"I know this is hard but you need to try to get out of your head. It's a good tattoo!" what is hard?
Thanks for your comments.. they do help me, maybe i'm just overreacting right? it's just that im so picky .. and also i'm very obsessive... i have read that a lot of people go trough this after a tattoo.. cause it's a big commitment..
Roses have leaves. I have about a dozen different roses on my body and they all have leaves. Guarantee you that a rose tattoo without leaves would look unfinished.
Don't worry about what it looks like when you raise your arm. Seriously, a tattoo is on a living, bendy, moving part of your body.
And my motto, go big or go home. It's a great size and you can't tell that it is a coverup which is the primary thing. Your artist was right.
I know this is hard but you need to try to get out of your head. It's a good tattoo!
well the leaves .. i can't stop thinking "maybe it would look a lot better wiithout them" and also when i raised my arm the rose looks kinda deformed ... and i think it's so big..the tattoo artist said it would had to be this size cause it's a cover up.. but i keep thinking that maybe that wasnt the true.. i don't know....
Hello, I'm obviously new here, & I've heard a lot of great things about this forum so I figured I'd give it a shot.
My main reason for joining is because I am in desperate need of advice for a cover-up of the tat I got when I turned 18.
As you can see it's fantastic. On top of it being a bright green square its also slightly crooked (The way I'm standing trying to take the pic myself makes it look a lot worse)
I've got a rib cage piece of black & grey roses and a compass, so I'd like to stay away from more roses. Ideally i'd like to use as little color as possible as well, but I'm open to whatever needs to be done to save me from the "Yea I think your tractor's sexy" comments every time I go to the beach.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
We found LST and now get good tattoos but what before? We must of got some bad tattoos on the way....
Here we can post our bad tattoos and the story behind them
I'll start with one of mine, done when I was 16 some 22 years ago, even when new people asked what it was, it's a bat moon and 3 stars by the way...!
I don't know about you guys, but I sometimes struggle to find
a Christian themed tattoo that really excites me, and I'm a bona fide
Don't get me wrong, Rock of Ages is cool and all, but other than that
crosses and praying hands don't really excite me.
Do you guys have or know of any cool Christian Themed tattoos?
Note to the moderators, this is my leg, tattoo removal being done on me, not a client / stranger / randoms.
Back in 1997 I started what I hoped would be an epic leg sleeve - and ended up falling out of love with it about a year or two later. I also added to the back, by a different artist, a totally random piece to what you see here and what's on the side. By 1999 I had zero intention of actually finishing it and started focusing more on work, a career and things like that. Since then I've had several other tattoos that I actually like, but have always dealt with what's that? whenever I wear shorts. Thus, I started having them removed a while ago. Since this piece was mostly grey wash, and put in rather lightly, I've had some really great results after a single treatment. Thursday night I sat through a 2nd treatment on this piece and had 1st treatments on the right side of my leg and a piece on the back.
Healing is going well already and hopefully by the second week of January I can get another treatment.
