While your fresh tattoo is still healing, try to avoid submerging it in water, including pools, jacuzzi, and even bathtubs – Technically, your tattoo is an open wound, so you could risk acquiring a bacterial infection if you’re not careful. Wear loose clothes so the fabric doesn’t touch your tattoo. Don’t sweat too much, since this could also cause irritation that can prolong the healing process.
31. What an incredible design, I can’t say enough good things about this cool wolf tattoo. You get the best of both worlds with the depiction of the real wolf on one side and the geometry shaping of the animal on the other. i love how the two are joined together. The detail on the real wolf side is perfect. If you want a unique look this is the one for you.
Sebastian from Chronic Ink Tattoos has noticed people becoming very interested in tattooing sacred geometry, which is full of symbolism and fascinating concepts. One example is the flower of life. This is a geometric shape made up of multiple overlapping circles of the same size. This ancient symbol can be traced back throughout history in different religions and cultures. It is said to contain the patterns of creation – the most sacred patterns of the universe, including all life and existence.
Geometry is associated with symmetry and harmony, and this is the reason why they have become a top choice among tattoo lovers as well as tattoo artists. Such tattoos not only abound in visual appeal, but also have a spiritual meaning and have often been as healing forces. It has been believed in ancient times, that placing at a particular position of the body, has a healing effect on the body and the spirit.
Immediately after laser treatment, a slightly elevated, white discoloration with or without the presence of punctuate bleeding is often observed. This white color change is thought to be the result of rapid, heat-formed steam or gas, causing dermal and epidermal vacuolization. Pinpoint bleeding represents vascular injury from photoacoustic waves created by the laser's interaction with tattoo pigment. Minimal edema and erythema of adjacent normal skin usually resolve within 24 hours. Subsequently, a crust appears over the entire tattoo, which sloughs off at approximately two weeks post-treatment. As noted above, some tattoo pigment may be found within this crust. Post-operative wound care consists of simple wound care and a non-occlusive dressing. Since the application of laser light is sterile there is no need for topical antibiotics. Moreover, topical antibiotic ointments can cause allergic reactions and should be avoided. Fading of the tattoo will be noted over the next eight weeks and re-treatment energy levels can be tailored depending on the clinical response observed.
“The customer service here is on point. So polite and friendly and professional. You can tell that they really care and are passionate about helping people with their crappy old tattoos and past mistakes. I had a treatment done and bought a package of treatments, so all I need to do now is show up each month. What the laser does to your tattoo instantly is amazing and has to be seen to be believed. The technology of laser tattoo removal is fascinating. Anyway, if you’re looking for tattoo removal, this is place to come.”
Generally speaking, geometric tattoos tend to draw from shapes and patterns in the natural world. Some symbols, like the ones above, are associated with deeper religious and cultural backgrounds. Among the basic shapes, circles can portray relationships and community, and square-based designs stand for stability. Combining or connecting them is a way to convey balance between the two. More intricate figures, such as a dodecahedron (three-dimensional shape with 12 plane faces) or icosahedron (with 20 plane faces) may show the juxtaposition of complexity and unity.
Your next treatment should be no sooner than 8 to 12 weeks.When you schedule an appointment with us, the laser immediately works its magic to break up the pigment. Thereafter your body is responsible for eliminating the ink. It does this as a natural process of metabolization and blood flow, but it needs 8 to 12 weeks to fully resolve targeted ink molecules.Each laser sessions breaks up only a certain amount of the tattoo, so you will need to return for successive treatments until the tattoo fully resolves.
“The space is really cute when you walk in the front door. It feels really relaxing and warm, not cold like a doctor’s office. Great decor and is very clean! All staff was really nice. Had my first treatment this week and can’t wait to see the end result! From signing in, the consultation, actually starting the process, and checking out everything was fast and smooth! I really appreciated how I wasn’t pressured into starting. It didn’t seem like the laser technician was trying to sell me on doing something.”

Sleeves are not easily covered unless you have a long sleeved shirt on. Some people choose to stop their sleeve before their watch so that people in the workforce can’t see it, even when they shake someone’s hand. Other people choose to extend the work past their wrists and onto their hands. It’s a personal preference and different for every individual.
Tattoo sleeves often look their best colorful. Whether you opt for traditional old school tattoos, mermaid or pin-updesigns, or an armful of colorful flowers , adding vibrant details to your tattoo sleeves can really really make them pop. When you select your designs, analyze the colors as well. There's nothing worse than despising orange on your skin only to sport a huge Tiger Lily later. Often overlooked, this step is important so pay attention. Your artist isn't going to analyze or know these things about you so think about them first and speak up.
I'm obsessed with my tattoo! Viet captured the design that was in my head so well, and it came out perfectly. This was my first tattoo, so I asked all kinds of questions about ink, sanitation, pain, etc. I'm that girl. Viet was super patient with me, let me know his awesome health code history (squeaky clean!), and answered all of my questions. His studio is a really clean, comfortable, stylish environment. My sister came with me and enjoyed herself watching The Avengers on his TV. Viet is an awesome guy who really knows how to take care of his clients. I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone! I couldn't be happier with my first tattoo or the experience of getting it!

