Hello from canada, need opinions on new tatoo

Recommended Posts

hello from vancouver, I have been lurking for the last few days and decided I should make an intro post. At 29 I decided to get my first tattoo of my dog about 2 weeks ago. Healing part was ok except for one night while sleeping I subconsciously decided it was a good idea to scratch the living hell out my itchy arm :( In the moment the size looked good but now it feels abit small on my big arms (but on the bright side, room for more ink on that arm). Here it is: French Bulldog by Karl Marks

I would love some opinions on my next tattoo on my other arm (3/4 sleeve)

For years I always wanted a tattoo of the monkey king sun wukong but didn't end up doing it various reasons until I saw a tattoo by Adam Sky and I was floored, it was everything I envisioned and more.

Turns out he is available and I will be flying down for a consultation + first sitting in about a month. I know getting the same design done is a nono so my question is what do you guys think I should do in terms of design. Ideally i would love to have the monkey king and foo dog.

Currently these are the reference materials I will be bringing to the consultation

Monkey king reference material

As for my big arms, should I add in an oni mask inner bicep or would that clash since japanese vs chinese styles

    • 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.
