Chicks giving me crap

Recommended Posts

@TigerBlue77 The sleeve looks rad, congrats on finishing it! I know it's really hard to take pictures of your own tattoos, but if I may suggest leaving the filters and effects for instagram, we'd be able to see the actual artistry in your tattoos much better. Looks awesome though, how long did it take from start to finish?

@JonNimrod How do you know? ;)

I think it looks wonderful. The clover may not add to the rest of the work, but it doesn't take away from it either, so if it's sentimental in the least bit I'd say it's definitely a good idea to keep it.

Just to reiterate what a few have already said, it's on you and no one else. If you want to keep it, then keep it. If your partner is giving you shit for it and can't just accept that it's your decision and not her's, then perhaps there are larger issues at hand.

I kind of like the idea of one small, unrelated piece in the midst of a themed sleeve. It gives it more character and uniqueness. :)

And if you like it, you should keep it. It's on your body, not hers.

If the clover means something to you then you should keep it. If you think it needs to be covered, cover it. You're the one who lives with it day in and day out.

like everyone else said, cover it if you want to. not because your chick told you to.

it may look lame, but if it has sentimental value., keep it. or rework it.

its well place in there. i wouldnt have noticed it.

I have some near-twenty year old ink I was considering getting reworked. Then I watched a show on Velocity about these guys who totally rework the innards of hot rods but clear coat over the faded paint to preserve the mojo.

"It'll only be original once", they said.

So I slapped some Aquaphor on those old tats, looked at them in the mirror, and smiled, remembering every moment that led up to those early decisions.

"They'll only be original once."

I vote on keeping it, it gives a little cherry on top of your other tats. My girl said that she liked my koi on forearm, but she was always judging me on the choice of colours. I didnt care, because it is MY body, not hers, and that is my choice not anybodys else.
