The truth about real artists and those after money.

Recommended Posts

I started getting tattoos when I was around 23 or so. I now have 18 lol. It really is an addiction. I came to this forum for advice my second tattoo, I got when I was really drunk at a shop next to a bar, go figure. I don't remember getting it that's how drunk I was. 10 years later I'm looking to cover it up. It's a hideous joker card, that was done very poorly. I told the artist I wanted an original joker playing card on my tricep but instead he drew this huge card that looks like the size of a small cereal box with a half ass joker in the middle of it. I've gone to 3 artists and they only have one conclusion two black roses to cover it up. I was just looking to see if anyone could think of any ideas on a cover up idea because of its odd shape.

    • 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.
