Mireille Pelland

My Intro

Recommended Posts

My name is Mireille. I'm from Canada! I have a few tattoos already and have had bad experiences so nowadays it's extremely important to me to find the best tattoo artists for my specific needs. I believe every artist has one technique (amongst others) that they are really good at, so it's all about picking the right one for the work I want done! :)

The main reason why I joined this community is because I have a tattoo of my ex boyfriends name on my lower back (see pictures) and I need some ideas on what to cover it with. I've seen a couple tattoo artists and the ideas they've given me so far are:

- an owl

- flowers

- wings

None of these really stuck to me so I'm looking for new ideas!

Thanks!!

We were together for a long time and got it while we were together. He was also very controlling so I almost felt like I had to! :/ But when I got it I was like oh well if it doesn't work out it can be covered!

Fair enough and yes my ex told me, he didn't want me to get tattoos on knees/below the knee or any more work done. I don't think he appreciated the laughing and he was told where to go and shown the door. Him being tattooed himself, thought that was hypocritical of him, but never mind. Am better off without him. Started getting tattooed again this year (pics in my intro thread if you're curious) and am happy :)

Welcome! It would help an artist if you had some basic ideas, like the angel for them to work with. We can all throw out ideas, but it should be important to you. It sounds like you might not have been completely in control of the last one, so this is the perfect time for you to imagine something that would be *you*. Is there something you got out of the bad relationship, like feeling like you have strength or something? Look for an image that represents how you feel now. Anyway, just a thought and good luck!

I'd want more of an elegant/pretty angel

Here's some pics for ideas:

I also wanted a specific tree added on eventually into a back piece...I'm just unsure of how to mix in the angel, the tree and possibly flowers but yet still have it looking good and cover the last one! I'd love to maybe have the angel sitting by the tree or something...not too sure how to make it work!

Here's the tree

Personally, from an enthusiasts perspective, I reckon a back is made for 1 full scale tattoo.

I'd look beyond what you already have & think about a grand design, flowing over and onto your cheeks.

The tattoo you dislike so much can easily be covered this way.

I agree, talk it over with your tattooist about a full back piece, they'll be able to sort it out. Work in the tree and the angel, with existing one. I agree that the back is made for one piece, but have seen exciting pieces merged into one back piece which does look well. Depends on what you want and what your tattooist can visualise. (Just my 2d's worth)

    • 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.
