Advice needed please..please shed some light on this for me

8 posts in this topic

Hi I haven't used this before but just needed some advice on behalf of my girlfriend. She went to a professional Tattooist in our local area which she has used before and been very happy. On this occasion the out come was something of pure shock and disappointment. The are in red marker was marked out by the artist and was meant to be shaded off the existing tattoo on the wrist up into soke roses he had done in the same session. 5 hours later and she was all done feeling the effects of a pretty long session under the needle as we all have done. When she first saw me she broke down in tears at the darkness and the way it is almost like a solid block. I reassured her it wouldn't be as bad as she thought and to let it heal. Basically can anyone comment as to what they think of the finished healed tattoo as I am deeply shocked and she is heartbroken and looking at a 3k bill to laser the area clear with picosure. Any comments or above would be most welcome of any nature..and I am in no way disrespecting any artist or the artist himself. He has apologised and offered to make it even blacker or refund for that area. Even said sorry. Please help as she is heartbroken

 

Thanks LST

 

Nick

I would be very disappointed also ... oh my ... and to add insult to injury, that tattoo that was covered up will show clearly through once healed.

To dwell on a solution rather than an irreversable deed ... you might consider seeking out a white on black professional rather than lasering out.  Just a thought.  Here are a couple examples for you.

Twas my pleasure. Bad experiences with tattoos can be very disheartening, for sure, but as you say there are artists out there who are very talented and do take pride in their work ... I pray that her next experience will be fulfilling! :)

Maybe I should have said "talented tattoo artist", rather than "professional".  Hopefully my poor command of the English language has not given the wrong impression.

I feel fortunate to have developed such a thick skin over the years ... heavy handed tattoo artists cause only minor irritation.

Hi Dan, I live in Quebec, Montreal to be precise.  I am fluently bilingual (French and English) with a little understanding of Spanish.  My first language is indeed English and my response to SStu was indeed sarcastic.  I don't usually resort to sarcasm ... but some instances seem to be especially appropriate for it.  

Whereabouts are you?  I was looking at the pictures you posted today and was admittedly a bit jelly ... some friends you have there ... Oliver Peck and Chris Nunez ,,,v ery cool ... lucky you! :)

    • My uncle had a bad ass chest piece of a sancha wearing a sombrero he scored in prison. It was very similar to Danny Trejo's chest piece. I was about 4 years old, & kinda understood it was a drawing that never erased. I was intrigued.

      My mom never liked to talked about it, she said it was a mistake for him, but I knew he was proud of it. My uncle got caught dealing 14000 dollars worth of coke to an undercover. Betrayed by his best friend. He was than later deported back to Mexico, where I think he got another tattoo of an acoustic guitar on his upper arm.
    • My mom was furious, & didn't speak to me for a few months, & said she disowns me as a son.

      I was 21, I had gotten two tarot cards on each of my upper arms during May just hitting the 100+ degree summer. I had kept it a secret for a few weeks but she got suspicious to why I was wearing long sleeve shirts during this dead heat weather. I couldn't take it so I eventually showed her.

      My mother was raised in a small christian farm town in Mexico, her views were very traditional in which I can respect. She freaked out & kicked me out. Now she refuses to have me any where near her side of the family, especially back home in Mexico where my 98 y/o grandpa resides. Who I would love to explore his life and our family origins. Definitely a bummer.

      But that is just who she is & I accept her. There no changing her, believe me I tried. I love my mother to death like any other son would. She's the only one I got, & my father passed on when I was 3. But I imagine he wouldn't be too fond of it either considering his brother was quite upset with my tattoos.
    • Howdy, My name is Said coming from Las Vegas. I've been having the good joy of drawing & painting for the most part of my life & am now interested in building a portfolio for the hopes of approaching an apprenticeship. I've been eyeballing around the forums for some months now & I've decided to finally join. I am honestly excited to learning the values, history, & good ethics of the craft. Really anything to build the right mindset & attitude. Overall, I look forward to interacting with you guys & absorbing as much information. I appreciate Scott Sylvia for the interview videos & the spark of this site, for its has helped shed light into the craft.   Heres some of my few pieces i've had the pleasure of doing for bands. Feel free to throw in some constructive critiscism!
