Can my tattoo be re-worked?

Recommended Posts

About a month ago, I got a sleeve from a friend of a friend for $100 (Dumbest decision ever) because I thought why not. I was not using logic at the time because I was so eager and excited. 

Anyway, my tattoo is supposed to be a rose sleeve but they don't even look like roses, more like crappy origami. How easily do you think my sleeve could be re-worked if I went to a legitimate artist? Does it look to hard to fix without laser fading?

I don't mind having to stick to the rose design, I just want t to look good. I haven't consulted any artists in my city yet because I don't have money at the moment, so I thought I'd ask on here.

I've seen worse, but there is a good bit of dark in it - so re-working will depend on the quality of the artist, and you're gonna pay real $ for that. We might be able to send recommendations so you can get a consult and see. Where are you?

That's not even that bad at all! I was expecting a total train wreck. If you're fine with the layout of it then it should be easily fixable by someone competent as it wont really even be a total cover up. Some artists might say no to doing it though because it would be a boring commission for them.

When I heard $100 sleeve, I expected much worse. I think what's making it look like origami to you is just it has some harder edges than you would normally find on something soft and smooth like a rose. With some smoothing out of the shading, I think it could easily get a more appropriate texture and better convey the delicacy of the roses. Not a hard thing to fix at all for someone who specializes in black and gray, imo. Where are you based so we can suggest artists?

Hey guys I'm back :) Found 2 nearby artists who might be able to fix my sleeve..? Haven't consulted yet but will do when I have a new job :) 

1).A local reputable artists who specializes in black and grey.  I haven't seen any cover up or repair work on his page, but I think he could handle the job. 

 

 

2).  Another local artist who specializes in cover ups, though his cover up work is neo-trad and japanese.

    • 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.
