Tattoo regret

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody (and sorry for the topic just before, I hadn't understand the working of the site). I had a big piece on my chest, and when it was finished I got a shock. Too big, too dark, I have real difficulties to accept it and think of laser removal (if this even possible) or cover-up (same??). But first of all, I wanted to have opinions on the piece and on how it integrate to my body, because I'm ashamed of it and haven't really show it to people. So, waiting for your feedbacks...imageproxy.php?img=&key=a107a9c0af395ecd

Thanks for your feedback! The artists did an amazing job, but my brain just doesn't adjust to it. It's only when it was finished that it hit me, 4x4 hours, and all this black. 

Thinking of going full upper body suit to balance all that. What would the best part to begin with, right arm or shoulders?

yeah, the good thing about a slow process like a backpiece is you adjust over time, as opposed to being hit all at once, like you're experiencing. again, own that shiiiiiit man!!

I would first take a breath before planning the next piece. easier said than done, but try to absorb the excitement about your current piece before hatching your next....

but when you do, I'd say fill out your arms.

but there aren't any rules for that.

thank you all for your feedbacks, it really helps me to slowly accept it. So you don't think it's odd looking, or that it's "hiding" my chest instead of decorate it?

I've got a DUDE on my entire back. it freaked me out when I first saw it. but after a while I got used to having a Buddhist deity on my back, which is what I had wanted to begin with.

I think a great tattoo compliments rather than hides the lines of the body. and I think yours is a great tattoo.

Thank you all for your feedbacks (yeah that nipple was painful though...but not sure if I should have left it pink or not). So I guess it would be a shame to laser it bit, to fade it? Some parts are 3 months olds, some 4, some 6. Not sure if it's going to look less dark...

Don't do anything for at least eight months to a year. That way, it should all settle in and look similar. It will mellow...they always do! Do.not.laser. It's expensive, uber painful and most likely won't get you the desired results. Why risk messing it up when in time it will settle in and look even more beautiful?

Yes. Most people complain about fading.

That is a great tattoo. I wouldn't change a thing. I agree with @Gingerninja, give it a year and see how you feel. Just my two cents, but I've seen more people F*** up good tattoos by screwing with them than I've seen people improve them.

Sorry, but can't relate to tattoo regret. I always loved my back piece as well as the rest. In my opinion, there is just something about a big, bold piece that you can't get from a bunch of smaller images.

You should be whipping your shirt off every chance you get saying, "Hell yea, I'm the man!"

    • Hey everyone, just wanted to give a quick update. I decided to go through with the tattoo on this coming Monday; but from what I've seen on instagram today, it looks like a family member has passed away and they will be taking some time off, so it may mean I'll be rescheduled again.  Would it be ok if I asked for my deposit back, I feel like it may be too heartless to ask, seeing as how it obviously was out of their control and they lost a family member. But I've used my last vacation day to reschedule with them and most likely won't be free until March next year. I think I should wait until they email me before I decide, but I would want to try to make an appointment with another artist I like asap to not waste my day off. Thoughts?
    • $70k could do a lot of real good, out there . . .
    • Hi all,   Long time posting here (I must post up my latest pieces here).   Myself and the better half our currently touring South East Asia for a few months and starting to get the itch for another tattoo...   Where we have left to visit is: Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines.   Does anyone have any particular shops or artists they could recommend?   We hope to make it to Melbourne at the end of the trip to visit friends (finances permitting!) so will definitely be getting work there if I don't get anything I'm Asia.   Thanks again, Paddy   Sent from my CPH1823 using Tapatalk
