Ok thanks, 

Here i go; 

Hi everyone, I got a tattoo done a few months ago but unfortunately had a reaction to the shading ink as was contaminated. I've used all sorts of topical creams and doctor suggested laser removal but even after trying a session there is scarring left so now I want to just add colour to hide the red blemishes and they may disappear in the future as my skin heals/changes. I have had colour before so I'm not allergic. Any design advice appreciated.

I have spent 9 months on topical creams and I am just fed up of it now so ophing some colour in the shaded areas will hide it and then im done.

Pics attached.  I am due in on Saturday at 1pm, the original artist has admitted that it was due to contamination during a break in which I looked into and it is right.  So i do trust them to fix it for me and it avoids the cost.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Has the artist/shop done anything to make good on their use of contaminated ink? Are you sure they no longer use that product or was the contamination because of poor hygiene practices? Are they charging you for this work?

They got broke into so trusted a friend to lend some but had been left in the sun so a few people got same reaction and yes they aren't charging and could of denied it.

just need some advice as I think colour will hide it and it may heal better over time. Thanks

    • In my mind you've already got the acceptable limit = "inspiration". If you take that picture some a willing tattooist and say "I want this EXACTLY as this is" and they trace it out then it's just reproduced artwork, like a cartoon character.  If you take that picture to a qualified artist and say I'd like a goat's head and raven similar to this then you're likely to get an original piece of art. 
    • hi all! it's been a minute since i've been online - hope you're all doing well and are safe! ☺️ i wanted to ask, in your opinion, at what line does inspiration become ripping off another artist? is it okay to see someone's art and commission another artist to do their own take or spin on a concept? what are your thoughts? for example, i really want to get black phillip from the vvitch tattooed on my leg. i love the composition, styling, and overall design of this artist's interpretation. however, i would not want my own artist to blatantly copy someone else's design? i'd want them to incorporate their own ideas, styles, color palette, etc. to the table. is this okay in your opinion? i know that people feel strongly about copying (as they should) and i don't want to step on anyone's toes!