Regardless, if you are going to start with a single tattoo, in any location, be sure to tell your artist that your eventual end goal is a full sleeve. “She or he can leave the piece in a way that it can be added to in time,” Gualteros says. “Basically, to get the best result for this, you should ask for flow.” (That’s tattoo-artist speak for “something that will flow nicely with other designs”.)
“I’m so happy I went to Eraser Clinic for my tattoo removal. The initial consultation was free and I appreciated their honesty in explaining and answering my millions of questions. The laser technician was so nice and made me feel very comfortable, I was even laughing at bit during my session. It did hurt, but it was over in like 10 seconds. I liked all of the reminder and follow-up calls/texts. Great value and a great experience.”
No one wants to be told how to feel about their tattoos ten, twenty, or fifty years down the road. The truth is you might hate your tattoos or you may love them. There's no way to tell if you'll have regrets. The best advice for tattoo sleeves is to stick with a theme and then invest time into your idea from start to finish. Consider your job, future, and your lifestyle. Avoid name tattoos when you can and, by all means, spend the time to find a few good artist(s)to create a pleasing display.
Artists and designers have come up with a great variety, as such tattoos are based absolutely on their creativity and capability. In fact, they present a great scope for them to explore their talent in tattoo designing as each design can be a completely different set of smaller designs. This means that there is a possibility for each and every sleeve design to be unique and different from the rest. Here are some common tattoo sleeves designs:
But that’s how it is! Sure, from a distance the sleeves make them look tough, but these guys know better than anyone how to ink up their arm in a strategic, meaningful way. Think of all the factors they've got to juggle: Choosing an artist can realize their vision, putting together the cash, sitting for all those hours, and then caring for the new tats so they don't need any touch ups—all over the course of weeks, months or years!

“Prior to Tareen Dermatology, I had experienced 4 tattoo removal sessions and found it to be incredibly painful. At Tareen, I received numbing agents and felt next to nothing during the procedure, experienced a 3 day pain free heal time (as opposed to the previous experience of VERY painful week long healing), and saw a noticeably decreased tattoo color- even on the hard to treat purple area that had previously seen almost no decrease in color.” – Carly H.
Surveys of tattoo removal patients were done in 1996 and 2006 and provided more insight. Of those polled, the patients who regretted their tattoos typically obtained their tattoos in their late teens or early twenties, and were evenly distributed by gender. Among those seeking removals, more than half reported that they "suffered embarrassment". A new job, problems with clothes, and a significant life event were also commonly cited as motivations. Tattoos that were once a symbol of inclusion in a group, such as a gang, can make it difficult to become employed. Tattoos that indicate a significant relationship such as a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend, can become problematic if the relationship ends. Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria, Marc Anthony and Denise Richards are some of the celebrities that have had this kind of tattoo removed.
If you've heard anything about laser removal, it's probably that it's insanely painful. I mean, if I had a nickel for every time I've heard, "Doesn't that hurt even more than actually getting the tattoos?" I'd be rich. (OK, I would have enough money to buy a medium iced coffee at Pret.) But while there's plenty of info on what to consider before getting a tattoo (and pages on pages of enticing inspo), there still isn't a whole lot of discussion surrounding the dark side of ink jobs: What happens if you grow to no longer love that little shooting star or random Latin phrase (ahem, see below)? I'm only about halfway through the process, but I've picked up plenty of tips along the way. So to do you all a solid, I put together a list of everything I've learned.
When you decide to go for a sleeve tattoo, there are many things you should consider. Do you want your entire arm covered in tattoos, or just half a quarter sleeve? Your tattoo artist can assist you in best deciding the placement and size of your sleeve tattoo. Certain people begin with a couple of randomly placed tattoos, and piece them together later with a bigger, more significant piece. If you’re only starting on the sleeve idea, then it’s a good thing to consider the final project, as well as the scale of your tattoo’s placement.
There is nothing wrong with looking for men’s tattoo ideas on the Internet or in magazines, but you will struggle to find an artist who will copy another’s work. Instead, make notes and gather ideas. Decide if you want a black and white tat or one filled with color. Take all of your ideas to your preferred tattoo artist and ask them to draw something for you. A great artist will be able to take your ideas and incorporate them into a fantastic piece.
Crosses have always been a very popular design to get for both males and females. They are most commonly known to represent people of a Christian faith, but can also just be for it’s aesthetic nature. They’re are also a lot of different variants of the cross and they all have different meanings and origins. Because of how simple a design they are they really can work anywhere on your body.
