There is always a chance your tattoo will distort over time if you choose to get it in a place that has stretch marks. If your skin has stretch marks in an area, that probably means that your skin has stretched significantly in that certain spot. Which means if you put a tattoo there it will probably stretch/distort over time.
here are some areas of your body where a tattoo might distort over time.
side/back of thighs,
and your sides.
Great question. Let me start by saying Golden Age does produce quality work or I wouldn’t have recommended it. I’m not sure what your definition of perfect is, but in my mind there is no such artist. Tattooing is a handmade art. It’s an imperfect art. All handmade things have imperfections. Not to mention the canvas (your body) is also technically imperfect. I don’t have a tattoo on my body that is perfect. I’ve learned to love them for that. If you are expecting laser printer quality tattoos then you may be disappointed in any tattoo you get.
However, If you see beauty in these kinds of things, then only you can decide who is “no less than perfect” by looking at portfolios and different artists at different shops.
Just because a shop is reputable doesn’t mean you will automatically like every artist in that shop. Do your own homework. I can’t tell you who to get tattooed by. Some shops that I like in Austin include Golden Age, Gullycat, Perfection, Rock of Ages, Amillion, Affinity, All saints, Great wave, and Bijoux. It all just depends on what strikes your fancy. Good luck!

Thanks for the recommendation. I have seen Akira a long time ago. It’s awesome. I just recently stared getting into Comics/Graphic novels so maybe I will make my way to Manga at some point
Thank you grey face!
