As soon as the top scabby layer comes off, it'll probably look hazy. That's when it really gets itchy. I'll usually warm up some aquaphor or Neosporin in the microwave for a few seconds so it's more oily than thick, then rub it on with my palm so I don't use my nails. It'll usually make it not itch for a couple of hours, then do it again.

He didn't give you bad advice on just washing it with antibacterial soap. An antibacterial lotion line bacitracin or A&D is to: 1) help it heal slower. When it heals slower, it's less likely to scar. And 2) it's antibacterial, so it helps keep it from getting infected.

Oh, and in colored tattoos, the lining work is almost always black.

I got mine about 6 months ago, it's my family crest. Fortis Et Fidus is Latin for "Brave and Loyal".


I'm planning on getting another soon, I'm thinking about the outline of Lake Superior on my other shoulder.

Yeah, we talked about that, but decided against it, he just used darker shades of color for the outline. He did say at the beginning that usually the outline is black, but I didn't want that. The outline of the rock is dark purple. And the letters on the rock also outlined in dark purple. Darker green and purple for all the outlines.

Dang, now I am thinking about this thing going down my arm, across by shoulder to my back then down the other arm. A garden, each part blending into the next and each part with a meaning. Like maybe the flower and rock can lead to a field of little white flowers. Maybe even a dirt path. Eyes can walk along the garden and see what's there. Each little white flower representing positive ideas. The growth of something good and positive, then keep following the path to see what else is there. So I can look and see where I have been, give me a better idea of where I'm going. My best friend says I am going through a mid-life crisis, maybe so, but worse things I can do than get tatted. I already have many ugly scars on my body, so not like I'm ruining a beautiful piece.

I'm a firm believe that if you don't have a nice body, at least have pictures to look at. That's why I have them from every angle!

There was just too many times when I was young and stupid(last incident 5 years ago) and didn't go to the hospital for stitches or treatment right away. Yeah, I'd rather look in the mirror and see pretty pictures, instead of ugly scars. At least a distraction. When I was younger, I happened to exit a vehicle that was going 55 MPH down the highway, wasn't pretty. Slid, until I finally realized I must roll towards the grass. And scars from that "accident" are just some of the many I have.

Yea, I hear you! I was sad about my last one, they had to cut across one of my tats to reattach ligaments in my arm and move the nerves.

Guess I should be old enough to know ,arms don't bend backwards! *idiot*
