Hello from MD

Recommended Posts

New to the forum and tattoos. Wanted to say "Hi". Name is. Bill, and I live in MD. I am in the process of getting my first tattoo and can't wait for it to get done. First session was 7.5 hours and probably got about 10 more to go.

I have 10 hours left. Now here is my problem. I was told it would be X number for the whole thing, but because they under estimated how long it would take, they are gonna charge me double what I was told it would be for the tattoo. Kinda pissed. I have a baby on the way in a couple months and do not have any additional funds available.

Edit: this is from the owner of the shop, not the artist that is doing my work. He originally told me that it was gonna take him long than he expected and would not charge me any more money.

^^^ Then wait until you can afford it. Tattoos cost what they cost. We don't talk about money here on this forum because it's (1) not very polite and (2) none of our/your business.

Sorry. I took out the price.

Is it normal to be told a flat price, then come back for another session and they charge you more because they under estimated the time it would take? No being snide, I honestly don't know if this is normal practice or not.

    • 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.
