never-going-home asked: hi there,
the "we're all mad here" tattoo is mine, and credit would be appreciated.
I’ve edited the post now so it’s crediting you, thanks for letting me know!
(also your tattoo is lovely)
salmonsalmonsalmon asked: I was wondering if you could help me out.. I am thinking about getting a tattoo on the back of my knee.. I have gotten one on my hip, but Im worried about the pain level and healing for this area.Do you know about how painful it is or anything about the aftercare?
I’m afraid I’m not a tattoo expert but with all of mine I was told to use bepathem. I’m going to assume your artist will recommend something (if not, then definitely ask). Unfortunately I’m also going to guess that the back of the knee will be pretty sore and you’ll also have to be careful about stretching the skin. Part of my side tattoo is on the crease by my hip when I sit and it didn’t heal correctly (one day I’ll bother to get it touched up) - so I’d be pretty careful about exercising.
Otherwise I’d highly recommend talking to your artist about your worries before letting the ink commense!
(Also I’m not sure how long any of these submissions have been here so if it was a long time ago - do submit a picture of your new ink!)
Today is my 18th birthday so I decided to get my first tattoo. <3 Meaning behind it:G for my dad (Gebhard). I for my sister (Isabella). V for me (Victoria). and E for my mom (Eva).

I’ve always loved traditional tattoos, and I wanted something to remind me that no matter how tough a situation may be, there is always hope and always a better outcome in the end.
