what you going for on the face? same sort of stuff/words? would be cool

Words, about 5mm-ish on forehead/sides so I can cover with hair if needed. The problem is now deciding which words

Great piece that, so striking and detailed, how many hours in? How was the healing on such big shaded areas?

I’ve been bluffing around getting my back done for years combo of being quite scared of the pain threshold I will have and limited time and money with having kids amongst other things.

Thanks for sharing the pics everyone and although tattooing the face maybe ain’t for me I do admire the balls of steel and complete commitment of those that do.

Cheers lads!

About 10 hours so far I think over 3 sittings, Nick works pretty fast

Healings been fine, I always leave it wrapped in the cling film the tattooist puts on overnight until the next morning. Most of the weeping/bleeding seems to have stopped by then before the air gets to it so a lot less heavy scabbing. Then just wash it, and let it dry heal after that.

Back of the hip area was worst place I've had tattooed, a lot worse than anywhere on stomach/chest I found Eek

Looks great Toby. The love handles where easily the worst area I've been tattood, felt more like I was being branded

Dry heal defo a good idea I’ve found. Love handles need slimming down before I get inked, too much surface area!

Nick Mayes is a great artist, must get something from him one day.
