Need a little help planning

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, Viggo here. Greetings from Greater Cleveland! Nice to be here.

Every time I have big changes in my life I like to get a tattoo to commemorate & remember the events. I recently finished my bachelors degree (only 10 years late), moved across the country, and started a new career, so it's time for a new tattoo. I'd like the "Finished my Bachelors" tattoo to fix the one I got when I started...

(Apologies for poor quality)

It was put on by little more than a scratcher in a tattoo shop in College-Town, IA. These are the constellations of my family's Zodiac signs, done in shitty black stars that aren't even consistent with each other.

I've been a huge fan of astrophotography since they launched Hubble when I was a boy, so I was thinking that the best way to fix this shitty tattoo is with a galaxy back piece which subtly incorporates my family's Zodiac signs & NASA photography...

Questions? Concerns? Scathing indictments?

Anybody know of any artists good with outer space within 3-4 hours of Cleveland?

space tattoos can make great cover-ups.

I can't vouch for who has experience or examples of space tattoos in your area, but you do have some awesome tattooists within easy reach of you, including at least:

Mitch Moses the drown town

Chad Lenjer https://www.instagram.com/challenjer/

Black Anvil in Fort Wayne black-anvil-tattoo

You'll probably get some more candidates from others on the forum here, too.

    • There's nothing to fix on that tattoo. It's still healing. Tattoos look weird when they are healing. A lot of people say to give it 6 weeks to heal and then judge, but I'd given it longer, at least three months. It shouldn't be shiny or bumpy then.  Secondly, a tattoo is not a sticker. No tattoo is perfect. Tattoos do not heal exactly the way they looked when they were first done. Skin is a living canvas and that means lines often spread or color migrates. It would be ridiculous to go back to your artist to get that "fixed." If you can't live with minor imperfections, then tattoos aren't for you. 
    • Tattoos in general fade with time. Trying to do anything to it while maintaining the original design is going to make a mess of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Sounds like you've already made up your mind. Honestly, if you don't point it out, 95% of people would never notice it.
