What do you think of my new tattoo? Should I add anything to it?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

i just got this new tattoo on my inner bicep to my forearm, it’s a Phoenix (Chinese/Japanese style). What are your opinions? I feel it lacks detail. Should I ask the artist to add more detail? If so, where do you think?

 

Thanks

Welcome to LST.  How old is that tattoo?  It looks great to me and if it's as fresh as I think it is, let it settle in before you decide to add to/tweak it.  I'd be afraid that adding much else would make it too busy and hard to read.

Looks good I would even go so far as to say it would be cool to have less detail on the clouds and black them out to make the subjects pop a bit more 

Thank you! I didn’t even think about doing that

I agree, I don't think it looks bad at all.  It is your decision, it's on your body.  I'd just live with it for a while and not rush into any additions or changes.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I’ll do that

    • I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it. Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!
    • funny thing with me, in the 80's when I started getting tattooed, I started on my lower arms, from my biceps to my wrists first. LOL now they are everywhere on my body, actually in the last 10 years or so of getting tattooed I have been placing them in the most visible spots I can find, now running out of visible room. I'm lucky,my work is 100% good with visible tattoos and I love showing them in my work and personal life, many of my coworkers also have tattoos. I love the attention I get and conversations I have because of my tattoos.
    • Yep. It all depends on how the artist's design fits in/around your existing work.  In any case many laser techs charge by the minute (with a minimum), and both of those old ones aren't very big - so hitting the black shouldn't add much if any extra expense overall for each session. They are dark enough that you'll likely need 3-4 sessions to lighten it up a good bit.
