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!

    • Got a bit of a newbie question. I've got 3 rather decent size pieces on my lower leg, pretty much covering it. I know the typical response is "screw what everyone else thinks" but looking for a bit more of an answer, if possible. I don't have any issue with having these seen, wear shorts all the time and so forth. I have been on a waiting list for nearly a year now with Jay Quarles at Black 13 in Nashville, and my time is coming up this month to schedule a session in August. We discussed doing a shoulder to elbow piece. Which I do want. I just have this thing in my head about having work on my arms because 90% of the time, it will be visible, and this kinda changes things for me. Im 6'5" so with long arms, short sleeves cover about 40% of my upper arm, if that. Anyone had a similar thought process?   Partially it's my wife likening it to, my leg tattoos are just being in a serious relationship. but going to the arms is getting married to the process. idk if this is weighing on it too much for me.     dont wanna do it and not be 100% on it. debating letting my number pass, finishing my leg, then revisit the idea down the road. or just am i over thinking it, and will be good to go.
    • So far my armpit was the most painful, and this might sound crazy but my thigh would be a close second. That thing hurt like a bitch. I was pretty surprised I was in so much pain, considering I have a sleeve and the only part that really bothered me was my armpit. 
    • Hey! Welcome. It's really hard to say how many laser treatments you will need. Depend upon the ink(s) used, how deep they went, your body and the type of laser used. I'd find your artist as you are getting your laser treatments and ask them how light it needs to be.  Remember that laser treatments take time...several months or more as well as time to heal between treatments.  My advice? Start your laser treatments and get your artist lined up!
