New and seeking advice

Hey everyone I'm from Australia. A bit about me.. I'm 21, I'm currently studying at university and I love tattoo art. I don't know a lot about tattoos so I cannot give out an tips, suggestions or information but I was hoping you guys could help me out.

I got my first tattoo on my foot on my 18th birthday down at my local tattoo shop down in the country and I absolutely love it. In fact I loved it so much I fell in love with tattoo and within a year and a half I was booked in to get my second tattoo on my upper thigh at the same place but with a different artist. I took in my reference picture and a local artist drew it up and I thought it was great. Sadly after it was finished it was nothing like the picture but I still loved it regardless. However, I'm now at the stage where I don't like how unprofessional it looked and am looking to cover it up. So I have turned to the internet to see if you guys can give me some advice on the cover up and if the photos I have chosen will work.

I have attached my reference photo, my actual tattoo and what I was hoping to cover it with. Thanks guys.

Welcome! Where abouts in Australia are you? We have some folks here who can give some advice on great shops - hopefully some close to your location. The girl/wolf would make an awesome tattoo - the other one might not be as readable as a tattoo because it is so stylized - however - ...

Get a great artist and take in all your references and they can tell you what would and wouldn't work the best. Good luck!

I'm in Sydney and i think I'm leaning towards to wolf girl design but i want to change the wolf to a tiger. If someone could give me the names of some artists that specialise in the type of style of the tattoos i want to cover this one with and who know about covering existsing tattoos that would be amazing.

Also, to change the wolf to a tiger who should i see about drawing up the new tattoo?

I can't speak towards many artists in AUS, but will say that any lady head/animal combo is in the realm of Valarie Vargas from the UK. She tends to travel a lot, so it may be worth the wait to catch her at a convention in Australia (if she attends).
