Is there anything I can add to make my tattoo look straighter ?

Recommended Posts

This is my first tattoo. When the tattoo artist placed the outline on me it looked straight but now when I look at it, it clearly goes downhill depending on how I am standing. I was wondering if there was something I could add under it to either make an illusion or make it look straighter.  Thanks.

what happens when both your arms are at your sides ?

 

because it kind of looks like your body is contorting a little with your arm up and your torso twisted a little and it may be causing the tattoo to look crooked.

It’s hard to see when my arm is completely straight down because it covers up the tattoo. But this is another picture when my arm is down. What do you think ? It still looks like it angles downhill to me.

I think it looks fine ! really ,looks good,

maybe down the road you can have it added to, for now, enjoy it, love it, show it off, and start planning your next tattoo.

even though still feeling my "remorse" it makes me laugh that you suggest planning the next tattoo :-)
seems like you're really, really into it! :8_laughing:

I agree, it's not bad at all.  It's the kind of thing that we view much more critically than anyone else.  Chances are 99 out of 100 people would never notice.

If all else fails, do what I do.  Make up some outlandish BS reason for it being that way and see if you can get them to believe it. lol

The bra line accentuates any misalignment. Either go without or find one with a lower edge of the band that runs parallel. Or grow to love it as it is.

and that's assuming the bra line is straight itself!

    • Did you read the whole thread? One of the people was diagnosed with  Sarcoid granulomas. I'm NOT a doctor, but my first thought is over moisturized. I'd try rubbing alcohol for a few days. If you're really worried, go see a doctor.
    • i got my tattoo while down range in Afghanistan by a fellow soldier conditions its Afghanistan so yea less then desirable but he did everything a shop would have done back in the states just in a room we built with a lot of dirt and god knows what else but i occasionally get the same bump as u   @jessicaRae all my tats are black as well tbh i want to believe its just the way the artists put it on the skin maybe went to hard or a weird angle or who knows what but i noticed everyone having this issue is with all black ink tats and only think i can think is it has to be the way the artists used the gun on our skin or else everyone in the world would have issues with their all black tats right? the bumps come and go a little painful to the touch like pimple or ingrown hair about to burst you know sorry no pics phones dead but if your really concerned get it looked at by a medical professional take care  
    • I have this exact same thing and I'm freaking out.  Can anyone shed some light on what to do, will it go away?
