Is it possible to repair or have to cover it up?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

A noob friend of mine made this tattoo - penrose triangle https://imgur.com/a/6Ekit -, but it ended up with some imperfections, and I don't really want a tattoo in this state.

I asked a tattoo artist and he said that I should cover it up, but I want more opinons. What do you guys think? Is possible to repair like with another color as outline?

Thanks.

I am not a tattooist - but this topic has been discussed on the forum in the past - but for your guidance there are a couple of (or a few?) tattooists who are experimenting with putting white *on top* of black - so if you were nearby to one of them they would 1st need to put MORE black into your space. The other aspect of white ink is that with some people it doesn't stay white - it turns yellow or light brown. No way to predict that.

yeah basically you will need something blackAF and bigAF if you are expecting to cover the triangle mess completely.

I don't see a minor touchup correcting the roughness of your triangle tattoo.

other options are live with it or laser.

or black out that section of your arm and fade into your abstract / optical illusion idea

I'd either:

A. keep the tattoo and have it as a reminder of that time in your life and hopefully your buddy becomes an awesome artist, and you'll always be there to humble him.

B. Go full blackout on that area, and do a scarification method where you want a different color. Depending on how your skin scars, it would range from reddish to skin tone. there are some awesome scarification artists out there.

I had a great idea! I'll make it all black triangle, then make the penrose triangle on the other side, and then add more 2 triangles inverted on each side aroudn the arm. 

 

Sierpinski triangle - it's a triangle supposedly that has 1,3 spatial dimentions

And the middle one here - which is a 4 dimensional tetrahedron :D

    • I am wanting a colorful big lotus on my shoulder (will be my first tattoo), and am finding artists that I like although their work is almost all in black. Is an artist who is talented in black not necessarily skilled with color?   Also, I am in Colorado and would definitely appreciate artist recommendations 
    • I did reply to this but for some reason it didn’t work.... so excuse me if for some reason I’ve posted this story twice.    a similar thing happened to me, but with my grandad. He unfortunately had a stroke and lost his marbles - previously a very proud man (an architect) and wasn’t overly fond of tattoos however.. I got a fairy tattooed on my shoulder about 10 years ago representing my grandparents because I went fairy hunting with them as a young child and it was such a special, magical time in my childhood that I wanted to keep a reminder.. anyhow. After he had his first stroke (unfortunately he had numerous) I showed him, he had tears in his eyes and stroked her gently and told me how beautiful she was. It really upset me but in a good way, because I knew at that moment it meant something to him too.    I also have “tomorrow’s another day” tattooed on my collarbone because it’s a saying my dad told me growing up (he suffered with depression, as did I growing up) so it was a constant reminder to try and remember that although today may be shit... tomorrow will hopefully be better. 
    • @oboogie that’s adorable. I want an old lady to touch my arm haha @Hollie yeah that seems to be the general consensus- doesn’t matter what people think as long as yr good with it. I think I was just seeking affirmation that it wasn’t a ‘bad tattoo’ / ‘done poorly.’ Ya know that pesky self doubt that a creeps around the brain!
