    I've had this happen once, not hugely blown out but most of the lines went a bit fuzzy. Since I had other work from that artist where the lines were perfect, I was happy to let them fix it up (they made those lines that were blown out a bit thicker, and the rest became unnoticeable when it got shaded). If it's someone you haven't got other work from/don't totally trust, you could look into getting someone else to fix it?

    (edit to add)
    Another session tomorrow, it's been a while since I've posted in this thread and a fair bit of progress has been made on my arm, will try and get a few photos snapped tomorrow.

    @embers...yeah man. it may seem bad in your eyes at the moment, but it might be mendable. Of course, I can't see it.

    @Reyeslv, just have her pick something off the wall! they don't draw until you show up to your appointment anyhow.

    I tried to tell her there are many options that are way better and that will last the test of time.....

    Whoof to that barcode idea. Tell her to just pick something off of the million sheets of flash that adorn the walls there. She'll be infinitely more happy with that than a barcode.

    try to convince her that all barcode tattoos eventually blur into Black Flag logos, so she should go with something else. mind you, if she's stoked on Black Flag, that may just make it sound like a better idea...

    She could just get a Minor Threat tattoo and get it covered up when she turns 21.

    Ugh, a barcode?! Hopefully everyone else getting excited about their awesome tattoos will help change her mind. I've seen people show up with bad ideas and then end up getting something completely different and awesome. Then again some people are just too stuck on their idea of they think they want. This is why i'm glad I waited until I was 22 to start getting tattooed or I would have some stupid shit on my body.

    I'm super Jealous! and can't wait to see what you get!

    How do you put your style into a bar code? Isn't the idea in theory that it has to be done in a way that you could scan it? Yeah I can't speak for Smith Street, but I think if someone came in to the shop, we would do it, but it would be expensive and not guaranteed to scan and yeah I would do everything I could to talk them out of it. But if that's what she really wants then more power to her.
