About to get tattooed on my arm, just noticed I have fresh scratches there by my cat.

This might be a silly question but where I'm about to get tattooed, (in 5 days) my cat has scratched me. It's not deep or anything. Can the tattooist still go ahead and tattoo over the scratch marks? Here's a photo:

purple circle, scratch that has already scabbed up.

red circle fresh ones but they're not deep at all. a bit raised and red.

I would send that to the shop and ask the tattooer. I would be surprised if it was a problem, given how superficial they look, but the guy or gal doing the work would know best.

    • 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.
