Another Mixing Styles Question

Recommended Posts

The picture attached is my half sleeve snow lion. I really, really want something and I'm ready for something new. I'm saving my right arm for a sleeve that will probably be many hours and $$ so i want to start doing things under this snow lion. I really like American traditional roses but I feel like the contrast of color and style would look strange right beneath this. Would it be better to do the rose somewhere else and keep with the japanese style smaller pieces below this? Or do I do the trad rose beneath this but no color? Pretty new to this...

Both Japanese traditional and American traditional are line based illustration drawings, so they blend well together, just keep it Black and gray, continue the background and they will work well off each other.

I love when people blend Japanese traditional and American traditional, the American style borrows a lot from Japanese imagery (like this Asian themed Sailor Jerry sheet). I think both styles work great together and a black and gray rose would work fine.

    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
    • it looks fine, let it heal for 4 to 6 weeks ,remember when you are breathing, moving, trying to get a pic, it's going to look off, crooked, whatever, it's on a human F***ing body ! relax, like I said, it looks great. it looks fuckin straight to me.
    • Hello  So 3 days ago i got done my tattoo. All seemed fine till today. I removed the tattoo protection sticker and i noticed its uneven! In my opinion its not written in one straight line. What annoys me the most is the last word ‚heart‘. Its so off the line and now i dont know what to do! Can i fix that or will it go back into line when healed? Please help me out.. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0DPNH-Sr9T7knIxZQWeSrMx-A
