Is it really that bad?

Recommended Posts

I recently got a new tattoo, and I have been feeling pretty bad about it. I loved the sketch, but I feel like it came out with some mistakes (The right side looks weird to me), it’s thicker than I wanted, and looks distorted when I bend my arm. I’m embarrassed of it because it’s not as nice as I hoped it would be. Right now I just want it removed eventually because I feel like I hate it, but I don’t know if I should just get used to it. Is it really that bad?

IMO you won't find two little twigs that are mirror copies of each other in nature,IMO it's looks great the way it is !

I think it looks better the way it is than it would if each side was identical.

exactly!

If you want perfection, don't get tattoos. NO tattoo is perfect. It's not a drawing on a piece of paper.  OF COURSE it distorts when you bend your arm, your skin is not fixed, it moves and stretches. I don't see anything wrong with that tattoo at all. Take a deep breath and live with it for a few months.

I like it! In six months you won't even be thinking about it. Like Hogrider said, there is no such thing as a perfect tattoo and the idea that a tattoo will stay the same forever, or that a tattoo can even be "perfect", is a myth. Welcome!

It's fine. Take a breath. Like everyone here has said, if you are looking for perfection then tattoos are not for you. Oh, and laser absolutely sucks. It's expensive and it could take multiple treatment over the course of a year to fade it. It's a cute first tattoo!

This looks really nice... symmetry is overrated. Nothing is ever fully symmetrical. Plus, I know a few girls who wish theirs had turned out as nicely as yours if that's any consolation!

    • Hi there. First of all I think you have a very nice tattoo. I can very much relate to the feelings you're going through as my mind went crazy when I had my back piece done a little more than a year ago. I was obsessed with it. It felt like it wasn't part of my body and I wanted it gone. It took some time to get used to it and to accept it as part of me. My tattoo wasn't just an impulse decision, yet it felt like something too big, too dark, too weird on my body, I felt like i let down my family and kids and that I'm a freak. Well, now, quite some time later I can tell you I got used to it and I like my tattoo very very much and I'm back to being me, the strong, confident me.  Give it time. If you feel weird right now it's ok. You'll be better! Don't be hard on yourself and keep living your normal life :-).
    • Alright thanks, I was just told it was going to be lower than 1600 euros total, we're more looking at 3 000 ish but hey i'm very happy with the results so far so cant complain 
    • Unless it's very painful and has a bad odor, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't see anything that indicates any kind of problem.
