and does her own interpretation of classic designs, some people have even gotten them tattooed. Mark Cross, owner of Rose Tattoo in Williamsburg, befriended her a while ago and has given her a space to work as well as the occasional gallery show at his art space down the street from the shop. really, really heartwarming.
