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

Recommended Posts

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.

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! :)

@littlefox1970 Sorry for the misunderstanding - but my quote of the word professional was for the OP. I don't have any problem with white on black. Often is the best course of action and it can look great, obviously. 

Ohhhh, I see .... that makes your intention altogether  different.  I too am sorry for the misunderstanding - for assuming your comment was directed at my post. Apologies for my reaction ~

    • Hello, I have always been a big fan of the interviews. Decided to join the forum and keep this thing alive!
    • Went and made my appointment for the next phase of my dragon half sleeve. Have to until Nov 11th because my artist is booked on large pieces for the next three weekends. 
    • Hmm, looks like an allergic reaction or infektion to me but if your doc says otherwise... You wrote it is about 2 month since you got that tattoo? Where did you get it? Was it done in a regular studio? Somehow it doesn't look professional to me. Very small, bad placement, no proper lining. Looks like it was done by an unexperienced inker, probably a friend or even by your own?
