Tattoos Anyone ????
I got alot of tattoos on both m y arms and I am starting to get nervous on how they might look after surgery. I dont want them to sag or look distorted in anyway. They cost me alot of money and define how I feel through out my life and have very important meanings to me. I want to know if anyone had any issues with their tattoos looking different ? losing shape ? If so is there anything that maybe you did to keep them in original condition ? Weird question I know, but I have big arms and once I lose weight, I know they may change as well with less of my arm being there. Thanks anyone that can comment on this.
so I stayed with only 1 only tattoo I did in my early 20s. I may start having a few more when I reach goal ;P
somehow I feel the difference if you lose the weight after doing the tattoo will be more on your eyes than others', as you know how it should look... the change is probably not that dramatic.

The color has always been wonky because the scab rubbed off of it more than my leg/angle tattoos. Its not my fave, and I do not see it like I see my others, so I do not care that much about the color. What I really wanted there was too big (in terms of my sitting still for long enough for someone to be buzzing in a tickling place) and it covered up the home made one my girlfriend did when we ate too many quaaludes and tried to give me a birthday tattoo, once upon a time. :}
Turns out quaaludes do not make you any less ticklish and a bunch of blue dots on your hip only look like you put the clothes in the drawer still wet and got mold dots. Lesson learned!
But my legs/ankles? 22 years old, color is as lovely as ever (I sunblock them when I go out) and lines crisp as ever.
But if it had been in the middle of my belly, or on my lower buttcheeks? Yea, the distortion definitely would be happening.
5'5" and a size 0!!! Woohooo!
Thanks everyone for your input. I have on my upper shoulder blades and lower back which i am sure wont change to much. My ankle tat will be fine since my ankles are not big and fatty anyway. I think its just my arms since I am 3/4 sleeved on my left arm. I didnt do the back of my arms because I wanted to wait for the weight loss but the part of the arms that you see are covered. I just hope they hang in there and dont look to crazy. The ink looks great now, its really colorful and the artist did a great job. Dont want all that to fade thats all. Good luck to you all though. I will def be adding the rest of my sleeve and getting a few new places done after I reach my goal :)
