Need tat and fill advice please

Recommended Posts

I have this tat on my right inner forearm (first photo below, tribal dragon). I want to get a new tat on the same forearm, opposite side i.e. outer right forearm. So...

1. Can the surreal angel vibe I want work with the dragon tat (see angel images below)? I imagine the side fills between the tats would have to be really good...

2. If you think it can work, what kind of fill will work on the sides? Maybe some sort of extension of the wings from the winged angel image...?

3. If you don't think it can work, what do you think can work? I prefer a more minimal look unless something really grabs me.

i think the images work fine together, but it depends on what you're going for. rather than just having two tattoos and figuring out how to connect them, think of your entire arm.
Ya sorry I should have given more info. I have given the arm lots of thought. I'm going with a similar vibe to the angels. I already have the tat for my upper right arm but I wanna wait a bit before I do it.

The dragon was my first tat, but I don't want a tribal theme. So I was wondering if getting one of those angels on the other side of the dragon, and then filling the side spaces will work.

Research tattoo artists, find someone whose work you love...then bring your ideas in (or e-mail them). The artist will be able to help you make it all make sense together.
Thanks. I've contacted my tat artist who did my other tats. Looking forward to see what he comes up with. Thanks for the wise words here :)

    • 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.
