New tattoo crooked? Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm very panicky so please help! This tattoo is 3 weeks old and almost fully healed but the lines are patchy and crooked and it is so bothering me, not so much the imperfection of it but that it just looks     novice, its on the inside of my wrist. Would a touch up fix it? Can i still trust the original artist? Thank you xx

Hey there. Is this your first tattoo? Did the artist draw it on or was it s stencil? Did you provide a reference? A little context would be helpful. 

Do.not.panic. Tattoos by nature are applied by humans thus subject to imperfection which is why you can look at your tattoos under a microscope. Things can almost always be fixed but you need to breathe and relax...

The inside of your wrist is a tough spot. The skin is really thin there. Without knowing what it was supposed to look like, it's hard to judge. I'm in the minority here, but I wouldn't go back to an artist that screwed something up the first time. I just wouldn't have the confidence.

It's not a bad tattoo, but there is nothing about it that would send me back to the artist that did it.

Thanks guys, it was a stencil and kind of supposed to like this. But its the different line strokes that is annoying, it looked more solid when it was fresh but completely healed, the ink is patchy as you see. And yes it is my first tattoo.

will a touch up fix it? But I dont want to make it thicker, just fill in the ink gaps, make it smoother.

I agree you should find another artist and have this redone...maybe in conjunction with another tattoo so it doesn't feel like you're paying for the same tattoo twice so much. Just and Idea. But for sure have someone else rework this....

    • Hi everyone I'm just back from second session, there are still two more to go as my artist said. I only wish to hear your opinion about my artist's skill and style, appreciate honest opinions. 
    • Hey, thanks for the note.  Sorry for the delay - I just saw your reply. I’m looking at doing a half sleeve floral design black and gray.  No deep meaning, I just think it looks cool, is relatively timeless and “organic”.  My biggest concern is coming up with a design that doesn’t look too feminine.  It’s not exactly easy to cover up or laser a half sleeve! I met with a local artist... her work looks good, but she really rushed me a long and just seemed annoyed with every question I had... really annoyed with the whole conversation.  The design had great detail and probably would have looked good on someone - just wasn’t the style I was going for and communicating that to her would have been a very painful process, so I moved on. I also tried one of the online tattoo design sites just to have them take my concept from words to paper and further refine it.  Let me tell ya, that has been a very special process and likely a quick $114 down the drain.  Hah!  Here are a few inspiration photos... I’m thinking more negative space and not filling the background with ink.  Love shading and detail as well. I would love any thoughts or other inspiration photos that may help me along! In the meantime, I’m on a wait list waiting to get a virtual consult with an artist at the best shop in Minneapolis... will probably take at least a few weeks just to talk with him online.
    • It takes 4 - 6 weeks to heal a tattoo. Don't overthink it. You know that rough/dry patches are NORMAL during the healing process, right?
