Hello!

Hey guys,

My name is Dylan, I'm 21 and stationed in VA. I actually came across this thread when I was looking for ways to do a cover up for a tattoo I am highly disappointed of getting...I figured why not join in with others who may of had the same experience as me and maybe get advice for future tattoos? I am a tattoo fanatic, but I like to tattoo things that symbolize a significant change in my life or maybe a mile stone. It helps me remember my feelings for that moment. Along with the event altogether, since I have a horrible memory. The picture is actually the one I want to get fixed...its been lasered three times (painful!), so its been lightened some. I have went to four tattoo shops and they all have said the same thing or saying they can, but needed an idea. Which is what I am completely stumped on. In reference to my comment about it being significant event to my life that still remains, but maybe if any of the participants of this forum has any idea of what can even cover it, I can find something for it to symbolize in my life. Again I'm glad to be on the forum and hope to stay and communicate ideas or talk about past encounters with tattooing.

Thanks!

D Dub

Hey Dylan every tattoo you get doesn't have to be meaningful.Sometimes you just get tattooed because you like tattoos,regardless if there's a meaning or story behind the tattoo.

I think a koi,dragon,eagle,Panther,roses,would cover that up.I would make an appointment with an artist whose style you like and take it from there.

Thanks for all the advice guys! Yea its hard to stick with meaningful tattoos, but its just something I perfer. However, like I said, I'm just open to spontaneous ideas on just something would even cover the thing up! Ill try one of the local artists around here again. Since I have had it lasered a couple times since they have seen it maybe they can offer different advice on it now. Or they could just tell me to come back with pictures of what I would like. Sometimes I'm not sure if they understand that's the whole reason I'm coming to them, because I'm clueless.

A good tattooer might be reluctant to just put something/anything on you for obvious reasons. You might not be happy with the decision 6 months from now. Find at least an idea or image that rings true with you.

welcome to LST!

virginia has lots of great tattooers. Listen to advice here and you will be fine. You might need a laser session to give you more options but as said talk with a tattooer first and research and ask advice on tattooer you plan to work with

    • 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.
