Advice on existing tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. 

I’d like your opinions on this please. I’m booked in to continue with my arm, at the end of September. He’s a great artists, and works at a high profile shop. It’s recently been pointed out to me that part of a rose, I’ve already got, is a bit “penis like!” If you can’t see it, then great! It’s in the center and It is bugging me a little. Funny though, I’d never noticed it before and it’s 3-4 years old! 

Basically, shall I live with it, or ask if there’s anything that can be done at my next appointment? What do you all think?

Okay, did someone tell you that it looked like a penis or did you get the idea all by yourself? 

Yeah seriously, it was mentioned! In fact the same person said it twice. I thought nothing of it the first time, but had a look the second, and thought, “yes, it does indeed look like a penis”!!!  I’m not at all the obsessive type, but thought I’d get some opinions!

That's really rude to do that to someone. To do it twice is just gauche. I'd tell her to knock it off. As @scottyg said, if someone has a enough of tattoos and you look hard enough, you'll find something phallic.  

It was never said in a nasty way! Just a bit of husband and wife banter! Like I said, it hasn’t bothered me that much! It seems phallic tattoos are quite common around here, then! I appreciate people’s oppinion on the matter...

the only two options i like are to 1) leave it as is or 2) blackout the part that looks like a penis 😉

 

I have considered the blacking out option. It would depend on what the artist thinks... the only reason why it’s an issue to me is because it’s part of a piece I had done for our first son.... most people here seem to think leave it though.....

my bad. the blackout suggestion was a joke in reference to another recent thread. ignore me and leave the rose alone. it looks fine.

I see what your friend was saying, unfortunately.. You have 2 options:

accept it, like it

get it covered, or talk to a cover-up artist

Only you can decide.. Does it bother you so much that you think about it daily? Get it covered. No? don't worry about it.

Leave it. can be a private joke for you and your wife. I doubt anyone else will think it unless you say anything. Also you and your wife will be the only people who ever look at it in that much depth anyway,. 🙂

    • My pup is still alive, but I have a woodcut portrait of him on my thigh. I love my doggies! Maybe something simpler is in order? It sounds unnecessarily complicated and incongruous. Also, reddit tattoo guy is full of shit.
    • That isn't going to work in a space that small. As everyone has told you, live with it as it is or laser it until it can be properly covered.
    • So this is what I was thinking as far as the future of the tattoo. Whatcha think? Not this exactly but this is just the colors and sort of design I think I could put inside with the white.
