Yeah, Hogrider is right. Just enjoy your tattoo. Quit staring at it with a microscope. You will hate it more if you have the artist start futzing with it.
I have NEVER looked at any of my many, many tattoos with such scrutiny. It is an art form, FFS. Enjoy your art. Stop obsessing.
Thank you for your honesty, nothing harsh about it- and I honestly needed that. And to her it from someone not in my circle, is good. So thank you - like I said, I just need to chill out. I have other ink and never reacted like this, I just need to sit back and appreciate it AND be patient (definitely NOT a strong area for me).
Thanks again for your reply, I appreciate it.
If I was the artist I'd tell you to take a hike. "Fixing" tattoos makes them worse more often than better in my experience. The tattoo isn't even healed and you're complaining about it. Rushing to "fix" something is a recipe for disaster. I can't tell you how many times I was getting tattooed and someone came in with some shitty glob of ink on their body crying about how they hated their tattoo so they ran out and got a coverup and now it's even worse. You've basically got a lot of lines. They can't move them, they can only tattoo over them.
My honest recommendation is "Don't get any more tattoos." Tattooing is an art, not a science. There is no such thing as a perfect tattoo.
Your expectations are very unrealistic, in my humble opinion anyway.
Sorry to be so harsh, but I think you need a wake up call.
