Need some creatvive peoples opinions on my tattoo

Recommended Posts

So I got a tattoo I'm not happy with at all and am looking to hopefully save it. I gave the artist 5-6 reference pictures of similar tattoos I liked and trusted his abilities because he has put out some really nice work. In the end I wasn't happy with it so didn't bother going back for touchups because I wasn't sure if I wanted to start removing or what. I don't care how much of my arm needs to get used I just want it to not look like a splotchy blob of black. If anyone has any ideas what I can do to hopefully save my tattoo please let me know because I am stumped. Thanks for all input!

The picture quality is really bad, but I can say I like it a lot! I mean, it's well done and I like it.

The only thing that makes me feel weird is the black background around the tattoo... That's not nice, hahaha

I get the idea about a candle in a dark room, but, anyway, the black ugly background wasn't the best way to achieve it, hahaha

Now, the advices, what would I do:

I would make more tattoos around it, or just a full arm piece if you like the idea.

I mean , even if you don't like the candle (which I like so much and I think you should like it too!) if you just make a lot of tattoos around it, it will just be unnoticed.

You can use the black background to connect the tattoos

The best you can do is to go to a tattoo artist you love so much and you love all his/her tattoos so you will be sure the tattoos he/she is going to draw on you will be super perfect and loveable to you, and ask him/her what should he/she do about it.

Probably he/she is going to have a bunch of nice ideas and designs about what to do!

For example, he/she could transform the black background into smoke (just by expanding the background into it, that's easy)

An example:


And then connect some more tattoos over this smoke!

That's just an idea, but there are so many ones that your tattoo artist is going to think that you should just go and ask him...!

Thanks for the advice that's a great idea . Ya the black caught me off guard soon as he started but it was too late to stop lol. Gotta start brainstorming ideas for other tattoos that would compliment eachother. Thanks again!

Cant see the pic for some reason, but from what I remember when I saw it a couple of days ago -Guess you were looking for something like this ? 


Ya mine was a similar type idea. That one was done much better

I'm considering just blacking it out and going with a similar smokey type that was suggested earlier in the post, I might just go with a half sleeve but I don't want it all as dark so the forearm would have to be the blackest part

    • There's nothing wrong with it. Don't worry. Just enjoy it.
    • It's healing. It won't fully heal for 4 to 6 weeks. Just let it heal and don't smother it with anything.
    • Hi! So I got my first tattoo ten days ago. They are fine line tulips and they are so beautiful. The thing is, it's kinda getting darker, darkening the delicate the details of ir too. Is this normal? I always heard the tattoo Will go lighter as it heals but it's being the opposite for me. It has pretty much flaked off completely so i'm scared it might be the way this heals and thats it. Please help. Here are some pics The first is right after I got it and the second one is now.  Also something yo know I put the film to sleep for like 2 more nights after I got it which later I ask my artista and he Say I really shouldn't xD could this have some influencia on how it's looking now? Thanks for the help
