Got my first tattoo but I'm a bit concerned about the design...

Recommended Posts

So I got my memorial piece for my Grandpa that I've been planning and wanting for years. However, I'm a little concerned about the tree. Other people said it looks fine so maybe I'm freaking out and over-analyzing it since it's my first one? Also, I know tattoos aren't perfect and trees aren't perfect but I just think it looks a bit off.. or poorly done or something. I also paid $200 for it so I'm wondering if I paid too much if I end up having to get it fixed by someone else (if it would even be fixable). It's fairly small (a little bigger than palm - a little smaller than hand) so I get that it was hard to get a lot of little details in there.

Just wanted to get some opinions! 

Here's the link to the album in case the uploads don't work:

Sorry the pics aren't the best - very difficult to take a picture of your calf!

Honestly? There are 2 problems here. One is that is that the size is too small to pull off the idea, and the 2nd is that your artist didn't or wasn't capable of telling you that. 

It's still a nice memorial.

:( Shoot. I initially planned on it being a little bigger but he suggested this for the size. I assume there's no way to fix something like that so is it something I need to worry about looking absolutely horrendous or just rock it and go with it? I mean, not much I can do about it now lol.

Quit overthinking it. It's a nice piece. Don't ruin it for yourself.

My artist told me very early on that if you look at any tattoo long enough you'll find something wrong with it. Enjoy your tattoo, it's a nice tribute to your grandfather.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
