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

    • Yeah, try and keep it covered - at 3 days old you don't want to get it dragging through someone else's dance floor sweat. 
    • so I had to jump in here,jail house tattoos rarely have color in them and they are rarely "american traditional", whether you like it or not,a well applied "american traditional" tattoo will outlast pretty much ANY other style around. and second,that reference of tribal you posted was not a quality tattoo at all IMO,it's a mess IMO,there is no good color saturation,not a good design, and the middle band is scratcher shit  for sure, and yes,it's outdated trendy crap IMO. it doesn't make me "low class" or a snob to critique a tattoo,no matter what style it is,it's just my opinion.
    • Once again just to further my point on the above. What we have here is a tribal freehand custom tattoo. It has made its way on to this topic of worst tattoos due to someone disliking the style .... It has however been executed professionally.  I find that irritating, we all have our own personal tastes, I for example hate American traditional, even though I think they look like jail house convict tattoos if one was done well I wouldn't describe it as shit. Tattoo snobbery is low class. Tribal gets a bad rep but people fail to realise that 20 years ago they were bad ass. Guys, your cool tatts that you have today are going to look shite in 20 years time. Just like this tribal they all have an expiry date were they become outdated, and you'll have guys twenty years younger shaking their heads and smirking at your crap work (in their opinion). But if the tattoo is done well then it will be their just their cocky young minds getting the best of them. Peace out....but hey it's only skin at the end of the day.
