What to do with this tattoo?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Any ideas/advice you could provide on this would be a major help as I’m at a loss with what to do with this tat. 

The upper half is a cover of an old black tribal that is just too dark. The red in the flowers has black ink seeping through them and, after a couple of lasering sessions, I’ve made it worse by making parts patchy. 

I mostly like the bottom half but I want to do something with the top that would make it look better. I would also like to do something to improve the patchy bits on the inner arm (above the purple flower). Any ideas? 

I would be willing to do some more lasering, if necessary, or could white ink be the savior? 

Let me know if anyone has any ideas, thanks. 

Steve

I would not do anything else with that until you get a qualified tattoo artist to work out a plan to fix it. Take your time, get lots of referrals. That is not going to be easy or cheap to fix. I think any fix is going to require lazer removal.

Good Luck

Thanks Hogrider, and I hear what you're saying. It's going to take a bit of work all right. What do you mean by later removal? 

I was hoping there were some qualified tattoo artists on here though that might be able to offer some insight into what I could do. Problem is, I live in Dubai, where you can't just find a tattoo parlour on the street, so I'm hoping for some info online. 

Cheers,

S.

We are mostly collectors, not artists. I tend to agree with Hogrider. Start with some laser.

    • Hey. First of all I'm new to this forum. So, hello! 🙂 

      Ok så I'm getting a new tattoo (9.9.2018 booked) 
      And i have a specific tattoo base i know, but now i thought i want some advice/hints what would fit in  (my head is totally jammed) 

      So im getting these texts: Honor, Compassion, Truth, Wisdom, Courage, Loyalty, Respect.
      That is 100% sure, swells text fonts are locked in.
      But.. the tattoo will be dull if there is only text, and id like some ideas of what kind of image/ (s) would fit in with that.. 
      Size of tattoo is about Shoulder tattoo that reaches towards the elbow and to upper back and front. (hope you get the picture of location, my hand is swinging ike crazy here trying to show you)

      Will add a picture of the text fonts here aswell, where i got the idea from. (the text "seven virtues" might not include in tattoo, depends a lot of what filler / image(s ) i eventually will do.. 
      Hopefully i can get at least som kind of hints or maybe pictures of same stylish tattoos.. 🙂

      Thanks you in advance. 
      Oh im a Guy, and theme of the tattoo could be more symbolic, not just tribals and stuff 🙂
    • The Stewart Robson dragon penis tattoo is remarkable, intriguing and brilliant in the technical sense. There is an old thread from many years ago on LST "Areas Of Your Body You WON'T Tattoo", page 11 has Stewart's comments on that tattoo. If you search the internet you could probably find Stewart's detailed blog post and pic of it. I think that was that gentleman's first tattoo and he was prepared and had a firm vision which Robson executed with amazing skill . You could also search for Matt Gone (checkerboard man), I've talked to him in person about his tattoos. His website has some pretty graphic details about his underwear zone tattoos. You will probably have more luck getting info (or trolling) on the BMEzine backpages.  Black out "piercer arm" is one thing...but "percier arm" penis is another ! LOL just pierce your cock or do a head split if you're feeling that kinky.  
    • looking at the S02 eps on my Xfinity menu, it seems like this season doesn't include all the folks on the commercial or prior posts from Chris Grosso's IG (e.g. no DETH or Treviño). i guess the good news is, we should be getting another season?! bad news is, we gotta wait for the eps on these tattoo legends.
