Having second thoughts

Recommended Posts

Just kidding. But I have a sinking feeling when I look at the contrast in bold dark with my faded and shaded tattoos on my arms. I could use some reassurance in terms of style and placement. I really like the tattoo on its own but am now trying to figure out where to add on my traps and top of shoulders as the Hawk looks low to me now. 

What do you think?  Take a chill pill?  Looks alright?  Slow down before adding more or I am right in thinking it looks a little odd with the space above?

 

photo was taken at a downward angle and I'll try to take another photo do you can see my other work to see what I'm talking about.

looks great,I would leave it alone for a while,

rethink adding around it in 6 months,IMO it looks good by itself.

and it will look like your other tattoos in time too,it just looks like that now because it's new.

I'm sure your other tattoos looked bold and dark when they were new too.

Thank you Dan!  It took almost seven hours and I got it done in one. You reassure me in that I was thinking the same regarding newness makes it stick out more.

    • Hi, Guys, so i just a got a cover up 3 weeks ago, i'm feeling kinda weird .. anxious and to be honest depressed.. cause i can't get used to it still, i freaked out the day after .. and i can't stop obsessing about it.. it's all i think 24/7 ... you see, this is my second tattoo .. feels like the first cause it's a cover up .. the past one i had it for 9 years it was misspelled the (tattoo artist fucked up) i was so depressed about that for very long time even had one laser treatment but didnt see any good results so i quit..... i dont wanna admit i regret it .. cause i feel so confuse, it's just i think "omg is it to big?" does it look good on me?" i just find it new errors everytime i look at it... and i don't wanna feel this way, but sadly it's how i feel .. just wanted to talk about it with someone .. cause i can't with friends cause i feel embarresed. PLEASE, IF YOU DONT HAVE NICE THINGS TO SAY.. DONT SAY ANYTHING PLEASE, CAUSE I ALREADY FEEL LIKE SHIT .. NO NEED TO MAKE ME FEEL WORST. i'm so down that i have even consider suicide 😞
    • The artist that did my half sleeve Asian tiger used grey ink. It does have a different look compared to thinned black. Artists at another shop noticed right away and asked about it. To me it looks more opaque than dilute black.
