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....

    • I did reply to this but for some reason it didn’t work.... so excuse me if for some reason I’ve posted this story twice.    a similar thing happened to me, but with my grandad. He unfortunately had a stroke and lost his marbles - previously a very proud man (an architect) and wasn’t overly fond of tattoos however.. I got a fairy tattooed on my shoulder about 10 years ago representing my grandparents because I went fairy hunting with them as a young child and it was such a special, magical time in my childhood that I wanted to keep a reminder.. anyhow. After he had his first stroke (unfortunately he had numerous) I showed him, he had tears in his eyes and stroked her gently and told me how beautiful she was. It really upset me but in a good way, because I knew at that moment it meant something to him too.    I also have “tomorrow’s another day” tattooed on my collarbone because it’s a saying my dad told me growing up (he suffered with depression, as did I growing up) so it was a constant reminder to try and remember that although today may be shit... tomorrow will hopefully be better. 
    • @oboogie that’s adorable. I want an old lady to touch my arm haha @Hollie yeah that seems to be the general consensus- doesn’t matter what people think as long as yr good with it. I think I was just seeking affirmation that it wasn’t a ‘bad tattoo’ / ‘done poorly.’ Ya know that pesky self doubt that a creeps around the brain!
    • I had the cutest little old lady come up to me in the supermarket right after I got my elbow done on my first sleeve (right arm). She went on and on about how pretty it was and even touched it. I told her thank you, but I told her not to touch it because it was still fresh. But she was so adorable and sweet.
