"The ink lasts depending on the artists skill and your skin. If he barely scratches the surface, black will be green soon."

No. Just...no.

Wrong ink will turn green, right kind of an ink just fades over time, I did my first 7 years back, it's fading a little bit but if done with right ink it won't turn green (maybe in 30-40 years but in that time you should have re-done it anyway)

Where do you people get that nonsense that black ink turns to green? Either find yourself a new "shop" or tell em' to use right ink.

I'm going to check out another one in a couple of days anyway, I can ask which ink they are using but as some said already it also depends on the artists not just the ink.

Draconian, those guys you linked seem to know what they're doing. If you check their Scars photo album you can take a look at their health measures. Everything seems legit.

Yeah, I just looked too. The guy is bagging his tattoo machine which some artists even in the US don't do. I think you'd be ok there.

Yup, I actually went to the shop and saw someone getting tattooed whilst I was there, which is how I got the facebook profile. You can never be too safe though :p ( Call me paranoid, but hey...).

Now all I have to do is finish my design and book an appointment for saturday!

Thanks again all! Tattoo FAQs at a tech forum :p

Damn the "fill" Part hurts... My SO got it near the ribs, which supposedly hurts twice as more than the arm and when I was holding her hand, well... I could tell it hurt more than mine! We definitely want to get more ink now!
