Hi, buckeyen8ive from SoCal here.

I've been lurking for a while now and decided to join

to get some advice on a new tattoo.

I look forward to all of your feedback.

Thanks,

@ deadsp0t - I'm thinking of getting a traditional flash tiger done on my right rear tricep, but not sure if I should leave it alone or have my artist give it some custom touches of my own.

It's the one at the top -

Are you going to the tattooer who painted it? That design looks awesome to me as it is, I'm sure he will be stoked to tattoo it.

Yeah, I'd be going to the guy who designed it.

Is it common to have a piece of flash done as is?

I'm relatively new to this.

I see a lot of the same classic traditional designs like anchors, skulls, etc

and always figured some kind of personalized customization was done.

The artist may want to tweak it based on location but I idk, I'm not a tattooer. If he/she wants to change it it would likely be for good reason. A tattooers exp and advice is part of what you pay for, way more often then not it's best to take said advice.

That's great looking flash. I'd be happy with it as is, especially if it is painted by the person you are getting tattooed by. Who painted these?

    • 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.
