Hey everyone, newcomer here with a problem at hand. I need help guys!!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, My name's Edwin and I'm from Singapore. I came across this forum while looking for help for my new tattoo.

Story here is : I just got my second tattoo done yesterday and i realize after the session that the blade was not symmetrical.. In fact, it was crooked!!!!

I thought it was because of the way i position my arm but apparently it is not. It looks slanted at every possible angle. This is the first session for this piece, so only the outline is done. I'm going back in a month's time to do the shading and coloring. Is there any possible way to fix this? Both my tattoos were done by the same artist whom I have very high respect for. I think it was the way i positioned my arm when he was preparing for the procedure.

I would love to hear from the veterans here or artists on how I can fix this. This is stressing me out so much![/img

ok first i do think your tattoo is kinda cool


real thoughts coming here...

the application (with rough picture to judge mind you) looks rough

line weight issues?

poor design?

this dagger could and should be so much more - right?

anyway - just a client perspective here

i would learn to love it but i would also move along with my dollas for my next one

too harsh?

    • 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.
