Getting a tattoo fixed. looking for opinions.

Recommended Posts

I have a dragon on the back of my forearm that I want to have fixed. The issue is that the tattoo was designed as a color piece but the guy that did my tattoo thought it could pull off doing it just with black... he was wrong.


sorry for the poor picture, its in a hard spot to take a picture.

I want to add color to it, the guy that has done my last few tattoos is great at color stuff.




So my question is what color/colors would you guys go with? Obviously I will go with what the artist thinks will look good but I want to have ideas in case he asks.

Also based on your other posts you are near Detroit Michigan correct? I believe there is a tattoo convention happening in that area this weekend, I would check that out if you want to try to get some work from artists like Nick Colella or Chad Koeplinger.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
