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!

    • I’m currently working on my sleeve and I’m about halfway done with it. I noticed now that there’s a small smell on my tattoo. I can’t smell it from a distance and only can smell it when I get super close to my tattoo. I’m just concerned with the thought of an infection but I’ve done everything the same I have with my 7 other tattoos. I have no unusual pain with it and it isn’t red or inflamed. Just would like a little advice on what to do? 
    • Hey! Wouldn't by chance be going to the empire state ny tattoo expo would ya?  In any case, i did a 3 day marathon and boy was it tough. i did the ole soap and a balm that my artist provided. With that being said, you should 100% ask your artist(s) as they know how they tattoo and how their tattoos heal for the most part. They should tell you what to do but i've heard many great things about saniderm. Best of luck!
    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
