Fuk, I seem to be getting more and more of those tiny white pimples. I guess its a combination of the shaving and the tattoo. Any idea on how long it takes to go away? Im currently using lubriderm 100% fragrence and dye free because I have called 10 pharmacies and none have aquaphor in stock, gonna get it monday or tuesday depending on which location its coming from (ordered it from the closest pharmacy)

Also, I bought the pure and natural mild soap, I use that to wash my tattoo right? Can I still wash my hair with my regular shampoo? Or will it be bad to get it on the arm? And how long before I can normally wash my body using my regular body wash?


Soery for all the questions. Hope someone can answer. Thanks!

They are kept only behind the pharmacy counter. But for some reason they dont have them in stock and said that they have to order it in. Maybe its a richmond thing? Cause I called strictly tattoo and they said that in vancouver its easy to find it in stock

just checked the wholesaler we use at work, it's definitely available. should be kept over the counter, not behind.

also, i thought the tiny white pimples are due to over application of product? dry healed mine as per my artist.

rly? they told me to moisturize using lubriderm 4-5 times a day for the next 3 days. wtf. i'll dial it down to 2 - 3 times a day then. also, how much is too much? i use 2 pumps for my entire arm, perhaps i should try and use only 1 pump?

use enough to get it moisturized, and spread it out. It just needs to be moisturized, too much will not allow the skin to breathe thus u have zits

are you sure they didn't say, use lubriderm three days after? Cause I usually use aquaphor for three days then lubriderm for for the next 10 days or so.
And less is more jus enough to cover the tatted area.

We'll it comes to tattoo aftercare less is more. In fact it's better to not put on any lotion than to slobber your new tattoo with too much lotion.

I got zits before when putting on too much lotion while healing. Just stop with the lotion for a few days and the zits will go away

Make sure your artist knows this stuff, and they will design it properly for you

For fu dog statues, the males and females pretty much look the same, but the male always has his right paw on an embroidered ball. The female is on his right side, and has her left paw (the side closer to the male) on her cub.

But there are variations. I've seen fu dogs with the embroidered ball in their mouths.

I have no idea if the rules for tattoos are the same as the ones for statues and such. Like Skinnypup says, a good artist will know his/her stuff and will do it properly for you.

"When looking out of a building through the entrance to be guarded, looking in the same direction as the lions, the male is placed on the left and the female on the right. So when looking at the entrance from outside the building, facing the lions, the male lion with the ball is on the right, and the female with the cub is on the left."


in this case, your body being the "home" and placement on your chest facing forward

the male should be on the left and female to the right of the male


edit: if you wanted to be really technical. the male should be on the left chest and female on the right chest
