Being laughed out of a place is something that concerns me.


Nobody worth being tattooed by will laugh you out of their shop, specially not for that tattoo. There are waaaaay worse tattoos out there, trust me. I have worse tattoos than that!! I still think your best bet is to consult with the artist you'd want to cover it...

I'm sure that if anyone laughs, their laughter will be about the joke of the Darwin fish itself, not at you for getting it tattooed on your shoulder. No self-respecting artist would laugh someone out of their shop like that.

I can't  speak for everyone but I must say the fact he was laughed out of the shop is the best sign that they were not the right people to work with and unprofessional. Cover ups are common, people make mistakes, especially at 17. I have done many cover ups, and In my day have got old ugly tattoos from my youth lasered and covered. I think you should just keep searching and find the right shop and artist that is more receptive to your friends needs. Certainly your friend should not be made to feel stupid for his/her decision to get a cover up or the concept for that cover up. Now that said, an artist may direct the design in the best way to cover what is existing as well as what will work for a tattoo given its size and placement ect. cheers.

    • Hi everyone, my name is Joseph and Im a tattooaholic. one day when I was 23 I realized...."I can do whatever the F*&K I want" and got a tattoo. then another one. and another one. and now im two sleeves deep with a calve sleeve and a full leg sleeve on the way. along with several pieces on my back and chest. absolute addiction along with weight lifting. its helped ward of depression and releases serious endorphins, the effects of a recent tattoo last several months. glad to be part of a large tattoo community and looking forward to contributing to the site. cheers everyone!
    • I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it. Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!
