So, it looks like no one's been here for a loooong time, but for anyone who still uses this, I've got a question. Do you know if there are any places in Calgary who do UV tattoos? I'm a theatre actor and therefore don't have the luxury of having a tattoo somewhere that could be visible, and considering the very real chance of a nude (or at least scantly-clothed) scene at some point in my career, I'm looking towards getting a blacklight tattoo rather than a visible one. So, anyone know of a place? Preferably with experience, but I can't really afford to be picky in a place where, technically, this type of tattoo isn't even legal. If it comes down to it, I may travel south to get it done, but I'd really like to do this close to home. I'd appreciate any help at all! :)

Recommendations for/against? How's it heal? Big chances of rejection cuz of it being a surface piercing?

Just had the idea float into my head today so I'm wondering about the implications.

Thanks :)

How do you pronounce daith, as in the ear piercing? I want to go get it done tomorrow, but my pride won't allow me to mispronounce it and it's not in dictionary.com or the Webster's online one :(

I'm assuming either like "death" or rhyming with "wraith"...

Thanks for yr wisdom! :D

how much do you guys usually tip your tattoos and piercers? how do you work it out? percentage? x amount per hour?

Hi! I'm new to Calgary and would like some input on where to go for tattoos! I'm looking for soem linework, a friend wants a flag and I may be interested in a more involved piece if I can find the right artist.

I'd love to hear your experiences, and if you know of anyone local or not local on the level of Nick Baxter, please link me.

Thanks!!!

What's the pain level like? Is it less flattering if one has a little, err, padding there?

I've wanted something musical for awhile and the idea just popped into my head of a trail of musical notes or a line from a score. I'm just wondering what I might be in for. Also, if some miracle happens and I actually manage to tone up around there, would the tat end up looking horrible?

I want something that's generally covered by clothes, I've got a lot on my back already, and I was thinking about left side-heart-level-etc. as the reasoning behind that placement.

Thx :)

...touch-up & cover-ups? I have a kinda bleh tattoo that I'd like some work done to to perk it up, plus a mirror image of it on the other side of my chest... where (and whom) should I go to? Also, does anyone in the city do UV ink tattoos? Thanks in advance!

I'm looking for a piercer in the NW. The person I used to go to no longer works there :(
Suggestions please?
Thanks in advance!

Hey :) stretching virgin here contemplating going on that path. I don't want anything garishly large, but big enough to fit a reasonable size tunnel that I could put a ring through if I saw fit. Maybe a 6 or 4 gauge. Was looking at this for inspiration.

I am looking for:
- experiences
- pain factor
- aftercare
- cost (does stretching cost = piercing cost?)
- does this look okay on girls or is it a pretty masculine thing to do? I want to look more like a unique girl of 28 than a ... girl who wears comfortable shoes, if'n ya catch my drift.
- preference: piercing vs. stretching - which do you like better on yourself, which do you find more aesthetically pleasing, and so forth
- anything else you might want to mention

Shop recommendations are not necessary :) Keith at Tribal Expressions is mah man already :P

Thanks!
