I am well versed in many styles from simple and bold designs to very intricate and fine detail. No tattoo is too big or too small. It gives me great joy to be able to take my clients’ ideas and translate them into tattoo-able images. My goal is to create bold, long-lasting tattoos that will continue to look good for a lifetime. Many of the emerging trends in this industry look incredible when first applied, but unfortunately, do not age well. Not every style of tattoo is going to be a viable option for longevity, so my approach focuses on techniques that I feel confident will maintain clarity. Many of the technical aspects of tattooing are ever-changing thanks to advancements in pigments and machine technology. Although, at the root of the art-form, there are some basic rules that remain unaffected.
My portfolio reflects my personal preference of the styles I enjoy tattooing. If you like my work, please feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I am currently working out of Golden Age Tattoo in Austin, TX. If you would like to see more of what I do, my Instagram handle is “darrylhanna”. Thank you for looking. -Darryl
|1. Remove wrap (keep on for at least 1 hour after tattoo).|
|2. Wash with warm water and antibacterial* soap, rinse, press dry, air-dry 30 minutes.Repeat this at least twice a day until healed.|
|3. Use ointment* OR re-wrap tattoo with fresh plastic wrap and tape as needed. (only re-wrap in very dirty environments or in prolonged direct contact with fabric or clothing) Ointment will act as an interface with clothing but has obvious limitations.|
|4. Use ointment during first 3 days, when skin becomes dry, switch to moisturizer* until fully healed.|
*antibacterial soap with no scent, such as Dial or Softsoap
*ointment such as Aquaphor or A&D (use sparingly)
—be aware that A&D contains Lanolin, a dirivative of wool, which can cause allergic reaction if you are allergic to wool.
*moisturizers that are unscented, such as Lubriderm
Be aware: Moisture rash can occur due to too much time under plastic wrap or not changing wrap often enough. As your tattoo leaks more fluid, change wrap more frequently. Due to the lack of evaporation, keep the area very clean and dry.
Common symptoms of infection:
Plasma and ink seeping from new tattoos is common and a part of the natural healing process.
Please take a week of close care and ensure your tattoo looks and feels good for the rest of your life.
