How does one go about selling Tattoo Flash? I've been told many times that I should look into selling my art for tattoos. There are some web sites, but all seem to state that most shops don't get their flash from the net. Where then, do I go to sell my work?

I got a tattoo on my back about two years ago. In the past couple of months, I've found that spot to be itchier than the rest of my back. If I apply lotion, however, it's fine - it feels like the same kind of itchiness I get in the winter with dry skin. There isn't any swelling, and the itching isn't all that bothersome or frequent, so I don't think it's an allergy. Any suggestions for a) why this is occurring or b) other ways to treat it, since I can't reach it myself?

On Thursday I'm getting another tattoo, on the "outside" part of my arm. On Friday I'm going to a crowded concert. Do I risk damaging the tattoo if it gets sweaty and repeatedly bumped over the course of a few hours?

Calling all Catalogers! With the impending completion of my MLS, I want to get a spine label tattooed on my spine. However, after reading this thread
, the last thing I want to do is make a mistake in my self marking. I'd be laughed out of the ALA! [More Inside] [more inside]

Anybody know exactly what the teardrop tattoos that many gang members and rappers have signify? I heard once that they represent people you killed, or people you knew that died, or bullets you've taken, or something like that. Anyone know for sure which it is? For those that have no idea what i'm talking about, here are two pictures of rapper Baby: 1 2

I want to get a tattoo, could anyone give me some good suggestions on where to put it? (more inside)
It's like this. I want to get a round ying yang type design on my back. This would be very small, about three inches in diameter or smaller, likely. I'm a relatively small female. I've been thinking about getting it on my back, as nothing else seems like a good place. However, I can't decide where on my back, or even if I want to put it there. If I do get it on my back, I was thinking of adding a larger design of a dragon later, so I've been trying to think of something that won't look weird contrasted to the dragon. Any suggestions?
Oh, and I know to do all the research about the tattooing parlor, and to seriously think about whether it's a good idea to get a tattoo. I've been thinking about this for probably a year, and probably won't actually get it for a couple more anyway. [more inside]
